I am often asked which stones are best for helping with weight loss. My personal choice, and the stones that I find myself recommending over and over again to my clients, are Carnelian, Amethyst and Apatite. I have personally worked with these crystals with great results (I lost 20 pounds in just three months).
The Apatite crystals (I recommend either Blue or Green Apatite) works to suppress or control the appetite. Apatite is also great for helping you to find and maintain your ideal body weight (or your most healthy body weight).
Since Amethyst works well to help people to break bad habits or to overcome addictions, it can be useful for people who have issues with portion control or overeating (for emotional or mental reasons).
Carnelian can increase feelings of hunger, but this is because it works to enhance the metabolism. I would recommend starting out with the Apatite and Amethyst and adding the Carnelian into the mix only after you have started to lose some weight (ideally when you’ve lost about 10% of your total goal).
Using a combination of the Apatite with the Amethyst and Carnelian helps to manage weight loss on the physical, emotional, and mental levels (instead of just the physical like as with most traditional weight loss techniques). The stones help not only energetically, but also that they are a good reminder for portion control, eating slowly and deliberately, and being conscious of the nourishment that you are taking into your body. Although shifting the pattern in your energy field can go a long way toward helping you achieve your healthiest weight, making healthy lifestyle choices is equally as important. The crystals are useful, but it is still up to you to nourish your body with a good diet, to exercise regularly, and to speak with your physician about your weight loss goals.
To get the best results with these crystals, there are several ways that I recommend you use them:
1. Carry the stones in your pockets (or set in jewelry) during the day and place them on your bedside table at night (so that you can continue to absorb the healing energy while you are asleep).
2. Before eating your meals, hold your stones for a few moments and intend that your body will receive all of the nutrition that it most needs at this time (and that it clears anything that is not needed).
3. Place the stones on the table near your plate of food so that the crystals can charge your meal with their energy as you eat.
4. After you have finished eating, hold the stones over your belly (or over the area that you would most like to lose weight) and visualize yourself as your ideal. healthy weight.
