We often ground without thinking about it. When we feel drawn to get outside, go for long walks in nature (barefoot is best) or head to the beach it is a signal from our guides and Angels that we need to be more grounded into Mother Earth.
Grounding is about connecting with Mother Earth. It is of the utmost importance because while first and foremost we are spiritual beings we ARE having a physical experience and our ability to continually grow spiritually and connect to the divine universal energy is heightened when we are completely anchored into Mother Earth.
When we are not grounded the following can occur:
- Excessive Daydreaming
- Feeling spaced out
- Forgetting appointments or what you were saying mid conversation
- Feeling sick/ heart palpitations
- Feeling unstable/insecure
- Lack of focus and direction
- Misplacing items
When we are grounded it can make such a difference in our lives including:
- increases our connection, balance and stability in our physical and emotional state
- we are alert, focused and can concentrate easliy
- provides and outlet for the release of energy easier into Mother Earth
- brings strength and acceptance that we are here to fulfill a purpose
The easiest and most helpful thing to imagine when you are trying to ground yourself is tree roots! Just imagine you have great long sturdy roots coming from the base of your feet (which should remain flat on the floor during the visualisation), or, from the base of your spine if you are sitting directly on the floor. Just let these roots go right down in to the earth below and let them anchor you onto the earth. This is a very quick and efficient technique to remember when releasing energy such as static shocks from cars and supermarket trolleys!
Colour can also be quite helpful, deep earthy colors such as red, brown and terracotta are always good. Again just imagine that this colour surrounds you. You can imagine it as light or a cloak or blanket, whatever is easier for you.
Crystals can be very helpful in the grounding process. It is best to carry them in a trouser or skirt pocket (or sock if you can make it comfortable!). You must remember to cleanse and dedicate your chosen crystal for this purpose before using it. A small piece of tumbled stone will be sufficient to carry with you. Here is a list of a few easy to obtain crystals that could be used for this purpose:
Red jasper (most jaspers are good as grounders) Bloodstone, Hematite, Gold tigers eye, Carnelian, Garnet, Pyrite, Copper, Amber, Unakite.
Ways to ground:
- drinking water
- walking in natural surroundings (barefoot)
- gardening or working with clay
- Yoga, tai chi
- Grounding Crystals
