Grounding is the act of coming back to the earth; of returning to the body. Letting go and settling down. You can ground yourself through meditation, walks in nature (barefoot is better!) and connecting with the world around you in tactile form. Crystals are an amazing and helpful way to enrich your grounding process. Here are a few of our favorite crystals to help get grounded:
