Beginning –Food is a great way to ground yourself. Root vegetables help you get in touch with the element of earth, which carries the energy of stability, solidity and safety. Mushrooms and protein are also need more grounding in the vata, winter months as they naturally carry more air energy which can leave us less grounded. Root vegetables are more in season at this time of year. The Earth always provides what we need, when we need it.
We have to find balance by bringing in more of what we’re lacking. Most of us have an easier time being grounded in the spring and summer months and the garden helps us balance these days out with more leafy greens, watery fruits and edible flowers.There are tons more from the ground food options than what’s available at your local grocery store which can be frustrating. Food desserts are a thing. Some people can have a really hard time finding whole foods where they live.When you go to the grocery store, try and pick a new fruit of vegetable you’ve never had before. Take it home and Google up a recipe to try. You never know what you may discover you like. If you don’t like it cooked the way you decide, don’t give up on it or write it off as not for you. There are tons of ways to cook everything.Add your intentions into your food as you prepare and/or eat it. Doing this is as simple as imagining the desired energy flowing into the food or speaking words over it. Much like blessing the food as seen in many cultures and religions.10:30 –Being out in nature can be very grounding. As cliche as it may sound, lean against a tree, hug it, put your to it, give it all of your anxieties and tune yourself to it’s stable, calm energy.Pulling your focus into the soles of your feet, into your knees, your hips. There’s a lot going on in the top half of our bodies because this is where most of our senses and organs lie. Bringing our attention down into the lower half of our body where there’s less going on can help to calm us.The beauty about using your attention and focus to ground yourself is that you don’t have to carve out time and space to do it. It’s accessible at every moment, no matter what else is going on. All it takes it the thought to do so.Sitting on the ground, touching grass, putting your bare feet onto the ground. This is called ‘earthing’ and has been scientifically shown to reduce not only anxiety but inflammation throughout the entire body.Check in with your senses. Notice what you feel, hear, see, taste, touch. Generally speaking, we tend to be anxious when we’re spending too much time in our heads. This by far isn’t the only form of anxiety. Sometimes, bringing our focus to our physical body can cause more anxiety. You really have to analyze your own unique flavor of anxiety, try various things and find what works best for you.Exercise is a great way to ground yourself. That can mean any form of movement be it walking, dancing, hard core exercise or something else you find joy in. Get the energy in your body moving so anything bothering you can be released.You can absolutely take exercise too far, becoming addicted and using it to avoid other things in your life that need attention as well.17:20 –Every exercise is a whole body exercise. In the fitness community we have “leg day”, “arm day”, “ab day”, etc. Which is another example of us sectioning ourselves off into pieces and parts instead of acknowledging ourselves as a whole.When you’re engaging one area of your body, the rest of your body is reacting to that whether you notice it or not. This is most notable in yoga and we’re being directed by our instructor to engage all parts of our body in each stretch. Proper form focuses on posture, alignment, engagement of certain muscles, etc. It’s complex and touches all parts of us, integrating the entirety of our body.Exercise and food can particularly help health related anxiety. Nothing calms health anxiety like working on your health. If you can build your strength through physical training, you prove to yourself that you are strong and healthy. If you can tame your eating habits to support your system, you worry less about what poor eating habits may be doing to you.Think of yourself as a video game character. Feed yourself healthy foods for strength and stamina, put yourself to sleep when you need to recover, make yourself a green smoothie or a glass of orange juice and call it a health potion. Think of everything you do, ingest and interact with as either building your character or damaging it.Food is not like medicine, food is medicine. The cleaner your diet, the clearer and better you’ll feel.Imagine there’s an energy field around you and each piece of fruit or vegetable you eat, it fortifies this protective shield, keeping you from harm.24:15 –Be a little delusional if that’s what you need to be/ believe in to get you by easier. The placebo and nocebo effects are things that prove the power of our minds. It doesn’t matter if you think it’s “real” or not. You can decide to tell your mind that it is and your body will follow suit as though it is.Companies market all sorts of things to us as healthy that aren’t. Greenwashing is a thing to look out for because it’ll look like it’s healthy but when you read the ingredients it’s full of chemicals and things you can’t pronounce.Reality is created in our heads, literally and figuratively. We can visualize things that help and they do. They can be whatever we want them to be and take from it whatever we need.Where we focus is what we get. If we’re constantly focusing on “I don’t wanna get sick, don’t wanna get sick” the universe sees us focusing on getting sick and that’s exactly what’s going to happen. The universe and the law of attraction just copies and pastes anything that we’re putting our attention on. That’s why it’s best to not pay any attention to that which you don’t want, not to be confused with avoiding your problems. are spells. We’re casting them all day long so be sure you’re being careful, purposeful and intentional. Our language literally, in every way creates our world and many believe that the English language was created to keep us limited and small. So it’s really best to never complain.Stonewall your own negative thoughts, find a neutral position and then flipping it into something you do want. The greyrock method is something aimed at dealing with narcissists generally but you can use it to help you with manifesting as well.Our brains are designed to pick up and focus on things that could cause us problems or harm. That’s why it’s so much easier to notice and find the bad things in life and so difficult to focus on the good and happy.34:15 –Watching our words and thoughts, when we notice we say/think something that is in the opposite of the direction we want to go, we pause and find a neutral position to uphold. This brings us to the meditation direction of “silencing the mind,” Which we all agree is laughable.“Silencing the mind” tell us to do nothing and how can we do nothing? It goes against our nature and causes the opposite. Instead, we actively try and tune ourselves to a neutral position, focusing on the spaces between thoughts and attempting to make them larger and longer.We know what calm, ease and grace feels like. Visualize it. Try and find it right now in the moment. Create it in the now. It’s a muscle just like we move our hand or we don’t move our hand. Our minds are the same way.Be attentive of your words so that you’re not postponing, subconsciously or otherwise, that which you actually want. Sometimes we use our words to unknowingly self sabotage ourselves in order to stay in sameness because there’s safety in the known and familiar. Feel the energy of the wording.You are not your brain. Your brain will pop up all sorts of intrusive thoughts that you didn’t ask for or want. You are the conscious observer that notices these and doesn’t like them. You can then rework them as you see fit.We call this little brain child that is not you, the ego. It’s trying it’s best to keep you safe based on the programming it’s received from the world up until this point. You can give it a name if you like so that you can better differentiate whether or not it’s actually you when it pops up.The past is the past. It’s hard to accept it but accepting it is the only way of moving forward. Accepting it doesn’t mean it was okay. It just means that you’re not going to continue to let it effect things in your present. Now is all we have. Most often we’re living in the past or the future, but now is all there is and in this moment, we get to decide what reality is.What is the purpose of this moment?46:20 –All the different types of anxieties. Anxiety isn’t always a result of over thinking or worry. Anxiety is our body’s alarm system that something is wrong and that could be anything from a physical threat, a thought to a toxin, allergen or even hunger. It’s all the same alarm. There are a tons of different types of anxieties.Learning how to trust and talk to your body can help you with the clarity of knowing when you should probably go to the emergency room and kno
