What Is Grounding, and Why Is It Beneficial? | Energetic Hygiene

Grounding is a concept often associated with various spiritual traditions and practices. It encompasses not only physical actions, like walking barefoot on the earth, but also an energetic tool designed to enhance your well-being. In this article, we'll explore the practice of energetic grounding, its importance, and how it can positively impact your daily life.

The Energetic Tool of Grounding

Energetic grounding involves creating a grounding cord from the center of your head, specifically your third eye or sixth chakra. This cord extends down to your first chakra, or root chakra, connecting you to the earth. Its primary purpose is to remove energies that do not belong to you or any unnecessary energy from your body, chakras, and aura.

This seemingly simple tool can have a profound effect on your overall well-being.

The Significance of Grounding

Think of grounding as essential energetic hygiene, similar to the physical practices that eliminate waste and debris from your body. When you shower, you remove external physical impurities, and when you use the bathroom, you eliminate internal waste. In the same vein, grounding serves as a means to discharge and release any energy that doesn't belong to you or any excess energy within your energy body.

If this foreign energy lingers within your energy field for too long, you may begin to mistake it for your own. Over time, it can create discomfort, stagnation, and a sense of being out of balance. Grounding is crucial in preventing this all-too-common scenario from occurring.

A Story From My Personal Experience

Here's a story about grounding (or lack thereof!) from my life as a professional musician - maybe some of you can relate to what happened here:

I showed up to rehearsal with a bunch of people that I have never worked with before. I'm really excited to play. I sit down, and we begin rehearsing; everything's going well. However, as time persists, I started to feel really nervous and uncomfortable - that feeling of being out of focus, destabilized, and nervous. I just couldn't figure out why, and just dealt with the feelings as best I could. It wasn't like me to be nervous and out of focus in rehearsals, I'd been doing this work for several decades!

At a break in the rehearsal, the person next to me leans over and says, "I'm so sorry. I just don't feel like myself today. I'm just really nervous and unfocused." Aha! In that moment, when they spoke to me, I realized what had been happening: I was picking up all of their nervous, unfocused energy and thinking that it was mine. At the time I didn't have any effective tools to get rid of it. Just the understanding of what had happened energetically, which did help to alleviate some of the feelings. I wish that I knew about grounding at that time - I would have been able to quickly and effectively deal with this other person's energy that they were unknowingly sending my way!

I'm sure you, too, have similar stories - times when you felt strong feelings, energies that seemingly came forward "out of nowhere", that are very real and tangible but also not yours!

How Often Should You Ground?

The frequency of grounding varies among individuals and their unique needs. However, daily grounding is generally recommended, either in the morning or evening, depending on your preference. There is no strict time requirement for grounding.

Throughout the day, especially after exposure to intense energies from people or places, it's advisable to check the status of your grounding cord. Just as physical tools wear down with use, energy tools can experience wear and tear. If you notice any issues, you can create a new grounding cord as needed.
