Crystals for shielding an empath

As a life coach, I am often asked by empaths how to protect against negative energies. How can one keep from taking on the thoughts and feelings of others? There are many layers to this. However, crystals are an amazing option. They are a great tool to help protect your energies and raise them when they have been depleted.

I am one who does believe in these souvenirs found within our mother earth.  There are plenty of skeptical people out there. Crystals have been used for centuries for many things. Roman warriors carried them into battle for physical protection. Hematite was their stone of choice. Lapis Lazuli was used in royal tombs for protection in the afterlife.

Crystals protect in many ways, such as protection from negative thoughts of toxic people or people in passing. Emotions such as anger or Jealousy leave one feeling drained, agitated, and troubled. Spiritual protection can assist you in shaking off these negative energies quickly. Certain crystals are powerful protection against stressful environments such as Malls or airports, or even school where people are known to have poor attitudes and quick tempers. They provide relief from these negative thoughts.

It is important to choose a crystal that aligns with the type of protection that will shield emotions, as well as one that aligns with your intentions.

Crystals are used as a great reminder of your intention to stay positive and call on your inner guidance as well as your spirit guides.
