A grounding meditation: recharge yourself with Mother Earth and give it right back

Posted by Christina Zipperlen on

Having existed in this world in the last few years meant having subscribed to wobbly, bumpy and often times weird tides of life, whether we wanted it or not. Collective changes, personal challenges, triggers and displaced nervous systems were felt and experienced on many levels. But there was also a lot of positive outcome. It is what life does. The good and the bad go hand in hand. And this gives us the power of choice. Even in those moments where it didn’t feel like it.

Earth day is this month

– on April 22nd. It is a day that reminds us of our collective responsibility towards resources - the Earth’s and ours as humans. Earth Day is not just about planting trees, cleaning up beaches, or reducing carbon emissions. It's also about fostering a deeper connection with nature and recognizing our place within the intricate web of life. Similarly, being grounded in oneself involves finding stability and balance amidst the chaos of modern life. Just as we strive to nurture the Earth, we must also cultivate our inner landscapes to promote harmony and resilience.

Remedy can be found in anything not constructed, real, authentic and whole. It can be found in that which holds and carries us – our Earth. Mother Earth. The one that births us, nourishes us, and takes us back when our time is over. There is a deep, indisputable connection to Mother Earth. It is in this anchor that runs through us, that we can find back to our groundedness and clarity.

Why we ground

In our fast-paced, technology-driven society, it's easy to feel disconnected from both ourselves and the natural world. We often find ourselves overwhelmed by stress, anxiety, and a constant barrage of information. This disconnection can lead to feelings of disorientation, discontent, and even environmental apathy. To counteract this, we must actively seek ways to ground ourselves—physically, mentally, and spiritually.

To get through our challenges and become loving with all that is, it matters to embrace the highest highs and lowest lows of life. There is a place deep within us that is unharmed, unchanged, untouched, unimpressed by life and reflects all that we are. This is the part we want to live from. This is why we forge the connection between our human self and the Earth. And this is what we call grounding.

Grounding does not solve the problem that is contributing to our unpleasant experiences, but it does provide a temporary way to gain control over our feelings and prevent things from getting worse. When we are grounded we are able to accept and let go of the momentary challenging moments, we feel more at peace with our authentic selves and can act from this place.

A grounding meditation

One powerful tool for achieving inner grounding is through the practice of a grounding meditation.

This ancient technique – a so called ‘Red Bindu’ meditation – encourages us to anchor ourselves in the present moment, reconnect with our bodies, and charge ourselves with the energy of the Earth. Through mindfulness and intentional stillness, we can cultivate a sense of calm and stability that transcends the chaos of everyday life.

Earth Day is coming soon

Earth Day is a day that celebrates and honors our planet. It brings light to the efforts and the achievements of the global environmental movement and raises awareness of the need to protect Mother Earth’s resources for future generations to come. The intention is to educate, diversify and activate. Earth Day creates visibility for projects and initiatives that support our resources and our future.

Earth Day serves as a reminder of our collective responsibility to protect and preserve the environment for future generations. Yet, amidst our efforts to care for the Earth, it's equally important to nurture our inner selves. Grounding, both in a literal and metaphorical sense, can play a vital role in our personal well-being and our commitment to sustainability.

Powerful pieces to ground

Our ground is to be found in the energy of Ganesha. According to Hindu belief, he represents our root and connection to the Earth. His energy is placed in our womb space, our root. When we call upon the Red Bindu, we call upon an aspect of Ganesha.
