    Grounding...is getting back to earth literally for me.


    Sometimes you get such an energetic high that you need to come down, stabelize and rediscover your internal point of gravity


    I love to just sit down on a patch of grass, with my hands touching the earth and my eyes closed, relaxing and breathing deeply. Concentrating on the earth beneath me, on that moment in time.


    When there isn't a patch of grass handy, just sitting croslegged with a certain crystal (desert rose, tiger eye) in my hands,relaxing, closing my eyes and breathing deeply, and flowing my energy and my thoughts through the crystal will do the trick.


    Anyone else?

    I'll be trying the one with the desert rose, so thanks for that, I tend to visualise roots coming out through my feet and burrowing deep into the earth

    Hematite does it for me. Sometimes it's too strong for me, and I have to avoid it.

    I know that this might sound silly, or even debatable, but normally whenever I eat salad, I feel well grounded. I'm digesting produce from the earth.

    Hi Katiecat, I really love your avatar

    I've never founfd hematite strong, funny how stones affect us all differently.
    As for eating the salad, if you feel well grounded then imo that's what works for you, even if others do think it's debatable.

    I am a well grounded person, and usually don't think about it.
    But if I had to, I would run some energy down my body through my feet into the earth.
    Material artists, Tai Chi all us it to be solid with the ground. You can run energy all the way to the center of the earth if you like.
    And it does not take very long.

    I use this all the time. I visualize (with my feet flat on the floor, of course) roots going from my feet, going into the Earth, to the core of the Earth, and visualize white light come up the roots up my feet, up my legs, and up my spine.

    Peace~ :hugz:

    I thought id add to this, as I dont know enough to actually advice any one, lol. specially not those here.



    But yes im looking for adecent groundign video if any one knows any please let me know. thanks.

    As for me, rite now, besides meditation on root ground chakra etc, I visualize my breath going down and imagine roots growing threw my feet into the ground, then do the same again and imagine it from your spine going down, then down down down, threw the soil, threw the soft hard rock, threw the lava, threw the centre of the earth and ground there.

    then let go of eveyr thing and work your way up, and then back in the same way. all the way up the root chakra and threw your body etc.

    grounding cord visualization

    Post  UverEX on Sat Jun 30, 2012 9:13 pm

    jim selff teaches this one.
    Start sitting or standing comfortably
    Imagine a chain or rod made of light reaching from your root chakra to the core of the earth making a sturdy tight connection
    Breath in energy from the core of the earth to your root chakra then exhale energy back to the earths core
    once this part of the visualization is easier you can add a layer of protection to your chain or rod by visualizer a barrier of sorts around it. some imagine bark of a tree others a hollow cylinder of bricks took keep your chain or whatever safe.

    to me getting the chain connected is hard enough. also i imagine the earths center further or closer to me each time lol. in the least this excersise silences unconscious chit chat of the mind and encourages breathing making it meditative.

    Violet, thanks! There are more layers beyond that but like you said there is practice to be done before im ready to add them hahaha. :banghead: Ps i like this guy lol.

    Eyeopen, yours is very similar, I didn't even realize. Now however, I have read the whole thread =P. Ill try adding that to my grounding exercise eventually.

    When i practice grounding i go for a physical sensation guided by a mental image and breath.
    As the limit to breath, feeling and use imagination expands so will the depth of grounding in a being.

    Look up Jim Self Grounding cord on google if you want to see a video of him explain the grounding cord.
    I cant post external links yet T_T

    I do my yoga to feel grounded, especially I focus on the root chakra poses, like the tree pose, and bending tree pose, mountain pose ect. When I do these, I invision myself being rooted to the ground like a firm tree.

    Yes, me too. I don't feel I have to do anything special to be grounded.
