Crystals For Protection

Carrying stones for protection may seem like spiritual make-believe, but the practice of carrying specific talismans for protection and good luck has been a part of humanity for thousands of years.

There are times in all our lives when we need protection. This may be a time you feel stuck in a toxic relationship, or it may be when you feel paralyzed and anxious from the 24 hour news cycle’s endless stream of gloom and doom. Maybe you have an especially draining job, coworkers, or family members. Perhaps you may just feel like you are being clouded by negative energy. Regardless, there can be factors both, internal and external, that cause us to feel like we need some kind of shield or protection. If you are dealing with self-negativity, self-sabotage, toxic relationships, or negativity from others, protections using crystals may help.

Crystals can not only be used to protect you from outside sources and negative energies, they may also be able to help you harness the strength to protect yourself and the clarity to know when to walk away. Below is a list of crystals to help protect you. This is not an exhaustive list, but you may notice themes that could help you identify other protective stones in the future. For instance, many protective stones are black or white in color.

You can harness these crystals energies by holding them in your hand during meditation, by wearing them on your person throughout the day, or simply placing them throughout your space. We hope you find this information helpful and can use the power of crystals to find peace, love, and balance in your life.
