In my opinion, nothing works better for grounding than walking barefoot on the grass or at the beach. You may also lay on the grass or beach in any of these crystal layouts. Sometimes this isnít an option and we can use crystals and other means to assist us. Grounding mats are available on the market and can be used to amp up your crystal work and meditation sessions. Below are some sample grounding layouts using a grounding mat and Black Tourmaline. The picture on the right shows Black Tourmaline placed above the head, below each foot, at the Earth Star Chakra, Heart Chakra, one in each hand, as well as a bracelet and anklet. There are many other grounding crystals and minerals and stones that can be used. Some examples include: Lodestone, Hematite, Red Jasper, Tiger Iron, beach or river rocks, etc. Visit the Earth Star Chakra and Root Chakra pages for more information.
You can lay down and place your crystal between your feet, or 12-8 inches below the feet. You may also sit in a chair with feet flat on the ground and place the crystal
between your feet.
Grounding Body Layout with Rocks
Materials - Rocks, Hematite, grounding mat, nature sounds or music.
Directions - Place larger rocks around the body and smaller ones on the body. Place the Hematite at the Earth Star Chakra, about 6-12 inches below the feet. You may substitute the Hematite with a rock, Black Tourmaline, Smokey Quartz or other grounding crystals. Place one rock in your receiving hand. Lay in this position for 10-20 minutes or as long as you feel comfortable. Nature music or sounds will enhance the experience as well. If you would like to use essential oils, Patchouli Oil is a great one for grounding.
