Grounding connects you to earth energy. When you are grounded, you feel like you are actually in your body, present, aware, sensing, alive, attuned to your emotions, attuned to your environment, focused, clear, and calm.
Since we spend so much time indoors, looking at screens, driving our cars, traveling, juggling a lot of moving pieces, we are often in our heads, thinking, strategizing, ruminating, worrying, stressing out, and feeling like we are in a perpetual hurry, moving from one thing to the next.
We become ungrounded just by living our “normal” lives, responding to daily experiences. It can also happen more suddenly if we are sent into fight-flight-freeze, or if something triggers us.
You know that feeling when you arrive at your destination, but you don’t quite know how you got from A to B? Or when you can’t remember if you’ve locked your car. Or you don’t know where you put something, even though you know you just had it in your hand.
In any of those situations, it’s time to get grounded.
It will take you a minimum of maybe 5 minutes, maybe a little longer if you are in a bad state, but you will feel transformed afterwards.
Try this grounding meditation:
Begin to notice the difference in how you feel before, and after grounding. This can lead you into a greater awareness of when you are ungrounded, and taking the actions needed to come back to center. To come back to your body. To come back to you.
