As the days continue, the messages of Self Love are still in motion. Where does one start with Self Love? Grounding.
Do you have those days where you just feel off for no apparent reason? Well you may not think there’s no reason but it’s actually an energy loss. Come listen to how I got my energy back after I didn’t realize it was gone!
You already heard how important it is to be grounded. If you haven’t or want to know a little more about it, you can read my post on how to ground here.
Meanwhile, grab some of your favorite crystals, leave your phone at home or IF you HAVE to bring it, silence it and put it in your pocket. Follow me.
In case you didn’t know, walking in the woods or anywhere you like, is great for grounding. Grounding is oh so important in the metaphysical world and it’s good to ground daily or more if you want. Plus it’s good exercise for those of us who spend way to much time behind a computer.
Anyway, back to the woods. I was by myself in awe of the sights and sounds. I noticed how green the moss was since we recently got a lot of rain, it was lively and bright.
I loved how the leaves crunched as I walked on them. It sounded like potato chips and I smiled.
I heard rustling in the woods thinking that maybe I’d see some deer but came to realize it was several squirrels and birds startled that I was there in their wonderland.
Water in the creek flowed with vigor again from all the recent rain we had. The water had a beautiful green hue to it and when the sun hit it just right it looked like a magic potion.
I was clearly connected to the beauty of Nature. We became one.
I said to myself how lucky I am to be able to enjoy the beauty that Nature has to offer. I was just in the zone.
When I mentioned beauty to myself, it made me think of Archangel Jophiel who’s name translates to Beauty of God. Then it happened.
The thought was in my head for a split second – Archangel Jophiel and beauty then it hit me – literally hit me. A yellow butterfly came out of no where and beaned me in the face! I was so stunned not only that I got hit in the face by a butterfly but a very specific butterfly. A yellow one.
Why is that so momentous? Because of it’s color. Yellow.
Archangel Jophiel who I just summoned by thinking of her (and yes, that’s all you have to do to catch the attention of an Angel) made herself known to me by showing me that yellow butterfly.
Just a little background of Jophiel. Her name translates to the Beauty of God and she oversees the Solar Plexus. Guess what color the Solar Plexus is?
Yellow 🙂 💛
I never knew about grounding until I took a Reiki class and learned about it. I didn’t know you had to do it until my head would get all fluttery or I’d just be “out there” in one of my “spooky” moments or just get so overwhelmed with my experiences that I’d get a little floaty. This is why you have to ground yourself, to connect to Mother Earth and keep your self strong and planted solidly on this earth.
When should you ground yourself?
Ok. So you get the picture right? Simply put, sometimes it’s the feeling you get after a glass or two of wine, just a little floaty.
How do I ground myself?
Grounding is different for everyone and I’ve tried many different techniques. Some of my friends get very involved with their grounding procedure but for me, I just need a quick visual and set the intention in my mind, and it’s done. This is what I do.
The grass around me is green and full of life. This is a healthy tree, a beautiful image and you’re welcome to use it when you need to ground yourself.
