I have a friend who has started to become aware of certain abilities that she has - she says she is an empath. She knows when certain things will happen, can feel what others feel, can feel negative energy, feels different presences around her and she can sometimes feel the effects of this on her body, she can feel it in her throat, chest, gets dizzy and basically I would like to buy her some crystals to help. Could you reccomend some crystals that would be beneficial to her? I've been told about clear quartz and amethyst. Is this right and are there any more? Also, what is the best way to wear them or do you just keep them in your house? Thank you so much.
Thank you for your inquiry. What a great friend you are for seeking out resources on her behalf! It can be challenging to be an empath, particularly if she is just realizing the effects now. As you mentioned,Amethystis a great choice for empaths for a couple of reasons. Not only is it protective and healing, but it can also aid your friend in further developing her empathic qualities, should she desire to do so. Herkimer Diamonds, a form of Clear Quartz, will enhance her connections with others while easing any tensions that arise in this process. Black Obsidian is a good choice to help protect her from the negative energy she may be feeling from others by transmuting and releasing it.
Any of the suggested crystals will help your friend if she wears them on her, especially when in public places and around others. She can do this by wearing them as jewelry, placing them in her pocket, or being creative with other ways she can incorporate them into her clothing. She may also stand to gain from meditating with them, particularly when first acquired to attune to their energy.

I must share the standard disclaimer that I am not a doctor and cannot give out medical advice. Crystals for healing should be used as a complement to other therapies and not as a replacement for regular medical care. The information offered here is based on a combination of my own personal experiences and that of others on using crystals for healing. My hope is that you will let your own intuition guide your path in working with crystals as well.
