Crystal Blessings – Revisited
It is always such a joy when I hear how crystals have changed people’s lives. When Joginder, who runs the Tree of Life in Birmingham, was introducing me last year he told the story of how he’d been in despair, feeling very lonely and finding it impossible to meet a partner who was on the...
One of the most prevalent causes of feeling vaguely unwell and out of sorts is being ungrounded. Ungroundedness means you are not fully in your physical body, you are not in the present moment, and your energy is scattered in all directions. Fortunately a simple exercise as you leave your bed in the morning will get you focussed and into your body.
And more intensive grounding:
You’ll find this elsewhere on the site but I can’t emphasise strongly enough the importance of being grounded!
Grounding is the single most effective thing you can do to protect yourself and ensure your well-being. Many people are vulnerable to invasion by negative energies simply because they do not have a strong enough connection to the planet. In other words they are ungrounded. If your boundaries are strong and you are rooted into the earth it acts like a firewall. Nothing detrimental can penetrate. But if your boundaries are diffuse or you are not connected to the planet, external energies may invade and drain. Ungroundedness occurs in people who are on a spiritual pathway, whether it be yoga, meditation or mindfulness, and who fail to keep contact between the earth and their physical body open. Having said that, if the earth’s own energies aren’t sparkling clean where you are, it may be necessary to protect the earth star and Gaia gateway chakras with crystal light when you ground yourself to the centre of the Earth. If earth healing is needed, check out Earth Blessings for indepth assistance.
In addition to keeping the earth-connector chakras cleansed and well-balanced, grounding crystals in your pockets or around your bed can assist in anchoring you to the earth. Belly breathing also helps to ground you to the planet and the grounding cord meditation practised daily until it becomes second nature is extremely effective. It doesn’t restrict you to the planet, indeed it can make journeys to other dimensions much more powerful because it enables you to bring the information back into the physical plane of awareness.
Before you begin, place a grounding crystal such as Flint or Hematite at your feet.
Hold a belly breathing crystal such as Jasper or Brown Carnelian loosely over your dantien (just below your navel).
Stand or sit with your feet firmly on the floor and your knees relaxed. Letting your shoulders hang low and loose, take a long, slow breath. Deliberately push out your ribs and belly and pull the breath deep into the base of your lungs towards the crystal. Feel your ribs expanding outwards at the back and sides, and your back and solar plexus opening up. Breathe in for a count of four (increase the count with practise), hold the breath for a count of two, and exhale slowly pulling your belly and ribs in to expel all the air for a count of ten. Press your ribs in with your arms if necessary. Rest a moment and take another breath. Repeat eight times more (stop immediately if you feel lightheaded and take your attention down to your feet, putting your feet on the earthing crystal or bouncing your feet firmly on the earth). Return to your normal breathing pattern but remember to pull the air deep down into your lungs.
If you are non-visual: massage the centre of the soles of your feet until they tingle and then place them firmly on the earth with a grounding crystal between them. Sense your grounding root growing from there and then up to a dantien crystal that you hold just below your navel.
Note: Whenever you are in an area of seriously disturbed earth energy, protect your earth star chakra by visualising a large protective crystal 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 stabilise the negative energy.
If your boundaries are too diffuse:
Complete the grounding cord exercise first and then:
Boundaries: instant protection
I make no apology for including one of my favourite protection practices. I find it invaluable for strengthening weak boundaries and providing emergency protection. A tiny piece of Amber is all you need:
‘The Amber Melt’
This also works well using Polychrome Jasper or Eye of the Storm (Judy’s Jasper). The different colours naturally present in the Jasper weave strands of protection all around your auric field. Wear the stones constantly to give you continued protection.
