Their unique healing and energetic properties can increase our spiritual protection, especially if we incorporate them into our daily practice.

Our favorite spiritual protection crystals include: Black Tourmaline: Known for its powerful protective properties, Black Tourmaline acts as a energetic shield that deflects all kinds of harmful energies. This spiritual protection stone creates a protective barrier, helping to maintain a sense of energetic balance and grounding. It is particularly effective at absorbing and transmuting lower vibrational energies like envy or anger, promoting a sense of calm, clarity and protection. Amethyst - Amethyst is one of our favorite crystals for spiritual protection because it helps purify the aura and transforms negative energy into positive, loving vibrations. It also increases spiritual awareness and intuition, facilitating a deeper connection to higher realms and divine guidance. Smoky Quartz - Another effective spiritual protection crystal is Smoky Quartz, mostly due to its grounding qualities. This spiritual protection stone absorbs and transmutes negative energies and negative thought patterns, releases emotional blockages, and dispels feelings of fear and anxiety. Plus, it brings a sense of stability, grounding, and resilience, allowing us to face challenging situations with greater strength and clarity. Remember to choose and work with crystals that resonate with your personally and to use them with intention and respect. Regular cleansing and recharging of the crystals is recommended to maintain their energetic properties and effectiveness. Spiritual Protection Methods Visualize a Shield Around You Visualizing a shield around us is a powerful spiritual protection technique that can help create an energetic barrier against negative influences. Kids pretend to be superheroes all the time, which probably has the same effect! Just like a kid, you can imagine this shield in any form that resonates with you. For example, you can try: A bubble of light A suit of armor An impenetrable brilliant, luminous force field surrounding your entire being Visualize this shield as impenetrable and radiant with divine light. See how it repels all negativity and lower vibrations, allowing only love and positivity to enter. Practice this visualization regularly to strengthen your spiritual protection and reinforce your energetic boundaries. Also, adapt the visualization to your own intuition and preferences. Play with your imagination! It can be more powerful and tangible than you think. Sage Your Home Saging your home is a time-honored spiritual protection technique, even though nowadays people often use it just to get rid of the smell of food left after cooking. This practice requires us to burn or smudge dried sage leaves as a way to cleanse and purify the energy in our living space. Burn a bundle of dried sage and allow the smoke to permeate every corner of your home, focusing on areas that may feel heavy or stagnant. As the smoke wafts through the room, visualize it clearing away unwanted energy and purifying the atmosphere. This spiritual protection practice not only shields the home and deflects negative vibes; it also creates a sacred environment for your intuition to grow. Repeat the process as often as needed or whenever you feel that the energy in your home could benefit from cleansing and purification. Smudge Sticks for Spiritual Protection Use Spiritual Protection Symbols Sacred geometric symbols are ancient patterns and forms that hold deep spiritual significance. They have been used for centuries as powerful spiritual protection tools because they can channel the energy of the Divine realm. Some commonly recognized sacred geometric symbols are the Sri Yantra, Flower of Life, Seed of Life, and Metatron's Cube. Working with these spiritual protective symbols through meditation, visualization, drawing, or wearing them, incorporating them into sacred spaces or rituals, and using them as tools for contemplation and spiritual connection can give you a sense of grounding and peace like you've never experienced before. Incorporate these spiritual protective symbols into your meditation practice or place them strategically in your living space. Remember, it is better to choose symbols that resonate with us and incorporate them into our spiritual practices with reverence and mindfulness. Explore different methods and find what works best for you as you harness the inherent energies of these symbols for your spiritual protection and well-being. Ask for Protection From Your Angels & Guides You are not alone in your spiritual journey. When feeling insecure, call upon your angels, spirit guides, and higher beings of light for protection and guidance. Through prayer, meditation, or simply speaking from the heart, ask for their help in protecting your energy and guiding you on your path. Trust that their loving presence and guidance will assist you in your spiritual protection efforts. Meditate on the Energy of Love Love is a powerful force that can transform and protect against negative energies. A great way to ensure spiritual protection from the higher self is by engaging in meditation practices that focus on cultivating love and compassion. To do this, follow these steps: Affirm that you are open to the unconditional love that exists within and around you. Visualize yourself surrounded by a radiant sphere of pure love and light. Focus your attention on your heart center, which is located in the center of your chest. Visualize a gentle, warm light shining in that area. Feel the warmth and power of this energy as it fills your entire being, dissolving all negativity and offering spiritual protection. Finally, allow the energy of love to guide your actions and interactions, spreading its protective power throughout your life and the world around you. spiritual protection crystal Cut Your Energy Cords Energy cords refer to the energetic attachments that can drain our energy and interfere with our spiritual well-being. It's important to cut energy cords to release energetic attachments and maintain healthy boundaries in your spiritual life. Here are some steps to help you achieve this: Try to visualize energetic cords that connect you to people, situations, or past experiences. These cords may appear as actual strings, threads, or energetic bonds of various colors and thicknesses. With intention and love, see these cords being cut, allowing you to reclaim your energy and create healthy boundaries. After cutting all the cords, visualize yourself surrounded by a vibrant, protective shield of light. See how this shield repels any negative energies or attachments, ensuring your continued spiritual protection. Releasing these cords will support your spiritual protection and allow you to move forward with greater clarity and freedom. Final Thoughts Cultivating spiritual protection is critical to maintaining balance, harmony, and fulfillment in every aspect of our lives. Incorporating the techniques mentioned above into your lives can help us create a powerful shield of positivity that will make our spiritual experience more meaningful. But there is a catch here. These techniques don't work by themselves. While they can support our journey, it is our intention, dedication, and belief in their effectiveness that will truly enhance our spiritual protection. Once you make these practices part of your daily life, you'll be good to go and can embark on a deeper path of spiritual empowerment. Then, you can move forward, knowing that you are supported, guided, and protected every step of the way.

Energy Medicine is based upon the pseudo-scientific premise that the human body encompasses an energetic “life force” and energy centers (chakras) that keep the body’s cells healthy, functioning and alive. Energy healing is a holistic practice where healers channel universal life force (or healing energy) into a patient to help balance, heal and remove blockages from the body. Flow, balance, harmony and vitality within the body can be restored and maintained during a treatment.


Energy Medicine includes a variety of holistic healing modalities like: Reiki Energy Healing, Light Therapy, Acupuncture, Reflexology, Thai Massage, Tapping, and more. Your energetic body has a crucial role to play towards your wellbeing journey.


Here are 5 things everyone needs to know

about Energy Healing:

1. Energy Healing is Based on Scientific Fact.

Everything in this universe is composed of molecules that are vibrating at various frequencies. The molecules located within our bodies are constantly vibrating and radiating positive or negative, balanced or unbalanced, opened or closed frequencies. When our organs are misaligned energetically and radiating low-vibrational frequencies, it can materialize into physical ailments, like pains, sickness and disease. 


2. Energy Medicine Can Help Heal Physical and Emotional Traumas. 

Our energetic bodies are intertwined with our physical bodies. All the traumas we carry physically, emotionally and psychologically impact the functionality of our energy systems (chakras) and vice versa. To maintain vibrant health, the body needs its energies to have energetic space to flow freely throughout the body. When energies become blocked because of traumas, toxins, prolonged stress and muscular constrictions, it creates disturbances in the energy flow in our bodies, which over time contributes to mental, emotional issues and/or ailments and physical disease.


3. Energy Healing is Available to Everyone. 

There is often a misconception that you need to be spiritual to be open and receptive to energy healing. Energy healing is readily available to everyone who is interested and willing to receive it. You don’t need to be spiritual or hypersensitive to energies to benefit from an energy healing treatment. As humans (just like every living being), we all have an energetic body that needs to be balanced and taken care of regularly. Some energy medicine modalities, like reiki treatments, transcend time and space. Therefore, you don’t have to be located in the same room, city or even country as your energy healer to receive and benefit from energy healing treatment. 


4. Energy medicine is Painless and has No negative Side effects. 

During an energy healing treatment, patients will feel little to no physical discomfort. During the majority of the session, patients will be lying comfortably on a bed while the practitioner non-invasively assesses their aura and releases energetic blockages from the body. As the blockages are being released and chakras are being balanced, patients will experience a rebalancing process that may evoke a variety of emotions or physical sensations, like tiredness, anger, sadness, emptiness, or light headedness. This usually occurs when a deeply embedded trauma or attachment is finally released from the physical, emotional and energetic bodies. It is essential to allow your mind, body and soul to acknowledge the trauma that has been released during your energy healing treatment and fill that space with new, light, healing energies. 


5. Energy Medicine Works with Almost Every Other Type of Healing.

Energy healing therapy has been used to treat various health conditions and complements many other forms of treatments and therapies. Combining holistic therapies, like Reiki Energy Healing, with conventional health treatments can help you optimize your health and wellbeing. There is no “one size fits all” when it comes to healing. Energy medicine doesn’t replace Western Medicine and vice versa. But, together various forms of healing modalities and therapies can work in conjunction to effectively support, balance, restore, cure and repair your body.                   

A Beginner's Guide To The 7 Chakras 

 The seven chakras are the main energy centers of the body.


You've probably heard people talk about "unblocking" their chakras, which refers to the idea that when all of our chakras are open, energy can run through them freely, and harmony exists between the physical body, mind, and spirit.


Chakra translates to "wheel" in Sanskrit, and you can imagine them like wheels of free-flowing positive energy. In this beginner's guide, we'll summarize the defining characteristics of the seven main chakras, explain how to tell when any of them are blocked, and share how to unblock each one—from root to crown—using mantras, yoga poses, and more.


What are chakras?

The name “chakra” is the Sanskrit word for "wheel." In yoga, chakras are used to describe the way energy “moves” throughout the body. Each of the seven chakras (described below) are said to correlate with different abilities, expressions, and types of health.


In ascending order:

7. Crown Chakra (Sahasrara)

The Sahasrara, or crown chakra, the highest chakra, sits at the crown of the head and represents our ability to be fully connected spiritually. When you fully open your crown chakra—

something very few people ever do!—you're able to access a higher consciousness.

Location: The very top of the head

What it controls: Inner and outer beauty, spiritual connection

Lesson: "I am a vessel for love and light."

Color: Violet/White

Element: Divine Consciousness

Stone: Clear quartz

Yoga pose: Headstand

When it develops: 43-49 years old

6. Third-Eye Chakra (Ajna)

As we move up the body, we're getting closer to communion with the divine. The Anja, or third-eye chakra, controls our ability to see the big picture and connect to intuition.

Think of it as the eye of the soul: It registers information beyond the surface level.

Visions and intuitive hits are not uncommon for someone with an open third-eye chakra.

Location: Forehead between the eyes (also called the Brow Chakra)

What it controls: Intuition, imagination, and wisdom

Mantra: "I am open to exploring what cannot be seen."

Color: Dark Blue/Purple

Element: Light

Stone: Amethyst

Yoga pose: Child's Pose

When it develops: 36-42 years old

5. Throat Chakra (Vishuddha)

The Vishuddha, or throat chakra, gives voice to the heart chakra and controls our

ability to communicate our personal power.

When it's functioning at full capacity, it allows us to express ourselves truly and clearly. Someone with a blocked throat chakra will feel like they have trouble finding the words to say how they truly feel.

Location: Throat

What it controls: Communication, self-expression, and truth

Mantra: "I speak my truth, always."

Color: Light Blue/Turquoise

Element: Sound/Music

Stone: Aquamarine

Yoga pose: Fish Pose

When it develops: 29-35 years old

4. Heart Chakra (Anahata)

The Anahata, or heart chakra, is the bridge between the lower chakras (associated with materiality) and the upper chakras (associated with spirituality). As the name suggests, this chakra can influence

our ability to give and receive love—from others and ourselves.

Someone with a blocked heart chakra will have difficulty fully opening up to the people in their life.

If someone's heart is open, they can experience deep compassion and empathy.

Location: Center of chest, just above the heart

What it controls: Love, joy, and inner peace

Mantra: "When I love myself, loving others comes easily."

Color: Green

Element: Air

Stone: Rose Quartz

Yoga pose: Camel Pose

When it develops: 21-28 years old

3. Solar Plexus Chakra (Manipura)

The third chakra, the solar plexus chakra, speaks to your ability to be confident and in control of your life. Think back to the last time you had butterflies or felt a pit in the stomach:

That's the Manipura chakra at work.

If your solar plexus chakra is blocked, you might feel overwhelming amounts of shame and self-doubt.

Those with open sacral chakras are free to express their true selves.

Location: Upper abdomen in the stomach area

What it controls: Self-worth, self-confidence, and self-esteem

Mantra: "Self-love starts when I accept all parts of myself."

Color: Yellow

Element: Fire

Stone: Amber

Yoga pose: Boat Pose

When it develops: 15-21 years old

2. Sacral Chakra (Swadhisthana)

The Swadhisthana, or sacral chakra, helps inform how we relate to our emotions and the emotions of others. It also governs creativity and sexual energy.

Those with a blocked sacral chakra could feel a lack of control in their lives.

Location: Lower abdomen, about 2 inches below the navel

What it controls: Your sense of abundance, well-being, pleasure, and sexuality

Mantra: "I always honor others but not before myself."

Color: Orange

Element: Water

Stone: Tiger's Eye

Yoga pose: Bound Angle Pose

When it develops: 8-14 years old

1. Root Chakra (Muladhara)

The Muladhara, or root chakra, represents our foundation.

On the human body, it sits at the base of the spine and gives us the feeling of being grounded.

When the root chakra is open, we feel confident in our ability to withstand challenges and stand on our own two feet. When it's blocked, we feel threatened, as if we're standing on unstable ground.

Location: Base of spine, in tailbone area

What it controls: Survival issues such as financial independence, money, and food

Mantra: "I can't grow from an unsteady foundation."

Color: Red

Element: Earth

Stone: Hematite

Yoga pose: Warrior I

When it develops: 1-7 years old

Auras are thought of as the unseen field of energy surrounding a person's physical body. They're affected by our mood and emotional state (and sometimes the states of others), and different colors are associated with different qualities and emotions. Someone's aura is usually a combination of colors, with one being more dominant than the others. And while your aura can constantly shift and change, many people will have one color that consistently shows up. Here's a breakdown of each aura color and what they mean, plus how to figure out yours—and other people's. Red: energetic and fiery Orange: creative, action-oriented, and positive Yellow: sunny, charismatic, and confident Green: loving, compassionate, and nurturing Pink: kind, caring, and loving Blue: powerful, insightful, and flowing Purple: intuitive and empathic Indigo: sensitive and empathic White: pure, wise, and spiritually connected Black: tired and low Rainbow: busy, energized, and confident How to figure out your aura color Unless you happen to be someone who sees auras visually, you're probably wondering how you can actually figure out what color your aura is. There are places you can get your aura photographed during an aura reading, and you can also take our quick aura quiz to get a sense of your soul shade. To test your visual abilities, you can try to spot it yourself by gazing softly at somewhere on your body, or rubbing your hands together, slowly pulling them apart, and seeing if colors appear. The more you practice this, the better you will become at seeing the energetic field around your body. How to see another person's aura The same principles here apply as above: if you want to see someone else's aura, first, know you'll have to stare at them a bit. Hold your gaze on them steadily until you start to see the glow around their body, and whether it's a certain color. It's really that simple, though not everyone may be able to see auras as clearly. Need help with your health? This quiz will get you answers. Learn how to fill your health gaps in 90 seconds. TAKE QUIZ RELATED: Aura Cleansing: What Is It + How To Do It, From Experts 11 aura colors and their meanings Red If you have red in your aura, you are likely an energetic and fiery person, according to aura reader Rachelle Terry. Red auras indicate someone who is "quick at putting thoughts into actions" and "doesn't read instruction manuals." Each of the seven chakras is also associated with a color, so understanding the chakra colors helps when deciphering auras. For example, red relates to the root chakra, and if you're seeing a decent amount of red, it means your root chakra is stable and unblocked. Orange An orange aura is related to the sacral chakra, which deals with creativity and sexual energy. Orange in the aura may then indicate flowing creative energy. Additionally, Terry notes that if orange shows up in your aura, it might mean you "tend to learn lessons from experience rather than theory" and "often have to learn things the hard way." Yellow As you might have guessed with this cheery color, yellow auras signify someone who is sunny and charismatic, Terry says. They may also have a magnetic personality that attracts lots of different people. Yellow is the color of the solar plexus chakra, which deals with your identity and confidence. Yellow in your aura, then, is a good sign that you're feeling confident and empowered. ADVERTISEMENT THIS AD IS DISPLAYED USING THIRD PARTY CONTENT AND WE DO NOT CONTROL ITS ACCESSIBILITY FEATURES. Green Green is one color associated with the heart chakra, so it relates to matters of the heart: love for yourself and others, compassion, and forgiveness. If you have green in your aura, Terry notes you probably love "music, nature, and not being tied down." Because a green aura indicates a particularly open heart, Terry adds there may be a tendency to be easily influenced by one's environment or other people, making boundaries important for this aura color. Pink If there's pink in your aura (the other color, along with green, associated with the heart chakra), Terry says you likely live from the heart. You're "kind, caring, and loving." Similar to green, seeing pink is a sign that your heart chakra is open and receptive. Celebrate your kind and compassionate nature, but remember the need for boundaries. Blue Blue in someone's aura is a sign of a powerful mind—but one that might be a bit in the clouds. Those with lots of blue in their aura "operate more in the mental realms" and need to remember to ground themselves, Terry says. But they can also be very insightful. Blue is the color of the throat chakra, governing expression and truth. If your throat chakra is clear and flowing, the blue in your aura would signify outward expression of the insights you hold inside. READ NEXT Giving Yourself A Breast Massage Has Targeted Health Benefits Add this to your self-care practices, stat. by ANDREA JORDAN Purple Purple auras get a lot of attention because this is the color associated with strong intuition and sensitivity, and great mental depths, according to Terry. Purple is the color of the third-eye chakra, which deals with intuition. If you have purple in your aura, you may have some psychic, empathic, or intuitive abilities. Indigo According to aura reader and medium Megan Michaela Firester (aka Mystic Michaela), an indigo aura often indicates a highly sensitive and empathic person. "When I see an indigo aura on a person," Michaela tells mbg, "immediately I know they are someone who absorbs thoughts, feelings, emotions, and traumas of others." And the darker the indigo aura, the more sensitive the person, she adds, noting "Darker shades of indigo indicate a saturation of this ability and an overwhelm of others' energies within themselves." White It's a bit more rare to see concentrations of white in one's aura. But if you do, Terry notes that a white aura is the sign of a very quick mind—and a tendency for perfectionism and nervous energy. White is linked to the crown chakra, which connects us to universal energy and oneness. To see it in your aura would mean you have a strong sense of connection to something larger than yourself. ADVERTISEMENT THIS AD IS DISPLAYED USING THIRD PARTY CONTENT AND WE DO NOT CONTROL ITS ACCESSIBILITY FEATURES. Black If there is black or particularly dark areas of your aura, Terry notes this isn't actually the "color" of your aura, per se, but rather a sign that part of you is exhausted or fatigued. In this case, take some time to ground, heal, and balance your energy levels to brighten up that aura a bit, and bring your energetic field (and chakras) back into balance. Rainbow On the slight chance that you have a rainbow aura that displays more than two colors, it's a sign that you're going through a super busy period or are in the midst of a change. You might feel extra energized and confident when your aura is giving off rainbow vibes, so take advantage of it by getting out and meeting new people and doing new things. On the other side of the coin, this busy energy can lead to burnout and overwhelm, so be sure to make time for relaxation too. RELATED: What It Means If You Have A Brown Aura The takeaway Our aura is constantly changing—but for many people, one or two colors will consistently show up. Whether one day you're blue, yellow, or red, understanding the energy of your aura at any given point can help you approach the day with more ease.
