Christopher is sitting in a crowded coffee shop in the heart of New York City. All around them, there is the hustle and bustle. The cacophony of sounds is incessant. Mobiles are going off, and within Chris' circle of friends, it seems every second someone receives a text, a notification, or a call.
The constant stimulation is overwhelming enough that everyone takes notice. "Wasn't it great when there were no mobile phones, and one could have a meaningful discussion with a friend without getting interrupted every half a second?" asks Chris' friend Manny.
"I think it's all about perspective. I keep myself calm and grounded in the present," explains Chris. "I know my cellphone should work for me and not the other way round. Most people appear busy but are lacking in direction or purpose in life. This can be very demotivating at the end of the day and source of mental health issues."
"Really? How do you resist the temptation of looking at your phone when it lights up?" quizzes Linda.
"It is pretty simple. I keep myself focused and in control with a little help from my grounding crystals," replies Chris pointing at his bracelet containing Tiger Eye, one of his favorite grounding crystals.

What Is "Grounding" Exactly ?
If you are anything like I was, you would ask what is 'grounding' exactly how can grounding crystals benefit me?
Let me elaborate. Grounding refers to a calm state of mind. It is a mindset in which you are fully focused on the present. You can silence any kind of white noise that is necessary to give you a clearer perspective.
Remaining grounded is helpful in every area of life, be it your career, interpersonal relations, or even your relationship with yourself. Gaining a clear perspective is integral to better decision-making as well as improved communication. I personally greatly credit grounding crystals for helping me get better at expressing myself.
Benefits For Using Grounding Crystals
I have been using crystals for calming and grounding for years now and cannot believe that I had lived a large portion of my life without them. If I start listing grounding crystals' benefits, it will take a long time to relate each benefit.
Overall, however, grounding crystals keep you focused. This means you can improve your performance in daily life and be successful in whatever you do. I have been able to do better and achieve success because grounding crystals help me keep my presence of mind and allow me to concentrate on the important things.
Keeping grounding stones has another very important benefit. They enable you to overcome stress by reducing unnecessary thoughts and worries. I find that grounding crystals give me a sense of peace which is exactly what I need to combat anxiety and negative thought processes.
What Will Happen If You Are Not Grounded?
Remaining grounded in life is not just critical for achieving success but also for maintaining mental and physical well-being. You can experience increased anxiety and stress if you are not grounded. You may feel dizziness and confusion, which may lead to serious physical symptoms, such as palpitations and even static shocks.
How To Use Grounding Crystals?
Now that you know just how important using grounding crystals is, you might be wondering how to get the full benefits of grounding stones?
It doesn't have to be complicated at all. I use grounding crystals by incorporating them into my daily meditation. I follow a simple seven-step process that starts with practicing deep breathing. Envision yourself becoming one with the ground as you exhale. And once you inhale, imagine that you are absorbing the positive green energy from underneath your feet. Try to feel your feet as they firmly touch the ground. Think of your feet as growing roots and becoming one with the ground. You are now strongly rooted, steady, and protected. Nothing can shake you from your resolve.
