When you hear about crystal healing it's important to realize that crystals alone won’t change your life, but rather they are Earth energy that can help you connect with yourself. They can serve as tools to help you on your path of getting grounded and feeling more connected. They can help you set an intention, and act as a visual reminder that you are trying to think or maintain positive energy levels. With this in mind, you can use crystals for protection against the negative energy that can come from other people, from yourself, and even bad spirits.
When using crystals for protection it is important to consider what it is you want to be protected from because sometimes the person you need to be protected from is yourself, your thoughts, your mind, and how you show up in your life.
