Grounding, a technique that helps you to stay in the present moment
What Does it Mean to be Grounded?
It means that you are present in your body each moment, connected with the Earth, aware of your surroundings, feeling centered, balanced, and calm no matter what’s going on around you.
Over time we have lost our connection with the Earth and how to draw in healing energy from the Earth itself.
Grounding is an exercise that connects you energetically to the Earth. It allows you to be more authentically in your body, in the present moment, and receive nourishing energy.
Whenever possible, walk with bare feet on the Earth
Visualise beautiful strong healthy roots coming out of your feet, penetrating deep, at least a meter into the Earth, anchoring you, keeping you firm and solid on the surface of the Earth
Envisage a thick rope connected to your Root Chakra which is located at the base of the spine and controls the energy for kinaesthetic feeling and movement. The Root Chakra is the foundation of physical energy and spiritual energy for the body. On the other end of your rope is a heavy anchor. Imagine this anchor sinking through all the layers of earth until it comes to rest in the center of the Earth’s core. Once the anchor has settled you can feel the firmness of the rope which is keeping you grounded and present in your body
Your Body Needs its Connection to the Earth
By walking barefoot on the Earth you transfer free electrons from the Earth’s surface into your body that spread throughout your tissues.
The effect is sufficient to maintain your body at the same negatively charged electrical potential as the Earth. This simple process is called ‘grounding,’ and its effect is one of the most potent antioxidants we know of. Grounding has been shown to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, improve sleep, enhance well-being, and much more.
Every time you take a breath of air or a drink of water or absorb the ultraviolet light from the sun, you are connecting to the Earth and using it for your very survival. Grounding is really one more extension of this; one more way that your body is intelligently designed to co-exist as a part of nature.
