7 must-have grounding crystals for empaths

If you feel a great sense of empathy and you get to feel all the energies (good or bad) around you then you are an empath.

A person who acquires this distinct attribute succeeds in recognizing another individual emotions just by looking at the person’s face.

Plus an empath feels more and receives a high amount of different energies.

If you are an empath then you sense that your intuition tends to predict future events, sometimes closeness can make you feel overwhelmed, you feel uneasy in crowded places, you literally sense other people’s emotions like you are experiencing these same exact emotions…

All of these special attributes could make you feel drained, exhausted, and uncomfortable if you tend to let yourself be fully immersed and not take the time to ground yourself and create a vital shield that protects your precious energy.

Grounding crystals can really be so helpful for empaths.

The first thing to do is to pick a crystal (or multiple ones) that you feel most drawn to, the one you sense that it will fulfill your needs and intentions.

Then choose a quiet place where you feel the most peaceful.

Sit comfortably and take a few deep breaths.

Then hold your crystals and imagine a bright light coming to you and forming a big white circle around you.

Visualize that this circle is wrapping your whole body and filling you with positive, bright, and comforting sensations.

Imagine that this light is absorbing all of your worries, doubts, and negativity.

Then repeat the following affirmations (you can also say the affirmations that I just mentioned above) with a happy heart ” I am divinely protected” “I welcome positivity, happiness, hope, delight, and peace into my life”.
