Being Grounded and Present in Your Body

Posted February 26th, 2015 by lexa and filed in Guided Writings

I intended to do this first thing this morning. It is already 3:50 p.m. Where did the day go? Let’s see what my Spirit Guides have to share today? (My husband’s three pound Chihuahua, Maveric is sitting on my lap “helping”).

Spirit Guides: We want to talk today about being grounded and present in your body. The human experience was created to learn love from a physical perspective. If you are not grounded and present in your body, you cannot have the full benefits of the physical body experience. How much time do you spend day dreaming, or thinking about the past or future. If you are in the past or future, you cannot be in the present. Being in nature is the best way to ground yourself to this beautiful earth you live on. We have suggested to you Lexa to lean on a tree, since trees are so well grounded. She responded with, oh my, that would make me a tree hugger, like it is a bad thing. Being a “tree hugger” helps you be grounded more quickly than any other technique we know of. Spend some time in nature this weekend. Get your bare feet on the grass, earth or sand. Lay in the sun, your body will absorb much needed vitamins and you will raise your brains serotonin levels. Join the other tree huggers of the world and hug a tree, see just how quickly you feel a deeper connection to the earth and yourself, see just why being a tree hugger is a great thing.

Note from Lexa: Oh, they crack me up. Yes I have had that message before many times. Now when I walk our dogs, I lean, very casually, on different trees around the neighborhood. It should look like it is a very normal think to do, but since I have to climb into planters and go way off the sidewalk to get to them I probably don’t look as normal as I want to. (I am o.k. with not being normal; I just don’t want to be locked up for being crazy.)

  1. I am very impressed with the article I have just read. I wish the you can continue to provide so much practical information and unforgettable experience to your readers. There is not much to state except the following universal truth: Getting a programmer to write user documentation is like giving a cat a bath. I will be back.
