When you are grounded, you are fully in your body! Your energy feels very centered and present within your physical body when you are grounded. You are functioning in the now, rather than your energy being caught in the past or worried about the future. When you are well grounded, feelings of anxiety, hurry and scattered energy disappear. You feel aware and present.
But when you are not grounded it is just the opposite! You can feel as though your thoughts are all over the place, your anxious about everything, and you let anxiety take over! you may be caught up in day dreams, or your temper and attitude can get the best of you.
So what can you do to get grounded?
Well, first of all if your able to you can go barefoot on the earth! This is also called Earthing. You can sit with your back to a tree, place your hands on the trunk of a tree, hands in the earth. Sitting next to running water, a river, creek, or the ocean are all great ways to ground your self. If your not able to do any of those you can sit comfortably either on the floor, earth or in a chair with your feet planted flat on the ground and imagine roots growing from your feet deep into the center of the earth. Now imagine the energy exchange between you and the earth. Stay there as long as you feel you need too.
This is just a small sliver of grounding and there is so so much more but this should help get you started.
