Yesterday we were playing with how it feels to be centered. Today we will play with feeling our energy cord extending from our root chakra. This grounding tool is derived from a presentation given by Gini Grey during “Empaths Shifting into 2012: A Telesummit to Help Energy-Sensitive People Understand Their Spiritual Role on Earth” on September 6, 2011.

We unknowingly ground our electrical energy with our feet as we walk about the earth. That’s why it feels so good to be in nature, especially when barefoot. There is also a current of electrical energy emanating from the first or root chakra at the base of the spine.
It’s important to be consciously grounding right now because we’re shifting so fast, and we’re releasing stuff so quickly that if we’re not grounded, we will hold onto emotions and problems, and may have too much or too little energy. But when we have our grounding cord flowing, we release our strong emotions or problems, and if anybody else’s stuff comes into your space you can easily release it too.
Let’s begin by focusing on the energy cord that flows from the base of your spine. Envision it flowing all the way down into the center of the earth. Let the cord be wide– sometimes you might need it as wide as your hips. Whatever feels appropriate to you and will allow enough energy to flow and release.
You may need to give yourself a present-time grounding regularly. I’m updating my grounding cord whenever I think about it during the day, or if I’m feeling a little ungrounded. I just get rid of the old one and create a brand new one, and that way I’m staying in the present moment with what’s going on within me. Even though this is a very simple and basic technique, it is really helpful.
Feel free to comment about what you experience when you try this exercise. We love to hear from our readers!
