I have seen several “Crystals for COVID” images passed around the internet lately. Not to say these are not helpful and while I do believe energy can be healing, I also think we need to understand this is a disease never faced before, so there is so much we do not know. I do not want to give the impression that a crystal will cure this or make a mockery out of those who have lost loved ones.
The death toll is staggering and no crystal, my friends, will be a cure all. I feel if we can deconstruct the symptoms and use common sense, then we can work to play defense in advance. In other words, shore up our health defenses and do what is necessary to lower our risks on a daily basis.
COVID is an energy just like everything is energy. Our job is to find a way to counteract this energy.
There are several symptoms of COVID to address. And since this is also cold and flu season, these suggestions can aid in strengthening the body, shoring up the immune system and give those lungs some clean, fresh air. Many of the crystals listed are “two-fers” meaning they can be used for more than one symptom, which gives you a great deal of choice on which ones appeal/connect with you.
Preventative Measures for Symptoms of Cold, Flu and COVID
The first thing that goes under attack during the cold, flu and COVID season is the Immune System. If it is not strong or is compromised due to ongoing health issues, it is the most vulnerable and should be shored up first.
Where you may take Zinc, Vitamin D, C or a B complex for the body, crystalline energy helps to shore up the energy bodies so should also be part of the total health approach.
Bloodstone or Amethyst can help to balance and strengthen the immune system which is usually the first system that comes under attack.
Aquamarine not only can aid in those who have an autoimmune disease, but can strengthen the overall immune system to help fight off any intruders.
Other immune system strengtheners include: Blue Calcite, Emerald, Epidote, Lapis Lazuli, Moss Agate, Pyrite, Malachite, Nephrite Jade and blue, pink or green tourmaline.
Wearing a bracelet or pendant can fill your energy field with immune strengthening energy. Add a moss agate tumble to your water with a quartz crystal the charge the water. The other suggestions are NOT to be placed directed into water as they may be toxic (you can download my entire Crystal Cautions List here FREE), however, there are water bottles out there now that have a compartment designed for these kinds of stones. They do not come in contact directly with the water, but can infuse with the energy instead like this one https://www.metaphysicalrealm1.com/crystal-water-bottle-plain-no-crystals-in-the-bottom-3.html
Fever can be a low grade, controllable event or can run dangerously high. It is the body’s way of fighting off an intruder who you did not invite!
Opal is a wonderful fever fighter (and it also helps to combat bacterial and viral infections). A non fire opal is best here, as a fire opal (which contains areas of water) could explode. Do not laugh…I totally destroyed an opal pendant I used to wear because of this.
Sodalite or Andalusite are also crystal “two fer’s” as they not only help to cool a fever, but strengthen the immune system.
BODY ACHES and/or HEADACHES
Sunstone is a wonderful piece to use to ease body aches. Amber or Charoite can help to ease body aches as well as a secondary symptom of headaches/migraines.
Blue Lace Agate can aid in cooling a fever, but it is also a wonderful piece to have when needing to ease an aching body/headaches.
Many of these can also do some double duty. For instance, Iolite can help to cool a fever AND ease headaches/migraines. Lapis Lazuli can strengthen the immune system AND help to soften a headache.
Other suggestions for body aches/headaches include: Shungite, Amber, Bustamite, Pietersite or Hematite.
Apophylllite can help to move through fatigue associated with illness. It also helps the body to get much needed, recuperative rest which is essential for the healing process.
Iolite not only helps to combat fatigue, but also strengthens the respiratory system.
Pyrite and Tiger Iron are two other minerals that can do the same—both help to deal with fatigue and also strengthen the respiratory system.
Imperial Topaz can aid in soothing a cough. Aquamarine or Amber will do the same.
Green or Blue Aventurine can help with drainage and runny noses. Larimar or Covellite can also help with that dripping nose.
Blue Fluorite can help with drainage issues while Indigo Gabbro (Mystic Merlinite) can not only aid with the drips, but can also strengthen the lungs and clear infection.
SHORTNESS OF BREATH
Amber can help to open up and strengthen the lungs. Bloodstone can help to ease congestion of the lungs.
Dolomite can help to oxygenate the lungs while Serpentine, Rhodochrosite or Chrysocolla can help to address respiratory issues.
I feel that you should choose the crystals that resonate with you personally. To those that you choose, I would add an Amethyst, a clear Quartz and a Smoky Quartz to help enhance the total energies for the highest good.
Will any of these crystals eradicate the cold, flue or COVID? No. Not by itself. And as we know, energy healing is a much slower process than taking a pill. It takes commitment and patience and yes, sometimes faith. Do not let that deter you however. Everything you do to make the body healthy is a step in the right direction.
Let me end with a little crystal common sense. These are airborne illnesses. Wash your hands often. Sanitize surfaces often. Wear your mask, especially if you have an at risk condition already. If you do show any signs or symptoms, please don’t be hard headed, get help, right away.
For my last thought, I would like to share this.
Along with these measures, I feel we should go beyond ourselves. Send love and support to anyone who is facing this, be it personally or through family members or friends. Check on them, see if there is anything you can do to help, go get some take out or have a grocery service delivery some groceries. When someone is sick, it is a chance to show loving kindness on a grand, universal scale and perhaps that is the balance after all.
