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

In light of recent planetary events I wanted to take a moment to say HELLO!  The winds of change are blowing and there is anticipation in the very air we breath! The seasons are changing and in many parts of the world we are anticipating the coming of spring. 

Energy is clearing on our lovely planet and the earth is indeed in a “growth period.” I’ve talked about the “shift” that’s happening in prior blogs and not only are we in the middle of it but it IS accelerating even more so!

So, in light of all these events, how have you been feeling lately? Frankly I’ve been feeling a bit “off” in the last few weeks. Life for many of the people I’ve spoken to (or given readings to) over the last few weeks IS accelerating and bodies are not quite feeling comfortable.

Personally I have found myself trying to put the brakes on! Slow down! You’re moving to fast….! And if it’s not your life doing it, it may seem as if things are moving along for others around you very rapidly. 🙂

Well dear ones, if you’ve been feeling slightly “off”, say hello to the great planet earth! A few weeks ago the earthquake in Chile was strong enough to shift the earth’s axis! According to NASA the earth is spinning faster and the day got shorter by 1.26 millionths of a second.  

While this might not seem like a big deal, check again! When you “ground” you ground yourself to the earth!  At some level, whether consciously or unconsciously you are connected to the energy of the earth and when it makes a change it’s time for you to UPDATE your connection!

Grounding is YOUR very own personal connection to the earth and it is something that you can do with awareness. It makes your body safe and allows for release of those energies that are not inherently YOU.

You may pick up energies from others as you go about your daily life and grounding is a safe way to release. As you can imagine if you have not updated your connection with the earth with its monumental changes, your physical body may not be feeling very comfortable.

Why not take a moment right now to notice of how your body is feeling. Do things feel out of control more so than usual? Have you been eating more or less than normal? Queasy stomach or dizzy?

Do you just want to stop the ferris wheel of life and sleep for hours? Are people around you or are you seemingly BUZZING? Are you feeling a bit spacey or like things are surreal.

Maybe you aren’t sleeping well…or at all. You might be feeling stuck or having difficulty letting go. It could also very well be that you are manifesting & creating at light speed and in all that excitement it might be a wonderful time to come back to earth (so to speak) and enjoy it! 🙂  No matter how you are feeling, just take notice for a moment.

Now that you’ve checked in with your body it’s time to check in with the earth! Are you aware of your connection? Have you updated it recently? If you already know how to ground that’s great! If not, intent goes a long way!

Check in with the earth and see how it’s doing. Then use your fabulous imagination to picture YOU connected from the base of your spine to the center of the planet. Yes, it is as simple as using your imagination!

Now notice what that feels like! You don’t need to get caught up in the ‘how’ or the ‘distance’; Just BE connected and allow your grounding to do its job! 🙂

Of course, there’s a bit more to it than what I just walked you through but wasn’t that easy for a start? Grounding is one of the most powerful, yet simple, techniques you can use in your daily life.

Right now with all that is happening on the planet, it’s more important than ever to care for yourself at every level. MIND, BODY, SPIRIT & SOUL. 

Being grounded, feeling safe and turning your attention within IS caring for YOU. When you have conscious awareness of your body connected to the earth you can let go of the “stuff” and bring more of YOU in.

In this blog I gave you some simple guidance on grounding. BUT if you are interested in updating your grounding or learning this very simple tool for the first time, I will be offering a FREE 45 minute guided meditation teleseminar on Sunday March 21st at 4PM CST!

Teleconference phone number and access code details will be posted on the sidebar under  “UPCOMING EVENTS”  and on Facebook ‘Clairvoyant Readings by Debra’ Events.

I hope you will join me for the teleseminar! In the meanwhile, check in with YOU, all that you ARE and all you are BECOMING! Shine your light~Debbie
