Crystals to Beat the Winter BluesWell, it seems to be the time of year when most of us are in full-on hibernation mode. We hunker down and begin to wait for the first few days of spring. For many, this quiet time is accompanied by a lack of motivation or a nasty case of the winter blues.


This year, I decided to get proactive and work with my stones to help me through what is normally a challenging time of year for me. I’ve been feeling happy, organized, productive, and energized – not to mention super motivated and having fun with my many energy healing projects. So, I wanted to share with you my list of crystals to use for the winter season with the hope that they’ll help you as they’ve been helping me.

The most commonly known crystal for treating something like the winter blues is Citrine.

This was always my go-to crystal for relieving Seasonal Affective Disorder (S.A.D.), but through experimenting with different types of Citrine, I determined that Phantom Citrine is an amazing crystal ally for this purpose.

The Phantom Citrine crystals are especially good when you’re in times of transition in your life (like the beginning of a new year) or when you’re making plans to better yourself. These crystals can help you keep track of your personal growth – just like a phantom is the record of the growth of the crystal, these crystals can help you to keep a record of your self-growth. This makes them highly motivational tools because they can show you just how far you’ve come. When you’re feeling good about yourself and your accomplishments, it’s hard to let the winter blues stand in your way. However, citrine crystals with phantoms are kind of rare, but it is possible to find them. So, keep your eyes open; they’re really great stones to have in your toolkit.

If you can’t find a Phantom Citrine crystal to work with, then another great stone for a winter pick-me-up is Sulfur.

It enhances your life-force energy, fortifying you for the winter months and energizing your physical body (keeping you from feeling sluggish). To energize yourself with Sulfur, hold a piece over your three lower chakras (Root, Sacral, and Solar Plexus) for approximately 2-3 minutes on each (beginning with the Root and moving upward). Sulfur also helps to pull warmth into the body, keeping you happy and healthy during the cold weather. It’s also great for motivation, so I love using it to help me tackle projects. I’ve had the best results with this when using my Sulfur in a crystal grid.

Sunstone is the last crystal in my recommended list for beating the winter blues.

It brings the healing energy of the sun into your auric field, filling it with light and warmth. This stone is wonderful for treating the effects of S.A.D. and (for some people) it may even work better for this than Citrine. I recommend placing a palm-stone shape over the Solar Plexus Chakra for approximately 10-15 minutes. While the crystal is in place, visualize breathing in the orange or golden light of the Sunstone, filling your Solar Plexus Chakra and radiating throughout your physical body. I especially like using the Pink Schiller Sunstone from Plush Oregon, but any Sunstone will work well (with the right intention, of course!).

Hope this helps you get cozy with your crystals!

    Can you tell me some good crystals and stones that have attributes to uplift twin flames? We twins are mostly cut off from one another because our ascension is very soon. We feel that we can’t channel our divine love to each other thru telepathy. We are being blocked to protect ourselves and it is a time of personal growth too. We need to use this time to heal, purify, be blessed with downloads and hopefully upgrades from our star brother and sisters along with their protection from the last vestiges of the dark ones. We have expanded our awareness of God, His Christ Light and also loving ourselves unconditionally until we are filled up and then a river of our love washes over Gaia waking up people. I look forward to your reply with much excitement and love. Namaste

      I think that for anyone who is looking to heal (physically, mentally, emotionally, or spiritually) I would recommend using Clear Quartz crystals. For those looking to purify, Selenite is an excellent choice. To awaken our intuition in order to channel or receive messages, Azurite can be placed over the Third Eye Chakra. I hope this helps!
