According to legend, the Hematite crystal was used as a talisman for warriors in 8th Century England because it was believed to preserve the blood or life essence of a fallen soldier wounded in battle.
While your problems may not be as life threatening as an invasion of Viking marauders, a Hematite crystal is a powerful ally in keeping you grounded (no more being distracted by that picture of Travis Fimmel in your desk drawer) and connected to the Earth’s plane.
By the simple act of bringing, you are back down to earth, Hematite gives you the clarity and focus you need to be boss at whatever it is you do. No matter how small your progress, each step you take with your eye firmly on the prize is one step closer to world domination… or at least achieving one of your slightly more realistic goals.
