EMF protection crystals are beginning to interest more people because of the large number of electronic devices that are being used that emit EMF's.
EMF stands for electromagnetic fields and the health issue related to reactions to EMF's is commonly called electrical sensitivity.
I have taken an interest in this as I became electrically sensitive a couple of years ago so I found that it was necessary to find ways to deal with the electromagnetic smog coming from devices I was using.
As I use crystals as much as possible to assist any type of health problem, it made sense to find crystals or stones to help to mitigate EMFs.
As part of my research I discovered that this problem is becoming a lot more common and whether you actually have this health issue or not, it is beneficial to educate yourself.
The meaning of the term EMF comes from the two words electromagnetic fields.
EMF's or electromagnetic fields can be found in many places and some are strong EMF fields and others are very weak.
The number of devices continues to grow and it is now common for most people to be surrounded by large amounts of electromagnetic smog, both at home and in their work places.
Electromagnetic radiation is emitted by many devices, but in particular mobile phones, tablets, laptops, computers and wi-fi as well microwave ovens and some newer TV's.
It is now quite common to hear about the dangers of using mobile phones next to your head.
Most people are now aware of this and have changed the way they use their phones, making sure they use a headphone instead of holding it to the ear.
If you are a person who loves crystals it is obvious that you would choose to use them, to help with the healing of any type of health issue.
This is especially so when you feel that electrically sensitivity has begun to bother you or if you know that you are using a lot of devices such as those mentioned above.
When I became sensitive to EMF's I started investigating the healing attributes of various stones and looking at the benefits of crystals to see which ones were the best healing crystals for EMF's.
There are a number of EMF protection crystals that are highly beneficial to either mitigate EMFs, eliminate or reduce the level of electromagnetic smog that may be impacting you.
There are quite a few stones that are known to help the body to naturally heal the effects of electrical sensitivity, as well as quite a few that will help to block EMF's.
Some are well known crystals that are useful to keep near your devices, such as Black Tourmaline. You may also find that these crystals are highly beneficial when kept on the body.
There are also a number of other suggestions for averting the affects of EMF's. Checkout more tips for managing sensitivity to EMF's.
Perhaps you are wondering if you have electrical sensitivity? It can be difficult to be sure if its related to being ungrounded, or if your issues are caused by electromagnetic sensitivity.
There are quite a few symptoms of electromagnetic sensitivity and some indicators of this health problem are also on my list of symptoms of being ungrounded.
There are a number of common symptoms of electromagnetic sensitivity, and some people experience all or just some of them. Lets start by looking at some of the symptoms that are also on the list of symptoms of being ungrounded.
There are also a number of symptoms of electromagnetic sensitivity that are not related to being ungrounded:
If you are using the devices mentioned above, you are probably surrounded by continuous high levels of electromagnetic smog.
They are now everywhere in our society so it may not matter if you are using them yourself as your neighbors devices may still affect you. These symptoms can be very uncomfortable and concerning if you are not aware of what is causing them.
If you find that you suffer from any of these health issues when you are using one of the devices discussed above, it may be worth reading more about the health issues related to EMF's.
Many people find that earthing themselves can help their electrical sensitivity and lower the risk of suffering ongoing symptoms.
Doing a grounding meditation can also be helpful and it may help you to use both grounding crystals and EMF protection crystals.
Some stones do both and Shungite is a powerful stone to help you. Walking barefoot on the earth can help you to discharge built up electricity in the body, and making an earth connection can be highly beneficial.

Both Chlorite Phantom Quartz and Smokey Quartz are also EMF protection crystals that may be useful to assist your symptoms.
Only use them if there are no devices on nearby as they can boost the EMF's you are receiving.
All types of quartz have strong amplification properties, and may amplify the emanations of the devices, giving you a stronger dose of EMF's, so it valuable to avoid that.
Although there are quite a few photos of EMF protection crystals above, to make it easier I have compiled a list of the most effective stones for this purpose here.
Checkout the links to the pages of those that have had an in-depth article written about them.
Shungite, Black Tourmaline, Fulgurite, Eucryptite, Aventurine, Aegirine, Black Moonstone, Fluorite, Amazonite and Flint are all helpful for healing the effects of EMF's.
I keep a couple of pieces of Black Tourmaline next to my computer, and a big chunk on my bedside table, as it has a unique ability to transmute or alter negative energy into positive energy.
While Magnetite, Hematite and Pyrite are commonly recommended for this purpose, please note that its not a good idea to use them next to some devices as they can cause the device to malfunction.
Orgonite can also be helpful, and where possible see if you can get an orgonite that contains one of the EMF protection crystals, to double up on the protective qualities.
Checkout the two books below for more information on how to deal with electrical sensitivity.
Judy Halls book Crystal Prescriptions: Crystal Solutions to Electromagnetic Pollution and Geopathic Stress is a very helpful guide to assist you if you are sensitive to EMF's.
Take a look at my review of Crystal Prescriptions Volume Three to learn more.
In this guide, Judy Hall also discusses the use of Petaltone essence for electrical sensitivity.
You can also learn about a number of other excellent essences made by David Eastoe, including essences for cleansing crystals.
Here is the link to the Petaltone UK Website (he also has a US website) and look for the essence known as EMF Protect as it very effective to aid EMF sensitivity.
The Australian bush flower essence Electro Essence also works very well to assist electrical sensitivity.
I have these two essences on hand and use them if I am going into places where there are large numbers of mobile phones being used.
As I am also a dedicated user of crystals and stones, I have searched for crystals that would help
me. You may find that Judy Halls book mentioned above will be very beneficial to read if you have electrical sensitivity.
I found quite a few EMF Protection Crystals and although I had some already, I made sure I had jewelry made from them so I could wear them every day.
Black Tourmaline, Amazonite, Aegirine and Shungite are all fairly easy to obtain as jewelry. If not, just put a piece in your pocket during the day and at night put it on the bedside or under the pillow.
Here are some of the ideas that are commonly suggested that help to avert electrical sensitivity and if you already have some symptoms may help to prevent it getting worse.
Start by putting together a plan of action to lower your risk and work towards creating a safer home environment.

Got wifi? If you already have symptoms, it may be beneficial to turn off the wi-fi on your router and connect it to your computer or laptop using a cable.
Even if you do not have electrical sensitivity, make sure you turn off your wi-fi at night while you are sleeping.
Its easy to do using an automatic switching device on the power point, (most hardware stores have these) so you don't have to remember.
Do not sleep with your phone in your bedroom, and if possible either turn it off or turn it onto airplane mode, to prevent it from continuously broadcasting all the time.
If you do choose to use a mobile, you can get Shungite plates to put on your phone to help you.
Its also of value to make sure that you remove electronic devices from your bedroom, such as electric clocks. If that isn't possible move them as far as possible away from your bed.
I have devices fitted to my house that cut the power on the light and power circuits when the last device is turned off so I don't have power running in the bedroom.
A good nights sleep is very important to aid electromagnetic hypersensitivity.
