Shungite is a powerful stone to neutralize and balance the root chakra, which is located at the base of the spine. It has the ability, due to shungite metaphysical properties, to affect the bio energy of the body and its chakras. Energy enters our body from the cosmos at the top of our head and from the Earth through the bottom of our feet. The first chakra is our foundation; it’s the root of who we are and what we believe in. This is the chakra associated with security, survival and ancestral core beliefs. It’s vital to practice root chakra balancing to have a rooted and grounded first chakra to build upon. The effectiveness of the other chakras is based upon the first. Shungite is the most powerful stone for balancing root chakra issues.
If you build a house on a weak foundation, it eventually will break down. The same is true with the human energy body. Shungite is the stone that strengthens the base so that the whole can function more efficiently. Using a Shungite plate as a foundational base and then adding gemstones on top of it is a powerful way to strengthen a chakra. It is filled with positive energy, so when stones are placed on top of it, they enhance and neutralize each other and work in perfect harmony.
However, the difference with Shungite is it doesn’t allow you to put a band-aid over anything that comes up. It demands that you deal with your emotions, toxic mental thoughts and anything that no longer serves you. It puts all the stuff in your face to deal with, but in return, it gives you the grace and strength to cut the energetic cords that hold you back from your personal truth and magnificence. The shungite meaning is to free and liberate you from your past by forcing you to work through the difficult things in your life.
I created a powerful root chakra healing grid using shungite so that you can feel the effects shungite has on root chakra balancing. Garnet on top of a Shungite plate adds energy, vitality and passion. It’s a personal coach saying, “You can do it. You’re strong enough and you’re worth it.” Black Tourmaline in the center holds the energy of the terminator, releasing and energetically removing all the sludge and stagnant vibration. Hematite is a stable, consistent and grounding force. It’s a reliable stone that is always by your side, and it makes you unaffected by anything that may get in your way. Its message is to keep moving forward, one small consistent step at a time. Smoky quartz acts like an energetic vacuum, releasing any left over particles into the Earth.
Place the root chakra stones in front of you as you meditate. After using it for at least 7 days, and you have become used to its energy, you can try putting the grid over your root chakra, but listen to your body if it becomes too much. Shungite is an intense stone, and you will feel the effects.
My personal experience working with Shungite is ever evolving, shifting and transforming. To be honest, I think shungite likes it that way. This is a stone of our time and maybe because it’s been in the cosmos soaking up the vastness of the void, it’s landed here on Earth so we humans can do the same. More and more, people are meditating as they realize that the mind is our biggest obstacle to overcome in life. To conquer, subdue and quiet the mind takes daily practice. Root chakra balancing with shungite reminds us that the road to health and wellbeing is a daily practice. It keeps us on track and helps us to purify and detoxify quickly so we don’t hold it inside.
Shungite reminds me of a Bob Marley song:
Its not all that glitters in Gold and
Half the story has never been told
So now you see the light
Stand up for your right.
Shungite DEMANDS that we stand up for our rights— the right to health, love and happiness.
