If you have a squirrel brain like I do, then you’ll understand how difficult it is to stay focused on one thing at a time. It can be so frustrating especially when you’re trying to get work done or read a good book. Personally, I usually read an entire page before realizing that I have no idea what I just – oh look a squirrel! See what I mean? Okay, before something else distracts me, here are some of the best crystals for focus. 

Obsidian is a popular “psychic vacuum” that assists in clearing out all forms of negativity and chaotic energy from your auric field as well as from your environment. Its metaphysical and physical properties promote grounding and stability, while enhancing creative energies so you can easily assimilate new ideas and get the job done effectively. Obsidian keeps us tethered in the here and now for better focusing on the task at hand. Keep one on your desk or in your pocket to help sidestep distractions. 

Fluorite is best known for its ability to clear the mind and instill focus. It provides clarity and enhances mental productivity, sifting through the chaos in your head to help you make decisions in a more effective and timely manner. Fluorite lends feelings of confidence and positivity while balancing the mental state between unnecessary thoughts and great ideas. Having a piece of fluorite crystal in your workspace or hobby room will ease the flow of creative juices while keeping you focused and without distractions. 

Malachite is an excellent aid for neutralizing negativity and balancing the emotional body so you can let go of the energetic burdens of others and stay focused on your own issues. Malachite imparts strength, confidence, and willpower to help you get past emotional trauma and mental issues, reducing stress and anxiety. This powerful healing stone with bands of green opens the heart and brings balance to your chakras, putting chaotic thoughts and feelings in their place. Wear malachite in a piece of jewelry to carry its energies with you. 

Amazonite soothes and clears the mind of energetic clutter to help you focus on what matters the most to you in the moment, whether that’s work, self-care, or simply chilling out. If you’re naturally anxious and jittery, seemingly unable to sit still and give your attention to one thing at a time, this crystal for focus will calm you down and instill positivity so you can keep moving forward at a pace that’s steady and comfortable to you. Amazonite makes a great addition to any crystal collection. 

Sodalite is a stone of mental enhancement, insight, and intuition. When you’re able to properly assess a situation with a calm and clear mind, the results are often very successful and without all the stress. Sodalite instills self-discipline to assist in those times when you just can’t seem to sit still and get the job done. This stone of introspection allows you to look at yourself from different perspectives, identifying your strengths and weaknesses so you can make adjustments where necessary. Keep sodalite in your home, workspace, or both.  

Clear Quartz is the master healer and works very much according to its name. It draws out negativity from the environment while purifying your auric field and mental state to remove any blockages or inhibitions. This powerful energy cleanser gets rid of distractions, stress, worry, and self-doubt so you can do what you need to do, when you need to do it. Of all the crystals for focus, this one is the perfect choice. 

Utilizing these crystals for focus doesn’t have to be some spectacular display, but if that’s the level of extra you are, then by all means go for it. For the simple practitioner, it’s suggested to keep these crystals in a space where you usually work, on your desk or next to the computer – preferably somewhere it won’t cause any further distractions. Or you can keep it in plain sight and train your squirrel brain to avert the eyes. Whatever works for you, there’s no wrong way to use crystals, except probably one.
