Have Good Dreams with Crystals

When you slip into the mystical realm of dreams, it is always an adventure. Sometimes dreams are lucid and powerful, and you receive clear, prophetic guidance from them. Sometimes they are night terrors that make you sit bolt upright in bed with a scream, trembling, and covered in sweat. Other times, dreams are a senseless, jumbled mess while your brain is helping you work through confusing situations in your waking life, many of which you won’t remember.

You might be wondering if crystals can make your dreams better. They certainly can. So which crystals are good for bad dreams? Some crystals listed here may seem familiar. They pop up again and again because they are wonderful workhorses, useful for so many healing purposes. Like diamonds, they have many beautiful facets.

Certain crystals can be effectively used for deep dream work, psychic protection to ward off negative dreams, prevent nightmares, and help you reach peaceful and serene depths of gentle slumber. There are many types of crystals to help you have healing sleep and the kinds of dreams you most want, but these are among the choicest gemstones to help protect you from night terrors and replace them with sweet dreams.

Here are the five best crystals for better dreams.


Violet and purple crystals are known as dream crystals. They have especially strong healing powers when it comes to bringing sweet sleep, good dreams, and soothing nightmares. The deeper, darker shades of violet/purple, the better. Amethyst goes by many titles, such as the “Stone of Contentment, Meditation, and Spirituality,” the “All-Healer,” and “Nature’s Tranquilizer,” and is a gemstone of the Violet Ray.

This radiantly beautiful crystal is regarded as a royal stone and has profoundly powerful properties to help calm you and improve your dream state. Amethyst geodes are considered particularly potent. It’s often used to create greater balance in the Third Eye, or Brow Chakra. It is also aligned with the Crown Chakra, as it helps you open to Divine insight and strengthens your intuition. It helps protect you from psychic attack, as well as relax your muscles and ease any stress or anxiety you may be feeling. It draws you into gentle slumber and opens the way for you to become deeply attuned to lucid dreams. If you can only choose one dream crystal for now, amethyst is most excellent.


Called the “Stone of Inspiration,” this opaque, white crystal is laced with fine lines of gray or black and is known to help you have sweet and peaceful dreams. Howlite is aligned with the Crown Chakra, the major portal of connection to the Divine. If insomnia plagues you, this gemstone will certainly help alleviate it, for it reduces stress, anxiety, and worry. It helps you live in compassion as it transmutes negative thoughts into positive and calms your racing mind. It is believed to help you recall past lives as well as assist you in visiting higher realms in your dream state.

According to Carol Lucas of, Howlite is also known as the “Snow Leopard Stone,” for its resemblance to the fur of this beautiful big cat native to parts of Asia, including the Himalayas. Lucas states that this crystal assists “…your inner snow leopard [to] complete the hunts it needs to, not of prey, but negative habits, thought patterns, and energies.”


This gemstone comes in various colors, most often a soft white. Rainbow moonstone is one lovely type of this calming crystal. Known as the “Stone of New Beginnings,” it is also called the “Destiny Maker,” for its abilities to help you create a fresh start in all things and align you with your soul’s spiritual purpose.

Called the “Lunar Crystal,” moonstone is aligned with the Crown Chakra and connects you with the powerful magic of the moon as it gently awakens the Divine feminine energy within both men and women. Known to open an inner channel for prophecy and Divine wisdom, it protects you in all forms of travel, including astral travel when you dream. Acting to release emotional stress and tension, it is also a psychic protector. It gives serene energy that encourages deep, refreshing sleep. It will offer you safe passage in your dream journeys and help you bring back positive information to assist you in your waking life.

Black Tourmaline

Called the “Stone for Psychic Protection,” black tourmaline, with its ebony gleam, is revered as a shamanic stone of protection, shielding you from negative energies, including psychic attack. It is thought to keep you safe in dream state from negative entities and destructive forces. This grounding stone is associated with the Root or Base Chakra and connects you with the heart of Mother Earth.

It helps purify and transform negative thoughts, and releases stress, pain, and anxiety so you can sleep and have good dreams.

Lapis Lazuli

Lapis Lazuli, known as the “Stone of Lucid Dreams,” and “the Wisdom Keeper,” it opens your Third Eye Chakra and activates psychic dreaming. Its calming, deep blue color marbled with gold flecks shields you from negative energy as it provides a bridge to connect you with the physical and celestial kingdoms.

Another crystal that blocks psychic attacks, it repels negative energy and sends it howling back to where it came from. It gives you peace and helps you commune with your spiritual guardians.
