Grounding involves detaching yourself from emotional pain by focusing on the outside world
rather than what’s going on inside you. It is useful for extreme emotional pain.

Examples of mental grounding:
Focus on describing your surroundings in detail, using all your senses—vision, hearing, smell,
taste, and feeling.
Describe what you are doing, such as eating, walking, or driving, in detail.
Think of categories; for example, categorize shoes, cars, or books.
Use imagery; for example, hop on a cloud and float away from your pain; put your pain in a
bubble and let it float away.
Use a grounding statement, such as: ‘I am John’; ‘I am xx years old’; ‘this is the present, and not
the past’; ‘I am safe here’; ‘today is ...’
Say the alphabet slowly.
Think of something funny.
Examples of physical grounding
Rub your hands together—hard. Press your heels into the floor, and notice how it feels.
Touch objects around you as you say their name, and explore them using all your senses.
Stamp your feet three times and turn counterclockwise three times.
Run your wrists under cold water…the colder the better.
Change your posture to a more upright one.
Carry something small with you that grounds you, such as a rock or crystal.
Examples of soothing grounding
Make encouraging statements to yourself, such as: ‘you can do this’; ‘just hang in there.’
These types of stones create a strong connection between oneself and the planet and they allow
out of balance energies to disperse.

Smoky Quartz.

This is a very valuable grounding stone. It is excellent for helping you connect to your physical
body especially when activating the upper chakra aligning them to the non-physical chakra
above the head.

It is excellent for absorbing and transmuting negative energies within the environment. It
grounds it into the Earth, neutralizing it. Smoky Quartz blocks geopathic stress and absorbs
electromagnetic smog (a good one to place between yourself and the source of these energies. It
could be placed on your computer desk to help avoid exposure). It is also very helpful in
alleviating stress in your life.


This offers more of an energy of spiritual protection. When in resonance with its high frequency
vibrations, negative energies and entities cannot connect or hang on to your energy field.

Black Tourmaline

This protects against electromagnetic smog and negative energies. Place between yourself and
the electromagnetic source. It also clears negativity in your surroundings and any negativity,
which you might be holding. Black Tourmaline is also helpful for ridding the mind of negative
thoughts. It works well to protect your own energy field. It is also a good antidote to stress and


This stone purifies and protects. It is thought that those attracted to it are old souls who have
been incarnated many times on earth. It neutralizes negative energies, purifying the aura. It is an
excellent grounding stone helps heal any ‘energy leaks’ in the aura. On a physical level it can
cleanse the liver and kidneys.

Black Obsidian

This is a stone of protection. Placing one on the navel grounds spiritual energy into the body. A
large piece of Obsidian helps to block geopathic stress and it is extremely effective at soaking up
negative energies. It cleanses the aura removing and eliminating negative attachments. It is a
strong grounding stone stimulating the root chakra and connecting with the Earth star chakra
below the feet, downwards into the Earth. It creates a protective shield and seals the aura.

Apache Tear.

This is a form of black Obsidian, excellent for absorbing negative energies, protecting the aura
and grounding the Earth chakra. Its energies are gentler than Black Obsidian.


This helps to ground spiritual energies and offers spiritual protection and purification. It creates a
shield of light when worn, providing a barrier and a protective bubble. This is helpful for
sensitive individuals who easily take on the energies of others around them. It disperses
negativity and fills the aura instead with high frequency light.


This is one of the most effective grounding stones, excellent for helping to reconnect to the body
and the physical world. It helps alleviate feelings of confusion or feelings of not being held
firmly in reality.

As with most grounding stones it connects to the root chakra. An interesting factor in relation to
Hematite is its role it plays in the manifestation process. In order to manifest ones desires and
dreams it is necessary to bring the energies of the etheric realms here into the physical plane. As
grounding stone Hematite provides an excellent tool for this process to occur. It is not enough to
connect to the higher realms. Wearing or carrying Hematite can translate visions or dreams into
reality. Emotionally it helps you to focus and encourages a practical and level approach to things
in general.


This is a strong protector and absorbs negative energies and transmutes them into positive forces.
Its strong connection to the Earth makes it a grounding stone for higher energies. It also cleanses
the aura and the chakra.


This is also a grounding stone and is good for geopathic stress and blocked ley lines. As with
most grounding stones it connects to the base and earth chakra. It is a stabilizing stone that
grounds and centers the body. It is good for ‘floaty people’ helping them connect more to their
physical body.

Other grounding and protective stones include Malachite, Lepidolite, labradorite, Tigers Eye,
Iron Pyrite, Fluorite, Chiastolite or Cross Stone, Carnelian and Boji Stones. Boji Stones are one
of the most effective grounding stones. All of these stones mentioned are also very beneficial to
those working in the healing fields which covers a wide spectrum of areas.
