Grounding: The Gift of Being in Your Body

Grounding - The Gift of Being in Your Body 1

“Be here now.” We see this phrase everywhere, but are we actually embodying it? Are we consciously present and in our experience here on Earth? Often, the most simple of phrases hold the biggest treasures. Now more than ever, we need to be here now. We are in the midst of a global ascension and are experiencing a multitude of energetic shifts both off and on our planet. Being anchored into the Earth allows you to go with the flow of these new planetary changes while remaining safe and secure in your body.

As an energy practitioner, I’ve observed that the one thing every client of mine has in common is that they are not grounded into the Earth and fully occupying their bodies.

When you are ungrounded, life becomes chaotic and confusing. To be out of body is to be out of control. How can you focus when you’re not actually here? My clients suffering from anxiety, nervousness, negative thoughts, paranoia, uncertainty, rage, insecurity, lethargy, exhaustion, and full body illnesses all have one thing in common: they are out of their bodies, and when you leave your body, you invite negative and heavy energies in. Moreover, clients holding trauma in their root chakra are by far the most ungrounded. This is because our grounding cord is located at the tailbone, and our energy streams from the crown chakra down through the root chakra before entering the grounding cord and making its way down to the core of the Earth. Clients with blocks in their root chakra lack the space to allow a healthy flow of energy to connect them from their grounding cord to the planet and release their trauma into the Earth. They go through life like a balloon floating around filled with toxic energies just waiting to pop. Not only is this a dangerous way to live, its not actually living.

As children of the Earth, we are made to thrive and live happy and fulfilled lives here. We incarnated into this planet to have a human experience, and the only way to do so is to actually live in the human body you were given.

The first thing I do at the start of a Quantum Sphere Healing session is ground the client to the center of the Earth and connect them to the unconditional love of Mother Earth. Their heavy energy and toxins are dumped and recycled into the planet and a stream of healing light is sent up through the grounding cord into the client’s energetic body. The client immediately feels a calming, loving sensation of safety and security. This is how it truly feels to be present and in your body.

The benefits of being grounded include being in touch with your physical and emotional body sensations, mental clarity, immunity from illness and disease, calmness and stillness, patience, relaxation, focus, self-trust, feeling safe in your body, and an overall feeling of inner peace. More importantly, grounding is how you make sure that all the self-work and healing work you do actually sticks. Without grounding, the energetic healings, spiritual insights, and positive shifts we experience will fade away because they are not permanently imprinted into our cellular memory and anchored into the Earth. It is one thing to absorb information intellectually, but to truly experience healing and spirituality, your body and energy field need to relate those experiences to each other in order to make the corresponding shift. We are made of stars, but we are also made of the elements of the Earth and have a deep connection with the soul of our Earth Mother. We are in her womb.

The best thing about grounding is that there really is no wrong way to do it. You may already have your own way that works for you. If that’s the case, congratulations, you’re doing Earth right! For the rest of us, here are some tips:

1. Walking in Nature

Any activity that has your feet planted firmly to the ground will help eliminate energetic toxins. Walking barefoot on the ground will give you direct contact and allow you to feel the Earth’s magnetism. Plus, everyone feels better when they’re connected to nature. Take a walk on the beach or go hiking, allow yourself to feel how freeing it is to explore our beautiful planet and connect to her soul.


2. Grounding Exercise

This is a special exercise I practice twice a day and teach to my clients. I also do it anytime I feel overwhelmed and need a “reset” button.

Stand up and take a deep breath. Close your eyes and imagine a golden ball of energy above your head. This is your personal energy source. Now imagine a stream of energy pouring down from the ball. Open the top of your head like a funnel and let this golden, healing light enter your body and slowly fill you. Go slow, taking deep breaths and allowing each breath to pull the stream down and fill every part of you. Let it stream down your tailbone and both of your feet, creating one solid stream of energy. Now send this energy down to the core of the Earth, or the heart of the Earth. Anchor yourself into Mother Earth’s unconditional, loving soul. Use your imagination and picture this in a way that’s most helpful to you. Sometimes I imagine dropping an anchor into the core of the Earth, or Mother Earth’s hand reaching up and holding my cord like a child holding on tight to a beloved balloon.

Now hold this anchor in for at least a minute and allow yourself to truly feel the sensation of being grounded. I always send up our Mother’s unconditional loving light and feel it energize me and connect me to her soul. I thank her and send her gratitude and appreciation for being my home and for taking care of me and the rest of humanity. Don’t forget to get visual! Play around, change the colors, and make it feel as real to you as it actually is. The more you practice, the deeper the grounding sensation will feel. Overtime, you will be able to discern when you are grounded versus when you are out of body.

Everyday we are blasted with varying frequencies and vibrations, both on and off our planet. Some of the frequencies we are being inundated with are synthetic signaling and some are organic. Getting out into nature can help us directly connect with the organic energies so that we can receive them unfiltered.

The greatest gift you can give your body is to live in it — to be present in it and create a safe space for your soul to thrive. Be here now, it is as simple as going outside and feeling the Earth beneath your feet. Clear your mind and make yourself at home in your body, Mother Earth will do the rest.
