How to Use?
Rub it when you experience feelings of worry or stress.
Worry Stones are infused with a great power to soothe nerves. People who use worry stones have reported that this discreet, natural tool eases creeping anxiety and negative feelings.
According to research, physical activity, including a slight touch or movement, interrupts the brain from entertaining negative thoughts. When experiencing anxiety, rub your worry stone between your thumb and forefinger. While it may not completely dissolve your issues, it is proved to reduce the intensity of your worry and help you focus on positive solutions.
Carry it with you.
Emotional self-regulation is a skill that can be developed. Once you have practiced closing negative thoughts and feelings, the worry stone may be a useful tool to help you develop this skill. Psychologists acknowledge this as initiating a “relaxation script”, meaning that once you see and handle the stone, you remember what it feels like to be calm.
If you are aware that you are going to be in a stressful situation, such as giving a presentation or being in a crowd, place your stone somewhere you can access it if required. The mere presence of the stone will help you relax without ever removing it from your pocket.
Meditate with your worry stone
Stones have been used as an aid to meditation and prayer for thousands of years. Rubbing the stone allows the mind to focus, whilst eliminating distractions. The worry stone is an exceptional tool which allows you to put your current problems into perspective.
The perfect gift
A worry stone accompanied by a kind note, makes a considerate gift for a family member or friend who is suffering stress. The gift of a worry stone assures the recipient that you acknowledge they are experiencing worry, and you send them best wishes of comfort. Every time they see the stone they are reminded of your love and kindness. However, ensure you only gift a worry stone once you have energetically cleansed it first.
Most worry stones are able to be washed with a gentle soap and water. (Exceptions are Halite, Selenite, and other water-soluble crystals). Energetic cleansing may be completed by a method of your choice. Place your worry stone in a bowl of salt or leave it outside so it is exposed to sunlight or moonlight until it feels exceptionally clean again.
