Human beings are often prone to some kind of destructive behavior – and it usually is expressed in the form of addictions or obsessions. These kinds of behavior usually allow people to forget themselves in time of hardships and stress, and it is understandable why people tend to get caught in constant smoking, alcoholism or, in the most extreme cases – drug addictions. Yet even if we do understand this behavior (we are all humans, after all), we don’t really justify it. Smoking and drinking have both short-term and long-term health effects which are destructive for our health and that is why our number one advise if you become addicted to any kind of substance is try to stay away from it. Of course, easier said than done, and overcoming addiction is extremely challenging. Today we are going to talk about how you can use the power of healing crystals to help you in the fight.
First of all, we need to determine how people usually get rid of such dangerous addictions. There are several popular ways on how it is usually done, however, the most effective ones include abstinence from alcohol/drugs or its replacement with something else. In the first case, people rely on the strength of their will and their motivation to live healthy and substance-free life, especially if their addiction has led to some serious harm to themselves, their family and/or loved ones. If a person can clearly see cause and effect related to addiction, it becomes easier to get a grip on yourself and let go of your addiction. The sad thing here is that for this change to happen, that harm needs to happen, and that usually means some amount of pain is involved, and nobody needs that. However, without this pain a person usually cannot see any fault in his actions and cannot even admit that he is addicted to something and that is usually why people are hesitant to give up their bad habits, as they believe that they have complete control until it is already too late.
In case of replacement of a substance with something else, it may seem at first, that this way is easier to implement. The most obvious example is a nicotine patch for smokers, however, you can find that people, who try to quit their bad habits tend to replace it with everything. General overeating and eating snacks are the most common things, that is why people who quit smoking usually gain weight afterwards. Other negative replacements include gambling, videogames addiction, drinking sugary drinks and other activities, which will shift a person’s attention from the urges to take a substance he/she is addicted to. Of course, there are a lot of neutral or even positive replacements, like turning to religion, hiking and outdoors activities, sports, spending more time with your loved ones and so on, however, this remains a fact – a person still needs something to be addicted to and his/her behavior is still dictated not by his/her own motivation but by aftershocks of the addictions and that can remain for many years.
As crystal healing is known to help in many areas of everyday life, it’s no wonder that it can also help with substance abuse. Crystals and work with them can also serve as a great replacement, yet the ultimate goal when you work with crystals is an overall expulsion of any addiction and irrational urges. Crystals can bring a person a motivation and strength to fight his/her addictions. However, different crystals bring different properties to the table, so the effects from a crystal healing with a specific crystal can vary. Here are the most popular crystals to fight addictions:
Amethyst. Amethyst may be the most famous crystal to fight addictions and obsessions, and it has been used for this purpose since the Ancient times.
