Energetic Shielding For Empaths

What is an empath?

Empaths feel the emotions of others, often without knowing they are even doing it. They are constantly bombarded by varying emotions from others, from happiness and joy, to sadness and frustration.  Empaths  feel these feelings as if they were their own.  Influences from others in the work place, at home, or in public can affect their mood and outlook.  Empaths often feel the emotions of others so deeply that they can experience anxiety, depression, or epic mood swings.

Negativity

Oh yes, that ugly monster that everyone wants to block and avoid.  And rightfully so!  Negativity from others can be an impairment for those who are striving in their daily lives to be positive, happy, and joyful.  Negativity from others (whether it is directed at us or not) can make us feel…well…crappy.  It’s no fun if you experience this on a day to day basis in the workplace, at school, or even at home.  I don’t tolerate it, plain and simple.  When someone around me is acting out from a place of negativity, I walk away, wish them a blessing, and ignore it.  I have enough of my own  that I don’t need to feel their schtuff too.  That’s not always easy, right?  Good thing I have some crystal helpers for support.

Black Tourmaline and Shungite

I have always used black tourmaline to help “shield” the nasty energy that I sometimes feel from others.  It has made a huge difference in the way that I feel on a day to day basis, because black tourmaline works to change how we process heavy or negative vibrations that come into our energy field.  It helps us to process that energy in a way that doesn’t make us feel so…bad.  Black tourmaline acts like a filter protecting us from energetic “pollution” all around us.

This notion of a filter inspired me to add a little extra ka-pow to my daily black tourmaline.

Shungite is a known water purifier, and as the saying goes “as it is above so it is below”. This means whatever a known physical property of something is, chances are it will have a similar property in metaphysical applications.  Since shungite is a known purifier, I had a hunch it would purify my energetic environment just as well.

A Powerful Duo

A combo of black tourmaline and shungite is like an impenetrable wall of energetic protection.  Those “nasties” will bounce right off.  Here’s how you can start working with them now:

  1. Carry  tumbled stones in your pocket

2. Wear them as jewelry

3. Create a crystal grid for your home if that is where it is needed

If you have tried these out, I would love to hear from you.  Do you have other tried and true methods for energetic protection?  Join the convo…what works for you?

  1. I agree with both stones but Shungite is amazing…when I was first introduced to the stone years ago I sewed a small stone pocket into the front of my bra so I could have a small piece with me as I worked with the public in a small department store. A very sensitive co-worker could not understand how I could serve a particular customer knowing how I pick up on everyone….
    I was confused as to what he was feeling and why I didn’t pick up on what he was describing to me…it dawned on me that the difference was the shungite. This customer had been badly burned and had severe nerve damage which left him in constant pain…he was giving off such strong energy of this… that when I experienced it without the shungite I knew immediately what was wrong…I normally send out a healing non-discript healing energy due to the fact that I don’t know what energy they actually need (or is right and perfect for each individual) as in some cases to heal nerves a grounding energy can be used but if they have nerve damage it can enhance the pain because those nerves can-not be grounded in the normal way…This store closed several years ago and I haven’t seen this man since… but if I knew who or where he was I would give him a piece of shungite to carry !
