Grounding: What It Is, benefits and how to

It’s now, in these crazy times that we need to ground ourselves and reconnect even more so. We can all benefit from taking a moment to focus on ourselves and our connection with Mother Earth.

Grounding for me is hanging out amongst the trees and nature, going outside and breathing fresh air or simply taking my shoes off and stepping on the grass in the backyard.

When you’re ungrounded, you feel uneasy, restless, anxious, light-headed, and that’s just to name a few. Grounding reduces stress and increase immunity & connects us to the healing energies that Mother Earth freely offers all of us. It helps you feel calm, centred, peaceful and clear-minded.

We need to reconnect & balance ourselves first before we can help others do the same. Learning to ground yourself becomes easier with practice, the more you do it, the easier it gets, and the stronger your connection feels with Mother Earth.


How to get started

Visualisation meditation is one of the easiest ways to ground and is simpler than most people think. You can really do a visualisation meditation anywhere, just as long as it’s quiet and you won’t be interrupted.

The steps below are an excellent introduction on how to ground yourself.  Ensure you’re somewhere where you can relax into this process and let go. 


  1. Take three deep breaths and let them out slowly. On the last exhale, imagine a rainbow coming from above entering your body through the top of your head. (You can also visualise the rainbow as another colour like; gold, white, blue, violet, whatever colour resonates with you)
  2. Visualise the rainbow cascading through your entire body, from your head to your neck, heart, stomach, belly, thighs, legs, all the way to down to your feet.
  3. Imagine the rainbow exiting out of the soles of your feet and into Mother Earth. Feel your feet sink into the ground and visualise Mother Earth’s hand holding your feet gently.
  4. Now imagine the rainbow that has exited out from the soles of your feet extend down into the ground like tree roots. They branch off and dig deeper, far into the earth below. As you breathe in, feel your connection with Mother Earth.
  5. Now visualise the rainbow travel back up from your tree roots, re-entering your body through soles of your feet. Let it travel back up your legs, thighs, hips, belly, stomach, and into your heart.
  6. Inhale and feel your heart swell with unconditional love. When you feel ready, place your hands in a prayer position and thank Mother Earth for her love.


We recommend you do this visualisation meditation at a few times per week and work your way up to once a day. This practice should only take you five or 10 minutes to do and can be added to your morning routine.


Peace! Love! & Good Vibes!
