There are many different kinds of negativity. Some people carry negative energy with them and pass it on when you come into contact with them. Certain objects can contain negative energy, too, and there are often negative energies in the home that need to be taken care of.
The benefit of spiritual protection is that it enables you to remove any negative energy so you can keep your purity.
There are some truly excellent spiritually protection techniques that all awakened people should practice. Let’s take a look.

4. SEA SALT – THE ULTIMATE PURIFIER
Sea salt is one of the world’s best natural purifiers.
I’m sure you will agree with me that the ocean is one of the most beautiful things on Earth, and is the source of great insight and power (especially for Pisces like me).
There are very many ways in which sea salt is used for healing. It has historically been used to clean wounds, and it can be used for spiritual protection, too. For instance, there is the spiritual practice of burying objects in sea salt to clear away negative energy.
Sea salt is readily available at all most health food stores. Pick a high quality sea salt that is unrefined.
When you have some unrefined sea salt, hold it in both hands and focus on its energy.
5. MEDITATING WITH CRYSTALS AND GEMSTONES
There are many ways to use crystals and gemstones for protection. For instance, you might like to wear a mala (prayer beads) made from obsidian (which is a great stone for protection).
We can also gain spiritual protection through meditating with crystals. When we meditate with a crystal we invite the energy of the crystal into our spirit. Refer to the link above for a complete tutorial on how to do this.
6. CONTACT YOUR GUARDIAN ANGEL
One of the best sources of spiritual protection is from your guardian angel. Your guardian angel is assigned to you as a guide and protector to help you through hard times in your life and to work with you for spiritual development. But it takes a little effort to see and to contact your guardian angel.
You might like to meditate on your guardian angel in order to gain their protection.
- Sit quietly somewhere peaceful
- Take 10 deep breaths to relax
- Listen to the world around you
- Ask your guardian angel to step forward. Invite them into your room
- You may see them, or you may feel them. Either way, meditate on the positive energy that they bring to you. Feel that energy with you, protecting you.
- Express gratitude to your guardian angel for being there in your life.
7. SPIRITUAL OBJECTS FOR PROTECTION
Throughout the ages, humans have used specific spiritual objects for protection and to eliminate negative energy. From the Holy Cross to statues of gargoyles, there are many different objects used for spiritual protection.
Choose from the following objects, and incorporate them into your home.
- Crystals and gemstones (see above)
- Gargoyle statues
- Statues of Durga (Hindu goddess of protection and destroyer of evil—available on Amazon)
8. USE ABHAYA MUDRA FOR PROTECITON
Mudras are hand gestures that create spiritual or psychological effects in the practitioner. You can learn all about this in my big guide to mudras.
There are over a hundred major mudras in use today, many of which originate in Buddhism.
The Abhaya mudra is a mudra used to repel fear and to protect us from negative energy.
Here’s how to do it:
Hold your hand at shoulder height with the palm facing outwards.
It is usual for the opposite hand to be positioned in the gift-giving mudra (varada).
Read our guide to Varada mudra so you know how to hold the other hand.
These spiritual protection techniques clear negative energy from the spirit and they purify our homes.
Each of these techniques helps us maintain spirituality purity and protect us from evil.
