Are you looking for a crystal to stop nightmares? This simple yet highly effective crystal ritual can be used to banish nightmares, disturbing dreams or recurring bad dreams.
I’m often asked about crystals to stop nightmares, especially when they are recurring or bothering someone’s child. The cause of nightmares may vary and although they may be rooted in fears, anxiety or trauma, nobody needs to suffer.
Can Crystals Help Me?
My method only requires one crystal to stop nightmares… In my experience and that of those who have tried the technique, I am going to share, crystals can be very effective.
I knew someone who had terrible recurring nightmares. I told them what to do and they admitted that they were not sure it would work for them. Their nightmare stopped straight away and they didn’t come back.
They also reported other emotional and mental health benefits which I believe were caused by a deep cleansing of their aura and mental body. This crystal and the specific way I use it seems to syphon off attached negative energy which may be causing nightmares.
How Does It Work?
This crystal ritual is a form of crystal healing done while we sleep to heal and clear the source of the nightmares. Over the years I have developed this simple ritual to further enhance its effectiveness. I am sharing the most up to date version here.
Please note I’m not a doctor and this is not medical advice. This is a purely holistic and spiritual technique. If nothing else has worked for you, this may be worth a try. What have you got to lose?
Optional Step: Space Clearing
This step is not required for this technique to work but it is something you will benefit from if you’re not already doing this. If you do have the time it’s a good idea to cleanse the room you or the person suffering from nightmares sleeps in.
How you cleanse your room is completely up to you. You could smudge with ethically sourced White Sage, Palo Santo or any cleansing incense like Frankincense, Sandalwood or Dragon’s Blood (a tree resin). I recommend this is done early in the day and that the room is well aired during and after with open windows.
Alternatively, you could use a Tibetan Singing Bowl, Crystal Singing Bowl, Tingshas or even a brass bell. You can also use smudge sprays or any cleansing spray which use essential oils and or gem essences.
What you are doing is cleansing any lingering unbalanced or negative energy from pervious nightmares or the past. This creates a better energetic atmosphere for sleep.
A Crystal To Stop Nightmares
You will need a medium-sized natural Citrine Crystal Point. A Smoky Citrine or Citrine with a smoky phantom formation inside it works really well too. The point can be raw or polished. Please see my guide regarding Natural Citrine Vs Heat Treated.
For stopping nightmares I recommend you only use natural Citrine because of its deeply detoxifying properties and higher vibration. I also do not recommend substituting this crystal for something else. This is what works and why I’m sharing this with you. Please trust me on this one.
Ritual: How To Use A Crystal To STOP Nightmares
Everything in this ritual has a purpose and reason behind it so please follow my steps and avoid making changes for the best results.
In the evening or before going to bed take a warm shower or a bath. This relaxes you and helps release the energy of the day. Bathing products that contain relaxing natural essential oils or extracts of Lavender or any cleansing herbs are ideal.
Make sure that your Citrine Crystal Point is cleansed before you use it. You don’t want any old or negative energies clogging your crystal.
Before you go to bed hold your crystal and focus on your intention to end all nightmares and have peaceful dreams or you could program the crystal for this purpose. With a child, you can go through the process of focusing on the intention with them. You can also program the crystal for them in advance too if you wish.
Place the crystal on the bedside cabinet or side table next to your side of the bed or the side of the person being treated. Make sure the termination point of the crystal is facing away from the head and body (see the diagram below).
The Next Morning
In the morning remember to cleanse the crystal. This technique usually works after one night but I think it’s better to repeat this ritual every night for three nights.
You could repeat this for up to seven days if you have serious problems but after that remove the crystal from next to the bed. If you ever experience nightmares again in the future, you can repeat the process.
