Grounding crystals
Permalink Closed


Hey guys, quick question about crystals used for grounding.

I've never really gotten into crystals myself, though we have used them in reiki and I have friends who are into them. Anyways, a friend recently recommended hematite to help me ground my energy and deal with emotional swings and kundalini awakenings.

Much to my surprise, hematite definitely does work! It grounds my energy and I can feel its effects immediately.

Now with this particular crystal, it grounds my energy in a way I don't like. It makes my energy feel sluggish and low in a way that I find displeasing. Almost depressed in a sense, but not quite. I'd like to find a grounding crystal that's not only grounding, but also empowering and solid, if that makes sense, bringing clarity and openness, not cloudiness and heaviness.

Any recommendations on crystals for grounding other than hematite?

Thanks!!

Ariel

Hey Ariel! welcome to this place, great to read you here!

Thanks for your post, you know what, I know exactly what you mean about haematite, you describe it perfectly. It has a very dense, magnetic energy for me also!

Delightfully, You already have the tools you need, an attuned energy awareness, the rest it just experimentation!

Ok, so many things wanting to burst on to the page at once....there are so many things written about the metaphysical properties of crystals, with certain qualities attributed to them. And while these may be true, according to their vibration, their composition, their colour, it entirely depends on our energy and how it resonates with that individual stone or crystal...so you are already doing the most important thing, tuning in from the inside of the experience, not from a concept.

So...one way to approach it would be without any preconceived ideas and experimenting with different crystals, if you have that opportunity!
And it depends on your unique energy distribution!

Kundalini energy is such an individual experience in my view, it depends where she's at, which centres are open..the ideal i feel is to have full balance. For me and many others who are doing spiritual work, its top heavy energy all the way..the upper chakras especially the third eye are open and don't need any extra stimulation, we don't need to seek out high energy crystals we maybe need to bring it into our bodies a bit more. Sometimes crystals aren't even the way...it could be body work and getting right down into our bodies.

Can you feel how your energy is distributed around the chakras right now?

Making a generalization, to bring the energy down it's an idea to keep crystals at your feet and root chakra. And be mindful of the energy as it shifts and moves...sometimes you only need a few moments with a crystal for it to do its work....without experiencing the overload

Generally, the red brown and black stones are associated with grounding, the earth and root chakra and the roots. Stones generally have a denser and heavier vibration than crystals. So you could try a variety,

I find black tourmaline to be pretty instantly grounding, and it is also highly protective...handy if you are energetically sensitive. I use it in combo with clear quartz, it gives me that balance of grounding protection and aliveness!

Something like brown or red jasper is a gentler experience for grounding at the root chakra or feet!


Hmm...For some reason.... quartz keeps springing to mind! The way you describe the clear presence, that is exactly how I feel with plain old simple clear quartz. It lines up the chakras and the aura. For a grounding quartz, smokey quartz might be ideal ....it's gentler and has that clarity to it. Be careful not to get the irradiated stuff that is dark almost opaque, you want something like brown tinted glass!

And as if i've not yacked on enough you might want to check out the articles on grounding, cleansing choosing and programming crystals in the sticky topic at the top of this section !

By the way, grounding is a major theme for me it's kinda all over the forum in various guises...it would be interesting for you to get that feel on the inside of your energy body, and know how to ground it without crystals by just using your intent.

It's great to see you let us know how you get along.

Love and tree roots!

Ah April... heart.gif

Thank you so much for the list of suggested stones and crystals. Clear quartz was one that kept intuitively springing to mind when I was at the shop. s'funny to see you having the same experience. Thank you for that confirmation! biggrin

I love your idea of actually going in w/o any preconceived notions and finding out for myself what works best with my energy. Time to go play some more! w00t.gif

You're welcome Ariel

Have fun in the crystal shop, they can be like little alladin's caves of magic and energy!

I'm always surprised which crystal pulls me in, often not the one I'd fixed my wishes on! I use my hand hovering above the crystals and wait for the pull....

I wrote this in my stones and grounding article, in truth all crystals and stones are grounding..because they come from the earth. So they help us reconnect with that primal preformed energy too...which to me is like 'the ground of our being'!

I kind of feel they bring the heaven to the earth, bring down the light, as above so below.

If you put quartz at your feet, it brings the light down, opens and balances the lower centres, that way energy flows through your whole system in a more balanced way. The smokey quartz adds the more grounding element.

Be gentle with yourself my friend, these little but powerful transmitters pack a punch, if you have k energy moving around, you might need to just keep grounding it by touching the earth, visualizing your roots, breathing into your feet, not stimulate it. Don't know where you are with that though Ariel, but I felt the urge to say that!

I see you discovered the emoticons, that's one of my faves!

Hey, nice to meet you Ariel!!! Great photo!! :D
I know practically zilch about crystals but do LOVE the idea that they are all from the EARTH & connect us up with it. It's nice 2 imagine all the crystals in the earth & when we walk like we're connected 2 them all. Guess that could be grounding. Good luck!!! Love Chloe ^_^

Hiya Ariel, sorry it has taken me so long to welcome you! Good to have you onboard, I look forward to chatting with you.
I briefly checked out your site, I think I'm going to be spending some time there having a read.smile.gif
I get along really well with haematite, its really my only grounding crystal. I have been known to stick it in my socks! Being a relative crystals novice, my only suggestion for grounding is it really seems to matter where you place the crystal. I find it best at the feet level, at the root chakra and the energy doesn't get down the legs, not in my case anyway. smile.gif

Thanks for the continued replies. smile

Serene, the hematite actually does feel different, and interestingly a bit better, now that it's sitting in my sock. Thank you for that suggestion! It still makes me feel a bit heavy in the stomach, but it is an improvement. I'll explore other stones and mix-and-match with socks or root chakra as well. smile

Lol! Lumpy socks! not being a sock wearer, my anklets and toe rings do the job nicely!

Ariel, I'm glad the haematite feels a bit better that way, I'm sure you'll trust your instincts and there ain't no rules..if it feels wrong it feels wrong. there are plenty of other stones!

Did you cleanse it by the way? When you say heavy sensation in the stomach it reminds me of my solar plexus chakra doing the funkywunky when it's picking up on heavier energy...haematite can get very clogged very quickly with other energy and does up reflecting it back out again.

Can you tune in to that heavier feeling in your tummy and what it's about?
I'm just wondering too, if 'coming into your body' may bring up some fear..I know it sometimes has for me...so many levels and layers and our soul and spiritual levels.

There is so much said about grounding these days in spiritual circles, in kind of a one size fits all blanket approach. It's just really important, I feel, to get to grips with what is actually going on for us, and that involves some energy awareness and just going within to our inner knowing. Grounding is not meant to lower your vibration or stop you from experiencing expansiveness, in my view it's about opening to the higher levels whilst remaining fully present and aware in fully clarity here and now without floating off somewhere.

I just realized ...I never asked why you want to be grounded Ariel! Lol.

Totally agree with you Serene, placing near the feet does bring the energy further down. When doing a whole chakra spread I always place a stone at the earth chakra. Often when I meditate it's the only stone I'll place, to keep me fully present and balanced so it's like ascension with expansion, right here right now...
