Merry Meet, lovelies! Below is an outline of one of my favorite and most used grounding exercises. I’ve used this one for years and it has been a staple in many metaphysical circles I’ve practiced with, in one version or another. I hope you enjoy!

Sit comfortably with your feet flat on the ground, or cross-legged. Close your eyes and take 3 deep breaths – in through your nose and out through your mouth.

Next, imagine roots running from the bottoms of your feet through the Earth’s crust, down through all the layers to the very center of its core.

As the roots touch the core, breathe deeply and draw up the red, hot molten energy of the Earth. As you breathe, the energy travels up through your roots – all the way up until they touch your feet.

From your feet, feel the energy flow up your legs, through your torso, and down your arms. Continue to breathe up the energy through your roots until it reaches the tips of your fingers, toes and top of your head. Feel your whole body radiate with hot, earthen energy.

Now, imagine branches sprouting from the top of your head, reaching up towards the sky. Feel them traveling further and further into the atmosphere, stretching out into space. Keep stretching them until the tip of the longest branch touches a bright, blue star.

Feel the warm, glowing energy of that star travel back down the branch; breathe in that energy. With each breath you take, the blue energy travels back down the branch; all the down to the top of your head.

Keep breathing in the warm, blue energy of that star. Feel it travel down your face, neck and torso. Feel it flood your abdomen, down your legs, down your arms; traveling all the way to the tips of your fingers and toes. Your whole body is now full of bright, blue celestial energy.

Now, focus on your heart and feel it beating in your chest as you breathe. With each breath, feel the red, molten Earth energy swirl and mix with the bright blue, celestial energy. The energies swirl and merge with each breath, creating a brilliant purple energy. Continue to breathe and mix the energies until your whole being is filled with purple light.

Feel the warm, purple energy push out from your skin until it fills the space of around you. Keep filling the space, pushing out that purple energy, until you are enveloped by a bright ball of purple light – about 3 feet out from you in all directions.

Continue to push out the sphere, further and further, radiating it out in all directions. Feel the excess light fade down your legs and feet, into the Earth; leaving you warm, centered and grounded.

Take 3 deep breaths in and out, slowly feeling the weight of your body with each breath. When you’re ready, slowly open your eyes. Follow-up with a grounding activity, such as eating a small snack or holding hematite or a lodestone for a few minutes.
