(Typical Examples)

A crystal with an eight-sided face is called a Grounding crystal. They are quite rare. Grounding crystals help us to deal with practical matters in a logical and clear-headed way, attuning us to Earth energies and preventing our thoughts from becoming “scattered”. Being grounded helps us to deal with the practical or realistic aspects of life. When used in meditation, they allow us to form a strong connection with higher knowledge, but keep us grounded so that we apply that information in a practical sense. When using a grounding crystal to work through a personal problem, remember that it will require us to look at the truth of the situation and compel us to deal with that truth.

Grounding crystals are used as talismans, healing crystals, and as mediation crystals. As talismans they are used to facilitate a sense of belonging, a sense of security, and to facilitate efforts to be more focused, more centered, and more aware of one’s current reality.

As healing crystals and as meditation crystals they are used often to realign a person with the Earth when the balance is askew between the reality of the Earth and its influences, and the spiritual world.  Even a keen appreciation and appreciation of the spiritual cannot be allowed to disconnect us from the physical world.  A mind needs a sound body, and the body is a physical manifestation that much be aligned with the natural world to function effectively.
