Your guide to spiritual grounding

Spiritual Grounding

Estimated reading time: 4 minutes

Spiritual grounding is when we connect the body to the earth. Bringing balance to both your physical body and emotions. When you are ungrounded, you may feel certain symptoms; these could include:

  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty Concentrating
  • Feelings of Disconnection
  • Clumsiness
  • Lightheadedness
  • Shakiness
  • Sickness
  • Light Sensitivity
  • Forgetfulness
  • Nervousness

All of this is due to being out of balance. Anyone can need grounding; however, it is essential to correct your balance if you are an energy worker or healer. (These symptoms can also be linked to other conditions and illnesses. If they persist or make you unwell, we recommend seeing your GP).

How to ground yourself spiritually

There are many ways to ground yourself, and below are some of our favourites. If you have never tried any of these, choose a way that resonates with you. As everyone is different, what works for one person, may not work as well for someone else.

Food for grounding

Eating is a way of nourishing the physical body, and as a result, it produces a closer connection with mother earth. Ensuring your diet is healthy and balanced will give you a more robust platform to ground from. Many believe root vegetables are best for grounding since they grow rooted underground; they are closer to mother nature and therefore own powerful grounding properties. Whatever you decide to eat is up to you. However, try and stick with a healthy choice and take the time to eat and digest your food properly. Be in the moment and savour each flavour.

Natures benefits

The most obvious of all spiritual grounding techniques is getting closer to mother nature. There are many ways of connecting with the earth. These include:

  • Earthing – Walk barefoot outside and feel the ground underfoot. Focus on how the earth feels., close your eyes and connect with mother earth.
  • Gardening – Feel the soil between your fingers. Touch the beautiful plants and become one with nature.
  • Meditating outside – Sit on the ground and feel it beneath your body. Think of a cord connecting you to the earth and anchoring you., keeping you at one with mother earth.

Yoga and spiritual practice

Yoga is the ideal grounding exercise since it is steeped in spiritual practice. Try taking it outside to feel its grounding benefits even more. Move slowly and feel the ground beneath your body. Focus on the exercises’ flow while feeling the earth’s pull. Finish your practice with the corpse pose and listen to the sounds around you. While simultaneously breathing through your nose and taking in the scents of nature and life.

Crystals for grounding

Specific crystals are excellent for grounding because they hold protective qualities. Using these crystals can bring you a sense of calm and tranquillity. Red jasper, amethyst, bloodstone, and citrine are all good spiritual grounding stones. Try taking one in your hand and feeling the texture of the stone while concentrating on relaxing.

Add crystals to your bath water and feel their energies mixing with your own. At the same time, let their grounding properties wash over you. (Ensure the crystals you want to bathe in are not water-soluble).

Smoke Cleansing

When you smoke cleanse yourself, it has the same clearing properties as smoke cleansing your space. First, you will need a smoke cleansing stick or an ethically sourced palo santo stick. Start by lighting your smoke cleansing stick or palo santo stick. Allow the flame to take hold before blowing it out, producing a smouldering smoke and a beautiful aroma.

Next, move the stick around your body. Beginning at the ankles and working upwards. Ensure this magical smoke has touched all of you, ending at the top of your head.

As we said earlier, spiritual grounding is a personal experience. Therefore, not every technique works as well for each person. Above are our favourite ways to feel grounded.
