I sleep with rocks under my pillow. It sounds crazy, trust me, I know. Even my husband teases me about it. As part of my crystal healing studies, though I have learned the stones that are meant to bring calming energy and peaceful dreams.
Having a few of these comforting crystals in a small medicine bag under your pillow or on your nightstand can help bring about peaceful slumber.
Taking time to wind down from the day with some calming music, a warm bath with lavender oil, or both, is also a great way to get in the mood for a good night’s sleep.
