The Smoky Quartz is the grounding and anchoring stone. It also raises your vibration during meditation and is a great cure for stress.
This stone teaches you how to leave behind anything that no longer serves your highest good. It also brings emotional calmness, lifts depression and ambivalence about being incarnated. The Smoky Quartz aids in accepting your physical body and sexuality, and cleanses the base chakra so that passion can flow naturally.
In essence, if you are looking to come to terms with this physical incarnation and all that it entails, this grounding stone is perfect for you.
How to cleanse
The Smoky Quartz, like most crystals, should be cleansed periodically.
My best recommendation for cleansing your crystals is to do so with smoke. This could be from sage, Palo Santo wood or incense sticks. Allow the smoke to engulf your crystal and visualize its energy being renewed. After cleansing it, set your intention for your crystal by holding it in your hands and speaking your affirmation into it, specifically relating to grounding yourself.
The Smoky Quartz alleviates nightmares and manifests your dreams.
Tip: Hold this crystal after your meditation practice if you are having difficulties anchoring yourself back into the present reality.
