It is hard enough to live authentically empowered and in your own truth without the negativity of others holding you back. When you start thriving in life, it is almost inevitable that you will get some sort of criticism as jealousy and envy can arise.
You might think no one in your life would want to keep you down. If this is true, count yourself truly blessed. But remember, negativity can come from complete strangers at the grocery store who just don’t like the way you’re beaming radiant light because they are so caught in the dark. Sometimes, even just by being in someone’s energy, even if they never direct any attention towards you, can have an impact on your energetic field.
For this reason, we have compiled a list of the best crystals to use for protection so you can keep your good momentum going, or start clearing away the negativity and propel yourself towards your dream life.
Tourmaline creates a powerful shield against all kinds of negative energy, whether it be psychic attacks, damaging EMFs or negative thought patterns. With it’s incredible grounding ability, it can help reconnect you to your own truth and decipher which influences are originating from you or somewhere outside yourself.
