An excellent reason why you should use healing crystals and minerals is this: decreasing electromagnetic pollution in your home.
Electromagnetic fields (EMF) are naturally occurring energy waves that emit frequencies of 300 cycles per second. Add to this our many electronic toys and gadgets, all of which emit EMF, and the amount of EMF absorbed by our bodies quickly rises to unhealthy levels.
Too much EMF absorption can negatively affect your health, with a few of the many symptoms being: depression, paranoia, dizziness, tremors, skin rash, memory loss, weakened immune system, anxiety, sleepiness, insomnia, hair loss, heart attacks, fatigue, epilepsy, and the list goes on and on.
The guys on the SYFY show "Ghost Hunters" call indoors areas thick with EMF readings 'fear cages' because people who work in these areas often experience paranoia, hallucinations, depression, and other unpleasant symptoms. It is a very apt nickname for these places.
I lived in a 'fear cage' for the worst three years of my life to date, in a basement apartment that had the furnace, plumbing fixtures, and electrical wiring for the entire house right outside my bedroom door.
My physical and mental health plummeted. The heavy atmosphere made breathing difficult. I had no physical energy. It took an effort to walk around inside the apartment because it felt as if I were trying to walk through wet cement. A horrible inexplicable oozing rash developed on my hands. That apartment felt like an upper level of hell.
This is when I learned I am hyper-sensitive to EMF. A lot of people are without realizing. You could be hyper-sensitive to electromagnetic fields. This is not something to wave off as nothing! EMF pollution is an unavoidable by-product of our technological age, but it is also not impossible to live with if you limit your time around computer, appliances, and other electronic equipment.
Natural crystals and minerals from the earth can be used as EMF shields to help absorb the excess energy waves you and I wade through every day.
When looking for crystals or minerals to use for this purpose, look for varieties that absorb and ground energy. Below are examples of easy-to-find minerals you can use to absorb excess EMF emissions.
1. Jasper is my all-time favorite. This mineral absorbs excess EMF emissions as well as grounds and connects your energy with the earth. Wear jasper as a necklace or keep a good sized piece of jasper on your computer desk. This highly decorative stone comes in many beautiful colors and is commonly found at mineral shops, craft stores, or online.
I keep a strand of Jasper beads on my laptop while writing. Not only do the beads absorb the excess EMF, but they also ground my own energies, which keeps my thinking clear and focused.
2. Black Obsidian is another mineral that can knock excess EMFs out of the park. Obsidian, a shiny stone with a glassy black surface, is formed from molten lava. It sucks in negative energy from the environment, not only EMF but also negative energy created by emotions. This is a very grounding stone you may find too powerful for your liking. Remember to trust your intuition when choosing crystals and minerals.
3. If the energy of black Obsidian is too much for you, then try Smokey Quartz crystal. The energy of Smoky Quartz is strong, but it works slowly and gently. I think its energy has a grandmother feel to it; powerful, wise, ancient. This crystal works superbly as an EMF shield. Its energy can help relieve any stress, helps you to focus, and can even help you sleep.
4. Fluorite is another favorite crystal widely used by crystal people. It comes in shades of purple, green, blue, yellow, clear, white, and a combination of all the colors. Green fluorite works best for grounding and absorbing negative energy from the environment. But again, you may find purple or rainbow Fluorite is more your ticket. In the photo at the end of this page are green and purple Fluorite pyramids.
5. Malachite is a beautiful deep green stone with darker bands. It absorbs, grounds, and discharges negative energy in the environment, from situations, and from your personal energy bodies. This means its energy has a tendency to bring to light unresolved emotional issues, so, unless you want to resolve any issues, you might want to use Malachite in small amounts.
Never allow young children or your pets to ingest Malachite! Malachite has very high levels of copper in it which can cause serious and even fatal blood poisoning.
6. Pyrite stone resembles lumps of smooth metal. It will block EMF emissions as well as many other kinds of negative energy. Carry Pyrite in your pocket and keep it beside your microwave or computer. You might try taping a piece to your cell phone!
7. Let us not leave out the king of the crystal realm: clear quartz crystal. Clear quartz crystal is used in many ways, one being blocking and neutralizing EMF emissions. Place a large piece near your microwave or computer equipment, or place a large piece on each window sill in your computer room.
Choosing which kind of crystal or mineral to use is easy. Your energy will react either positively or negatively with different types of crystals and minerals. You may hate black Obsidian but love Jasper. You may not understand why and that is okay. Choose the crystals or stones that "feel right" to you and you will have a natural defense against the electromagnetic fields in your life.
