EMF Blocking Crystals – Everything You Need To Know

“Crystals have the property of being able to stabilize and amplify our energy fields or any energy fields’

– Joe Hall,

Hi lovelies and welcome to Wicca Now. Recently I’ve been talking a lot about crystals, like this post about how to cleanse your crystals, one about crystal correspondences, a post teaching you how to charge your crystals and a post detailing crystals for each zodiac sign. Today I thought we’d cover something that’s been increasingly on my mind, namely, EMF blocking crystals.

We must share the standard disclaimer that we are not doctors and cannot give out medical advice. Crystals for healing should be used only as a complement to other therapies and not as a replacement for regular medical care and or medication. Please always consult a medical professional.

What is EMF?

“Electromagnetic fields (EMF) are generated in the vicinity of power lines, mobile phones, mobile phone towers, broadcast towers and similar transmitters”

Like many of you, I spend the majority of my working life sitting behind a computer screen. Opening up my wifi preferences generally showcases no less than 30 available wifi networks. Power lines and wireless data loops criss-cross and incircle the visible and invisible spaces around me.

According to Healthline, “it turns out that our cellphones, microwaves, Wi-Fi routers, computers, and other appliances send out a stream of invisible energy waves”. These waves, call electronic magnetic fields or EMF’s permeate the working, living and sleeping spaces of most modern humans.

With so much electronic EMF ‘smog’ circulating through the spaces where we work, sleep and eat, its no wonder that some experts are beginning to express concern about the longterm effects EMF pollution. According to the World Health Organisation, EMF’s are ‘possibly carcinogenic to humans’

So, how can we protect ourselves from electromagnetic pollution? Apart from the impossible suggestion of removing all electrical devices and moving to a secluded countryside location where wifi network coverage is limited, could be possible to protect against EMF pollution through the use of certain ‘EMF blocking’ crystals?

EMF Blocking Crystals Explained

“Concerns about electromagnetic fields (EMF) are branded pseudoscientific conspiracy theories and relegated to the realm of tin-hat wearing quackery. However, a recent publication in the peer-reviewed journal Immunologic Research entitled “Electrosmog and Autoimmune Disease,” sheds new light on the validity of concerns about this so-called electrosmog with which we are constantly inundated”

Although at this time no conclusive scientific evidence concerning the effectiveness of crystals against EMF pollution exists, anecdotal evidence suggests that certain crystals could be effective in terms of providing protection from EMF smog.

Again, according to anecdotal evidence, crystals can create subtle energy grids which can help to shield your body from EMF pollution.

The theory as to how crystals can protect against EMF pollution postulates that certain crystals, for example, shungite, shieldite and fulgarite are able, on account of their unique molecular structure,  to absorb and hold pollutants. This theory states that these crystals are able to absorb both energetic and substance-based pollutants, and it is the crystals ability to absorb and hold these pollutants which shields and protects us from EMF’s.

Another argument for using crystals to protect from EMF radiation states that crystals can compensate for the detrimental effects of EMF pollution on the body by harmonising and rebalancing the bodies energy field. According to this theory, wearing crystals or carrying them on your person can make an enormous difference in how your body is able to cope with and respond to EMF pollution.

What Are The Best EMF Blocking Crystals?

Because each body is different there is no singular ‘best’ crystal to block EMF. Some crystals have a much finer vibration than others and ‘intuitively’ (letting your intuition guide your crystal choice) choosing a crystal to work with might prove more effective than simply going by a ‘list’ of recommended crystals.

That being said, Shungite probably provides the most comprehensive protection against EMF’s due to its unique molecular structure which may have the ability to capture and hold pollutants. For a list of other crystals which assist with EMF’s please consult the table below.

Table Of EMF Blocking Crystals

AmazoniteAmazonite cleans the air through a filtering action. Place a piece near your computer or tap a small stone to the back of your cellphone
AmethystAmethyst helps to regulate the bodies energy field which can be a helpful defence against EMF pollution. Place a piece of amethyst near your bed to help ward off EMF induced insomnia
AragoniteBrown aragonite has a strong grounding and stabilizing energy. Work with brown aragonite to help provide a calming and grounding energy and to lessen overall sensitivity to EMF’s
AventurineAventurine absorbs electromagnetic smog and diffuses negative energy. Tape a small piece to the back of your phone and place crystals around your home to absorb EMF radiation
Black TourmalineBlack tourmaline is a piezoelectric stone meaning it generates its own weak electrical current. This current helps to neutralize electromagnetic smog. Place pieces of black tourmaline around your home or use it as the central stone in a crystal grid to protects against EMF radiation.
FlintFlint has strong protective and harmonising energies which can be used to shield against EMF’s. Large pieces of flint placed around the home provide excellent protection from electromagnetic pollution
FluoriteThe healing and cleansing energies of fluorite make it an excellent protective stone against EMF radiation
HaliteHalite is a powerful purifying stone. Cleanse your own energy by placing pieces of halite in your bathwater
HematiteHematites stong grounding frequency helps to maintain the bodies own energy levels. This, in turn, could help to reduce EMF related stress
Iron PyriteIron Pyrite blocks negative energy and pollutants at all levels. Use pyrite to create a strong energy shield against EMF radiation
JasperJasper helps to draw toxins out of the body and harmonises energies. Use jasper to help negate the detrimental effects of EMF pollution by carrying a piece in your pocket
KunziteKunzite has powerful protective energy which helps to alleviate stress. Yellow kunzite especially deflects radiation. Wear a piece of yellow kunzite to protect against EMF radiation
LepidoliteA great stone for clearing EMF radiation. Place near computers and cellphone and carry a piece in your pocket.
ObsidianObsidian can be extremely effective in soaking up environmental pollution. Use the stone in energy grids with quartz and tourmaline to provide extra protection against EMF radiation
OrgoniteOrgonite is made up of various types of different crystals. Use it to shield from EMF radiation by placing pieces near your workspace and bed.
QuartzBecause quartz is composed of silica it is especially effective in clearing EMF smog. Quartz is also a piezoelectric stone meaning it creates its own electrical current. Place quartz between you and the EMF emitting device for maximum protection
RhodonziteRhodonzite is a powerful general healer which will boost the effectiveness of other EMF blocking crystals. Work with rhodonzite in protective grids or place it within clusters of other EMF blocking stones.
Rose QuartzA beautifully gentle and loving stone, rose quartz is also extremely effective at blocking EMF radiation.
ShungiteShungite is the stone of choice for all things related to EMF protection. Because shungite contains virtually all of the minerals on the periodic table it possesses a unique shielding and protective energy. Shungite is composed of ‘fullerenes’ which appear to have powerful antioxidative properties. According to studies carried out by the Ukrainian Academy of Medical Science, patients who had undergone radiation therapy and were given shungite water to drink healed at a much faster rate than patients who did not drink the water. Shungite has been proven to reduce oxidative stress and to protect against UVBA radiation. Research has also shown that shungite absorbs all that which is hazardous to health, be it EMF radiation, harmful bacteria and pollutants. Drinking shungite infused water could have a powerful healing effect on the body. To protect against EMF radiation, drink shungite infused water, place shungite stones throughout your home and carry pieces of shungite with you. Note: Because shungite absorbs so many pollutants make sure to regularly cleanse your stones!
Smoky quartzSmoky quartz is a strong healing stone and can help to transform negative energy into a more positive one. Place pieces of smoky quartz around your workspace or bed to shield you from EMF radiation.

How To Use EMF Blocking Crystals

EMF blocking crystals can be used in a number of different ways, depending on what suits you the best. An easy way to benefit from the EMF blocking qualities of certain crystals is to simply carry a stone in your pocket. You might also like to wear a stone as an amulet or in the form of a ring etc.

You can also place EMF blocking crystals around your home, concentrating on areas where the EMF radiation is likely to be the highest ie, your work or office space and around the wifi router. Another great tip is to place EMF blocking crystals such as shungite and smoky quartz around the four corners of your bed to protect you from EMF radiation throughout the night.

You can also attach a piece of shungite or tourmaline directly onto the EMF emitting device. For example, stick a crystal onto the back of your mobile phone, laptop or onto the base of your cordless phone hub.

Note: If your crystal has a face, point this towards the direction you wish the energy to flow. For example, if there is a large EMF emitting source near your house, point a large tourmaline or smoky quartz towards it. This might deflect and neutralise the EMF pollution.

Healing Layouts With EMF Blocking Crystals

Every particular in nature, a leaf, a drop, a crystal, a moment of time is related to the whole, and partakes of the perfection of the whole.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Because crystals are very effective when placed in groups, clusters or grids you might like to consider a crystal layout for blocking EMF pollution.

Healing Layouts With EMF Blocking Crystals – Outdoor Layouts

Placing crystals around the outside of your home is one method of working with crystals to block EMF radiation. Please note: if you are intending to leave the stones outside for an extended duration of time or planning to bury the stones it is to be expected that some stones will dissolve or shatter.

To create an outdoor grid decide where you want to place the stones through dowsing or simply by selecting all four corners around the perimeter of your home.

Cleanse your stones and state your intention. For example ‘I am protected from all negative influences’

Place or bury the stones in their designated positions. Make sure to leave a marker if you are burying the stones so that they can be periodically dug up cleansed.

Healing Layouts With EMF Blocking Crystals – Crystal Grids

Using crystal grids might make your crystals even more powerful

Crystals placed in a simple grid pattern around your home can create an energetic energy field which might help to purify and heal your own energies.

Before placing any crystals its useful to do a short meditation to ensure that your own energies are at their optimum. Keep your thoughts calm and focused whilst placing the grid and try to bring only positive energy to the task.

The easiest grid shape to work with is the square. To work with a square grid, for example around your bed, simply place a suitable crystal at each of the bed’s four corners and join the points of the crystals by imagining a stream of energy connecting them.

A triangle grid also works great for the bedroom. You will need three activated and cleansed crystals. Place one crystal at the head of your bed and the other two below your feet or in the corners of the bedroom. Again, connect the crystals by imagining a stream of energy creating a grid between them.

Another crystal grid pattern to try is a zig-zag pattern. For this, you will need 8 or more cleansed and activated crystals. The zig-zag pattern is a powerful energy amplifier and you might like to alternate high vibration crystals such as selenite with cleansing stones such as shungite. Lay the stones in a zig-zag pattern so that the crystals touch the walls of either side of the room you are working in. Again, connect the grid by visualising a powerful stream of energy flowing between the crystals in a zig-zag shape.

Note: remember to cleanse your crystals regularly

Until next time and as always, BLESSED BE!
