Grounding and Centreing By Amanda Roberts; www.bodykarm.com
Grounding and centreing are key to being able to be in rhythm with your life so it flows smoothly. This leads onto another things without it for example turning into chaos or overwhelming you.
It is also important if you want to do any psychic or mediumship development you ensure that the information you are receiving is delivered it in a calm, compassionate and coherent manner.
Grounding and centring are two separate things and a person can be grounded and not centered and vice versa.
In order to look at the differences more closely I shall draw up a table and include words that students have come up with in an exercise we have done to look at these differences and to help to really understand them.
|Connected with earth energy
Survival is easy
Owning your body
Being physically present in the world
Being aware of body space / spatial
Being in the now / present moment
Connection to one self
Know who you are
|Physical level – inhabiting the physical
|Psychological level – being mentally
and emotionally present.
|Desirable but not necessary elements|
Emotionally and spiritually whole and
Heart and mind centred – desirable
but not necessary
|Not Grounded||Not Centred|
Ego out of balance
Grounding – being connected to the earth and being solid and present. People find you easy to be with, to feel safe with and to trust as you are very much in the physical world; you inhabit your physical being and are comfortable with this.
Centreing – being in the here and now and in the moment. All of your energies are gathered together into one place and you are focused, connected and have clarity. You are mentally and emotionally present and can focus and concentrate on what is at hand.
Benefits – when we are grounded and centred we start to be in rhythm with our life and it flows easier – synchronicity starts to occur.
We are focused, calmer, harmonious and find situations within our life easier to deal with.
People around us feel safer when they are with us. You can keep your attention on the person you are with or the task at hand. You have clarity, a sense of purpose and are psychologically at ease with yourself and your physical being.
When people are not centred they can be very ‘scattered, find it hard to complete tasks and do not give us their undivided attention.
People can be centred and ungrounded which means they can have excellent focus and concentration but will not appear very solid or safe and can appear a bit fragile, invisible, ethereal or ‘other worldly’.
If people are grounded but not centred they can appear solid and dependable but scattered, with poor focus and concentration in completing tasks. They will not appear to be living in the moment but moving between past, present and the future, and can appear chaotic.
Many of us vary in percentages between the two so we could be 30% grounded and 75% centred. These two figures are independent of each other and do not add to 100%. Ideally you would be 100% grounded and centred.
Those of us attracted to spiritual and psychic work can often struggle with grounding but it is vital with the work that we do and is the best form of protection that we have.
