Three Base Chakra Crystals – Metaphysical Properties
Smoky quartz is one of the foremost grounding and anchoring crystals. It is strongly protective and is an excellent stone to keep in your aura at all times – offering psychic protection and transmuting negativity by sending it down into earth. Smoky quartz carries the same basic energy as clear quartz but absorbs and stores energy rather than radiates it. Giving it a calming and quietening quality that helps us go within, making it an excellent stone to meditate with. Relieving fear, lifting depression and alleviating ambivalence towards being human and in this world, this crystal teaches you how to leave behind what does not serve you. Smoky quartz helps one accept the realities of having a body and sexuality, enhancing libido and balancing the base chakra. This crystal draws white light energy from the crown chakra down through the body and into the earth. Bringing strength and stability and fostering a sense of pride in walking the Earth and inhabiting human form.
Black Tourmaline is excellent for grounding spiritual energy, clearing and balancing all the chakras and forming a protective shield around the body. As it activates the base chakra this crystal releases fear and disperses anxiety, creating a sense of stability and a solid foundation for good self esteem. Black Tourmaline fosters objective neutrality and clear rational thought processes, helping one remain optimistic in difficult circumstances. When used in healing this stone aids in understanding oneself and others, taking you deep within to the first cause of distress or dis-ease. Ancient magicians and healers today rely on Black Tourmaline to protect them from negative energies and entities. This crystal transmutes negative thought patterns into positive ones balancing the left and right hemispheres of the brain and stimulating practical creativity.
Hematite is particularly effective at grounding and protection, dissolving negativity and preventing negative energies from entering the aura. It strengthens our connection to Mother Earth, making us feel stable and secure. This crystal has a strong yang element and acts to boost self esteem, enhance willpower and impart confidence. Mentally it stimulates concentration, memory and original thought. Hematite can help you to find your own unique gifts and help you to release self imposed limitations. This crystal helps us to overcome compulsions and addictions, treating overeating, smoking and other forms of overindulgence. For those on the Ascension path this stone facilitates the integration of higher spiritual energies into our 3D bodies. Allowing those who are doing this work to remain grounded and to continue to function in the physical world.
