We all have times when the negative energy around us starts to take its toll. That is when having a few magickal solutions to grounding out those energies is so useful. Here's a technique you'll find inone of our Kindle ebooks (book 2 in the Witchcraft Spell Book series - entitled Learn How to Do Witchcraft Rituals and Spells with Household Ingredients.)
Grounding Out Negative Energies with Grandmother's Tears
Negative energy is something that can be dealt with through a variety of magic or witchcraft rituals. Using magical stones is a good way to ground out these unwanted energies. One stone in particular, called Grandmother's Tears or Apache Tears, is very effective at grounding out any excessive energy you no longer want. This stone is a special form of obsidian (volcanic black glass) made of feldspar, hornblend, biotite, and quartz.
This stone looks opaque black in ordinary light, but appears translucent when held up to strong light. These stones have actually been spewed out from past volcanic explosions, and can be found in and around Superior, AZ. These stones are effective for grounding out excess or negative energies including anger, frustration, pain, or plain irritation. Grounding out these energies into Grandmother's Tears allows you to safely transfer these unwanted energies into the half worlds (a safe place for negative energies). Tribal people have been using these stones for generations for this purpose. Many practitioners use crystals for various types of healing work. However, crystals--and in particular quartz crystals--are easily contaminated, and need to be magically cleansed quite frequently. Because Grandmother's Tears do not actually "hold" energies transferred into them, but instead send those energies into the half worlds, these stones do not need to be cleansed unless desired by the practitioner. The stone acts as a portal to the half worlds, and none of that energy will come back to you. You can find Grandmother's Tears in most gem stores and in online stores.
Grounding Out Ritual with Grandmother's Tears
The ritual of flowing negative energy into a Grandmother's Tear stone is so easy that it can and should be used as many times as necessary daily. Follow these steps to do this ritual:
1. Figure out whether your left or right hand is your dominant hand by simply pointing at an object in your vicinity. Whichever hand you used to point is your dominant hand.
2. Hold the Grandmother's Tear stone in your dominant hand. Use your intention to flow any unwanted energy into the stone, knowing that the energy will go straight into the half worlds, and will not "bounce back" to you. If you need help "flowing," just bring up every thought, feeling, or physical sensation related to the issue that is bothering you. Use your intention to "push" all these into the stone.
3. When you feel a sense of calm or peace, you may stop flowing energy into the stone. Alternately, the stone may feel warm, heavy, charged, or loaded. At that point, you know that your flowing is complete. Stop flowing and simply breathe, relax, and enjoy the sense of peace.
How To Use Grandmother's Tears
Some people like to carry a Grandmother's Tear stone around with them. You can easily tuck one into your pocket so you can access it whenever you need to flow negative energy. Alternately, some women wear small versions of these stones as pendants on a necklace. If you choose this method, be sure to use a silver chain, since gold is magically a much less stable metal. Other people buy multiple stones and keep them available everywhere--in the car, in the kitchen, next to the phone, and on their desks! All of these techniques work. Just pick the method that fits your personality best. If you ever need to store your stones, the safest way to store them is in a pewter box. Pewter is a metal that has protective magical properties. Pewter protects anything stored from negative energy, and pewter boxes are especially useful for other types of stones, such as crystals, which tend to pick up all kinds of energies with ease. If for any reason your Grandmother's Tear stone start to feel "junky" or overloaded with energy, you can cleanse it several different ways. While this rarely happens to Grandmother's Tears stones, some practitioners prefer to cleanse their stones monthly, just to ensure safety. Two of the easiest ways to cleanse your Grandmother's Tear stone are:
1. Hold it in the smoke of a charged cedar/sage smudge stick
2. Bury the stone in the Earth for a Moon cycle (Mother Earth takes care of all kinds of energies, and is a great magical cleanser!).
Now that you have seen the type of magical offerings you can receive in our Kindle book, we hope you will take a look at it for yourself and the other books in the series.
