Using Crystals for Protection


There is a lot more activity going on in our environment from souls that don’t have physical bodies. All life is comprised of atoms and molecules vibrating at various speeds; when a frequency or vibration is very slow, it’s what gives matter the appearance of being solid. Everything has a consciousness and soul.

New technology can show more on film than what we are aware. Common names are spirits, ghosts, angels, orbs, entities, lost souls or loved ones. Their intentions are good, more often wanting to feel our frequency or use our body to have experiences. Even though most have good intentions, we should still keep our auras strong to prevent them from attaching to us and draining our energy.

There’s a variety of crystals that can be used for protection. Black tourmaline is great; it’s so protective that it protects against black magic, also absorbing lower vibrational energies. You can place four pieces of black tourmaline, one in each corner of your home or office for protection. Labradorite’s beautiful — it radiates and projects the colors creating a strong aura of rainbow protection around the wearer.

Citrines are another great crystal; it transmutes all energies to gold light. Placing a cluster of citrine in a room or at work also brings about cheery dispositions. Quartz crystals have been used since before Lemuria for healing and protection by strengthening and filling our auras with white light, by wearing it. They can also be programmed which strengthens and amplifies your intentions.

There is a combination of two stones when used in conjunction that gives the best protection — chlorite in quartz and amethyst. This combination can be worn or placed in a specific area of your home. I keep mine by my bed. All of the obsidians are great protectors as well, my favorite being rainbow. They are very protective but still allow some energies through grounding everything else. You can place one piece under your bed or wear it.

Hematite and Smokey quartz both ground lower vibrational energies. Hematite’s white light fills and strengthens our aura. Smokey quartz strengthens, protects and grounds all lower vibrational energies to the earth. Smokey quartz clusters placed at work or home can have the same effect.

To program a crystal for protection, you need just one. Hold the crystal at your heart chakra and imagine the stone emitting a brilliant white light in the shape of a bubble. Now see yourself safely inside the impenetrable bubble and all lower vibrational energies bouncing off of it and going away. Hold this visualization for 15 minutes and you’re done. Keep the crystal in aura to keep you protected. Have fun!
