What is grounding and what can it do for you?


Grounding is a technique you can use to make yourself feel safe and real.

You can ground yourself by creating a connection from you to the earth, specifically from your body at your 1st chakra, to the earth. This connection is called a grounding cord, and helps your body to relax and feel more at ease.

When you ground yourself to something stable and neutral like the earth itself, you create a sense of peace and wellness throughout your entire being. The earth is healing for you; you come from the earth, and it is your birthright to work with the earth to heal yourself.

Because grounding makes things real, it can also make your body real.

Especially when you're going through times of great stress and anxiety, grounding your body has a profound effect on everything you feel, experience, have, and create for yourself. When you or your body are feeling unwell or unsafe, it's hard to know where you are. Your energy gets scattered, you might feel completely unable to manifest or create anything you want, instead attracting uncomfortable energies that feel harmful to you.

Grounding protects you. If you're connected to the earth by grounding yourself to it, you have a way to safely release any energies you might have picked up in your day to day life.

Working with earth energy is another way to connect yourself to the earth.

Being in nature, under the sun and standing on the earth can help you come back to yourself and remember who you are. The earth is deeply healing for you, and you can work with the earth to heal yourself.

Especially if your daily life is stressful and busy, filled with lots of screen time, you need an earth energy break.

Grounding can help you to know who you are and be safe enough to be that, as well as to create your new creations, let go of the past, forgive and move on from old hurts. When you ground yourself daily, you change the vibration of energy that is running through you, into a more conscious one for you. As a result you are able to create more of what it is you want in your life.
