1. Grounding

It is essential to our health and well being that we stay grounded except when we intentionally work with Spirit. If we work at all in the spiritual world we often intentionally or unintentionally become ungrounded. We can also become ungrounded through trauma - even a short argument can take us off Mother Earth's holding energy into an unconnected place in the ether.

The following methods are quick easy and effective ways of grounding oneself.

Grounding Using Trees

Even in London and other cities there are many many trees in streets, parks, and gardens. A quick and easy way to ground is to place one or ideally two hands on the tree and ask it to ground you. As you can see from this photo in our local park in London you don't need to look too weird. It is such a wonderful way to ground your body and spirit in Mother Earth.

Grounding walking on the Earth

Walking barefoot on the earth connects us with Mother Earth. I try to do this every day outside including in the winter! There are Scientific Peer Reviewed Papers which show that walking barefoot on the earth is beneficial both physically and psychologically.

I walk on the grass or paving stones in my small garden, on the short grass in the park, on the beach but I do not walk barefoot in local ancient woods or the long grass in meadows because I am wary of ticks which can give Lyme Disease.


Quick bit of help?. Trees and roots

Grounding using meditation

I have a morning meditation I complete every morning - it is like cleaning my teeth. Included in this meditation is grounding myself into mother earth. I also have a permanent tether into mother earth which I found incredibly helpful and it has stopped me inadvertently breaking free into the ether. This tether allows me to work with Spirit with intention, safe and using my power.

Grounding Meditation
Sit down and close your eyes with your hands in your lap. Breathe deeply. Allow your feet to connect with the ground.

See roots growing out of your feet like the roots of a tree through the floor, down through the building into Mother Earth. Let the roots from your feet grow down, down, down, deeper and deeper into the core of mother earth. See the roots out of the bottom of your feet reach the centre of the earth- the golden core of the earth.

Now feel a strong flexible root grow down from your tail, a tether which is connected through a springy roots to the centre of Mother Earth. Feel this root grow down, down, down deeper and deeper into the core of the earth next to the roots from your feet.

Now soak up the golden unconditional love of mother earth through your roots rising through your body. Allow and receive the healing from the divine mother.

[GAP}

Draw your roots up from the earth and bring them back inside your feet keeping the flexible tether from your tail to Mother Earth in place. Slowly bring yourself back into the room let your breathing return to normal and open your eyes. Pat your body and make sure that you are back in the present, energised and safe."

If you do this meditation again you do not need to put down another tether you need to check it is in place and make sure that it is still passing the golden light energy through from Mother Earth.

2. It's my power!

What is Power?

Power is a form of energy. We all give and take power and energy every day. Sometimes we freely give it to someone, sometimes it is freely given to us from others. Other times … well perhaps we sneek a bit of power from someone else to help prop ourselves up occasionally or someone takes a bit of our power?

One of the most important things for me and for my clients to learn and practice is to stand in your own power. With your own power you can move mountains. I only want and need my own power and I do not want anyone else to use mine. I want everyone to have the power and joy that comes from this.

Here is a very short, simple and effective exercise which I do every morning. For me is like cleaning my teeth. I listen to a short voice recording that I have made every day and it makes sure that my power is in the right place, clean and fresh. If you would like a mp3 version of this email me.

Pink Filter Meditation for balancing your Power

Sit or lie comfortably with your feet flat on the floor
Relax and close your eyes.
Relax your muscles
And breathe in deeply
Long deep breathing
fill your lower abdomen with breath
Feel your lower tummy rise as you breathe in
And know you are safe and loved

See a pink ball around you – a filter shaped like a balloon with the opening buried deep in mother earth. This filter ensures that any heavy energy that passes through the filter slips down into mother earth to be mulched into love and light. Mother earth delights in receiving heavy energy. We need to eliminate it from our bodies to become and remain whole and Mother Earth benefits from it. As the heavy energy is sucked into the ground it transforms into tiny particles of golden light and love. It is your gift to mother earth and her gift to you.

Now call back all your energies that you have given out to other people or places. Say out loud or in your mind: “I call back all my energy from all the people and places that it has passed to.” These energies pass through the pink filter ensuring they are pure and light when they return. All the heavy energy is sucked into Mother Earth to be mulched into love and light.

Now send back all the energies that you have taken from others. Say out loud or in your mind “I now return all my energy to all the people and places that I have taken the energy from.” Again the energies pass through the filter ensuring they are pure and light when they return. All the heavy energy is sucked into Mother Earth to be mulched into love and light.

Now feel yourself coming back into the room and you are aware of your body and you move your feet around and you wriggle your fingers and pat your body. And you become aware of your breathe become normal and bring yourself back into the room body and soul and in control and grounded.

3. Being in Your Body

Sometimes with a trauma, a meditation, a Shamanic journey or other mystical processes we leave our body and do not come back naturally. Sadly sometimes when we are led on a guided meditation the lead does not bring you back and make sure you are grounded and back in your body. It is not safe to be out of your body without intention so after any process we should consciously make sure we are back by patting ourselves, tapping our feet and feeling we have returned.

However if you find that you still feel “spaced” then this exercise will bring you back fully into your body.

Exercise to return to your body.

Stand tall with your feet slightly apart. Place your right hand on chest and your left hand on solar plexus
Now chant out loud three times using your whole body and abdominal breathing:
3 x No Kan Kany
3 x Hump-we
3 x own name

Then breathe deeply and visulise while you breathe: :

Inhaling through your crown.
Exhaling through your navel.
Inhaling through your right shoulder.
Exhaling through your navel.
Inhaling through your left shoulder.
Exhaling through your navel.
Inhaling through your right hip.
Exhaling through your navel.
Inhaling through your left hip.
Exhaling through your navel.
Inhaling through your navel.

Exhaling through your navel.

Now pat your body down, wriggle your toes, stamp your feet etc to make sure that you have arrived back in your body.

4. Hucha Dumping

Mother earth likes heavy energy as she can mulch it. Heavy energy is not dark it is the the energy which makes us stuck and needs to be removed from our body like waste. I do this ritual every morning like cleaning my teeth and it allows me to grow and move forward in the light.

Releasing Heavy Energy – Hucha Dumping
Close your eyes, have your feet flat on the ground. See a tube come from you solar plexus and bury itself deep, deep, deep into mother earth.
Feel the tube act like a hand held vacuum cleaner drawing all the heavy energy from your body. Clear the extremities first, fingers toes ears etc and then the core of your body. Allow the heavy energy to be drawn down into mother earth where she can mulch them into golden flakes of love and light. Mother earth likes heavy energy as she can mulch it. Give it as a gift of love to love.
Draw up the tube and seal it.
Place your left palm upright and open the palm of your hand. Now imagine the crown of your head opening. Receive K’anchai energy (light energy) through your crown and your palm filling your body with light.
Now close your crown and lower your hand.
Open your eyes

5.Shamanic Garden Meditation

Your Shamanic Garden is a place where you can go to be safe, work, learn or journey. Once you have been there a few times then you should be able to go very quickly without using a drum or you can record the journey as a meditation. I often sleep in my garden if I want to be safe or sleep peacefully. I also use it for Shamanic work. I always use a tree in my garden to journey from and back to as I know I will be completely safe. I plant ideas in the earth and come back to them to see how they are growing, I speak to people, talk with my animal allies and do healing etc in different parts of the garden. It is a very special and important space which is mine. No one can enter it without my permission.

Meditation to go to your Shamanic Garden:

Just sit down or lie down and relax.
Relax your muscles. Your neck, your shoulders, your arms, your hands
And breathe in deeply through your nostrils and out through your nostrils
Long deep breathing focusing on the breathe as it comes in and out of your nostrils

And as you breathe in fill your lower abdomen with breath
Feel your lower tummy rise as you breathe in
And know you are safe and loved

Now as you continue to breath long and slow and deep with your eyes closed and your mind starting to move into a meditative space.

Now in your imagination get up from your bed and walk down a path towards the door of a huge crystal quartz dome. Open the door and step inside and close the door behind you. You know that inside this dome nothing untoward can come in and you are safe.
You see a path towards a beautiful, beautiful garden. In front of you there are ten wide safe steps with a strong handrail. Walk down these wonderful white safe steps – One, Two Three going down, four five six going down seven, eight nine ten going down

You find yourself on the edge of the beautiful, beautiful garden.

The sky is blue, the clouds are white and fluffy and wispy and the whole garden is bathed in the most beautiful light – golden sunshine

You can feel the grass beneath your feet spongy and rich. You walk across the grass to an amazing stream which shines in the sunshine and ripples
It has beautiful smooth pebbles at the bottom, golds and browns and yellows which glisten through the clear crystalline water. When you step into it the pebbles are smooth and the water is warm and comforting. You walk up the stream and there is a deep pool shaped like a bath in which you could lie and wallow. Ahead you can see a beautiful waterfall with the water spraying down gently like a shower and rainbows glistening and the water flows down from a green verdant back of grass. You walk up to the waterfall and stand under it and are washed in the most beautiful, beautiful iridescent light.
You return to the bank of the stream and walk across the grass.
Ahead you can see across the grass a beautiful orchard full of blossom and fruiting trees. You can see trees with bright fruit waiting to be picked.
To your right you can see a shelter with an enfolding feather bed waiting for someone go into a deep peaceful healing sleep. A path goes around the shelter and leads to a healing garden with trees, a pond fed by a gentle waterfall and flower beds full of beautiful sweet smelling flowers. There is a large turned and weeded flower bed where you can plant your seeds.
To the left there is a path which splits goes into an open grass and woodland. By the path is a large tree with branches that you can climb to the top of the trunk and right up to the sky. Down one path you can see in the distance a large oak glade where you can go to heal relationships and down the other a linden glade where you can go to heal and vision.

All around the garden there are places to rest and walk. The garden rolls gently on and on.
Choose where to go in the garden. Wander on and see what you can see and do what you wish to do in absolute safety and peace.

Now it is time to come back. Walk across the garden to the ten wide safe steps with a strong handrail. Walk up these wonderful white safe steps – One, Two Three going up, four five six going up seven, eight nine ten going up.
Open the door in the huge crystal quartz dome and step outside and close the door behind you. Walk down the path and back into this room.

6. Morning Meditation

I do this meditation every morning. I have recorded it on my smartphone with music in the background. I listen to it first thing in the morning sitting up with my feet flat on my bed. I have found that this is a good way for me to have the discipline to cleanse, ground and open myself safely to spirit every day.

Morning Meditation

Sit comfortably with your feet flat on the floor or on your bed.

Now relax your muscles. Relax your scalp, your forehead, your eyebrows, your eyes, your cheeks, your nose, your lips, your tongue, your chin, the back of your head, the back of your neck, the front of your neck, your collarbone, your shoulders, the top of your arms, your elbows, the bottom of your arms, your wrists, your hands, your fingers, the top of your back, your chest, your middle back, your abdomen, your lower back, your pelvis, your hips, the front of your thighs, the back of your thighs, your knees, your shins, your calves, your ankles, your feet and your toes. Relax your whole body.

Breathe in deeply through your nostrils and out through your nostrils
Long deep breathing and as you breathe in fill your lower abdomen with breath
Feel your lower tummy rise as you breathe in
And know you are safe and loved

[Gap]

Now see yourself sitting at the eye of the storm, at the centre of the Aztec cross. Know that here, you are at the eye of the storm. No one and no thing can disturb your peace here. The four elements are here. Behind you is fire and with fire is Puma. Ahead of you is water and with water is Dolphin. To your left is earth and with earth is Serpent and to your right is air and with air Horse. Above you flies eagle.

[Gap]

Spend a few moments thinking what your intention is for today.

[Gap]

See a pink ball around you – a filter shaped like a balloon with the opening buried deep in Mother Earth. This filter ensures that any heavy energy that passes through the filter slips down into mother earth to be mulched into love and light. Mother Earth delights in receiving heavy energy. We need to eliminate it from our bodies to become and remain whole and the earth benefits from it. As the heavy energy is sucked into the ground it transforms into tiny particles of golden light and love. It is your gift to Mother Earth and her gift to you.

Now call back all your energies that you have given out to other people or places. These energies pass through the filter ensuring they are pure and light when they return.

Now send back all the energies that you have taken from others, again energies pass through the filter ensuring they are pure and light when they are returned.

[Gap]

See a tube come from you solar plexus and bury itself deep, deep, deep into mother earth.
Feel the tube act like a hand held low energy vacuum cleaner drawing all the dark and heavy energy from your body. Clear the extremities first and then the core of your body. Allow the heavy energy to be drawn down into mother earth where she can mulch them into golden flakes of love and light. Mother earth likes heavy energy as she can mulch it. Give it as a gift of love to love.

[Gap]

Allow your feet to connect with the earth. Feel the strong root from your tail the tether which is connected through a springy cord to the centre of mother earth.

Allow roots to grow out of your feet like the roots of a tree. Let the roots from your feet grow down, down, down, deeper and deeper into the core of mother earth. The roots out of the bottom of your feet reach the golden centre of the earth. Soak up the golden unconditional love of mother earth through your roots rising through your body. Allow and receive the healing from the divine mother.

[Gap]

And now, very gently, open up your crown and start to connect with the heavens above whilst remaining in connected with divine mother earth. Open up your crown and connect with your higher self, your star chakra which sits above your head a meter or so above your crown chakra and then connect higher. Connect through a tunnel of light to the highest energy of this universe, to the light source, to the angels the ascended masters to your guides to the emissaries of God to the universal source, God, Creator, Great Spirit, who is known by a thousand names and is un-nameable.

Let the earth energy pass through you up to the heavens and let the heavenly energy pass down through you into the earth. You are right there in the centre. In the centre between heaven and earth you are bringing heaven to earth. You can be the joy the peace the love of heaven on earth.

[Sizeable gap]

And now very gently you are going to bring yourself back inside yourself. Dissolve the pink filter. Draw up the tube from the earth and close your sacrum. Draw your roots up from the earth and bring them back inside your feet keeping the tether to mother earth in place. Draw your higher self-back inside yourself, into your navel so that you are you once more.

Ask Archangel Michael to protect and guide you every moment of the day and every day allow your spirit to grow and develop and become lighter and stronger, happier and more joyful.

And you feel powerful and you feel yourself coming back into the room and you are aware of your body and you move your feet around and you wriggle your fingers and pat your body. And you become aware of your breathe become normal and bring yourself back into the room body and soul and in control and grounded.
