Hi there! I am an overly sensitive person and I am very affected by peoples energy and energy vampires. I also have someone around me that is just such a energy vampire, they are so draining and I am just so susceptible to it. I usually wear rainbow moonstone. Is there any other stone that might work better? Thanks!
Thank you for contacting Healingcrystals.com with your crystal question. Being sensitive to the energy of others can be such a difficult thing to live with! I find that for protection from the energy of others and against psychic attacks such as energy vampirism, Selenite, Black Tourmaline and Black Obsidian are some of the best protective crystals.
I have struggled with this myself in the past, and I know it can be debilitating and also very hard to explain to those around you! Finding ways to strengthen and manage your own energy can be helpful as well. It is possible you are an empath—someone who feels others’ emotions. Finding some books and articles on the subject can be helpful in understanding and living with this.
Also, keeping your own energy and emotions strong and of a higher vibration than those around you can also be helpful. (I find that when I am stressed or angry myself, all the other stressed and angry energy around me flies at me and clings to me like I’m a magnet!) High Vibration crystals like Moldavite, Phenacite and Sugilite can be helpful for raising your vibration and wearing one throughout the day may help keep you above the negative energy that plagues you. I would caution, however, that some people have difficulty staying grounded when using these crystals, so also wearing a grounding crystal like Black Tourmaline, Hematite or Red Jasper might be helpful.
Finally, a book that might be helpful for you is "The Art of Psychic Protection" by Judy Hall. There are lots of strategies in this book and you may find a few that will work for you in addition to the crystals, or for those times when you just don't have crystals available.
I hope you find these crystal recommendations helpful. Remember to clear and energize your crystals when you wear them regularly for protection, or they will lose effectiveness. Please contact us again if we can be of further assistance.
