Finding your Center - Connecting with your own Source of Support

Updated: Nov 12, 2023

Grounding–Work on the Feet.

Worry and fear usually have some involvement with the root centre (first chakra), so it's always good to work with it to help ground and restore feelings of safety and security. Working with the brow centre is also important. Worried and fearful thinking is not clear thinking. When our safety and security are threatened it intensifies the upward flow of energy in the body and the downward flow of grounding energy is inhibited. Supporting the sixth chakra helps us to get perspective and think more clearly.

Being energetically grounded orients us to time and space and connects us to the here and now. It brings us into the present moment and into our bodies. Physically this happens through our feet and legs when we create a downward current and any excess energy discharged is 'grounded-out' by the earth's conductive surface. Work on the feet to Ground. Do ankle rotations; flexion and extensions, pressing heels into the floor while sitting or standing helps push energy through the body where it can be released. Bring your awareness into your feet as you walk, noticing how your feet feel in your shoes, or against the surface you are walking on.

Another great grounding self-care tool is an acupressure ball that is firm but has a bit of give. I use the Backhealer Ball (the green ball - Upper & Lower Back or red ball- Tendon & Fascia shown in image) and roll it under my barefoot on a yoga sticky mat to open up the muscles on the feet.

Balancing and harmonizing all the energy centres is certainly great for raising energetic coherence to a higher level so that the lower-vibration energy of worry and fear dissolve." Backhealer balls and Yoga Strap Set
