“Grounding” – such a catch-all word in the world of alternative healing, new age practices, meditation, yoga, you name it.  But what does it actually mean for you?  What am I grounding? What am I grounding to?  Why do I need to do this?  I have been reminded lately of how important this is.  I have been in situations where grounding is critical, while practicing Reiki, and the other practitioners did not know to ground, protect, and clear after providing a session.  Whether you are a Light Worker or just beginning your meditation practice, grounding is critical to your wellbeing.  Let’s look at a key part of the process that will help you immensely.

We can look at it from the perspective of an Electrician wiring a house:

“The term ‘ground’ refers to a connection to the earth, which acts as a reservoir of charge… provides a conducting path to the earth which is independent of the normal current-carrying path… it is connected to the electrical neutral within the breaker box…in case of an electrical fault (power surges/high voltage flow)… This protects against electric shock.  The ground wire also needs to be tied back to the electrical neutral … It then becomes part of the overall flow, which will produce a high enough fault current to trip the breaker… This is called bonding.”    (Borrowed from hyperphysics.com)

We can translate that this way:

We are the house, our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of ourselves are the appliances, and our Divine Spark within our Heart Center is the electrical neutral within breaker box. Our Central Channel is the “normal current-carrying path” where our natural flow of energy, our Chi, keeping us going.  Right through the center of our Central Channel is our grounding wire!  When we ground to the earth, we tap into a reservoir where we can deposit excess energy, i.e. grounding.  If we don’t our circuits connected to our Central Channel can become overloaded.  This includes our chakras, our heart center, our intuition, even our nervous system.  This happens when spikes in energy flow are brought into or placed in our Central Channel. This comes from relationships, situations, stressful events, and just every day life.

THIS IS KEY EVERYONE. The description above goes on to say we also need to bond. GroundingAndBondingImage This is done by bringing the grounding wire back into the electrical neutral, or our Divine Spark. So once we ground down into Mother Earth through the open flow of energy within our Central Channel, we then draw her ever-loving energy back into our Central Channel to ensure our breaker box, or Heart Center, is connected to our Divine Spark and therefore protected against a large electrical shock. We become connected and bonded with Earth’s energy, protecting us.

Here’s another way to think of this.  You have the clothes dryer going (mental chatter), all the lights on in the house (a to do list and responsibility list a mile long), and then someone turns on the hair dryer (you get in an argument with a loved one).  If the circuitry within the house (your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual circuitry) is not properly grounded and bonded (sent between our Divine Spark to and from Mother Earth), the circuit breaker (heart center) trips and all goes dark (emotional upset, physical upset, all the way to illnesses).  You then have to manually open the breaker box and restart things (doctors, energy work, recovery time, etc.).  If tripping the circuit breaker fails, we can end up with an electrical house fire (chronic illness, disease, etc.).

So now what?  Think of this as giving and receiving, Yin and Yang, the Infinity symbol moving your energy.  You ground to let go of excess energy, you bond to ensure you have a clean source coming back in.  If you are already doing this in your grounding exercises, keep it up and ensure your circuits are grounded and bonded.  Pay special attention to the drawing back up of energy from Mother Earth, bringing it back down from Father Sky, asking God to bring blessings upon you when you pray, asking the Angels for loving support sent to you.

If your practice, for example, talks about sending energy like roots down into the earth, perfect.  Now add in that the roots soak up Mother Earth’s energy to restore balance.  After all, that is what root are for.  Some people like to “ground up”, by connecting to the sky, sun, or moon.  Fantastic.  Just remember that you are giving and receiving.  We breathe out carbon dioxide in order to make room for oxygen to come in.  Plants, trees, flowers, use the carbon dioxide we give off to turn into oxygen, all with the help of the sun.  My thought is even the sun needs to bond, even Mother Earth needs to bond – our asking for help and acknowledging then, giving them joy, laughter, and gratitude are what they get in return.  Give and Receive, Yin and Yang, the constant flow of energy back and forth for…infinity

Reiki decreases pain and anxiety in cancer patients

Here is a recent article on a study done to see how pain levels are helped by yoga, massage, and reiki published in Massage Magazine.  The results are very positive.  Massage Magazine has one of the largest audiences for the world of massage and integrative therapies.hand_indigo_dark1

While this study is not a scientific, clinical data study, it looked at 50 patients for each modality of massage, yoga, and reiki.  That is 150 responses over time rating their pain level while active cancer patients.  I have and do volunteer for similar programs at cancer centers that provide reiki to patients (acupuncture and massage as well).  It mirrors the results we see daily from our patients.  We see a drop in pain and anxiety, and an increase in a sense of well-being in the majority of people who come to us, free of charge while receiving cancer treatments.

Touch.  Such a simple thing and so vitally important to our health and well-being.  We show affection through it, we offer comfort through it, and we provide healing through it.  When someone becomes sick, with a serious ailment, such as cancer, touch takes on a whole new meaning.  All of a sudden people seem afraid to touch you, afraid to hurt you with the embrace of a hug.  Some even seem to be borderline repelled by the thought.

Now imagine being that cancer patient and coming into an environment where you are received with open arms, hugged, smiled at, and doted over.  You take off your shoes, and yes, even your wig or hat, not worrying about how you look, and you lay down on a table under a blanket.  Soothing music plays, and you even picked out your own personal essential oil scent to bring with you to the room.  The lights dim and one of two Reiki Practitioners lull you into a state of complete rest and peace through visualizing your body sinking into the table and relaxing each muscle.

Then, what you are apprehensive of and crave at the same time happens.  Two sets of hands are gently placed on your head and feet.  They move in sync, moving and placing their hands on your arms, torso, and legs.  You feel warmth, peace.  You forget your hair loss, your port in your chest, your next chemo appointment, and just settle in and be.  You are pretty sure that by the time they ask you to come back to the present moment you could just fall asleep and stay that way for hours, something that does not always come easy with the racing mind and to-do lists.

The Reiki Practitioners wish this too, but bringing their patient back to the present and seeing them happy and peaceful makes it even more worth their while.  Reiki practitioners get so much out of the sessions as well, knowing they are providing this service and being able to give a sense of respite for even this 45 minutes.  Often times patients are seen right before they go in for chemo or radiation treatment, so receiving these sessions is even more important to their overall well-being.

Reiki is an energy healing that originated in Japan.  It incorporates the idea that we can, through a process similar to Tai Chi, help to support our body systems on all levels: body, mind, and spirit.  Reiki comes from two words Rei and Ki, and although hard to translate directly, together mean “Highly or Purely Guided Energy to Increase Life Force”.  Reiki Practitioners, through training and an “attunement”, are able to lay hands on (or slightly above the body), creating a strong connection to this flow of energy for themselves and others. Patients, at the very least, report feeling relaxed and at peace.  This alone helps facilitate healing.

What I say to people who only rely on clinical studies for answers is this.  Even if there is not much scientific proof yet to show the health benefits of reiki, acupuncture, and similar healing modalities, the significant amount of positive anecdotal evidence is clear.  Both from the side of the practitioner and the patient.  We see it every day.


I AM THE WORD – Recommended Reading

I just finished the first book in the channeled series my Paul Selig.  iamthewordI can honestly say it has changed my life.  Truly.  “I AM THE WORD” does not say a whole lot of new things that mystics, new age teachers, Jesus, spiritual teachers, and the like have said.  It is the way they say it that really struck a cord with me.  A cord that literally changed my resonance to a higher frequency.

It both accepts my Christian upbringing and allows me my own truth that I feel there is more, less limiting, and all encompassing ways to be in Christ’s Light than just religion alone.  To be clear, it is not a religious book.  It is not about Christianity, but it does talk of God and Christ.  God and Christ in the sense that The Creator is PURE LOVE AND LIGHT, which transcends any one set of beliefs. It does hold true with Jesus’s teachings about being of Divine Light.  And so much more.

I have ordered books 2 and 3, and already have the fourth book called “The Book of Mastery” which starts a new trilogy.  But I decided if they were written in a particular order I would read them that way.

It is not always easy reading, and other times I read and read and read.  I just ask that you pick it up and read with an open mind and heart.

“The (collective) Christ within you is a frequency that is aligned within the heart center and it glows like a flame and it brings to it that vibration and frequency that co-resonates with it.  And that which it brings to co-resonance is The Creator.  The Creator is Light…. Everything is a frequency of Light.  This book is about claiming the truth of who you are in light.  And the light is the one thing that is shared by ALL.  To be an aspect of the Christ embodied simply means to be yourself in full realization of your perfect frequency, willingness to be of service, your availability, and as a piece of God in Action.” (paraphrased without changing any of their actual words.)

Enjoy and I invite you to say YES to this journey.
