People often look to crystals for two main reasons: firstly, they have a magical beauty about them and secondly, they do something special for their spirit and overall well-being. One of the most common uses for crystals is protection and removing negative energy. Here are five crystals that do just that.
Black Tourmaline, as it resembles charcoal, has some of the same effects, removing impurities and toxins not only from the body, but also from the mind and spirit. This magical black crystal is exceptional for negative energy removal in that it not only dispels, but also absorbs negative vibrations from the environment. The color of this particular healing crystal reminds us of the night sky: deep and mysterious with an unfathomable capacity for healing power. Wear black tourmaline around your neck or keep it near the entrances of the home to cleanse the energy entering your home and auric field.
Ruby is known to vibrate fiercely with pure life force energy (or chi as its vibrant red color would suggest), allowing for healthy, free flowing energy throughout the chakras as well as in your home. It strengthens, revitalizes, and balances to bring stability, confidence, and endurance to the wearer. Negativity crumbles around you as the power of this healing stone fills you with courage and determination. Remove stagnant energy and keep your passion alive with ruby – your life will change on so many levels. Wear it on your finger or carry it in your pocket (just don’t lose it!)
Clear Quartz is perhaps one of the most well-known crystals for negative energy removal. As the first discovered healing crystal, many ancient civilizations believed it to be water immortally frozen and utilized its healing powers for many purposes, both spiritual and practical. It cleanses and purifies the aura while aligning the chakras to bring the body, mind, and spirit into perfect harmony with each other. This magical clear crystal represents, in itself, the purification of energy as well as clarity of the mind. Wear clear quartz in earrings or keep it on a windowsill to gather the natural healing energies of the moon and the sun.
Amber is among the older “crystals” known to mankind. Nevertheless, this fossilized tree resin still holds many amazing healing powers that bring soothing, positive, and revitalizing energies to the environment. It enhances the body’s ability to heal itself and promotes alignment of the chakras for unity of the mind, body, and spirit. In ancient times, it was burned as incense for negative energy removal. However, today you may use it as jewelry or incorporate it into your feng shui (reference a bagua map to learn which areas of the home it works best in).
Blue Calcite is best known for soothing and relaxing the mind, but what’s not very commonly known is that this blue healing crystal will transmute negative energy and bring calming positive vibrations in its place. Having a subtle blue tone, it often makes us think of clear skies and its energy is very similar in comparison. It lends its energies to protect the aura as well as the mind from negativity, harm, and outside influences so your energy remains yours. As it balances the emotional body, it brings ease of communication between the heart and the head so you can avoid conflict caused by misunderstandings. Wear it on a necklace or keep it in the home.
Crystals for negative energy removal don’t require too much attention as most of them charge themselves, but it’s still important to cleanse away the energy they have absorbed. Do this by bathing them in moonlight or sunlight, or by passing them through sage smoke.
