Most of the time we purchase stones because they're pretty or because you just feel drawn to them. And although that is great and an initial process to helping clear your energy, we also have to remind ourselves that they should be used to help heal us from drastic energies that we have consumed. 

Two of my favorite go-to stones for energy release is Black Tourmaline and Smokey Quartz. They grasp harsh energies when we are around people who are constantly complaining and depressing, and especially people who put you down. Whether you are at the workplace, social gatherings or in a grocery store if you are just an inch close to this type of person that energy can easily attach itself to your aura. You cannot expect to be a positive influence or have an uplifting personality when you have this type of energy imbedded in your aura.

So what do you do with that nasty energy on you? Well, you have to release it. Releasing energy from you aura is very simple and only takes about 10 minutes. It's a matter of genuinely taking the time to sit down, relax, and go through the process open minded and whole heartedly. With hectic schedules and daily routines I can honestly say I don't do this as often as I should. Life is always taking us away from our necessities. 

But when I do discipline myself and really take the time to take care of my energy I do the following steps. Feel free to change anything that works better for you. Really, the most important part is using your stone for its sole purpose and cleansing it.

How to Release Negative Energies 

  1. Sit in a relaxing atmosphere. 
  2. Hold your stone in your hand.
  3. Close your eyes if you feel comfortable enough to do so.
  4. Take a few relaxing breaths.
  5. Focus on the stone that you are holding.
  6. Can you sense anything coming from the stone? How does it make you feel? 
  7. Allow some time to get to develop your connection with the stone. There will be moments when you feel nothing at all and that is okay. 
  8. Imagine that the stone has an invisible energy that will now consume the negative energy out of your body. Visualize the stone slowly sucking out the energy from your body as if it were a vacuum. Start from the top of your head and work all the way down to your feet.
  9. Take a few breaths.
  10. How do you feel? Do you feel lighter?
  11. Cleanse your stone either by burning some sage over it, place it in the sun or allowing it to stay underneath the moon light. (This is a very important step as it will cleanse all of the energy it picked up from you)

How amazing would it be if you just had to do this one time in your entire lifetime? That's way too easy. So the next time you use a stone as an accessory to your desk or nightstand, let it be a reminder to constantly use it to your advantage whenever you are feeling low in energy, negative, "that" person nobody wants to be around, and a debbie downer.
