Empathy and Crystals
I have found certain crystal that have been beneficial to my empathy. They are Citrine and Breacceated Jasper. I am more partial to citrine since it never has to be cleaned but the breacceated jasper was recommended to me by someone at a shop in the spiritualist town of Cassadaga.
Properties of Citrine
This wonderful stone is associated with the Solar Plexus and it DISSIPATES all kinds of negative energies (clears the aura of negative energies and influences). The awesome thing about this stone is that it DOES NOT absorb any negative energy and therefore never has to be cleaned. Not only can it be used to clear negative energy for its environment but also family issues caused by negative issues are resolved and cleared by this little gem.
Citrine also relieves depression, anger and irrational mood swings. It is also good for dream recall and dream work and I can attest to that. When I place citrine under my pillow at night I have a much easier time recalling dreams but holding on to them longer after I awake.
Properties of Brecciated Jasper (also known as Brecceated and Bracciated Jasper)
If you want stone which will help to keep your feet solidly on the ground, promoted tranquility and wholeness then this is the stone for you. Although I need to look into it further I have also read that it is a dream inducer stone. I will have to actually test that to tell you if I think it is true however.
This form of jasper contains hematite and is the reason it has grounding properties. It is said to encourage empathy and communication with animals.
I hope this information was helpful. If you are an empath who have found a crystal to be helpful to you please post a comment so other can know as well. Thanxs! Smile!
