What would we do without them? Grounding is so fundamentally important to our well-being. Ancient peoples have always known this. They were aware that they were both cosmic and Earthly beings who needed to maintain their connection to both Father Sky and Mother Earth.
Scientific studies have shown that loosing our connection to the Earth (nature) negatively affects our well-being. A British study noted that just having a plant within sight, lowered stress and depression in the workplace by 30 %. One Russian study goes as far as to say that spending 15 minutes per day sitting on the Earth can eliminate 65% of dis-ease in the human body.
I haven’t made a study of it myself but I do know that being grounded makes us more stable, secure, productive and reliable human beings. I also know that inability to connect to the Earth creates anxiety and depression. It’s hard to believe but with our busy lifestyles, many of us don’t have regular access to nature. This is where Crystals can greatly help. The following stones are some of the best grounding stones I know. Keep them in your aura for support.
