Earth chakra stones have strong properties to keep you grounded and protected, and to secure your aura within the physical world. Many of your day to day activities have the potential to unground you.
Using computers for long periods of time, driving around in your vehicle, and having no real contact with the earth, can make you very ungrounded.
The way many people live their lives today combined with the use of high crystal energy stones for spiritual work can easily make you ungrounded.
So afterwards it is best to make sure that you ground yourself quickly. Spiritual grounding is easy and may help those of you who are doing spiritual development or psychic work.
The use of one of the specific crystals talked about in this article, that resonate within the earth star chakra may be beneficial to quickly ground you.
After intense spiritual experiences, you may be unaware that you have a build up of energy in your body, and that you need to release this energy.
In the twenty-first century, we live our lives on a day to day basis quite differently to the past. The pace of life means that we often do things that may unground us.
One way to help yourself is to carry or wear earth chakra stones within your aura. That way when you become ungrounded you may use them to aid you to ground quickly.
It is easy to buy Black Kyanite, and it is helpful for grounding you, and has the added advantage of aligning your chakras. It is highly recommended that you use Black Kyanite, before you use any other stones.
For earth star grounding and protection, many of the black gemstones are highly beneficial. The list of stones for this chakra is quite long, so it is located at the end of this article.
You may already have some of the stones that are on the list below, and if you do will be able to make use of them immediately.
The colors for the earth star chakra stones is traditionally black and dark brown, but there are other crystals that are helpful for or all of the chakras, including this chakra.
The energy of stones of the darker colors, such as black or brown are very grounding, and they are often powerful psychic protection stones.
All black and brown stones will aid you, but some stones seem to be more popular, and having one or more of the stones for grounding and protection within your aura at all times is essential.
Many earth chakra stones are easy to obtain as tumblestones, and this makes it easy to put one or more of the grounding stones in your pocket every day.
Black stones like Black Obsidian Stone or Black Diopside, shown above as well as brown crystals like the Chiastolite Pendant shown below, make up most of the chakra stones for this area.
Chiastolite is also known as Cross Stone, and is a popular stone that naturally carries a cross within it. Because of the cross, in the past people believed that it was very powerful and highly protective, which it is.
Wear any of the earth star chakra stones as jewelry. These darker crystals are quite attractive and many of the black gemstones are very beautiful.
When choosing stones for jewelry, black stones are popular as they can easily be worn with most colors of clothing.
Black crystals have an advantage that if you make them into gemstone bead necklaces they can be mixed with most colors. This provides the metaphysical vibration and its advantages, as well as matching your clothing.
Lovely pieces of jewelry made from Black Tourmaline, like this lovely pendant made from Australian Black Tourmaline from the Flinders Ranges, are quite beautiful.
This stone is one of the most effective stones, as it works for both spiritual grounding and protection.
If the way you live your life means that you get easily ungrounded, make sure you have a few under your pillow at night. While you sleep they will do their work.
There are members of the devic kingdom that resonate with earth chakra energy, and these beings want to interact with you. They love to help people, if you are open to it.
While there are some lovely heart chakra stones that will also make a connection to elemental beings, many of the earth chakra stones also attract them to you.
