When we get lost in thought or we attach to each thought floating through it can be easy to disconnect from our body. We become so wound up in thinking about what has happened or what could happen that we lose all sense of being in the present right here right now.
During this period of disconnect it is easy to move along without purpose with a feeling of no direction; essentially floating. A feeling of disconnect not only with self but with family, friends and community can eventuate and we can even enter a state of shut down or severe depression.
The energy we consume replaying thoughts and worrying can become debilitating. Often it is when we are all consumed by thought that our body can start dropping hints in the form of illness that it is in a state of deprivation.
Often the smallest challenge when in this state can knock us right over or feel like a huge burden that we don't know how to approach.
Placing our feet on the Earth in nature can enable us to connect with Mother Nature and find ourselves back in our body; centred in our self and with the physical. emotional and mental space we are in.
Today I choose to find a place in nature where I can focus on connecting with Earth energy. Feel my body being held up by the support of nature; listen to natures beautiful sounds, smells and colours.
Ideas for grounding in nature:
* watch the sunrise or sunset
* a walk on sand at the beach
* spending time in the garden
* watch some animals or flowers
* witness the birds in the morning or evening
Remember this time is phone and device off time.
Take the opportunity to journal how you feel after some time in nature.
