Ground Yo'self!

Ground yourself--connect to the centred calm within to maintain yourself.  You need this centring to remember who you are, keeping yourself anchored.  As a sensitive soul, it can be easy to forget this and to allow yourself to slip out of this centred place.  When this occurs, you are losing yourself--becoming overstimulated by data you have intuitively sensed.  To effectively sort through this data for empowered knowledge, you need this anchor.

Grounding keeps you present.  It keeps you in the NOW. Energetically, it is refocusing your consciousness upon yourself and your experience.  Biologically, it resets your nervous system to homeostasis.  Psychologically, it roots you in the present, mindfully aware and not ruminating over the past or possible future.

There are as many ways to ground as there are people incarnated--anything which brings your awareness to your calm centre will do.  Meditation, affirmation, visualization, going outside, moving your body--anything--can be grounding.  You need only to set the intent to ground and so it shall be.

Whichever methods work to ground yourself, try doing twice daily (once in the morning and once in the evening) as well as anytime you feel called to do so throughout the day.  It need not take long, as little as 30 seconds can be effective.  Begin to know what it feels like to be centred, and wire your brain to achieve this state.  With practice, you will be able to return to this centred state more and more readily.  You will begin to notice when you're not feeling grounded and consciously choose to become centred. You will find yourself becoming more empowered with your sensitivity--making a conscious decision to be at peace, regardless of the energy and events external to yourself.

Play around and explore different ways to become centred consciously.  Reclaim your calm.  Thrive.

May you have a peaceful day,
Jaclyn :)
