Hematite helps to protect the body’s fields from toxic energies. It encourages a solid sense of self and aids in self-forgiveness. The name “Hematite” is derived from the Greek word for blood and is a reference to its color in powdered form, though most hematite in the marketplace is tumbled or polished with a metallic gray color.
What do we love about this stone? Hematite is among the most effective stones for grounding oneself in the body and the physical world. It can counteract “feeling out of body” and confusion, helping one to see practical concerns and move forward with useful action. The stone pulls stray energies down through the meridian system to the root chakra.
Who’s it good for? Because of its grounding capabilities, Hematite should be stable stone for Empaths, people who are learning to develop their psychic abilities, or for those who are already psychically sensitive. Additionally, it is beneficial to anyone who is ready to bring his or her dreams and aspirations into reality.
What should you do with your Hematite stone? Hematite has an earthy energy that can be used for almost any project that involves the power of the element of earth. This element rules the physical world, money, practical thinking, and decision making.
