Grounding is a very important thing for all of us. If you are energy sensitive you already likely know this but if you’re not grounding yourself properly, you’re really missing out.
Grounding for those who do not know is basically the act of being one with mother Earth. It is often also called Earthing and is a technique that basically includes doing things like walking outside barefoot or sitting while touching the ground and meditating through it and over your personal energies. Through this, you are able to receive the energies that the Earth itself is offering to you. It can help clear things out and relieve you of stagnant energies that might be holding you back.
Grounding overall is something that can help us in huge ways. I, however, like to ground myself using crystals. This is something that can really change the game in a big way and help you heal on a deeper level. While some of us choose specific crystals for certain different reasons, one of the best ways to decide what crystals to use is to go see which ones resonate the most with you in person before purchasing.
If you’re feeling overly emotional and all over the place, chances are you are in deep need of grounding and should be using crystals for that added boost. When using crystals all you have to do is during your meditative state use the crystals to rub on different parts of your body, touch them to the Earth, and then run them up and down your arms and legs. Do this with any area of the body you want or your aura as a whole. I know, it might look silly or sound silly to some, it can make a huge difference.
Energy Muse wrote as follows going over some of the different crystals that are best to use for this kind of thing:
Our favorites are Hematite, Smoky Quartz, and Jasper. These healing crystals are all-powerful for grounding your energy, but they have different ways of doing so—they will feel different on your body.
Hematite Stone: Hematite stone is the ultimate grounding gemstone for the body. It holds a very powerful grounding energy that literally feels like you are being sucked down into the Earth. When it touches your skin, you feel a magnetic energy that leaves you feeling more balanced, calm, and centered. Hematite stones also eliminate any negative energy within your body or energy field, drawing it from you into itself.
Shungite Stone: Shungite stone is the most powerful stone for balancing root chakra issues, which gives you a feeling of being ungrounded. It’s vital to practice root chakra balancing to have a rooted and grounded first chakra to build upon. The effectiveness of the other chakras is based upon the first. Shungite demands that you deal with your emotions, toxic mental thoughts, and anything that no longer serves you. It puts all the stuff in your face to deal with, but in return, it gives you the grace and strength to cut the energetic cords that hold you back from your personal truth and magnificence.
Jasper Stone: Since ancient times, Jasper stones have been valued for their healing and grounding energies. These healing crystals carry a very strong Earth energy, helping to deepen your personal connection with the Earth when you wear or meditate with these grounding crystals. There are many, many different types of Jasper stones, yet all carry this powerful Earth energy. Choose the ones that you are most attracted too, as those will be the most beneficial for you. We personally like the grounding energy of Red Jasper stones, as it has a re-energizing and reinvigorating effect on your body.
K2 Stone: A combination of grounding granite and celestial Azurite, the K2 stone balances our earthly experiences with our higher consciousness and connection to the universe and the heavens. Granite holds the grounding earth energy, while azurite represents a celestial experience. It is an extremely powerful way to connect to your intuition and find the balance between your intuition and your daily life.
Prasiolite Stone: Prasiolite Stone is an excellent healing stone to use to ground yourself to the energy of the Earth. Meditating while holding these stones, or simply having them in your space, facilitates a strong connection with Mother Earth, allowing for powerful healing energy to flow up through your feet to your heart. These healing stones help to remove any negative energy within your mind, body, and space, replacing it with renewed positive energy.
When it comes to grounding there are tons of different techniques out there but at the core of everything, you should do what works best for you. I like to do different things depending on how I’m feeling or if I think I am in need of a deeper healing. Overall grounding with crystals can be a very important tool for getting through things that this world throws our way.
