Ok, so to my defence I have had a lot of caffeine this morning so I may just sound even more straight up cooky-dooks than normal. Which if you know me and my Jess-isms it’s just a whole pot of craziness.
Oakey dokey artichokey so I don’t think that this will come as any amount of a surprise to anyone who knows me that my magickal tactics would be that I’m gonna whip my crystals out. Welcome to this week’s spontaneous edition of "Is there a crystal for that?…” yes, yes there is.
Working with the vibes of reflective and protective energy in a magickal defence tactical move:
Personally, today I will be carrying with me Nguni Jasper and Bronzite tumbles.
Nguni Jasper is the stone of protection, repelled negativity and focused energy. It is a powerful little protective stone which helps to protect you from bad vibes and ill intentions. It is a great little buddy to repel all kinds of negative energy and it helps to ward off evil and danger of any kind - physical, emotional, spiritual, Nguni Jasper has got your back. It is great for helping you ground scattered thoughts. Imagine it as like an all-purpose protective shield that can fit in your pocket. It’s a very kind and gentle stone to its person but it packs a punch.
Bronzite is the stone of courtesy, repelled negativity and inspiration. It is basically a little ball of karma and ‘return to sender’ in pretty, shiny crystal form. It’s a great stone to repel a person’s negative energy and send it straight back at them. Imagine it kind of like “thank you very much for that ball of negative goop that you sent my way that I did not need or ask for, plus I don’t actually deserve it. So here, have it back. You’re welcome.”
(Just simile sweetly at someone sending you their negative juju and think to yourself… “b**ch please, I have Bronzite and Nguni in my pocket. You might just wanna check yourself before you wreck yourself. Good luck buttercup").
Ok so I went a - rummaging in my crystal collection for some recommendations for success and protection and I came up with these little lovelies… Ok so above we have a Rainbow Fluorite point, a Tiger’s Eye pillar, a Pyrite and Black Tourmaline rough, an Amethyst cluster, a Green Aventurine worry stone, a Citrine tumble, a Lemon Calcite and Black Obsidian palm stone. There are so many shapes and sizes in our little crystal buddies which means we can work with them in a multitude of ways.
Crystals for success:
Green Aventurine is the stone of creativity, confidence and success. It works with you to help you to succeed in all of your endeavours, no matter how big or small they may be. It encourages you to take decisive action. It helps to bring out your strong leadership qualities. It encourages you to keep on going no matter what obstacles seem to stand in your way. It is the go-to good luck crystal. It is a powerfully positive stone that just seems to attract abundance in many different ways.
Pyrtie is the stone of confidence, success and money. It gives a kick up the pants to your ambition, helping to instil in you a sense of courage, vitality, and persistence to go out and get what whatever it is that you want. It helps to support your strength and stamina. It helps you step into and embrace leadership roles. It helps to boost your self-confidence. It helps your overcome negative and self-sabotaging thoughts and fears. It helps you to overcome all that is holding you back, and to take positive actions to live the life you want.
Citrine is the stone of success and communication. It to helps to ease our anxieties around matters, it brings forth a sudden burst of positivity and promotes a clear, can-do attitude to help you get what you want in life. It’s like a little sprinkling of glitter onto the bad. It is most certainly an energy giver like a little ball of sunshine that pulls your socks up. It helps you to feel the vibe of optimism, which helps you to tap into the powers of manifestation. With this little crystal buddy on your side, anything is possible – and it totally is.
Rainbow Fluorite is the stone of focus, clarity and positivity. It has been known to help boost positive thoughts, clear the mind and increase focus. It sometimes can be known as the “genius stone” as it helps you to utilise your intuitive power to help you in the clear judgement of things. It can help lead to towards your goals, even when there seem to be major obstacles in your way. So it does help you when you are stuck with a problem to calmly face it straight on and makes it easier to intuitively find clues to the solution.
Lemon Calcite is the stone of goals, motivation and confidence. It helps to give you the ‘slap-slap’ to stop procrastinating. It helps to boost your confidence in regards to a situation, kick your motivation in the pants and gives some Red Bull to your determination. It is literally like sucking on a sour lemon lolly to wake yourself up and put some pep in your step. Honestly I love it as I crystal because I need that kick up the backside but sometimes it’s not very nice and I need to go and have a cuddle with some Rose Quartz to make me feel better after working with this sourball.
Amethyst is the stone of calm, patience and manifestation. It can help to set your mind straight. This stone clears out the mess and the junk that we all accumulate. It eases anxious thinking and over-thinking. It helps to put you in a place where you can make good choices that matter. It helps to bring a sense of calm and clarity to times of chaos and uncertainty. It helps you to feel feel comforted, grounded and soothed in an uplifting way. It is a great stone for reminding us not to fear the unknown.
Crystals for Protection:
Black Obsidian is the stone of refection, repelled negativity and emotional growth. It is the volcanic glass rock and it acts as a shield to your emotions against negative energy. It helps to pull you back up onto your feet when you feel like you have been knocked down. It really doesn’t matter if your bad juju is coming from yourself or from external forces, Obsidian will work to throw its cloak of protection over your shoulders, reinsuring that no matter what – you aren’t going to be dragged down into a void of despair. It is a companion stone that truly helps you to feel safe. (My flavour of the month atm… lately I’ve been sleeping with my Obsidian palm stone clutched in my hand and it makes me feel better).
Black Tourmaline is the stone of repelled negative energy, protection and grounding. It helps its person be free of dark feelings, turning our anxious vibrations into more positive thoughts that nurtures the soul. It can help to boost your sense of self-confidence to embrace who you are, speak your truth, and set upon your own unique path to the live your best life. (You do you boo). It works hard to keep bad energy at bay. It helps you to consistently be on your best game and to achieve all that you can. If you tend to feel like at times you can lose your head or feel like the world is falling in on you from very angle, Black Tourmaline can help to transform your potential for staying calm and collected. By cutting through anxious your thoughts, protecting you from the negative energies of others and the environment you’re in, and helping you stay grounded and connected, you can say toodle-loo to detrimental levels of stress and anxiety. When you repel negative energy and welcome positive energy, you also pave the way for good luck to flow towards you.
Just a little bit of both:
Tiger’s Eye is the stone of resilience, strength and willpower. It encourages us to embrace our inner tiger, our inner strength, our personal willpower and determination. It also encourages us to call on the powers of protection. It helps to ward of curses and keep its person safe from ill wishes. It clears negative energy and boots self-confidence. It helps to wash away any toxic energy, clear mental roadblocks. It is a wonderful stone for helping you to realise your deepest dreams and guides you to your visions becoming well and truly in within reach.
There are definitely more crystals out there for success and protection. I’ve only listed a few that I have in my own collection that I could share a picture of, I’ve referenced my collection of crystal books and and I’ve tried to give my own kind of spiel on their vibe and energy.
I have multiple little crystal altars in my room. This one in particular is my grounding and protection sphere collection including Smoky Quartz, Black Tourmaline, Black Obsidian, Clear Quartz and a little Smoky Quartz Cluster with a Selenite pillar which means they are constantly cleansed and charged (which is very handy when you are a very lazy crystal cleanser like myself who can’t be bothered taking all your crystals out under the full moon because there’s just too gosh darn many)
But wait there’s more…. If you like the sounds of one the crystals that I have mentioned above but you don’t have one, can’t find one. No worries. That’s totally cool bananas. If you have a piece of Clear Quartz you can program your Clear Quartz to take on the energy of another crystal. All you have to do is ask it to do so. You can even place a picture or piece of paper with the name of the crystal that you would like your Clear Quartz to mimic. It’s like the chameleon of the crystal world.
