An Empath's Must-Have Crystals
A year ago
Crystals are essential in any empath's toolkit because they are powerful allies to aid in regeneration and protection. The right crystals can also help empaths to embrace their power and use their gift to bring light to the world and to others. We've put together a list of eight crystals an empath might consider adding to their collection. You're not in this alone so let your crystal friends help you out!
This volcanic glass will serve as an empath's shield against negative, draining energy. Obsidian is known to be very grounding and will help you stay in touch with your power and the good around you even while energy vampires knowingly or unknowingly pull you away and leave you empty. Keep this stone close to protect your energy and keep you grounded in your power.
Another gentle and grounding stone, Brown Agate will help you to stay firmly on the ground even as emotions are running amuck all around you. Agate can be used not only to protect against negative energy, but to transform it into positive energy. Any empath will benefit from calling on the powers of Agate to stay grounded and alchemize negative vibes into good.
This green beauty is like a breath of fresh air. It has protective qualities similar to Agate and Obsidian, but specializes in the heart chakra and helping energy to flow. Malachite can help you connect with your inner wisdom, feel into vibes, and alert you when something is not quite right. Call on this stone to keep negative energies at bay and to know when a boundary needs to be put in place to keep your heart safe.
Connect with your third eye and call on your own psychic abilities with the help of Amethyst. This purple powerhouse aids in recovery from grief, sadness, and loss and can replace chaos with calm. Empaths can call on its powers to connect with the spiritual realm and keep a positive relationship with their emotions.
Empaths often need a reminder to love themselves even as they're busy caring for others. Allow the stone of unconditional love to gently nudge you to take care of yourself. Protecting yourself doesn't need to mean shutting people out and Rose Quartz will help to create a sense of calm and tranquility within. Use it to cleanse yourself of negative emotions and cleanse your soul of darkness.
Let the sun shine in with this happy crystal friend. Citrine is the master of sunshine and good vibes and will help to reduce the stress and anxiety that can sometimes come with feeling things so deeply. Allow this ally to remind you of your personal power and shed light on all that you wish to manifest. With Citrine in your corner, you'll have sunshine even on the darkest days.
Negative energy will cower in the face of this powerful protector! Closely associated with the base chakra, Black Tourmaline will help you plant your roots firmly and help you feel grounded no matter the outside circumstances you're facing. Call on its power to reenforce your self confidence and stand in your truth, even as you transform negative energy into positivity.
As an empath, it can be easy to lose your voice in a sea of emotion and other people's opinions. Lapis Lazuli can help you to stay in touch with your inner voice and truth. Being able to speak your truth can help you to foster positive, energizing relationships as you bond with those who see and honor the authentic you. This blue wonder will help you express yourself in a way that rings true to you and everyone around you.
