Grounding is connecting to earth energy.
Our bodies have a lot of energy and sometimes more than we can handle. Grounding is a way to release that energy into Mother Earth while absorbing the energy we need from her.
It is literally keeping you rooted in place emotionally so you are that strong tree who can take on any hurricane.
Ever see a Muslim pray? Notice they have five points of their bodies touching the ground at the same time. Their forehead, palms, and knees. Also their feet. They are literally releasing excess energy into the ground.
Even electricians need to be grounded before they do their work. Being grounded literally protects you from shocks. When you are grounded you have a neutral charge aka balanced energy field.
So How Do You Get Grounded?
I will list a few grounding tools I created to help you get centered in a moment, but first I want to explain what Earthing is.
Earthing. This is just going outside in the yard barefoot. Take it a step further and give your feet a mud soak. Get creative with essential oils (Lavender is a natural antibiotic and kills germs if you’re worried about the germs).
If you live near water, stop by the lake or the beach and just sit and breathe on the shore or dock. Maybe get your feet wet a little bit and dig those toes into the sand.
Get into a prayer position: Knees, Palms and Forehead touching the ground simultaneously while visualizing excess energy that you don’t need pouring into the earth. And give thanks for the abundance of the earth as she fills you up with the good vibes you need.
I often burn white sage or incense to set the mood for grounding. Nag Champa’s Egyptian Musk is a sweet, musky and earthy fragrance that lasts for hours.
I created these Grounding Tools and they are made with healing crystals that you can wear as or meditate with and will keep you grounded and focused as you wear them.
I have these available grounding tools in my online store.
Use it to set the mood for any meditation or warm gathering
Obsidian is a stone that creates a protective shield around your aura and brings up issues that you need to deal with head on.
Jade is a heart healing stone that will help you deal with those issues in a loving manner.
Together these gems form a circle of protection around you as well as a shield of divine love.
This mix of gems resonate with frequencies of protection, health, abundance, intuition, and grounding.
Together in one bracelet this mix creates an auric shield that blocks negative energy, hooks, and thought projections.
Custom Jewelry Options
I can also create a unique custom jewelry piece for you to use to stay grounded.
Healing crystals that I have on hand for Grounding are Tiger eye, Black Tourmaline, 2 Smoky Quartz geodes (pendants only) and Onyx. For more information, visit the links below.
