Hematite is said to be powerful in drawing illness from the body. It is worn for grounding and stabilizing purposes, and to focus attention on the physical plane. As with all stones, it is held in the hands while visualizing, then placed on the skin directly over the afflicted area. A necklace of small stones can also be worn for healing.
Hematite is particularly effective at grounding and protecting. It harmonises mind, body and spirit. Used during out-of-body journeying, it protects the soul and grounds it back into the body. This stone has a strong Yang element and balances the meridians, redressing the yin imbalances. It dissolves negativity and prevents negative energies from entering the aura, restoring peace and harmony to the body.
Hematite is said to be beneficial for legal situations.
