At HeartCentric, we are big fans of our pets. Lana has two Siberian Huskies and Karina has a mini Goldendoodle. Just like people, our pets absorb energy and can gain great benefits from healing crystals and gemstones. We love crafting pet pendulum crystal accessories for our pets as much as making pendulums! Not only do they enhance your pet’s cuteness factor, but they also dispense the crystal’s healing properties while your pet is wearing them. In this blog, we’d like to share a little about our favorite crystals for pets and when to use them.
If you’re a pet owner, you’ve probably noticed that your pet experiences emotions that can be expressed in positive and negative ways. When our furry pals undergo difficult emotions and experiences, crystal healing therapy can be an alternative that works without harming your pet by regulating their balance naturally. Like with people, pet energy healing addresses the electromagnetic field around them, including the emotional, mental, and physical bodies. Disruptions in the normal flow of energy eventually lead to physical illness and psychological symptoms. Healing crystals can help with a multitude of conditions including aggression, fear, anxiety, attachment, shyness, excessive barking, dealing with change, trauma, and digestive issues such as an upset stomach. Read on to learn which are some of our favorite go-to's.
Rose quartz is the crystal of unconditional love. Its calming properties ease frustration and nervous tension and bring comfort in stressful situations its properties radiate feelings of security and peace. If your furry friend is a rescue, rose quartz can help heal any past trauma and allow for a greater connection. If your pet is tense or shy when meeting new people, rose quartz will help your pet learn how to accept love and companionship. It also helps to dissipate fear, replacing it with feelings of confidence and love. As an added bonus, it can help decrease muscle tension and speed up healing from physical injuries. For pets who struggle with frustration and irritability, a Rose Quartz crystal is sure to help.
Amethyst is the ultimate healer as it remedies both physical and emotional pain that your pet may be suffering from. If your pet lacks energy, amethyst will give her a boost of energy needed to play and run happily. Amethyst crystals are a must if you have an older cat or dog. As a powerful multipurpose healer, this crystal can help with problems related to the heart, skin, stomach, and digestion. In addition, the healing vibrations of this crystal can help get rid of fleas in your pets. Amethyst acts as a natural tranquilizer and stress reliever. It can help your pet relax, reduce fear, ease grief, and deal with separation anxiety and panic attacks well. If your pet is reactive, try an amethyst to infuse a calming effect.
If you’re looking for a crystal to improve the overall health of your pet, Clear Quartz is a great choice. Clear quartz helps clear negative energies, creates a sense of calm, and increases your pet’s confidence when interacting with others. This healing crystal can also help reduce excessive barking or aggressiveness. Clear Quartz is an amplifier, meaning, it can help your pet with any intention. So if there is a specific area where your pet needs healing or an emotion that needs uplifting, set an intention with your Clear Quartz and watch it work its magic.
Moonstone brings nurturing, soothing energy to help with your dog's healing process after traumatic experiences. Considered a “stone for new beginnings,” it’s an excellent crystal for pets post-surgery, after moving into a new home, or if you’ve just brought a pet home from a shelter. If your pet is impulsive or reactive, its gentle, soothing energies can stabilize emotions and reduce nervous tension, bringing a relaxed vibe into your dog's environment. Moonstone aids the digestive system, so if your pet is having stomach issues, it can help eliminate toxins and fluid retention as well as degenerative conditions of the skin, fur, and eyes.
Known as the “stone of joy and happiness,” Citrine energizes all aspects of life. It raises self-esteem and self-confidence and stimulates the brain. If your pet struggles with shyness or is lethargic, try a citrine crystal to promote motivation and balance emotions. Pets who exhibit symptoms of depression, fear, and separation anxiety will benefit from its ability to assist in positive enthusiasm. Citrine also reverses degenerative disease and is beneficial in the treatment of kidney and bladder infections, as well as diabetes. It also helps with eye problems and balances the thyroid.
Cleansing and charging your pet’s crystals
Crystals worn by dogs should be cleared often if not daily. There are many ways to cleanse crystals and gemstones. A few methods that we recommend when you first bring your pet’s crystal home and again whenever needed include: smudging (i.e., burning dried sage leaves in a bowl or shell and passing the crystal through its fragrant smoke), leaving them out in the sunlight for a couple of hours, and leaving them in the moonlight, especially during a full moon. For more details, please read our blog on how to care for crystals.
Before using crystals on your pet, it’s important to first pay a visit to your holistic veterinarian to ask for their expert advice on what your pet may need. Next, it’s time to identify which crystals may be appropriate to support your pet’s specific healing needs. If you are knowledgeable in using crystals to heal yourself, the same crystals may be used to support your pet. Our favorite way to incorporate a crystal into our pets’ lives is to attach our HeartCentric Divine Creations Pet Pendulum healing crystals to our dog’s collar. As with our signature pendulum designs, we use lava stone so that it can be paired with essential oils or a pet-safe CBD spray to amp up the healing effects.
Whether it’s soothing your pet’s separation anxiety, calming her hyperactivity, easing joint pain, or enhancing your emotional bond, a pet pendulum crystal can help your pet's healing. It's effective, natural, easy, and convenient. Attaching a pet pendulum to your pet’s collar is a surefire way to naturally enhance your furry pal’s overall well-being and foster a special connection between you and your pet.
