It's day two of Plentiful Earth’s #30DaysMagicalRoots challenge! The topic for the day is grounding, and I thought I'd share a bit about grounding. I talked about dirt time in a previous post, and I think it's still the best way. But sometimes, I'm just too busy to go out and sit on the ground for the time I need.
When that happens, I try to carry with me a good grounding stone. My favorite is obsidian. It has a sharp but still energy to it. It feels alert, connected, but not sleepy. I have several pieces that I adore...silver sheen, rainbow, golden sheen. But the most special ones are the ones I find outside myself.
I carry a piece with me in my pocket when I feel disconnected. I also picked up an obsidian bead bracelet, which also works for me. You can also slip a piece underneath a pillow or drop one in your bathtub while bathing.
What's your favorite technique for grounding?
I remember learning in belly dance how to un-dizzy yourself after spinning too much. You would stand on your toes and sorta slam your heels down a few times. The jarring motion seemed to re-calibrate your sense of balance.ReplyDelete
I find myself doing this once in a while when I'm just too head-fogged or distracted or off in the clouds upset about something. It jogs me back into focus.
I like this! I'm definitely gonna give that a try - my dance teacher didn't tell us this secret!Delete
