Grounding Exercise

In the spiritual industry we throw around the concept of “grounding” quite a lot. So “what is grounding and how do I get grounded?

Feeling grounded is being aware of one self in the moment – connecting our spiritual self with our physical body. It is being conscioius of what is happening around you and feeling centred.  It is important especially for those that work in the healing and spiritual industry or those that work closely with others energy whether conciously or unconsiously.

When you are not grounded you may feel:

  • Disconnected
  • Confused or lack of clarity
  • Floaty
  • Dazed

Spiritual grounding or earthing can assist with eliminating some of this excess energy by connecting you back to mother earth or nature , transmuting that energy and allowing you to feel back in your physical body instead of being in your head.

There are many ways to ground which include:-

  • Walking
  • Eating
  • Drinking water
  • Feeling the earth under your feet
  • Being in nature
  • Grounding visualisation

A grounding visualisation I use before and after readings is imagining my  feet having roots (like a tree) and allowing themselves to anchor deep into the earth. I imagine all my stress and negative emotions running to my feet down the roots through to the ground where the energy will be transmuted. I then feel the earth below me is supporting me and giving me a firm foundation . I then imagine white or golden light coming down through my crown chakra (top of head) and bathing me in a golden light replenishing my body with all that it needs to feel peace and balance again. I do this as often as I feel necessary during the day to get into that centred space.

Even if you are not a reader or healer and want to feel centred getting physical or doing a meditation will help you release emotions or excess energy.
