Most people are stressed because they keep turning the past over and over in their mind, or constantly worry about the future. At the most simple level, keeping your crystal with you at all times and gently stroking it or turning it in your hand clears your mind and focuses your attention into the present moment. Take three deep, slow mindful breaths as you do so. Paying attention to the breath as it moves into your body and then out again automatically calms your system. Especially if you make the out-breath longer than the in. The intention is not to ‘zone out’ but rather to become more present and feel the crystal energies bathing you in peace and tranquility.

  • Wearing your crystal means that the energy is constantly radiated into your personal energy field, bringing it into harmony, helping you to feel far less stressed.
Eye of the storm

Eye of the Storm, c. Jeni Campbell/

Holding this stone makes you feel like you are standing in the calm, quiet eye of a hurricane. Everything whirls around you, but you are at peace within it. It helps you to take an objective view of problems and effortlessly resolve them. It’s ideal for anyone who leads a stressed life. Combine it with mindful breathing.

Here’s a story one of my workshop participants recently told me:

A storm was brewing and I was worried about my boat. I went down to move it. The waves were huge and I got washed overboard and was being churned around and around like being in a washing machine. I clutched my Eye of the Storm and asked to be looked after. Somehow I managed to clamber out onto the rocks unharmed.


Hematite, c. Jeni Campbell/

If you’re not grounded into your body and in touch with the planet, you’ll never feel truly safe inside. The solution? Wear Hematite! This crystal has been used for thousands of years for grounding and protection. It is easily obtained as a necklace or bracelet. Wear it constantly.

Creating your grounding root

This simple grounding root exercise anchors you to the planet, re-energises you from the Earth, and allows freedom of movement in order to reach higher or further dimensions of consciousness, to journey inwards or back into the past, and to safely access the Akashic Record. Remember to cleanse and dedicate your crystals before you begin the exercise (see pages xx-xx).

  • Cleanse the aura and chakras with Flint and/or Anandalite (if you don’t have Anandalite or the other crystals you can use the cards in The Crystal Wisdom Healing Oracle pack.)
  • Stand with your feet slightly apart, well balanced on your knees and hips. Feet flat on the floor. Place a Flint, Eye of the Storm (Judy’s Jasper), Graphic Smoky Quartz, Hematite, Smoky Quartz, Smoky Quartz Elestial or other grounding stone at your feet.
  • Picture the earth star chakra about a foot beneath your feet opening like the petals of a water lily.
  • Place your hands just below your navel (tummy button) with fingertips touching and palms out towards the hips.
  • Picture roots spreading across your belly, into your hips and then down through your legs and out of your feet to meet in the grounding stone.
  • The two roots twine together and pass down through the Earth Star and the Gaia Gateway, going deep into the earth. They pass through the outer mantle, down past the solid crust and deep into the molten magma.
  • When the entwined roots have passed through the magma, they reach the big iron crystal ball at the centre of the planet.
  • The roots hook themselves around this ball, holding you firmly in incarnation and helping you to be grounded in incarnation.
  • Energy and protection can flow up this root to keep you energised and safe
  • Allow the roots to pass up from the Earth Star through your feet, up your legs and the knee chakras and into your hips. At your hips the roots move across to meet in the base chakra and from there to the sacral and the dantien just below your navel. The energy that flows up from the centre of the Earth can be stored in the dantien.
