What is grounding? I have first learned about grounding years ago when I was still interested in the Wiccan practices. I bought a lot of books and started to research spells and everything I could about them. This is where I first came across grounding and grounding meditation.
GOOGLE ADSENSE For years I've been associating grounding with Wicca, however at some point I came across it in a completely other context as well, so this is when I discovered that while Wiccans are using grounding for becoming connected to the Earth and basically 'return' from a meditation session by bringing the awareness back to the body, others are using the exact same procedures as well.
There are many meditation types that are using grounding before and after the session. Even various guided meditations let you return easily from the session and help you ground using various techniques. So here are a few techniques that you can use during meditation or after to ground yourself to the earth.
Symptoms Of Not Being Grounded
But before that, let me tell you a few of the symptoms you might feel when you are not grounded. I'm sure you have felt a few of these at least during your meditation sessions or otherwise.
- You feel lightly dizzy and disoriented
- You might have a clumsiness about you that is not characteristical of you
- People say that you are still 'in the clouds'
- You are forgetting basic things
- Your energy levels are very low and you feel low overall
You need to ground yourself not only for meditation but also any other energy work, such as yoga, massage therapy, visualization, doing tai chi, reiki and any kind of psychic work.
Here is a small grounding meditation exercise that you can do at any time you feel any of the symptoms above.
