I’m a huge fan of crystals, not only for their colour and beauty, but for their multitude of uses. I use them in all sorts of ways, but find them especially powerful for protection and space clearings. It can be a tad overwhelming when starting out (there are 1000s!) so I’ve picked a few favourites …
Not only beautiful, but a powerful protective stone with a high spiritual vibration. Extremely beneficial to the mind, it calms or stimulates when appropriate, helping us feel less scattered and more focused. Holding one can enhance meditation and spiritual work; place one near your desk or door to keep your space cleansed.
Black tourmaline is one of the most effective stones for protection; it will help absorb the negativity and stress of anyone nearby, making it ideal to keep in your handbag, car or drawer at work. Tourmalines are said to also offer protection from harmful EMFs, or can be placed around your house for protection.
One of the most efficient grounding and anchoring stones of all (and we all need more of that!). A superb antidote to stress, this protective crystal relieves fear, lifts depression, and brings emotional calmness. It can help people to release negativity and old emotional/psychic hooks that no longer serve them.
This stone gently releases hooks from previous relationships by strengthening and replenishing your heart chakra energy. Although this is softer form of obsidian than the classic black variety, it still provides psychic protection and absorbs negativity. It can be used to help relieve stress in uncertain times (like these!).
Citrine is a powerful good luck stone that energizes every level of life. This stone brings joy, prosperity, protection and self-confidence. Known as a Merchant’s Stone, citrine is associated with abundance and financial prosperity. Keep a piece in your wallet or cash register to attract money luck!
Rose quartz attracts love from others, builds self-love, and promotes inner healing. ‘The stone of love’ can restore trust and harmony by warding off negative energies. Some say that if Rose Quartz is placed by the bed or the relationship corner of a home, located in the SW, it will attract love and strengthen relationships.
This powerful stone can open the third eye and crown chakras, allowing for deeper meditation and angelic communication. This stone’s high vibration also provides mental clarity and enhanced decisiveness; it is highly recommended for students and businesses.
When using a Selenite for clearing your personal energy, place it over your chest or use it in a downward sweeping motion by hovering it a few cms above your skin, brushing away negative energy.
Caring for crystals
Wafting or fanning white sage smoke around crystals is an excellent way to cleanse crystals quickly.
Allowing them to regularly soak up moonlight and sunlight is also a good practice.
Salt water is an excellent cleanser for most crystals, except for ones ending in ‘ite’, such as selenite, fluorite, etc, as these can be damaged by water.
Alternatively, place crystals near a selenite stick to cleanse and strengthen their energy. This is also an excellent way to cleanse diamonds and crystal jewellery, especially if it catches the sunlight.
