Sometimes when you ground yourself, you can change the energy in a room. You can ground your house, your car, your office. Before I leave for work, I ground the room where my dog stays. One of my favorite stories is the experience of a friend during a family holiday dinner. The noise and confusion at the dinner table was driving him insane, so he made a grounding gesture under the table to calm the energy – and it worked.

Grounding brings you back to the now.

Carrying or wearing a first-chakra stone (see list at the Crystalmaster: link ) can help during the day. Hematite, bloodstone, obsidian, smoky quartz, jet, and garnet are common. I ground my house with a stone welcome mat, my fireplace with a bowl of riverstones.
