Awake & Evolve: Cycle 4 - Grounding Meditation
“The mind can go in a thousand directions, but on this beautiful path, I walk in peace. With each step, the wind blows. With each step, a flower blooms.”
~Thich Nhat Hanh~
Start by finding a comfortable place to sit quiet and still. Begin to imagine that you are breathing in a grounding earth energy. This energy flows in as you breath, up through the entire body, and then flows back down to the earth. With this meditation imagine that you can feel a flow of energy coming from the earth, flowing up through your body, again and again.
Imagine your body rooting down into the earth, and feel that root system spread, so you are feeling solidly anchored to the earth.
Notice the sensations that arise in the mind and body as you feel yourself ground deeper with each breath. Imagine feeling the earth, smelling the grass, and sensing the earth energy.
Stay here with this meditation for 10-20 minutes. Continue to come back to your breath as the mind begins to wander. Keep the focus coming back to a feeling of being grounded and a sensation of letting go, and finding stillness.
