Until recently, people had only a vague idea of what an Empath is. And this isn’t surprising as we didn’t have much access to information on being an Empath, their reaction to the environment, or how to become a stronger individual.
However, the past few years have seen a major surge of interest in the topic of Empaths. So, now we know these individuals are highly sensitive to their environment and the people around them. Their aura is constantly struggling by being in contact with others and they’re easily affected by negative energy.
All this can take a toll on Empaths. This is why they need guidance in order to find their inner light and strength and reach their true potential. The best way for Empaths to recharge their batteries is to spend time some time alone and meditate.
If you’re an empathic person, there are also certain external energy sources like gemstones which can make you feel better. These will help you be centered and grounded. They protect the aura and it’s useful to have them on you, wherever you go.
Without further ado, here are the four gemstones recommended by experts. I, personally, have also found them helpful.
Fluorite is a form of fluoride. This popular mineral is made up of calcium fluoride and has a translucent or transparent appearance. Sometimes it can be colorless, but other times it can be blue, green, yellow, purple, pink, or other combination of these colors. This is a powerful crystal to repel negative energies that threaten you. It’s very helpful if you want to set and maintain boundaries in a relationship. And best of all, the energies of this crystal will give you the strength to avoid unnecessary drama.
Hematite is the mineral form of iron. Its appearance is usually completely black, steel-colored or silver. This gemstone is really effective when it comes to protecting your aura. Its balancing energy can help keep Empaths grounded, by streamlining their emotions and soothing their inner turmoil. This helps improve your focus and reach the highest capacity possible.
Black Tourmaline has always been known as a premier talisman of protection, deflecting and dispelling negative energies or forces. In fact, ancient magicians regularly relied upon it to protect themselves from earth demons. This gemstone is a very good protection against psychic attacks and it’s especially helpful if you find yourself in a highly charged situation.
Citrine is highly valued for being protective and regenerative for the environment. It is very empowering for the Empath since it helps protect the aura. Empaths usually “feel” their surroundings and absorb the energy through the solar plexus. And citrine is responsible for protecting this entrance.
If Empaths want to tap into the healing powers of these gemstones, they can either wear them or carry them in bags or pockets. In addition, they can also keep them in a room where the environment is constantly highly charged. If you want to feel the energy flow even when you’re traveling, you can place one on a photo back home. Just don’t forget to have your crystal cleansed. You can do this by soaking them in salt water, smudging them or anything else that suits you.
