Using Crystals to Heal Trauma, Anxiety and Depression in the Black Community

Using Crystals to Heal Trauma, Anxiety and Depression in the Black Community


Written and Researched by Cynoria.L.Reed 

Did you know that racism and associated prejudices can have a direct impact on health and life expectancy? This has been researched, and evidenced, in numerous studies in the US, Canada and the UK. We do not need to look far to see how the way people of color are treated and regarded in most societies will lead to Trauma, with a capital T. This, in turn, impacts on the nervous system, the immune system and physical, emotional, and mental health. 


Which Crystals Can Help? 


When it comes to alleviating stress and anxiety one of the most useful crystals to have around is Amethyst. This form of Quartz is extremely protective, cleansing and rejuvenating. It also cleanses the atmosphere and environment of negative vibrations and protects against psychic attack, transmuting the energy into love. 

Amethyst balances emotions and stabilizes the mood. It dispels anger, fear and rage and promotes mental tranquility. Placing an Amethyst in the room helps to remove disharmony and encourages honest communication. Wearing amethyst gemstone jewelry will help to boost your immune system and tune the endocrine system. It relieves both physical and mental pain, leading to a more robust mind and body, better able to deal with difficulties and challenges. 


Rose Quartz 

Rose quartz is the s tone of unconditional, universal love. It has a soothing, comforting vibration that attracts all forms of love to you and helps you find compassion and understanding in your own heart. It is a crystal of infinite peace and brings deep, inner healing. It teaches us how to love and care for ourselves as well as others, and emanates a calming, soothing vibration in a crisis. 

Rose Quartz should be placed in your home when you want to attract love. It is the finest emotional healer and can be carried with you in your purse or wallet or worn as jewelry when you feel the need for comfort and reassurance. It releases unexpressed emotions and repressed anger. It also helps to transmute old conditioning that no longer serves as well as providing strength and courage to move past traumas that may have occurred in childhood. 



Citrine is a wonderful crystal to use in the healing of depression and anxiety. It resonates with your Solar Plexus chakra in the center of your body, which is where we hold fear, but also bliss. As these two emotions cannot exist side by side, Citrine helps to clear and cleanse this chakra, dispels feelings of unworthiness and boosts self-esteem. 

Citrine holds the power of the Sun within its structure and aids in restoring optimisms and positivity to anyone suffering with depression. It is also a grounding s tone, helping you to feel anchored to the stability of the earth and to stand in your own power without fear or doubts. 



Fluorite comes in many colors and is a powerful crystal for encouraging discipline and organization. It is a highly protective s tone, especially on a psychological level and can help you to discern when outside influences are at work within yourself. Fluorite is associated with progress and growth on many levels and can aid in incorporating structure into your daily life. 

Fluorite overcomes chaos and increases self-confidence and feelings of self-worth. Emotionally, Fluorite has a stabilizing effect. It teaches you how to recognize and understand the effects of the mind and emotions on the physical body. 


Clear Quartz 

Known as the Master Healer, Clear Quartz is the best stone to begin your crystal collection. It is the most prolific crystal on the planet and can be found in many different shapes and sizes, including clusters and wands or “points.” This stone amplifies energy and protects your etheric body, or aura, from the negative vibrations and influences that may be around you, whether you are aware of them or not. 

Clear Quartz absorbs negative energies and disperses them. It works at a vibrational level, attuning itself to the person in need of healing and delivering the energies most appropriate for healing on all levels. It integrates mind, body and spirit and raises the energy to the highest possible level. 


How To Care For Your Crystals 


Most crystals need cleansing of the negative energies they absorb as they do their work, although both Clear Quartz and Citrine are exceptions to this rule. Clear Quartz can be used to cleanse and clear your other crystals simply by placing them in close proximity. 

When you want to program your crystals for specific purposes set a side ten minutes to relax and tune in the energies and vibrations of the stone. Hold the crystal in your hand set a positive intention by using only positive language and framing your thoughts in the present tense. An example of this may be something like “I am

strong, confident and protected at all times.” Send these thoughts into your crystal during quiet meditation and carry your stone with you during the day. 

How you store your crystals is down to your personal preferences. Very delicate stones, such as emerald or Selenite are best stored in soft cloth out of direct sunlight. Some people like to display their crystals in pyramid shelving or other storage devices, or simply to have them on their windowsills or other surfaces. In this case, you should ensure that they are regularly cleaned of surface debris. The easiest way to do this is to hold them under clear, running water for a minute and then allow them to dry naturally.
