Grounding stones can help you if you are working on your spirituality or on developing psychic gifts.
If you are doing any sort of spiritual work, you will open your higher chakras as you open to the Divine Source.
But once open they need to be closed, so that you are able to function normally.
Working to develop gifts such as psychic knowing, psychic visions or clairvoyant abilities can cause you to become ungrounded.
This is also often the case if you are using any of the many high vibration stones or crystals, as they can make you extremely ungrounded when you simply hold one of them in your hand.
Spiritual grounding is extremely important and although many people are not aware of the value of making sure you ground yourself, it is of value to look at reasons why grounding can help you.
So how do you use grounding stones?
Using any of the stones listed here for aiding grounding is easy. Just hold one of them in your hand for a few minutes.
You will probably feel the difference quite quickly. It is so simple!
Their energy will move from the stone and out into your body and will then flow out into your auric field. If you have been ungrounded for a while you may need to hold them for longer.
If you are doing any type of spiritual work it is best to make sure that you ground yourself often, and quickly.
This is important to aid spiritual healing and there are a number of ways that you can do this, including using crystals.
While this will happen naturally after some time, I personally find that by having specific crystals within my aura, it naturally happens fairly rapidly and the spaciness is quickly relieved.
Remember to make sure you ground yourself afterwards, if you are working on developing specific gifts.
This includes working to develop abilities such as clairsentience (also known as clear feeling) or psychic
hearing, (also known as clairaudience) or any of the range of psychic abilities.
When you are working with high vibration stones in meditation, you may use specific healing crystals for you to develop these gifts, and many have a powerful vibration which often can make you very ungrounded.
While high vibration crystals are marvelous stones to work with, just be aware of whether they have made you ungrounded.
There are a number of ways you can do this, some take more time than others. One way is to carry or wear strong grounding stones in your pocket, or wear them as jewelry.
Spiritual grounding is extremely important, even crucial to prevent health problems and it is easy to do.
Black Tourmaline, seen in image below, is a stone that I highly recommend that you keep on you or close by at all times, for both spiritual grounding and protection.
This is especially important as it also has a strong vibration to aid psychic protection and in addition it is one of the strongest grounding stones.
Black Tourmilated Quartz has similar qualities, and the addition of the quartz makes these powerful stones to bring light into your auric field, to aid your lightbody.
If you look at the list below you will see a range of spiritual grounding stones, and many of these have both of these important qualities, an important attribute that will be of great benefit to you.
The strong grounding stones that are also highly protective are highly beneficial crystals for you to use. Black Andradite Garnet is a particularly helpful stone to use as it is also highly protective.
Black Diopside (pictured at the top of the page) is another powerful stone that aids grounding. Black Diopside has many powerful attributes including helping you make contact with Mother Gaia.
By looking at the other aspects of many of these stones, you may discover additional reasons why you might choose to use a particular one.
If you are an metaphysical or alchemical healer or natural therapist of any sort, keep at least one grounding crystal on you while you are doing treatments.
There are many black crystals that you may utilize, like Black Obsidian, see image above, that are powerful stones to use for this purpose.
Boji Stone, Fire Agate, Red Jasper, Black Diopside, Mahogany Obsidian, Moss Agate, Shungite, Smokey Quartz Crystals and Turquoise are all excellent stones to keep on you to assist with spiritual grounding.
If a picture of a stone attracts you, check out this stones specific aspects outlined in its individual page, you might find out that it also has other helpful qualities to benefit you.
When you hold one of these stones in your hand, for even a minute, you are likely to feel the connection to the earth.
There are many healing crystals for you to choose between, but one that is highly useful to add to your collection is Charoite. Wearing Charoite is highly conducive to your continuing good health.
It is easy to wear while doing healing, or any sort of spiritual development work. I always found it highly advantageous to wear my lovely purple Charoite Pendant, as it has a powerful vibration.
It has many powerful spiritual aspects for the higher chakras, and for the earth chakra and the base chakra, as well as for psychic protection so check out its many metaphysical attributes.
Spiritual grounding is important whenever you are using high crystal energy stones, or doing any sort of work using your psychic powers.
Whatever stone you choose to wear, just ensure that you keep one of these stones either within your aura, or have them close by so you can employ them when required.
That way if you do become ungrounded you may use them to aid you to return to normal quickly. When you are working on developing psychic abilities or powers, this is especially true.
If you feel at all ungrounded, hold one of them in your hand and make a connection with it. It has the potential to work quickly to help you.
