It’s common to have trouble falling and staying asleep.
A racing mind, worry, tension, grief, and emotional upset can lead to broken sleep. Frequent awakenings can also leave you with fragments of troubled dreams or nightmares.
Crystals can help you get a good night of deep, unbroken sleep. They are a great addition to your toolbox of solutions for sleep trouble. During sleep, your brain experiences cyclical states of consciousness. Each cycle lasts about 90 minutes. It’s ideal to go through at least five or six cycles each night. Sleep is when your body restores and renews itself, and dreams are a chance to process emotions.
In What Stage of Sleep Do You Dream?
When you begin your journey into sleep, you’ll drift through dreamy states called the Alpha and Theta stages. This is a light state of consciousness where you’re easily awakened. Then your heart rate begins to slow, body temperature drops, and you slip into deeper and slower Delta brain waves. This is the stage when the body restores itself.
After a time of deep Delta sleep, you enter REM (rapid eye movement) sleep. This is the stage where you experience the majority of dreams. Your brain is alert even though you’re in a deep state of sleep. It is ideal to have five or six REM cycles a night. REM sleep and dreams are crucial for brain health.
The sleep cycle then repeats.
Why Are Dreams Important?
The lack of a dream-life is associated with mood disorders and depression. Troubled and broken sleep disturbs your dreams, you wake tired with no memory of your dreams. Dreams help you cope with daily stress, process your day, and work through difficult emotions, as well as enhancing spiritual awareness. You can also experience communion with divine beings, receive spiritual guidance, connect with loved ones who have passed, or remember past lives.
Dreams also process events of the day, situations, and problems you’re experiencing. Many people connect with loved ones who have passed, past life memories, messages from your spirit guides, angels, or however you experience spirituality, such as God, The Universe, etc.
Regardless of your beliefs, experiencing the stage of sleep where you dream is important.

What Do Crystals Do, And How Do They Work?
Modern life can be stressful, unstable and chaotic. We’re energetic beings and are affected greatly by the things around us. Daily stress and reactions to mental or emotional triggers upset the balance. We can be all over the place on a molecular level which often has an effect on our nighttime life.
Each crystal has its own frequency, crystal vibration is synchronized on a molecular level. Their stable vibration emits a powerful harmony.
