"Hematite is among the most effective stones for grounding oneself in the body and the physical world. It can counteract spaciness and confusion, helping one to see practical concerns and move forward with useful action. Hematite can be used to balance the auric field and align the chakras. It pulls stray energies down through the meridian system to the root chakra. Manifestation is one of the most common problems for spiritually oriented people. Many do not realize that it is not enough to travel to the higher realms and experience expanded awareness. One goal, perhaps the primary one, of human evolution, is to bring the energies of the etheric realms into manifestation here in the physical plane. Hematite is an ideal tool in this work. Carrying or wearing hematite can assist one in bringing ones dreams and aspirations into reality and in learning the difference between a true vision and a fantasy." Robert Simmons the Book of Stones
