Sacred Steps: Grounding to Center Oneself

Grounding Exercise

Energy follows thought, affirmation, intention and visualization.

 

Grounding exercises are a way for you to firmly anchor yourself in the present. The following grounding exercises are about using our senses (see, hear, smell, taste, touch) to build our mind and body connection in the present.

If you think, affirm, intend and visualize that you are grounded, then your energy will be grounded.

Close your eyes and imagine that you are standing inside the trunk of a giant redwood tree. You are part of the heartwood, the new wood at the center of the tree evolves from your root chakra (just at the base of your tailbone). Now, visualize the trunk of that tree extending downward, deep into the center of the earth. See the roots of this great redwood encircling the earth’s core, locking itself in and locking you in. Feel your grounding energy flowing freely down the tree’s roots into the center of the earth. Feel the grounding energy of the earth flowing freely up the tree into your body. You have created a two-way grounding connection. The earth takes away energy that is out of harmony with who you are and you receive energy from the earth that is nurturing and protective and in your highest, best interest.
