Clearing And Protection For Empaths With Crystals


Published:

“You are such a great listener.”

It’s something that empaths hear a lot. What do they hear less?

“Sorry for passing all of my energy baggage onto you!”

Unless someone is an empath, they are likely unaware that their energy can rub off onto someone else—especially not in a way that could negatively alter that person’s energy. The best way one can explain a fraction of what empaths experience, is to relate it to being able to tell when something is just off with a loved one. You know them, you know their normal energy and can feel that there is a darkness shrouding it. Empaths experience this on a more significant and intuitive level, with those they’ve never met. And not only can they tell when someone’s energy is off, they can feel it. That’s why protection for empaths is so important.

As highly sensitive people, empaths are emotionally, and at times physically, affected by the energy of those around them. While that gives these individuals a deep sense of compassion and understanding, it also leaves them feeling emotionally depleted from the high’s and low’s of a day’s interactions. A situation that is energetically imperceptible to normal person, is overwhelming to an empath. Everything from a crowded mall to an office break room where coworkers are venting can be a stressor on the psyche and moods of an empath.

When your happiness is constantly being drained by the frustrations, anger, grief, sadness or pain of others, you need to replenish your own emotional well before it dries up. Practicing certain techniques will help you to understand which energy is yours, and which you need to cut away at the end of the day. These techniques for protection for empaths will allow you to purify, balance and restore your energy.

3 Mindful Tips for Protection for Empaths

Visualization

Visualizing that you are removing or shielding yourself from energy is helpful for creating a necessary energetic boundary between yourself and others. There are two visualizations that are recommended for empaths. The first should be used in the morning after waking up, and at night before going to sleep. Stand quietly, taking deep breaths with your arms out stretched. Imagine that a giant pair of scissors are cutting around your body, as if to make a paper cutout of you. Picture the scissors cutting away all energetic ties and negative attachments. This allows you to become one with the energy of release. Hold a piece of black tourmaline in each hand to take this to the next level.

The second visualization is useful for preparing your mind before walking into a potentially stressful situation. For example, if you are an empath who works around a lot of people, you may find it helpful to get in the right frame of mind before entering that space. To do this, sit in your car, or a quiet space, before walking into that environment, and breathe long, deep breaths. Once you’ve found your center, visualize a bubble forming around you. This is your shield. Repeat a mantra to yourself, chanting: “I am protected.” When you feel that this shield is strong enough to take on the day’s toxic energy, you’re ready to end the practice. Place a selenite necklace around your neck and head in. In our opinion, wearing one of these necklaces is one of the best practices for protection for empaths. Selenite helps to remove any unwanted energy or energy that is not yours to remove blocks and maintain balance. It also helps to protect and clear your energy field, to ensure that your energy is 100% your own.

Crystal Meditation

Meditating with crystals will help bolster your emotional wellbeing, and allow you to cut the cords of energy vampires who are draining you of all your energetic life force. Black kyanite is recommended for empaths because it acts as a “sword” to take to unhealthy ties. It protects the energy field from people who feast on your positivity, but offer you nothing back. Connecting with Kyanite’s energy when your own energy is drained, forces you to evaluate what’s getting you down. When you decipher what energy is yours, and what energy has been stuck to you, you can set about releasing that toxic negativity. This crystal works with all of the chakras to bring your energy field back into alignment. Sit with black kyanite in meditation, or use it in combination it with the visualization technique. Holding a piece of black kyanite in your hand, sweep it over your body as you picture it cutting away ties.

Clearing And Protecting Your Space

Your home should be your sacred space, where you can escape from all of the energies seeking to attach themselves to you. One way to protect the purity of your space, an essential for protection for empaths, is to create a crystal grid around it. Black tourmaline is a highly protective and shielding crystal. Place a piece of black tourmaline outside all of the entrances to your home. If you are already feeling a dark energy, for added protection, place a piece of black tourmaline in each of the four corners of the room, with small bowls of sea salt to soak up the negative energy.

The practice of sage cleansing, with the intention of dispelling the energy that has come home with you, will keep your environment and psyche from being darkened by the day’s energy. As you sage, preferably nightly or as needed, waft the purifying smoke into the areas of the room that get the most traffic, paying close attention not to skip the windows, closets and doorways.

Once you learn how to cleanse your emotional palette, you can begin to set healthy energetic boundaries around your aura. Taking these steps for protection for empaths will brighten your outlook, and allow you to stabilize your moods by recognizing which are yours, and which are being influenced by outside sources.
