Crystals are trendy, I know. We see them all over IG and in every spiritual guru’s altar, but this is for a reason, babes. It’s because crystals are powerful stuff! They are used for so many different things — energy shifting, emotional regulation, and even protection. If you are part of my YouTube family then you already know I love love love using crystals for all different types of things (I just recently shared how I use them in my full moon bath rituals on the blog!) but today I want to chat with you specifically about protection crystals!
Before we get specifically into protection crystals, I want to touch on how crystals work and how you can use them in your daily life. Crystals have been used for decades as an alternative form of medicine. However, the fact that they are packed with natural healing elements is what makes them so unique.
Luckily in today’s world, the options are limitless in how to use them in your daily life. Crystals are made into accessories like bracelets and necklaces, and rings. They are also incorporated into water bottles and coasters to supercharge what you are putting into your body.
Besides all the cool modern ways we can use crystals, the options are limitless with the crystals in their natural form:
Keep one in your pocket/purse.
Hold one in your hand.
Put them next to your bedside.
Decorate with them in every room.
Take with you to your favorite yoga class.
The list goes on and on.
However, you choose to use them daily; the purpose is always to raise your vibration. And again, with how supercharged crystals are, they quickly achieve this. So naturally, when we feel we need to protect our energy — this is where these special protection crystals come in:
Selenite: This crystal is world-renowned for its purging of negativity and restoring mental clarity. It has a natural ability to do this by blocking any and all mental and psychic attacks. Bonus: Selenite is absolutely stunning. This crystal is ideal to use around your house to protect yourself from any lousy juju entering!
Amethyst: This is one of my go-to favorite protection crystals. This crystal is highly protective in a super physical way. Headache? Amethyst. Insomnia? Amethyst. It is a protector of our body and health, babe! It even goes as far as clearing brain waves (and thus brain fog) and helps relax our sympathetic nervous system. Put a small crystal under your pillow and absorb all this crystal has to offer you!
Obsidian: Obsidian is a powerhouse of protection from dark energy. What makes it unique is that it actually pulls the dark energy you have existing inside you to the surface and purges it by making you aware of it. There is power in knowledge, right? Obsidian gives you the ability to release the energy that no longer serves you.
Pyrite: This is gold’s younger but mightier sister, commonly referred to as FOOL’S GOLD. Pyrite’s primary goal is purity, so it purifies everything from the smog circulating in the LA air to the negative thoughts running through your head. It literally repeals toxicity. What more do I need to say?
Tigers Eye: Tigers Eye is nicknamed The Shapeshifter. This powerful crystal empowers you to embody your personal strength and willpower. AKA, it enables you to protect yourself. Historically it was carried as a protection amulet to ward off evil, curses, and sickness.
Jet: This is technically a stone but a super strong and protective one. This lies in its power to remove negative energy like anger, fears, and worries and instead recharge you with positivity and health. It has a profoundly calming effect, so make sure to pick up this stone when experiencing stress or anxiety!
Labradorite: Also a stone, but again too good at protection to keep it off this list! Labradorite is valued for its ability to add a layer of protection to your physical, mind, and energetic field. Thus, it can prevent you from taking on negative energy and help you keep your personal boundaries strong.
Black Tourmaline: This stone literally swallows negative energies. Combine this with the fact it is extra connected with the base chakras that help you feel grounded and safe — and we have the perfect protection crystal! It can really provide the foundation for you to live your most rooted and secure life.
Although this is quite a list of protective crystals, this is also just a TASTE of the value crystals have to offer. I have a whole video on my YouTube channel where I share my favorite crystals for manifesting and I also recently had crystal expert and published author Heather Askinosie as a guest on my podcast The Yoga Inspired Life. Oh my gosh, guys, SO MUCH juicy magic HERE about crystals. If this blog inspired you to learn more, this is your next step!
