Crystals are natural stones that contain energy and healing properties.
They are often used to enhance spiritual growth and emotional well-being, and some even believe they can also be used to attract love or prosperity into your life.
There is a huge variety in the type of crystals that you can purchase, and each one has its own unique set of benefits. The type of crystal you choose depends on your goals.
For example, some crystals are good for meditation or will help you to manifest things into your life, while others are better suited for protection.
If you are interested in all things paranormal and are also intrigued by all the benefits that crystals claim to promise you, then this is the article for you.
Here we’ll look at what types of crystals are out there, how they can protect you from spirits (or help you to communicate with them, depending on your goals), how they work, and which ones are best for different purposes.
We’ll also discuss how you can start using them to move you toward your goals.
Read on to learn more about what crystals you should use to protect from spirits, or open up spiritual lines of communication.
Whether you are a staunch believer in ghosts, or if you haven’t thought about them since reading the Goosebumps books in your childhood, then this article is the one for you.
In addition to its use as the august birthstone (and a decorative gem that is used in jewelry-making), the Peridot crystal has a longstanding history of being used in spiritual and psychic practices.
Peridots are typically considered to be an earth stone. This means that it helps to ground us, soothe our emotions, and connect us to nature. It is said that Peridots are especially useful when working with psychic abilities, as well as helping us to develop intuition.
Its ability to help you balance your emotions can make it a really valuable addition to your collection when in the presence of a spirit, as it can help to keep the energy level.
Many investigators, spiritualists and psychics have reported that ghost activity can dramatically shift the mood and energy in a space, so if you have a Peridot close by, it is very likely that you won’t feel this influence quite so intensely.
Shungite is another stone that has been used for centuries in spiritual and psychic practices around the world. It is said to absorb negative energies, such as those associated with haunting, poltergeists, and other supernatural phenomena.
It can also help to protect you from more general internal strife and negativity, as it protects you from all kinds of bad vibes – not just the paranormal ones.
It is believed that shungite absorbs these negative energies, and then emits a protective shield of positive energy back into the room.
Because of this, it is widely regarded as a great tool for protecting yourself from unwanted haunting. If you think there is negative spiritual energy in your life (such as a creepy feeling you get in one room of your home, or your workplace) then this is the crystal for you.
You can keep your shungite crystal in any room where you feel as though the veil between worlds is thin, or keep it in your pocket to be super careful.
Citrine is often referred to as the ‘psychic’ stone, because it is said to bring out the intuitive side of people who wear it. It is thought to promote self-awareness, and to enhance mental clarity. It is also believed to increase psychic powers, and improve memory and concentration.
Citrine is a yellowish-green variety of quartz, and is said to be able to amplify the effects of other stones. It is also known to assist with emotional healing, and to help you to become aware of your own thoughts and feelings.
Amethyst is another stone that has long been used in spiritual and psychic practice. It is said to aid in meditation, as well as in connecting you to higher consciousness. It is also said that amethyst will help you to overcome fear and anxiety.
Amethyst is a purple variety of quartz, and it is said to be particularly effective at grounding and centering you. It is also said it helps to clear away confusion and poor judgment, and to strengthen your connection to the divine.
Jet is a deep black stone, and is known as a super powerful protector stone, and can help to safeguard you against all kinds of negativities – including bad spiritual interference, and even ‘curses’. It is said to be especially helpful when you are experiencing something traumatic, or when someone else (or ‘something’ else) is trying to harm you.
It is also useful when you need protection from evil forces, and it is said that jet will help you to focus on what is good and right in your life, rather than dwelling on what isn’t.
Furthermore, it is bound to the earth, so can help to remind the user of their place in both reality and time, keeping them with one foot firmly placed in the real world, even if you are involved in spiritual practices.
It strengthens your connection to the world around you – so it can be really useful if you find yourself getting spooked out in your day-to-day life, or think that you have attracted a spiritual attachment.
It can be a particularly helpful stone if you think that it is affecting your dreams. Keep this stone nearby, especially if you are on your own – it works best in times of solitude.
6. Smoky Quartz
Smoky quartz is a gray, speckled variety of quartz, which is said to be very calming, and to help you connect to your intuition and inner wisdom.
It is said to be beneficial for those who want to learn how to communicate with spirit guides. It is a great pick if you would like to have a paranormal experience, whilst still prioritizing tranquility, safety, and inner strength.
When you hold this stone, or keep it close to you, you should feel a sense of calm wash over you – which is helpful when you are investigating a scary location!
Celestite is a crystal that has been linked to Angels, and other spiritual beings. Celestite stones range from the most beautiful shades of deep ocean blues to light baby blues – a very soothing color. This is because blue is the color associated with the third eye, crown, and throat chakras.
Celestite helps us become aware of our surroundings, including the angels who may be present to help protect and guide us. These crystals are also associated with prophecy, divination, and angelic communication.
You can also help to boost your dream recall by using Celestite – helping you tap into your subconscious more profoundly, where the veil between realms is thinner.
Celestite encourages intuitive abilities such as clairvoyance, divination and prophecy, helping to strengthen and manifest these abilities.
Labradorites are crystals of self discovery and psychic abilities. Labradorite is inspiring to those who use it – and helps to uncover abilities that you previously didn’t know that you had, or help you to strengthen and reinforce abilities you already knew about.
Labradorite is an excellent stone to help you understand your spiritual side, by helping you to connect with your higher self, and spirit guides.
You may feel more relaxed and less stressed when wearing this stone – so keep it close in highly stressful, scary environments, such as when you are investigating a haunting.
9. Lapis Lazuli
Lapis Lazuli is a splendid stone for meditation, helping you to connect and communicate with your higher self and spirit guides, so you can utilize any psychic abilities for your own benefit.
It also brings out your inner strength and courage. This stone can help you overcome obstacles and challenges in life. It provides protection and boosts your confidence.
In addition to these general benefits, lapis lazuli also opens up the third eye chakra and allows communication with spirits.
It aids in unlocking the throat chakra and helps develop your intuition further. It is a stone of truth and won’t let you ignore or deny your truth, and can also be really important for achieving past life regressions, and out-of-body experiences.
Understanding your past lives can really help you to understand yourself – in the same way that understanding your heritage and ancestors has an impact on your self concept.
Your past lives can affect how you perceive this world, and your past life traumas can be triggers for you in this lifetime. Use lapis lazuli to help you discover more about yourself.
Hematite helps us to release negative emotions and clear our root chakras. It cleanses our bodies and removes toxins from our systems. It protects us from being disconnected from our spiritual selves.
Hematite absorbs negative energy and wards off negative feelings with its calming vibrations – which (as we have covered already) is really significant in frightening and high-stakes situations, such as a paranormal investigation or personal haunting.
When your chakras are blocked or negatively charged, you can have difficulties when trying to connect with spirits. So, hematite helps to ensure free flow of energy through the body and chakras, which has a subsequent effect on paranormal communication.
In addition to this, Hematite helps you to keep your feet firmly planted in the physical world – helping you to doge demonic infestations, attachments and hauntings.
I hope that I’ve helped you to gain some insight into the different types of stones that you might want to consider using during a paranormal investigation or to protect you from the spirit world.
There’s no right or wrong type of stone, but there are certain ones that will suit your needs better than others. The best thing to do is to try them all out, and see what works best for you!
