Word for today - Grounding
When your mind is racing, when you are anxious, when you are experiencing overload - grounding is a way in which you connect your physical body to the space you are in, to the earth. Grounding brings focus to what is happening to you physically, either in your body or in your surroundings, instead of being trapped by the thoughts in your mind that cause anxiousness, overload, and self-doubt.
You can connect and ground yourself in these ways:
walk barefoot in the sand, grass, or water and feel the nature connection
feel the warm sun on your sun and connect into your space
sit in a comfy chair and let your feet connect to the floor
consciously see a cord from your root chakra, the 1st energy center, connect you to the earth
use your breath to connect - focus on the air moving in and out of your lungs
use your senses: look, hear, taste, touch, and smell
You will know when you feel connected to people, spaces, and places because your body and mind will reset and calm. Use these techniques to feel present in your body and connected to the earth.
"As I focus on my breath moving in and out of my body, I feel myself connect to all that is. I am safe, I am calm, I am grounded."
