How important is it to Ground yourself? Extremely! We are electrical conduits by nature! Ungrounded means you're feeling out of body; possibly walking around without feeling connected and distorted. Protect yourself from EMF's (electromagnetic frequencies) put off by telephones, cell towers, tv's, electrical and electronics that leave you feeling weak, stressed and tired. Natural gemstones, especially of the black in color, act as protective shields and keep you connected to your body/sacred self.
