How To Stay Grounded When You're On The Go
Swoop The Energy – Grounding yourself can be as easy as reminding your energetic field that it needs to come down a little bit. This is actually my favourite way to ground myself. Put one hand on each side of your leg just below your knee (almost like you’re in the middle of rubbing lotion on your legs). Then in on solid motion, preferably a bit slower, run both your hands at the same time downward to the ground. You want to run your hands from your knee to the tips of your toes. You may feel better after doing this just once, but I usually have to do this 2 to 3 times. Repeat on the other leg.
Black Tourmaline – Technically you can use whichever Crystals resonates with you, but Black Tourmaline is known as a powerful grounding stone that also dispels negative energy. Toss one in your pocket (or your bag) before you head out the door. Or if you don’t want to keep it on you, you can also hold it in both your hands, close your eyes, take some deep breaths and focus on the energy of the stone. Feel yourself becoming more centered.
Visualization – Close your eyes and picture your body in your minds eye, from head to toe. When you get to your feet, envision roots growing from them. The roots are going from your feet to deep within the Earth. Feel the energy of the roots pull you down into the Earth. Focus on this energy while taking a few deep breaths.
Root vegetables – These are great for your lower chakras. Your Root Chakra especially loves root vegetables. Try to incorporate them into one or two meals to help balance your lower chakras and feel more grounded.
Burn Sage – If you have a smudge stick nearby, use it! Sage is all about clearing and balancing. If you have the time, burn sage in your space as well as through your energetic field. If you don’t have a whole lot of time to spare (who does!?) then just sage yourself. While it’s burning, let the smoke encompass you. Start from the bottom and work your way up, and because I can be a little OCD when it comes to balancing, I also work my way back down again. Do what feels right for you!
Walk Outside Barefoot – Okay so if you’re on the go, this might not be a feasible option, but if you can swing it, give it a try! Our lower chakras (especially our Root chakra) LOVES being out in nature. If you talk to anyone who knows anything about Chakras, and you ask them how to balance your Root chakra or feel more grounded, they will tell you to go outside in your bare feet so the soles of your feet can absorb the Earth’s energy.
Hug It Out – Don’t underestimate the healing power of Human touch. It can work wonders! Sometimes all we need is a nice big loving, bear hug. Even if it doesn’t end up grounding you it sure does feel nice doesn’t it?
