When I was approached to write an article for New Earth Publications on crystals for teenagers, Spirit asked me to focus on areas where teens need healing tools to deal with certain personal health and harmony issues. Spirit and I selected the following 10 issues that are relevant. There are some suggestions on how to use the crystals as well as a listing of recommended crystals that can be used to alleviate symptoms. Of course, adults, children and even seniors may also benefit from these crystals. For more information, please read my article Three Steps to Crystal Healing (http://www.crystaltiger.com/sa02060_Three_Steps.html) and Why Crystal Healing Works (http://www.crystaltiger.com/sa02006.html).

1. Trouble Sleeping
Sleeplessness often comes because our minds are troubled by what has happened during the day. We lie awake still running the activities through like an endless movie. Sleep disturbances such as bad dreams and nightmares can make us afraid to sleep or will wake us up in the middle of the night with further difficulty falling asleep again.
Feeling weird or unbalanced is not uncommon but it can be unsettling and distracting. As intuition begins to develop at new and higher levels, there can be imbalances and even conflict between the psychic-intuitive function and emotions and feelings as you grow towards adulthood. The “Teen Brain” also makes many changes. Teens on the path of intuitive development will often need the recommended crystals to centre themselves and to help ground their energies so they can be used more effectively in day-to-day living. Wear the crystal by itself at the Heart Chakra as needed for best effect.
There are many reasons why people have fear. There are many different types of fears such as fear of being in a closed space (claustrophobia), stage fright, fear of failure, fear of rejection, fear of the unknown. None of these are easy to deal with.
Stomach and Indigestion
Aside from any medical issues, indigestion sometimes occurs because you are not eating well. You eat bad food. You have a sour stomach from eating too late or not regularly enough. You may have bad nerves that jangle your digestive system.
Headaches and head pain can be triggered through situational events such as an argument, hormonal imbalances, or sensory or energy overload. Whenever there is excess energy in the head and blocked energy pathways, the energy builds up and causes pressure, often felt physically. An easy solution is to open the pathway on top of the head using crystals to allow for the excess energy to leave. Hold the crystal about 2 inches over the centre of the head. Hold the crystal steady for a few minutes to open the Crown chakra and related energy pathways. Then slowly move the crystal up a few more inches and continue to hold it above the top of your head. Breath in and out to help the energy leave. This technique has been very successful for many people with headaches going away within a few minutes. It takes some training on this technique to be effective for migraine sufferers.
Sometimes sadness arrives with little control over when, where and how it will be expressed. We all have emotional upsets, losses and traumas that affect us emotionally. Grief is natural and is both a cleansing process and a healing process that provides direction for change.
8. Self-EsteemLow self-esteem is caused by thinking of yourself in a negative way such as being a failure or as having self-doubt in your own abilities. There are a number of crystals that help support a person and provide both nurturing and healing at many levels. Orange Carnelian is an especially powerful crystal that heals past psychological wounds and a wounded Heart. It is also very good for skin complaints such as acne, pimples and roseasia. This crystal and the others suggested are best when worn all the time at the Heart chakra over a long period of time (months) to help stabilize new positive healing energies and to provide nurturing to a depleted energy system. Others may notice you brighter outlook even before you do !
9. Memory and LogicWho wouldn’t want a crystal to provide improved mathematical abilities and to increase memory ? The recommended crystals help to provide precision, the ability to see relationships between things and to provide a coordinated response to problem solving. The recommended crystal aren’t usually worn on the body so the best way to use them is to hold them in your hand and gaze at them, sleep with them next to you or keep them on your desk when you study to enhance your recall of information. The crystals will help de-clutter and restructure your left brain where logic abilities reside.
Lastly, there are many specialized crystals that help support the development of psychic abilities and spiritual connections. These types of crystals tend to be transparent or highly reflective of light. They also have a greater ability to hold Light. Labradorite for instance is a dense opaque crystal but has a deep luminescence with all the colours of the rainbow!
