Wherever you go and whoever you are; you are connected energetically to other people and your environment. Many people don’t realize how much external energies influence their moods and behavior. Have you ever been around a person who was chronically angry and complaining? You may have noticed that in time, you started to feel tired and maybe even a bit irritable yourself. The reason is the energetic bond you formed with this person.
Many who work in offices or around a lot of electronic equipment also notice that they feel inexplicably exhausted and struggle to focus. This is the result of electromagnetic fields and radiation emitted from all the equipment within a tight, often enclosed space. Noise pollution can also create havoc.
Obviously we can’t spend our whole lives avoiding everyone and every place that could elicit a negative response. This is where crystal healing and protection can be very valuable.
There are several crystals that can absorb, cleanse, block and transform negative energies. Wearing crystals is one way to have protection wherever you go. You can also carry loose gems in your pocket or purse, or place them around areas that tend to be draining. This applies to office space as well. Place absorbing crystals around computers and other equipment to improve energy and productivity.
There are many crystals available with protective properties; here are a few of the more popular ones.
Amethyst: This stone has been used since ancient times for its healing and protective properties. It is used to clear the mind and can also cleanse and balance the auric field.
Citrine: This vibrant stone has amazingly high energy and raises the vibrations of those who wear or carry it. It is believed to relieve stress and anxiety caused by self-doubt and is also said to dispel anger and resentment. It can help improve memory and clarity of focus for those under a lot of pressure to multitask.
Clear Quartz: The most universal of the healing crystals; clear quartz is beautiful and extremely versatile. It absorbs, amplifies and transmits energies and can also be used to amplify the energy of other stones.
Smoky Quartz: Like it’s clear counterpart, this stone is very powerful and used to transmute negative energies while simultaneously promoting positive thoughts. It is a grounding crystal and good for times where anxiety or stress leads to mind fog.
Crystals used for protection should be cleansed and recharged periodically. They can be used alone or in groups depending on your specific needs.
