I don’t know about you but I’ve always had great difficulty in staying earthed. All my childhood memories are of floating above my body looking down. But when I started healing work I quickly learned that I had to ground myself or I’d float right off the planet. And when I began to connect to the expanded consciousness of other dimensions, it was essential to bring that energy back to the earth and share it with the planet. So, while I’m travelling back to the crystal mountain in search of more Celtic Golden Healer Quartz, I thought I’d share a secret with you that will make not only your crystal work much improved but your everyday life as well. Ground yourself!
And just as I typed that, a flock of goldfinches flew past my window to land on the gorgeous apricot St Jude rose flowering beneath it. I love goldfinches. The way they wheel and gleam even on a dull day like today. Little sparkles of sunlight. Like Celtic Golden Healer Quartz taking flight. They brighten up life. I needed it today because, due to a technical failure, I’m going to have to repeat a piece of work I’d put my heart and soul into. If you’ve attended my workshops you’ll know I never quite do the same thing in the same way twice. I like to go with the flow and follow the energy. I’d been reminding myself that there are no failures, only learning opportunities. But it’s felt onerous. Until that goldfinch flypast. My enthusiasm has returned. My head is whirling with how to make the course better than ever.
My favourite symbolism site said:
‘Finches are never satisfied to just go from point A to point B. They seem to boogie from place to place. Bouncing and bobbing through air currents is big fun for these birds. Observing them just gives you a feeling of freedom and happiness… When the finch sings to our awareness it is a beckoning to unleash our own song. If we’ve been concealing our brilliance from the world – the finch is a sign to start making our value more audible and available to others. The finch will sing lightly to your heart, and guide you on a bouncy path of creativity.’ ’ www.whats-your-sign.com/bird-meaning-finch.
I’ve left in the emphasis in as it was so significant to me. It was reiterated by another website:
It’s time to unleash your own song and follow the path of your own creativity. Allow yourself to explore something absolutely new to you today.’
It is a sure sign of exuberance, liveliness and enthusiasm in your current world. They are here to remind you to enjoy life and savor each moment for the joy that is in it. Perhaps it’s simply time to celebrate who you are, your accomplishments or just for the sheer fun of it. You are reminded that life is for living – and that each moment you waste on sending forth negative emotions such as fear, hatred and anger are moments that are forever lost. Find joy in the now.’ www.spirit-animals.com/goldfinch
Isn’t that beautiful? So true too. I’ve got the message. But let’s get back to what I started with.
Keeping the Earth Star chakra (located about a foot below your feet) open and grounded into the centre of the planet assists in anchoring higher vibrations, information or healing you receive into the earth and physical planes. The simplest way to do this is with a visualisation, assisted by a crystal or two of course:
Note: Whenever you are in an area of seriously disturbed earth energy, protect your Earth Star chakra by visualizing a large Flint, Smoky Quartz or Smoky Elestial Quartz all around it. The root will still be able to pass down to the centre of the earth to bring powerful energy to support you, and the crystal will help to transmute and stabilize the negative energy. Even a virtual crystal can work when visualized with intent, but placing an actual crystal here intensifies the effect.
Balancing and opening the knee chakras helps you to ground and assimilate higher vibrational energies while maintaining your connection to the earth. Placing an appropriate crystal on each knee facilitates this.
This picture will help you to ground:
The Gaia Gateway
Just in case you’re not familiar with the Gaia Gateway, it’s located beneath the Earth Star below your feet. This chakra links you to Mother Earth and to the soul of the planet. It anchors high frequency light into the physical body and the body of the Earth. Without this chakra high vibrational energy cannot be assimilated and grounded. It adjusts your electromagnetic frequency so that it remains in harmonic resonance with that of the planet and facilitates an uplift in your own personal resonance. It, together with the stellar gateway above your head, allows kundalini energy to travel up the spine, into the higher chakras over the head, and then to cascade down through the subtle energy bodies into the Gaia gateway. The energy then travels back up to the dantien below your navel where it can be stored until needed or move out in the cells and intercellular spaces of the physical and subtle bodies. This chakra connects you to the soul and spirit of the planet, Gaia, and to Mother Earth herself. When your Gaia gateway is open and functioning at optimum, you are aware of being a part of a sacred whole, part of the energy system of the Earth and, at the same time, All That Is. When balanced and open, this chakra helps you to protect yourself from entity attachment and lower energies. By holding you gently in incarnation and in contact with the planet, it mitigates the more extreme symptoms of ascension and kundalini rise. You can read all about in my forthcoming Crystal Prescriptions 4: The A-Z guide to chakra balancing crystals and kundalini activation stones.
Now you can look to the skies!
