Crystals for Protection & How to Use Them to Stop Negative Energy

Crystals are one of the best ways to protect yourself from the harmful effects of negative energy that surrounds you.

It’s not a matter of if you’re going to encounter negative energy but when.

Let’s discuss several ways for you to feel like you’re wearing the lightest yet strongest suit of positive vibes armor.

The Best Crystal for Protection is Black Tourmaline

To best protect yourself from negative energy you can use the powerful protective properties of black tourmaline.

Think of this crystal as being your full-time bodyguard.

Absorbing negative energy is what this crystal is best used for.

Place it between you and the negative energy you may encounter or anticipate may enter your energetic field.

Smoky Quartz is a Great Crystal For Protection

Another powerful and protective crystal to consider using is smoky quartz.

This crystal is capable of absorbing negative energy by drawing it away from your energetic field.

Smoky quartz can also be useful if you find yourself in an environment with a lot of electromagnetic energy you’re looking to protect yourself from.

Place this crystal in areas where lower vibrational energy exists and be sure to cleanse this crystal frequently.

Especially after it encounters and grounds negative energy.

How to Use Crystals for Protection

There are several ways to use crystals for protection.

1. When you feel unsafe sleeping alone

If you’re going through a break-up or if your significant other is away on vacation and you’re not a fan of sleeping alone, grab a crystal.

Smoky quartz is a great option to consider!

Simply place the crystal at the foot of your bed and enjoy a restful sleep.

2. In toxic environments

Have you ever been in a toxic environment and wished to avoid internalizing that negative energy?

Britney Spears and you have something in common. 🙂

Bring a crystal for protection with you when you head out for the day and be sure to place it between you and lower energy when it’s nearby.

3. When anticipating conflict with a partner

If you know a charged discussion with your partner is about to go down grab a crystal for protection.

Let the crystal do the work of absorbing the negative energy surrounding the conflict.

Be sure to cleanse your crystal after such an encounter as its protective powers need to be recharged.

4. When arguing with a boss or coworker

I’m sure you love your boss as we all absolutely love being told what to do and not being recognized or appreciated for it. haha

If you feel a conflict or passive-aggressive attack ensuing, reach for your protective crystals.

Black tourmaline is perfect in this instance.

Begin by opening your boss’s mouth with uncleansed hands and gently insert the crystal vertically… (just kidding)

“I couldn’t hold back…I started writing at 4 AM and should probably take a break. 🙂

Keep the crystal in between you and the anger and let the energy pass by you, not through you.

5. When you feel stressed or those around you do

Stress and anxiety are something we are sure to deal with at some point during our week.

Keep a black tourmaline crystal or smoky quartz crystal on you when you feel this energy building.

My favorite technique to use with crystals for protection is to hold one hand in your hand and squeeze it while taking in a long deep breath.

Quickly release the breathe while you release your tight grip on the crystal.

It’s instant relief and can be repeated 3-5 times for optimal results!

Next Steps

Make sure to purchase not only a crystal or two for protection but be sure to also purchase something to cleanse these crystals as well.

Protective crystals need to be cleansed more than any crystal you’ll ever own due to the negative energy they absorb.

This energy needs to be discharged after an encounter with negative energy or at least once every 2-3 months.
