Chains and Charms: 9 Calming Crystals for sleep that help your insomnia and anxiety

***Author by Zoe Porter from TrulyExperiences*** 
I’m one of those lucky people that fall asleep as soon as their head hits the pillow. But I wasn’t always like that. I’d spend ages tossing and turning and thinking about the day, and once I finally drifted off, the smallest thing would wake me up. I tried a lot of things to get a good night’s sleep. Meditation didn’t seem to work, counting sheep drove me crazy, and breathing exercises made me want to laugh.

Then I discovered crystals.                          

A good friend of mine is a high-flying businessman who’s always on the go. But he looks fresh and wide awake, even when he’s jumped on the red-eye and had several meetings by 9 am. I asked him how he did it, and he let me in on his secret.

He uses crystals for everything, from money manifestations to relationships and getting a restful night's sleep. Now I do too.

I’m going to share with you how you can use calming crystals to enjoy restful, revitalizing sleep.
