Merry Meet, my Magickal Ones. ✨

Grounding, in my opinion, is one of the most crucial skills that a witch should have in their arsenal.

Grounding is the act of pulling energy from the Earth and using it to stabilize yourself. This can be done as you are preparing for a ritual, when you are recovering from a ritual, or even when you’re upset & in need of a little boost.

So, let’s look at this from a scientific perspective real quick.

Say we have an object that is negatively charged. When we ground that object, we take that negative charge & we send it into the Earth, but instead of filling it back up with that same negative charge, we replace it with the positive charge instead.

Well, people work the same way.

Grounding is a way to balance our energy.

When we allow ourselves to become out of balance, it can sometimes be a very uncomfortable & sometimes unbearable feeling.

Have you ever experienced any of these?

  • A light-headed or floating feeling
  • Spacing out/difficulty focusing
  • Headaches/Dizziness
  • Forgetting/misplacing things
  • Feeling exhausted/insomnia
  • Nausea
  • Irritability
  • Feeling like your skin is crawling

I bet you thought maybe you were coming down with a cold or something, right?
Now, while that could be true in some cases, I can almost guarantee that it was due to your energy being out of whack.

There are many ways you are able to ground yourself!

  • Laughing
  • Eating & nourishing your body
  • Hydrating
  • Going for a walk
  • Light supersize
  • Cry it out
  • Using certain stones/crystals, like Hematite!
  • Walking barefoot in the grass

My personal favorite method of grounding, aside from being barefoot outside, is something called ‘rooting’.

How do you ‘root’ yourself?

First, find a comfortable position where you are firmly planted to the floor. Make sure you remember your meditation breathing! Now, whether it is your feet or your bum, imagine the part of your body that is planted to the floor growing roots. As you breathe, those roots continue to grow. Down further & further until you are connected to the center of Mother Earth herself. Begin to visualize your negative energy flowing out of your body & into the center of the Earth where it begins to be transformed into a glowing white light. Allow that same light to flow back through your roots until it reaches your body, filling you up with its goodness. Continue this visualization until you can feel your energy balancing out & bringing you back into a positive state of being.

You can do this exercise no matter where you are, or what you are doing! Anytime you feel out of balance, allow the Earth to take the bad & replace it with good. 

Until next time! 🌙
