Thanks muchly in advance!

Hi @kasie, great question!

Centering and grounding are the foundation of Energy work. :raised_hands: Let’s begin with the basics:

  • Centering: Collecting all of your scattered energies and bringing them back to the calm place within you. It’s like taking account of all the energy in your body.

  • Grounding: Eliminating excess energy that you may have stored up during a ritual, working, or any charged situation.

The easiest way to get centered is to do a Body Scan, this involves paying attention to parts of the body and bodily sensations in a gradual sequence from feet to head. Click here for a Guided Centering Meditation :headphones:.

For grounding, you can simply meditate while lying face up on the ground. Close your eyes, feel the energy of the earth being drawn up into you. You can also lean back against wood, or a tree and let it absorb the energy from you (it can go both ways). Here’s a Guided Grounding Meditation :headphones:.

Any meditation or practice where you focus on the here and now can be considered “grounding”, this includes painting, knitting, washing dishes, crocheting, etc.

If you need more easy beginner exercises, I recommend you read this post I wrote on Energy work:

Blessed Be! :pray:

Grounding, centering, and many kinds of meditation are great for not only your practice, but also have the benefit of increasing your mental, physical, and emotional well-being! :heart:

I often mind my mind wandering when I try to meditate- I found concentrating on certain sounds helps me to rein in my focus and be less distracted. I recommend listening to the soothing sounds of Tibetan Singing Bowls while you concentrate.

@SilverBear shared a beautiful (and very beginner-friendly!) Earth Grounding Chant the other day. You may want to take a look, if you haven’t already!

Best wishes as you practice grounding and centering, @kasie!

Blessed Be :heart:

Thank you so much for the links. I’ve been hitting a wall on grounding and centering for a while. I think the fact that I have diabetic nerve problems is making it difficult for me, my feet tingle but are numb all at once. Either that or my center is in my feet. LOL. I’ll try these posts this weekend. Thank you again!

Thank you so much for your kind words. I try using that music that is set to a certain frequency to clear negativity when I meditate but maybe the singing bowls will help. I’ll try anything once. And thank you for the link to the Earth Grounding Chant. I’ll give it a go.

Thanks again for the help!
