Hematite Meaning & Properties

Healing Properties of Hematite

Top 3 Benefits of Hematite

  1. One of the best grounding stones
  2. Helps manifest your highest good into physical reality
  3. Supports integration of polarities & paradox

Hematite is good for grounding. Grounding is the process of becoming in touch with the here-and-now truth in the physical body. It helps with awareness of physical needs and taking action to tend to those needs. It is helpful for people who find themselves feeling spaced out, distracted, confused, or ignoring what needs to get done and spending their life daydreaming instead of creating what they want. If you find yourself being all “vision” with no real-world results, this is a good stone to work with.

Grounding is essential for lightworkers, because without grounding you will not be able to translate spiritual knowledge or lofty visions into practical action that creates those beautiful possibilities you dream about. Hematite helps bring these light energies down through your body and anchor them in the physical world.

Hematite is a stone of polarities, containing both deep darkness and a shimmery metallic light. This integration is a good model and support for balancing and unifying seeming opposites or opposing forces to create a stronger, more cohesive whole that is more than the sum of its parts. This makes it good for those doing shadow work within the self or within our culture.
