Grounding exercises help tremendously with maintaining a balance of our physical and spiritual bodies. This particular exercise can serve as an excellent tool for identifying physical stresses and upsets.
1. Lay down comfortably on a bed or massage table.
2. Bring your thoughts from its busy mental chatter downward by focusing on your feet.
3. Notice the soles of your feet, your toes, in-between your toes, the top of your feet. Do they feel hot? or cold? Do they hurt? Are they numb? Do you feel your blood circulating through them? Are they feeling tired?
4. Once you have a made a strong connection with your feet, you may then move your focus upwards to your ankles.
5. Notice, but don’t judge how the different parts feel. For example, when you wiggled your toes, how did that feel?
6. Gradually shift your focus now to your lower legs, onto your knee caps, behind your knees, your thighs and upward.
7. Keep reminding yourself not to rush.
8. Allow yourself to breathe throughout the exercise, especially as you come to any areas of discomfort (stressed muscles, soreness, etc.) or at any spot that feels like there may be an energy block.
9. Once you have moved through your torso and up to your neck drop back to your fingertips.
10. Move to the hands, up your arms and shoulders, returning now to your neck.
11. Finish up with your face and scalp.
1. Don’t rush this process. Take your time moving upwards to each part of your body.
2. Do not touch yourself. Just allow your mind to switch focus from wherever it is and mentally consider your body’s sensations.
3. Do this exercise while laying down is recommended, but for anyone who tends to fall asleep quickly upon hitting the pillow sitting upright in a chair may be preferable.
