Are your days full of stress? Do you feel like you’re constantly working, yet getting nowhere? Are your thoughts going a mile a minute? Do you feel like you can never relax?
If you can relate to even one of these questions, then I recommend taking these steps to ground yourself. I cannot stress how important it is to take two minutes to sit down, breathe, and connect to the Universe.
Work up to grounding yourself in the morning, afternoon, and evening, but start with the times you need it most. This may be shortly after your alarm goes off, before an important event (exam, business meeting, presentation), before walking into a crowded room, or whatever time during the day you feel most overwhelmed.
Set a goal to ground yourself every day for a week, then two weeks, then a month, until it becomes a daily habit. You will feel more calm, less stressed, and overall happier.
My Favourite Technique
Sit somewhere comfortable with your back straight and your arms and legs uncrossed. This is important so the energy can flow through you properly. Your feet should be planted on the floor.
Close your eyes and take 3-5 deep breaths, until you feel yourself starting to relax. Next, imagine roots (like the roots of a tree) flowing from your root chakra (near your tailbone) down each of your legs, through your feet, and into the ground.
Those roots are going to keep travelling through the grass, the dirt, the rocks, the sand, the clay, all the way down to the center of the Earth.
Here you will imagine a large rose quartz, which you will wrap your roots around 2-3 times (whichever feels right for you) and tie them. Give them a little tug to make sure they are secure.
Now take deep breaths, inhaling Mother Earth’s energy, imagining a beautiful green flowing up through the Earth’s layers and into your body. This healing energy is going to flow through your feet, up your legs, your pelvis, your core, all the way into your head and through your arms.
Feel a sense of relaxation and calmness as you continue taking these deep breaths. Ask Mother Nature to fill you with her healing energy, and ask your Guardian Angels to protect your energy as the day progresses.
Imagine yourself being surrounded by a baby pink light which represents unconditional love and protection.
When you are ready, open your eyes and feel free to go about your day. You are now grounded.
Keep practicing; you will feel a deeper connection the more you use this technique. It is very important to remember it may feel slightly different each time. Sometimes you may not be able to visualize as well as others, sometimes you may forget a step. It is the INTENTION that matters. As long as you set the intention of grounding yourself, it will work.

For this method you will do everything the same, although instead of roots you will envision pink cement rooting into the Earth from your root chakra. This pink cement will travel down through your feet and reach 20 feet into the ground. Then you will visualize a beautiful green, healing energy coming back up from Mother Earth and through your body. This energy brings strength, security, and health into your life. Again, protect yourself with the baby pink light surrounding you.
Remember to breathe throughout the day and keep sending yourself unconditional love; you deserve it.
