Is it time to let go of negative thoughts?

Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed by all the negativity in the world? It seems to be everywhere. From overbearing bosses to lethargic coworkers, nagging in-laws to rude young hooligans, where does it end? 

Even strangers in the streets are full of road rage. Perhaps you have your own angry outbursts to contend with. We have been conditioned to negative thought patterns from a young age. Born with the instinct to survive, we are naturally skeptical and cautious of the unknown.

In school, we are taught to be competitive and fear failure. People are pitted against each other, and this breeds a society riddled with negative behavior. It is so ingrained into the psyche that we are usually unaware of our own negativity.

Evade energy vampires, nay-sayers, and bad influences by utilizing the power of protective crystals. Shedding destructive people and unwanted thoughts helps you focus on the positive things you can do and achieve in your life. 

What crystals are for protecting against negative energy?

You need protection from all kinds of negative energies. Negativity seems to be all around: in your doubts and dark thoughts, external dangers, violence, foul neighbors, the list goes on and on.

Protection crystals exist to help you escape these exact problems and situations. Let your inner light shine bright when you keep away the dark forces with healing stones.

Most black and brown stones are effective in providing a grounding, protected energy. However, protection stones of other colors also have their powers.

If you want protection during your dealings with others, wear a bracelet or a necklace to keep your aura safe. 

Keep reading for techniques you can use to protect yourself from bad influences.

How to use Protection Crystals to Safeguard against other People's Negative energy

There are several ways to keep yourself protected from people who are up to no good. We always recommend you keep protection stones right on your body.

That could mean wearing a black Tourmaline necklace to a party, sporting a Jet bracelet to the beach, or even discreetly adorning yourself with Onyx cufflinks at a business meeting.

For those who can not or choose not to wear jewelry, a polished or raw stone does the trick equally as well. Carry a polished Tigers Eye worry stone in your pocket or a small Pyrite rock in your purse.

If you work in an environment full of unhealthy coworkers, you may need something larger than a small stone or jewelry. Perhaps keep an Obsidian Sphere or Shungite Sphere on your work desk to deflect chronic negativity. If someone asks you about it, you can say that it is a decorative paperweight - and that is not a lie!

The same goes for your home life; if there is too much bad energy going around in the family or among roommates, it is time to protect yourself with larger pieces of protection crystals. A tasteful Carnelian Heart in the middle of the living room table might defuse some of the anger and replace it with love.

How to use Protective Crystals to remove your own negative energy

Protective crystals can help eliminate some of your own chronically negative thoughts and patterns. Keep a stone on or near you at all times. When you see it, the crystal will serve as a physical reminder to be optimistic. Even when you forget all about it, the stone energetically protects you from destructive thoughts.

To be even more proactive, you can form crystal grids around your body while you relax or sleep. Doing positive affirmations while in the grid will amplify the effects.

Stones like Jet are incredible protective forces that can help keep you calm while driving. Place it in the car, whether it is on the dashboard, in the glove compartment, or in the cup holder. Let the protective stone alleviate some of that road rage.

What is the best crystal to wear daily?

One of the easiest ways to keep protected all day long is by tossing on a Protection Bracelet. Real crystals defend you from psychic attacks and falling ill emotionally. These are the best sellers that our clients rave about:



What crystals protect the home?

  • Clean your new home or apartment before moving. Sweep the air in each room with Selenite crystal and cleanse it with sage. 

  • Form grids in any room to keep out bad vibrations. To keep a particular room safe, form protective grids by placing several stones like Tourmaline, Obsidian, and Hematite around the room. Place one in each corner of the room, and preferably more in between

  • Put a raw protection crystal facing the door to suck out the negative energy of anyone entering. When someone comes into your home, the crystal will take the negative energy so you and your space don't become affected. The guest will feel better too. Onyx, Jet, and Shungite are good choices.

  • Put a Protection Crystal in the garden to keep out trespassers. A large garden piece of Crocodile Jasper, Tourmaline, or Tigers Eye can help prevent unwanted strangers from coming over.

Lisa's Personal Experience with Protection Crystals and Spirit Possession

I have a natural love and attraction for dark stones. Obsidian has been my favorite crystal for as long as I can remember. It is my top choice protection crystal that safeguards my soul.

The most memorable experience I had with protection crystals was when I was treating a client through hypnotherapy. She was recalling her history and experiences. There was so much negative energy flowing out of her memories, that it got me overwhelmed and surprised. I knew that I would have to increase the presence of my protective Obsidian for the next session so that I won't be affected in a bad way.

In the following session, I was even better prepared with more protective stones and a five-inch Obsidian Ball to safeguard my energy. If a therapist isn't immune to the negative energy of the client, they aren't able to help. Thanks to Obsidian, I was able to continue her therapy objectively and release my client from a gigantic burden she had been holding onto her entire life.

I cannot emphasize enough how important Protection Crystals are for people who are working with clients and patients. It is equally important for everyone who has contact with the general public or even friends and family members who can be negatively minded.

As if your negative thoughts and doubts are not enough to contend with, do you want to take on someone else's problems? No, you do not. The best way to help yourself and to help others is to be able to empathize without compromising your health, safety, and sanity.

Most Powerful Crystal Spheres to Protect Your Soul

These crystal balls deflect negative energy away from your aura and soul. If you are a therapist or doctor, they are essential in your practice.

Crystal spheres are the top choice for cleansing the darkness in a home.

For those wanting protection at work, the spheres double as discrete decorative pieces and paperweights. The crystal ball wards off tiresome coworkers and bosses without them even knowing it. 



What crystals make you happy?

You will notice a major surge in your positive energy once you clear out the negative forces that were holding you back. It may feel like a heavy stone has been lifted off of your shoulders, even off of your soul.

Shedding destructive people from your life helps you focus on the positive things you can do and achieve.

By using Protective Crystals to get rid of the negative thought patterns that were disrupting your progress, it becomes easier to achieve your dreams positively.
