Hematite Tumbled Stones
Hematite is particularly effective at grounding and protecting. It harmonises mind, body and spirit. Used during out of body journeys, it protects the soul and grounds it back into the body. This stone has a strong yang element and balances the meridians, redressing yin imbalances. It dissolves negativity and prevents negative energies from entering the aura, restoring peace and harmony to the body.
Psychologically, Hematite is strong. It supports timid women, boosts self-esteem and survivability, enhancing willpower and reliability, and imparts confidence. This stone removes self-limitations and aids expansion. It is a useful stone for overcoming compulsions and addictions. Hematite brings attention to the unfulfilled desires that are driving life. It treats overeating, smoking and any form of overindulgence. Hematite helps you to come to terms with mistakes and to accept them as learning experiences rather than disasters.
Mentally, Hematite stimulates concentration and focus. It enhances memory and original thought. It brings the mind's attention to basic survival needs and helps to sort out problems of all kinds.
Physically, Hematite has a powerful connection with blood. It restores, strengthens and regulates the blood supply. It can draw heat from the body.
Hematite aids circulatory problems such as Raynaud's disease and blood conditions such as anaemia. It supports the kidneys in cleansing blood and it regenerates tissue. Hematite stimulates the absorption of iron and the formation of red blood cells. It treats leg cramps, anxiety and insomnia and aids spinal alignment and fractures and is also used as an elixir for fever.
Position: Base and top of the spine to facilitate spinal manipulation. Hold or place as appropriate for healing and/or calming. Hematite should not be used where inflammation is present or for long periods of time
Cleansing Your Crystals
Your crystals will work best when they are cleansed & charged. Here are a few recommendations you could try:
1. Soak your crystals gently with salt water for up to 72 hours. (Don’t soak Selenite as it can dissolve)
2. Bury your crystals in the soil either in the ground or inside a healthy house plant for at least 24 hours.
3. Place your crystals outside or on a window sill under the sun or a full moon for at least 4 hours. (Don’t place Amethyst in the sunlight as it will fade)
4. Hold your crystals in the smoke of a burning Sage stick or Palo Santo stick until they are fully immersed in the smoke.
Setting your intentions
When you first receive your Ascended Soul crystals, one of the most important aspects is to set your intentions with each crystal. To activate your crystals, find a quiet space to sit and hold crystals in both of your hands.
Take 3 deep breaths in through the nose and out through the mouth fully releasing any tension in your body. Begin then to visualise a bright healing white light entering in through the Crown Chakra and see or speak your intentions for your crystals. Your crystals are now ready to use and bring you healing, love and light.
How to use your crystals
- Keep your crystals with you throughout the day
- Sleep with a crystal at night under your pillow or in your hand
- Place a crystal in a certain place in a room
- Place a crystal on top on your journal or a list of written intentions
- Meditate with your crystals placed on your body, in your hands or placed around you
