5 Crystals That Are Essential for Empaths

Whether you are new to exploring crystals or you have a large crystal collection, it's always great to know which crystals are best for certain things. Crystals have been used for their energy healing properties for a very long time, and they've been highly regarded throughout history. People have used them in spiritual practices as tools of divination and as sacred talismans. Crystals are considered living things just like plants and animals, and they have an energy frequency all their own. Each crystal out there holds a different energy or vibration that can help us with different things and aid in our spiritual practices. Depending on what you need at any given moment, different crystals may resonate with you. So always pay attention to which crystals you're being drawn toward, that's your intuition telling you what you need at the moment. If you are extremely sensitive and empathic, there are also crystals that will help you out more than others may and Divine Soul Journey has shared some of those with us on their website.

An empath is someone who is highly sensitive or highly empathic, so much so that they tend to take on other people's energy, emotions and feelings. It's important to learn how to embrace your empathic nature without becoming too invested in solving other people's issues, and to learn how to set boundaries to protect yourself first and foremost. Once you've done that, you can also use crystals to help you feel more relaxed and calm in your life. You can carry these crystals with you in your pocket or a pouch, even in your purse or bag. You can also find jewelry made with these crystals that you can wear all the time in the form of necklaces, rings, earrings and bracelets. Divine Soul Journey shares the 5 crystals that all highly empathic people should have in their crystal collection, so if you haven't started yours yet, this will help you get started. You can find these crystals in online stores, in crystal stores in cities and towns and you can also find out more about going on crystal digs where you can unearth some of your very own crystals.

The first crystal they mention on the list is Amethyst. Amethyst is a powerful stone that is very calming and relaxing. It can help highly sensitive people calm their nervous system and relax their minds. Since it's purple, it's connected with the third eye and crown chakra which are connected with our intuition and higher sense of knowing. So it helps us trust in our intuition so we can discern what's good and not good for us as well as what is our energy and what is not. It also helps with a restful sleep as well which is necessary for good health. Rose quartz is another soothing and calming crystal that will help highly empathic people. It's associated with the heart chakra and unconditional love. It's part of an empathic person's journey to learn how to love themselves first and then extend themselves to others. So rose quartz can help with that. You can keep a piece of this crystal with you or wear it as a piece of jewelry, so it's with you all day long. Obsidian is a darker crystal with a rich, deep black and gold tone. It's also great for calming like the other two, but it also has some great grounding effects as well. So when empathic people are feeling overwhelmed obsidian is a great crystal to hold onto. These are just three of the crystals that are mentioned in the list but make sure you read about the other two as well.***
