How does grounding work?

how does grounding work

As we are coming into the next part of our grounding series, I want to point out that my ideas about grounding are not average, nor traditional. I would like to this of my ideas as the next step, or advanced grounding. According to most traditional sources grounding is the co-mingling of our energy with the Earth, which help to relieve stress, anxiety, energy overload, and to keep us balanced between Earth and Heavenly energies. If we become too airy, too full of exuberance, thoughts, inspiration, we are told to ground those energies out and maintain balance and equilibrium.

But this isn’t exactly what I’m finding in my own explorations of grounding from a space of embodied soul. I want take a closer look at the mechanics of what seems to be happening from my perspective. My first step is to center. And if you haven’t read anything else by me, you can see my take on centering here.

To sum up it up though, for me centering is allowing Soul back into body, to be in holistically in alignment, so that our natural power, Wisdom, Love, and Presence can flow freely. Infrequently does this happen without some adjustments and energy work. I literally loosen up any dark or slower moving places within me, find the root, love up the root, and with love, raise the vibe in those denser energy places so they mostly in sync with everything else. Looking at what I just said though, it implies I am adding different qualities of love to my being just to steady things out. Centering is what steadies my being out. Not grounding.

Once I’m steadily flowing, then I ground. I take the Divine energies (some I had to consciously apply, others I woke up experiencing), which have now co-mingled with my bodily energies, and I allow it flow to that sweet spot at the center of the Earth. As the energies co-mingle with the Earth energies they begin to take on weight and substance. I experience that a certain quality of energy is added to the mix which allows these energies to acquire a more Earthly form…something that can actually create ripple through our reality. I don’t necessarily know the form it will take, speech, writing, organization. But these energies somehow become more real and part of my reality once they have been Earthed. At this point they come back up in my vessel, ready to be used.

But now hold a minute…

chakras

I didn’t give my energy to Earth, not unless I specifically thought to bless it. When I took energies into Earth, Earth didn’t just strip away the energy or it’s intention. In fact, it seemed to refine it and give it more umph. So…Earth added energy to the mix. This isn’t exactly what tradition explains how grounding should go. While traditional knowledge doesn’t give me much help here, my mind does recall someone else talking about this.

Carolyn Myss, famed New Age healing guru, explained this exact scenario in the “Anatomy of Spirit” as the process of manifesting our Divine Works on the Earthly Plane. In fact, in that book she charts out the course Divine Energy takes through our chakras to become grounded and ultimately manifest!!! Okay, more on that next week, in my future blog of “How to Improve you grounding practices”.

Grounding isn’t just connecting with the Earth, it’s an essential step in the manifestation process.

This is is HUGE!!

When I add Divine energy to my own, and then ground it, I am manifesting the qualities of love I intuited I needed…the world needed. I am literally grounding my own reality. By extension, every time I center and ground, I am also choosing a new future, a future where I have everything I need.

 

grouding is manifestation: the universe is responding to who you think you are

Trippy, right?

What I do know about these energies, is that we are their host, partners in crime, so to speak. But they are not really personal to us. This is our personal method of tapping into something greater than us. The more each of us ground the energies we need to feel well and whole, the more reality changes, and more of these energies will be available on this plane. The more in oneness we have the ability to become. I’ll make no guess as to how that will exactly be. I’m not even sure it’s healthy to guess at such things. All I really know is that coming into Oneness, grounding these energies, feels good. For the longest time I didn’t think feeling good like that on a daily basis was possible.

Grounding is one of the essential practices of manifesting Heaven on Earth, or at least our own personal Heavens. No external world changes happen without first centering and grounding a high vibe within our personal sphere of influence and reality. For me, the easiest, path of least resistance method, of making all that happen is through feeling. Centering and grounding feels amazing to me, it changes my reality for the better because it leaves me feeling so good I just want to keep doing it.

Let me know in the comments, lovely lightworker:

What feeling states do you need to manifest?

What do you think would feel so good, you wouldn’t want to stop feeling that way?

How would being in that feeling state change your reality?

 

 

Dealing with high energies like eclipses and retrogrades

Dealing with high energies like eclipses and retrogrades

 

With the high energies from this last week, like many other sensitives out there, I just couldn’t seem to get a grip on myself. Old issues, old words, judgments against myself swirled through my head day and night. And for no particular cause and effect reason. And I was utterly exhausted from the tumultuous night-time forays into my past. I was sorely tempted to be more than a little grumpy.

I will say this upfront I don’t believe the Universe gives us things or circumstances to make us suffer. And I will also say that each of these periods of time have different effects. Listening to resources like Elizabeth Peru or Mystic Mama can give you an idea of the types of themes that might get visited during each of these high energy periods. 

Let’s take a quick example here, Mercury appears to go retrograde every couple of months. It varies in length. Generally speaking, Mercury in retrograde t means there will be less than direct energy in the realms of communication and travel. Does it mean awful things will happen to you? No more than any other time. Does it mean you will get into a fight or miss your flight, maybe. But those could happen at any other time as well. It does mean that if you have issues or triggers around communication you will be given chances to recognize it and clear it. Maybe you need to learn to speak your needs, stand up for yourself, or get clarity on why you always seem to feel misunderstood.

I know when things seem to go wrong, we want to let our most immediate reaction lead. We want to yell, scream, sigh in frustration, or stomp around the house while we look for our phones, trying to get the car to start, or calling the cable company because the internet is on the fritz.

But I want you to realize something.

Just recognizing this state of off-ness is the point where you need to think about going to take a bubble bath or grabbig a novel, instead of pushing forward with anything serious.

It’s during times, when the whole world seems more chaotic than usual, that we fall back into a bad habits. We think that we have done something wrong, it must be us, maybe we’re being punished. We want to react badly, chuck our good intentions out the window, because we don’t actually believe we are enough, able to cope without falling apart, and/or things won’t go our way unless we make it go our way. But isn’t it funny how the printer always seems to break when we are rushing to get something done or during a retrograde?  Or is that we are already operating under duress and aren’t able to get into a flow state that would help us get around small problems? It’s the thinking, the fear, that is driving this. Planetary bodies can break printers.

Mercury did not come down and take sledge hammer to your printer. Not psychically, not cosmically, not even as an allegory!

 

What I usually find when shifting back to this a Soul-centered state is just how hard I’ve been pushing my agenda on the Universe. I wasn’t in flow, like I thought I was. When we’re coming a low vibe, that pushing or controlling of our flow state actually begins to impair our ability to flow rather quickly. The more drained and discouraged we feel, the more off we get and into fear or insecurity. The further from Soul and center, the faster the downward spiral.

 

But our thoughts and plans that’s all simply expectation and conjecture. Our wounded inner child having a fit because it’s afraid of feeling hurt.  Ego, our potential threat alarm system, doesn’t actually know if there is a threat or not. All it really knows is that we are feeling upset and there must be a reason. So it makes all sorts of guesses as to why that could be. The truth, however, lies in integrating Soul into your daily living and into your problem solving.  Preferably before we take the sledge hammer to the printer!

 

From a higher perspective, the soul perspective, the realm of energy, the first step to healing is always the same. Relax and go back to center. Click To Tweet

 

Pin me!

 

And that is the gift of the high energy periods we have throughout the year.  Soul-self is being strengthened so that we can more easily see how we’ve allowed our wounded inner children to run our lives. In the daily grind of things, our connection with Soul can get muddled. During the high energy periods, Soul brought into our awareness. That transition feels chaotic to us because our inner children don’t understand why we can’t give them the reigns again, at least at first. The tantrum our inner children might throw may seem more exaggerated because Soul is trying to put things back into perspective. The gift in these high vibe times, also comes in learning to love into that fear and love our inner wounded child. On the surface this may sound just another call for more self TLC, but this goes deeper.

We have spent many years in self-abusive judgment patterns, layers upon layers of shame and guilt. The high energies times are working to strip away these layers. It might seem uncomfortable, we may get triggered. But once we understand what’s being worked on and what fear-based beliefs challenged, the process becomes more natural. When we are able to love our fears for what they are, simple messages about where we need more love in our lives, then there is no struggle or resistance to these high-energy times. These retrogrades, eclipses, and other astrological events become miraculous and healing.

Divinely Aligned Vlog: March 8th why high energies might not feel so good

high energies vlog

Ok, first of all I promise to remember to turn off my notifications next time I vlog! So sorry about the interruptions, I’m still getting the hang of the doing of the tech.

But onward or upward, I wanted to be me in the moment for this series, so this is what you get! You get me leaning against the window in my bedroom to catch the wonderful blue skies outside.

So what’s important about today and today’s message, well it’s one of those high energy days. It’s coming into a super new moon, we’re coming into eclipse energy, and we’re having a master day today. And what all those high energies, you would expect to be feeling pretty darn good, right?

That’s not always the case. If we are not in our truth, our most Divine self, that high energy might hit you like a brick wall. You might even feel a little flu-ish or completely flustered. Watch the latest vlog to get some ideas about how you might get more in-flow with the day and high energies.
