Centering puts you in touch with your personal power, connecting your mental and spiritual bodies. To begin, stand in a quiet place with minimal distractions. Your feet should be shoulder width apart and your knees slightly bent. Or, if you prefer, you can be seated with your feet planted firmly on the ground and your back straight. Start by closing your eyes, and taking long, slow breaths.
Inhale deeply, breathing through the nose, filling the stomach and the chest with air. Then, exhale through the nose, slowly releasing and contracting the stomach.
Feel your body relax with each breath you take. Next, bring your consciousness down to the soles of your feet, feeling their strength and firmness. Visualize tree-like roots extending from the soles of your feet. With each breath you take, these roots grow far and wide, sinking deep into the Earth, through the bedrock, and into the healing soils below. Now that the negativity is drained out, let the energies of the Earth replenish you.
Feel the loving warmth as the energy sinks into you, allow it to move and flow throughout your body. Slowly raise your arms to the sky, and visualize the golden energy of the Universe flowing through your fingers, down your arms, and into your body. Feel the energies within you meld together as the healing energy of the Earth, the warmth of universal energy and your own energies mingle and become one.

Take a nice, deep breath, allowing yourself to accept these energies into your heart. When you are ready, lower your arms and feel the roots recede back into your feet. Take a few extra deep breaths, and open your eyes. Grounding and centering heightens your sensitivity to dis-balanced energies within yourself and the world around you.
Performing this meditation on a daily basis is a wonderfully simple way to commune with the Earth, while healing yourself with attentiveness and love. This is a great article concerning energy. These are your Chakras. We aren't going to go into what they are, or how they work right now. For now, just look at them.
Notice that they go up in spectral order, starting from red and going through orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo actually a lovely, bright blue-violet, but it's called indigo anyway and violet.
What is Grounding and Centering Yourself?
The first one is red and is at the base of your torso, near your anus. The second, orange one is about the width of both hands with fingers held together, and including your thumbs above that. In fact, in my experience, they tend to be pretty evenly spaced, and all about two hand-spans apart. The third is at the Solar Plexus yellow , the fourth at your heart green , the fifth at your throat blue , the sixth at your "third eye" indigo and the seventh at the crown of your head violet. You probably already know this; but you have more than one body.
The ones we are going to be concerned with here are your physical body, and your etheric body. Just assume for now that you have the body you are used to thinking of as "you," and you also have another one, larger and subtler, that has all the same parts and is around your physical body like two layers of an onion. Think of it as the blue outline in the picture. The point of the first part of the exercise, centering, is to line the two bodies up so that the energy can flow freely.

You do this sort of like zipping a zipper. Hold the picture firmly in your mind, and line up the two red dots, physical and etheric, front to back and side to side. As you visualize imagine them coming together, hear the note C in your head. The first note of the scale. Then carefully visualize all the others coming together as well, one by one, front to back and side to side until there is only one colored light.
As you do, go on up the scale; doe, ray, me, fa, so, la, tea, doe.

Yes, I know I'm spelling them wrong; but many people are used to hearing them, not seeing them written out, and this way they will sound like they should. If this is really hard for you, visualize it going the other way, starting with your crown chakra, the violet light on the top of your head, and going down your body and down the scale. But try to learn to do it the other way, because it makes grounding easier.
For the second part of the exercise, Grounding, it is absolutely essential that you be centered.

One thought on “Grounding and Centering”
See it coming down from the root chakra, and becoming a root itself. Feel it going through your chair, through the floor, through the foundation of the building, and into the ground. Feel the warm, fertile ground below you. And feel your root going deeper and deeper, down through the ground, down below the deepest well. There is a whole core of energy down there. The core of the planet is full of pure, clean, loving energy; and the Earth means her children to use it.
So draw that energy up your root now, up through the ground, through the soil, through the foundation, and the floor, and the chair, and into your body. Feel that pure clean energy coming into your body.
