Protection of the Crystals
Crystals and stones have given their metaphysical energies to protect people for a eons. From amber which was used extensively for protection by the ancient Romans to golden amulets of the ancient Egyptians to modern good luck charms, many protection magic items have been made of crystals and stones of various kinds.Exactly what crystals to use for protection varies according to what you want to protect or want to protect against, one’s religious background and beliefs, and cultural background. What may be considered protective by one culture or religion may not be considered so by another. So how on earth (or elsewhere!) do you find your way around all this? Mainly, intuition or gut feeling, and experimentation.Crystals have been used for protection as far as history can remember. From the Mayans to the Chinese or the Egyptians. Many people believe that crystals can behave like your own personal body guards if you allow them to. Carrying the right crystal could make a big difference if you’re experiencing hard times in your life or you know that you will be facing great challenges in the near future. After all, you have everything to win and nothing to lose.Crystals and gemstones are like people, each one is unique and exudes a specific energy, a crystal or gemstone may be used for healing, magic, spell casting, to inspire, uplift, balance, calm and energize. Stone can enhance learning, alleviate stress, balance the energy fields in your home, activate your energy and promote lucid dreaming. Crystal energy can assist you in any area of your life and for any reason, each crystal or gem has a multitude of uses, and it will choose you, not the other way around. When purchasing a crystal or gemstone there will always be one that stands out from the rest, you will be attracted to the stone and be compelled to take it home with you. The crystal or gemstone that comes to you will be the one you need at that particular moment in your life.
Crystals have the ability to transmute negative energies and provide you with energetic protection. Their stabilized molecular structure has a dominant effect on your energy field and can transmute energy imbalances while offering strength to your existing auric layer.Gemstones for Protection are only one way to use crystal energy in your life.We all have the need for protection sometimes and accept that there is often some negative influence that has the capability to bring harm to your home, family, business, personal sense of security, happiness or quality of life.
We are using Crystals for:
protection from psychic attack,
or from disease as well as countless other possible reasons.
In our everyday modern life we are exposed on different type of radiation out or at our home.Crystal can help us decrees or neutralized the power of that radiation either of EMF or EMR. EMF stands for electromagnetic field and EMR stands for electromagnetic radiation. These harmful frequencies are almost inescapable in our tech laden society – from computers, WiFi signals, electrical lines, televisions, cell phones, microwaves and more.Studies have shown that harmful EMF and EMR can cause fatigue, increase aging and increase stress by raising our adrenaline and cortisol levels.The best EMF and EMR protection crystals are usually the ones with higher iron content and magnetizing power, which are also known as ferromagnetic. Try to avoid crystals with silica since those can boost and amplify harmful energies instead.One of the best for that purpose is Shungite from the Karelia region of Russia has been strategically used by Russian military intelligence for protection from illness and harmful radiation. They’ve even created healing rooms in Russia lined with shungite and placed people in there who were sick or exposed to harmful radiation with successful results. Shungite contains full erenes (spherical carbon molecular structure with empty inside space) that is scientifically known to have anti-oxidizing and healing benefits .Shungite provides an effective energetic shield and clears negative frequencies. I like working with both the regular darker shungite and the higher quality noble silver shungite. The best way to use it is to : Create a WiFi router grid with four shungite pieces, or grid the corners of your home with shungite chunks. Add shungite to your water filter for healing, to boost the immune system and help those with allergies. Add pieces of shungite in your shower filter to heal skin issues and provide anti-aging benefits of wrinkle reduction and tightening skin. Wear a shungite bracelet on your left wrist to block incoming negative EMR and EMF, and on the right wrist to absorb any energies you may already have in your system.
Movement in the Earth’s crust is the catalyst for the formation of a crystal, as super-heated liquids and gases, filled with different elements, move rapidly towards the surface. As the liquids and gases cool they crystallize, the temperature, pressure, surrounding rocks and other elements determine which minerals crystallize at a particular pace, crystals and rocks produced in this way are known as igneous. When crystals and rocks are exposed to the elements, they begin to erode and small particles are washed into the sea forming silt deposits. After extreme pressure for millions of years, these deposits become compressed, forming sedimentary crystals and rock.
The vibration of the planet has been lifting quite quickly over the last ten years, and the gifts of many people have now come to life.Many people are developing psychic clairvoyant ability, clairsentient gifts or discover they have some level of psychic skills, and have the potential to be aware of this negativity.Many of us have innate psychic gifts that we are born with, and it is common for these gifts or abilities to just begin, with no warning. The development of psychic abilities may happen to you somewhat unintentionally. If you have been using or wearing high energy crystals, they have the potential to magnify your psychic gifts, almost suddenly.Often this strengthening of your ability happens when you begin spiritual development, including participating in meditation groups. When you are working with others, you may find that you take unwanted negative energy into your own energy field, and it effects you badly.Crystals and gemstones have all kinds of metaphysical and beneficial properties. Crystals and gemstones have all kinds of metaphysical and beneficial properties.Every stone and their associated color has its own respective properties and health and healing benefits. Crystals heal us with their unique vibration frequencies (energies). When we hold a crystal or have a crystal touching our skin, our body absorbs this color vibration. This energy travels through our nervous system and goes to the area that needs healing. The vibration then re-balances and harmonizes our body’s energies.Black is a color that absorbs. That is the reason why black stones are good at protecting us from negativity and electro-magnetic fields. It absorbs the bad that our bodies would normally take in and then it either dissolves or releases it.
Your personal energy can get drained when you come in contact with many people in public places or at social gatherings. Wearing crystals during these moments as a bracelet or in a pendant can help provide you with protection.Psychic protection is when your energy is drained from one person, which is referred to as a psychic vampire. This person may not intentionally know they are draining your energy from their needy behavior. But on the other end, a psychic vampire type person can also intentionally drain and affect your energy by mentally projecting jealous, angry, spiteful or hateful thoughts your way. Either way can make you feel fatigued, cranky or even make you feel sick. It’s important to wear protective crystal jewelry because sometimes mentally keeping up a protective shield is not enough. A crystal will work for you when you’re too busy dealing with your everyday life.Psychic protection is important for anyone who is doing spiritual or psychic development work, including if you are participating in a meditation circle.Once you become adept at making contact with the higher realms, you will understand more fully the risks that you face, and will wish to prevent psychic attacks.But many people at the beginning may be unaware of the problems, so are not protecting themselves adequately.Once you open yourself up to spirit, you should begin to take psychic protection measures to protect yourself from psychic attack.
Crystals for physic protection are :
Aqua aura quartz
Tibetan black quartz
When it come to gemstones for protection of your home and property, select four small clear Quartz points of approximately equal size. you will also nee a fifth Quartz point but this one is to be larger than the other four.Cleanse the five Quartz points and then, dedicate and program them to release their protective energies.Place the four smaller points in the four corners of your property with their faceted points facing up. Place them in a spot where they will not be disturbed or removed by a gardener, child or animal.Take the fifth crystal point and place it approximately in the center of your property, with the faceted point facing upwards. If there is a building or house in the center area, you can place the crystal in a pot plant or a vase.This exercise you can do every morning while you are meditating or in your quiet time.For starters, sage the house. Follow your intuition on when to do this, however I highly recommend it when you are moving into a new place, after any negative interactions (like a fight), or if someone has come around that has left that “yuck” vibe behind. You will know when your house needs it. Open the windows and sage around each room so that any negative energies can leave through the window. I personally start at the door of the room and work my way clockwise. Do whatever works for you. You can use incense for the same purpose. Also there is a sage smudge spray if you cannot handle the smoke from sage or incense.Once the crystals have been put into place, sit approximately in the middle of your house so you are as close to being in the middle of your house grid as possible. Relax and focus your energy. Visualize the crystals being connected energetically. You can also visualize a white or golden protective, energetic shield around your house that is emanating from the crystals.Your home is one of the strongest and biggest holders of your energy. Typically, you spend most of your time there, and you definitely spend the most of your vulnerable recharging time there when you’re asleep in your room. That makes it a big target for an enemy, psychic vampire – or jealous pal – to send bad vibes your way.Whether a person is intentionally sending ill wishes your way or not, negative thoughts about you are sent energetically and directly to your home (the place where you reside the most) and can have a negative impact on your daily life.Aside from bad energy being sent your way (above), you can also drop off negativity in your home after you’ve been carrying it with you all day, stockpiling stagnant, unhappy chi/energy in your sacred space. Your boss’s incessant poking, a dispute with your mother, or bickering with your partner may stay in your energy field all day, but once you’re home, imagine it peeling off you and hanging out for a drink in the kitchen. But like, never leaving; like a house guest who doesn’t have any manners.While regular sagging and cleansing can help protect your space, setting up proper protection amulets is a great way to keep your home feeling cozy and safe for those times you can’t energetically cleanse it with herbs. And in case you run out of sage and notice something just doesn’t feel right, this little protection kit will keep you safe. Our energy fields are messy. We can “pick up” energy from other people or places that we interact with – like that grumpy boss – and we can hang onto it. This makes our personal energy messy (for a lack of a better word), and maybe a little unstable at times because there are so many competing feelings/energies inside us. But this is also one of the best things about being human!A crystal’s energetic makeup doesn’t get messy the way ours can, even though there are some crystals out there that do absorb energy. A crystal’s structure is very orderly. Imagine a bunch of intersecting parallel lines that are perfectly perpendicular: imagine that within a crystal. Now imagine a bunch of curving, twisting lines that intersect and run into one another, sometimes blocking other lines entirely: imagine that within us.Since humans pick up varying energy, when we spend enough time with a crystal, we begin to adopt its energy field, helping to smooth out ours the way the vibrato smooths out in a guitar when you tune it.Our personal space or dwelling can also pick up energy the way we do, but it is more so dumped there to hang out and float around aimlessly. Sometimes we can really feel the energy within a space when we walk into it. Maybe you’ve felt this sort of energy when you’ve walked into a creepy place and just felt like you had to leave. Crystals can help absorb negative and unhealthy energy, and by setting up protective barriers and amulets you can keep your space’s energy crisp and clean – and safe.
Visualize the Crystals emitting a white protective light.
Link the four corner crystals with this white light surrounding the property with a protective energy.
Now visualize this white light joining with the central crystal from the four corners in a pyramid shape.
Your property is now placed in a pyramid of protection.
You must take precaution not to move the five crystals because if you do you will break the very powerful protective energy that surrounds your home or property and will have to begin again.It is not necessary for you to cleanse the crystals again unless they are accidentally moved or touched.If you are doing the above visualization daily,you will weaken your own protection.You can do the visualization anywhere, on holiday, at work, overseas or at home, it only takes a few minutes of your time and it is very effective.If you do this diligently, your property will be protected against natural phenomena like wind and hailstorms as well as against unwelcome guests. The wind will still blow, the hail will still fall, but if there is any damage to your property, it will be minimal.Flats, rooms, factories and business premises can be protected in the same way.You can place crystals in pot plants or use them as ornaments, then placing them in the four corners, should the be a cupboard in one of the corners place the crystal in the cupboard. Do not forget the fifth crystal in the center. Once you’ve done this you can do the same visualization as above daily.Using crystals as a part of your life is both rewarding and fun, a skill easily leaned for a small investment of time that will pay itself off over and over again.

The number one place has to go to the Black Tourmaline. This black stone is the ultimate crystal for protection. This rock is a total bad ass when it comes to making sure his carrier stays safe. It will not only repel harm and negativity, but the best part about it it’s that it will send it right back to it’s source. In other words, if someone is wishing harm or misfortune upon you and you’re carrying this crystal the moment that its happening – All their negativity will come back right to them. This crystal is ideal when you know you will be going to a dangerous place, or when you know you will have a confrontation with someone. The Black tourmaline will protect you on all levels: Physical, spiritual and emotional.Hematite Crystal is the crystal for protection specially when it comes to legal issues. In other words, Hematite is a crystal for protection from divorce, legal challenges or any other kind of negativity. If you’re having any kind of legal problems – this is the crystal to have on you. So next time you have to walk inside a court room – pack one of these in your pockets.Tiger eye is very protective of its owner and the ideal stone to keep in your car for protection against theft or accidents. This semi precious stone is also a great good luck talisman against poverty. The Tiger eye is know for keeping poverty at bay and protect your finances while bring abundance into your life. Auralite 23 is one of the crystals that is believed to have appeared in our current time to help humanity raise to higher frequencies. It is also called “A New Stone of the New Consciousness” because of it’s high frequency and abundance of metaphysical properties. This gemstone can be found only in one place in the world – Thunder Bay, Canada. What makes this crystal so unique and different from the rest is that it’s a natural mixture of other crystals and minerals. This is why it is also known as Auralite 23, because it contains more than 23 different minerals. Some of the ones that have been identified are gold, silver, Amethysts, Citrine, Copper, Hematite, Magnetite, Pyrite, Platinum, Iron and much more. Auralite is estimated to be around 1.2 billion years old. It’s mysterious creation is often attributed to a comet that must to have landed in Thunder bay billions of years ago melting all the minerals together due to the immense heat. This crystal will not only provide you with the protection that you need but it will also become your mentor. It will act as a teacher to attract to your life the circumstances, people and situations that you need to help you grow and get attuned with your higher self. There are those who deliberately project ill-wishing towards another, usually out of anger, jealousy, envy, or ignorance. This is known as a psychic attack. When there are tears or holes in the aura, these and other negative energies can penetrate the aura and be passed onto you.Two good stones to protect against psychic attack are Black Tourmaline, which wards off negative energy, and Rose Quartz, which replaces negative feelings with positive ones. Also, just about any dark-colored or black stone will repel or dissolve negative energies. A few of these include: smoky quartz, hematite, jet, black onyx, black obsidian, and apache tear.
Crystals for different type of protection are:
Amethyst is a stone of protection and can be worn to prevent psychic attacks and to protect the wearer from all types of harm. Keeping an amethyst cluster in a room such as the living room, will clear out negative or blocked energies.
Amber is bright, cheerful and protective. It is a tree resin rather than a stone, however it is worn in jewelry like any other stone or crystal and has been worn for thousands of years to bring luck and protection to the wearer. This is my personal favorite to wear to ward off negative energy or attacks from others, as it works wonders.
Brown Calcite is protective whilst attracting positive energy into the environment and mind of the wearer.
Charoite transmutes negativity back into positive energy and can keep the aura and chakras clear of negative energy.
Diamond is a stone of purity that cleanses negativity, yours and others, from the aura. Diamond is a girl’s best friend for a reason.
Emerald dispels negativity whilst also promoting harmony and love.
Fire Agate offers a strong shield of protection and is excellent for dispelling fear, a stone that transmutes energy. All types of agate are useful for protection.
Hematite is very protective and can help to draw negativity from the base chakra and transmute it, whilst preventing the wearer from absorbing the negativity projected from others. This stone is aligned with the base chakra and is also grounding.
Yellow Jasper is a wonderful protective stone against negativity and can be worn during travel as a shield, a very uplifting stone.
Kunzite is a protective stone that can ward away negative energies. This stone is so useful as it also works with the heart and is a powerful stone of love and higher vibrations.
Labradorite can protect the aura by deflecting undesirable energies, preventing psychic vampirism and apparently spirit possession or influence.
Lapis Lazuli is said to guard the wearer or carrier against negative psychic emanations whilst helping us to speak our mind.
Obsidian is one of the strongest protection stones and can shield us from psychic attack and is also said to be a shield from emotional and physical attack. It will seek to purify negative energy in its vicinity, also within the aura, making this a very useful stone. This stone can bring out dark energy from within to heal, and as such is also a healing stone that can even work to remove shock or trauma from a person. Could be used to protect against negative entities.
Black Onyx blocks negative energies from getting in.
Peridot can apparently be used as a shield against others who drain our energy. It might be wise to wear this when around any known energy vampires who leave you significantly drained after speaking with them.
Quartz in general protects against negative influences. Smoky Quartz in particular is excellent for both protection and cleansing, and is highly used in spiritual work.
Clear Quartz and Rutilated Quartz (left) are protective stones that also enhances a person’s aura significantly. Those in the know often wear a piece, like a pendant, or carry a small piece with them. This stone is a lot cheaper than diamond but is similar in a lot of ways. Very powerful for protection.
Black Sapphire is a stone of protection.
Tigers Eye is a stone of protection and also abundance.
Black Tourmaline is one of the most powerful protectors against the negative energy from others in both the Earth plane and the spirit plane, and so is a good crystal to keep next to your bed at night. It is said to reflect negative energy back to the sender. Also is said to deflect the energy and radiation from electrical equipment.
Turquoise is a powerful stone for healing and also has the ability to protect against negative energies. It is even said to change color to warn against danger and illness.
For a quick fix against negativity, you can use simple table salt (or sea salt) in a small bag placed in a pocket or purse. The salt absorbs negativity and will only need replacing every few months. A good way to cleanse crystals from negativity is by periodically placing them in direct sunlight for a few hours to recharge and cleanse away old energies.
