WHAT IS GROUNDING?
Grounding is about being centred, balanced and connected to the Earth’s energy. Grounding helps us stay cool, calm and collected no matter what is happening around us. It balances the root chakra, helps us make better decisions and own our own power.
HOW CAN YOU TELL IF YOU ARE NOT GROUNDED?
If you feel panicked, anxious, cranky or unable to focus, you might need help with grounding.
Here are 3 crystals that can help you with grounding. As always, cleanse, connect and program your crystals for the intended purpose.
