The Gypsy’s Tricks for Spiritual Cleansing and Protection: Smoky Quartz

Smoky QuartzStones and crystals are regarded as seeds of power. Carry them on your person, or keep them in your home to add their unique vibration to the aura of whatever they interact with. They carry specific spiritual/energetic vibrations that can be used by anyone for a number of reasons.

Smoky Quartz is one of my favorite stones for spiritual protection. Smoky Quartz is translucent rock crystal that comes in varying shades of deep, tinted browns, and blacks. Just like other types of Quartz, it is found in points, clusters and tumbled.

Its presence is very grounding and often makes you feel calm, centered and focused. Because it’s energy is smooth, warm and enveloping it is easy for most people to befriend, and make a deep connection. I consider it an essential crystal to have in your tool kit! 

For centuries it has been regarded as a crystal of protection. It wards off negativity and harm, and adds a durable shield around a person’s aura. By keeping a piece of Smoky Quartz in your pocket, in a pouch, or pendent you will fortify your energy field and keep icky things at bay. This is ideal for extremely crowded settings, such as social events, work offices, or any other populated location.

Holding a crystal in your hand will allow you to neutralize any crazy chaotic energies that are floating around in your system, and help you to find equilibrium. It seems to work wonders for anxiety, and stomach issues. You can use Smoky Quartz for the sacral chakra, which is our energetic processing center, or where “gut feelings” occur!

Keeping a piece of Smoky Quartz in your home will act as a protective ward. This will keep stray energy, astral sludge, and other unwanted spiritual visitors from hanging around your home. I like to keep a Smoky Quartz point in each room, or around the perimeter of the home. This will make a protective force field that surrounds your home, and property.

If you are like me, then you LOVE a good soak in the tub. Spiritual cleansing baths are a practical way to keep your aura strong and healthy. Add a handful of sea salt, and a Smoky Quartz point to your bath water and soak for 15 minutes. This will draw stray energy from your aura, and boost your protective barrier.

Smoky Quartz is also a very helpful stone in dealing with rough situations, challenges and loss. Working with this stone will ease the pain of grief and loss, and it will begin to transform negativity, pain and shadows into a positive, radiant, and vital vibration!

You may want to keep a piece of Smoky Quartz around if you’ve recently lost a loved one, doing shadow or, or dealing with spirit contact and communication. This will allows you to process energies easily without fear of harm, or attracting unwanted energies.

The Gypsy’s Tricks for Spiritual Cleansing and Protection: The Broom Charm

Traditionally the broom or besom was used as a tool of spiritual cleansing and protection in folk magic. The broom has become an icon of the witch, as well as the symbol of cleansing itself.

People would fasten springs of angelica to the staff of a rounded broom and hang it in the main room of their home as a charm against negativity. 

Another powerful form of protection was to lay the broom across the threshold of your home when you were away, as it created a barrier, which unwanted harm could not cross.

To cleanse a room of negative energy sweep from west to east. This moves negativity from the space leaving it spiritually sound. As you sweep visualize dark, sludgy energy being brushed away with the dirt. Seal the working by seeing the room filled with white light.
