If you ever find yourself strung out, frustrated, or at the end of your tether, then you’ll be very pleased to learn that crystals can help with that.
Because sometimes telling kids to hurry up, or simply willing the traffic to get moving, or telling the laptop where it can stick itself, just isn’t the answer.
Sometimes in life, things are set to try us, and we must persevere even when the going gets tough, and you haven’t got the time now to do everything that should have been done yesterday.
Sometimes what the situation needs is not so much haste, but, ironically, patience. It is only when people are calm, balanced and centered, moving with the flow of time rather than against it.
The purpose of this article is to tell you about various powerful crystals that can be used to harness the patience that does, in fact, exist in your core, so that you can carry on about your day with a sense of inner peace that won’t so much as get nudged.
And without further ado, let’s get straight to it!
Many crystal collectors have amethyst in their collection because it’s a good all-round crystal that can be used for many different things (see also ‘First 8 Crystals That You Should Begin Your Collection With‘). Technically, it’s a variety of quartz.
If you ask me, it’s one of the most beautiful crystals out there, and simply holding it in your hand and admiring the deep to light purple colors is enough to begin to relax your body and mind.
It can reduce stress and anxiety, and as it does so, your feelings of frustration simply melt away. In fact, amethyst is so good at settling your thoughts that many people use it as an aid to help them get to sleep.
It’s also able to dissolve negative energy and alleviate your perception of both physical and emotional pain. It is such a comforting crystal to have on your person.
Every list of crystals for patience on the internet mentions howlite. Developing patience and perspective is what this stone is best known for.
If you’re not already familiar with howlite, it’s basically a beautiful, opaque, usually monochrome, white crystal that has dark streaks going through it, giving it the appearance of marble. It is also sometimes referred to as magnesite.
Howlite is particularly handy for promoting patience because it helps to dispel any anger that is directed both towards you and to those around you, which is exactly what you need.
It works by absorbing negative energy in your aura and vicinity, leaving behind a feeling of calm, reducing stress levels and feelings of anxiety at the same time.
It can also help to clear any negative streams of chatter in your mind, helping you to slow down and stop for a while, encouraging mindfulness and the ability to take an outside perspective.
3. Green Aventurine
If you’re familiar with such things as the law of attraction, then you may have decided to manifest your wishes. However, few things manifest immediately, and people often get frustrated when they can’t get what they want straight away.
That’s where green aventurine comes in. Green aventurine is a powerful gemstone to use for patience, and in particular patience with waiting for your manifestations to arrive in your life.
It will enable you to feel more positive and help you to trust in the universe and have an inner knowing that what’s right for you will certainly come your way. It provides the bearer with confidence, trust and faith, and the belief that your wishes will, in due course, come to pass.
Green aventurine can calm nervousness, anger, and irritation, and instead provide a soothing effect and act as an emotional anchor for stability, grounding, and centering.
Fluorite is one of my favorite crystals. It is just so beautiful with its green, purple and blue hues. It’s also a very powerful crystal when it comes to harnessing your patience…
If someone or something is bothering you, and you find yourself feeling rather irritated or frustrated, then holding some fluorite or wearing it as jewelry will detoxify your negative energy, and replace it with a more positive energy, bringing with it patience and peace of mind.
Fluorite also has the ability to boost mental clarity, which is great if this is a factor of your frustration, and will promote better focus and concentration at the task at hand.
It serves to reduce tension, stress and anxiety, making room for contentment and happiness to seep in.
5. Blue Lace Agate
I don’t know about you, but for me, just looking at some blue lace agate can help to calm me almost instantly.
It’s beautiful, pale pastel blue aesthetic, with its bands of complimenting white shades and hues are very relaxing to look at, and if you have a smooth one it can also make for a very relaxing palm stone too.
Blue lace agate endows the bearer with a sense of peace and calm, that can be just the remedy when you find yourself overcome with irritation or frustration, effectively dispelling these feelings, and instead providing a feeling of acceptance.
It is known to stimulate the throat chakra and to enable the wearer to be more articulate and speak their truth, and that together with its powerful calming effect will help you to use the right words toward a better outcome for all.
6. Green Jade
Life isn’t always fair, and sometimes you just have to go along with what life throws at you, no matter how frustrated you can get with less than perfect circumstances. And green jade is there to assist with this realization, and develop patience in this regard.
It removes feelings of restlessness and replaces it with feelings of peace, tranquility, and acceptance, so that you can move forward with clarity and understanding.
This crystal is symbolic of peace and wisdom, and can rid you of any emotional turmoil that you may be going through, and restore your emotional balance, centering you.
This is because it is aligned with your heart chakra, and has a vibrational energy that will remove energy blockages and stimulate the chakra to better effect.
Mookaite is actually a form of jasper, but it differs from more commonly found jasper in both texture and color. Mookaite has vibrant tones of fire hydrant red, pinks, lilacs, mustard and cream. Its earthy beauty is truly a sight to behold.
It’s a powerful gemstone for grounding your energy, and anchoring you into the present moment, taking you away from daydreams of negative thoughts and anxieties, and bringing you back to the here and now.
And it also brings with it a sense of peace, and tranquility, and enables the bearer to reflect calmly on the situation before you, and see things accurately, so that you can see the good as well as the bad, make the right decisions, and accept the things that you cannot change.
And in using nurturing mookaite crystal, you become infused with a sense of deep knowing that everything is working out in exactly the way it should for all involved
8. Black Tourmaline
This black crystal may have a dark appearance, but don’t let that fool you. Black tourmaline is a powerful crystal for expelling dark and negative energies from the surrounding area, including in your body and aura.
It’s a powerful cleanser and protector against negativity, effectively clearing any wanted energy in the environment. But as well as shielding you from outer toxic energies and deflecting them, it also helps you to overcome negativity within you, too.
This is why it’s such a good stone for imbuing patience, because it rids the air of any dark energy.
It is associated with the root chakra at the base of the spine, and with feelings of security and survival. For this reason, it’s often used by those who are traveling to protect against danger and accidents. And it may help you to take a better attitude toward traffic.
Lepidolite may be a powerful stone, but it exudes a very gentle feeling to the bearer, providing you with deep emotional healing and nurturing.
It counteracts feelings of stress, irritation and low mood, thanks to the feelings it instills instead of calm and patience. It can also help you to listen to the words of others with care and compassion.
It’s particularly handy to have to hand if it is you that you are frustrated or irritated with because its soothing and nurturing energies serve to help you release previous unhelpful behavior patterns and regrets, and embrace a new you, making the transition easy and imbuing a sense of self-acceptance along the way.
It empowers self-control, and helps you to take proper accountability for your actions, clearing energetic blocks, and enabling you to make a conscious effort to change, while at the same time also promoting a positive frame of mind for the future that lies ahead of you.
Avoiding stress, frustration and irritation can be tough at times, but if you already have one or some of these crystals at home, be sure to charge them, so they can help whenever needed.
