Crystals hold the profound potential to improve our lives when properly utilized. They can lend powerful energizing influences, clear your head, help you with healing as well as assist in protecting you. Placing certain crystals where you sleep can help improve your dreams, make you feel more enlightened, and even dispel negative spirits and energy. That’s why I’ve cooked up some tips on placing crystals under your bed or pillow for your total well-being.
My Experience With Using and Placing Crystals Under the Bed
My last husband (rest his soul) suffered from horrible sleep. He ran the whole gamut of challenges. Physical pain, nightmares, night sweats, plaguing thoughts – the poor guy didn’t have a chance. He was like that for years.
When I first met him, he claimed he was an insomniac. When I got him to open up about his sleeping issues, I quickly realized it wasn’t really insomnia – he was just beleaguered with a ton of challenges that thwarted his sleep. I made him a medicine bag filled with powerful crystals I had charged (some of those same crystals are on this list). Wanna know what happened? He proclaimed he got the best night’s sleep ever! My trick? I placed my hand-picked crystals under his bed.
I didn’t tell him about it. Why? Because he thought crystals, tarot cards, astrology, and such was a bunch of hooey-horse-hockey. He didn’t want to know anything about that stuff because he believed it was all hokum. I reckoned what he didn’t know wasn’t’ going to hurt him. Plus, I crafted my medicine bag with high intentions, quality crystals, and powerful affirmations. In other words, I knew what I was doing, and I also had confidence that this process would benefit him.
Placing that medicine pouch under his bed in secret might be considered an act of trickery – but sometimes a non-believer can thwart their own healing if they suspect “woo woo” stuff has been employed. I don’t recommend sneaking in crystals beneath the beds of people who are unaware. You’ve got to know and love them as well as understand what you’re doing and the effects these crystals can have.

It helps to protect you from bad juju that may lead to nightmares. Howlite may also calm your mind and body so that you can fall asleep quicker and easier.
Personally, I use howlite when I’m overstimulated or excited about something in the future. For example, I was ridiculously excited about hearing a call-back from a publisher about a book deal. I was so manic over that phone call, I found it hard to fall asleep. Howlite came to my rescue. I put this crystal under my pillow, and sleep came quickly and seamlessly.

Rose Quartz For Self-Love and Healing Sleep
Rose quartz is often associated with love, which is totally accurate. Its powers are harnessed when wanting to find romantic connections and manifesting that special someone you wish to be with. But most people don’t realize rose quartz is a champion at obtaining peaceful sleep.
Because this crystal is associated with love and healing, it can be a great force to use for self-love. If you’re anything like me, you might recapitulate the events throughout the day. Sometimes when I do this, I scold myself – thinking “Oh! I should have done this. Or I could have handled this better!” These thoughts can plague me when I try to fall asleep. In truth, I’m doing the best I can – and so are you.
