I continually sing the praises of hematite because it is truly an awesome stone. It may not be as spectacular looking as some others, but let me tell you that this stone is incredibly useful! - For one, those of you who want to open up to your psychic abilities, opening up your third eye and crown chakra is important. But it's just as vitally important to GROUND YOURSELF! The more psychically open you are the more grounded you need to be to hold a bigger current of psychic awareness. Otherwise you'll end up as one of those psychic weirdos who are out of touch with reality. Hematite is such a wonderful stone for so many things especially including this ability to be grounded and connected to the Earth. You are living and aware of this physical reality and the psychic information you receive is meant to be integrated into your physicality. Because that's what you're here for, to bring the light into the darkness of our physical worlds.
