Do you feel other people’s emotions as if they are your own? Well, you might be an empath. This can be a blessing because it helps you understand others easier and you have great empathy. But it can also be a curse because you end up absorbing the negative emotions of others as well. It’s mentally and emotionally draining and if you’re not careful you can wind up completely mentally exhausted! But there are ways to protect your energy.

Your best defence against other people’s negative vibes is to strengthen your emotions, meditate and use crystals every day. Certain crystals can act as a protective shield, blocking any negative energy that comes your way!
I recently teamed up with a very cool shop- Hilltribe. They have unique clothing, aromatherapy, home decor and beautiful crystals! They were kind enough to send me a package full of crystals for empath protection, to try out and explain the benefits with readers. They sent me a calming angelite bracelet, an amethyst polished point pendant necklace, a smoky quartz cluster and some black tourmaline. I couldn’t wait to wear use them.
The owners of Hilltribe were so helpful and knowledgeable when I explained what type of crystals I’m looking for! They ship worldwide! And the shipping was so fast.
How To Pick Your Crystals
It’s best to trust your intuition. Go with whichever crystals you feel draw to, because there’s probably a reason. Or sometimes crystals find their way to you. And it helps to touch the crystals and feel the vibration they give you.
The Best Crystals For Empath Protection
As an empath I was looking for stones that cleanse negative energy, boost intuition and offer protection.
Amethyst. An amethyst is like a spa in a stone. It promotes relaxation, and soothes away your stresses. If you’ve been having trouble sleeping, put an amethyst in your room. It can help clear whatever is blocking your mind and keeping you up at night. It helps promote the sleep you need.
Are you indecisive? Use an amethyst stone to boost intuitive powers and relieve the unnecessary stress we often put on ourselves when making decisions.
Amethyst stones also cleanse your life in all areas, making it a great choice for empaths. Often we don’t even realize what needs to be cleansed. But the amethyst is able to pick up negative energy and remove it. You’ll feel a sense of calmness, confidence and positivity.
Black Tourmaline. The black tourmaline is said to remove radiation. It’s also said to ground energy, clear negative thoughts and promote vitality. This beautiful, dark stone may also boost immunity, treat arthritis and relive pain! What a powerful stone!
Black tourmaline can also help you better understand yourself and others. Tourmaline attracts inspiration, compassion and prosperity.
Angelite. This is one stone I was drawn to from the beginning. It provides a sense of angelic protection, so you never feel alone. It heals anger, stress and tension and promotes forgiveness and healing.
If you have trouble letting go, angelite can help you reach a place of forgiveness so that you can move on. Instead of hiding your pain, angelite helps you heal it!
Smoky Quartz. This is another stone that caught my attention. Don’t choose your crystals and stones by their appearance. If I had done that I would have chosen pink and white, but instead I let my intuition help, along with the helpful owners of Hilltribe. We agreed that I would be benefit from a smoky Quartz cluster. And it’s amazing because it’s said that if a smoky Quartz has found its way into your life, that you are ready to open up to light and positivity! And yes I am!
Smoky Quartz is amazing for empaths because it removes negativity and is very protective and grounding. I can actually feel the protection when I’m holding this cluster! It’s something I can’t explain, other than it’s a feeling of comfort knowing that it actually works. And no wonder, it’s said it offer both physical and psychic protection.
