Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Angel Therapy Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D: Emotional Sensitivity
Emotional Sensitivity: “Honor and respect your deep emotional sensitivity, as it is a gift to us all!”
“Have you been teased, or felt bad, about the fact that you are extremely sensitive? If you, this card is the angels’ reassurance of the positive qualities within your gift of sensitivity. For example, you accurately know whether or not a new acquaintance is trustworthy. The angels are working with you to trust this feeling more often and not berate yourself if you have disallowed your intuition in the past.
You are peaceful by nature, so you naturally avoid conflict and other harsh energies. Ask your angels to steer you toward other peace loving people and keep all others away from you. Honor your sensitivity by surrounding yourself with gentleness in your relationships, media choices, home life, and work situation.
Live plants are one of the angels; favorite tools for clearing away physical and emotional toxins. Today, put a life potted plant right next to your bed so that tonight its energy can clear and transmute anything you may have absorbed. Just at the plant transforms toxic carbon into breathable air, it will also transform fear energy, so that you will sleep peacefully and wake up refreshed. Be sure to take great care of the plant! (Call upon the fairies for help with this.)*

Crystals can also be a huge asset in protection against negative energies from other people or places, and they can also be placed around your home or office, or under your pillow to help you to transform fears into positive thought, heal and protect you during sleep. Actually, they can be used for a multitude of things that many books have been written about, one of my favorites being The Book Of Stones, by Robert Simmons.
My favorite crystals to use for repelling negative energies are Black Tourmaline and Black Obsidian. Black Tourmaline, according to The Book Of Stones: “Offer psychic protection for anyone who must work or live in challenging places or circumstances. It can keep one’s auric field clear of imbalance even in the presence of destructive energies. Black Tourmaline crystals act like etheric vacuum cleaners, clearing oneself and one’s surroundings of negativity and disharmony. Another application for Black Tourmaline is etheric purification. Carrying one of these stones in the pocket, holding one in meditation of sleeping with one in the pillowcase will provide a refreshing dose of cleansing for the auric field and the etheric body. This clearing can even echo down into the physical form. Black Tourmalines are also recommending oneself of negative thoughts, anxieties, anger, self-judgment and ideas of unworthiness.” Black Obsidian, according to The Book Of Stones: “Is like a psychic vacuum cleaner, cleansing the auric field of disharmony, negative attachments, astral “junk,” as well as one’s own anger, fear, greed, resentment, etc.”
Both Black Tourmaline and Black Obsidian are affordable and plentiful stones, so they are easily obtained and worked with. Even a small tumbled stone in your pocket or under your pillow will help you, although I would suggest if you are in a particularly stressful environment, put one in each pocket or wear a stone as a pendant. Placed under your pillow they will work with your auric field as you sleep, to remove old negative blocks and help to raise your vibration. Definitely worth working with!
These are just two of the many, many beautiful and highly energetic stones; there is so much more out there, and remember, if you would like to work with stones, the best way to start is to go to a reputable shop when you are not in a rush, and spend some time choosing stones with the intention of healing whatever aspect of your life you wish to heal. Allow the right stones to find you, they always do! And they may not be the one that you went there for… and that is even better!
