Four Ways to Energetically Ground Yourself
Grounding is a process of energetically anchoring your body to the earth. Not only does grounding allow you to connect with your spiritual essence, but it also has significant benefits to your physical body and emotional body as well.
The benefits of grounding are numerous. When you do not energetically ground yourself you pick up or absorb the thoughts and feelings of your surroundings that do not belong to you; which can leave you feeling off-balance and anxious. This is a primary concern of empaths, energy healers and workers, and intuitives.
Grounding benefits the physical body as well. Recent breakthroughs in medical science has shown that grounding calms your nervous system, which supports your heart rate, blood pressure, immune system, as well as releasing neurochemicals into the bloodstream such as serotonin, dopamine, and oxytocin. These neurochemicals are often called the happy chemicals; and their function is to support your emotional and mental well-being.
