Part of The Protection Series

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.

This Week’s Full Moon Energy

Aquarius Moon…Again

Full Moon in Aquarius with Uranus Retrograde will amp up the energy.
When we look at this whole energy, it is a tug of war of heart and head. Miscommunications may come across if not on the same page.
Those who feel something is “off” in their relationship may be probing for answers and find out that it may backfire. So get all your ducks in a row before you try and communicate what it is you want to know, and both be in a place of calm. Control is the key.

Get Moving, Get Artsy, Get Dirty

Uranus is the ruler to Aquarius, and I think of it like popping candy; bright, loud, popping and crackling, fizzy sensation that is a distracting pleasure. So during this period, you may feel like cooking up a storm, painting, writing, getting your hands dirty, expressing yourself. Put that popping energy into achieving something, and you will not be disappointed. The more you put this built up energy into a goal and have some control over it, the outcomes will be exceptional.


Interestingly, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto are all retrograde. But Uranus brings about the emotion of humanitarian feelings or rebellious inclinations, possessions, and relationships, be it family or a partner.

When Uranus is in retro, with this Full Moon, the energy is high; the power reversed, back into YOU. Questions of how you are participating with all the issues that touch your life with work and personal matters, materialistic ownership on things. You may feel like you are rehashing old problems, and if so, you need to nip it in the bud as to why is this still coming up in your life.

So it would be a time to contemplate within but not take on any emotions that lower your vibrations. That is why grounding is essential, staying calm, working through your issues and also protecting your energy during this time. Release and Balance are needed, and to take those emotions and work with them through meditation. Get a handle on them and see if they are stopping you from moving forward.

Think about this: Love and Fear both Motivate

11 of Water: Emotion/Intellect

Body and Emotions

The card during this time is the Eleven of Water: Emotion/Intellect— Love, Fear, Expression, Suppression, Head, Heart, Ease, and Dis-Ease.

Suppression of your emotions during this period can lead to dis-ease in the body. The organs of the body conform to particular emotions. That then attaches to a dis-ease when there is an imbalance or repression. But it can also be the reverse where the imbalance stems from the organ, so the emotional side surfaces.

So to bring about harmony within, it would start with eating well, rebalancing the body, and dealing with any emotions of a lower vibration for a healthy mindset. For example, Kidney Stones are tiny balls of built-up anger, pissed off and frustration with what is happening in your life.

To help start the road to dealing with that anger, I would eat foods to help with the physical side of things. My favourite is a big bowl of greens; Broccoli, zucchinis, spinach, silverbeet, kale fried with a splash of fish and soy sauce, steamed or flash-fried with a topping of sliced avocado. Secondly, I would also have a head and shoulder massage during that time to relieve the tension built up, warm baths or showers.
Thirdly, meditation in reading my body’s imbalances would be looked at and dealt with, either with myself or another healer.

However, this is not an overnight solution, and you should look at it as a spirit level. The bubble has to be between the two lines to be level. We aim for the same, tapping a little here and a little there to get the alignment. We do the same in finding our adjustment.

Another fact is Uranus rules Aquarius and rules the ankles and calves. So cramps, sprains, breaks, rashes are other issues to keep in the back of your mind.

Lions Gate, New Moon…Va-Va-Voom!

🔮🌑Well this New Moon in ♌️Leo is a bit of a humdinger! Not only is there the Lion’s Gate Portal open, but it’s also on the Lucky day of the 8/8. Eight is a lucky number in Feng Shui as it looks like the infinity symbol (never-ending) and doubles as very auspicious. In Cantonese, eight sounds like prosper. So it’s always associated with success in business and abundance. You will see the mystic eight-knot symbol on a red string or 8 coins with a red ribbon or eight bamboo stalks in a planter. These are very good implements to have around the home or in business, in the right area, you are wishing to strengthen.

🔮The Lions Gate Portal is when the sun in Leo aligns with Sirus (brightest start we see..apart from the sun). It is very momentous and symbolic, as it delivers a strong determination, prowess, creativity, resourcefulness to us. And it is powerful for those who are or experimenting with their psychic powers as it can open the third eye. It is associated with the heart chakra and so this means unconditional love. So an extremely potent and forceful time that can bring about growth. Manifesting is strong at this time, especially through your Heart Chakra.

🔮Also on the cards is Lots of Hard and Heavy Romance…Voof! For those who are in a space that is not quite over the threshold of a relationship, the New Moon may just get you over the finish line. There is lots of confidence-building energy and sassiness if used right. A new hairstyle, a new colour will make you feel brand new if you want some change.

🔮Those in relationships that have had issues of late, there could be a compromise on both parties. Don’t argue or fight for the sake of sex. And be more appreciative about what each of you does and brings to the table. Point out the good things in your relationship. No need to bring attention to the bad. And don’t be hasty with your words if you are triggered. 

🔮Those who are not in lockdown and can still get out and about, let me say this during this buzzing energy of love, lust, and sex: Ladies, If you don’t want to hear the words “MUMMMMMMMM!” screamed at you for the rest of your life🤦🏽‍♀️, or a nasty bout of something you only watch on Embarrassing Bodies – use protection, as very fertile time. Guys, just use protection in any contact of having sex…💉🩺 There is just a big dark cloud over using protection, as if it won’t happen to you.
