Strega's Pearls Remedies and Recipes
We all need to feel the bare earth beneath our feet but we are not always able to have that time in nature. We can connect with the earth and her energies anytime from anywhere. It only takes a few minutes to actualize ubiety.
This is my grounding technique:
Take off your shoes feel your feet on the ground if you are not outside it does not matter feel your body from the inside. Wiggle your feet press them into the ground feel your ankles, shins, calves, thighs, put your hands on your lower belly and feel your womb, your creative center. Breathe into your belly button, your chest, shoulder, arms, elbows, hands, neck and head. Now create a root from the base of your spine and send it into the earth. Going down through the floor, the foundation of the house and into the earth. Keep sending it down . You may pass an underground stream, tunnel, or animal. As your root descends the earth around it gets warmer, until it reaches the gold, molten lava center of the earth. Allow your roots to plunge into that molten core, and like straws with every inhale draw up the golden energy until it flows through and fills your whole body. First your feet, then your legs, belly, back, chest, shoulders, arms, hands, neck and head. Feel the warmth of the earth’s heart and as you exhale feel the light and warmth intensify, as though a bellows is blowing upon this golden flame and causing it to burn more brightly. The heat burns away the negativity, anger and desires that encumber your spirit, and you see those emotions being consumed and purified by the golden fire. Now imagine a blue light coming down from the sky connecting with that gold and washing over you. After 10 breaths, allow the visualization to settle, and calm. Feel the stillness, notice the quality of it inside of yourself. Now notice the silence that exists within that stillness. Listen to the silence, feel the stillness. It is the difference between having chocolate and tasting it. Engage in the stillness and the silence, and after 10 breaths of each, experience spaciousness, become sky. Not a sky, with clouds and airplanes and birds, but sky, spacious, never ending, infinite. Rest in the spaciousness of this feeling, taste it, be it. When you are ready, release these energies knowing that you can return when you need and slowly enter into your body, and your day.
This meditation will help with aligning yourself to the rhythms and energies of the earth, grounding yourself here and now, as well as with the universal energies of the sky, receiving them both inside of you to create a healthy balance. This will make it is easier to feel as if we are walking in a good way on this plane, and whenever we forget our spaciousness and stillness in the moment to moment demands of modern life, we can return to this state by just remembering and breathing for a few moments. The more we can balance and align ourselves with our environment the easier it will be to create sacred space for ourselves, giving ourselves what we need to feel good, in a healthy way, and exchanging this same energy with our relations. Seek your strength within and you will find there the earth, the mother of us all, and the ultimate life source, be that Great Spirit, God, or whatever name by which you call that force.
