Hematite is a master grounding stone that channels the higher vibrations of the Divine into our physical experience, creating a bridge between heaven and earth. It grounds one deep into the consciousness of Earth, connecting our consciousness with the wisdom of balanced living that is reflected to us from the natural kingdom, showing us the harmony and power that exists when opposites are aligned. It shows us the path of balanced opposites between masculine and feminine, physical and spiritual, work and play, etc., but its greatest gift is awakening us to the Divine Law of balanced Giving and Receiving. When we embody this law, the flow of abundance ushers forth from the Divine Heart and Mind and brings prosperity in many forms to us. Hematite carries an energy that clears away anxiety, stress, and worry and pulls negativity out of the aura where it can be neutralized through the activity of Divine Light.
