"Grounding" is a term you hear often and although people have a good idea of what it means, there's still a lot of confusion on what it is, how to do it, and why we should even do it in the first place.
Grounding (or earthing) is a practice in which you connect to the earth, to allow all parts of yourself integrate together as they connect to the universal energies of the earth. We are made up of our emotional body, our mental body, our Soul body, and our Physical body.
Those who are air dominate in their charts will be stuck in the mental body, using their intellectual minds to navigate through life. Those with water dominate elements in their chart will be mainly operating from their emotional and intuitive selves. Those with lots of fire in their charts take action and need to be on the move with all of their energy and drive, and those dominate in earth will be slow and steady, focused on their earthly tasks and chores.
Our soul body is our energetic make up of how all of the other bodies interact with one another. The completeness and integration of all parts of yourself equal your spirit, the energy that drives you through this earthly realm.
Grounding is important because it anchors each part of self to one another as you connect to the earth. It integrates your mental state with your emotional state, with your energy, passion and drive, and then harness that power within your physical body allowing you to operate from a balanced place of power.
Although there are more ways to ground then to connect with the earth, sticking your bare feet in grass, dirt, or sand is the quickest, cheapest and most efficient way to connect to source.
Depending on your elemental make up, there could be one form of grounding that works better for you over the other. Air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) need wind, electricity, and mind exercises. Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) needs water, salt, and emotional calming. Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) need exercise, focus, and water. Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) need the dirt, the earth, nature.
One thing all the signs need is to ground.
When The Energy Boutique's SHOP opens its virtual doors on the 21st, I will be offering Grounding Mats. It is a mat that is filled with positive and negatived charged ions that, when you allow contact with your body, your energy will be anchored and integrated together.
This mat is a great tool to have at work to have under your desk, helping you to calm your stresses and make you more clear headed when interacting with your co-workers. This is also great for people who live in apartment buildings who don't have access to a green space. This is amazing to lay on during your yoga practice, sleep on, or sit on any time you are feeling over active in you mind, your heart, or are feeling overwhelmed with all of your access energy.
A Grounding Mat is a great tool to have access too, to provide the grounding effects at any time, in any situation. I can't wait for you to try it for yourself!
