To wrap up this week’s conversation on energy cleansing and personal power I figured I’d share 12 crystals to support clearing, letting go of the past, and holding a high vibe.
How to Work with Crystals
Working with crystals is something that is specific to the person. You may have a personal preference or the way you like to work with crystals.
At a core level, it’s about vibration. For us crystal lovers, it is believed (and in some cases proven) that crystals hold a certain vibration and have healing properties.
When you are working to align with a certain vibration or release certain energies crystals can support you in this.
When I was working on cultivating more self-love and compassion I would wear a heart shaped rose quartz necklace and practice aligning to the vibration of the crystal.
In the beginning, I wore the crystal every single day.
As time went on I wanted to practice aligning myself to the vibration so I would take the crystal off for a day here and there, until I became comfortable with aligning myself from within.
That is one way I used the energetic support of crystals to not only align with vibration but also to learn what the vibration felt like so I could learn to get there more intentionally from within.
12 Crystals for Energetic Cleansing and Clearing
Having said that here are 12 crystals to support your energetic clearing and alignment.
I will kick off with my absolute fave:
- Rose Quartz. Referred to as the “Stone of Self-Love,”
Rose Quartz is a gentle and nurturing crystal that promotes love, compassion, and emotional healing. It opens the heart chakra, allowing you to cultivate self-love and empathy for others.
By working with Rose Quartz, you can release past emotional wounds, forgive yourself and others, and embrace a more loving vibration.
- Black Obsidian
A powerful and protective stone, Black Obsidian is known for its ability to absorb and transmute negative energies.
It acts as a shield against psychic attacks and helps in releasing emotional baggage or trauma. Black Obsidian also supports grounding, helping you stay rooted and centered during challenging times.
- Black Tourmaline
Like Black Obsidian, Black Tourmaline is an excellent crystal for protection. It works by creating a shield around your aura, deflecting negative energies, and encouraging a more positive mindset.
This crystal is especially helpful for empaths and highly sensitive individuals who may absorb energies from their surroundings.
- Tiger’s Eye
This beautiful golden-brown crystal is a powerful stone for increasing confidence, courage, and willpower.
It helps you stay focused on your goals, boosting motivation, and encouraging a proactive approach to life.
Tiger’s Eye also brings balance and harmony, helping you make decisions from a place of inner strength.
Selenite is a high-vibrational crystal that promotes clarity, purification, and spiritual connection.
It has the unique property of self-cleansing and can be used to cleanse and charge other crystals. Placing Selenite in your living spaces or using it during meditation can help create a peaceful and harmonious environment.
- Red Jasper
This nurturing and grounding crystal provides stability and support during times of stress and change. Red Jasper’s soothing energy helps to release tension and promotes a sense of security.
It also stimulates the root chakra, fostering a strong connection with the earth and enhancing your sense of belonging.

A symbol of royalty and wisdom, Lapis Lazuli encourages self-awareness, spiritual growth, and inner truth.
It activates the third eye chakra, enhancing intuition and psychic abilities. Lapis Lazuli is an excellent companion for those seeking to explore their spiritual path and expand their consciousness.
Known as a “stone of transformation,” Malachite helps facilitate inner growth and positive change.
It is deeply connected to the heart chakra and aids in emotional healing. Malachite’s vibrant green color is a reminder of nature’s beauty and the importance of connecting with the natural world.
Often called the “Success Stone” or “Merchant’s Stone,” Citrine is associated with abundance, prosperity, and joy. It helps clear negative energy and empowers you to attract positive opportunities and outcomes.
Citrine’s bright energy uplifts the spirit and fosters a positive outlook on life.
A mesmerizing crystal known for its iridescent play of colors, Labradorite is a stone of magic and intuition. It enhances psychic abilities, spiritual awareness, and protects your aura from negative influences. Labradorite helps you tap into your inner wisdom and navigate through life’s uncertainties.
As a stone of vitality and creativity, Carnelian infuses your life with passion and motivation.
