Feeling anxious, scattered, insecure or clumsy can often indicate that you’re in need of some grounding.
Grounding is the process of connecting to the Earth and to the present moment. It brings us back to physical reality and allows us to see things more clearly.
By grounding, we enable ourselves to manifest into our physical reality.
We can dream, set goals and repeat affirmations, but if we want to be effective at bringing those things to our physical reality grounding is key.
You know that feeling when you’re stuck in your head? A surplus of thoughts and fragmented attention overtakes our mind and distracts us from the present moment & from physical reality.
Grounding is the art of moving through all those thoughts and disorganized energies in your head, and reconnecting your soul with the earth.
There’s many ways you can ground your energy and working with crystals is one of my favorite ways.
I’ll share my top 10 favorite crystals for grounding so you can get a feel of some stones you might like to work with in your grounding practice.
Let’s dive in.
10 Most Powerful Crystals for Grounding
A powerful but gentle stone that strengthens our connection to mother earth. It is also a stone of transmutation– turning negative energy into positive energy.
Smoky quartz nourishes from the ground up- from root chakra to crown chakra- connecting your energy with the earth and assisting you in grounding your energy.
I love using smoky quartz when I need gentle support in clearing negativity so that my energy can ground.
Another really powerful root chakra stone that will almost instantly assist in grounding your energy. The first time I held a shungite stone I sensed its strength and power- it is unmistakably a phenomenal crystal for grounding.
Shungite is also a great balancing stone. It’s known to assist in balancing the masculine and feminine energies that we all have.
As mentioned above, it’s really a strong stone that may take some time to attune to. That being said- it is highly protective and can help you ground your desires and anchor them with power into reality.
Bonus: it helps to clear EMF from your space if you’re worried about the negative qualities of being surrounded by electronics!
One of my favorites that I use almost daily. It does a wonderful job at keeping bad luck and negativity away. It’s very protective, healing and grounding. One of my favorite crystals to wear when I feel nervous, vulnerable or restless. Its a great stone to wear or keep with you in public- it’ll help to shield you from unwanted or negative energy.
If the past, grief, or sorrow are keeping you away from grounding into the present moment, black onyx is a great grounding crystal for you. Like most black stones, this one is deeply connected to the earth and has protective qualities that can shield you from negativity.
It is another powerful yet gentle stone that can offer comfort and grounding support.

This stone is highly protective and grounding. It helps bring positive energy, joy, love and light frequencies into our space.

One of the coolest stones I’ve encountered is petrified wood. It’s exactly as it sounds- wood (aka tree) turned to stone. One of the best stones to help you establish roots, and assist in grounding your energetic roots into the earth. It is gentle, supportive, and offers great strength, stability and clarity.
Peace, calm, and patience are what I typically feel when working with Jasper. All three of those qualities are helpful with grounding!
