"Keep your eyes on the stars and your feet on the ground." - Theodore Roosevelt
"I still have my feet on the ground, I just wear better shoes." - Oprah Winfrey
One of the most important things I teach students is how to ground their energy. This easy-to-learn skill creates a solid foundation of support between yourself, your body and surroundings. It gives you a strong connection between your body, mind and spirit, so you can access and use more of your daily energy.
Many people think of grounding as taking off your shoes and running barefoot through the grass...
or sticking your toes in the ocean... which definitely works!
While those are great ways to experience earth energy, they're probably not that feasible for people who work in offices or don't have time to frolic in nature during a typical busy day.
Grounding with visualization is quick, easy and very effective. It's also a great way to relieve stress - you can use it to release any thoughts or feelings you'd rather not hang onto. You can also use it to release physical tiredness, and even minor aches and pains. You can be grounded while sitting, standing, walking, dancing or driving your car. You can even be grounded when you're lying down!
Because grounding is such a great skill that everyone can use, I've created a free audio meditation to show you how to do it. Enjoy!
Until next time - stay inspired!
