Grounding with crystals is simple... Light assimilates into the body's physical form. Form's vibration then rises and is empowered.
Grounding has always been associated with the Earth. Electrical utility companies use copper ground rods driven 4-5 feet into the Earth throughout their networks; and copper ground rods are present in every building having electricity. Electrical charge goes to ground through the ground rod to complete the circuit of electrical current.
The simplest grounding stone, and perhaps the simplest crystal, is Hematite. Its two primary physical attributes are readily apparent. First, it is shiny; and second, it is black. Hematite is one of the Earth’s most potent grounding stones. Its black aspect attracts only the lowest black light frequency range, and its shiny aspect reflects away all other frequency ranges. Effective yes―very! But, not at all versatile! It only deals with Earth’s lowest frequency of black light to the exclusion of all others. Hematite is one of the four stones used in the Light Body layout, yet think of it as having the capacity to bring light to the lowest and densest of vibrations. It grounds the lowest vibration of the black light frequency into the lowest vibrations of form. If some part of a person’s physical body is lacking light, Hematite is the best stone to start with for the purpose of light empowerment. It brings the lowest frequency of black light, which is also the first frequency that is capable of assimilating into (bodily) form that has no light.
There is nothing to fear about Obsidian, but its power can be easily misunderstood. It works with the Earth’s soul, and it also works with the soul of whoever is using it. Obsidian’s ability to orchestrate and harmonize multiple soul frequencies, along with its potent grounding ability, makes it a powerful crystal. With so much soul, Obsidian leaves no room for ego. The difficulties that the user may experience arise, not from the light and energy of the stone, but from the displacement of the ego. The ego naturally attempts to fight its way back to prominence. The ensuing seesaw battle between the soul and the ego can be most disharmonious. Please check out Obsidian (Reference: The Crystal Textbook, Section entitled: Obsidian).
