Hopefully you’ve already discovered the Ultimate grounding guide, over here.
This blog post is dedicated to teaching a sitting grounding practice.
TO GROUND IN A SITTING POSITION, SIMPLY:
Settle into a comfortable sitting position
Cross-legged or otherwise works
Ideally outside with direct contact with the Earth but its not required
Pay special attention to the alignment of your spine
Close your eyes and take several deep, centering breaths— really sensing the miracle of your body and the movement of your lungs, in and out
Then with focused attention, move your awareness to locate the bottom of your bum, making contact with the ground beneath you
Imagine the base of your spine opening at the same time that the Earth begins to send up a vibrant source of energy from her core
Notice how effortlessly your body accepts this gift from the Earth
Visualize the energy flow through your legs, up to your hips, filling your core
Make sure that your arms, neck, and head receive this sweeping current of healing energy
Now send the Earth’s vibrant energy shooting out of the top of your head, creating a 3D shower around your entire body
Let this energy “rain” over your entire body and be recycled back into the Earth, creating a flow, as pictured here
Once you feel confident that you have a rejuvenating flow of energy, super-charge your energy practice with heart-centered breathing.
Place your hands on your heart
Direct your attention and awareness to the swelling and collapse of your lungs with each deep, centering breath
Inhale for 3-5 seconds
Exhale for twice the length of your inhale (6-10 seconds)
Repeat until you can strongly sense your heart space
Use your imagination to expand the energy field of your heart
Program your heart to create a field of purity and neutrality
Continue taking deep, centering breaths until you feel complete with the exercise
You know you’ve successfully grounded once you feel noticeably calmer and present.
