Earthquakes, Earth Energy, Grounding and the 1st Chakra

Earth Energy and GroundingThe earth is in a big growth period at the moment and the energy is very stirred up. You may be finding it difficult, if not near impossible, to ground, center and feel safe. The earthquakes going on around the world in recent days are indicators of a shift and release of energy.

Each of us has a connection with the earth from our first chakra. Located at the base of the spine, this energy center helps us feel safe among other things. The earth has changed and therefore our grounding must shift and change to make our first chakra and body feel safe.

If you’ve felt a bit panicky or out of whack you may be feeling the effects of your connection with the earth if you haven’t checked in with yourself in a while. Also, when the internal energy of the earth is stirred up you might be bringing in too much earth energy for your body to handle.

It is time to re-establish our connection with the earth and turn down how much earth energy we bring in so we are in alignment and present time with the earth. The Vernal Equinox is quickly approaching and it’s important to embrace and welcome our internal growth in addition to watching the earth Spring to life after a long cold winter.


Take a deep breath and bring your attention to rest behind your eyes in the center of your head. Imagine you are sitting there in the middle of a golden light. From that place notice the base of your spine where your first chakra is located. Send a simple hello from the center of your head to the base of your spine. Breathe into the warmth of the golden light as you do this. Now from an effortless place, create a connection or line of energy from the base of your spine to the center of the earth.

You may want to use an image of a tree rooted deeply into the ground. Now imagine yourself connecting with the calm, nurturing center of the planet. Feel Mother Earth’s warm embrace. Allow Mother Earth to comfort you with that connection. Breathe deeply and slowly release any stress or anxiety you’re holding on to.

Continue to acknowledge your new connection with the earth as you breathe and release. Notice if you’re feeling different with this new connection. If you’re feeling uncomfortable at any point, just breathe into it and allow whatever it is to be released. Just breathe and release.

Turn Your Earth Energy Down

Although you have established a connection with the earth to feel safe and release, you are bringing in earth energy through your feet. If you feel “buzzy” or overwhelmed it’s a good time to notice your feet connected to the ground. Set your intent to only bring in as much earth energy as you need. You may need more, you may need less so just set an overall intent to bring in as much as you need and once again notice how you’re feeling.

Gold Suns

Now that you’ve re-established your connection with the earth, released and set your intent to bring in only as much earth energy as you need, it’s time to fill up! Imagine a beautiful, joyful golden sun above your head. Bring that golden sun right in through the top of your head with the intent of filling up anywhere you released energy. You can create and bring in as many golden suns as you need or want. Fill up until you’re overflowing and bathed in golden light.

Just as you are growing and changing so too is the earth. There will be more earthquakes and weather patterns will continue to change. We are entering into an era where powerful shifts will be coming more often and if you know how to ground and re-new your connection you will be infinitely more comfortable.

The best thing about grounding is you can do it anywhere, at any time to change how you feel and bring a sense of safety to your body. Why not give it a try? ~Shine Your Light Debbie

A Lesson on Letting Go

Let go!

The words ‘letting go’ are thrown about as if it’s an easy thing to do. Letting go is never easy but if you shift your perspective and take time to first clear the energy that might be holding it there the process becomes a lot easier!

Letting go doesn’t mean wiping it clean from your memory banks. It is about is de-energizing an experience and taking back your energy from something you’ve given it up to.  Letting go means freedom for you and whatever (whomever) you’ve held on to. You’ve heard of smothering? Well, holding on tightly feels that way so at the very least breathe!

If you are holding on to a picture or energy, all your energy  is in the “holding on” and you are right in the middle of it. Not letting go takes your valuable energy away from other things like creating. It also takes up space which could be used for bringing in something wonderful. Here are a few tips for letting go…

Clear the effort: If you find yourself in effort “trying” to let go remember there’s a bigger picture. What does the situation represent? What are you or did you learn from it? Is holding on comforting because it’s so familiar? Don’t worry about what you’re actually trying to let go of. Create the intention of letting go of the EFFORT.

Say hello to fear: Let’s face it there’s fear in letting go so while in meditation identify what you are afraid of if you let go. Fear comes up when you don’t feel safe. Grounding & centering brings you into present time and makes your body safe. It also helps to find neutrality; Let go of the wanting to know why or why not.

Clear the resistance: It is common to resist an energy picture or difficult memory. If you find yourself resisting letting go of something in particular, don’t concern yourself with whatever it is. Let go of the resistance. Resistance acts a bit like glue and what you resist persists!

It might not be YOUR energy: If you find yourself trying to solve or fix an energy and it seems impossible to clear no matter what you do, it’s not YOUR energy. You can’t solve or fix energy in your space. Your energy feels good to you. It is comforting and familiar. Once you recognize an energy isn’t yours shift your focus and attention back to you. Ground and simply allow anything that isn’t you to move out.

Ask for help: There is a tendency to isolate when your inner world is in turmoil. This is precisely the time to get out there and make things real. Don’t sit at home swimming in it! Take a meditation class, get an energy healing or get a reading! (I know shameless plug 🙂 )

These are only a few of the things you can do to help in the process of letting go. There is a big bright world of possibilities in both your inner and outer world to experience so GROUND, BREATHE & LET GO of the small piece your holding on to!~Shine Your Light Debbie
