Keeping yourself protected is an important part of health and wellness. Setting energetic boundaries is an important part of this work – and crystals can help to energetically support you during this process. 

This crystal layout for shielding your energy body can help to protect you from the energy of others or from outside energies in your environment.  When you work preventatively to stay protected, you keep yourself from being depleted and you’re better able to stay in balance and alignment.

Crystal Layout for Shielding

Remove Outside Energies from Your Aura:

Start creating this crystal layout  for shielding by placing a vertical line of four Smoky Quartz crystals on either side of the body. There should be a total of eight stones placed in two separate lines.  These crystals help to energetically dissolve any outside energy or psychic debris that has accumulated in your field. By removing this energy, you’re bringing your own energy back into balance. This way, you’re better able to deal with new incoming energies as they emerge.

Protect Yourself from Incoming Energy:

Then, place a piece of Hematite between and just below your feet. This will help to keep you grounded and connected to the earth.  When you’re rooted into the earth, you can continuously pull in a stream of energy into your aura to keep your energy reserves full. This will stop you from getting depleted easily.

In each of your hands, hold a piece of Labradorite (so two pieces total) to shield your physical and energetic bodies from picking up on outside energy. This is especially helpful for those who are highly sensitive or for those who have trouble setting boundaries.

Simplify When You Don’t Have Time or Space for a Full Crystal Layout:

If you’re in need of some quick support with shielding or boundary setting, try just holding a Labradorite stone in your hands (or one in each hand). Doing something small like this is much better than doing nothing at all because you’re lacking in time or space. You may find it helpful to keep a piece of Labradorite with you for anytime the need may arise. You can also keep things convenient by wearing a Labradorite pendant or bracelet to use in a pinch!

    Thank you, Ashley, for another great blog! As individual’s we seek to be well, and it’s especially important for healers to so in order to be effective in our efforts to help others. While helping others and actively engaging their energy, I find myself especially vulnerable to others….so I’m so grateful to have yet another tool and practice (provided by this blog) to guide me in maintaining self-protection and wellbeing!

    Hi you mentioned, Tektita, hematite an labradorita.

    On the sides are what smoky quartz?

    How many days do i do this ?

    Thank you !!

    1. Ashley Love and Light Support on April 6, 2021 at 2:57 pm

      Yes, smoky quartz! 🙂 And as often as you feel necessary- once or twice a month should be alright, but if you feel like it needs to be a weekly ritual that is ok as well! Trust your intuition 🙂 <3 Crystal Blessings!

    Thank you for this video/podcast. I finally found you on apple and subscribed to my podcasts. Tektite is interesting. And I like my moldavite dome 😉

    1. Ashley Love and Light on April 6, 2021 at 3:00 pm

      Absolutely! Oh that is so kind, thank you 🙂 Glad to have you here! And it is interesting, those are both very powerful and unique crystals!

    I saw this on your Instagram and loved the simplicity!

    1. Ashley Love and Light on April 6, 2021 at 3:01 pm

      That’s so nice to hear! Thank you! 🙂 Crystal Blessings

    Loved this pod cast and video. How long and often do you suggest laying in the center of this grid?

    1. Ashley Love and Light on April 6, 2021 at 3:05 pm

      That’s so nice to hear! 🙂 It can depend, for these types of things it is really best to follow your intuition and do what feels right. <3 Once or twice a month would be fine, but you can do it more or less as you feel it's necessary! Same for length, at least 10-15 minutes would be a good start. 🙂 Crystal Blessings!

    Hi Ashley, thank you for your informative and easy to follow podcast on protecting yourself from incoming energy.

    I have applied to your waitlist for your next CCH program and regularly checking to see when this is launched for registration, but in the meantime I wanted to know if you sell or know where I can purchase one of the wood burned crystal layout chakra boards that you show in many of your podcasts? I can see that these would be particularly helpful when wanting to to do distance healing but also for your self when time is short.

    I appreciate your assistance in this query and look forward to the registration opening for your next CCH program. Kind regards Fiona.

    1. Ashley Love and Light on April 6, 2021 at 3:09 pm

      Hi Fiona! Absolutely. 🙂 Thanks for being here! We would love to have you join our school and student community. <3 As far as the layout boards go- our school's official shop often has a few options for these (though stock has been a bit low lately last I saw). You can find their shop HERE and reach their team to ask any questions HERE. 🙂 Sending crystal blessings!
