Hello Honorable Shamans and Fellow Pagans. Here is the Earthways Shamanic Path Stepping Stone #2, “Get Grounded.” If you can practice this Stepping Stone in the spot you found in your front yard in Stepping Stone #1, go there. If that feels too “open” for you, find a spot where you can sit undisturbed for about 5 minutes.
You SHOULD always ground yourself before you start any magical or shamanic work. You can do this while sitting or while standing: Take a few breaths and close your eyes if you want to. In your mind’s eye, picture or think of, or see, or feel, or sense, a vine tendril growing up through the ground, through the floor (if you’re indoors,) and up your leg. It makes its way up to your abdomen and kind of “plugs into” your belly button. This is a connection to the Mother Earth. When you go on Spiritual Travels, you want to maintain this connection to the Earth at all times.
To get grounded after you complete your shamanic work or shamanic journey or magical activity:
- Touch the Earth, and see yourself sending excess energy to the Earth. We usually suggest it be for Healing Our Earth.
- Pack up your ritual equipment and put it away.
- Eat something, preferably something with protein in it. Many people swear that chocolate is grounding and I believe it!
And Let’s Share Our Peace with Our Earth.
