How To Be Grounded
To be grounded means to be in alignment with your mind, body and soul. You need to develop an ability to listen to your body and honor its wisdom.
On the physical level, being grounded allows you to steadily and deliberately design your life the way you would love it to be. You become clear and take conscious steps towards your goals. Even if you are challenged, your belief and confidence is so strong that you keep moving forward fearlessly.
As you are creating consciously, you do not force or push for things to happen. You listen to your internal wisdom, but also to the intelligence of the universe and allow things to happen in the perfect way, at the right time.
The more connected you are to your body, the more you can listen to your own wisdom and guidance. Your internal navigation system, when awakened, can move you away from working hard towards working smart by assisting you to know where to put your energy and attention, for the best possible results.
When people are grounded, they have an increased connection to the earth, its environment and all living things. This means that they can intuitively feel the changes in their environment and have the flexibility to react appropriately to those changes in a timely manner.
For instance, if they have a business, they will know when to make changes to the business, take it to the next level or sell it. In relationships they can sense when it’s time to let go of a relationship or a partnership, which has run its course and when it’s time to allow someone new into their lives. They also sense how to communicate with different people in order to gain support and assistance.
Someone who is grounded will have less health issues as they would know their body well, feel any disturbances as soon as they arise, and promptly deal with the challenge before it escalates.
Being grounded and in tune with yourself considerably diminishes your stress levels and allows you to live in accordance with your positive beliefs. As your state becomes more joyous and vibrant you attract more success and happiness into your life. You also honor your body and create a more balanced approach to life, by eating healthily, resting when you are tired, exercising, working and having fun.
When people don’t feel grounded and connected to themselves they allow other people to influence their decisions and their lives. This often leads to disappointment, frustration, procrastination in making decisions and lack of trust.
Lack of clarity and self-confidence can cause people to seek acknowledgment and approval from others. Often there is an internal battle of not feeling good enough, while desperately wanting to appear otherwise.
Lack of confidence and lack of self-knowledge can create an internal avoidance to commitment and a fear of failure. Often there is an internal voice which says that if you have not completed something, you have not really failed, thus the cycle of self-sabotage and fleeting from one thing to another can continue.
Fear of Failure
Fear of failure and lack of belief in one’s own creative abilities is one of the largest causes of feeling lost, ungrounded, chaotic and stuck. When an individual is confused their vibration can attract a stream, random, time-consuming problems and challenging events.
The Law of Attraction
The more you recognize your own worth and stand in your own power the faster things become manifest. The more you focus on what you don’t have and all the reasons why you don’t deserve it, or can’t get it, the more you create those experiences.
The Law of Attraction always says ‘yes’ to your requests and makes sure that they are fulfilled. It focuses on your vibration and your deepest beliefs about yourself and what you feel you are capable of contributing and deserve to receive, and then gives it to you. These beliefs are often unconscious.
If you feel like you are in chaos and there is an enormous amount of work to do, then instead of beckoning the law of attraction to create more work, stress and chaos in your life, take a moment to re-equilibrate and re-focus. Give yourself permission to stop, calm down, relax and become aware that things can be done quickly, easily and with little effort. Focus on making yourself feel better, until you feel a sense of relief and re-connection with your own body.
You will find that your breathing will deepen and you will calm down and relaxed. What you were feeling chaotic about just minutes before will become clearer and you will find yourself getting things done with a positive attitude.
If you re-focus your attention on a daily basis towards feeling present, connected with yourself and listening to your own inner guidance system, then you will find that things simply begin to flow into your life with little or no effort. You will begin to have more time for yourself while having the ability to get a lot done with a sense of joy and enthusiasm.
Even when challenges come up, you will find simple ways to resolve them, quickly. The more connected you are to yourself the more comfortable you will feel staying in your body, instead of fantasizing and getting stuck in your mind or in dreams which you don’t believe will come true.
It is easy to get excited about a project or an idea when you first hear about it. What is really important is to be realistic and understand that there are many potential challenges when you undertake a new project. Thus, before excitedly plunging into a new task, you may need to do extensive research and have clarity on all the steps required.
The most important question to ask yourself is if the endeavor that you would like to embark on is in your heart or if it is coming from your mind. Are you doing it because you are passionate about this idea or are you thinking that you can make money out of it?
You are more likely to complete a project that you feel strongly about and that comes from your heart, than you are to continue with something that you think you can make money from but that does not inspire you.
For instance, write down all the possible things that might go wrong with a project, then write down how you would deal with a potential challenge. By writing down what you would find difficult that could make you give up, you can clearly see in what areas you need help. By knowing yourself and taking the time to prepare, you can avoid a lot of potential setbacks and disappointments.
Don’t give up
The last thing you want to do is to start something big and important feeling overexcited and underprepared. Don’t rush into things that you don’t know much about. Take your time, talk to people who have done what you want to do. Learn as much as possible, then move forward with a powerful strategy, knowing that if plan A does not work, you have many other options. Don’t give up, just be creative and try something different. And if everything else fails, ask for Divine Intervention.
I have had the privilege of seeing the law of attraction in action many times. A particularly interesting experienced occurred when my book The Secret Language of Your Body was about to go to print.
I needed to have some pictures of body parts included in the book so that the readers could check the location of a body part when they were doing a healing process on themselves.
I really wanted the pictures to look great and professional; however I was not quite clear on who to ask to get those pictures.
An illustrator was recommended to us and we gave him instructions on what to do. However the illustrator seemed distracted and took a lot longer than expected to give us his drawings.
In fact he waited till the last minute, literally a week before the book had to go to print to send us some proofs. I had began to feel tense about seeing the pictures and having very little time to improve them, I was going away on a holiday.
The day before I had to leave the illustrator promised to send the completed version of the illustrations. I was out with my friends when Paul (my ex-husband) called me and told me I had to come home.
When I arrived and saw the pictures, I began to feel dizzy and upset. They looked completely unprofessional, incomplete and babyish. Even though I was quite mad and it seemed like a hopeless situation, as we were leaving the next day and my publisher needed the pictures immediately, I knew that I could not have those drawings in my book.
I went to my room and realized that I had become quite ungrounded, emotional and discouraged. I decided that I needed to ground myself, rebalance myself and reconnect to my own wisdom. After ten minutes of calming myself and connecting to my body, through breathe and letting go of feelings of chaos I decided that the only way to salvage the situation was to ask for Divine help. So I clearly stated – ‘Divine Healing Intelligence, I need your assistance with finding a solution to this problem. You have five minutes to come up with plan B.’
Meanwhile, I focused on relaxing as much as possible so that I could be in a state of receptivity. Within five minutes I had a feeling to go on the internet. I sat down next to my computer and took some slow deep breaths, open to receive further insights. Then I typed in Medical Artist into Google and pressed search. The word’s medical artist had never entered my head before. Some websites came up and I clicked on the first one. The drawings of the body parts were truly magnificent.
I had realized that the pictures were done by an actual doctor but I had no idea where he lived and if he would be contactable.
When I clicked on contact details I could not believe my eyes. Not only did the medical artist live in Melbourne, but he lived within a five minute drive from where I lived.
I knew that I had found the person I was looking for. It seemed quite miraculous. Within minutes I had contacted him, and I had convinced him to drop by my house so we could discuss the pictures. Even though it was Saturdaynight, he agreed to come. I explained what I wanted and asked him how long he thought it would take to do the pictures. He told me, “It will take a minimum of three weeks.” I explained, “I only had one week.” He told me it was simply impossible, to which I replied, ‘Trust me, everything is possible!’
The pictures were ready on time and I felt great that I had not only the support of doctors but also a doctor who had contributed important artwork to my book. I also felt completely grateful for the invisible Divine intelligence which assisted me to make the book as good as possible.
Ask for help
It is easy to read my story and think that this kind of thing only happens to special people, who are intuitive and have an extra sensory perception. However, I believe that we are all special and we all have support and a connection with Divinity.
It is important is to strengthen this link by asking for help and then being willing to listen, trust and take small action steps.
- Giving yourself permission
- Close your eyes – say to yourself, I give myself permission to feel my body and receive deep and profound messages from it. Take some deep breaths and say, ‘I give myself permission to be fully present in my body. I love my body and am grateful for it giving me a chance to experience life.
- Connect to your Body
- Take a few deep breaths, feel your body. Shake your body, letting go of tension and stuckness which is stored there.
- Take slow deep breaths for about 15- 30 seconds.
- Tighten your body. Relax. Tighten again. Relax, allow it to awaken.
- Focus on your feet. Stamp your feet to feel connected to the earth. Feel your feet. What is it like? How does it feel to connect to the ground? Don’t think too much just breathe in the sensations.
- Say: Divine Healing Intelligence, please assist me to deepen my appreciation and connection with my body. Allow me to receive the wisdom from my mind, body and soul. Assist me to be more grounded and in tune with all of life. Show me how I can easily move out of chaos and into clarity and peace. Give me the perseverance to complete the projects, which will bring me the most joy, abundance and pleasure. Allow me to find alignment with my higher self and be in tune with its guidance. Thank you. Repeat the word ‘Clear’ several times until you feel lighter.
- Ground Yourself
- Visualize the magnetic energy of the earth connecting to your feet. Give your soul permission to stay in your body and experience the moment. Let yourself to be here now.
- Visualize silver light moving from your feet up to your head connecting to your soul and a gold light moving from your head and connecting to your feet. Allow the two colours to intertwine, strengthen and ground you.
