Whether your house is haunted or you just want to take extra precautions to ward away negative energies, there are several steps you can take in order to do so. As a historic/ghost tour guide in Saint Augustine, one of the most haunted cities in the U.S., I constantly am cleansing myself of negative spirits. I had a tour years ago where a medium claimed something nasty was following me home each night and causing chaos in my life. She told me about the certain crystals I could wear to protect myself.
I personally wear a couple of different crystals but the big one that wards off negative energies is Black tourmaline/Obsidian. These two stones are so dark, they are said to absorb the energy and keep it from coming in contact with you. I also wear crystals that introduce positive energies such as clear quartz. Clear quartz is also referred to as the master stone because healing properties. The use of crystals and the belief of spirits is something that dates all the way back to the ancient Egyptians and Romans.
A lot of people may also use white sage to cleanse the bad spirits out of the air. White sage is purifying and is used in many cultures to ward off negative energies from location/buildings. Some people believe that holy water and salt may also keep away negative spirits. It is never a bad idea to douse your crystals in holy water or holy oil.
I, for one, use all of these methods if I ever feel like something has followed me home from a tour and I’ve always been able to clear the negative energies from me. If you have already tried all of these steps, there are certain kits you can order online with everything you need to protect yourself. If you’ve tried every last resort- contact a professional exorcist, spiritualist, or demonologist.
Have a scary good day,
Tour guide and ghost enthusiast
