The students and graduates of Southwest Institute of Healing Arts spend a lot of their time studying, preparing for presentations, teaching, and practicing self-development. Here are some stones and crystals that will be helpful to have on hand to create mental clarity, alleviate stress, and boost confidence.
Calcite is actually known for helping with studying and teaching! It helps with stress and can be calming. It can be found in numerous shapes, sizes, and colors all over the world.
Carnelian is another one that is PERFECT for all things-acedemia! It is known to help with speech, memory, and studying. This one might be good to have on hand for any oral presentations or coaching. It is also helpful with self-esteem. It is a mostly orange and red stone that can be found raw or tumbled.
Tigers Eye is a grounding stone. This stone is known to help with intuition, courage, and sharpening the mind. It also helps with fear and worry. Many people love this stone for its chatoyancy, the optical reflectance effect, which makes it mesmerizing.
Most of these can be found at our Healing Pages Bookstore on campus or in their online shop.
