Hematite is often referred to as the "Stone of the Higher Mind", bringing incredible grounding and a sense of calm which helps one to focus and organize their thoughts. Harmonizing mind, body, and spirit, this effective grounding stone removes excess energy and separates your emotions from those of other people. It can attract one to their unique gifts and help release self-imposed limitations, while still maintaining a healthy amount of self-control. Utilizing the magnetic qualities of our yin-yang energies, Hematite balances the meridians within the body and to provide a stable equilibrium. Traditionally Hematite was worn on the right, or primary hand to shut down metaphysical awareness. When worn on your left or secondary hand, it allows metaphysical faculties to remain open. During out-of-body journeying, Hematite protects the soul and guides it back into the body.
