Astral projection can be daunting and often difficult so anything that can make your journey easier is worth doing and using crystals for astral projection can shortcut a lot of the common problems. Crystals can help get us results faster (I know exactly how frustrating it can be when you’re getting started) and they can also keep you safe while on your astral journey.
Our 4 crystals for astral projection are blue calcite, black tourmaline, amethyst, and rose quartz. Each of these crystals has its own unique attributes that make them well suited to astral projection and other out-of-body experiences.
During astral travel, a low vibration will attract low vibration entities while a higher vibration attracts (you guessed it) higher vibration entities. Not only does this help us avoid unpleasantness but it’s a lot easier to begin and maintain a successful astral projection and crystals can give us such an advantage here. I’ll show you my picks for which crystals to use and you really don’t need any active ritual here. Just having them in your space is enough.
While we have covered crystals for lucid dreaming but there is a difference. I know beliefs here can vary (I personally believe there’s a big difference between actual astral projection and lucid dreaming) but our goals on how we use the crystals definitely vary.
My Best Crystals for Astral Projection
Opaque blue and dreamy, blue calcite is considering a great astral stone for the massive amount of positive energy it gives off, while also helping to banish negative energy that might be holding an astral traveler back.
Even you if feel ready and prepared to astral project, your subconscious mind can still harbor negativity that you aren’t even aware is there. Blue calcite can wash away even these hidden evil energies, leaving both your conscious mind and subconscious mind ready to project.
Blue calcite is also known for being an energetic stone. It can seem counterproductive to feel energetic before astral travel since it requires you to sleep, but astral travel is a huge energy drain. Having a good energy level before you begin helps not only fuel your journey but keep away evil energies that may try to find their way into you during astral travel.
So if you’re feeling a little drained, blue calcite may be the answer to your problems!
Instead of giving you the energy to fly high, black tourmaline is a protective stone that will keep you safe during even the most long-distance astral travels.
Your spirit, or astral body, is more vulnerable when it’s away from your physical body. Your spirit utilizes your physical body to stay grounded to the Earth, so when separated, your spirit can feel lost or unconnected. These uncertainties leave us open to invasion by evil or negative energies.
Keeping black tourmaline on or around you during astral projection will keep your astral body feeling grounded even in the spirit realms. It’s just like carrying a little piece of the Earth with you, meaning you never lose that Earthly connection. It’s truly a powerhouse of a protection crystal!
As a protection stone, black tourmaline also creates a shield around the astral body to block any wayward negative energies, making black tourmaline an awesome stone when it comes to astral projection crystals.
Amethyst is most commonly known as a healing stone. This beautiful purple crystal is almost always kept in the arsenals of avid crystal users for its versatility, but can it help with astral projection, too?
Absolutely! This versatile crystal is famously useful in preparing one for astral projection. An astral travel gemstone doesn’t always have to facilitate the actual act of astral projection. Starting with a clean consciousness and spiritual vibration is crucial for this sort of travel, and amethyst is to frontrunner when it comes to cleansing and healing.
Wear your amethyst as jewelry or having a relaxing pre-bedtime soak with amethyst in your bathwater so gently cleanse your spirit of any pesky negative entities that may be hanging around. You’ll be amazed at the difference a quick soul healing can make!
There are hundreds of different reasons that one may choose to astral project, and just like in all other aspects of the human experience, love can be a driving factor in astral travel, too.
Crystal experts agree that rose quartz, with its gentle, feminine energy, is the best crystal when it comes to opening your heart. The opposite of love is fear, and surrounding yourself with the loving glow of rose quartz’s energy can help you banish that fear and enjoy your astral travels to the fullest.
The best part is that rose quartz is stronger under the light of the moon, and most people seeking astral travel do so at night. Allow your rose quartz to soak in the light of the moon on a window sill near where you plan to seek astral projection and experience an open heart as you’ve never had before.
How Crystals Can Improve Astral Projection
Astral projection can be achieved without crystals, but it can be more difficult and time-consuming. Most beginners give up long before they get beyond that familiar ‘buzzing’ feeling (often the hardest stage to overcome).
There are three main ways that crystals can improve astral projection: Restfulness, Awareness, and Insight.
Crystals can also promote more restful sleep. If you toss and turn all night long, astral projection and lucid dreaming are going to be hard to achieve. Slipping the right crystal under your pillow while you rest can turn a frustratingly unproductive night into a restful astral travel experience.
Lucid dreaming and astral travel can be voluntary or involuntary. Most people seek out voluntary astral projection, but even voluntary astral projection can seem less than stellar if you can’t remember what happened. Certain crystals can help you to maintain awareness during your astral travel and to remember what you experienced when you wake up.
The third thing crystals can do to help improve astral projection is sharpen your insight. Astral projection and lucid dreaming can be confusing, especially if you’re new to the art. The sights that you see and the messages you receive may benefit from some clarifying, and that’s where crystals come in. They can help you to unravel your complex visions and make sense of them.
Using Crystals to Astral Project
Astral travel is a high-level form of the spiritual journey and can be intimidating or hard to accomplish for some. Including crystals as you master astral travel can make it easier and more accessible. The best part is you really don’t have to do anything specific. I would suggest at least cleansing and charging your crystals over time as you continue your practice and (perhaps most importantly) you still shouldn’t expect to become a master overnight.
Astral projection is still a difficult task to learn (for most) but I can guarantee you the results are worth it.
Slip your chose crystal under your pillow and have a safe journey. Happy (astral) travels!
