Crystals In Your Bra And Rocks In Your Pockets:

by Carole Fogarty

By Carole Fogarty,

The crystal Sugilite is very useful for anyone with autism or learning difficulties such as dyslexia. It aids in mental co-ordination. A note from me yesterday over at Twitter

Natural Wisdoms: A Regular Feature:

Nature in all her wisdom and simplicity has provided us with many gifts to support and sustain our life here on this planet. The healing, cleansing, protective, nurturing and balancing qualities of mother earths crystals, are no exception.


My love of crystals has been long and rewarding. I even completed a crystal therapy practitioner program which went for 6 weekends (yep 12 days) many years ago.

If you ever get a chance to join me in Bali on my Women Rejuvenation Retreat you’re in for a treat, with my crystal healing circle.

My main relationship however, with crystals, is to correct and balance the energies in my home and support the wellbeing of my children. I’ve even tucked crystals into my boys pockets on exam days to help them with nerves, concentration and focus. This, I must say, made them very popular with the girls.

Crystals Your Next Best Friend:
I can personally guarantee that once you start using crystals and experiencing their benefits first hand, crystals of all shapes, sizes and colours will become your next best friend.

You’ll have them in your bra or pockets, tucked into your hand bag and wallet, in your car, beside your bed, attached to your water bottle, under your pillow, as a bracelet, around your neck, at your front entrance or near your electrical equipment to ward off radiation.

Put Crystals In Your Bra On Low Energy Days:
If your boundaries are not strong then other peoples thoughts, words and emotions can effect your wellbeing and energy levels. You’ll probably feel as if you are being pushed around by life. A perfect example of this is on low energy days, when your boundaries are definitely more vulnerable and exposed to absorbing negativity or leaking vital energy.

A crystal or two in your bra or pocket on low energy days is an easy way to strengthen and protect your boundaries from the soup bowl of influences out there in the world.

Crystals I Personally Love and Use:

Strengthening your personal boundaries – Amethyst:
If you believe your personal boundaries are loose or damaged then they can be strengthened with amethyst. Amethyst will heal openings and strengthen your personal boundaries to the world.

Protect yourself from other people’s stress – Smoky quartz:
Smoky quartz in your bra or pocket is perfect if you feel you are constantly exposed to other people’s stress and frustration. A piece of smoky quartz can even be placed by the phone if that is how you are exposed to stress.

Energy vampires – Labradorite:
Instead of sucking blood there are friends, acquaintances, family, children and people who simply drain us of energy. The crystal labradorite prevents energy vampires stealing your energy and at the same time will seal your boundaries.

Deflect negative vibes – Black tourmaline:
Black tourmaline cleanses negative energy and creates a protective shield around you. Very useful indeed. Labradorite and black tourmaline combined are a wonderful working team for protecting you.

Protect yourself from gossip – Black tourmaline and fire agate:
Stop toxic comments about yourself effecting your body, mind and soul by carrying either a piece of black tourmaline or fire agate.

Keen To Find A Great Crystal Book:
I can happily recommend The Crystal Bible: A Guide to Crystals by Judy Hall. I own her books and find her knowledge totally aligned to that of my original crystal teacher’s principles. Her books are simple, easy to understand and have lots of pictures which, believe me, makes it easier to learn about your crystals.

Thanks for reading this post, Carole.

Thank you for this post! I’ve been having a horrible time with bad energy at my job and feeling like I can do something about that is so empowering! I just ordered some Black tourmaline and Labradorite and I can’t wait til they come in.

Hi Carole

I always make a point of visiting everyone who takes a look at my blog and was really pleased I came here when I saw your comment about crystals and autism.

One of my sons has a form of Autism, it’s been suggested Aspergers although I think thee are only a few traits and something called Pathalogical Demand Avoidance – which is much more accurate.

I wondered whether you had any knowledge of this and whether Sugilite would be of any help or indeed any other crystal.

Any thoughts much appreciated.

This is a great post. A few years back when I was trying to conceive our first baby (which turned out to be babies) I read a lot about crystals and turned the ideas around in my head a bit but was pregnant before I got to use any of them…. now days I have a bit of that ‘lost’ feeling and I wonder if this is something I could pursue again.
Do you have a good online resource for purchasing crystals?

Let me know how you go with the black tourmaline and labrodrite, I have other ideas which may help protect you from yucky energies at work.

Peace, love and chai tea

Hi Mark,

Many of my students over the years, even my original crystal teacher who have children with variations of aspergers believe that the sugilite has a calming and balancing effect on their being. They keep a piece under their child’s pillow and perhaps put one in their pocket.

The effects are subtle but every little bit helps. The calmer the energy in the home environment the better.

Hope this helps.

Hi Kate,

I personally just buy my crystals locally. I haven’t bought any on-line at all.

You may wish to contact May who commented first and see if she is happy with the on-line crystal order she placed.

Peace, love and travel

Thank you Carole. I’ll give that a try and let you know how it goes.
