Becoming CALM with Crystals
Ok we get over excited , we get stressed, the boss is hyper. The principal is insane, the spouse wants to buy a boat and somehow you have agreed to complete two or three huge projects by an impossibly early deadline ARRRRGH!!!
One of the most frequently sought after things are calmness , stress relief and inner peace. We seek a whole range of relaxation , inner peace and mellowness . There are many different kinds of conditions which fall under the general category of stress . There are all kinds of methods for relaxing and restoring calm.
We don't always have the time or opportunity do a whole spa like relaxation treatment. A facial , a massage, a long soak in a scented bath, aromatherapy, gentle music , meditation. These are good and helpful methods sometimes not practical .
Stopping to smell the flowers will often help especially if the flowers are Lavender or Jasmine . We need to make time to take time to relax and relieve our tensions. It need not take as long as you may think.
We all need to step back sometimes and grab a moment to restore our inner calm . A cup of tea, whether regular green or Chinese tea or an herbal tea, such as Chamomile or Lemon Balm , Linden and Passionflower are good choices for moderate stress, tension, nerves or over anxiety. Chamomile tea is the classic for kids but they don't like it as much as a nice lemon and mint tea, slip a bit of lemon balm in if you have it.
There are several commercial blends of stress relieving tea and most work well for mild to moderate stress . A heavier duty tea for reducing stress might also include Valerian. There are other formulas for a tranquilizing effect . If you need something strong in order to get relief more than occasionally, You might be well served by learning various relaxation exercises and even consulting a specialist.
The Bach flower essences have many formulas which will contribute appropriate energies some suggestions are Aspen , Chamomile, Lavender and Rescue Remedy.
There are many different aromatherapy oil blends available for calming . These include oils for infusing and for the bath as well as massage oils . you may put a drop or two of an oil or oil blend on your pillow. Chamomile, Dill, Lavender These also are very calming in blends .

A good calming blend that is suitable for children is a combination of 10 drops of lavender with 5 drops of chamomile. Other oils which help release nervous tension include bergamot, melissa, frankincense, and sandalwood. Lavender ,tangerine and rose oils are among calming scents for kids
Music and or ambient and nature sounds can be extremely powerful for relaxation and there are a multitude of possible choices.
Exercise of many kinds or dance can also help especially when part of the issue is due to an excess of energy . Practices such as Tai Chi and or Yoga or meditation can help promote stable calm and inner peace over the long term and reduce one's susceptibility to stress.
Pink, green, sky blue are among the most calming colors. Wearing or surrounding yourself with these colors and looking at colored objects or using coloring to tint your bath water one of these soothing colors.
There are many meditations and visualizations done with green as the dominant color and influence. Visualizing sitting by a verdant pool in a forest clearing is a common meditation for calm and for bringing in ones awareness of being part of nature. Another similar visualization is to imagine yourself on a tropical island with the warm aqua sea lapping a white sand beach and the soft breeze carrying exotic scents to you as you hear the gentle calls of song birds . You can extend one of these visualizations in as much detail as you want and set up a key word or gesture to return you to the imagery to use to return you to the image and the relaxed state it induces quickly.There are quite a few stones which can be held, carried or used in various treatment forms for helping restore calm and equilibrium .
