Have you become disconnected from the Earth? Do you know what grounding is. How do you feel when your body is grounded? Read on to learn more about the technique and how you can use crystals to enhance effects of grounding in today’s blog.
We shall start off with what is grounding?
Grounding is a therapeutic technique or exercise that connects you to the Earth energetically.
Grounding can help 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 states. This in turn brings feelings of peace and calm.
Common symptoms of grounding?
You feel unfocused.
You feel unmotivated, drained, lethargic.
You are indecisive.
You space out
Your sleep patterns are off or you are experiencing lack of sleep.
You are overthinking.
Introduce yourselves to crystals for grounding
Crystals can be used to assist in clearing blockages. This will help allow positive charges to flow from the Earth and into your root chakra, resulting in feeling more centered, balanced, and free from negativity. When you are grounded you are more authentically owning your own power. When choosing crystals for grounding yourself, trust your intuition, everyone has unique vibes with crystals. Each crystal will help balance or ground you in different ways, touching and assisting different parts of you.
How do you ground yourself Earthing?
Grounding energy comes from the Earth. Like an electrical outlet, you want your body to plug itself into the Earth. This is called spiritual Earthing.
Any physical activities will help in your grounding goals, especially when you are bare-footed and connected directly to the Earth’s surface. Running barefoot on the beach, ambling through the forest, walking in the grass and being with nature are all great ways to get Earthing.
Take one step ahead and visualize grounding
While holding one (or more) of your grounding crystals, stand or sit with your bare feet on the ground. Or you may place the crystal(s) around your feet.
Close your eyes or soften your gaze.
Take a few deep breaths and draw your focus and awareness to your feet.
Notice how your feet feel. Are they warm or cool? Take note of the weight you push through your body onto your feet. Allow the feeling of the Earth beneath you to flood into your whole self.
Imagine that you have roots growing down from the soles of your feet. See your roots going deep into the Earth beneath you. Imagine yourself as a tree, growing into the Earth, becoming more full and vibrant.
When you feel comfortable with the depth of your roots, imagine now that your grounding crystal(s) are set deep down with your roots. Visualize your roots wrapping themselves around the crystal(s). This will secure you firmly to the Earth.
Draw up energy from the depths of the Earth and from the grounding crystal(s), through your firmly planted roots.
