The Importance of Grounding

Grounding is extremely important, but unfortunately many people aren’t even aware they’re ungrounded.

Being grounding is being energetically connected to the earth so you are more authentically in your body. True grounding comes from living and engaging with family, friends, work and society. Truly living in the reality of life… this means you are present and aware, have clarity of mind and feel more consciously connected to who you are in this lifetime. When you are in your body and fully aware (grounded) you are not easily triggered and are in the best position to achieve the bringing of your desires into physical reality.

To be ungrounded is not being consciously connected to your life and off centre. It’s a form of escapism! Escape from your life due to any number of reasons, such as:


– High stress levels due to events in your personal life or environment which unhinge us
– When you get upset, angry, frustrated or emotional in some form or another
– Disharmony and unhappiness with your life
– Traumatic events past or present

Many start out on a spiritual path often trying to escape their current life issues because it feels so good to be connecting to the energy of source. We are spirit having experiences in a physical body and there’s no escaping that… if you want to move past your struggles you must first recognise you need to be fully present in your physical body and connected to earth.

When you are ungrounded you are easily triggered’ by people and situations and in this state you can be easily confused and influenced by others or your environment which often leads to irrational responses and feelings. It can create anxiety and fear, you can be easily distracted and unfocused, feel spacey and not quite in your body or like you’re floating outside your physical body which can cause you to feel manic and out of control, powerless or a little unsafe like you don’t have a solid foundation to stand on. There are varying degrees of ungroundedness so you may experience only a few or all of these sensations.

You may be a hard worker, creative and motivated but yet you seem to be getting nowhere and can’t seem to move forward no matter what you do.

There is a plethora of information and beliefs out there about the best way to ground yourself. Some suggest walking barefoot in nature, meditating, visualisations etc. In our experience the most effective way to ground yourself is by working with the vibrational energy of very specific crystal/s.

Wearing these specific grounding crystals by way of bracelets or pendants is also a great way to assist in maintaining your grounding throughout the day.

In our opinion, the most effective crystals for grounding are:

Black Tourmaline
