You have probably heard the term ‘grounding’ because it has become a mainstream term that is used in many different contexts. There are endless ways to ground yourself, from taking your shoes off and standing in the grass, to using your breath as a way to focus your attention and bring yourself back to calm. Grounding can be very powerful when you choose the method that feels the most right to you.
While connecting with nature feels pretty good and centering yourself to calm your emotions when you are triggered is helpful, the benefits of grounding extend far beyond a short-lived reprieve from the chaos of life.
When you are fully grounded in each moment as it unfolds in front of you, it means that you are exercising your highest degree of conscious awareness. You are present and engaged in the current moment. You are able to connect with the plentiful opportunities for growth that lay themselves at your feet and then quickly disappear. When you are grounded and present, you invite spiritual and worldly growth to happen with expediency.
When you are worrying about what happened yesterday or focusing your thoughts on what might happen next, you are missing what is happening right in front of you. You are unable to study the details of what is unfolding in real time around you because your mind is fabricating a future event, which may or may not take place, or replaying something from the past that you cannot change.
The more practiced you are at bringing yourself back to the present moment, the less precious time you waste on your journey to grow your soul. For many, nature is a perfect grounding vehicle if only for the reason that it is captivating. If you go outside and take a walk in the woods, you may notice that your surroundings are teeming with life and movement. If you focus your attention on all that is happening around you in each moment, you are likely going to be moved in some way.
You may find yourself awestruck at the wonder and beauty of trees, or flowers, or birds. You may also find that nature inspires reverence and appreciation in you. This comes from you decluttering your mind and allowing your inner spirit to speak to you, to bring you “home” to your true self.
You are of divine origins, and you are an eternal being with an innate desire to continuously grow. The best way to satisfy this soul desire is to seize absolutely every opportunity that crosses your path. Grounding will ensure that you connect with these opportunities.
