In the world of crystals, there are many that offer us protection against negativity, energy leaks, psychic attacks, and energy vampires.

Whichever ones we feel the most drawn to are usually the right ones for us. As with anything else in our lives, believing and having faith in them will
amplify their powers.

Here is my selection of the three best crystals to use for protection:


Turquoise has been used as a talisman of protection and good fortune by many ancient civilizations, including the Incas, Aztecs, and Egyptians.

It is believed that this bright, blue-green crystal surrounds its wearer with a powerful shield that keeps them safe from harm.

Turquoise crystal has incredibly uplifting energy and you can feel its bright vibes recharging you just by looking at it! It is also a wonderful crystal to enhance your intuition and boost psychic powers.

After all, our own intuition and inner wisdom is our first line of defense against negative energy and danger of any kind. By connecting to our inner guidance we instantly connect to the limitless source of universal wisdom, for we carry the whole Universe within our souls.

This boundless wisdom is available to each one of us every single moment. It can prevent us from making bad choices and ending up in dangerous situations. It can warn us about someone’s deceitful intentions, since we always get that gut feeling about untrustworthy people and places. The question is whether we trust that fleeting feeling or not.

Wearing jewelry made with a Turquoise crystal or carrying a piece of this stone in our purse or pocket can help us tune with our intuition and follow it when the situation calls for it.

Since ancient times, Turquoise is believed to keep one safe while traveling to far-off lands and distant places.

As a crystal of luck and good fortune, it helps us attract abundance on all levels, including career success, and financial prosperity. It can also prevent us from making unprofitable business deals.


Onyx is another crystal that was held in high esteem by ancient civilizations.

Onyx was used in rituals of magic because of its close connection with the Spirit world. It is a stone that symbolizes the darkness of the soul and rebirth through facing our own fears and weaknesses.

Onyx creates a potent shield of protection around our aura. It has the unique ability to heal the aura and close any existing holes and energy leaks.

The energy of Onyx is empowering in the strongest sense. This is a crystal that reminds us to take responsibility for our own lives and to step out of the victim role. Ultimately, it is up to us to protect our own energy by removing ourselves from toxic people and situations. No one else is going to save us.

It is believed that Onyx takes us on a shamanic quest into the darkest corners of our mind. It has a reputation for bringing up painful memories and deep-rooted traumas from the past, so that we can finally release them with compassion.

Healing works in layers – as we move deeper and deeper into our wounds, we can finally heal them and release the blocked energy underneath them.

After the Dark Night of the Soul, rays of light will break through, bringing a new dawn filled with joy and lightness.

Those who have stood face to face with their own dark side and have not given up, will always be rewarded with incredible inner strength.

This inner strength will protect us from anything life may throw at us, for once we have stepped through the darkness, we know that we have the power to do it again. This is the message that Onyx brings.

Tiger’s Eye

Tiger’s Eye has the reputation for being one of the most powerful talismans of protection out there. Its energy is unmatched when it comes to boosting strength and courage, as it embodies the main characteristics of a tiger.

Tigers own their power with grace. They never abuse it, for they live in balance with the laws of nature.

Tiger’s Eye crystal teaches us to have patience and to wait for the right moment to go after our heart’s desires. Patience means trusting in our own power.

Once we learn to act from a place of trust instead of fear or desperation, we are tapping into a boundless source of guidance and protection.

Tiger’s Eye helps us unlock our true potential and encourages us to take a risk when the timing feels right. It is here to remind us that those who are brave of heart will always receive extra support and protection from the Universe.

Tiger’s Eye is believed to bring success and good luck to the one who wears it. Its bright and vibrant energy will give us a much-needed boost of confidence and willpower to take action towards turning our dreams into reality!
