Crystals can be used by the hardiest and bravest of us if we feel the need for protection. Irrespective of how optimistic one is, it is possible to take in the negativity owing to the doom and gloom that is broadcasted in the news. The negativity that is consistently streamed over various media, leads to a feeling of anxiety and depression. Our digital lifestyles have been credited with an increase in desolation, dejection and cheerlessness. Toxic and codependent relationships may also make one wish for armor or protection. External pessimism makes a great catalyst to stir up inner negativity which translates as antagonism, uncertainty, and self-sabotage. Regardless, be it internal or external factors that one may need to shield oneself from, protection can be provided by the use of crystals.
Crystals are made up of minerals. Like human beings, they carry energy that we can use and interact with. Therefore, crystals protect us from external adverse energy and also enable us to channel strength to protect ourselves and ground ourselves. Sometimes the use of crystals brings about illumination and clarity on what to cut loose and walk away from.
The four crystals that are fantastic for protecting oneself owing to their high vibrational energy are mentioned below. The energy from these crystals can be brought into your life by, wearing them in the form of a pendant, ring, bangle or beads, or by holding them in your hand during the process of meditation. I also allow my crystals to be moon soaked on full moon nights and sometimes to be sunbathed if they have been used to cleanse trauma. I hope that the following information can be useful for you, to bring balance, peace, strength, and protection to your lives.
