7 Ways To Ground Spiritually
There are times when we lose touch with earth and require to ground our
physical and energy bodies to restore balance. Some people tend to
be more grounded than others, and this has everything to do with our
chakra system. Just as our bodies are in a fluctuating state of health
depending on how we treat it, so too are our energy bodies. The chakras
(attached to our etheric body) can go out of balance, and overusing the
higher chakras can cause an imbalance. This is why some psychics may
need to ground themself after doing psychic work. Some of us are
naturally quite ungrounded and so need to
go to greater lengths to remain grounded.
Signs Of Being Ungrounded
There are telltale signs when we are feeling ungrounded. They are:
- dizziness or vertigo
- feeling "out of it"
- not fully present, unable to concentrate
- daydream a lot
- accident prone
- feeling of not belonging on earth, or not aligned to earth
- like a cat you are half in-half out / in another dimension
- feeling of floating above your body during the day
You can see from this list that being grounded vital to live a centered
Whilst on earth, it helps to be plugged firmly into this
realm so that we are fully present and make the most of our time here.
1. Center Yourself - Find Yourself
Before we can ground ourself, we have to know who we are
Sounds simple, but people who have difficulties with grounding often
become uncentered and tend to bleed energetically into those around
them, especially empaths.
To avoid this issue, we learn to continually bring our focus back to
ourself. Focus on what you are thinking. Focus on what you are
feeling. Reject the energy others are projecting onto you, and solely
center on who you are. It may seem harsh at first to ignore
the feelings and desires of others to focus on our own desires,
but with practice we quickly learn the benefits of this practice
as we become so much more clearer within ourself.
2. Be in Nature
Nature grounds us quickly. When I used to do readings, I would sit for
hours each day doing reading after psychic reading. When I would decide
to go into nature, I would sit or jog - almost unseeing of what
was around me as I slowly came back into focus. I could jog for twenty
minutes barely seeing the scenery, then upon jogging back, I would
begin to slowly look at the trees and the river and slowly come back to
earth, blissfully so. Even then I would go a bit 'in and out' until I
finished jogging and was earthed back in myself.
Walk around in bare feet on the grass or earth, walk along a beach
(good for cleansing as well) or hug a tree. Lie and stare at the sky,
let the nature sink in and ground you once again into earth.
As already mentioned, movement will help as we move with our body to
center physically. Stretch, jump, dance to music, play drums (very
grounding), yoga, tai chi or whatever it is that helps you. Swim, surf,
run, do weights, boxing, stamping feet into the ground...whatever you
can think of.
4. Alternate Your Activities
Try not to sit for hour after hour in the same spot doing the same
thing. If at a desk or at work, try to go for an invigorating walk in
your tea and lunch breaks to ground. Walk around the office, or
physically go and talk to someone instead of emailing the person who
five meters away. Find excuses to move or do different activities.
Sitting still for long periods concentrating is not good for the body
or the mind. Ask your boss if you can do other activities for an hour
or so, whatever they need done.
5. Eating Meat
If you are a meat eater but have been eating less meat or hardly any at
all, beef is actually the most grounding food, and usually grounds the
most spacey person in less than 24 hours. If you are a vegetarian or
and are constantly ungrounded and dizzy, it may be the only way to
truly halt a severe case of dizziness. Eating in general is a grounding
6. Grounding Crystals & Stones
There are many grounding stones and crystals that may help if worn in
jewellery or carried in a pocket. Such stones include carnelian,
hematite, obsidian and smoky quartz. See this article for all 12 grounding stones
7. Grounding Meditation
There are many different types of meditations that use visualisation to
help ground us back into the earth. This is a good way to go about
achieving a quick grounding, especially if exercise or other forms of
grounding are out of the picture. One of my favourite meditations
involves visualising the pillar of white light coming down from the sun
and through the center of the body, down through all the chakras
individually. Then it leaves the body from the root chakra and travels
down deep into the earth, reaching the heart of mother earth. I imagine
it winding around the earth's core three times before it rises back up
through the crust and re-enters the body. Then it travels through all
the chakras again before leaving via the crown chakra and travels
upwards through the sun. This meditation works wonders.
If you do other meditation work, it is important to ground this way
before coming out of meditation, or we end up feeling spacey and out of
it (so much so it can be dangerous to drive if we don't ground after
meditation). A good meditation takes us right out of our body, so it is
vital to ground back into the body and back into the planet.
