So far in this series we have been looking at grounding; what it is, what happens without it and how to do it. So the logical question to follow on from this is 'what do we get for our efforts?' No one really wants to engage into a practice that they see no benefit in. Its all well and good for me to point out what you might be experiencing if you are ungrounded, but what else do we get if we correct that imbalance?
Its all very well and good to talk about the need for grounding and the importance of grounding and the consequences of not grounding, but how do we actually do it. In this post we will be expanding the boundary of what we can do to ground and how we can use the environment around us to help in anchoring our energy and giving us greater stability.
In this second installment in the Grounding series we will take a look at what happens if you are not grounded. If you missed the first part you can catch up here.
Grounding is vitally important in our health and well-being for helping to provide us with stability that can be meausred on physical, emotional/mental and spiritual levels. It helps to keep our minds from getting carried away by the disturbances or challenges around us and helps to give us a greater degree of inner clam and ability to cope. But what happens to us if we don't have this vital quality?
One of the most fundamental aspects of grounding for me has been standing still.
Our lives can be so hectic and so often revolving around motion, around doing things, that we very often don't feel like we have a moment to stop. If we do, that moment usually comes at the end of the day when we flop on the sofa and soak up a distorted world though the media. We literally don't stand still and allow our minds any peace for a moment until we are too tired to do anything but numbly continue with our doing through the watching of the nightly programmes or surfing the internet.
