A lot of people come to the store looking for crystals for protection. Although black tourmaline is often the recommended gemstone for protection, there are many options to choose from. Some might be better suited for you than others, depending on the situation and the underlying energies contributing to the sense of lack of protection.
I always advise that one must look at what causes them to feel threatened and vulnerable, and to address the source of their insecurities.
Contributing factors of powerlessness
Often times, I sense people having difficulties expressing their feelings and wishes clearly and confidently as the source of vulnerability. It creates difficulty in asserting themselves and their desires in a certain situation.
For others, it is caused by easily picking up other people’s energies, mood, and emotions. When someone has a high degree of empathy and hasn’t learned to differentiate their energy field and own space from others, it can become quickly draining to be around people.
We can also be vulnerable to the negative psychic energies being directed at us. If someone has a strong negative thought about you (conscious or unconscious) that can affect your life and health on many levels. These types of energies are often seen and labeled as curses and psychic attacks. However, these can only have en effect if you are holding resonating frequencies. Common resonating frequencies are the beliefs and emotions that you deserve it somehow, have self-punishing tendencies or tend to have strong negative thoughts towards others.
