     As I’ve previously said in the post “The Grounds for Grounding”, grounding can be good for

  • grounding your energy in the physical plane,
  • or grounding out energy you no longer wish to contain into the Earth to be transformed.

     The Heaven and Earth meditation (see the posts for August 3, August 9Aug 16 and August 23) is good for both kinds of grounding. As we go through other ways to ground, I’ll include guidelines on what activities are better for which kind of  grounding.

     That being said, if you’ve been working metaphysically with a whole bunch of energy and are starting to feel a bit spacey, one of the best ways to ground your personal energy is physical activity.

     Some  options:

  • Put both of your feet flat on the ground.
  • Breath deeply.
  • Stretch  (take your cue from how a cat stretches).
  • Get up and walk around.
  • Clap your hands.
  • Stomp your feet.
  • Do jumping jacks.
  • Dance (dance hard!)

     When you do something physical, you strengthen your connection with your body and the physical world around you. This helps you function better in that physical world,

     When chosing physical activity to ground your personal energy, there are a couple of factors to consider.

  • If you’re poorly grounded, this can affect your alertness, balance and co-ordination. You may wish to start activities involving vigorous movement slowly, to prevent falling.
  • When chosing a grounding activity, it’s also good to consider your surroundings. In some settings, dancing or jumping jacks may startle or alarm the people around you.

     Just remember that, when you’re less than grounded, your body has lots of ways to re-establish those energetic connections.

     More ways to ground are on the horizon…
