I’m frequently asked what are the best crystals for protection?
This is an interesting topic, and I personally feel that if you focus on the need for energetic protection (like psychic attack for example), you may very well attract the negative energies into your life that you’re looking to protect yourself against. That said, I understand those energies exist, and I’ve addressed it in the second section below.
Then there is electromagnetic smog, pollution and the omissions from our computers, phones and electronic devices which pervade our lives. Crystals can help to protect against those energies.
And finally, I’ve added some crystals that can help healers, counsellors and other healthcare professionals protect themselves and their treatment rooms energetically.
Crystal protection against electromagnetic smog or EMF)
These crystals can be placed near computers, televisions, microwave ovens and other electrical devices. I have also heard that some people tape small tumble stones to the back of their mobile phone cover.
- Amazonite is known to absorb microwaves and mobile phone emanations, and protect against electromagnetic pollution. It is also an extremely soothing stone. At an emotional level, Amazonite soothes emotional trauma, alleviating worry and fear. It dispels negative energy and aggravation.
- Green Aventurine – protects against electromagnetic smog, and it also diffuses negative situations and turns them around. This is also a positive stone of prosperity.
- Smoky Quartz – grounds spiritual energy and gently neutralises negative vibrations. It is also a great crystal for blocking geopathic stress and electromagnetic smog. As one the most efficient grounding and anchoring stones, smoky quartz also can help you to feel more safe and comfortable within yourself (if you’re feeling like you need energetic protection).
- Black Tourmaline is a protective stone, protecting against cell phones, electromagnetic smog, radiation, psychic attack and negative energies of all kinds. Connected with the base chakra, it grounds energy and increases physical vitality, dispersing tension and stress.
- Black Tourmaline with Quartz – this carries all of the protective properties of Black Tourmaline, as well as the healing, amplifying properties of Quartz.
Crystals for energetic protection
The following crystals are excellent allies for energetic protection such as psychic attacks, unwanted entities and negative energies. Wearing crystals can be a great way of keeping them on you at all times. Some people prefer to carry tumble stones or leave them on their desk (if they work in a negative environment).
- Amethyst is known to be an extremely powerful and protective stone with a high spiritual vibration. This gorgeous purple stone guards against psychic attack, transmuting the energy into love. It is typically associated with the third-eye, or sixth chakra.
- Aqua Aura stimulates channelling and self-expression, and deepens spiritual attainment and communication. It is a protective stone that safeguards against psychic or psychological attack. Used in conjunction with other crystals, Aqua Aura enhances their healing properties. It brings profound peace during meditation.
- Labradorite – a highly mystical and protective stone, a bringer of light. It raises consciousness and connects with higher energies. It deflects unwanted energies from the aura and prevents energy leakage. It removes other people’s projections, including thought forms that have hooked into the aura.
- Malachite – amplifies both positive and negative energies. It grounds spiritual energies onto the planet. And it is believed by some people that it will be one of the most important healing stones of the millennium. It is an important protection stone, and helps to protect against negative energies and radiation of all kinds.
- Ametrine, Apache Tear, Ajoite with Shattuckite, Moss Agate, Rutilated Quartz (see below) can also protect against psychic attack.
Crystals for the protection of healers and therapists
Healing and other healthcare practitioners can protect their energy and the purity of treatment space using the following crystals. The treatment space should be cleansed (with smudging) after each treatment. This will ensure the crystals are cleansed as well. Having crystals in the treatment space also raises the vibration in the room and enhances the healing experience.
- Prehnite – is a stone of unconditional love and the crystal to heal the healer. It is said to connect to Archangel Raphael (the archangel of healing). Prehnite enhances precognition and inner knowing. It is a stone that enables you always to be prepared.
- Rutilated Quartz – is helpful for therapists and counsellors as it filters negative energy from a client, and at the same time supports their energy field during emotional release and confrontation with the darker aspects of the psyche.
- Rose Quartz is the stone of unconditional love and infinite peace – these qualities live within your core always. Rose Quartz purifies and opens the heart at all levels, and brings deep inner healing as well as self-love. It is calming, reassuring and will diffuse loving energy when you or your clients are feeling emotionally overwhelmed.
- Selenite – has a very fine vibration and brings clarity of mind, opening the crown and higher crown chakras. It is an ideal crystal for accessing angelic consciousness and higher guidance. It is one of the best crystals for Reiki practitioners to use. Selenite is a calming stone that instills deep peace and is excellent for meditation or spiritual work.
- Snakeskin Jasper – is a protective crystal. it guards against negativity, including the negative outlooks and behaviours of other people, shields from psychic attack and also protects against temptations which would be harmful or damaging. It is also said to boost the cleansing of an environment when smudging.
If you are using crystals for protection, I recommend smudging them regularly (with sage). It’s also worth cleansing and charging them under the light of the full moon, or short periods in the sun.
