There are so many crystals out there today that can help in taking away negativity and protect you. I have chosen these 15 stones, as they easy to obtain and do an exceedingly good job in protecting you, psychically. Those who wish to go more in-depth with finding different obscure stones or crystals would be better to read Judy Hall’s Crystal Bibles Vol 1-3. Excellent books that will lead you down a road of wonder and maybe a lifestyle of collecting.

With any of your crystals, we place them in areas that benefit and balance. It may be where a high influx of people come through or congregate, areas that have a feeling of negativity, places with high electrical output i.e near computers, TV’s. Or we may want to change the vibe of an area to give it more of a chilled or calming aura for those who use it.

With protection crystals or stones, we have to set the stage for them, so that they work to the best of their abilities.

Wearing them is also great for psychic protection, yet understand that when choosing a stone or crystal, you must take into account how you react to that particular stone or crystal. So a good idea would be to test some out with tumbler stones before buying jewellery.

As an Example:

If I wore Obsidian around my neck and was a stressful day at work, it began to feel heavy and irritable on my skin, so I became irritable. Hematite bracelet would make my arm and wrist ache like crazy and to the point that I couldn’t lift things properly. Tigers Eye would make me want to cry at drop of a hat. So, I had to stop wearing them and place them away from my skin to still do the job, so the reaction wasn’t as intense physically.

Cleansing Your Crystals

Another thing to remember is to cleanse your stones and crystals regularly. Like ourselves, we need to recharge every now and then, so too for our Crystals.

🔮Set in a bowl in sunlight or moonlight for a few hours each month.

🔮Place in the rain water for a time if crystals are not dissolvable type, or spray with rain water and wipe clean

🔮Smudge with smoke

🔮Dust and wipe with clean cloth

So its a bit of trial and error in getting your stones or crystals in good form.

Please Note: Do not drink or spray any water that crystals have been in unless you are 100% sure it is safe to do so. Not all Crystals are Non-Toxic. Malachite being top of my list of toxicity. To know more please click here .https://www.gemsociety.org/article/gemstone-toxicity-table/


Top Protection Stones

Black Tourmaline

Black Tourmaline is one of the strongest protectors against negative energy. Cleanses, purifies and transforms dense energy into lighter vibration. One to use for a full chakra balance and shielding. Keep in room if you have electrical appliances for their radiation output to get restful sleep.


Turquoise is a dynamic stone for protection and also has the ability to heal. It has been known to change depth of colour when there is danger or illness. Not to be placed in bedrooms as it has an excess energy to it that might be better placed in an area you needs that strength. Not while you sleep.

Tigers Eye

Tigers Eye is a grounding and protecting stone. Used in days gone by for those putting the evil eye on you or curses. It was used to hold that ill-will back. Balances your yin-yang

Clear Quartz

Clear Quartz is the stone for saying “No…Enough is Enough!” The Master Healer!
When you put this on or have it around your work area, it helps to stop others from dumping their load on you. Stops becoming a victim of situations and overcoming them.


In times past, Peridot was used to keep at bay evil spirits. Its perfect for releasing the past. Did you know that if you keep thinking about something bad in your past or a person, it will either have them harassing you psychically and physically. Use Peridot to detach yourself from those memories and move on.


Onyx is the stone of giving strength to repel.
It is one of the many stones that draws negativity away and supports on centering your energy. Good to have by Front doors where it will balk some from entering or repel entirely.


Well if you’ve ever watched Game of Thrones, you will know this as “Dragon Stone”.
This stone is Obsidian and it has no boundaries and is limitless. It is a stone that needs to be used carefully or else you will have issues that drive emotions kept well hidden to the surface quickly! So easy does it when using Obsidian!

Lapis Lazuli

Lapis Lazuli is a power stone. Gives you the strength to repel when emotions are running high. As quick as it gives the strength, it also gives you a peace and calm in doing what you have to get done. Immense in its power to stop psychic-attacks.

Jasper is the “Super Nurturer”. It consumes negativity because it wants to bring about peace and calmness. Excellent for Yin/Yang balancing.


Hematite is wonderful for protection.
It will demolish and repel negativity at the same time. Great for grounding and is very Male or Yang influenced. So when you need to have that maleness perk to do a job or take on a situation, this is the stone.


There are many types of Agate and each have a resonating quality; that it brings strength and calmness. It is a stabiliser of energy and brings about a strength and another in the list of balancing.


Amethyst, the “Purple Protector” of the Crystal and Stone worlds! Who can say they don’t like this stone? Its wonderful in its form and colours. One of the best to defend against Psychic-Attacks! Its the Guru of love and light and disperses negativity. Its great for cleansing and healing.
Whaddda Stone! Love It!


The Peace Maker. Carnelian is one stone that some overlook but this little beauty helps in finding trust in yourself and those gut feelings. It helps you overcome fear and guides you to find the strength to move forward with good choices. Protects against gaslighting situations, nagging, and belittling.


Deflector of Negative Energies. The Garnet is so good at its job. Not only will this stone defect that negativity, it will be post marking it with “Return to Sender”. Especially those who like to gossip and say nasty things about you. Keep near a computer, tablet or phone when on social media.

Psychic Attacks: Shielding Strategies For Beginners

Part of The Protection Series

Shielding is one of the easiest methods to do when you require protecting your Energy from psychic attacks and or psychic vampires.


What Am I Shielding From?

A psychic attack is when negative energy via manifestation, physically attaches or attacks you, by a person who intentionally or unintentionally discharges it.

How does a person do this? A person has to build up the malicious negative energy within themselves with thought before unleashing it. They do not have to be near you to do this, they focus in their victim mindset on the person who has set off an emotion.

Mull over this: Thoughts have a specific amount of energy, as does everything. Then Words are up on the next level of the table, followed by Actions above that. But everything starts with the THOUGHT. What you think and how you think it, then putting those thoughts into words and announcing them, to finally acting out on them to becomes the reality. Energy cannot be destroyed but can be diverted or changed into another form, can be wasted and can be drained.

As an example, someone sent me a psychic attack when I was starting to tweak my abilities, and this is what I felt. For me, it’s like being hit by a hockey ball in the face (which happened to me as a teen) – quick, my head went fuzzy, and I am nearly blacking out. Then the dreams began at night, with the pinning down, bad luck with electronics, vehicles, finances, children getting sick; it just became a struggle.

Not everyone will experience the same. It depends on your sender on what they manifest. They may send something to attach for maybe longer interference or a quick attack to put you in your place or to warn you. Mine was long term, and because I was uneducated in the energy connections we have, I lived with it for a time. To help me overcome this, I chose a healer who mixed their Reiki with Indigenous healings to help me remove this attachment and the attacks. It took many sessions but it worked and helped greatly.

And I did not send the woman who sent me the psychic attacks anything back. I learnt that if you send anything malicious like a curse or bad intention, it can rebound tenfold upon the sender. I believe in that and try to curb my frustrations or anger when I am upset. We never went that far in redirecting the energy back towards the woman sending me the gunk she did. I asked that anything not for my greater good be taken away from me by Archangel Michael, knowing it was the strongest way at that time to stop the rot.

A psychic vampire is a type of person who could range from a loved one, a friend or people you work with, who drains you with their energy or drain you by taking your energy. They can leave you dazed and confused, energy weakened, the list goes on. Anything that affects you on a metaphysical level, you seriously need to learn to shield up.

As another example, I had a woman who would not take no for an answer when I said I was busy with my readings (I also worked and have five children and husband to attend to). When she wanted a reading, she wanted it free of charge and liked it at her beck and call. I said no to her and explained that if she wanted me to do another reading, she would have to book and come to the shop where I worked for that reading. Nope, she demanded me to do the reading over phone and at all hours of the night, would phone me drunk saying she needed me to read, but I got to the point that I would not answer. I only met this woman three times before all this and had no social connection with her.

So I would get these drunken messages, abusing me, turning everything of her problems back onto me, making me feel bad, worn out and not sure what to do. I was starting to get that fuzzy feeling again and even though I was shielding, it wasn’t enough and things began to go wrong around the place. Hole in the pool, retaining wall was crumbling, a leak in the bathroom, it was becoming a renovation nightmare and we were not even renovating.

Anyhow, this woman and I actually attended the same mediation group on a Saturday morning. I dreaded seeing her, but then thought NO, she wasn’t making me uncomfortable no more and wasn’t going to make me feel like I was doing something wrong. At this group, she would be nice as pie to my face in front of everyone. But in her eyes, she was raging at me. Just being near her was draining and I could see it was for other ladies and gents int he group. Anyone that would lead an ear, she would pour out her problems.

Anyway, after the mediation, some of us would discuss what we experienced and one older lady came up to me after a session on the quiet and said that I had this dark cord attached to me. She said it was in her meditation, and it came from our lady friend who complained all the time. I told her what was happening. After class, she did this beautiful healing on me to detach the connection. Afterwards, I felt lighter and brighter. The woman hassling me stopped calling, stopped coming to class, and I never heard from her again. My healer friend told me to learn to shield proper against people like this. So since then I have been learning as much as possible in doing just that.


How To Make A Shield

Visualisation is Key

A positive way is to make a shield is through visualisation. You visualise yourself filled with white light from the top of your head down to your toes. When your whole being is white light, you can start making a shield from that Energy. Any way you want to design it is up to you. When you have finished, you place love into that shield so that negative Energy cannot penetrate.
The other is imagining you are in an impenetrable bubble. Again, filling yourself with white light and using it to make that bubble filled with love. The stronger you visualise, the stronger the shield. So it will take practice. Any shield you feel comfortable with, remember you are putting into it positive intention so that no negative energy will attach or connect to you.


When To Use

Use whenever you have to be around people, even use before bed if you think you are having someone sending you negativity. The more you use, the more you will see that the people may have been using you as a dumping or accessible energy point. Those who have been doing this will start to change their attitude towards you. You may even notice people stopping all contact, which in itself was no significant loss.


Scanning Yourself

I now scan myself after meeting people, even though I have my shield up, because some days you can feel a bit lazy in doing things. Plus, some people have very strong energy that may bring about denting your energy. How I do this is by standing still for a moment and getting a feel of if there is something not right inside and out of me. Fix and Heal as best as possible until I return home. If I want something a bit deeper, I visualise a scanner going over me from top to toe and finding where there are areas I need to fix and heal. You can do whatever you feel comfortable with.

Another powerful way to protect yourself is Prayer.

Used in conjunction with meditation, your shield, you will find this to be extremely potent. Whether you have been bought up with religion or not, it does not matter. Whomever you believe in, your prayers said in a positive manner will bring in protection.

May I release all energies that are less than love
Help free me of all that no longer serves me
I return all energies that are not mine with love
Any cords or connections that are not for my greatest good
I release and disconnect.
I ask for the protection from the Light and love of the Universe
As Above So Below
So, Mote, it Be


Two Quick Ways to Spiritually Cleanse

Part of the Protection Series



In all this, the practice of meditation is very beneficial for the mind, body and soul. In the bath you could do a light meditation, one that you can do yourself to remove and clear away gunk accumulated through the day or the week. In the shower you can do meditation of where the water is “white light” cleanser cascading over you and through you, aligning your chakras, transforming your outer bodies.

Meditation is about silencing the mind, quietening the chatter. Like with anything, the more you practice, the more you will become proficient. With meditation, it is the connection to the source to help heal and protect is what you are aiming for. It is also the awakening of your openness with the source via love. Love and Above, baby! Love and Above!

Starting with a guided meditation is a helpful first-step for most people. So start with short meditations and try and listen as best as you can to quieten your mind. Then build up to longer meditations, more structured to what you are aiming for in your life. I have had many people say to me that they fall asleep, but this is ok, you just need to persevere. One way is sitting up in a quiet area. There is no use trying to do a meditation if you have kids banging on the door, pets trying to get your attention, phones ringing. So make time when you can control the situations, turn phones off, and make a comfortable area for yourself.

Meditation for protection is also a great tool. The way I use meditation is to get to my connection point in my mind, then use it as viewing portal of myself to see what I need cleansing. It’s like remote viewing in which I can pick up on anything that should not be in or around me and remove it. It is such an effective method, especially for psychic attacks and energy vampires. I have been using this method for over twenty years and for others as well.


After cleansing, the next best thing I find is to do smudge with cleansing herbs.

  • White Sage
  • Lavender
  • Rosemary
  • Palo Santo “Holy Wood”

There are a number of other herbs you can purchase online for smudges, but these are what are handy for myself and have used for years. I am sure many of you have used a smudged and know that when using, have a bowl with you to catch any lit bits that can sometimes fall off. We never smudge near curtains or flammable items in the home or on your persons with flammable items of clothing or hairspray in their hair. So Use with Care.

Remember, it is the smoke you need to swirl around yourself so to release negativity and to cleanse. How long you do it, is up to you and I find it best to say a prayer a few times as I smudge. Below is a prayer you could say, or you could make up one for your personal needs.

Smudge Prayer

Into this smoke,

I release all energies that no longer serve me

All negativity that surrounds me

And all fears that limits me

As Above, So Below

So Mote it Be
