When I started writing about grounding, I realized there was a lot of information to cover. Being grounded is so essential to our biofield, our health, and our lives. I’m a little surprised I have not written about grounding before now.

My definition of being grounded is the feeling of being connected to the earth, present in your body and in the moment. Being grounded helps us feel safe in our bodies, peaceful, centered, strong and alive.

 

Here are a few signs that you may not be grounded:

  • You misplaced your keys several times this week.
  • You have been bumping into things.
  • You feel fatigued, spacey and find it hard to stay organized.

In my energetic practice, many imbalances I discover in my clients energy field quickly resolve once they become grounded. I have found issues like headaches, anxiety, and jet lag fall away just by grounding.

How can you become grounded? Continue reading

Working on a Creative Project? Try Clarity Breathwork.

Clarity Breathwork can help keep you centered when focused on a long-term creative project. Shooting a film, launching a new business or remodeling a home is about 10% creativity and 90% hard work. The creative idea is only a small part of the process, the real creativity comes in solving all the problems that arise when manifesting an idea on the physical plane.

About a month ago on a New Dimensions Radio Program, I heard Terry Tempest Williams make the statement, “Courage is sustained attention.”

What a brilliant insight. It really made me think how many clients I have supported who have succeeded in manifesting their visions. I know how much courage it took them to stick with their project.

While supporting clients committed to long-term creative projects, I have noticed this “Sustained Attention” mode is when personal insecurities, old memories and limiting beliefs often surface. Writing a book, launching a new business, or completing a new series of paintings requires addressing and releasing any energetic blocks that stops the creative flow so you can continue to move forward.

A limiting thought like, “I’m not good enough” has to go if you have to make a deadline. Old wounds or past rejections can suddenly constrict energy flow in the physical body by causing an old back injury to emerge or cause you to suddenly not have any time to work.

Commitment takes courage. Being supported during the creative process keeps the whole experience manageable, exciting and even fun. Private Clarity Breathwork sessions are especially powerful because they create the space that allows you to let these blocks surface and release in a safe and gentle way. The focus is on you, your process and your project.

Breathwork keeps you connected to your initial passion as your vision takes form.

Clarity Breathwork is perfect for cutting right through writer’s block. When I need ideas about what to write my next post on, I just do a breath session. I’m amazed at the guidance I receive.

Support yourself as you manifest your goals and vision. Clarity Breathwork makes the creative process a lot more fun!

New Dimensions Radio

From the New Dimensions website:

“The purpose of New Dimensions Radio is to deliver life-affirming, socially and spiritually relevant information, practical knowledge and perennial wisdom through the voices and visions of those who are asking new questions and are looking at the world in positive and inspiring ways. It is through the exchange of ideas and information that we can be empowered and enabled to meet the future with greater energy and clarity.”

You can catch the next New Dimensions Radio show on Sunday morning at 7am in Oakland, California. Founders Justine Toms and Michael Toms conduct the hour-long interviews that cover an amazing array of writers, healers and spiritual explorers. There are several free interviews on their website and all programs can be downloaded for about two dollars.

I found an interview by Michael Toms of a fairly unknown writer named Bernadette Roberts from 1991 that is priceless. I have already listened to this interview about four times and I know I will be listening to it again.

Last week was Intelligent Evolution with Nicki Scully that you can listen to for free until July 31, 2012
