This seems to be the week of grounding so I am getting straight to the point: What are all the different ways to ground? I am really tired of reading in almost any article online, on social media or in workshops how everyone is supposed to ground through the earth, soil, trees, plants and so forth.
There seems to be a general notion in the metaphysical community to apply means of grounding with your feet being planted firmly on the ground and visualizing that your root chakra is hooked to the red or yellow, luscious core of the earth. To be honest, this idea is simply not true for a variety of people. Just like there are an infinite amount of beings, frequencies and dimensions on this planet, there are an infinite amount of ways to ground. Something I have noticed over this past year especially is that I am not anyone to ground through the earth.
It actually took me almost all my life to figure out that the only way I ground is through the water. Throwing an imaginary cord from my base to the earth center and waiting for me to feel grounded? This method is simply not going to work for me. However, holding a bottle of water, drinking plenty of water, bathing in water and swimming in the ocean is one of the many ways I found myself grounding, especially in the summer time. This also means that the so-called earthy crystals, such as Smoky Quartz, Tiger’s Eye, Carnelian and other root and sacral chakra gemstones, will not do the trick for me. They are magnificent in balancing and firing the two lower chakras up. But they won’t provide me with a feeling of grounding and being fully in my body. One of the main reasons I love the color blue is because I ground through blue (=water). Blue crystals, such as Lapis Lazuli, Larimar, Turquoise, to name a few, are my jam when it comes to grounding and feeling totally in tune with my body.
Any ocean scenery or waterfall landscape is appealing to me. This is one of the few reasons why I have lived close to the ocean for the past nine years already. I have also always felt drawn to oceanic creatures and sea life. There is something very grounding and calming for me when looking at an aquarium, fish in motion, or dolphins swimming in the ocean.
Another way I have channeled that some people ground is through the magnificent rays of sun. This would explain why sometimes the grayness of winter gets to some people more than others. Yellow, sunny crystals is just what you need in this case. Real Citrine will become a crucial part of your life. Some people need a lot of exercise in order to feel grounded again. For others it is more about the notion of peace and rest. Some other elements, such as air and fire, are also beautiful means for people to ground.
The way we ground seems to go hand in hand with the vibration that we resonate with most and how much of us is a galactic starseed or how much of us is an earth-bound starseed. The amount of past lives you have had on other planets as opposed to the amount of past lives you have had on this planet determines that experience for you. But there is SO much more to the concept. Grounding not only through the right color, vibration or frequency but also through spirit or power animals (more of this on a separate post).
However way you ground, I hope this post expands your horizon and opens you up to the endless possibilities there are for you to finally feel present in your physical body again during your earthly life experience.
Love & Light,
