Crystals for Freedom

Redefining Freedom. 

It’s hard to explain where and how I got the inspiration to create this company - FREEDOM ROCKS

I have always collected rocks and crystals from when I was young but it wasn't until recently that I became interested in learning more about their unique healing properties. It was around the time of the birth of my second child. The birth itself was beautiful and happened exactly how I envisioned it, a true blessing. I gave birth at home surrounded by so much love and support. Afterwards, however, I had a few complications which ultimately led to severe postpartum. It was like nothing I had ever felt before. I simply wasn’t myself. Not only was I not myself but felt like  my Self, with a capital S, had left the building, and what was left was an empty, just a shadow of my former Self. I remember crying on my living room floor saying “where has she gone” over and over again. I was so filled with fear and dread that “she” would never return. I was at my wits end and open to ANYTHING that could possibly help me. I tried acupuncture and therapy and that's when I turned to crystals. I started sleeping with crystals on my bed, right next to my pillow. I would fall asleep at night holding tourmaline. Since my main issue was insomnia and anxiety associated with insomnia, the night was not my friend and crystals helped me get through those dark nights of the soul. Eventually I got better MUCH better like everyone said I would and despite me not believing that I would it happened! I never go anywhere without my crystals, they travel with me wherever I go, hotel rooms, cabins and bed and breakfasts. 

Fast Forward to this past March, only one year later, and the Idea of Freedom Rocks hit me. Why not share with the world what has helped me SO MUCH! These crystals have essentially freed me from emotional turmoil and that’s where I got the idea for the name of the company, Freedom Rocks! Freedom is defined as the power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint or the state of not being imprisoned or enslaved. Whether it is the freedom to express yourself, freedom to embrace who you really are without fear, freedom from addiction, from emotional turmoil, from physical illness, from abuse, we are all on a journey toward being free of some burden and I guarantee there is a crystal for all these freedoms you seek. I often get asked what my favorite stones. Here are the crystals that helped me the most:


This shimmering Mica crystal contains lithium - the same mineral used in powerful psychiatric pharmaceuticals - and is one of the best calming and stabilizing crystals for whenever life gets overwhelming. A natural antidepressant, this is a stone to keep close when feeling overcome by stress, anxiety and depression From colicky babies, to overwhelmed teens, from sleep deprived new mothers to sensitive artistic souls. Everyone can benefit from Leopidite’s calming magic. Everyone has times they desperately need to be reminded that everything is okay, that everything will be okay - and that you are okay, perfect in fact, and you are doing your best. Let lepidolite support you while you navigate life's rough waters so  you can shine even more brightly and blissfully.


Known as one of the premier crystals for protection,  Black Tourmaline protects against cell phones, dangerous electromagnetic frequencies (EMF’s), radiation, ill wishes and negative energies of all kinds.  Whether you are an empath or feeling emotionally vulnerable, tourmaline puts an energetic boundary between you and others, so that you don’t pick up unwanted energies. When placed in the corners of the room, it seals in the room with a protective shield. Black Tourmaline is also one of the most powerful crystals for anxiety. When you feel yourself getting overwhelmed, or if you're having an anxiety attack, hold large pieces of Black Tourmaline in each hand to cleanse your body of any negative vibes.


Smokey Quartz is one of the most grounding and stabilizing stones. Working with the root chakra, smoky quartz will help you remain calm, focused and balanced in any situation. Smokey Quartz teaches you how to let go of things that no longer serve you so you can create positive change in your life and move forward.  Referred to as a “mood elevator stone” it provides protection against negative emotions by absorbing and dissolving it. It gives you the strength to overcome feelings of stress, fear, anger, jealousy, depression and anxiety. Smokey Quartz aids in the acceptance of the physical body and sexual nature enhancing virility and cleansing the base chakra so passion can flow freely.


Simply gazing upon the celestial color of Celestite stones inspires deep peace and happiness. It is the ideal crystal for insomnia and anxiety associated with sleep. I sleep with a huge geode by the side of my pillow and it really helped me overcome postpartum insomnia and anxiety. Place celestite near you or on a nightstand to bring tranquility and encourages a restful sleep.  Before you go to bed, hold it in your hands to get into a calm state. See all your worries go into the stone so that you can sleep soundly. Say to yourself, I am surrounded by love, light and my guardian angels

 If you don’t usually remember your dreams it can aid in dream recall. Holding a celestite crystal  in times of stress or grief helps to lift heavy moods, relieve sadness and diminish anxiety. When placed directly on your body, Celestite can relieve muscle tension on the area it is placed upon. The deep peace it holds assists in cooling fiery emotions, conflict resolution and maintaining a harmonious atmosphere in times of stress.
