They are drawn to crystals for many reasons, but especially for their beauty, texture, colour and the powerful vibrations they emit.
There are hundreds of different types of crystals all with countless healing properties but today I am focusing on one stone that, for very good reason, I’ve been drawn to lately…Haematite.
For the Empath, Haematite is a very powerful stone that has many helpful qualities. It is known as the grounding stone of grounding stones! It is also protecting and has a strong mirroring effect.
Haematite has the ability to both balance your energy and raise your vibration, lifting you up energetically, whilst still keeping you grounded. And one thing all Empaths need is to stay grounded!
The Mirror Effect
I was recently drawn to Haematite because of its potent mirroring effect.
Not only does it show what we need to work on within ourselves; but, when worn as an amulet, Haematite helps build a shield of protection, bouncing off psychic attack or negative energy from others. For this reason it is excellent to wear when in peopled places.
Haematite also protects from electromagnetic frequencies (EMF).
Clearing Repetitive Thoughts
Anyone of a Sensitive nature spends too much time in their heads. Continuously dipping into repetitive thought patterns. Over-thinking is addictive. Staying stuck on the same thought, for hours on end, is a typical trait of an Empath.
In its grounding action, Haematite pulls you down from your head and out of our repetitive thought patterns. It then helps put your focus back where it is needed.
If you are a nighttime thinker, and find your thoughts kick in the second your head hits the pillow, place a haematite stone under your pillow (you can also place one on your third eye but I doubt it would stay there long) and keep your focus on it till you drift off into a blissful slumber.
Haematite has a masculine/yang energy, so if you are feeling overly shy, timid or emotional it is a good one to use to counteract any overly feminine energy.
From its name, you may have guessed that haematite is related to the blood and circulatory system. It is good for the immune system because it helps blood flow and draws toxins out. It is 70% iron oxide which is why it works well with the blood.
Haematite is known as a universal helper and assists greatly in times of stress or trauma.
During crystal healing treatments, Haematite is often used in conjunction with the base chakra.
Haematite is also good to use with any spiritual work/practice, not only because of its grounding action but for the protection it offers.
When buying crystals or stones, for personal use, it is a good idea to check you resonate with them first.
To do this you can quickly scan the crystals/stones with your hand or eye (I find being drawn by eye is enough for me) and check what you see/feel. Are you drawn to it/them?
We are normally drawn to the crystals we need most. However, that said, we can be drawn to things we want but don’t need. And, for this reason, scanning crystals with your hand is beneficial.
The way something feels often tells the Empath more than the way it looks.
Always check your stones are real: There are stones available that are advertised as Haematite when in fact they are a mix of many other ground mineral stones. To make sure that your stone is genuine, check its trail. Because of its high iron content, Haematite will leave a red mark, when drawn on the back of a porcelain tile.
Out and About
My crystal healing teacher recommended we keep small Haematite tumble stones in our socks to keep us protected and grounded, when out and about, which is often uncomfortable.
I found the best way to keep the stones close to the body, if not in the pocket, is to use tape to stick the stone to your ankle or other place. Or, better still, buy a Haematite anklet, bracelet or pendant to wear when out in public or if using electrical equipment such as phones or computers.
All stones and crystals need to be regularly cleansed, to remove excess or negative energy. Cleansing can be done with varying methods such as: sunlight, salt, water, smudging, other crystals, intention, or all of the above.
Hope this helps you on your Empath journey.
