No matter why clients come to me for energy healing, the biggest problem I usually see is that they are not well grounded. I often spend a good part of a session just getting their energy grounded, because this is the one thing that will aid their healing the most.
If someone is not grounded, they are not fully in their body. They are also not in present time. No one can function well and be healthy and happy without being present. Our optimal state is to be in our bodies, so what throws people out? It is traumatic events, either emotional or physical, that cause this. Who wants to be in pain? It is human nature to move away from it. So when there is pain and trauma, we pop out of the body with a big chunk of our consciousness, and then sometimes never get back in fully. This can be caused by accidents, losses, emotional or physical abuse, shocking news, or serious illnesses.
Some people are thrown out at a young age and live that way the rest of their lives. By the time they come to me, this has become their normal way of being, and they wonder why they are stressed and not coping well with day-to-day challenges.
Another harmful result of not being fully present is that there is room for other beings to take residence in or around your body. These opportunistic entities will only make things worse. They magnify negative thoughts and harmful emotions, creating more problems in your life. Coming back into possession of your body and claiming your energy will give them the eviction notice and is the ticket back to health and wholeness.
Many people can reach high states of consciousness in meditation, but because they are not grounded, this activity does not progress their spiritual evolution. Those high frequency energies need to be brought into the physical world and into all areas of our lives to be integrated and help us evolve. We are bridges between spirit and matter! Our job as human beings is to bring spiritual energies into the physical world, and that means into our bodies, and all areas of our lives.
The way to start is with the grounding cord. This is seen psychically as a cord of energy that is attached to the body right where we sit, and it ideally extends downward into the Earth. It is common for it to be non-existent, shallow, disconnected, or even straying off to the side. When I correct this energetically, I put it all the way down into the middle of the Earth, anchoring it well.
You can ground yourself with intent without being able to see the cord. Just intend that the cord is well attached at the top and push it down as deep as you can imagine. If you haven’t been grounded for a long time, you may need to visualize or intend this several times a day at first. But if you do just that, after a while it will stay for longer and longer.
This is our lifeline. This connection gives us stability, nourishment, and security. Everyone needs this!
Once you have your Earth connection working, allow the energy from deep in the core to come up into your system. Let it bathe and heal resistance or pain you have stored from your past as it slowly flows upward through your body, until it goes out the top of your head. If you are familiar with chakras, pause the energy at each one, seeing each chakra grow brighter and more beautiful. Pay special attention to the root chakra, at the base of the spine, where the energy first comes in.
Once your cord is healed, and more energy can flow upward, the body looks more inviting to the soul. You will have more of your essence in the here and now.
Our beautiful Earth has energy that is perfect for human beings in all ways, from the body to the soul. And it is given freely, so take advantage of it!
