Has this ever happened to you?

Situations don’t cause stress, our thoughts do. – Ron Fox

Happy Monday! Happy New Moon!

With today’s NEW Moon, a time of new beginnings and renewal, I am reminded of revisiting my intentions to get a CLEAR fresh start.

Summer tends to bring elevated energy and excitement in activities. Oftentimes, when in the throes of the high energy and excitement tremendous change occurs. Read on below for simple techniques to get grounded.

Has this ever happened to you?20131020_165809

I experienced a number of chaotic changes and energetic shifts this summer and found myself in the middle of a swirl of disconnection.

I know for me, this means I need to go within to my inner source, delve even deeper into my self-care practices to reconnect back to the earth. I receive instantaneous shifts to reclaim my wholeness and serenity.

One of the best ways to ground and to feel a deep sense of connection within is to just lie down on the ground, directly on the floor, or better yet outdoors on the grass or by the ocean.

Close your eyes, feel the presence of your whole body, connected deeply down into the ground and into the earth, and Just Breathe! Breathe into the space of your whole being lying there on the earth and be there for as long as you need. Feel the space underneath you and the space around you. Just sense every breath flow in and every breath flow out.

If you are unable to lie down you can come into Tadasana, Mountain Pose or sit in a chair with your feet placed firmly down into the floor.

With either method above remain there to feel the connection to the earth below you and underneath you. Envision you have deep roots growing, extending down underneath your whole body or feet. Sense and feel your deep connection in the ground and into the earth.

These are simple yet powerful practices for grounding and aligning with the earth to feel more centered and balanced, calm and clear, connected and focused while encouraging your connection to your Muladhara Chakra, the Root Chakra. Start with 5 minutes a day, then gradually increase your time 1 minute at a time.

Namaste! Have a lovely day!

Om Shanti,
