Welcome to Part IV of the series where we are working with the crystal kingdom. As I stated in Part I, protection magick is some of my favorite magick to discuss and teach. A reason for favoritism is that when people learn protection magick, they are defending themselves, protecting their energy and sanity, establishing boundaries, and breaking unhealthy relationship patterns. What’s not to love?

Before we look at the list of crystals, I want to address a few common sense points to remember prior to using protection magick. These reminders are very important as it will reinforce and add to the strength of your protection magick. Think of it as a car having working breaks, working airbags, and you’re wearing your seatbelt for reinforcing protection while driving to the best of your abilities (of course besides having the emergency breaks and abiding by the speed limit).

Keep in mind the following:

  • Practice being aware of your surroundings
  • Believe in your intuition when something feels “off”
  • It’s okay to say “No.”
  • It’s okay to not go to a party.
  • Lock your doors and windows
  • Don’t tell everyone your business
  • Be careful about what you post on social media (For example, post/check in yourself at a place AFTER you leave)
  • Stay away from negative people who don’t add value in your life
  • Tell trusted people where you’re going and who you’re meeting when you’re going to a meetup, date, etc and make it a public well-lit place

Okay. Now that we have gotten many common sense points out of the way, let’s get to the spell work.

As a reminder:

You are the magick. How powerful your magick is has nothing to do with how detailed it is. In actuality, the power of your emotional intent, your imagination, your belief, and how you feel at the moment.
