Crystals for Grounding and Earth Connection
By Adrienne Goff, Crystal Healer at Nature's Treasures
If you have been feeling anxious, spacey, scattered, disconnected, unsafe, out of control, stuck in your head, or unable to manifest, it’s time to get grounded. Grounding is the process of connecting your energy to the planet, while bringing your consciousness more fully into your body and into the present moment.
Being grounded balances your root chakra. It gives you the power to take care of your life and to birth your higher visions, light, and offerings into the world. Come back down to Earth with the help of these four grounding stones.
Hematite: Due to its iron content, Hematite is one of the most powerful grounding stones—anchoring you firmly into your body and into the iron core of the Earth. It feels like a magnet that draws excess, stray energy from your chakras and meridians into your root and into the Earth. It clears, balances, and aligns your chakras and the layers of your aura, while sealing and protecting your energy field. With your energy system functioning optimally, it’s easier to be centered, focused, and effective in your daily life.
If you have an issue with escapism, resulting in unhealthy coping mechanisms or addictions, Hematite can help you to overcome these patterns. It’s a stone of integration and manifestation. It pulls all of your pieces together, healing and balancing them so that you can focus your light and gifts into manifestation on the physical plane.
Smoky Quartz: If the energy of Hematite feels too intense or heavy for you, grab a Smoky! Smoky Quartz grounds your energy and consciousness into your body and into the present moment, but with a lighter touch. It acts as a connector between your energy field and the Earth. Negative energy is released from your system and channeled into the planet, where it is purified and transmuted. Depression, anxiety, stress, and fear are siphoned off, resulting in a much lighter emotional state.
Smoky Quartz focuses your mind, counteracting spaciness and scattered thinking so that you can knock out your to-do list. It is also a wonderful meditation tool that clears distracting thoughts and grounds psychic impressions, visions, and information into your conscious awareness.
Petrified Wood: Trees are living examples--quietly demonstrating what it means to be deeply rooted into the Earth, while simultaneously branching and connecting with a higher energy source above. Petrified Wood is ancient tree matter that has been replaced by another mineral, usually Quartz or Agate. The crystalline material stores and carries the grounding, balancing, stabilizing energy of the tree kingdom—delivering the sense of well-being you get from hugging a tree.
Petrified Wood is known to complete the electromagnetic circuit between you and the planet, keeping you grounded and ensuring proper, balanced energy flow through your system. It gradually strengthens the physical body and steadies turbulent emotions. Petrified Wood helps you to access peace, wisdom, and patience during difficult spiritual growth periods. It can resolve root chakra imbalances, such as trust issues and poverty consciousness.
Brecciated Jasper: This dynamic grounding stone is a combination of Red Jasper and Hematite, which simultaneously activates and balances the root and sacral chakras. Red Jasper is an earthy stone that absorbs stress and negativity, clears the chakras and aura, and increases your stamina and life force energy. It helps you to honor yourself, prioritize your time and obligations, and take care of 3D business. The Hematite content provides a powerful grounding anchor that stabilizes your bio-energetic system and makes you unstoppable.
Let these grounding crystals be your rock in these uncertain times.
