Here are 9 EASY GROUNDING TECHNIQUES, that might help!
Are you feeling any extra stress by chance from the holidays? Feeling unmotivated, grumpy, irritated, overwhelmed, anxious? Well, you just might need to "ground" yourself. No, not for being bad. Although a time out might do you some good. But, I mean, you might need to use some of these techniques in this article to bring you back down to earth, to help you be more focused and make more clear decisions and.... to relax you!
Here is some information on what this is all about.
What is grounding?
It’s the process by which we maintain an appropriate energy charge by releasing any energy which would constitute an excessive charge within the systems of the body, emotions, mind, etc. (Our home's electrical circuits are grounded to dismiss the extra electricity.) Grounding is a necessary outflow, in contrast to the many inflows of energy into our systems -- from other people, from our digestion of food, from our breathing of fresh air, from sunlight, from the impact of spirit upon our material substance, etc.
What are the benefits of grounding?
We are relaxed, mentally and emotionally.
What Are Some Easy Techniques for Grounding?
Grounding is a natural part of life; it occurs in the give-and-take of our daily activities. But we might need to use specific techniques to ground ourselves if we have become over-charged with the energy of intense emotions, or a stressful degree of inactivity (which does not provide opportunities for the discharge of energy), or religious practices (including some meditation methods). The grounding techniques are meant to be remedies for a temporary condition of imbalance; if we need them to use them regularly, we might want to examine (and change) the lifestyle which repeatedly causes us to become over-charged.
1. Rub a stainless steel spoon over the bottom of your feet. The metal draws excess energies down and off the feet. This has a subtle centering effect on your nervous system, and is very grounding.
9. We can serve.
1. We can "give." Our over-charge of energy might have occurred because our inflow was excessive, or because our outflow was insufficient; i.e., we did not "give" enough energy in our daily life. To discharge that energy, we can give via volunteer work, or donations of money and goods to charity. However, the giving must be done with warmth, because it is the warmth which carries the energy from us to other people.
