Grounding is a word often heard when speaking about energy healing and chakra balancing. The term Grounding when applied to energy describes an energy that is steady, stable and produces feelings of security. The term Grounding can also refer to a process used to create this kind of energy flow and frequency.
A good supply of grounded energy produces calmness, an experience of being more centered, present with a greater ability to focus.
Grounding: A Base for Health, Well Being and Change
Grounding is part of a strong foundation for physical and emotional well-being. It is also a desirable prerequisite for other energy work. Most of us can benefit from additional grounding practice given the type of lives we lead. We are always being encouraged to send our attention and energy outward. A result is that we can become separated from ourselves—our true nature, power and connection to all that is positive or desired. Our ability to create, to receive, to connect with others in a healthy way, our physical health….all can be compromised if we are not adequately centered and grounded within.
The Root Chakra and its energy is the foundation of our physical and psychological well-being so it is an important area to attend to when wishing to bring positive change of any kind to your life. Strong, stable grounded energy allows an easier release of old, stuck or toxic energy as well as contributing to our physical health.
Change always triggers the energy in our root chakra. As we move energetically from one year to the next and continue to experience great change globally, it is fairly safe to assume that each of us will have some issue going on in our lives that is challenging our root chakra energy. A bit of introspection and discovery can help us position ourselves so we can navigate change and uncertainty more gracefully.
Centering and grounding methods serve us well in general but become even more important as we navigate changing times. Here is a demonstration of one way to create a healthier flow of grounded energy in your field.
