What is Grounding & How to Ground

"Grounding" means to be connected to your physical reality. It means that you are living fully in the present moment rather than feeling “spaced out” and dwelling on the future or the past.

There are many types of grounding. All of them focus on reconnecting yourself to the earth. This can be done through either direct or indirect contact with the earth.

Crystals are an excellent source of grounding energy because they are a physical reminder of your intentions. Holding  or wearing grounding crystals will allow your mind to float back to reality. Black Tourmaline, Black Onyx, Smoky Quartz, Rock Crystal, Obsidian, Tigers Eye and Jasper are all said to be great crystals to use for when trying to ground.

When we feel grounded, we're connected to the present moment, centered, and calm. When we're not grounded, however, we can feel scattered, stressed, and anxious.Grounding, also called earthing, is a therapeutic technique that involves doing activities that “ground” or electrically reconnect you to the earth.

This practice relies on earthing science and grounding physics to explain how electrical charges from the earth can have positive effects on your body.

For some people it isn't uncommon to feel ungrounded when stressed, anxious or overwhelmed but there are a lot of grounding exercises that can help ground you and improve your feelings and wellbeing.

These techniques can be exercises that calm your mind and allow you to centre and reconnect with the present moment. Another term 'earthing' is realigning you with your surrounding environment. 

Using senses such as sight, sound, touch, taste and smell can help reframe your mindset and shift your energy when grounding.
