Thank you for your interest in the Grounding Exercise & Meditation and for signing up for my newsletter. Below you’ll find your free gift. I hope you enjoy the experience of being grounded and centered as much as I do.
Ever forget where you put your keys? Ever bump into a chair by accident? What about drive somewhere not really being aware of the journey from point A to point B? These are examples of being ungrounded. When you’re grounded you feel more centered, allowing your body, mind and spirit to work for you more effectively.
There are many ways to practice grounding. Here’s one I use every day.
1) Sit upright in a chair with the soles of your feet on the ground.
2) Close your eyes.
3) Take a few deep, cleansing breaths breathing in and breathing out.
4) Visualize, sense or feel a special area in the center of the earth that’s unique to you. For instance, visualize an area in the center of the earth that has your name or initials on it. What does it look like? Is there a certain color, trees, or water? Skip this part if it’s not helpful for you.
5) Visualize, sense or feel dropping a connection from your tailbone area down into this special region in the center of the earth. It’s helpful to make the “connection” at least as wide as your hips. It can be anything that appeals to you and helps you feel connected (e.g., redwood tree, waterfall, ship’s anchor, column of light, steel girders, crystals cascading down into the center of the earth, mountain, a certain color, magnets ~ one at your tailbone and one in the center of the earth, etc.).
6) Sit and feel the connection to the earth.
Practice this daily for at least 2 minutes. Set a timer if it’s helpful.
What did this exercise bring up for you? Grab your journal and jot down some notes about your experience with grounding. Did you sense a connection to the earth? What did it feel like? Were there any emotions that went along with this exercise? Have you ever felt grounded before?
