4 Crystals for “Protection”

Hibiscus Moon amethyst, Crystal Healing, Crystals, energy work, meditation, science 68 Comments


I often get some version of the following question in emails, PM’s, etc. Since I don’t have the time to individually answer these emails, I thought my blog was a great way to get the info out there. So here’s the basic question:

“I’m completely new to crystals. Which crystals would be good for protection, warding off negative energies, etc.”

OK. Firstly, I don’t buy into the whole “negative energies” thing…most of the time.

I feel energy is neutral.

It’s our perception of the energy that gives it a positive or negative feeling or meaning to us. Meaning, there may be  negative feelings within you that are resonating with the frequencies of the energy that you’re experiencing & therefore, it makes that experience feel “bad” to you. If your feelings are high amplitude enough (meaning lots of energy) then it may even attract those frequencies that feel yucky & AMPLIFY them. That will feel bad!

We are beings of energy & we’re affected by energy.

We’re made of trillions of cells transmitting & receiving energy all the time. Its so COOL to think of this!!!!

Dr. Bruce Lipton actually says that our very cell membranes are liquid crystal semiconductors (silica…QUARTZ, BABY!!) with gates & channels that open & close, letting some stuffs in & keeping some stuffs out. He says that our DNA actually  scans our environment for relevant frequencies & then reshapes itself accordingly. (We can see this happening under the microscope).

See where I’m going with this, My Sweets?

The right crystal will adjust your cell’s perception filters & transmute energy for you! Waaaahooo!

So we have total control over this & can use crystals as a tool & support to help us along. You can also do this without crystals, but if you’d like the extra assit, there are a  couple that I like to use.

Certain crystals can neutralize & transmute the energetic frequencies so they don’t carry specific frequencies that may resonate with those bad feelings. Here are a few of my fav’s:

1. Black tourmaline is known for its ability to transmute & “cleanse” energy:

black tourmaline crystals for protection

2. Smokey quartz is also THE BOMB for this:

3. OR my favorite combo for this black tourmaline & smokey quartz:

smokey quartz black tourmaline

4. And then there’s GORGEOUS amethyst:

One thing you can do is meditate with any of these crystals. Even just spending 5 min. in meditation with them…this will help transmute energy entering your EMF.
You can also create A “protective” transmuting  “shield” around your home, placing crystals in specific locations; 1 near front door, 1 near back door, etc.
Or you place crystals at THE corners of YOUR house or property creating an outdoor grid for your home:

In this video I detail how to do a Protective Home Grid:

So I hope that answers  few questions & empowers you to just switch that energy up!

Crystal Sparkles to you!!

  1. I completely agree with you when it comes to “negative” energy. I’m an air sign and find myself bogged down with too much energy, which makes me feel negative and snippy. I love using amethyst and smoked quartz for that. Great post!

  2. Synchronous combination of crystals! And serendipitous post on topics and such, I hope you do, I mean I’m sure you dig synchronicity, and my journal is chockful of random entries some dated some not of musings, and interests in moon astrology. And have you read Jan Spiller’s awesome keen and solid astrology books including on moon astrology and Astrology for the Soul? Do crystals make friends or do some need to be separated when stored? i like to think the former. Oh previous post!

  3. Hi, I just wanted to add another semi-precious stone to the list of protective crystals/stones, and that is ” Labradorite”. Time and time again, this crystal has helped to protect me, physically and especially spiritually from detrimental external influences, it can block other people’s projections and even removes energies that mess with one’s aura. It also protects against psychic drain (or the psychic vampire, so to speak,people who, oftentimes, themselves unaware of the effect they have on you) – it also has helped me with intuition, and perception. Sometimes it can even help you deal with suppressed issues, in a gentle way. Some forms of this stone are called”Bytownite”, which is yellowish, “Violet Hypersthene” which is violet hued of course, and of course the blue/green/brown variety called “Spectrolite”, my favorite. Each of these forms are protective, bytownite also helps withexpanding consciousness, becoming a strong, independent person, and with this kind of stone, you are able to access the highest levels of consciousness. Hypersthene is good for transmuting emotional toxicity within, and facing your worst fears with confidence, Spectrolite protects the soul no matter where it journeys. All three varieties of labradorite are all around highly protective and uplifting, I think it’s qualities are often overlooked, but definitely work well. It’s worth checking them out to see if you are drawn to them.

    1. Yes, Labradorite is my go to for protection too. I also find it my stone for inspiration. Plus it’s beautiful and has the word Labrador in it 🙂

    1. hi hope this reaches you. firstly thank you I was learning about protection you have helped me so much I received a beautiful rose quartz also today it was beautiful my crystals are cheap but ther mine I also received a book on crystals ive needed help for yrs anyway back to you I see your destiny , congrats as I received your e kitdestiny driving lessons for independence ps love your recipies crystal hottie.

  4. Love the info and website. I was hoping to ask a question.
    Which crystals are best to open the third eye and the sacral chakras?
    Thanks Les

  5. So I was wondering, how about dropping my amethyst in my diffuser water along w some sage oil? would that work well? That way no smokey smell to annoy my clients. 🙂

  6. Please put me on our mailing list ,also I would like to get a pack of four crstals that can remove negative energy .Thanks Bill

  7. Thanks so much! I think the only thing that would make the post better is a little description under every crystal about it’s specific properties and uses. I mean, I can totally google it – but just some friendly advice!

  9. I think that is among the most significant information for me.
    And i’m glad studying your article. However should commentary on some
    general issues, The site taste is wonderful, the articles is really nice : D.

    Excellent activity, cheers

  10. I just recently was on a radio show talking about this very thing. I felt I did not have enough Great info as I would of love to have. I was asked a lot of questions that were past my own knowledge of use (as I only use some in my spiritual work) I have been following you for quit some time and find you really know your stuff expertly (which I love about you). I have also recommended you to many that want to get into serious crystal knowledge. My question is, Are you interested in may-be being on this show one day? If so please send me an e-mail and I will fill you in more. So many are using crystals and have no knowledge of what you can offer them. I just felt it may be of some help in many ways. Blessings ^I^

  12. Hi, I’m a new member but have been drawn to crystals since I was 6 or 7. I have quite a few small polished stones all different colors, and 2 clear quarts pointed ones and s few amethyst clusters and my fav. Rose quarts small pieces. I have no idea what all the other small ones are even though I have an illustrated book. I was wondering if there’s a website or anything that I can take a picture of a crystal and it will ID it for me. I’ve got about 100 unidentifiable stones for me at least. Also does quarts look different when you get it out of the ground? I keep picking up small crystalline white rocks but there not as clear as the ones I know are quarts. There more white. Idk thanks for any information you might have for me. Namaste

  13. Hello

    Thank you for ALL your amazing blogs and videos… totally awesome!
    Quick qu…
    I have 5 neighbours and therefore would require a 5 pointed grid for protection of property… you spoke of 3 and 4… I just wanted to ask about my specific situation.

  14. Para transmutar energías negativas seria perfecto tengo turmalina en los cuartos pero que sugiere para llevar en mi persona casi siempre ando más afuera la combinación de cuarzo y turmalina en dije ?

  15. We have .8 acre, a lot that is 300 x 150 feet, very rural. Would it be better just to do the house area? We would like to evict the groundhog that is digging up our outbuilding, and too many feral cats. How big would I have to go?

  16. I want to know where we can buy the crystals and quartz? They are hard to find in Utah where I live. And when you do we get charged an outrageous price for them. I want to buy them for a fair price. Is there a catalog or web site. Also would like to know what your thoughts are on the yoni crystals?

    Love your stuff and look forward to learning more.


  17. You can buy crystals on line or at your local spiritual shop. I like to buy buy my stones at a local spiritual shop for I can connect with them then and there.

  18. When you wear an amethyst or rose quartz pendant below your throat chakra and higher than your heart chakra, you will create a barrier to all negative energy (people with or sending negative, angry thoughts & looks).

    Amethyst destroys the negative energy as soon as it touches your aura in an explosive type of way and some of that negative energy can “splash” back and hit others. Rose Quartz will gently transmute any negative energy into positive energy which will fall to the ground as soon at it comes in contact with your aura.

  19. Loved the article. I used to collect crystals and use them as a kid when I was first learning about my abilities but over the years the places where I was getting them became further from me and I stopped collecting and using them. I’m just getting back into implementing them in my daily routine as I now work from the home as a psychic medium, finally using my abilities. You came highly recommended by a friend and do not disappoint. I’m seeing familiar stones and properties and learning new ones daily. Thanks so much for this article.

  20. I cleanse my crystals in running water (tap water). I live in an appartment and this is the best way available to me…

  21. I just got an amazing black tourmaline at my local gem show. I am lucky, I live in Arizona, and gem shows are everywhere here. Of course the Tuscon show, and Quartzite show and almost every smaller town has a gem show,Prescott, Flagstaff and Cottonwood are the shows that I ‘ve been too. Look up your local
    Community lapidary clubs. Good seeking! Love and light to all.

  22. See my recent post. I personally like to pick out the stone that speaks to me. I am fortunate enough to have the opportunity to do so. If you cannot you can order them on line and make the crystal your own by keeping it near you for 40 days.

  23. I know you said that you don’t believe in negative energy, but what would make you think there is? We have had nothing but one thing go wrong after another in December 31, 2014. We went home to TX to visit family and on that day my son got sick with the full blown flu. Things just kept going wrong after that. This summer alone from from the beginning of June till the end of July we had a micro burst storm hit our house and cause over $10,000 in damage. my son got bit by something that caused swelling, blistering, hives, and infection, which he’s still healing from. I fell off my husbands truck and messed up my ankle, knee, hip, and lower abs. Then the truck broke and is $5000 to fix. That’s just the major things. There’s more thatvinwont list. I don’t know what to do! I want to cleanse my house, but I’m worried that I won’t do it right or that it won’t be enough!

  24. Hi. I have to agree. I love positive, cheery words. But, and unfortunately, there is a but, I don’t like being spoken to like I’m 15: been there, done that. There has to be a happy medium. It could be the difference of my hanging around. I’m not a ‘grinch’, but I’m not a child either. This is a very informative website and a very knowledgeable woman. It stinks to be ruined by the vernacular. Thanks for listening.

  25. I’m new to crystals and healing power, etc. I live in Tennessee…. Rural area. Hard to find metaphysical shops close. Want to invest in some crystals. I’ve been online looking… So many different prices and where they come from… Ugh, just do not want to get ripped off. Love your site. Love what I’ve read and videos. Needing some help, thank you for your info hibiscusmoon!!! Namaste

  26. I’m a 20 year old woman currently living together with my partner and 2 cats. My whole life my father has always had bad luck, and that’s how everyone knows him as. However since the age of 13/14 It seems I’ve taken on this bad luck as EVERYTHING goes wrong. To give you a good example of the past 8 weeks:

    *We bought a car (3400euro) -it broke- we fixed it (1000 euro) -it exploded (loss: 5k euro)

    *We moved into a new rental home-ex of owner terrorized us- the police updated us the home was being rental illegal- we had to move (loss: 3k euro)

    *Even though our blown up car was insured- the insurance found a way to not have to pay (loss: 9k euro)

    *we rented a van to pick up some large furniture from old house-the crazy ex changed the locks

    *We rented a car-car broke down-1500 deposit was taken of our visa card and never payed back

    *I went on holiday to visit my family- suitcase lost and broken

    *Today my partner became unwell and he is now in hospital.

    These are just the LARGE events, then im not even talking about the daily/weekly problems of bad luck that happen.

    SOMEONE please HELP. The bad luck only gets worse.

  27. It kinda stinks that something this minor would throw you off. Perhaps you could bring yourself to realize that this vernacular is Hibiscus Moon’s way of showing her playful personality. Didn’t she say something in the article about negative feelings within YOU that resonate with other energies being the cause of your perception of negativity? It’s been a very long time since I was 15, but I love being called a Crystal Hottie. Relax, and allow more sparkle into your life. It’s fun!

  28. Bad dreams are sometimes good! There are reasons for bad dreams: medication side effects, hormone issues, stress, chemical I’m balances etc. The best type of bad dream is the kind that come along when you are doing your best inner work. Each time you move up on the spiritual ladder towards your Higher Self, you may encounter energy systems that animate and take on form and play out bad roles in your dreams. Realize these are old systems that are now exposed and you do not need them buried in your Consciousness! Once exposed they will disappear because they no longer serve a purpose. Program yourself each night to be protected but also to learn from these things. Everything is a self-reflected learning opportunity! Use the dreams to overcome fears and road blocks on the Way – up! 🙂

  29. Where is the best place to buy these crystals and what size should I buy?

    I love reading your articles, they are so inspiring.

  30. Thank you for your videos and insights about crystals, I love learning these things…my question is about my neighbors stealing my crystals when I put them outside (on my property) which is interesting because my intention is around protection, boundries or peace (from the neighbours) so I feel disheartened like “nothing works” (I even try hiding them in pot plants) is there anything you would suggest for protection crystals being stolen?

  31. Chariss, keep them inside. Here in the country I have raccoons who steal things… it doesn’t matter who it is, losing our crystals hurts. Better to keep them inside and safe I believe. Just my opinion…

  32. Thank you so much for this info, I am just beginning to “get into” the whole “energy thing” but I strongly agree with what Im finding and you offer some great advice and guidance! I hope to be a better focused, grounded person soon.

  33. At the tender age of 68, my journey into the world of crystals has only just begun. I’m so glad that I found your website! The information I’m gleaning from your posts is helping me understand the value of crystals and I appreciate each insight that I gain from you. I look forward to each and every one of your videos. You are a great point of light that I am so happy to have in my existence! Thank you so much!!! Namaste!
