Are there any crystals that can help me stay healthy during this terrible flu season?

“Dear Adrienne,

All I have been hearing about lately is how bad the flu is right now.  Several people at work have already come down with it, and I really don’t need that in my life!  I’ve been sanitizing my hands like crazy and taking good supplements, because I don’t fully trust flu shots.  I’m open to natural things, so I was wondering if there are any crystals that can keep me healthy during the flu season.”


With all of the frightening news stories out there about how bad the flu is this season, it makes you consider wearing a mask when you have to go out in public!  But remember that you are a powerful being, and ultimately your health is in your own hands.  I looked up what the underlying energetic cause is of the flu in Louise L. Hay’s ground-breaking book, You Can Heal Your Life, and I thought that the answer was pretty interesting:  “Response to mass negativity and beliefs. Fear. Belief in statistics.”  So perhaps the first suggestion is to tune out some of these fear-inducing messages in the media, and to embrace and exercise your power to create health in your body.  It sounds like  you are already taking great steps to ensure your health.  Keep up the hand sanitizing and keep taking supplements to boost your immune system. It is also a good idea to drink plenty of water, exercise regularly, and maintain a clean, alkalizing, healthy diet.  You can also work on a spiritual and energetic level to raise the vibration of your immune system.  Remember that things begin on an energetic level before they manifest on the physical body level.  You could work with releasing fears around your relationship with your body, repeating positive affirmations to support the optimal functioning of your body, and sending light to your immune system and entire body while visualizing that it is strong and healthy. There are several wonderful crystals that can support the immune system and reinforce health on the subtle levels.  (Please note that my crystal suggestions are not intended to take the place of medical advice, and that I suggest consulting a qualified doctor if you are experiencing an illness or medical condition.)

Green Calcite is a powerful ally during flu season, as it is known to naturally boost the immune system while combatting viral and bacterial infections.  Calcite is a top stone for clearing lower energies that you are exposed to, while also assisting you in clearing old and limiting beliefs from your mental body. It is perfect for helping you to release those negative belief patterns of the collective consciousness that you might have picked up. Green Calcite also helps you to release stress and tension that would weaken your immune system, and it removes stagnant energy anywhere in the physical body.  In addition to its cleansing properties, Calcite is also a natural amplifier of positive energies.  Green Calcite expands the general health and vitality of your body, and it brings patterns of physical and emotional well-being into your auric field.  

 Bloodstone is a top level healing stone that and detoxifies and fortifies many systems of the body.  According to Michael Katz, author of Gemstone Energy Medicine, “Bloodstone strengthens your immune system and keeps it alert and responsive to your body’s needs.  Bloodstone’s energy empowers certain microorganisms in your bloodstream that are vital to optimal immune function, making your body an incompatible environment for infections of all kinds.”  Another way that it supports the immune system is that it increases the flow of lymph.  A stone of well-being and vitality, it strengthens the root chakra and physical energies.  It has a solid protective quality that keeps out negative influences while instilling a sense of courage and empowerment.  

 Fluorite is another super-stone to help keep you immune.  It is a stone of perfect order and perfect health, as it purifies, releases, and re-patterns anything in the physical body that is out of alignment.  Fluorite is the one to grab when you feel you might be exposed to highly contagious infections, such as the flu, as it provides your body the strength and protection to avoid contracting the condition.  And if you do happen to come down with something, Fluorite has been known to knock out an illness at the first signs of it.  In addition to supporting the physical body and the immune system, Fluorite stabilizes and strengthens the other levels of your being: the auric field and spiritual bodies, the emotional body, and the mental body.  And the key to maintaining health is to have your entire being in balance.

I would suggest choosing one, two, or all three of these stones to carry with you or to wear as jewelry during flu season.  If you want to do a crystal healing layout, a good placement would be over the thymus, located a few inches above the heart chakra at the center of your chest.  With the stone (or stones) in place, visualize pure, green healing energy circulating throughout your body, uplifting and strengthening all systems.  Place your hand over the stone(s) at your thymus, and allow light frequencies to flow into this area while you hold the intention that you are raising the vibration of your immune system. You can then visualize a golden shield of light around your aura, forming a powerful barrier of protection.  Affirm that you are in perfect health, and see yourself moving effortlessly through your day as any lower energy of illness just bounces off of your shield.  Spend at least eleven minutes doing this, and try it at least once or twice a week.  This will help establish an energetic pattern of improved health and well-being.  May you breathe easy this flu season!
