5 signs you need to wear a protective crystal:
Feeling Drained and Exhausted: If you find yourself constantly fatigued, both physically and emotionally, it may be a sign that you're absorbing negative energies from your surroundings. These energy suckers can be a lot to take in. But, the good news is ... a protective crystal can act as a buffer, helping to shield you from these draining influences.
Sensitivity to Others' Emotions: Do you often find yourself overwhelmed by the emotions of others? Do you often take on others emotions for no reason at all? If you're highly empathetic and easily affected by the energy around you, a protective crystal can assist in creating healthy boundaries and maintaining your emotional balance.
Struggling with Anxiety or Fear: When anxiety, stress, fear or worry take hold, they can hinder our ability to fully enjoy life. Protective crystals offer a sense of grounding and stability, helping to alleviate anxiety and promote a greater sense of calm and courage.
Facing Negative Environments: Whether it's a toxic workplace, a challenging living situation, or an energetically heavy environment, exposure to negativity can impact your overall well-being. Wearing a protective crystal can help shield you from these unfavourable energies and create a more harmonious atmosphere.
Seeking Spiritual Protection: If you're embarking on a spiritual journey, exploring new realms, or engaging in energy work, a protective crystal can serve as a trusted companion. It provides an added layer of protection and enhances your spiritual experiences.

Black Obsidian also encourages personal growth and transformation by bringing hidden issues to the surface for healing.
A popular choice for protection, Black Tourmaline is renowned for its ability to repel and transmute negative energies.

How to use crystals for protection
Wear Them: The easiest way to benefit from protective crystals is to wear them as jewelry or carry them in your pocket or purse. This allows the crystal's energy to be in constant contact with your aura, creating a protective field around you.
Place Them in Your Environment: Position crystals strategically in your home or workspace to create a protective and harmonious atmosphere. Black Obsidian, Black Tourmaline, and Smoky Quartz can be placed near entrances or in areas where negativity tends to accumulate.
Meditate and Visualize: Engage in a meditation practice with your chosen protective crystal. Hold it in your hand, close your eyes, and visualize a protective shield surrounding you. Allow the crystal's energy to infuse your aura, promoting a sense of safety and well-being.
How often do you need to cleanse and charge protective crystals?
Because many protective crystals absorb negative energy, it's very important to cleanse them regularly. This entirely depends on you, and there isn't a set schedule you need to follow. However, you'll likely want to cleanse your protective crystals more than others, to remove any absorbed negative energies. You can do this by placing them under running water, smoke cleansing them with incense or lavender bundles, or placing them on a Selenite Charging Plate.
Recharging your crystals can be done by placing them in sunlight , moonlight, or placing them on the earth for a few hours at time.
In a world full of energy, protective crystals offer a powerful tool to maintain balance, protect our well-being, and promote harmony. Whether you resonate with Black Obsidian, Black Tourmaline, Smoky Quartz, or any other protective crystal, remember to listen to your intuition and choose the crystal that feels right for you. Incorporate these magnificent gems into your daily life, and experience the profound impact they can have on your energetic well-being.
