Hematite is particularly effective at grounding and protecting. It harmonizes mind, body and spirit. Used during out-of-body journeying, it protects the soul and grounds it back into the body. This stone has a strong yang element and balances the meridians, redressing yin imbalance. It dissolves negativity and prevents negative energies from entering the aura, restoring peace and harmony to the body. Hematite helps you to come to terms with mistakes and to accept them as learning experiences rather than disasters.
