Grounding, Basics

When I first started my metaphysical journey no one really emphasized grounding. The higher chakras were the rock stars that received a lot of attention as everyone was looking to receive more higher guidence from the divine. I found that my life had shifted a lot, and prefering stability, I looked for an answer. The other common side effect of lack of grounding is a lack of mental clarity, where it is hard to concentrate and focus as you used to (light headedness). I was in finance so this was inconvenient. Here are some common symptoms:

-Loss of focus

-Feeling less intelligent

-Swift changing moods

-Hunger that can’t be satisfied

-Feeling more drained or fatigued than you’ve ever felt

-Anxieties that are not explainable

-Feeling everything and everyone around you

I talk a lot about grounding, and I’ve included additional methods and modes in the past, but I haven’t done a basic grounding blog as I figured it has been covered quite a bit on the internet. However, it has come up multiple times this past week so I decided to get it done. There are many YouTube meditations on this as well.

Do this when you get up in the morning and whenever you feel you are getting less grounded again. Grounding does not negatively affect your metaphysical abilities, think of it as you are washing them off in a waterfall, washing away the psychic “dirt” and when you come up again you can see clearer. Hopefully that helps some of you with your fears of grounding. If you have other fears of grounding, ask your archangels to heal them on all levels before you go to bed for the next 7 nights.

Method:

Close your eyes and visualize black cords from your feet extend down until they meet the core of the earth, with mother earth grabbing them and securing them into the core.  I usually ask for this connection to core for 24 hours.  Visualize the rest of your body turn into the branches and the leaves, extending into your energy field and your energy field turning a dark green as well as the rest of your body.  Visualize air blowing away any energetic debris, then a waterfall wash over you to toss energies to the ground where they become soaked into the earth.  Lastly visualize green fire surrounding you and your energy field, dissolving any negative energy or energies that no longer serve you.  Using this process you will have used all 4 elements.  Sometimes I’ll take an actual shower, light candles asking for grounding, open windows for air to blow in and put black stones in my pockets for additional intention.  You should feel your feet become heavier, like putting on heavier boots and they should stay that way for the length of the time you ask.

There are other guided meditations for grounding online but they do take rather a long period of time. In the morning I usually like to get going, so you can do this in the shower or in bed.  Also, if you are clairsentient, check out my blog on how to maintain your energies so you can clear more of what no longer serves you.

Elementals and Nature Spirits Series III: Earth Elementals, Trees, Gnomes and Elves

In the morning I was visited by a gnome who very pleasantly led me outside the door on my way to errand running. He wanted to make himself known, I think he was hinting at what was to come. I knew gnomes were associated with the ground and earth but did not often see them so clearly before this. In the evening I was visited by a being that looked like a combination of red and charred black lava. In a very pleasant voice he said that he was of Earth. I asked him what does he do and he said that he makes homes for little people. I said is that like caves for physical people, and then I remembered he said “little” people, so I asked him if it was for elementals instead, and he confirmed it was. He showed me an image of soil as if you cut the Earth in half, like seeing an ant farm in a glass case, and I saw little beings in soil. I think this was representative of what this Earth Elemental helps do, which was help out other elementals and nature spirits with where they reside. I asked him how he did this and he said he “shifts”. Then I saw lightning which is usually representative of energy, sometimes associated with the fire elementals. I asked him if he did anything else and I received no. I found that interesting. He seemed to have a very specific, focused responsibility. I suspect there’s probably other Earth elementals and nature spirits who do clean up the energy in the soil, who will make themselves known to me down the line.

When talking to Jesus and my archangels later on I asked specifically if I understood what this Earth Elemental was telling me about making places for Elementals to live in. Jesus showed me a bubble around a spirit and then I saw energy in which for them to live. I asked if there’s a difference between the elemental I spoke to and the ones that actually clean up the energy in the soil and I received a yes. I also received that elementals and other natural spirits help with maintaining the energy in the rocks and the crystals that are used for meditation. Earlier when I was doing a blog on fire elementals I did note that they were responsible for transferring energy. I asked if fire elementals help with the energies in crystals and stones as well. The answer was yes.

Gnomes and Elves for grounding

Five months later, I was having trouble grounding, the reason being I was around a lot of stressed people and electronics. When you are really grounded your legs and feet should feel heavy, particularly your feet, and your head should feel more clear. I tried to imagine the different elemental/nature spirits that I knew of to see which was more helpful in this endeavor. In my experience, the two that consistantly help me ground are gnomes and elves. I picture them around my feet working away. An elf was one of the first natural spirits to make themselves known to me when I started my energy healing courses. If you ever have fear when thinking about elementals or nature spirits think of them as cute best you can (I often visualize them as smurfs). That will help you feel more affection and kindness towards them.

Trees

Trees are quiet, but powerful beings.  When I was feeling particularly grateful to trees one week I decided to send a blessing to the trees within San Diego.  It was in thanks for making the energy in San Diego so positive and inviting.  Unexpected, and not asked for, I received something back.  It rained for a good two weeks, after a long drought.  The amount of rain was unprecedented and much needed for the county.  Shortly thereafter, within a week, I also was introduced to a new love opportunity, someone that was employed as an arborist.

The lesson here is if you want something in your life, sometimes it helps to give out blessings to others ( I ask God to send out the blessing in a way that doesn’t harm others best as possible rather than I sending my energy).  You can send out blessings with what I want in return in mind (give to someone else what you want such as a money blessing, or good health) or sometimes because you appreciate what they have done for you.  Often times I am visited afterwards by a spiritual being thanking me, without asking for it.  Trees are good for grounding; I have been shown a vision of downward pointing green arrows while at the zoo to use as a visualization when you want to be more grounded.  You can touch a tree and ask it out loud to help you ground, releasing the energy that is not yours and no longer serving you.  Different species of trees (Pine vs Eucalyptus) are good at different tasks as well, which is a blog unto itself.  I have often received images of trees carrying messages over distances between themselves, so they have a method of communicating with each other.

Saying Thanks

Want to give something back? You can say out loud that you appreciate them and all they do. You can do a candle ritual with an offering such as organic berries, nuts, chocolate and crystals. If you do leave an offering, clean it up the next morning. I was told they get offended if you leave it there to rot or collect dust.  Lastly you can imagine God blessing the earth with blue, green, and pink energy, then visualize God cleaning up the pollution in the sky, water, and earth.

Earth can help with:* 

  1. Grounding – my article on grounding specifically can be found here
  2. Mental Clarity – Think of clearing any unnecessary energy in your legs, feet and pelvis, imagine those areas a nice clean red color.  If you want to concentrate on your mind or head for mental clarity think of the element of air or indigo/purple, only after you’ve cleared your bottom chakras for free flowing energy.  Helps to include air with mental clarity rituals.
  3. Binding or protection from negative energy
  4. Cleansing of energies – crystals or people
  5. Abundance and Money – feng shui says to put a plant in your south east corner as “wood” and crystals such as quartz help with financial abundance.
  6. Getting over addictions – this makes sense as it grounds you and cleans energies, grounding helps one to be less anxious and less afraid

Elementals Series I: The Fire King

I was visited by an elemental king of fire the other day. He’s been making himself known pretty prominently for the past couple days. So during my next reading I asked what he is responsible for or what he helps out with. I felt a warm sensation on my face and on my arms so through a series of questions I found out that they can warm an area or body part such as when we get upset, embarrassed or angry we’ll feel our face get warm or prickly (fire elementals specifically). I also asked if they’re responsible for creating many of the sensations throughout my body I’ve been experiencing since I took Reiki and I saw clairvoyantly that all the Elementals have something to do with the sensations we feel. When I asked to be cooler during a hot part of the day I first asked for water and that didn’t quite do it. Then I saw the word “air”, so I asked for air and then I cooled down. As the years have gone by I have clairvoyantly seen as well as intuitively received that some of these feelings are controlled by elementals and nature spirits. Over the years I would ask about different sensations and the answers were consistently elementals or nature spirits rather than my angels. For a week or two after this meeting I wanted to know more about what Elementals do to help us out. After looking through some sources of information seems like they clean up a lot of negative energy in different areas on Earth. In a reading I asked why are they creating some of these unusual sensations such as prickling, warming, heaviness and I received that they wish to help out. One way they can help out is by allowing us to feel the blocks and imbalances that need to be healed by creating some of these sensations in our body and around us. Affirmations, meditation and energy healing such as theta, crystals and Reiki can remove those blocks and imbalances. Energetic blocks can be indicators of what beliefs you have about yourself and the world around you as well as the chakras/meridians/energy fields that need to be cleansed or healed. Know that this is only part of what they do to help us raise our vibration. Use it as an indication that something is out of balance and get your metaphysical tool belt out to clear some stuff out. As we heal, we raise our vibration.

Common issues:

Fatigue – Wow, this can be multiple things. The simplest answer I can give you is clear the root chakra, or carry a red stone in your pocket. The root chakra seems to be one of the major energy boosting centers. Also imagine red energy in your legs down to your feet while exercising, I’ve noticed this gives me an energy boost. Fatigue could also be someone else’s energies stuck in your energy field. In this case say mentally this is not me and the energy will go away. If it is a block, do a clairsentient body scan and see where the energy is concentrated, then clear chakras and meridians on the spot as well as above and below. The other common reason is lack of enthusiasm, use affirmations for this (“I am enthusiastic about life”, “Love and Joy runs through my arteries and veins”) because sometimes we have to do things we aren’t always thrilled with.

Mental slowness, lack of mental clarity – First check both sides of your throat including the area where the spinal cord meets the skull. Also check chakras in the middle of your head, behind the nose and in the back of your mouth. Second, Ground! Do a great grounding including grounding the back chakras, each of your joints in arms, shoulders and legs. Grounding helps with mental clarity and focus when out of a reading.

Here is a summary of solutions to clear some of the discomfort, fatigue or blocks:

1. Apprecition – say out loud what you appreciate, even if it is materialistic, like “I appreciate my bed, I appreciate my TV, I appreciate the beach…”

2. Mediation with crystals – I highly recommend full chakra sets with grounding stones for your legs. I practice what I preach and sell full sets which include stones for your legs and feet (go here: www.ebay.com/usr/all1059). The additional leg stones can help with anxieties, stress and help you have a more clear flow of energy. I have seen no one else provide a full chakra set which includes feet and knee chakra stones. They really make a difference.

3. Affirmations – Louise Hay has a book, “How to heal your life” that gives you affirmations for the areas where you feel discomfort. Also there are many affirmations on the internet if you google “knee pain affirmation”.

4. Energy healing – Crystals, theta or Reiki as well as many other modalities can help you restore balance and peace.

I saw in my reading that elementals and nature spirits would like to be known for what they do to help. They help us throughout the day, either by being our guides through feelings as well as cleaning up the energy around us. An excellent way to feel better is to take a walk outside in nature and you’ll instantly realize how much better the energy is. The other thing I saw clairvoyantly in my reading clearly when I was asking about fire Elementals was lightning. After perusing some of the sources about Elementals I saw them mention lightning as well. I read that fire Elementals might be responsible for much of the energy around us including lightning. One particular source said that they may be responsible for the energy even within our atoms. They also may help with energizing your crystals and stones.

If you have fears concerning elementals and nature spirits due to fairy tales or movies as a child (many of us do), I recommend affirming to yourself that they are kind and always visualize them as such. If something feels wrong assume it is not them, ask and visualize your archangels removing the offending party or energy. If you need more proof that they are here to help go outside on a nice day and see how much better you feel being in nature.
