Find a quiet place, sit in a chair with your feet flat on the ground, your legs uncrossed and your arms unfolded. Close your eyes. Be aware of your body and what it feels like. Bring your attention to the center of your head, climb on in there as a place to experience your body from. From there, notice the base of your torso. Notice where the center of the earth is, straight down below you.
Now imagine a tree trunk or some other long, inanimate object connecting that base of your torso to the center of the earth. See it in your mind’s eye. Notice how it makes you feel. Take a minute to enjoy it. Then allow the stress and worries that you’re ready to let go of to release down this grounding cord.
When you’re done, imagine a big golden ball of your own energy above your head. Bring it down into and around your body to fill in all the spaces from which you released energy. Take a deep breath, stretch and open your eyes. Congratulations! You’ve done your first grounding exercise.
