Those of you who are of the more technical bent may think that grounding and centering is one of those “new age”, space cadet ideas. On the other hand, the members of your team who lean toward the more spiritual may insist that you participate in this process.
In Part I, I pointed out that because of your state of mind at the time of the investigation, you may be more vulnerable to acquire an attachment. If you are stressed out, ill, etc. going through the grounding and centering process will, in effect, help to bring your mind back into focus. Having the whole team focused ensures that everyone is ready to proceed with the investigation in a safe and organized way, thereby eliminating the team’s weakest link.
There are many techniques that can be used to ground and center. You may have your own process. The following is just one way to proceed:
- Get comfortable (you can do this standing, seated or lying down)
- Take a deep breath filling your lungs with fresh air. Hold this breath to the count of four.
- Exhale to the count of four, imagining any negative thoughts or energy leaving your body.
- Repeat this process three or four times or until you feel at ease.
- Now imagine that you are a tree. If you are standing, imagine you head and arms are full of leaves and your body is the tree trunk.
- Next, imagine the roots of the tree growing down from your feet.
- Continue your deep breathing, imagining your roots going deeper into the earth with each breath.
- Repeat this process three or four times until you feel deeply rooted in the earth. Nothing can move you from your place.
- Now in your mind’s eye see a white light entering your head at the crown.
- With each breath imagine this light moving further into your body. Feel the energy filling your every cell. If you’re familiar with chakra theory, you can imagine that with each breath you are proceeding to the next chakra point.
- Repeat this process in this order: crown, forehead, throat, heart, belly, below the navel and finally the base of your spine.
- Take a couple of breaths, enjoying the feeling of the light energizing every cell.
Congratulations! You are now grounded and centered.
For those of us who are sensitives, this is especially important, but it is a valuable practice for all investigators. This is especially true where negative entities have been reported. It should immediately follow grounding and centering.
- Take a deep breath and imagine a glowing ball of light centered over your diaphragm.
- As you take each succeeding breath, imagine the ball of light growing until it surrounds you like a bubble.
- Imagine the earth energy you have been bringing up through your roots is filling this space. This energy will now be available to you.
Hope all your future investigations are happy and safe!
