Grounding: the gift of being in your body

With the onset of the Corona-Virus, our emotional and physical horizon, has changed. These are challenging days; where most of us do not know how to deal with the legitimate emotional distress, the worries and the fears.

There a lot of things that we can do: eat better, improve our immune system, try to be in charge of our emotions, be less vulnerable. There are, of course, a thousand different ways to reach these results. Based on my personal clinical experience as a healer, what I have learnt that sometimes the best way to resolve significant issues is to go back to the basic. I noticed that generally one of the first action necessary for our wellbeing is the simple grounding.

Grounding means to bring your focus to what is happening in the here and now. It is the capacity to be present physically, either in your body or in your surroundings, instead of being trapped by the thoughts in your mind. On a spiritual level, grounding can be defined as the capacity to be connected energetically to the earthโ€™s core. It helps you to remain or recreate the connection with your physical dimension.

Let’s talk about why grounding works and the science behind it. When we start to think about something stressful and fearful, our amygdala, an almond-shape set of neurons located deep in the brain’s medial temporal lobe goes into action. The typical process sees the negative thought alarm the amygdala that react to increasing muscle tension, fastening the heartbeat and the breathing. The amygdala that is part of the limbic system helps with emotions, memory and your instinctual survival reactions. When the feeling is getting stronger this part of the brain interprets these body changes as further evidence that something is wrong increasing exponentially the reactions, creating a vicious cycle where you become more and more anxious and physically and emotionally overwhelmed. Thankfully, by re-focusing on your body and what you’re physically feeling, you get out of your head and divert your mind away from anxious or stressful thoughts breaking this vicious circle.

Slowly inhale, then exhale. If it helps, you can say or think โ€œinโ€ and โ€œoutโ€ with each breath or count 1 to 5 to keep the concentration. Let your body lead, and your mind will follow. Time: 1 minute to 10 minutes.

You can do this sitting or standing. Focus on how your body feels from head to toe, noticing each part. Recall each part of your body and even touch that to bring awareness back to the physical dimension. Do a few exercises or stretches. You could try jumping up and down, jogging in place, stretching different muscle groups one by one or only dancing. Time: 5 to 20 minutes

As a crystal healer, I could not miss this point. If you feel very often ungrounded, you could carry or wear a crystal. There are a lot of different options, but generally: – a smoky quartz, a jasper, a piece of copper or a portion of petrify wood are good choices. – If you are not super sensitive, you can pick something energetically more substantial like a Hematite, a black or green tourmaline, pyrite.

Through sound, we can change the rhythms of our brain waves, our heartbeat and our respiration, affecting our overall health. The most accessible and no-cost way to ground yourself using sound is to immerse yourself in the natural world or its sounds. (water/birds/ wind). Again, every person is different, but I generally suggest to use the C note or the vibration of 64 HZ/ 128 HZ to keep your body grounded.

Besides these methods of grounding that Iโ€™ve described above, you should also remember about several additional things you can do to improve your grounding. Among them you can: Be in Nature, eat healthy food, clap and rub your hands together, take a shower or put your wrists in cold water, have a walk, do a meditation, using Bach flower remedies or some essential oils etc.
