Grounding is an important tool for spiritual protection and defeating fear. Grounding reconnects us to the energy system of the earh. Some people do this by living as close to the earth as possible, sitting on the ground or walking barefoot. My daily walks by the lake are part of grounding for me. I do leave my shoes on though, it’s rocky down by the lake. 🙂
I also do a grounding exercise as needed. Take a few deep breaths, relaxing deeper with each exhale. Imagine roots coming out of your feet and growing deep into the earth all the way to the earth’s core. Feel the support of the earth as you do this.
Some people leave it there, but I prefer to connect to both heaven and earth, sending a ribbon of light out from my crown chakra (the top of the head). This will allow you to be rooted in the earth and connected to the heavens.
Grounding is essential for living on this earth. How you do it is up to you. It can be as simple or complicated as you want to make it. What is important is that we do it.
