Meditation is the practice of drawing your awareness into the present moment. When we take the time to meditate, we find that we become more clear, calm and awake. Meditation is not about trying not to think – it’s about practicing to be more present and aware.
Ground The Body
When sitting for meditation, often we find that our thoughts have taken our awareness into the future/planning or the past/remembering. There is nothing wrong with thoughts, but often we find that they spiral us into feeling anxiety about the future or regrets and fears of our past. When we experience a feeling of anxiety or stress our body believes that we are in danger and goes into survival mode.
Grounding is the process of coming into the body to experience ourselves and our lives from a literal perspective. Allowing time to be in our current breath and current body allows the mind, body and spirit to release stress and anxiety that arise from thoughts and move our bodies towards a calm experience.
