All About Negative Energy
(and the best crystals to shield yourself from it)

Negative energy is associated with emotions, thoughts, or vibrations that are considered harmful, draining, or disruptive to one's well-being. We explore how negative energy can manifest and some of the best crystals you can use for protection.

Negative energy can manifest in various forms such as negative emotions, toxic relationships, stress & anxiety, unresolved issues and environmental factors. It can also come from other people such as 'Energy Vampires' - no, they won't suck your blood, but they do feed off the energy of others - often leaving you feeling drained, exhausted, or depleted after interacting with them.

Crystals are believed to have the ability to interact with energy fields and vibrations, making them popular tools for addressing negative energies. Here are some crystals that we think are the best to help with negative energies:

black tourmaline for protection

Black Tourmaline is often used to create an energetic shield around oneself or a space. It is thought to repel and block negative energies, electromagnetic radiation, and psychic attacks, creating a protective barrier.

shungite for protection

Shungite is known for its ability to shield against electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs) emitted by electronic devices by absorbing and neutralising these potentially harmful energies, reducing their impact on the body.

pyrite for protection

Pyrite is thought to have the ability to cleanse and purify energy fields, removing any stagnant or negative energies that may be present. It is believed to promote a positive and uplifting energy environment. boost one's energy and vitality, enhancing feelings of empowerment and self-assurance.

While it is primarily known for its ability to enhance spiritual and energetic qualities, it can also contribute to protection.  When used in combination with other protective crystals, Clear Quartz can enhance their protective properties, creating a more potent shield.

It's important to note that while many people find benefit from working with crystals for negative energy, the effectiveness may vary from person to person. The use of crystals is often combined with intention setting, meditation, and other self-care practices for optimal results. Trust your intuition and personal experience when working with crystals and their protective qualities.
