Selenite to Remove Unwanted Energy
Selenite is a lovely, luminous crystal that every energy healer has in their collection. This stone is known for having high vibrations and the ability to banish negative energy. This crystal helps with decision-making, brings clarity, focus, and honesty with your confused thoughts. It works by clearing all blockages and uplifts with positive energy to cleanse and restore.
Selenite is simply a must-have if you want to cleanse any energy field; whether it's a physical space or your own aura. In addition, it serves as a charging bowl for all your crystals.
Black Tourmaline for Protection
Black tourmaline is a powerful protective stone used to dispel and ward off negativity. Think of this mysterious black gem as a barrier that wards off bad vibes. Cleanse your space with a purifying stone like selenite, then place black tourmaline by your front door to keep negative energy where it belongs: far away from your home.
Clear Quartz for Power
Clear quartz is an essential healing crystal with pure, high vibrations. You can use it to cleanse away clutter or to amplify the power of other crystals. Clear quartz acts like a megaphone that boosts the energy of other crystals, helping their message sing louder to body, mind, and spirit. Use it alone to gain clarity or pair it with another crystal for a power boost.
Rose Quartz for Love
Replace negative energy with positive energy using rose quartz, the crystal of unconditional love. Rose quartz is a beautiful stone that can promote feelings of self-love, release emotional blockages, and attract romantic love.
Amethyst for Serenity
Crystal healers often use amethyst, a stone strongly associated with the crown chakra, to release negative energy in the mind. This soft purple crystal is thought to ease negative thoughts, promote serenity, and help you reconnect to your intuition. If you want to wash away low vibe metal energy, which tends to manifest as things like cynicism or closed mindedness, amethyst is the crystal for you.
Fuchsite for Heart Healing
Fuchsite is known for its heart healing energy and cheerful sparkle. If you’re carrying negative energy due to a matter of the heart, fuchsite can be an excellent self-care tool. Crystal healers recommend meditating with fuchsite to fuel recovery and promote a sense of renewal.
Kyanite for Peace
Kyanite is a captivating blue crystal that’s used to promote peace and provide protection in energy-draining situations. It’s also a rare crystal that doesn’t collect energy, which means it never needs to be cleansed. This stone is beautiful, peaceful, and low-maintenance–what’s not to love?
Blue Calcite for Harmony
Blue calcite is known for its strong healing powers and high vibrations. It can be very powerful for soothing the mind and body, and promoting an overall sense of well-being. It’s a favorite among crystal healers for calming nervous energy and restoring balance.
Pyrite for Tech Detox
While it's best known for its luck-attracting properties, pyrite is also a wonderful crystal for those who need to detox from tech or social media. Pyrite is thought to help shield against negative energy from technology and boost willpower. If you’ve been feeling rough after too much time scrolling your feed (we’ve all been there), pyrite could help dampen the allure of your phone and strengthen your resolve to take a much-needed break.
Citrine for Joy
Flood your energy space with joy using citrine, the sunny crystal with a strong connection to the solar plexus chakra. This pretty golden crystal is thought to help clear out the solar plexus and sacral chakras, and strongly attract positive energy.
Aquamarine for Emotional Healing
Aquamarine is considered one of the best crystals for cleansing the spirit after emotional hardship. Thought to have a similar healing energy to saltwater, this gemstone is associated with calmness and balance. Use this to cleanse your own spirit or give it to a loved one who is experiencing a loss.
Sodalite for Self-Trust
Sodalite is a balancing stone associated with the third eye chakra, your center of perception. This crystal is helpful for boosting self trust and promoting emotional balance. It can also be excellent for ridding your mind and body from the toxic energy caused by fear or guilt.
