What crystals are best to get rid of bad energy?

Written by Wishpond


Is it time to let go of negative thoughts?

Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed with all the negativity in the world? It seems to be everywhere. From overbearing bosses to lethargic coworkers, nagging in-laws to rude young hooligans, where does it end? 

Even strangers in the streets are full of road rage. Perhaps you have your own angry outbursts to contend with. We have been conditioned to negative thought patterns from a young age. Born with the instinct to survive, we are naturally skeptical and cautious of the unknown.

In school, we are taught to be competitive and fear failure. People are pit against each other, and this breeds a society riddled with negative behavior. In fact, it is so ingrained into the psyche that we are usually unaware of our own negativity.

Evade energy vampires, naysayers, and bad influences by utilizing the power of protective crystals. Shedding destructive people and unwanted thoughts helps you focus on the positive things you can do and achieve in your life. 

What crystals are for protecting against negative energy?

Crystals against bad energy

You need protection from all kinds of negative energies. Negativity seems to be all around: in your own doubts and dark thoughts, external dangers, violence, foul neighbors, the list goes on and on.

Protection crystals exist to help you escape these exact problems and situations. Let your inner light shine bright when you keep away the dark forces with healing stones.

Most black and brown stones are effective in providing a grounding, protected energy. However, protection stones of other colors also have their powers.
