WHAT IS “GROUNDING” AND WHY SHOULD WE ALL BE DOING IT?
When we are bombarded with negativity, pain, world tragedies, disasters etc. our spirit, although still connected to us, will literally leave our body through the top of our head (Crown Chakra) to be in the higher realms where it is more pleasant. When we escape, we feel lightheaded, dizzy, spacey, like we are observing our life and not actually participating.
The reason we want to be in our physical bodies, is that we are the best versions of ourselves when we are grounded, connected and whole.
How to “Ground”
Place your feet on the floor, imagine roots growing out of your feet and down into Mother Earth. Anchor these roots into Mother Earths core. Then, call your spirit back into your body through the top of your head. Many of you will feel this, if you’ve been operating outside of your body. You may feel a drop, make sure you’re seated.
Practice this whenever you’re feeling disconnected. Let me know if you have any questions.
