Grounding Yourself is becoming more important in our life, the lifestyles we lead, acknowledging the changes you need to make for yourself and growing in all aspects for the better.
If you already like walking barefoot, walking on the beach or in touch with nature, it’s likely that you will already be doing some grounding.
Do you know when your body needs some grounding? Do you know the benefits of doing regular or daily grounding?
What is Grounding?
It is when you connect to the earth energetically by our senses – touching, feeling, smelling, hearing and tasting.
When we make contact with the earth through grounding, we are discharging excess energy because the Earth has a negative charge and therefore receive a healing effect at a cellular level.
When is Grounding needed?
Basically grounding yourself should be practiced daily or as many times a week . Then you will be prepared for any situations or circumstance that may arise in your daily life.
Grounding is usually needed when: you feel unfocused, unmotivated, drained, lethargic, indecisive, spaced out, feeling emotionally, your ideas aren’t being implemented, out of place, you have no control, anxious, overthinking, and lack of sleep.
These symptoms are usually a normal regular occurrence and can be caused by any slight situations so by grounding yourself in a moments notice you can deal with anything.
Grounding is the easiest and best solution for staying on top of your mind, body and soul.
Why is Grounding good for you?
Grounding helps you clear your mind, recharge your energy, calm emotions and strengthen your intuition and instincts.
Grounding allows you to balance your physical, emotional, energy, and mental state. This intern brings feelings of peace and calm.
Things that are known and others I’ve read grounding helps with increasing healing speed; decreases pain; reduces inflammation and cortisol.
How to Ground Yourself
The list of how to ground yourself is very long, so I have just complied my top 10 most easiest ways of grounding yourself.
You can download it or print it, attached it somewhere you will see it in the morning when you wake and try to add in your morning routine.
You will see a noticeable change.
Using Crystal for Grounding
I love my crystals and they are an earth element and can assist with everything in life but particularly clearing any blockages.
Lay down, place your crystals on your root chakra and let the positive charges from the crystal flow into your root chakra. This will make you feel more centred, balanced and free from negativity. Also, you are more authentically owning our own power when you are grounded.
When choosing crystal to help you ground or balance yourself, trust your intuition, touch them, if you feel any energy for vibes from them, then it has your name on it.
There are many crystals available with so many energies attached to them but I’m going to mention the main crystals that I know, love and use myself.
The crystals for grounding I suggest include:
Shungite – It’s particularly good if you find a pyramid shape as this represents foundation, focus and stability.
Moss Agate – It’s like nature – mossy grass , also being green, it resonates with the heart and therefore is has a nurturing energy.
Petrified Wood – This is known for transformation and gives an energy of acceptance and patience in the process of change.
Bloodstone – Gives you an energy of reaching the root of a problem and helps you move forward. Also, helps with overcoming worries in a relationship.
Red Jasper – If you need energy for stability, strength, stamina and perseverance, this is the crystal for you.
Tiger’s Eye – Energy for releasing fear, anxiety, harmony and taking action. Helps with making decisions with your emotions but with discernment and understanding.
Being still means doing nothing, quieting you mind, emptying your mind, thinking of nothing and simply being.
Find a place where you won’t be distracted or interrupted.
Relax your body either in a chair or lay down and close your eyes, breathe deeply and simply get quiet.
If for some reason you can’t sit still, other ways of being still are: watching a video of the ocean making small waves or lapping at the shore; watching a water feature; observing the plants or trees, birds any outside, etc.
Just be present and observe things without judgement. Feel what’s happening in your body, does your heart beat needs to be slower, breath deeper, focus on your breath. Just be present.
From this place learn and experience the stillness and peace within you.
Mastering non-judgement observation needs practice but once you feel that peace, you will want to feel it regularly.
Grounding Visualization Exercise
You can choose any on You-Tube, I listen to Earth Grounding, but it’s up to you and I suggest trying different meditations to find the right one for you.
Having a couple downloaded already or easily accessible then you’re sure to do it regularly and at a moments notice when you have time.
Now all you have to find is a quiet place without distractions.
Then you’re ready to go and afterwards you will be grounded.
It’s as easy as that. Really nothing to it, but like everything, it takes discipline to take the time to do it.
So, just do it for yourself!
Listen to Nature Sounds for 5 minutes, attention on breathing.
Don’t forget to – Relax, deep breaths through your nostrils, no thinking, empty your head, only listen to the sounds.
Open your eyes slowly, do you feel lighter? Feel at peace?
Knowing this feeling, wouldn’t you want to feel this all the time? No matter what’s happening in your life, you can and at any time, you just got to do it and make your mind and body feel lighter and peaceful.
Go through life by feeling, only do things that make you feel this way but if it doesn’t, you’re not meant be and something else is better out there for you.
It’s easily done when stressful situations come at a moments notice – give yourself 5. Excuse yourself from wherever you are and ground yourself for 5 minutes, then go back to the situation and deal with it rationally and go with the flow.
When dealing with situations like this it’s most likely the outcome is so much better.
I can’t emphasis enough how great this feels and so many benefits for your mind, body and soul.
