HEMATITE - A Seeker Transformer Crystal

The very fact that Hematite stones are magnetic amongst the huge variety of metaphysical crystals that are non-magnetic, indicates that we have here a mineral with some pretty amazing properties. Another important feature of hematite that cannot be neglected is the fact that it is an iron based stone. Surely, a huge number of crystals and semi precious stones have iron atoms within their structure, but in hematite stones iron is the dominant constituent. In general, we can say that hematite is a stone of healing, grounding, fortune telling, meditation, stabilization and protection. Hematite is a protective stone and its energies help you connect with the Earth and its benefits.

The created shield of Hematite enables reflecting negative energies, thoughts and feelings back to their source. This feature calls for caution, since likewise your negative thoughts can be reflected back to you. 

Use this stone during meditation to bring awareness to the illusionary chains of physical reality and become more connected to your true Authentic Self.  It has been used as an aid to astral projection. 

Hematite is a male stone of love. This is obvious from the excess of iron in its structure, as iron is a typical male element which promotes creating a relationship of love, balance and peace. Some say this stone brings mental clarity, better focus and concentration, clear thoughts and develops photographic memory. It also supports self-esteem, making you feel more comfortable and better about yourself.  Its grounding and soothing energies can help you relax and unwind both physically and mentally.  It may heal anger and rage and provide courage in the workplace, fostering peace and non-aggression.

On the physical level and in crystal therapy, Hematite heals and recuperates, as well as regroups the forces within our organism after difficult times and procedures, such as anesthesia, invasive searches, stress and devastating moments of one's ego. It helps in regeneration of the skin. Hematite is a powerful stone to extract negative energies from the body. While holding this stone in your hands, visualize the desired healing process and then put hematite on top of the affected area or tissue.  There are some basic measures of precaution related to hematite, but above all avoid contact with water.

Hematite is said to be closely tied to the blood due to its iron content.  Believed to aid the kidneys, speed tissue regeneration, and contribute to improving the blood, and so the overall health of your entire body.

In the past, Black has naturally been associated with certain fears of the unknown and unseen. Because we do not know or understand death, black is often associated with death and ending. Even though Black is not a color but an absence of color, for the purposes of this manual, we are referring to Black as a positive color force when used for positive outcomes.  In this case, Black crystals such as Hematite, Agate, Black tourmaline and Onyx, are power crystals that, like some red and scarlet minerals, relieve our fears of physical harm. Each of these crystals offers a sense of well being and may be placed at the front door with a Pink Rose Quartz stone to strengthen love and security to all who enter. A Black Tourmaline, besides being a great grounding force, can also give you a sense of well-being.

Black is a protective color that actually gives you a sense of power. It offers us a feeling of being secure, daring, bold and physically powerful.  Dark-colored crystals deepen our connection to the physical, natural world. They help relieve us of fears specifically associated with our physical existence here on Earth.  Black crystals are very synergistic with light green crystals to provide you with safety and confidence.

Black crystals connect us to water energy; its flowing, soothing sensuality can wrap us in a cocoon of safety and security.

They are also good stones to use to grid your home to help to prevent negative energy build up. They may be placed in each of the corners of the home, and in your study where the computer is located. Place extra Magnetic Hematite to aid the dissipation of energy build up from the electromagnetic fields created.
