🌿 💫 🧚‍♂️ 💫 🌳 What is grounding/earthing? 🌿 💫 🧚‍♂️ 💫 🌳

Grounding is an act of connecting one's energy with the energy of Earth. It helps our body to release the energy that is not meant to be stored in our body. This helps neutralizing our body systems to a calm state which helps to feel like our beautiful selves in our own body.

When your energy/mental state seems to be unsettling, try bringing yourself to a safe space where you can close your eyes and surrender. (Outdoor - right at a beautiful tree trunk would be best but if not indoor is totally fine. :))

In such space, gently close your eyes with your left hand on your heart and your right hand above the other. Take a big inhale & exhale until you can hear and feel your rhythm of life within. This may come as a pulse, sense of unity within the body, and/or a sense of harmony within..

Once establishing a connection to your own sacred rhythm, gently bring awareness to your closed eyes and then bring awareness to your pineal gland. In that space, visualize the largest most beautiful tree you can ever imagine. This is a tree-of-life, the sacred tree.

With the sacred tree in your mind, feel the stream of sun light coming through its branches like a shower of light. Feel that light traveling the trunk illuminating its thick and large roots.

Place your hand onto the roots of this large sacred tree. Here, feel the pulse of the tree in its sacred rhythm. Take your time until you feel its rhythm.

Now, visualize your brain. From your central nervous system, through your spine, your nerves branch out from sacrum, into your legs through your feet. Bring gentle awareness to your feet and set your intention to let the branching nerves from your feet to merge with the big root of the sacred tree.

Take a moment to connect with the sacred tree. Every inhale you make, you are connecting deeper and stronger. Every exhale you make, ask for all the thoughts/energy that are not in your highest resonance to be released into the soil of Pachamama, Mother Gaia.

Take a couple more deep breath to feel the synchronization of your vibration with the sacred tree. Every breath cycle, feel your pulse and the tree's pulse to synchronize. Keep breathing until you feel a peaceful calmness as you become whole with the tree.

When ready, gently open your eyes... 🌿
