Grounding Technique

Grounding to our planet is one of the first techniques in any type of energy work. This requires a fairly developed root chakra, also known as the muladhara in Sanskrit. This chakra is located at the base of the spine, the perineum. The energy of this chakra flows between the legs, downward, and connects to Mother Earth. When properly connected, energy practitioners will not use their own energy; instead, through the open channel of the base or root chakra, they direct the energy of Earth, through their chakras and energy systems, into streams of healing light energy. Most grounding methods focus on visualization, but use of the breath to physically and psychically connect to the core of the Earth is also an effective link to Earth’s vital energies.
To do this, you close your eyes and visualize your root chakra – it is a ruby red light with a tinge of gold. Then you take a deep breath and on the exhale, see this root-chakra light literally drill into the Earth. Then you continue to intentionally breathe, as this auric laser light cuts through every layer of earth. When you encounter the golden ball of light in the center of the Earth, you connect, yet again, to this light as you did in your beginning breath. Now, you use your breath to channel this golden light back to your base chakra.
Envision the light as it moves through all seven chakra centers. Once you reach the crown chakra, channel the light, onward, to the Sun. This may take several breaths to achieve, in conjunction with your visualization. Once the light of the Earth’s core is connected to the light of the Sun via your physical body, chakras, and energy system, you will notice a unique anomaly. A continuous, circular current develops between the two sources of unceasing light, and it pulses with your breath. Avid energy practitioners can expand or contract the amount of vital light energy, either faintly or strongly – and all degrees in-between – through their controlled breath. And the more you practice this technique, the better you get at controlling the light energy. “Practice makes permanent.”
