5 Powerful Crystals & Stones For Empaths

If you’re an Empath most likely you struggle with how to handle the influx of energies coming your way, simply from doing day to day activities. Empaths are many times greatly affected by the energies of people, places, and things. And we just simply don’t have time to monitor every person and every place we come into contact with. Not to mention, try to anticipate the effects they might have on us beforehand. It’s just not practical…

We have to work, take care of the family, shop, and sometimes we like to do something fun with friends. Once in a while, it would be nice to go to lunch, or go shopping, and not come home feeling:

Drained
Dizzy
Anxious
Irritated
Shakey
Out of Body

Just because there happened to be a lot of anxious, stressed out, or hungry people eating, or shopping, in the same place as we were. Especially when we don’t know who or where those energies might have been coming from. 

Crystals and stones can really help when you are so sensitive to outside energies. Since they offer such a high vibration many times when you find the right stones, they can essentially act as a “buffer” or energetic cleanser for an Empath. Because of this, we’ve created a list of our top 5 crystals and stones for Empaths!

#1 Smokey Quartz

 

 

Properties: Grounding, transmutation of negative energies, manifestation

Chakras: Root (1st)

Spiritual properties: Protective, grounding, offers spiritual protection from radiation.

Smokey Quartz is one of the elite grounding stones. It also helps with grounding and translating spiritual information. It’s a super protection stone because it can absorb and transform unlimited amounts of negativity!

One of our favorite qualities of the Smokey Quartz is it helps offer protection against negative energies.

Who’s it good for? Smokey Quartz is good for those who wish to combat the “physical effects” of negative energy. Such as feeling drained, dizzy, or shakey.\

#2 Jet

Properties: Protection, purification, grounding

Chakras: Root (1st) for grounding, ALL for purification

Spiritual properties: Clears energy field of negative emotional attachments.

 Jet draws upon earth energy to assist in raising ones Shakti. Shakti meaning "Power" or "empowerment," is the primordial cosmic energy and represents the dynamic forces that are thought to move through the entire universe in Hinduism. It’s also a neutralizer of negative energies.

One of our favorite things about Jet is it’s another aura cleanser. It heals leaks in the aura, and clears one’s energetic field of any toxic vibrations.

Who’s it good for? Jet is a really good stone for Empaths who are trying to “strengthen” their energetic field. Keeping a strong energetic field is super important for an Empath.

 
#3 Green Calcite

Chakras: Heart (4th)

Spiritual properties: Helps to connect one with nature, and animal spirits.

Green Calcite calms the etheric body, and clears the heart chakra of stress, as well as other unbalanced energies. It also helps to calm emotions such as anger and irritability which Empaths may pick up energetically from other people.

One of our favorite things about Green Calcite is it aides in connecting with the spirits of plants and animals.

Who’s it good for? Good for those who are interested in animal or pet communication. Also, Empaths who feel a strong connection with animals and/or nature.
 

#4 Amethyst 

Properties: Protection, release of addictions

Chakras: Third Eye (6th), Crown (7th)

Spiritual properties: By stimulating the Crown Chakra, it facilitates one’s connections with Spirit Guides, Angels, and Source.

Amethyst acts as an “energetic shield” offering spiritual protection and purification. It also keeps your physical space clean and clear of negative energies.

It can also be useful for those who are overcoming addictions, by clearing negative or addictive emotional patterns.

What we love about Amethyst is it can clear one’s energy field of negative influences and attachments

Who’s it good for? Any Empath who feels they’ve picked up negative energy from a person, place, or thing.

#5 Hematite

 

Properties: Grounding, aides with spiritual to physical transitions.

Chakras: Root (1st)

Spiritual properties: Helps to bring you into the physical body.

Hematite is one of the most effective when it comes to grounding. It counteracts one feeling dizzy or disconnected because of its ability to manifest the spiritual into the physical. It’s also used to align the Chakras and balance the auric field.

What we love about Hematite is its ability to pull your spiritual body back into the physical body. A common problem among Empaths. Not to mention it’s super easy to find.

Who’s it good for? Anyone and everyone. Especially for those who are sensitive. Hematite is super helpful for Empaths when they feel disconnected, detached, or “out of body”.
