This is a great meditation to do before a long meditation, after a meditation that takes you out of your body, at the start of the day, and anytime you feel ungrounded.
There are also physical things that can be done, such as going for a walk or for a run in Nature, or in a park. T’ai Chi works as do other martial arts. Gardening is great for grounding. Sometimes what is required is a good meal. It can be as simple as that, and simple is good.
Should you feel a meditation is the best way for you, here it is:
In a comfortable place, close your eyes.
Take a few deep and gentle breaths, breathe as deep as you can into the bottom of your lungs.
Make a scan of your body. Notice how your right hand feels, notice how your left hand feels. Check your arms, the right one, and then the left arm. Notice how alive they feel.
Now check your feet, the right foot and then the left foot. Notice how your right leg feels, and then how your right leg feels.
Notice how the lower part of your body feels as you breathe. Now check the upper part of your body, just see how it feels.
Now in more detail, if you can, notice how your lungs feel. Then in turn, check your heart. Check your liver, then notice how your stomach feels.
Notice how your intestines feel, how your kidneys feel, how your pancreas feels. Check any other part of your body you want to.
How does your spine feel?
Notice how your neck feels, and your head, then your face. How do your eyes feel? How about your ears?
Placing your awareness on parts of your body can help to bring you in.
Now we are going to connect you in to the earth with some roots in the same way that trees and plants have roots.
Imagine roots growing out of your feet, and one from the base of your spine, down into the ground. Imagine them growing down as deep as you can. Make them any colour that feels comfortable. A restful, nurturing and healing colour is the colour of black earth, like a rich, fertile soil, that is full of life. Or think of the colour of granite, which has a powerful, Devic energy.
The earth has already moved on energetically, and is able to provide you with enriching and nurturing, slow frequency energy that holds enough ordered energy, that is a rich, smooth black energy, full of Devic vitality.
This energy flows from the earth, up your roots, and into your body. This rich black energy flows up your lower legs, through your knees, and up your thighs to your hips. The Devic black light flows up into the lower part of your body. It flows into your intestines, kidneys, lower spine, and all other parts of your lower body. As the black, nurturing slow frequency energy flows in, the parts of your body relax, open up, and let go. They receive a gentle healing.
The black Devic light flows into the upper part of your body, into your chest and shoulders. Into your lungs, liver, stomach, heart, glands, muscles, blood, nervous system, and upper spine. The nurturing, smooth black light flows into your neck and head. It flows into your face, ears, eyes, nose, glands and into both hemispheres of your brain.
All your organs, glands, muscles and bones send down roots into the ground, into the earth, so you become much more connected to the earth. Anything that is not needed, such as tension, or chaotic and negative slow frequency energy, can be let go of by the different parts of your body. This negative energy is a black colour as well, but will feel different to the nurturing black Devic light.
The roots pull you in towards the earth. Your roots you have sent down travel down further and further into the earth. The energy of the earth that is inside you is soothing and alive. Notice how your body feels now.
Feeling through your roots, you might notice how the earth is. You might notice how your roots feel.
With the earth energy, your body becomes an attractive place for your astral body, which comes in more into your physical body. Your astral body nestles into your physical body, and becomes more aligned. Astral roots flows down from your body into the earth.
Notice a two way flow of energy. Some energy flows from you into the earth, and the nurturing, black energy from the earth flows into you.
For extra grounding, if you need it, allow the earth’s energy to flow up your roots, and up through your body and head. The black earth energy then flows out of the top of your head, to form a heavy, thick cloak of black light, to soothe and calm you, and help you stay in your body.
Now let yourself become aware of your body. Notice your breathing for a few breaths. Notice how your body feels, and how your arms and hands feel. Notice how your legs and feet feel.
When you are ready, open your eyes.
This grounding meditation can be done once or more times a day. It is good to do before some powerful meditations as they can take you out of your body. If need be, it can be done after meditating as well if you feel spacey.
I like to put my roots down before travelling. I aim to put them down at least a thousand miles or so. Better still, I aim for the centre of the earth. This is great before flying. It feels strange having stretchy roots travelling through the air, but overall, it has a grounding effect while being in an aeroplane.
