Why do we need protective crystals?
There are times in all our lives when we need protection. This may be a time you feel stuck in a toxic relationship or work environment or it may be when you feel paralyzed and anxious from the 24 hour news cycle’s endless stream of gloom and doom. Perhaps you may just feel like you are being clouded by negative energy.
Regardless, there can be factors both, internal and external, that we may need protection from. If you are dealing with self-negativity, self-sabotage, toxic relationships, or negativity from others, protections using crystals may help. Crystals, like everything in the Universe, are made of energy. The great thing about crystals is that they are made up of positive energy. Each has different properties that can help us according to our needs.
Crystals can not only be used to protect you from outside sources and negative energies, they may also be able to help you harness the strength to protect yourself and the clarity to know when to walk away. Below is a list of four crystals to help protect you. You can harness the protective energy of these crystals by holding them in your hand during meditation or by wearing or carrying them with you throughout the day

Choosing a protective crystal
While any of these crystals mentioned above can help protect you, there may be other crystals that are more suited to you. Here at Soulminded Wellness we believe that a crystal chooses you and not the other way round. So, if you have a local holistic shop that sells crystals, ask then if you can hold a selection of crystals and you will intuitively know which one is right for you. We love amethyst and tiger’s eye but you may love moonstone or red jasper. Try them out and see how you feel.
