A Hematite Crystal Practice to Change Your State
You know those days where you feel as though everything is going wrong? Think back to the last time that happened. How did you handle it? Do you wish you could’ve handled it differently? What about when you’re feeling anxious, overwhelmed, stressed, or tense? Do you wish you could respond to those difficult situations in a healthier way, rather than resisting or reacting? You’ve come to the right place. Our new crystal practice to change your state and re-calibrate your energy has become our new go-to crystal practice for those times. You can use this practice each morning to start your day from a calm state, or anytime you find yourself needing to get out of a downward spiral.
This practice is centered around Hematite, one of the most grounding and stabilizing energetic forces there is. This 3-step practice features a Hematite meditation, wearable crystals, and a final dose of calming energy to help you get out of your head, into your body, and rooted into the earth. It’s easy for us to spin out in our heads, which is what allows our energy to escalate to levels that can be difficult to manage. But when you have your feet and energy firmly planted on the ground, you can see a situation from a calm state and plug a higher perspective where solutions reside. Not only will this practice help you transform your energy, but it will also help you transform your approach to life.
For this practice, you’ll need:
- the Earth Elemental Healing Music or your favorite grounding music
- 2 Hematite stones, touchstones or spheres
Your 3-Step Practice to Change Your State
Step 1: Get Grounded with a Hematite Meditation
A crystal visualization is a powerful technique to harness the energy of a crystal. This Hematite crystal visualization will help you get grounded, centered, and rooted so you can reach a calmer state of being. This is the perfect crystal visualization to use on a daily basis to maintain a sense of energetic stability, but it’s also powerful as an on-the-spot crystal treatment when you find yourself spinning out of control. Through breathing exercises and sound, you can use this visualization to shift your state and plug into a higher frequency.
To enhance your visualization practice, we suggest holding a Hematite stone in each hand to bring balance to both sides of the body and anchor your energy. You can do the visualization without the crystals, but the tangible connection to your stones makes your experience more powerful because it helps to keep you in the present moment and address your physical energy, as well as your mental state.
Your Hematite Visualization
Before you begin, we recommend setting the tone for your visualization with grounding sound. With a Hematite crystal in each hand, take a seat in a chair in your home, making sure that your feet are flat on the ground. Lay your hands gently on your thighs, holding your crystals with your palms facing up.
Start by following the following breath pattern for 9 cycles of breath: Take a deep breath in through the nose, holding it as you feel the grounding energy of hematite fill your lungs, and release that breath back out through the nose, exhaling any negativity.
After you’ve completed your 9 cycles of breath, feel the weight of your Hematite crystals shifting your focus down into your body. First it starts in your hands, then spreads upward from your hands, as it brings that earthly pull into your arms and then shoulders.
Feel this grounding energy moving into your neck, relaxing every muscle and cell within you, as it slowly draws out your tensions. See all the anxieties, fears, worries and doubts that spiral around in your mind getting sucked down by the gentle pull of the earth. Feel them sinking from the crown of your head, draining out behind the backs of your eyes, and seeping down past your jaw.
Feel any tension clogged within your throat being cleansed by this rooted Earth energy. That energy carries into your chest, comforting you with supportive vibrations as you breathe in, and unloading the pressure of any stress as you release out. Feel that earth energy dragging any stubborn negativity out from within your heart and being. The weight of this energy flushes out the darkness within your core, leaving you feeling pure and balanced.
Notice the nurturing Earth energy shifting into your hips. Feel it grounding you and as it pulls your focus closer and closer to the earth. This energy radiates into your legs, forging a bond with the earth as it continues to move your attention deeper and deeper down your legs.
See all your negativity moving down past your knees now, getting pulled toward your ankles. Feel the stressful energy that no longer serves you draining out through your heels and dispersing back into the soil of the earth. Feel the energy running through your body and spirit. Your connection with the earth allows it to feed support and balance into your purified space.
Repeat this affirmation aloud:
I am grounded. I am connected.
I am grounded. I am connected.
I am grounded. I am connected.
Set your hematite crystals down and rub your hands together.
Step 2: Stabilize Your Energy By Wearing Hematite On Your Body
A crystal meditation and holding the stones is the first step to changing your state, but it’s important to carry that energy with you throughout the rest of the day to help you stay in-state. That’s where wearable crystals come in.
Hematite is the perfect crystal to wear because its iron content gives us the extra energy that we all need right now to stay grounded. By wearing Hematite and keeping it close to your body throughout the day, the crystals can help you to change our energetic frequency. When you have static energy around you from the crystals, your thoughts and energy field can remain static at the higher frequency. You can plug into the energy source of stones on your body and utilize them to help you recalibrate your energy body whenever you start to slip out of state.
There are many different ways to wear Hematite, and where you choose to place it near your body can affect how it works on your energy.
- Stabilizer Bracelet connects to your pulse-point and acts as an energetic touchstone and visible reminder of your intention.
- Stabilizer Necklace falls over your chest and heart-space to address the upper part of your body and keep you feeling centered.
- Grounding Anklet to anchor your feet and the lower half of your body to the earth beneath you.
Step 3: Calm Your Mind, Body, and Spirit
The final step in your crystal practice is to seal your energy field with calming vibrations to maintain a calm state of being throughout the day. Our Calming Crystal Oil Roller, made with Amethyst and Lepidolite stones, as well as lavender and vanilla oils, is the perfect way to fill your mind, body, and spirit with peace and relaxation. This crystal-infused energy tool ensures calming energy is available to you whenever, wherever so you can tap into these frequencies when you need them most.
After you’ve completed steps 1-3, use the crystal intention: I reprogram all aspects of my being in all dimensions of time to be calm, grounded and centered. Now, as you move forward, you can hold onto this grounding energy.
So whether you incorporate this 3-step practice into your daily routine or you use it as a way to address your energy in-the-moment when life throws you off, this practice can help you cultivate the awareness to recognize when you are heading down a negative spiral. Once you do that, you can choose to shift your state and use this practice to align with a higher frequency.
