Starting the day Grounded

In the previous post last week, I presented the five mindful questions to ask of yourself when you wake up in the morning. This week I’ll take one, the first question and expand on it further.

How grounded am I?
That is how well are you earthed to the ground? How solid do your feet feel below you when you get out of bed and start your day?
When your feet first hit the floor/carpet, how solid are they attached to the floor? Can you feel the whole sole of your foot contacting the ground? Take a second, pause and actually feel the sensation of the base of your feet.

There might be gaps were you don’t feel anything. Your feet might also not feel heavy to the floor, but very light and slippery. There may even be some pain or tension.

If your feet are not feeling grounded then chances are your legs and even pelvis may feel this lack of connection and solidity too.

With low groundedness you destabilize easily, so there can be some internal anxiety, with your body trying to find the safety in the ground. Without solid ground below your feet, you can be toppled over much easier, you won’t feel confident in your day and your head will be working hard to keep you safe in the world and that takes a lot of energy. You are likely to tire much more easily or come home after work more exhausted than you should be.

There are exercises you can do to help this of course. More next time.

Disconnection from your Body can cause so much Misery

It never ceases to amaze me when a client has a problem (health/habit/phobia/limitation//trauma/psychological etc), that it can be changed rapidly just by bringing the focus into the body while the head is still trying to work it all out (the old way.) Some words of wisdom that can save you a lot of time, drama,Continue Reading

Take time to put ‘on’ your body

We take time to put on our clothes each morning. We should also take time to put on our body. Try not to leave home in the morning without getting into your body first. Body Mindfulness work helps you to do this. Taking a few minutes minimum everyday to actually feel into your body canContinue Reading

That Ego Voice in your Head

When it comes to Self Healing the bottom line – is facing the pain you have stored away in the cells of your body. Your ego is doing a great job at keeping that pain at bay and building an identity and behaviour pattern around it all to keep you safe. Initially that’s good andContinue Reading

As a child, what did you sacrifice within you, to keep the peace?

A question I’d like to ask you… Q. What tension did you bottle up as a child? As a child living in the environment of your parents and siblings, what did you sacrifice within you, to keep the peace? Whatever that is, if you haven’t done the inner work to clear it, chances are itContinue Reading

Forget the Deadline – just for a short period

At the end of last year I was very busy relocating my practice after 16 years in the one spot. It’s been a big change but a better one. It was interesting watching how I handled deadlines with renovations of the new place and the tight closing down deadlines of the old place. Without mindfulnessContinue Reading

The Bizarre Twitches and Jerks

“What are these twitches and jerks George! They are bizarre!” Such were the comments of a client recently after their session. Welcome to my world! Where every little subtle sensation and feeling is┬átreated as much more important than the thoughts in your head. To the average person, when they do this work, (getting into theContinue Reading

They are co-operating at a phenomenal rate passing messages to each other. Each cell is a living, breathing, feeding life form, being. It moves, it hurts, it plays, it does the jobContinue Reading
