Grounding Tips for Balance in a High Flying World

Hibiscus Moon earthing, grounding 10 Comments

This Crystal Q&A question comes from Geert in Belgium (Can I just take a moment to gush about our worldwide sparkly community?! I’m so grateful to have our HMCA Certified Crystal Healers now in 10 different countries around the world! (Find one near you!)

Sharing the love & knowledge of crystal healing, that’s what it’s all about & I’m so freakin’ happy that we’re on this path together :).  Thank You Sparkle Gems!

BORING DISCLAIMER: I think you already know that I’m not a doctor & am not giving medical advice. Crystals should be used as a compliment to & not as a replacement for regular medical care & consultations. Let me also warn you that this is a link-rich post. I have lots of good resources here to refer you to. ALL of the products that I recommend are products that I have personally used & HIGHLY recommend. Some of the links below are affiliate links that will earn me a commission if you purchase through them, but you can certainly purchase through a different link. Just wanted you to know that I wouldn’t have them here if I didn’t totally believe in them.

So, Geert asks:

“When I ground, but my body is not technically connected to the ground, is this OK? Will we still receive the benefits of grounding when we are on the 10th floor of a building, or on a train, or on a plane?”


Watch this vid for my answer to Geert’s question…

 Grounding Tips for Balance in a High Flying World


Grounding is definitely a good idea & a wonderful practice in the world of energetic healing & crystal healing:

We need to ground to stay balanced, so that we don’t get depleted w/ an electron deficiency!!! In today’s fast paced electro savvy world, we’re surrounded by positively charged ions & are mostly insulated & disconnected from the healing effect of Mama Earth. In order to stay balanced, the best thing to do is have skin to earth contact, picking up the earth’s natural plethora of negative ions.

Because of those new shoes, strappy sandals, or fancy boots you’re  kickin’, you’re feet don’t get to touch the earth & accumulate the negative ions that our great planet provides aplenty.  Really all you need to do to ground is walk around barefoot on the Earth … (I recommend doing this as much as possible).

If you wanna learn more about grounding with the earth’s energy (earthing), there’s a whole book about this that I highly recommend:

But, if you’re an urban Crystal Hottie, or you live in a cold climate, well it’s probably not really that practical to go barefoot very often.  Luckily,  we can use substitutes for our practical needs (love me some practical answers).

Crystals to the rescue!

What about when you’re off the ground & you’re actually physically disconnected from the earth?

  • Use crystals in your meditation, grab that black tourmaline,  focus your intention and visualize rooting and grounding into Mother Earth.
  • For travel, I  have another blog post on that right here on Crystals & Travel which includes my special mojo kit for travel.
  • Here’s that other video I referred to on Crystals for Grounding.
  • When traveling in a train or an airplane, you need to set a strong intention during the flight & take extra special care after the flight;
  • Carry a hematite stone & use it to help balance your electromagnetic field & alleviate jet lag.
  • Also take your shoes off during the flight (and rub your tootsies w/ the hematite).

BEWARE & Combat Radiation After a Flight

What? Radiation on an airplane?

Yes, I know from my last post on this topic that this is shocking news to many. Yep, flying the “friendly” skies gives as much as 1,000 times the radiation of those airport body scanners everyone is yammering on about. It’s not actually the airplane doing this but our closer proximity to the Sun. Dr. Mercola, natural health expert explains:

“Nearly everyone forgets that when you fly, there is also ionizing radiation exposure. In fact, on a typical transcontinental flight at 30,000 feet you will be exposed to 20 microsieverts of radiation. That is 1,000 times the dose you receive from the scanner.”

So what to do about that?

1. Load up on anti-oxidants before, during & after your flight. Both in supplement form and naturally through your food: blueberries, leafy greens, colloidal silver


This is the kind we use in our household. Please consult with your own doctor on when & how much to take.


2. Take an Crystal Anti-Radiation Mineral Bath as quickly as you can after the flight. Ingredients:

  • If you have access to a specimen of colemanite (used just for this purpose b/c it has a low hardness and the frequent baths will eventually cause it to lose its luster);

    colemanite is boron-based, thereby accepting & ionizing radiation

  • 1 hematite (use a polished one or it will rust)
  • 1 cup of plain epsom salts
  • 1 cup of baking soda
  • 1 cup high quality Himalayan Salt
  • 3-4 Tbsp of Sonne’s Detoxification No 7– contains bentonite (mineral-rich volcanic clay), soaks up yuckies, like radiation & helps your body recover quickly

3. Fly at night. No Sun. Genius, right?!! Now those red-eye flights don’t sound so bad.

Oh…here’s that great Grounding Alternative Kit created by the authors of the book; Earthing that I mentioned in the vid:

Hope this helps answer your questions on using crystals to support you while traveling & how to help stay grounded.

Do you have a special crystal that you have to have with you when you travel or if you live in a high-rise? Or a special routine that you do in order to stay grounded & healthy when you’re jet setting? Please share that in the comments below. 

Crystal Blessings!

  1. Thank you for this post! I am definitely interested in exploring more about earthing. I heard somewhere that “a day without putting your feet on the earth is a day you haven’t lived.” Glad to know more, too, about some of the crystals that can help support grounding. Just love your blog. 🙂

  2. Hey! Do we really need grounding? I don’t really get it. What happens if you’re not grounded? I’ve heard that if you’re trying to increase your psychic abilities, you’re not supposed to work with grounding stones. Is that true? If I want to increase my abilities, should I stay away from grounding stones, have them around but not “work” with them or simply do as you say, ground myself? And one more thing :)! If you need to stay grounded no matter what, can we combine grounding crystals with spiritual crystals to ground ourselves at the same time as we visit higher dimensions, lucid dreams, sees auras etc? Or do they cancel each other out? I’m so confused :S

    Btw, love your videos<3 Thanks for all the knowledge you're sharing with all of us 😀

      I am PASSIONATE about grounding. I highly suggest reading the book, Earthing and then you’ll know why or watch the movie The Grounded. No, I’ve never heard that. I feel we all need some grounding at some point.

      1. quite the opposite! If you’re not grounded, you can’t anchor the high frequency energies involved with the psychic senses. The body protects us so we don’t float away! The body, & being grounded, is how we bring those upper chakra energies down so we can access them. Our bodies are the receivers for the energies, so stay in it to be able to come back after doing astral flying, etc. By anchoring deeply/grounding in the body we can reach out further. Think of if you were reaching for someone needing a rescue–1st thing you’d do is anchor yourself before reaching out to help them. The 3rd eye chakra is also related to the lower chakras. Read Anodea Judith on the chakras. I’ve been working on the upper chakras, & it wasn’t until I balanced my lower ones that I started to open my psychic abilities. I love doing a full chakra layout which gets all the chakras humming–including the 3rd eye! They all work together & support each other. Best wishes! <3 🙂

  3. Great post thanks Hibiscus!
    There is another great way to help ward off the effects of flying and that is a bush flower essence combination called travel essence. It has a flower essence called mulla mulla that is all about protecting and negating the effects of earth, electrical and electromagnetic radiation.
    Happy grounding everyone!

  7. I would like your advice, please. I need, maybe to know which crystals would be good to protect me from the moon. I’m sure protect isn’t the right term…my brain is a bit foggy, I am beginning to have cramps, I checked, and the moon will be full in four days. This is a usual thing for me.
    My background, hysterectomy at age 25 due to endometriosis. I am currently 47. My grandmother and her parents believed in the earth, throwing Runes and things of that nature.
    My work is online now because universities are few in this area. I am feeling worse each month. If you have any suggestions I would be greatful! I will driving today to a small shop, The Mystic Merchant to see if they can suggest anything
    Thank you for your time.
