Do I Have to ground energy?
No, you don’t have to, but this little post will teach you how to ground your energy. It’s something That is good practice as it will remove the heightened state of your spirit and mind. Grounding sounds like its going to be some long, elaborate ritual after you’ve just completed your ritual, but it doesn’t have to be.
Grounding can be as simple or as complicated as you’d like it. I see it as a form of meditation, one that helps you to focus your thoughts, calms your heightened energy down and balances your spirit back out. Balance is very important in magic, not just life.

If you’re like me and fast before spell work, eating is an excellent way of helping your body get in tune with your spirit. Nourishing your body can help to reconnect you to your physical self and refuel depleted energy. Sit down for a hearty, healthy meal and give it your full attention. Think about the colour, the smell, how many bites you take. This helps to pull you back into your body fully after intense spiritual experiences or spell work and gives you a moment to relax.
Stones and Crystals
Certain stones and crystals can be grounding. Hematite is particularly good for this purpose. Other crystals include; Fire Agate, Red Jasper, Moss Agate, Shungite, Smokey Quartz Crystals, Black Diopside and Turquoise. All excellent for spiritual and emotional grounding.
Simply focusing on your breath can encourage your energy to equalise on its own. Lay or sit down somewhere comfortable and visualise yourself in third person.

Grounding doesn’t have to be exclusive to spell or spiritual work. It is an excellent to centre your emotions after a long day and perfect for banishing away fiery emotions of anger, before or after a fight! Take your high emotional energy and turn it into a calm state of mind, body and spirit.
