i have had negative energy and darkness around me for sometime now. so much so that when i drive or walk by lamp posts at night they often go out.
i am looking for recommendations of what crystals and how to use. i know it is not the house its just around me. i can really feel it at night when i sleep.
Greetings and thank you for your question. I am noticing that there are a number of people experiencing the same things you are describing lately. I have a few suggestions for you.
First, I would consider saging your home for clearing and protection. Get a bundle of sage, and walk through your house with one end smoldering, getting the smoke from it everywhere you can in each room. As you do this, it would be helpful for you to perhaps hold a special crystal in one hand and say, either silently or aloud, that you wish all negative energies to leave your space, and only loving energies are aloud to come into your personal space. Some people like to use a bell. Also do this with your body. You can also take a cleansing bath ritual to help you release these dark energies. I use Dead Sea Salts in a bath with Lavender, and even some crystals, and a candle on the side. Learn about color magick. Wearing a color like yellow, for instance, highlights the Will which is housed in the Solar Plexus Chakra. You can also learn about empowering your aura. In fact, I think I should do an article on that subject.
Every time you take a bath or shower, you might consider thinking about strengthening your aura and chakras, and releasing negative energies. During the bath, it would be helpful to have a candle lit and a window cracked. This should help clear your aura of negative energies. I have had this happen to me recently, and I had to do allot of work to clear the air in my home and around me. I had to cleanse all of my crystals, as there were definitely negative energies hovering near me. I also did a modified fast with a good detox tea and that seems to help one to break free of any binding type energies. There were also many lessons to be found in the whole situation for me. If we don't face these things, they always end up coming back in a stronger way than before.
If you have crystals, I would suggest clearing them all with positive intent, and then using them to grid your home for protection against negative energies. When you program your crystals, you must always keep the highest good in mind, and ask that only loving or beneficial energies come into your space. You can do this with any jewelry you might have also.
Another thing to consider is that this energy may be around you for a reason. Perhaps there is some lesson you are dealing with that is related to it, and once you figure out what the lesson is, you will be able to release it. Still, protection rituals and stones can never hurt. Remember to ground yourself after any ritual, cleansing or otherwise. Standing barefoot on the Earth can help you do this. In the worst of times, take heart, as when there is an abundance of darkness, it usually means that a great light source is nearby. Also, you know it's always darkest before the dawn, right? Some things I have found helpful and important in my own experiences these days include: Always asking for the will of the One Universal Source, or God, as you may call it; asking for only the Highest Good; and Focusing on Love in any moment in which you feel fear.
Now, for the specific crystals I would recommend...
I feel that some Selenite would definitely benefit you. Selenite has a comforting, angelic vibration that can help one to tune into higher guidance when needed. Selenite is known for invoking angelic protection and for dispelling negative energy. I love both the Selenite Wands and the Hearts for this purpose. I always feel somewhat protected when holding my Selenite. We have some Selenite items on this page, if you're interested:
Another stone that might be helpful is Obsidian. Obsidian is a well-known grounding stone for negative vibrations that are not in harmony with your own desires. You can use Obsidian with each of the chakras to cleanse them of these dark vibes. Be sure to cleanse and program them first with positive intent for the highest good. I like to cleanse my Obsidian in the Earth at least for an hour, but often overnight. If you would like to see our Obsidian, go to this page:
Highly protective Hematite would be wonderful for helping you transmute these negative energies, as you begin to understand their purpose. Hematite also helps us to integrate any higher, spiritual energies into one's everyday existence. Hematite can help one to achieve a state of balance and equilibrium, and is known as a good stone for encouraging detox and healing of the liver and blood. You can keep a piece of Hematite near your computer to counteract effects from electromagnetic smog. If you would like to see our Hematite, take a look at this page:
For gridding, you might consider Tibetan Quartz. Tibetan Quartz is great for placing on the window sills for protection against any incoming, negative vibrations. Many people also like to use it for a personal, pocket crystal, or as an energy-healing, treatment stone. Tibetan Quartz is great for balancing the chakras and meridians. If you'd like to see some Tibetan Quartz, please follow this link:
Any new crystals you get should be cleansed and programmed for the highest good, even if you don't yet have a purpose for them. We have articles on Cleansing and Programming Your Crystals, as well as many other subjects, on this page:
Please also consider looking at our articles that specifically mention protection. You can see these on this page:
