In this quick, but informative meditation, Jaisa guides us through an easy four step grounding exercise that we can incorporate into our everyday self-care routine. These four steps are called fun, shoe, tree and core.
The first step, fun stands for body scan. Beginning from the top of our head to the tips of your toes, begin to bring curious compassion to each of our body parts. Doing this brings gentle awareness to our body.
The second step is shoe, which stands for foot. Begin bringing gentle awareness to our feet, breathing in and out the energy surrounding them as they touch the ground. Jaisa suggests visualizing wearing ski boots or snowshoes on our feet as a way to intensify the energy.
The third step is tree, where we visualize our feet growing roots into the Earth, extending meters down, the roots growing both forward and backward and left to right of us. Doing this gives us a sense of security and binds us to the present moment.
The final and last step is core, where we visualize the roots extending from our feet to the core of the Earth. Once we tap into the core, we begin to breath in all of the life force energy that the Earth has to offer us. Breathing in this energy fuels our whole entire body.
After completing this simple exercise, I am thankful that I have nourished my mind, body and soul in this grounding fashion. I am not only grounded in the present moment, but also energized for my day! I will definitely remember this grounding exercise! Thank you Jaisa! Namaste 🙏🏻☮️❤️
