The sleep state is one of the most fascinating aspects of the human mind, especially during the REM cycle when most dreaming occurs. Dreams have been a wonder to mankind since the beginning of time, with many believing that it is during this state of unconsciousness (or consciousness, depending how you look at it) that we are more susceptible to outside psychic influence, particularly to receiving messages from the divine. Those messages can be decoded and interpreted into a wide variety of meanings, depending on the details of the dream in reference to dream journals, of which there is an even wider variety. It all comes down to intuition, essentially, and how the dream actually makes you feel – the vibe you get from it. Dreaming of crystals hardly seems like a daunting experience since it’s difficult to imagine an unpleasant scenario where crystals are involved. You’d be right to assume that it’s a positive message. Here’s what it means when you dream of crystals.
Before you attempt to decipher your dream of crystals, it’s important to take note of how you interpret it personally so that you’re not influenced by the opinions of others – just yet! You can ask yourself questions like ‘what color was the stone?’ Is it a stone you know the name of? Did it have a particular shape or distinguishable marks? Was it translucent, opaque, or transparent? Is it a familiar stone? Did you touch it? How did you feel? All these questions will play an important role in what the dream is trying to tell you. Usually when you’re dreaming of crystals, it could be that the spirit of the stone is calling out to you. Perhaps you’re needing to address certain issues in a particular aspect of your life, or maybe it’s a message that something great is coming your way. Of course, this all depends on the type of crystal in your dreams. Let’s take a look at some examples of crystals and what they mean when they show up in your dream.
Firstly, it’s important to note that the particular color of a crystal usually relates to a specific chakra or energy center of the body, which can be a message all on its own. If you dream of a red crystal for example, it can mean that you’re being called to heal the root chakra and its corresponding aspects of the body and mind. Take a look at this quick reference to narrow down your search from the crystal dream meaning.
The Crown Chakra is depicted as violet, and is located atop the head. It is the energy center responsible for knowledge, fulfillment, spirituality, and self-realization.
The Third Eye Chakra is indigo and is located on the forehead, just between your eyebrows. It is the energy center responsible for intuition, visualization, imagination, and clairvoyance.
The Throat Chakra is depicted as blue and is located at the back of the neck. It is the energy center responsible for communication, self-expression, honesty, and purification.
The Heart Chakra is green and is located in the middle of the chest. It is responsible for love, compassion, acceptance, forgiveness, kindness, and peace.
The Solar Plexus Chakra is depicted as yellow and is located right above the navel. It is the energy center responsible for strength, ego, willpower, self-esteem, and digestion.
The Sacral Chakra is orange and is located right at the navel, or the sacrum. It is responsible for sensuality, sexuality, creativity, pleasure, and the emotions.
The Root Chakra is red and is located at the perineum or at the genital area. It is responsible for survival, grounding, stability, comfort, and safety.
After you’ve referenced your crystal to its corresponding chakra, it’s time to identify your crystal. You can do this by doing some light research on the general appearance of your crystal, such as color, shape, and opacity or lack thereof. Here are a few examples of crystals and what they mean when they appear in your dream.
Dreaming of polished crystals can indicate that your future is clear and that the decisions you have been making will benefit your path in life greatly. This dream usually signifies that you will receive abundance and an increase in your financial earnings.
Dreaming of old crystals normally indicates that you are being called to seek wisdom from older generations. It can be that you are stuck in trying to make a difficult decision, and dreaming of ancient or old crystals means that you should seek advice from those who are rich in experience.
Dreaming of opaque crystals is an indicator that you are not giving yourself enough credit where it matters most. Perhaps you are in a state of confusion caused by your own inhibitions and it’s difficult to see the path ahead clearly.
Dreaming of clear quartz crystal represents purity and the clarity you will achieve by dedicating yourself to your goals. Success and abundance are achievable. Seeing this crystal in your dreams signifies that the path ahead is clear.
Dreaming of colored crystals can signify a variety of things, depending on the context of the dream. If you dream of a variety of colored crystals, it can be representative of your surroundings, which you are being called to pay attention to. If you dream of a single colored crystal, the meaning will depend mainly on the color of the crystal. For example, a green crystal can signify abundance, that you are either attracting or are in dire need of. If you dream of a red crystal, it can indicate that you need healing in areas regarding love and passion.
To dream of a jasper is typically a happy omen. Red jasper, in particular, symbolizes strength and protection and can be an indicator of love and passion coming to you. It also symbolizes success and a realization of your own personal willpower.
Coincidentally enough, the properties of black obsidian are very protective and support self-exploration as well as divination. Dreaming of this particular crystal may predict a realization of something that you have long been searching for. It also represents attachment and intimacy.
Is the stone of universal love, and so it’s only fitting that dreaming of this crystal represents those same aspects of life. If it appears in your dream, most likely you are being called to assess your love life, how you relate to those around you, and the relationship you have with yourself. Dreaming of rose quartz is a clear indicator that you need healing in more intimate areas of your life, perhaps your self esteem and how you view yourself.
Because this crystal is so closely related to the upper chakras, when it appears in your dreams you are being called to pay attention to your spiritual journey and development. Perhaps you have been neglecting this area of your life, but dreaming of an amethyst crystal is a sign that you need to prioritize the spiritual aspects of your Self.
This particular yellow and happy crystal represents the intellect. It is a symbol of the spirit and sincerity. If a citrine crystal appears in your dream, it can indicate power, determination, and a necessity to complete certain life goals. Depending on the context of the dream, you are either attracting or dispelling these things.
Perhaps because jade is a lucky stone in many cultures, dreaming of it can indicate that luck and good fortune are on your side. Maybe you are embarking on a new financial journey or are working on a personal project. Whatever the case, dreaming of this stone is a sure sign that the divine favors you and your ambitions.
Essentially, dreaming of crystals is a sign of the Self, and depending on the crystal in your dream, can signify an area of the self that needs healing. Most of the time after one has dreamed of a crystal, they may feel drawn to the stone. If you don’t already have one, consider getting it so you can practice meditation with the crystal while working on whatever it is your dream is indicating. Depending on the type of crystal itself, you can keep it in certain areas of the home – reference a Feng Shui Bagua map.
