10 Best Grounding Crystals and Stones
Grounding is the felt sense of the current moment reality of your physical body in time and space. To be grounded means to not be lost in thoughts or feelings, and to be aware of the physical context you are in. If you are and empath or are prone to feeling lost, confused, overwhelmed by negative energy, or "floaty", holding a healing crystal can help bring you back to Earth. Staying grounded is an essential part of metaphysical work and emotional healing.
How do you ground yourself with grounding crystals or gemstones? Find somewhere quiet that is free of unwanted energies. Being in the healing energy of nature is ideal, but wherever you are, close your eyes or turn your focus inward. Hold your grounding crystal, take a deep breath, and feel the sensations of your stone in your hands and your feet on the ground. Name objects you see and sounds you hear until you feel your body and mind settle down. You can also regularly use these stones in crystal healing meditation to increase your overall spiritual grounding. They all nourish your lower chakras.
