We’re taking it “old school” this week to talk about the importance of Grounding Your energy and why it’s a bit easier than putting our bare feet in the dirt all the time.
While I admit Earthing is fun and can certainly help, there are so many ways to ground our energy.
But First let’s talk about What Grounding really is in case you’re new to the whole thing or WHY it’s so important to stabilize your energy.
WHAT THE HECK IS GROUNDING?
The non-woo definition of grounding is essentially Feeling Safe, Supported and Connected to the World around you.
Instead of Feeling like an “airy fairy” drifting through the dimensions of space(I see you, I’ve been there 😉 ) .
When we are in a place where we feel safe, supported and connected, our energy feels stable and secure.
If we don’t feel this way – we’re usually getting caught up in Fear, scarcity and lack due to this HUGE thing going on with being a Human called our
So we can actually demystify Grounding and bring in some biology/neurology.
Our “Survival Mechanism” is basically our Fight/Flight Mode (or freeze if you really want to get into it), which is here to help us survive and keep us safe.
So In this state where we’re in Fight/Flight mode we tend to be in a reactive state which goes into ‘problem solving’ mode to keep us safe.
It’s totally normal to feel this way. There’s nothing good or bad about this, it’s part of our natural human instinct. However, when we get stuck in this place over a long period of time – we become ungrounded and Super reactive to our surroundings.
I call this Autopilot mode because it tends to make us reactive and cycle our thoughts to the past and future.
(If you’ve been with me for a while, we call this getting stuck in your own blackhole 😛 )
SIGNS YOUR ENERGY IS UNGROUNDED INCLUDE:
Here are some Classic Signs your Energy is Ungrounded:
- Feeling Frantic or Anxious
- Pressure: “gotta gotta gotta get it done”
- feeling the world is out to get you – *sly eyes*
- Constantly Focused on Lack, Not enough and Scarcity
- Confused, Scattered, Spacey, hard to focus or even dizzy
- Feel Disconnected: Dissociated or Disconnected from the world around us
- Our physical needs feel threatened, It brings up a trigger around our money, housing, employment or health
- FEAR TAKES OVER OUR LIFE.
- Don’t feel supported in life or with people
- Low Energy
- Hard to manifest or Meet Goals to move forward = Often stuck in Past Stories
- Restless, Always Running
- Feel you don’t belong here (because you’re disconnected from yourself)
HOW TO START GROUNDING YOUR ENERGY EASIER THAN EVER
I’d like to mention learning how to ground yourself is an everyday practice, (it’s not a one and done kinda thing) but with continuous focus, it gets incredibly easy.
When we Learn to Ground ourselves, we’re working with The Components of our Root Chakra.
Our Root Chakra Focuses on our Needs being Met which means our Safety, our Security, How we feel connected and supported by the world around us.
If we have issues in our Root Chakra we will often attract experiences around Family, money, housing, employment or health.
Questions to Ask: Do you feel Supported, Connected, financially secure & safe in your reality?
If not, chances are you’re feeling ungrounded which is making your energy feel unstable, unfocused, lacking clarity and probably getting stuck in a fear pattern.
In Today’s Video Post I’m going deep into sharing 5 Easy Peezy ways to Get your Energy Grounded and Why it’s important for your well-being:
Here’s your Recap:
Here are some Easy ways to keep yourself grounded:
1. Keeping Yourself Fed & Nourished with Protein Rich Foods
2. Use Physical Movement to get out of the Head & Snap back into the body
3. Focus on Your Environment To Get Present, Back into the Details & Work on your Home Life (aka invest in decluttering)
4. Get Connected
5. Tap into the Feelings of Support & Safety
Of course we can also go out in nature, walk in nature, go hiking, visualize ourselves growing roots or put our bare feet on the earth – all good things. Sometimes I just crave time in nature, that’s natural. 🙂
However what if it’s cold, what if you don’t like visualization or what if you just need something simple?
Doing any of the five things listed above will help ANYONE ground their energy and keep their energy stabilized without even leaving their house.
we’re always connected regardless if we’re inside or outside, we just need to center in. 😉
