Protecting yourself from Negative Energies – Back to Basics

We have all experienced being around negative people and sometimes negative situations.  This could be job, school, family, or even yourself. Of course avoiding negative situations is best, but that’s not always practical unless you want to be a hermit. Today’s IMG_0972post, I’m going to discuss protecting yourself from external negative energies. It should be no surprise that our favorite way of protecting yourself from negativity is through stones.  And one of my personal favorites is black tourmaline.  And here’s why:

I used to work customer service at a large retail store in a very affluent area, and people are used to getting what they want, when they want.  After a couple of months my supervisor asked me why I didn’t seem to get the really disrespectful or difficult customers at my register.  I laughed and told him I had protective stones in my bra. The look on his face was priceless and needless to say he didn’t quite believe me. After a quick trip to the bathroom I showed him.  Amongst the stones was my trusty black tourmaline crystal.  He thought I was weird, and didn’t quite believe me. Until the day I forgot my stones. I swear I had just about every difficult customer that day.  During a lull, he asked me if I forgot my rocks… and of course I had. Apart from being surprised he noticed, it was just reinforcement of what I already knew, the stones have an effect. This is why we call black tourmaline one of the customer service stones.  It has not failed me!

My top three protective stones are black tourmaline, shungite and hematite. I rarely leave the house without black tourmaline and shungite.   If you don’t wear a bra, you can carry these stones in your pocket, wear in jewelry, stuff in your socks or wear a pouch of stones.

But what if you don’t have stones?

You can surround yourself in a bubble of white light. This can work anywhere, or any time.  Try to find somewhere quite if possible and take a few deep breaths.  Close your eyes and imagine the largest iridescent bubble surrounding you.  Sometimes I envision my self blowing bubbles until I have one big enough to surround me.

I also love black tourmaline for protecting spaces. You can keep in in your cash register (add malachite and citrine for prosperity). I also keep black tourmaline by each of our doors.  It not only helps us shed any negativity that may be clinging to us as we cross the threshold, but anyone else too.  We actually keep shungite, obsidian, black touramline and rose quartz by each door. Keep these stones by your desk and in your car.  Handy if to have extras around in case you forget your personal stones.
