You have your dream journal, and you’ve recorded a few dreams, but you feel that you are ready for the next step. Maybe it’s time to add the magical energy of the stone spirits to your dreaming. The use of stones and crystals has long been used to facilitate and enhance the dream state, and they are fairly easy to obtain.
Stimulates vivid dreaming, past life dreaming and dream recall.
Stimulates dreams that bring insights and understanding.
A form of quartz, the Herkimer Diamond is a powerful harmonic force, attuning itself with the stones it is used with. Also known a dream stone, it’s a stone of telepathy and clairvoyance, and it enhances the dream state. Pair with the Ruby for a powerful dream time combination.
Known as the dreaming stone, Jade not only helps you to remember your dreams, but it also helps to give insights into the meaning of your dreams and helps to release blocked emotions during the dream state.
Helps one to remember dreams.
Stimulates dream recall and the ability to understand dreams.
A stone of psychic development, the lapis stimulates clarity and understanding of dreams, along with providing a powerful connection between the dreamer and the dream state.
Strengthens the dream state, and enhances dream recall.
The stone of “happy dreaming,” the opal helps you to move into your potential and purpose.
Stimulates dreaming and dream recall.
As an amplifier, quartz can help to stimulate dreaming, and enhance dream recall. When paired with any other dreaming stone, it helps to amplify that stone’s abilities.
Stimulates both the vividness of the dream, and dream recall abilities.
Brings intensity and lucidity to dreams; allows greater understanding, and helps to protect against distressing dreams. (When paired with Kyanite, helps to facilitate dreamtime problem solving, and connection with dreamtime guides.)
Black tourmaline is a psychic protector, and can be useful if you tend to be easily influenced or bothered by outside energies.
To use stones to enhance your dreaming state, it is recommended that you place them in a small bag, and then place that bag in your pillowcase. Sleeping with loose stones may result in the loss of a valued helper (at least until the next time you do laundry!).
For those who already enjoy working with stones, and those who have not yet been introduced to their healing powers, using stones to enhance the dreamtime can be an experiment in creativity, and a bit of an adventure. So, safe travels and sweet dreams!
