Grounding techniques for Empaths

We came here to share our light with the world, but when we are feeling overwhelmed and not in the driver’s seat of our own reality, chaotic energies tend escalate quickly, throwing us for a loop. But that’s okay because there are simple techniques we can implement to bring us back down to Earth, techniques that allow us to come back to center, re-balance and ground ourselves just as quickly as they escalated.

When we are at home, in our own sacred sanctuaries, our empathic antennas are constantly being switched on, picking up emotional energy from the outside world. Because of this, we can become easily drained, consumed with lethargy and distracted.

The more that I have embodied being The Observer, the easier it has become to witness these chaotic energies come and go. When we attach ourselves to the energies, make them about us, is when they truly escalate within our being. To sense when a programming energy is presenting itself to be released, to know that’s not about you, so that you are able to witness it, recieve its message and allow it to pass, a new level of power and confidence cultivates within you.

Every Empath is unique and what works powerfully for one, may not work as efficiently for another. However our best way to stay grounded, for any Empath is to create a resilient, energetically balanced, healthy body with a tranquil mind and a strong high-vibrational energy field.

🗝️ Water: Our bodies is made up of 75% water and some body tissue has as much as 95%
so it should come as no surprise that water is way up there on the grounding scale.

Alkaline water puts our bodies in optimum healing mode! Witness any stress dissolve away as you fill your body with its love.

Insufficient daily amounts of water definitely creates struggle within our bodies, not only the functioning of the energetic and physical body but our all over general mood and well-being struggles.

Water is a powerful protector for Empaths, we need A LOT of it, both inside and outside of our bodies. Water washes away more than just dirt, it actually has the power to cleanse the energetic body and clear negativity.

Any time I have a trying experience, I will take a shower… slow down embrace yourself sensually, reconnect with your divine essence. Witness the beads of water roll down your gorgeous body.

Water has an magical uplifting and clearing effect about it. I love to witness the energy dissolve from my being and watch it go down the drain. 

🗝️ Diet: One of the best things an Empath can do, is add nutrient-dense foods to their diet. I actually drink some right out of the gate, wake up go for a walk and then drink as many nutrient rich fruits and veggies as I can. I continue to eat them throughout the day as well but I love starting my day with a healthy start.

Most importantly, we want to remove any drug-like foods, unnatural sugars, processed dairy and fried food. Wheat is one of the worst offenders in our modern society. Organic whole grains, quinoa, wild rice, sweet potatoes are what our bodies prefer.

Wheat acts like a drug in the body. Empaths react negatively to drug-like foods because we are so highly sensitive. Sensitively attuned to all frequencies of vibration. Everything around us is energy vibrating at different frequencies, including our food. The faster the vibration, the higher the frequency.

Empaths are negatively affected by anything of a low vibration. Man made drugs and alcohol are low vibrational, therefore consuming either, will bring us down extremely fast!

🗝️ Bath Salt: I recommend bath salt to everyone, it provides so many healing uses, it’s magical! Not only is it a great medicinal healer, it’s also extremely purifying. Bath salt has the power to draw out and dissolve negative energies from our emotional and physical body.

This is especially helpful when our day includes interacting with others, picking up on other peoples stressed or anxious energies.

They even make infused bath salts or you can add your own essential Oils,
which I love to do!

🗝️ Smudge: Smudging helps clear your Empath energy field of unwanted energies, while simultaneously offering incredible protection. Choosing the product you would like to smudge with, this absolutely up to you.

When smudging yourself:
• Its recommended to smudge during the day.
• Make sure that there is a moving breeze or air flow
• Personal affirmations while smudging are great for setting the intentions of the clear
• Work in a methodical direction (head to feet) (feet to head)

When smudging a room:
• Start in the far corner of the room or the house,
start at the baseboards and work your way up
• Want to get in all the cracks and crevices
• The more smoke there is, the more negative energy that’s being smudged away.

🗝️ Exercise: For the most part our society turns to exercise for weight loss and a toned body. However exercise offers so much more than that, especially for an Empath. It releases pent-up emotions, removes impurities, enhances and uplifts our mood, it energizes, increases happiness, while building a powerful energy field, and is grounding!

When it comes to exercise I recommend to do what you love! The more fun you have, the more often your likely to do it. Empath’s typically don’t enjoy rigidity or routines. Get the music bumpin, shake that booty, dance, stretch, shake your cares away, anyway you feel called to.

🗝️ Meditation: Meditation is by far my favorite and my go-to. Personally, I enjoy guided meditations because my brain is so spazzy. No matter what my energy is like when I start, it’s completely transformed by the end.

Mediation is fantastic for relaxation, visualization and manifestation but connecting to Source, I find, is the true value.

Developing a daily connection with a higher power, creates clearer lines of communication, so that you are able to receive and hear what the universe is trying to say more efficiently.

Empaths tend to have a busy head with endless mind-chatter and often struggle with negativity, so meditation is fantastic opportunity to get grounded while also “doing the work” simultaneously.

A busy and chaotic mind is extremely un-grounding. Meditation will help you deal with stressful situations and actually give you that clearer insight, you so instinctively crave.

There are many forms of meditation. It is just a case of finding what works best for you.

🗝️ Creativity: In a world ruled by routine, people seldom take time to be creative,
but it’s so important to our inner peace! Being creative is one of the easiest ways to feel good. When we feel good we feel grounded. When we create from our passions
and our interests,
it has a beautiful uplifting effect on our psyche. Allowing self expressing to flow, no matter which form we choose, is one of the best ways to feel
energized and grounded.

🗝️ Chakra Balancing: We have 7 main chakras which are part of your energetic body. They are our centers of spiritual power that run the length of our body, from the
lower torso to the crown of head. O
ur chakras are a vortex of energy aligned with our endocrine system. (organs which secrete hormones such as adrenalin, cortisone and thyroxine into the body). So basically, balanced chakras equals balanced hormones. 

When any chakra is out of balance it can create dis-ease within the body. Balancing our Chakras works beautifully for grounding, as well as being incredibly beneficial to the health of the entire body and mind.

Reiki is a great practice for balancing chakras.

🗝️ Yoga: “The moving meditation” Yoga is incredibly grounding. It works on a physical, mental and energetic level. No matter what your age or ability, it serves you. 

Yoga works to create a supple spine, the very core of yoga is built on the breath. By breathing in and out of postures, it stills and calms the mind, creating a strong supple body while grounding us to Mother Gaia.

🗝️ Nature: Our best friend! Being in nature has a healing and grounding effect on every Empath. If you have ever watched a tree breath, you know exactly how powerfully
healing and grounding she is.
As an Empath, if we spend little to
no time in nature,
we will struggle to stay grounded or find balance.

🗝️ Laughter: When I was a kid I used to have laughing attacks. One day,
in the fourth grade, I had one, in the middle of ‘reading time’.
The teacher
put me in front of the window and I had to breath to calm myself down.

I didn’t realize it at the time but in that moment I developed a limiting belief around laughter and fun. I felt ashamed and embarrassed. To be quite honest, I was never the same kid. I went from playful to mischievous almost instantly.

I recently had this epiphany, that this specific situation, played a huge part in my comfortability and vulnerability, when it came to being playful.

I spent my teenage years and early 20’s depressed, addicted and clutched by a severe eating disorder.

My life changed the day I decided to live my life, simply for the fun of it. 

What other reason is there?

🗝️ Crystals: The healing power of crystals has been known in many cultures for centuries. It is believed that the ancients actually had crystal chambers they used to heal physical, spiritual or energetic ailments. Most Empaths have some form of past life connection to Atlantis or Lemuria, where crystals were an influential part of life.

Crystals can be used with our chakras, to help balance them and remove blockages. Sensing their natural healing vibration, many Empaths are instinctively drawn to crystals specifically for their grounding and protective powers.

🗝️ Essential oils: As with crystals, the healing power of essential oils has been known throughout the ages. Sense of smell is so imperative, it absolutely adds to the magic of this human experience. There is an essential oil for every Empath, for every purpose; grounding, protection, re-balancing, relaxation, energy…

I personally love my essential Oils! Whether in a diffuser or simply in ritual before mediation, I always have a bottle next to the bed.

🗝️ Earthing: Although it’s last on this list, it is one of the most beneficial, when it comes to Empath grounding. Earthing simply means placing your feet on natural earth, ie
walking barefoot!

We often take for granted the extraordinary healing power of Mother Gaia,
connecting with her is one of the simplest ways for an Empath to ground themselves.

Take a walk outside, barefoot, soak up her energies and her love, Mother Gaia is always wanting to pour into you.

* If you have a leaky aura, you might find these grounding techniques less effective.

There are times when the Galaxy is in a state where grounding isn’t actually ideal and you’ll know it, it will almost feel impossible to do so. This is when we surrender like we have never surrendered before, allowing all the magic to pour into us.
