Here are my top 5 crystals for grounding. These grounding crystals and stones will help you stay connected to the Earth, your body and become more present. Learn how to use them with the powerful Tree of Life Grounding Meditation.
Why Ground Yourself?
Grounding is a common issue for some people, especially creatives and spiritual people. If you are regularly ungrounded yo can experience a number of problems such as feeling light headed, forgetfulness, clumsiness, lack of focus, feeling scattered, inaccurate intuition and even trouble manifesting. Grounding keeps your energy better connected to the Planet, your body and the physical World we live in.
“Grounding helps you integrate your spiritual and creative side with practical common sense”
Your Grounding Cord
We each have an etheric cord of energy that connects us to the Planet, this cord goes into the centre of the Earth. When the grounding cord becomes weak we become ungrounded. This cord is connected to the Root Chakra, Earth Star Chakra and all our Lower Chakras. When these chakras become unbalanced we also become ungrounded. If you’re interested in learning more about your chakras check out my book Crystal Healing For The Chakras.
Tree of Life Grounding Meditation:
This is very effective meditation that I learned from a healer about 10 years ago and have been using ever since. I have adapted it and made my own tweaks. You can use it whenever you like or even better combine it with any of the grounding crystals featured in this article. After you have chosen one of the crystals below be sure to try this visualisation:
1. Sit down with your legs crossed or in a lotus position. If you need to use a chair, both feet must touch the ground.
2. Hold your chosen grounding crystal in your hands, close your eyes and take a few deep breaths.
3. Visualise yourself as a big strong tree like an Oak tree.
4. Send your roots down into the earth, deeper and deeper.
5. See them going through the layers of rock and crystals deep within the Earth.
6. See them reach the centre of the Earth where they wrap around a huge Iron core crystal.
7. Become aware of your body. Open your eyes and take a few moments before getting up again.
My Top 5 Crystals For Grounding:
We are blessed to have so many crystals in the Mineral Kingdom that can help with grounding. These are some of my top recommendations and go-to crystals when I need to ground myself and snap back to the present moment. After these I have also included other noteworthy crystals that could have also made the list:
As well as being deeply grounding, Hematite is highly protective and strengthens the aura.
This black, grey or brown crystal connects with the Earth and absorbs negative energies really well.
A good one for the Root Chakra. A great earthy stone to work with if others are too strong for you.
A combination of grounding Tiger’s Eye, Jasper and Hematite. Helps both ground and energize you.
These unique stones feel so grounding to touch and hold. They also balance your male and female energies.

My favourite grounding stones are my Boji Stones. Or, if they are not to hand, and I’m at work, I like to use shungite spheres.
Lots of great information! Thanks for sharing
My mom just told me what the last one on the list is supposed to represent… Yeesh!
Anyway, this is really helpful. I have a hard time grounding myself. Thank you.
Please can you tell me the difference between grounding and centring please
I am using or trying to use smoky or haematite
But I’m confused if grounding and centring are the same or different
Please help me
And by the way
I’m waiting on your books now I can’t wait
Much peace ☮️ and light paula
Hi Paula, thank you so much for getting my books. People may argue that these are the same thing. I personally see grounding as more about your energy connection to the earth but centering as more about your mind and being present in the moment. They are closely related as centering is a side effect of good grounding. Hope that makes sense.
Thank you for this write up. I have a query though. Is it okay to wear a grounding crystal ( hematite or smokey quartz) anklet? I am from India, and we hesitate to wear anything sacred/pure on the feet.
Hi Ruya, where I live in the UK it is considered acceptable and our legs and feet do connect with the Earth. I understand that in some cultures this may be different. Its up to you
These are all good, but I am personally drawn more to Aegerine. It is grounding, but the needles can also be used as a wand, to send healing energy.
I recently held my hematite bracelets in my hand and felt this “gentle wave” through my body. What is this phenomena called and what connection does it have with crystals?
I think you’re just sensing the energy move through your aura. Everyone feels crystals differently
