What is Grounding?

"Grounding" is to be connected to physical reality, to be living in this present moment rather than being “spaced out”. It means making a strong physical presence rather than fading into the background. Grounding energy comes from the earth. Any physical activities will help to ground you, especially when you are bare-footed when you can be the most connected to the Earth. Running barefoot on the beach, through the forest, walking in the grass, being with nature helps to ground you. After healing or meditations, your head can find itself “in the clouds”. Your energy body will be floating above your physical body, therefore not receiving essential Grounding Energy. To realign yourself and become grounded again, drink a glass of water, hold grounding crystals and jog or just stamp your feet on the ground. 

If you happen to live in a high-rise, you can often become disconnected from Earth Energy. In this case, make sure to make regular trips out into nature and use grounding crystals along with visualizations like the one below:

Grounding & Protecting Exercise

  • Sit with Eyes Closed, Feet on Ground, Mouth Closed, all your Breath should pass in and out of your Nostrils.

  • Breathe fully from the bottom of your stomach, expanding your lungs completely but easily. Your abdomen should be expanding noticeably; don’t be shy about that! As you breathe, be aware of your spine. Feel your base bone on the seat of your chair. Feel the length of your spine as you bring breath to every vertebra. Allow yourself to gently sway with the breath, rising slightly with the inhalation and sinking slightly with the exhalation.

  • Imagine that a heavy red cord extends from your spine downwards, through your chair, through the floor, through the floors below, through the basement. A red energy cord from your spine to basement. Now imagine the cord traveling further down through the layers of the earth, first a reddish layer, then a grayish layer, through rock and finally rooted firmly into the core of the Earth.

  • You are not solidly fastened to the earth through the red energy cord from your spine to the core of the Earth. Not even a tornado could budge you if you didn’t want to move.

  • Now, leaving the red cord solidly implanted in the earth, send your breath up from the base of your spine, through your Heart and up through the Crown of your Head. Imagine your Breath as a Silver Energy Cord extending from the Base of your spine up through the top of you head.

  • Imagine this Silver Cord growing upwards with each exhalation, extending from the Crown of your up to the ceiling, up through the ceilings above, up to the roof, out into the sky, to the clouds, to the Heavens and out into the Universe.

  • Breathe, and with every exhalation, feel connection between the red energy cord in the earth and the silver energy cord in the heaven becoming stronger and stronger.

  • If you have any unwanted/negative energy, send it away merely by imagining it leaving through your red cord into the earth, send it out through the souls of your feet and through your fingertips. If you need extra, positive energy, breathe it in through the silver cord, this is the unlimited source of energy of the Universe.
