The power and benefits of grounding

Grounding is a spiritual term, referring to centering your soul in your body, and in turn, connecting it with Mother Earth. When these connections are strong, it can help you feel safer and more in touch with the earth and Mother Nature. If you experience a lot of fear and anxiety in your day-to-day, it is possible that you have become ungrounded. Practice centering yourself via grounding or earthing as it is widely called.

Usually, the term grounding is often applied to stabilizing electricity. The world is made up of electrical and magnetic fields or currents (electromagnetic), including our bodies. We are endlessly emitting vibrational signals out from our organs, while also receiving them from the objects around us. Simply put, when our skin comes into contact with the ground, the molecules in our bodies receive an extra boost of vital energy.

Grounding is like when a baby connects with the mother’s womb by drinking her milk. Grounding yourself is simply connecting yourself to the ground, the soil, the place you came from and the place you’ll be buried in when you die.

What is the ground ? “The Ground” is simply the surface of planet earth. According to science, the ground is the reference point in an electrical circuit from which voltages are “measured”. According to psychology, Grounding is simply a term used in conjunction with the energy fields around us. This is why sometimes the words centering and grounding are used interchangeably. Being grounded means that we’re content with who we are. It means that we are sure of ourselves and have confidence in the decisions we are making.

When we ground ourselves, we’re intentionally calming or slowing down our emotions and getting more in touch with our internal and external worlds. This is a very powerful way to balance your yin and yang. It is a great way to center yourself.

Earthing or grounding is the practice of physically connecting oneself as closely as possible to the earth by going barefoot, lying on the ground, sitting or standing. The energy of the earth (the bare floor) has energy that can heal both physical and emotional illnesses. You might be wondering how is that ? Well, the earth is negatively charged, so, when a human body makes direct contact with the earth, the earth’s electrons neutralize the free radicals in the person’s body.

How do you ground? That’s quite simple, easy and perhaps the most intriguing, and most criticized, aspect of grounding is its simplicity. It proposes the idea that all you need, in order to be your most healthy, revitalized self, is to spend time connecting with nature.

Here’s what to do —- Find a comfortable seat on the earth, or you can choose to stand, Close your eyes and breath deeply. Feel the supporting soil underneath. Imagine roots stemming out from the base of your spine and into the core of the earth. Reach as far down as you can imagine, fractal roots surrounded by and connected to Mother Earth. Spend a few breaths embodying this strong, feminine, empowering and supportive energy. This connection is always available to you. Return to your heart center and send your blessings of gratitude to mother earth out into the world.

Mantras and words can be very powerful tools to use whilst grounding, they hold their own vibration, so the thoughts and words you speak impact the energetic fields around you.

There are no consequences to grounding, only the opportunity to benefit your overall health and well-being. Remember you are wearing a bathing suit and planet called “Earth”.

The journey to happiness

Everybody wants to be happy. It’s the most common goal hue man beings have and it’s simply because we live in a society where happiness comes last. People have been psychologically brainwashed into thinking that you have to work hard to be happy, be married or have a lot of money etc.

The journey to happiness is simply the journey to self, which is simply a self conscious lifestyle. Happiness is a lifestyle. You have to decide it and choose it over anything every single day. That’s where discipline comes in. Self discipline is self mastery.

How do you know if you’re mastering yourself? You know by the things you spend most of the time doing daily. By being accountable, observing your habits, thought processes and being in tune with your true nature. It’s as delicate as taking care of a baby’s very unstable needs. It requires vulnerability and childlike imagination.

An author once said, “Happiness is like a butterfly: the more you chase it, the more it will elude you, but if you turn your attention to other things, it will come and sit softly on your shoulder”.

If you’ve been looking for happiness, the good news is that your choices, thoughts and actions can influence your level of happiness. It’s not as easy as flipping a switch, but you can turn up your happiness level.

Below are a few steps to follow on the journey to happiness.

The first step is to make a conscious choice to boost your happiness. Then, cultivate the habit of gratitude.Make a commitment to practice gratitude. Each day identify at least one thing that enriches your life. When you find yourself thinking an ungrateful thought, try substituting a grateful one. For example, replace “My wife forgot my birthday” with “My wife has always been there for me during tough times.”

Practice exercise or yoga ——Try to include it in your daily routine . Practice yoga or exercise daily for 30 minutes at least in the morning . It will make you healthy and increase the oxygen level in the body. Health is wealth as they always say. The healthier you are the happier you become. You will feel more in tune with your body and more confident if you practice yoga or exercise daily. It helps to keep your mental and physical health up to the mark.

Meditate——— This is a very qualified way of keeping yourself happy and energetically high always. Once you know the proper technique and start doing it daily for 10-15 minutes, you will be at a different level than you are right now.

Cultivate the habit of forgiveness—— Holding a grudge and nursing grievances can affect physical as well as mental health. Learn to forgive, (practice makes better). Learn the art of letting go.

Practice unconditional love ——- Pretend you have an emotional bank account. Fill it with kind words and actions. Be careful and gracious with critique. Also, let people know that you appreciate what they do for you or even just that you’re glad they’re part of your life.

Practice being optimistic—- If you’re not an optimistic person by nature, it may take time for you to change your pessimistic thinking. Start by recognizing negative thoughts as you have them. Take note of them, then ask your self why you you feel or think that way ? Ask yourself does that serve your highest good.? Ask yourself if that makes you happy right now, does it benefit your creator ? . Then proceed to the opposite of those thoughts and repeat every time you catch yourself being negative.

Live in the present moment —- Don’t postpone joy waiting for a day when your life is less busy or less stressful. That day may never come. Instead, look for opportunities to savor the small pleasures of everyday life. Focus on the positives in the present moment, instead of dwelling on the past or worrying about the future.

Also, spending time with supportive friends, associates or family, cultivating a grateful attitude and an optimistic outlook, focusing on your purpose, and living in the present can help you take steps toward being happier.

The journey to happiness is the journey to your most authentic self. Rule no 1. Fuck what they think. Live your life and be happy. You absolutely deserve it!

Save your energy and focus on yourself

Feed your focus and starve your distractions is a quote I’m sure you must have come across one way or another. But as hue-man beings, we tend to rush everything including breathing, reading etc. Try to read this is as slow and deliberate as possible.

SAVE YOUR ENERGY, FOCUS ON YOURSELF AND GET FAR AWAY FROM DISTRACTIONS.

The world at large is going through a spiritual cleanse, more like karmic reset. But majority of us see things as the media wants us to perceive it. When do we get to the point when we realize that most of what we see is not what is really happening ? When do we get to that point? Are we going to wait until 2025 to realize that we are all pawns in the matrix until you WAKE UP and THINK FOR YOURSELF?

You are a piece to the puzzle. The universe is a puzzle and every living being has a ROLE to play. Your duty is to figure out what your role is and be exceptionally great at it.

For instance, If we are deprived of food for too long, our bodies won’t have enough energy left to perform physical tasks. If we don’t sleep for two days straight, we won’t have enough energy to partake in a meaningful conversation. Not eating, or not sleeping will drain us of our energy reserves. We all understand this because it’s common sense.

But there are also many other negative habits, which we simply aren’t aware of – slowly robbing us of any extra energy we might have. These habits include: overeating, long hours in front of the TV, compulsive complaining, etc.

If you want to get something great done in your life, you must first be able to adopt habits that preserve your energy, and free yourself of habits that waste it.

2020 is a perfect example of why you should focus on yourself , anything can happen which I believe means one has to be prepared for absolutely anything at this point. As a matter of fact, this is going to be the new norm.( wearing of masks which hide your identity ie prisoners, social distancing, lockdowns, food scarcity etc.) We are OUR ONLY SAVIORS and we have to do better. The very least you can do is SPEAK UP, FIGHT FOR YOUR FREEDOM, or better still fight for the unborn children because this is new world they’ll be born into. We can only change our reality by changing our point of focus.

Focus requires concentration, patience and attention. In other to achieve anything exceptionally you need to pay attention right? So, question is, what are you paying attention to ? Your mental and spiritual development? Your physical health ? Your thinking patterns ? Your trauma responses? What are you putting your energy on ? The media, the mass violence happening all over the world? Politics ? Your career? You decide YOUR FUTURE by your PRESENT. Choose wisely.

Save your energy, face your demons instead. Focus on your priorities. Make yourself your one number priority. Turn the lens around to yourself and see yourself for what you truly are. DO YOU LIKE YOU? Do you like yourself and your current habits ? Are you around the people that elevate your mind state or are you around people who make you feel less of yourself?, Are you getting better at improving your self as a whole? What are you waiting for ? A prophet ? A UFO? Wake up and do what you have to do now. So you don’t get dropped like a fly when the awakened souls transcend. Be your own motivator and guide. Look within you for acceptance not outside you.

Save your energy. It is already a lot of work to focus on yourself. How about you make that a priority and see how much less time you have for anything else.

Face your demons now

Your fears can be your very own trap or prison, holding your happiness and dreams out of your reach. By inviting your demons to tea, you establish ownership of your shadow. You bravely go where many fear to tread. You have the guts to face your anger, fear, jealousy, lack of self-acceptance.

In order to be truly happy and content, it is important that you are honest about the kind of life that you are leading. Unless you face your demons, it will be impossible for you to achieve your full potential. You will always be held back by underlying issues that are yet to be resolved. If you are going to prevent this from happening, you will need to make a change.

It’s a battle that goes on inside all of us, whether it be our fears, sadness, anxiety, frustrations and disappointments tormenting us and preventing us from experiencing happiness, peace, love and hope. Just like with every battle there are two options: you can choose to hide from these demons and negative energies or you can choose to fight. Fear is has a huge role to play in facing your demons. You know the saying -Flight or fight? Do you know that without fear there will be no courage?

Ever experienced that period in your life that you would simply describe as dark? When all hope and light seems to fade and you find yourself surrounded by negativity with no help in sight? Times where you may feel abandoned, lonely, sad, a sense of dread, even fear. At the time you couldn’t even imagine what the world once looked like to you and all you see now is the inevitable doom that humanity faces. At the time it can be an overwhelming experience that can often shake us to the very core…but handled correctly, it can actually be a very beneficial and life altering experience. It usually is a divine message to you, if you pay attention.

You may be wondering how that could possibly be the case. How could somebody showing dark night of the soul symptoms possibly come out the other side in a positive manner? Surely the entire experience is soul destroying? Well, while it is true that the experience is challenging and many people do come out the other side feeling defeated, it can be used as a form of spiritual healing or therapy.

You must have heard about the power of communication. “Communication is key”, Whether you believe it or not self communication is the golden key. When you go through an experience, it usually is because you need to grow, wake-up, learn or teach lessons from that experience. You achieve this by communicating genuinely with your self. By facing your demons, by looking at yourself exactly as you are, Ask yourself how you feel and why you feel how you feel ? Allow the emotions to flow, they are answers. It is very healing and therapeutic. Every being has to go through this to evolve and come out on the other side. However,there are beings who will not evolve and that’s okay. There are beings who prefer the cycle they are experiencing because it’s familiar to them. Spiritual growth is an unfamiliar territory which is uncomfortable. It’s not for everyone.

Demons are described as crazy, scary monsters, just like the scary crazy habits, thoughts, feelings that you have. If you were to describe those dark feelings and thoughts you had, as an item or a person what would it be?Everyone has the yin and yang. To face your demons is to look in the mirror. it’s time to see your truest nature and be it. It requires vulnerability. Just as I wrote on my last post, The dark night of the soul . If the universe could speak right now, with all that you see happening on the “surface” ( YANG), in our society today? The universe is saying loud and clear , now is the time when you literally face your demons (the habits, patterns, contracts, energies) that has been destroying and delaying your authenticity. The ones you refuse to accept about yourself. These demons have a role to play in your evolution so you should not run away from facing them. There comes a time where you will be forced to face them, accept them, forgive yourself and evolve. When would you rather do that?

Fear is a tool. Use it to your advantage. “Without fear, there will be no courage”.

How to overcome anxiety

Hi Royalties, I send love and warmth your way especially during this weird times. I know a lot of people are feeling the heat right now including myself but I also know that everything that has a beginning has an end. These times have called for taking a step back and re -evaluating but most importantly I believe we are being called to deeply relax and allow nature take its refreshing course irregardless of what’s going on.

There is so much tension in the air .. but on earth there is so much transformation going on. Anxiety and depression usually comes with times like this. Fear comes in different forms and anxiety is one of them.However, to overcome anxiety is to first be aware of the root cause and then take adequate measures to get out of that energy.

Anxiety is simply putting in so much percentage level-on what you should do or shouldn’t do. One of the main reasons one might be experiencing anxiety is observing and caring too much about the reactions of others,loss of reputation, being restricted in any way shape or form etc”. Anxiety usually stems from being in a “box” for too long . That energy could be sticky which makes you unable to move freely. Then panic, doubt, fear, anxiety sets … and of course,makes you very nervous. For instance,you’re locked up with in a boundary/ restriction/limit. (This could be just about your location or people you’re around). Here’s the thing anxiety comes from you not thinking you’re doing the right thing within that environment or thinking too much about not being right because of the people around and vice versa.

Understand that there is no right or wrong! It is only your perspective! So if you think you’re doing something not right, it’s obviously because you think someone else feels it isn’t or something around you is making you feel that way … this could be on a micro or macro scale.

Basically, anxiety is you thinking too much about what you’re observing and thinking what you’re doing is not right” ( remember there is no right or wrong ).. so this could be about the way people act compared to how you act. The first mistake here is that what’s wrong for you maybe right for someone else ..and what’s right for someone could be wrong for you— “Perspective”. So stop comparing!

To overcome anxiety, you have to understand your perspective, which usually is the root cause and then express why you feel that way. When one becomes anxious, it means you’re not being (living) in the present moment. You are worrying about the future” what hasn’t happened. While depression is simply being “deeply pressed over a situation”- which is related to living in the past.

Below are my few steps to help you overcome anxiety.

1-Practice breathing exercises using a countdown to keep you stable.

2-Take a cold shower.

3-Re-direct your energy and do something totally unusual to you as this helps you break free from that mental prison.

4- Stop censoring what you say or do ( do not put restrictions on your self ).

5- Practice spending time with people who treat you well.

6- Treat yourself like like someone you’re in love with.

7- Believe you can heal.

Stay calm, breathe and stay optimistic. Everything changes. You can get through it. Yes you can!
