Grounding

We live in an extremely fast-paced society, which can leave one feeling discombobulated, flighty and unfocused.  One method of handling the constant barrage of information directed our way, increased interactions with others, and a nonstop stream of thoughts is to practice grounding.

Grounding does not need to follow a complicated formula and can easily be practiced any time, anywhere, when one needs to “come back to Earth” and re-connect oneself to our planet.

My favorite way to ground myself is to incorporate visualization and breath work to establish a firm connection into Earth.  When I inhale, I slowly breathe in Earth Mother’s loving, supportive energy.  When I exhale, I envision roots coming out of my feet, like an energetic tree, and they go down into the ground and connect me to this space we call home.  I repeat this process of inhaling and exhaling until my roots reach the core of Earth Mother and I feel connected to Her.  I remain in this connected space until I feel firmly connected and then I carry on with the day.

One can integrate a grounding crystal, such as hematite, into the process.  In this instance, I stand by a window and place the crystal on my third eye and I follow the process outlined above.  As with everything, you may modify any process to suit you.  I envision a constant feedback loop, between myself and Earth Mother as I inhale and exhale.  This is a process I follow every time I begin any of the healing facilitating services I offer and at the conclusion of sessions, also.

There are several other ways one can ground, such as going outside and physically laying on the grass, hugging a tree, going for a walk, getting out in nature, practicing gardening, etc.  This list is not exclusive.  Today, I prefer the method outlined above, as it is -33° Celsius and I want to stay warm!  I also appreciate that this process costs nothing and can be practiced anywhere, at anytime.

If you have a way of grounding that you’d like to share, please add a comment.
