Crystals for Protection

Everything in life contains energy. 

Although we find peace in solitude or during a spiritual practice, being exposed to negative energies is inevitable for everyone. Negative energies can enter the auric field as a cloud in your head or as a mental barrier causing you to become uninspired, lazy, short-tempered, jealous, or insecure. 

Fortunately, nature has your back. 

There are a lot of protective crystals you can benefit from. Crystals like black tourmaline and obsidian generally clear out any type of negative blockages in the body or your area while other crystals like Kunzite and Labradorite can both dispel unwanted energies and nurture specific areas in your life.

Protective crystals are important for a lot of reasons. It can be used to clear out a sacred space where you do meditation or psychic readings. These types of crystals can also be used to improve the quality of your relationships by taking away the dangers of ego and insecurity.

How to Use Crystals for Protection

Protective crystals can serve as a shield from daily stresses that may stem from work, commute, or strangers that you meet as you drive home. 

Just as much as we want to, as modern witches, we can’t remain in meditation forever. We are obligated to face the world, go to our day jobs, face traffic, get groceries, and meet our family and friends once in a while.

If you decide to live in a natural environment, you’d have to face similar yet different kinds of problems as well. May it be the weather, the pests, or the surrounding animals that can disturb the structure of your home. 

Despite the rocking disturbance of everyday life, we must learn how to face it with confidence, trust, and clarity. 

If at some point in your life, you experience situations that provoke your urge to react negatively, protective crystals can help inspire you to stop holding on to things that do not serve you any longer.
