Smoky Quartz: “Clearing Negativity”
“You drew this card because there is a need to clear away negative energy from within or around you. This could be negativity in your present life or some grievance from your past that you have been harboring and have had difficulty forgiving. Fortunately, you do not need to consciously know which form of negativity you are clearing, nor are you advised to analyze it. After all, focusing upon negativity only gives it strength and power.
You need some self care to clear yourself right now. This could take the form of praying for God, Jesus and Archangel Michael to lift away what does not serve you. You may even want to ask a trusted religious or spiritual healer for help with this process.
Those who are highly sensitive often absorb lower energies. So it is nothing to fear or be ashamed of. It is simply a matter of taking care of the situation. Other effective clearing methods include:
~Sleeping next to a smoky quartz crystal
~ Spraying sage oil, ‘smudging’ a sage wand or eating powdered sage spice
~ Soaking in a sea salt bath
~ Spending time in nature
~ Doing gentle exercise”
About Smoky Quartz: “This crystal is usually gray, brown or black and frequently translucent. Smoky Quartz helps with psychic protection, releasing negativity, clearing the past and grounding.”*
~ By Doreen Virtue
Cleansing, clearing and purifying yourself and your surroundings is necessary now. Maybe there has been a toxic person or stressful situation, or maybe the energy is stagnant. Whatever the reason, you are being called to clear. All the suggestions above are amazing ways to clear the energy. Starting with yourself and your living space, White Buffalo sage is a powerful cleanser. Sage works both physically, helping to remove viruses and bacteria; as well as energetically, by removing lower density negative vibes. I like to close all the doors and windows, then go clockwise around the house starting from the main entry point. When you have done a full circle, do yourself and anyone else in the house with you. When you are done, open all the doors and windows and let all the smoke out. You will notice a big difference in your own energy and the energy of your space.
Soaking in a sea salt bath is another option to clear your own energy if you are feeling run down, if you have had a stressful event or argument or are feeling as if your energy has been negatively affected by another person. Add some epsom salts to boost your magnesium and help any sore muscles. Add a couple of drops of your favourite essential oil and light a candle, staying in the bath for 20 min to relax.
If you have a smoky quartz crystal, keep it close to you now. It will help to protect you from negative energy, including your own! Smoky quartz is a must for every crystal collection. Here is some information on Smoky Quartz from Robert Simmons Pocket Book Of Stones:
Smoky Quartz: Grounding, transmutation of negative energies, practicality, organization, manifestation of one’s dreams and inspirations
Physical: Offers spiritual protection from radiation, supports healing from sunburn, dispels the physical effects of negative energies
Emotional: Helps spiritual people feel positively engaged with physical life
Spiritual: Protective and grounding, manifests the spiritual in the physical
Smoky Quartz is one of the premier grounding stones. It can help even the spaciest individuals get their “land legs” so they can fully function as physical beings. It also aids the grounding of spiritual information. Smoky Quartz enhances practicality and organization. It can help one avoid extravagance, except when it comes to purchasing Smoky Quartz! It offers protection from negative energies in one’s environment. It can absorb and transmute almost unlimited amounts of negativity.
Smoky Quartz has a way of drawing the ethereal into manifestation. When one is wearing or carrying a smoky Quartz, one is actually more likely to see such phenomena as fairies and spirit guides. Rather than raising one’s vibration, it draws the entities into one’s auric field and down to one’s level of perception. For similar reasons, Smoky Quartz is useful for helping one bring one’s most potent dreams and inspired ideas into physical reality.”
