Gemstone Therapy: ShieldersOk, so you’re wondering how “shielding” is any different from grounding, cleansing, or protection. One thing to keep in mind is that these actions are all interrelated…but not the same thing.Shielding yourself from unwanted energy & influences is about STOPPING the bad stuff BEFORE it gets to you. It makes you look less appetizing by making you harder to get at & less noticeable.“A pinch of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” as the saying goes.In essence, it’s a more defensive (shoring up your castle walls) way of protecting yourself, rather then offensive (kickboxing a mugger) protection.Shielding: a defensive maintenance system.
It can also help to create a barrier that will keep anything dangerous emanating from YOU away from others.This is a wonderful safety feature for natural psychic vampires to employ. (Yes, there is such a thing.)Stones such as Obsidian are for when stuff is really out of whack!
(*Keep in mind you still have to cleanse & charge these crystals)

Black tourmaline (2 chunks)- This is THE empathic blocker stone, but it also has a tendency to absorb negative energies. If you’re in a particularly nasty environment, switch your tourmaline stones midway through your day. Then clean them out with either early morning sunlight (between sunrise and around 11am, when the sunlight is at at its strongest) or a nice chunk of white selenite.These are a few of the shielder crystals that I’ve found to work wonders and that are readily available (while still being mostly cost effective).****But don’t just take my word for it , get out there and research it!****~Alicia Anspaugh-Mccullough, DMNAS
