Top 7 Best Crystals for Protection

No matter who you are, we all struggle with negative energy. Whether it’s in the form of stress from work, anxiety from past relationships, or just pessimistic people in our everyday lives, negative energy is all around us, and the constant weight of it can make us feel so scattered sometimes. However, just because negativity is present in our lives doesn’t mean we have to let it take us on a rollercoaster whenever it wants to. In fact, there are many unique ways you can block out these negative energies around you and align yourself with higher energy vibrations for a more positive, balanced, and fulfilling life. From meditation to smudging, the number of powerful spiritual practices that can help you protect yourself is truly endless. However, in this article, we’re going to focus on one of the most powerful ways today, and that’s through the use of healing crystals. 


So whether you’re in need of protection from anxiety, nightmares, or even past emotional trauma, don’t worry; we have a crystal for that. Here are our top 7 picks for the most powerful protection crystals on the market to help you build a strong spiritual barrier unlike any other.


  1. Black Tourmaline

Starting off, our first pick goes to black tourmaline. Often referred to as the bodyguard of crystals, black tourmaline is considered to be one of the most powerful crystals for repelling negative energy and protecting the aura. It is believed to not only rid the body of fear but to simultaneously block psychic attacks and increase the strength in our spiritual walls. In addition, black tourmaline also vibrates with a stable, grounding energy because of its association to the lower chakras; therefore, it is excellent for soothing the minds of those that struggle with stress or anxiety. So whether you choose to wear it on a necklace or just simply have it in your space, this crystal is an absolute must if you’re in need of a little extra protection in your everyday life.


  1. Amethyst

Next is the divine and beautiful amethyst. Sought-after for its vibrant color and natural intuitive nature, amethyst is directly connected with the third eye chakra and crown chakra, vibrating at a high frequency that works to lift your natural vibration and align you with your highest self. And because of the grounding energies associated with this crystal, amethyst is also believed to protect against anxious or addictive tendencies, healing the subconscious mind and helping to guide you into higher consciousness. With such a strong connection to the divide, it can also conjure up feelings of relaxation, which is why it is a common stone used in meditation. For this reason, it is often recommended to be placed under the pillow of those who suffer from nightmares, insomnia, and overthinking, as it has a naturally soothing and calming vibration about it. 


  1. Obsidian

Next is the grounding and stabilizing stone of obsidian. Formed from cooled molten lava, obsidian works as a protective shield, absorbing negative vibes within us and neutralizing our surrounding area. Often used in scrying, obsidian is an excellent crystal for collecting scattered energies, helping one to feel whole again in mind, body, and spirit. Through its connection to the root chakra, obsidian can also support intentions related to energetic stability and is known to deflect negative intentions sent your way and return them back to the sender. On top of that, this stone is also helpful in assisting you in cutting negative ties in your life, making it an excellent stone for assisting us through big emotional changes of the heart, such as a break-up.


  1. Smoky Quartz

Next, smokey quartz is often deemed one of the best mental protection crystals for its ability to free the mind of emotional stress and scattered thoughts. This is majorly thanks to its grounding properties, which, when worn, can move you to a higher state of consciousness, leaving behind ill habits and negative thought patterns. For this reason, smokey quartz is great for releasing past trauma, dispersing fear, and relieving emotional pain. When worn, smokey quartz can bring healing to our outer self, creating a natural field of protection around us, helping us to be less swayed by the movements of the world around us. 


  1. Apache Tears

Next, another powerful crystal to use for emotional protection is Apache tears. Apache tears are small, high vibrational stones that are often used for overcoming grief and sorrow. Though small, these crystals are essential for uprooting deep emotional problems within us for a total body detox. Aside from this, they are also excellent at blocking out psychic attacks and attachments and can help us to build our energetic barriers to block out ill energies. Apache tears are also naturally strong crystals for grounding and protection purposes and help to aid in clearing negative emotions that may be holding you back. Use these stones regularly in meditation to help cleanse your energy field and strengthen your spiritual walls for a more positive and balanced life.


  1. Labradorite

Next, labradorite is another powerful, transformative stone with a divine vibration unlike any other. While many are drawn to the ancient magic associated with this crystal, its true power rests in its ability to soothe anger and shield the aura from psychic attacks. Contrary to popular belief, psychic attacks don’t have to be done by a negative spirit or entity but can actually take on many different forms of negativity such as gossip, jealousy, ill-wishing, and even hexing. Therefore, you can wear labradorite to create an energetic shield of protection around your aura to prevent all ill intentions from coming your way. It can also be used in meditation to strengthen your spiritual walls, align with ancient healing magic, and balance the chakras.


  1. Jet

And lastly, jet is another excellent protection crystal for empaths as it helps to rid the body of anxiety and fear. Like an energetic filter, jet is a powerful grounding stone with extraordinary purification properties that work to transform negative energy into pure healing energy. An excellent grounding crystal, jet can also be used in cleansing practices to remove energy blockages as well as ward off negative vibrations, lifting the energy of the entire space it is in. For that reason, spiritual sensitives and empaths who often suffer from an overload of energy in their daily lives should carry jet with them to prevent sporadic energy attachments and to help keep emotions at bay.

 

Overall, there are many different powerful healing crystals out there that can help you with protection. Whether you’re looking for aura protection, protection from nightmares, or even protection from everyday stress and anxiety, you can rest assured these seven crystals will always have your back. Just don’t forget to cleanse them regularly to keep their vibrations high, as well as set your personal intentions with them to allow their healing energies to align with you on a truly intimate spiritual and divine level.

You ROCK Spirit Chick – GREAT information. Whenever I go shopping for crystals, I get so overwhelmed and this information is perfect for making a ‘list’ first and THEN walking in to find them. I always hold the stones first to see how they feel, but I can’t wait to get deeper into the crystals and let them do their work. Deep bow to you for sharing your wisdom.
