CRYSTALS and STONES for your ROOTS, GROUNDING and CONNECTING TO THE EARTH!

CRYSTALS and STONES for your ROOTS, GROUNDING and connecting to the EARTH



In truth, all crystals and stones can connect us to the energies of the earth by their very nature. Having been formed there, they are all intrinsically filled with the earth's vibration!

However, the properties of some stones make them particularly effective for grounding.

The darker coloured stones, black or brown, are associated with the grounding aspect of our energy body; our energetic roots, earth chakra and the root chakra. Red stones are beneficial for balancing and energizing the root chakra.

Simply holding a grounding crystal in your hand will connect you to its vibration and grounding effect.

Certain crystal placements can be useful for grounding whilst meditating, for self healing, relaxation or energy work.

Grounding stones placed at the root chakra, between and next to your feet if you are sitting in a chair, or if lying down, or even beneath the bed are all helpful for grounding energy.

Crystals and stones with grounding properties can also be worn as jewellery.
I have even been known to wear anklets and toe rings to ground energy to the lower part of my body throughout the day!

The grounding stones are particularly useful for those who have trouble bringing the light all the way down from the crown chakra, integrating spiritual with the physical realm.

Even for those who feel they are well grounded, I would still maintain that the majority of us within our modern society have a level of disconnection with our physical selves, are not entirely comfortable with and in our bodies and do not feel as if we are part of nature.

This seems to be a symptom of our society, overfocussed very much as it is on external achievements, a society very mind centred, more concerned in general if our wonderful technology fails to function at 100% efficiency, than our bodies!

As a society we have evolved further away from our connection with nature, oblivious to even the most powerful natural forces and their cycles, like the moon and sun (except to complain about the weather!)
There is a certain level of alienation from nature, or it is seen as something to be feared and therefore controlled, rather than an integration and unity with the natural world.

Fortunately, the grounding stones not only ground our energy into the earth and help us remain grounded, but bring us into connection with our bodies and with the energy and rhythms of nature of which we are part!

There is another wonderful advantage to connecting with crystals and stones for grounding in this way. Because being grounded helps us feel more in our bodies and connected to the earth, and helps to strengthen our roots and balance the earth and root chakras, these stones also help us to feel more stable, secure, safe and calm, and therefore help with reducing stress and relaxation on every level.

Many of the grounding stones are also the most protective against negative energy!



Below are some of my favourite grounding stones.


SMOKEY QUARTZ





This beautiful transparent brown coloured crystal, brings down the light to the earth, from the crown chakra to the root chakra.
Place it at the root chakra or below the feet to really ground your spiritual light.
It can also help to very gently release and cleanse blockages from the root chakra, that prevent us from feeling fully in our bodies, secure, happy and in our true earth connection.
I am very fond of smokey quartz because it is extremely grounding but also uplifting.



BLACK TOURMALINE




A highly protective and grounding black stone. For the purposes of grounding, place between the feet, or one at each foot.
This is a very conductive stone, and highly effective for grounding spiritual energy.



HAEMATITE





Another very protecting and grounding stone. The metallic sheen of haematite deflects unwanted energies which enables you to not take on other peoples emotions and helps to prevent that scattered feeling of being pulled in all directions, which is in itself very grounding.
This stone is very good at aligning the chakras and placed below the feet or at the root chakra grounds the energy.



BLACK OR MAHOGANY OBSIDIAN





Both these stones are very stabilizing and grounding, as well as being protective. Black obsidian will ground your energies and helps focus the mind and ground throughts.
Both stones help balance the qualities of the root chakra and bring stability, steadfastness and strength.





What are your favourite crystals and stones for grounding?

Great! I have some haematite but never really know exactly how to use it. I have 2 small bits so maybe I will stick one in each sock ha ha!smile.gif it also seems very do-able to place a stone between and below my feet with energy work. It is remembering!smile.gif

Thanks Rosequartz! smile.gif I have no experience of petrified wood so cannot speak of it's properties!

Moss agate I've not really considered a grounding stone but you are so right, both have that connection with the would of nature. smile.gif

Dendrite I've always understood to refer to the nature of the tree like inclusion, in dendrite agate for example, which are very root like indeed! Especially grounding if you had something like a dendritic haematite inclusion?smile.gif

Serene, I think sticking a piece of haematite in your socks is a great idea! as long as it doesn't hurt!wink.gifbiggrin.gif

Well I have been using my haematite a bit and remembering to cleanse it as well, but I didn't stick it down my socks in the end a bit to lumpy. smile.gif I have been feeling a bit more "with it" after energy work.
Those pictures of the dendrite agate are spectacular Rosequartz! Do you have some and does it make you feel grounded? I can't see how petrified wood can have much in the way of metaphysical properties but then again I have a nice branch in my room that makes me feel connected to the woodland it comes from.smile.gif
