‘Grounding’ is a well-used new age buzz word: “Grounding is really important!” “You need to work on your grounding!” “Make sure to center and ground…” etc.
But there’s usually little follow up to that.
If you press someone on what they mean by ‘grounding’, they’ll probably say something like this: “Imagine tree roots growing out from your feet into the earth”. If you’re lucky, you’ll get a little more detail: “Do some yoga, do some tai chi; spend some time bare-foot in nature; eat some root vegetables”. You may even get told to nibble on some chocolate.
This is, of course, good advice in it’s own way, but doesn’t go to the root (excuse the pun) of ungroundedness.
On this website I share with my tribes-folk my thoughts about grounding: what it is, why it’s important, and how we can do it (hint: it’s a journey of inner healing, mostly).
