A Simple Grounding Exercise

A Simple Grounding Exercise

Life can be overcharging and full on at times and not to mention it can often frazzle us. We carry energies from others that we come into contact with. There are methods to destress and release these overwhelming feelings and it can come in the form of physical exercise, for example, if we do a contact sport like boxing, when training you get to hit something and that impact is a release of energy. It can work wonders. Any form of physical exercise can really take us out of that environment and give our body a release of the stored energies we hold.

When it comes to releasing emotional energies that overwhelm us, I think the best method of exercise is grounding exercises.

First I’d like to explain what grounding means, grounding is when you connect with the earth and any negative energies that are held within us can be dispelled into the earth. In the spiritual aspect, it means letting go of toxins and negative energies that may have built up over time. When doing the grounding work you can feel more aligned with your true self.

What I’ve learnt during my training is that we are connected to mother earth and we have a grounding cord that connects to and holds the soul and spirit in this incarnation in this life. The amazing thing about this cord is that you can use this grounding cord to astral travel (I have yet to experience this).

Grounding work can help flow negative energy down from you to the earth and disperse it into the ground.

One grounding work that I often do when I feel overwhelmed or blocked in some way. This is something I like to do at the end of every evening just before I go to bed. It can be done anytime and whenever you feel like you need to do this. This is also a great way of healing and healing with crystals. I’d love to share this practice with you.



Grounding exercise

Take a suitable grounding crystal or two, I will list some grounding crystals at the bottom. 

  1. Stand with bare feet on the floor, or in the grass, and keep your arms akimbo (like a Superman pose).
  2. Hold the crystal in your hands. If you’re using one crystal, hold it in your right hand.
  3. Close your eyes, take a moment for yourself. Take a few deep breaths, and now mentally visualise the toxic energy flowing down towards your feet and into the earth.
  4. Hold this position for about five minutes or till you feel that bit lighter.

This is a simple grounding exercise that can be done anywhere, the reason I like to do it at the end of the day is that we can deload and release this overwhelming energy and go to bed with a lighter feeling.

Why not give it a try? It only takes five minutes.


Grounding crystals


The wonderful earth stone, very strong grounding stone and agate protect your aura. A particular favourite of mine is Moss Agate, there is something about the earth's energy it gives, it truly makes you connect to your roots.


It removes blockages and protects from unwanted influences.


It is a fantastic stone that absorbs excess energy. Very grounding and protected. This is a great all-around supportive stone. 

Smoky Quartz

It can transmit negative to positive. It’s a beautiful crystal that is amazing for grounding and centring.


Grounding is the centre of us, it makes us feel balanced and aligned. Once we feel grounded I believe our possibilities are endless.

Love and light
