Crystals for Empaths and Highly Sensitive People

Here are some useful crystals for Empaths and highly sensitive people. Shield yourself from unwanted energies, others emotions and random psychic junk! Strengthen your energetic boundaries and protect yourself!

 

Am I an Empath?

If you’re an Empath or a highly sensitive person you will find that you constantly absorb other people’s energies and emotions. You may have trouble sometimes separating others emotions and thoughts from your own. This leads to confusion, energetic overwhelm and a heavy aura. If you ignore this you will be sending out the wrong signals. You will attract people who like to ‘dump’ their emotional problems, worries and energies onto you.

 

Is Empathy a Curse or a Blessing?

It is not all bad though. Empathy is a trait that can help you to help others. High sensitivity is common in spiritual minded people, psychics and energy healers.What is important is that it does not overwhelm you and that you start to recognise and differentiate external energies from your own.

 

“You can’t switch off empathy but you can take steps to turn it down a notch or two”

 

How to Manage your Empathy

Setting clear energetic, mental and emotional boundaries with people is essential. Use daily psychic protection techniques and carry or wear protective crystals. You will also find cleansing your aura and Chakras every night is a great help too. On a mental level really check in and observe your thoughts and feelings. Ask yourself are these my own? Why am I feeling this way? Should I really feel this way?

    Great article, I have been working with crystals. For a long time.My Favorite, is my Lemurian Starseed Crystal. I also, have a small skull, that has been Charged.By Max the Crystal Skull. I had the opportunity,to see Joanne Parks,and Max. Afew years ago. I had a reading with Max, it was Awesome. I have various crystals, that i work with. But, I also, belive. That daily cleansing of self. And working with a Protective Shield,around you. Is the Best bet. Also, if you are chatting with someone. Face to face. If you feel uncomfortable,Fold your hands,Over your Solar Plexus,and turn abit sideways. This will prevent them, from taking your energy. Most people, are good. But their are Psychic Vampires out there. And they Will Purposedly Suk your energy. Have A Beautiful weekend. My sisters,brothers…. 😉

    Am i an empath? Well i feel everybody’s pain, like it feels almost literally like im experiencing it (emotional pain) …sometimes they are exaggerated situations of my own at some point in my life and sometimes just things that i know must be incredibly awful to experience. I get extremely emotional, crying and all that…but on the other hand i do have some emotional disturbances such as ocd (moderate, worse in the last couple years), it seems alot of the things i obsess about havent even happened to me, but to others rather and i either witness it or hear about it, and then i am worried if i don’t take necessary precautions usually highly ridiculous unnecessary ones, that i too will go through their same careless mistakes, so i wonder how much is just a mental disorder rather than empathic, but my cousin also feels she is empathic, we both feel very strongly about treating animals with love and compassion, largely with cats, but all animals really. …needless to say i feel a little crazy with all this constantly rolling around in my mind. A couple years ago i became intrigued by crystals, and though i have read tons and acquired several crystals that i love , i have yet to start really utilizing them. Yet im so excited to do so caise i just feel they are powerful and will work in my life. I know that since i started becoming interested in them, it was like a light at the end of a tumnel, i dont know how or why, i just feel it is. And most recently have started becoming interested in witchcraft, their doctrines and beliefs resonate very much with me especially the there is no wrong way, its like my own spiritual journey carved out perfectly for me, live and let live, is also super important to me. Accessing my higher self and other energies and dieties, even communicating with my deceased father im very drawn towards…but i am careful not to just believe everything i read, i dont want to be just blindly going a direction that sounds good cause its mystical and magical, i want to feel it, and intrinsically know that its truth without question and without a need for proof, and im kinda there, so now what? cause i feel stuck. I read and read wonderful exciting ideas, i go to metaphysical stores to get things i feel i want or need , taking time to really sense the energies of whatever i am purchasing but when it comes to the action, im frozen. So much going on in my world, including some personal battles. I feel these said personal battles could be halting progress while i feel that i need this progress to conquer these battles. Im all sorts of messed up, but its not a doubt in the process, i feel great and excited to embark on this journey, so what the heck….i did not itend to tell you (whomever you happens to be) all this, it just all flowed out, but maybe after reading it you can sense my turmoil or aura or energy? Can you do that with a non personal communica like email or comments online . …any advice from anyone that reads this is welcome. I realize i didnt really ask too many specific things but if something i said set off a flag, id be very open to hearing your thoughts…thank you so much to anyone who can help. I do have to say it seems im just “stumbling” upon things” that are going to prove useful……..im so ready to learn, i wish there was a way to sonehow come by a mentor, man i would love that…i need that kind of one on one guidance. ..im afraid, ethan you are a bit of a commute to seattle, would make the day a bit long id think….lol….thanks to all in advance…

      Hi Beth,

      Sounds like you are an empath to me but only you can decide. Knowing you are taking on others emotions and energies puts you now in a place of power. Many people will never realise this. I would start with a daily psychic protection practice and stick with it to see if things improve. Then try things like crystals and other steps. It can’t hurt to try these things and you have nothing to lose.

    2. Bett

      To Beth. I get a lot of what you are saying. I feel lucky to be able to put a name to the highly sensitive person I am, thanks to the internet we can do that now.

      I have lots of questions about Empaths, and really need to look further. I always knew I sensed things different from most. The stories handed down about female relatives having dreams that came true and seeing shadows of dead relatives, all seemed like just stories then, I didn’t give them a lot of thought, and still don’t really, I just thought they were unbalanced

      Today I don’t feel that way. It is very difficult for an Empath personality to explain things that pop up for them. Premonition type feelings that have come true etc

      For me personally not having a higher understanding of all of this really has seemed like a curse to me. I have often wished I was blissfully unknowing. I mentally hone in on things that many people just miss and if I try to explain it, I get their vibes coming in as well. I don’t like it

      You mentioned a closer connect to the animal world, same here. I can feel when my dog is not feeling great and I believe my vibes confuse her canine instincts. We are so in tune that she and I seem to be able to know what the other is feeling and wanting all the time.

      Again, I am not sure this is what human beings are really supposed to be doing normally. A few years ago out of nowhere I started sketching and they look like another person did them, I never had artistic talent. That will wax and wane with me but it feels like I am channeling another area of the brain when I am doing a really good job with a sketch. I don’t continue to sketch all the time because it just seems strange to me that I can see shadows and lines in objects I never did before

      I will add this strange part. About 5 months before my sister passed away I bought her a sketch book and pencils because I knew she liked to doodle. I commented to her then that I wish I could draw, because she was drawing a rose.

      Just thought I would comment on your post because sometimes it is hard to know if this personality difference if you can call it that, is not a part of a mental illness. I know exactly what you mean about that

      Bett

    3. Becky

      Beth, it all flowed out perfectly, The personal battles are not halting progress, they are the way of moving forward. So, don’t be upset about having them. You sound very much like me, so here is my humble advice.
      1. Try yoga and or meditation. Purposely slowing down, every day…
      2. The book by Dr. Judith Orloff, “Emotional Freedom” is an amazing book. Stumbling upon things… Get the book from the library and randomly open it and see what happens.
      3. Some stones may be too strong. Keep that in mind. For me, any intuition stone, is way too much. Highly sensitive people don’t need intuition stones, we already have that 🙂

  3. Mi Mo

    To Beth- the beginning of this journey discovering yourself can be very overwhelming. It is a very lonely walk, being this sensitive. I find fire agate useful to give me some extra fuego against other people’s juju. You sound very similar to me a few years ago. Take it slow. Learn about energy healing, how our subtle bodies are affected by energy, how energy follows thought, etc. One thing that helped open my eyes to understanding what makes me so sensitive was getting my natal chart done. The heavens seem to hold the answers to our individual paths. The stars show traits and possibilities. A good astrology book to help you understand your natal chart is Astrology, Karma and Transformation by Stephen Arroyo. It is helping me to figure out patterns in my life and recognize my flaws. It hurts to grow, you have to confront the ugly stuff. It will get clearer and easier if you keep it simple. If you are drawn to crystals, they are safe and loving energy to work with. Use a pendulum, cleanse and charge it first, asking it to be your connection to your higher self, after you cleanse your stones and bless them with the highest energies of good in the universe, hold the pendulum over each one and ask yourself it this is one that will be helpful for you. Get to know your crystals and let them get to know you. You will see the pendulum spin faster or slower, wider or smaller, depending on the energy of each crystal. Stay away from the darker stuff until you can recognize that you are a beautiful crystal and you shine with light. Don’t let anyone take that light away. Be blessed. Be well.

  4. Pattie

    I’m a empath, it took me a long time to realize it. I’m not sure how it is a blessing. Not sure what I should do with it.
    It can be very draining. I enjoyed the information you gave. Thank You

  5. Charlisa

    I imagine a double helix around my body and a rosy-gold light bubble all around me. It really helps if I have energy being thrown at me. Being a massage therapist I have to be careful, as such, I wear a black tourmaline rod around my neck at all times. It helps tremendously. Taking sea salt baths or putting sea salt in the bottom of the shower helps to cleanse away daily stagnation or anything I have not been able to block. Another thing I do if I have a feeling or emotion out of nowhere or because I have heard someone else’s hardship or tragedy, I ask myself one simple, but powerful question, “Is this mine to own?” The answer is usually “No.”, so I tell myself, ” Though this situation may be hard and or sad for this other person, it is not mine to own.” I call this not taking on/owning other people’s stuff.
    I feel animals and become overwhelmed when I hear of or see their mistreatment to the point where I cry and have a really difficult times banishing the thoughts and they keep me awake and affect me deeply. The best thing I can do for that is grab my dogs and love on them.
    My wish is that my words will help at least one person out there! Blessings!

      Hello to everyone who has posted comments relating to empathy, thank u for your honesty and courage in expressing your feelings and experiences.
      I am new to forums and generally just communicating with anybody on the Internet, I purposefuly do not join in social media like Facebook or instagram etc because I can’t handle the gossip from hurtful, spiteful people and generally find small talk just totally and utterly exhausting.
      It nice and relieving to know that there are other people out there who are just like me.
      I feel when bad things are going to happen and sometimes have images in my mind that I just can’t explain to myself let alone anybody else, I feel feelings from absolutely nowhere that sometimes completely takes over to the point where I hide away from people.
      My mind races, I can’t handle any type of stress but at the same time get stressed easily and about anything, things that people close to just can’t and don’t understand. I have no control over my mind or feelings and am totally at the mercy of my moods and other people’s.
      When I was 8 I was knocked of my bike and unconscious for what seemed like 3 mins or so but was long enough that I saw myself and the situation on the ground from far up above the tops of the trees. People may call me crazy but I know what I saw and still remember like it was yesterday and I am 31 now.
      I feel deeply connected to animals so much that if there all of a sudden were not any in the world I honestly think I just couldn’t survive. They give me friendship, loyalty, inspiration and comfort amoungest many other wonderful things. If I see something in the media where animals are mistreated or animals that have died in or at the side of the road it just traumatises me to the point of absolutely breaking down to tears or so angry that I am utterly furious. These images will replay and replay in my mind like a video recording over and over again and before has even taken me weeks to get over it for example- the dogs home in Manchester that had caught fire, it absolutely broke my heart and deeply disturbed me to think what happened to those lovely creatures. I love animals much more than people they never betray you, hurt you or let you down you can always count on them, it doesn’t matter if you’ve brushed your teeth in the morning, they don’t care.
      I feel people’s pain as my own, I cannot go into public places or shopping like normal people, the overwhelming feeling that I get is totally unbearable, I cannot control my mind, or identify or separate my feelings from others.
      I have been through a lot of things in my life and had probably been through more crap by the time I was 13 than most do in their whole life, bad childhood and teenage life, betrayed and hurt by people who are supposed to protect you as child etc etc I could go on forever listing the things that have seriously affected me then 3years ago I was bullied by manager for straight 2 years which caused me to have an emotional breakdown. I am still under primary psychiatric care, taking medication and have a diagnosis of ocpd, cyclothymia and mixed personality disorder. This makes it extremely difficult for me to know which is the illness and which is the empath.
      I have always been highly sensitive and caring about everyone else before myself which also makes me extremely ill but I just don’t know how to be selfish, it’s just not who I am.
      The meds I am on are very strong doses and although they dull the senses, I can still feel them to the point where at times I think that I’m actually going crazy.
      I just don’t know what to do or where to go next and any advice would be much appreciated.
      Thank you for taking the time read this.
      Lots of love to all the nice people in the world, fellow empaths especially and animal Lovers.
      Sarah xxxxxx

        I see nothing but gorgeous beauty in you Sara! Continue Your path in a comforting way, know your limits and apologize for nothing. Thank you for being a voice for the animals and collect the personal rewards, know how special you are. ~Dawn

    I can feel my friends pain ( literally ).. When one has car wreck, a broken arm, or anything that causes pain. I can feel it, and tell you exactly where they are hurting.. here recently I’ve been able to feel the side effects of there meds if they have to take any.. there have also been times where I can see what they see.. My question. Is does that mean I’m an empath, and will the crystals help me tune into and help me control it..

  7. Valerie

    I know this sounds reclusive but a lot of times I just go to a place where I can be alone and collect my thoughts. I get drained when I’m around too many people for too long. I have to be alone to feel refreshed again. Like after work, I make sure to go home and just lock myself in my room for an hour or so (I have
    roommates) because ai can’t just go from one social environment to another. It’s too much. I wear an opal around my neck everyday which is supposed to shield from negative energies. I recharge it by placing it on a slab of Selenite at night when I’m sleeping.

    Anyway.. thats what I’m doing as an Empath (at least I think I’m an Empath bc my mom always has told me, since I was a child, that I’m way too sensitive about stuff. And also I definitely pick up on surrounding energies quickly).

    Thanks for the crystal advice !

    1. Krystal

      As an afterthought i would like to ask; do you know of any other common names for these stones? After much thought i’ve determined the stone most appropriate for me but am struggling to find it under the name it is listed under here…

      1. Ethan Lazzerini Post author

        Hi Krystal, great idea I have added the alternative names for some of these crystals that I know of. Some are not that common stones but a big crystal shop online should have a few. The rarest one is Ouro Verde. If I search on Etsy I can find all these available from crystal sellers. I will consider adding my crystals to this list at some point so there are more options.

  8. Psomaya

    The original information and the comments and their replies are extremely helpful. Thank you everyone.
    P.S. can you please suggest any other crystals that are easily available as these are very difficult to find in India and not genuine

          1. Ethan Lazzerini Post author

            If you mean the free ebook about the Guardian Stones, no it is only about psychic protection. I personally found cleansing and working with my chakras to be the best thing for developing psychic abilities. It is one of the reasons I wrote my first book Crystal Healing for the Chakras which may interest you.

  9. Rosa Teixeira

    For me sometimes it’s so overpowering that I start to cry if that person is in a lot of pain. Over the summer I went to elis island and on the way to the island I had a hard time tears and hurt just started to happen. I couldn’t stop crying. My husband had to take me out of there. I work in the medical field and when someone is ready to cross over my coworkers tell me to go see the person and I can also smell death. Can u tell me what stone would work for me. I love my job but sometimes it drains me to the point I get migraines. It’s hard to explain the feeling that I get to help someone cross over. It’s a relaxing feeling. Please help

    1. Ethan Lazzerini Post author

      Hi Rosa, there really is no one right stone. The purpose of the article is to give people options, all are good for empaths but you will need to choose the crystal that is right for you. If you read what I put about each stone it may help decide or use your intuition. See which one draws you back to it.

  10. Isis

    Not sure if this is an individual reaction or can be of general use, but I find labradorite very useful as a filter when I desire not to be affected by others around me, and fully focus on what I want.

  11. Reiki Lady

    There is a stone, shungite, that is like charcoal for negative energy. It just absorbs it.
    I wear carnelian, ruby and green chlorite together. This is a very old combination to ward off spirits.
    Cleansing the chakras daily is really important, as Ethan says.
    Cutting psychic cords that others have attached is important as well.

    1. Mary

      I wear shungite in a bracelet. It rarely comes off me. Also use labradorite in a pendant that I never take off. Many bracelets I’ve made of various stones and crystal beads. Simple stretch cord beaded bracelets.
      Black tourmaline I wear in a little pouch around my neck.
      I also feel yoga/meditation, chakra balancing and am in classes for energy healing. Life changing stuff for me. ❤️

  12. Theresa

    I find large gatherings a drain on my energies so have started to avoid them. Perhaps using these crystals to assist in protecting me may lessen the energy drain so I can still mix in larger crowds. Thanks for sharing this Pinterest and thanks for comments so far. X

  13. Pauline

    Ive been trying to ask a question about a very large piece of quartz that I bro k e recently. Been in the family for over eighty years and iits been with me for about ten years now. It was in a piece of walnut. It felt over welling and moved it and broke it in many pieces. Feel better but dont know what to do with the the pieces. Ive had the unique piece for so long. Any advice.

  14. Gen

    How can I talk to someone that knows more. I’m trying to figure out what’s happening and what I am HSP or more. I have no clue about it. I was told I am and I’m told my 3yr old son is too

    1. Andie Hendrickson

      Check out Dr. Judith Orloff’s book, The Empath’s Survival Guide. She is a practicing psychiatrist as well as an empath and has some really awesome insights and tips. She also has an online empath support group.

  15. Michelle

    Great stuff! I have many if these crystals, but plan to get more!! Thanks for this Ethan. I would love any info you could give me on this! Newly self dx Empath!!

    dear ethan, thank you for your great blog … discovered it via bairavee balasubramanim and love it. only recently i discovered titanium and aqua aura quartz. i feel very drawn to them, at the same time i find it a bit akward, that they are manmade with an overlay. may i ask your opinion on that? kind regards from austria

    1. Ethan Lazzerini Post author

      Thanks Rea, glad you found me. Aura crystals are a personal thing and I had my reservations when I first saw them over a decade ago. Crystals and precious metals have been combined for thousands of years and both came from the Earth. Their amazing energy speaks for itself. If you’re drawn to them there must be a reason.

      1. Rea

        Thank you Ethan,
        right, i got an aqua aura now for a week and i love to carry it with me …
        and i love your great blog and resources and keep returning to read articles, whenever there is some time … your pictures and arrangements are so amazingly resonating … Thank you again …
