ON GETTING GROUNDED

Let your mind and spirit soar to true attainment, but be sure to also find a special place to plant your feet. The heavens call to us, but the best temples are anchored in the earth.

            Wednesday morning, I went to see S for a reflexology session. I brought her up to speed on my adventures with my spirit guide, See Do, and gave her a copy of the chronicle up to that point.

            During the session, she offered me some advice regarding dealing with a spirit guide. She said that it is possible to get too deeply entangled with the guide and that I should find ways to take a break and that I need to ground myself, everyday if possible. I reminded her of all the other activities in my life at the moment and told her about Susan and how helpful she’s been.

            I explained how Susan is a real grounding force in my life right now, especially with helping me to make better sense of the See Do information. We talked about how difficult it would be to handle some of this stuff without someone to share it with and talk to who is open to it and supportive. I explained how Susan is that person.

            I also told S that she should meet Susan and while there I bought Susan a reflexology session. I explained how I am beginning to see Susan as a woman who is actually made out of the Earth. Out of the Planet. That to touch her is to feel the spirit of the Earth in your hands. And that being with her is very grounding.

            I also asked S if while working with other people and taking them through guided visualizations, if others had met their spirit guides. She said that most people who she takes through the visualization do have a relatively profound emotional release, but that no, no one else she has worked with has met their spirit guide there.

            At the end of the session she walked me through a short grounding meditation. We both placed our feet flat and firm on the ground and she said to feel the earth beneath me. That I should feel my energy reaching down into the ground like the roots of a tree. I should feel these roots reaching out into the Earth and all the way down to the core.

            Then, starting at the top of our heads, we opened every chakra and felt it release some of its energy into the universe. Then closed each chakra and went down to the next. The Lotus, the Third Eye, the Throat, the Solar Plexus, the Orange and the Root Chakra. Then we breathed deeply and came back. She said I should do this once a day. It would help me to stay grounded as I deal with all these enormous energies now.

            I thanked her and returned home feeling at peace.
