BARBARA BUCK: “Ascension and Our Pets — How We Can Support Them”

“Species like horses, cats, bunnies, and dogs have chosen to help humans in a way that’s different from other animals. They participate in our healing by being interconnected with us in a way that is unique to the planet.”

~Barbara Buck

 

What happens to your pets when you level up? I’m happy to tell you that, not only do they get to come along, but they’ve been supporting you and the planet through this process for a very long time. They’re going through their own form of Ascension, as well as ushering us into 5D.

When the Harmonic Convergence happened in 1987, we received a massive influx of higher frequencies, and they keep on coming. Many people are slowly beginning to understand that humanity is going through a spiritual awakening that’s both extraordinary and difficult.

While we went through the process of waking up, nature and the animal kingdom grounded and balanced the new frequencies into the Earth’s grid while we learned how to effectively do it ourselves. We’ve only recently been able to hold the light on our own, much to the hard work of the animal kingdom.

Our Pets Help Us as We Shift Frequencies

Species like horses, cats, bunnies, and dogs have chosen to help humans in a way that’s different from other animals. They participate in our healing by being interconnected with us in a way that is unique to the planet.

Animals will take on clearing for their human families in a number of ways. They’ll often absorb the negative energies we give off, which can make them sick. Many animals will have challenges with behavior as they try to integrate and clear the energy we create when we have stuck stress or emotions.

They’ll also act as shadow mirrors for us so that we can see what work we need to do to resolve trauma. If we have tension or anxiety, our dogs will mirror it by being reactive, aggressive, or destructive. If we are always afraid, so are our animals.

If they drive us crazy, it’s only so that we can recognize what we’ve chosen to avoid for so long.

Living in Human Homes Makes Their Ascension Process Harder

Normally animals would be able to process and purge the energy they absorb from us by grounding, eating a healthy natural diet, getting plenty of rest, and drinking fresh water. Sadly, we restrict them from being outdoors in nature when they need it, give them processed food like kibbles, and tap water or filtered water that doesn’t have the proper mineral balance.

They’re inundated with chemicals from pesticides and household cleaners. Remember, they spend most of their time on the ground, so they pick up all this stuff on their paws and coats, as well as breathing it in.

Environmental pollution, electrical interference, and radiation from things like wifi, computers, and cell phones don’t help, either. They’re constantly working to keep their frequency high while going through this Ascension cycle, but they’ve got a LOT to fight against when they live in a human home.

Pets experience Ascension symptoms as a result of being connected to us. Here are a few signs your pet might be having them:

  • Behavior issues like reactivity, separation anxiety, insecurity, fear, depression
  • Autistic and ADD-like behavior
  • Digestive issues
  • Joint pain
  • Picky eating
  • Liver, gallbladder, pancreas, and kidney disorders
  • An improper sense of justice that causes reactivity
  • Fatigue
  • Excess shedding that’s not normal for the breed, or loss of feathers
  • Excessive urination
  • Needing either too much attention or too much alone time

Once we become aware that our pets are experiencing Ascension symptoms that they normally wouldn’t if they were still part of the natural order of things, there are steps we can take to remove some of the energetic burden they carry. Here are some tips that can help.

As in all things, use discernment and practice common sense.

Give Them Better Quality Food and Water

Most people who are actively going through the shift naturally turn toward a more healthy lifestyle. They choose higher vibrational foods and steer clear of harsh chemicals and anything that’s processed or unnatural. Animals need the same thing, but we’ve kind of got them trapped, so they can’t do what they need to do to stay physically healthy.

Many pet food manufacturers use offal and poor quality ingredients that aren’t fit for human consumption. Meat is sourced from animals that were sick, euthanized, or died of natural causes in factory farms that process meat meant for people. Studies have also found shelter kill (cats and dogs) and euthanasia drugs in some dog foods.

The pet food industry is self-regulated, so there are no real rules about what they can and can’t do. They can and do feed your pets trash without recourse.

Research the best natural diet for your pet, then do your best to provide it. If money or time is an issue and you absolutely must feed kibble or other processed food, then research where the manufacturer sources the ingredients, especially the meat. Educate yourself on this.

Don’t fill your pet’s bowls with tap water if you wouldn’t drink it yourself. I live in the desert where the tap water is chemically treated, so we use an RO filter and replace nutrients with trace minerals.

Create a Safe Energetic Environment

Whether your animals are in your home, backyard, or barn, they need a space that is healthy.

Check for electromagnetic interference around your pets sleeping and hanging out areas, and if you find it, take steps to correct it. This could be as simple as turning off wifi at night because your pet is right in the line of the signal, or getting a blanket that shields them from EMF overload.

Protective crystals like shungite and kyanite can be used around a pet’s area, but be careful they’re in a place where your pet can’t get to them. You can also attach crystal pendants to a collar or bridle.

Many people like to burn sage to clear a space, but animals can be very sensitive to smoke from herbs. A better option is to make lavender or rosemary water and spray it around the area of your home you want to clear.

Help Them Heal with Energy Medicine

Pets can get really depleted energetically, so helping them clear and recharge with healing modalities like Reiki, Reconnective Healing, or Golden Frequency can be very helpful. They normally get all the energy they need from their environment, but that’s hard to do when they live indoors.

Most animals will let you know when they want healing from you. Intend to share energy with them, and if your pet wants it, they’ll usually come and sit near you. Sometimes they’ll even put the body part they need help with right on you!

Acupuncture, massage, and craniosacral therapy are also great tools to help your animal become more balanced energetically.

Use Natural Supplements and Medicine

The liver, gall bladder, and pancreas can be responsible for many Ascension symptoms, so supplemental support can be very helpful. Milk thistle tincture (alcohol-free) can be safely added to pet food or water to detox these organs and decrease inflammation.

As our pets move up the frequency ladder, minerals can get depleted, and they can also have a hard time absorbing nutrients. Add trace minerals or Bioplasma cell salts to their water.

Using natural remedies instead of medication whenever possible can have a big impact on your pet’s health. Always make sure that what you’re giving your pet is species-appropriate.

There’s been a big push by veterinarians lately to medicate reactive or fearful dogs with drugs like Prozac and Xanax. These drugs have never been tested for safety with animals and can have severe side-effects and a risk of overdose. CBD hemp oil is a non-psychotropic drug that’s safe for most animals.

Heal Yourself, Heal Your Pet

I’ve been blessed to facilitate healings for thousands of animals over the years, and I’ve noticed that they tend to mirror their owner’s illnesses. People with autoimmune diseases have dogs with autoimmune diseases, and stressed out people have anxious dogs.

They bless us with the gift of showing us the things that are hard for us to see.

The more self-work we do, the easier it is for us to support our beloved animals through the Ascension process. They won’t have to process as much negative energy for us as we release and clear the denser vibrations we’ve accumulated.

About the Event

The world is shifting.
The old is making way for the new.

Simple statements. Yet the meaning behind these words can hardly be expressed in the language of spoken thought. Humanity is reaching a point of growth where the understanding of reality will explode into a completely unfamiliar space, where the way the human body understands time and perception will shift into brand new awareness, individual by individual.

In order to begin this shift within ourselves, we must begin to truly search for a language to interact with our bodies along with the reality around us. Accessing ancestral knowledge deep within DNA requires application outside of spoken word and linear thought. It requires true awareness of perception, both inside and outside of the body. Enter the GoldenFrequency Immersion experience, which is knowledge bolstered by action.

Knowledge of self goes much deeper than thought. Knowledge makes way for action; actively shifting what you do not resonate with into what you truly wish to experience.

This knowledge, this level of perception, within and without, holds trauma, ancestral karma, mental thought loops, emotional stagnancy and pain origins. They also hold all the joy, triumph, ancestral dharma, clear thinking, and love origins. As soon as we can become aware of these levels of inner and outer perception, we have the ability to shift.

This is the secret of self mastery.

This is the secret of self activation.

This is how we step INTO the realm of the ‘impossible’ and the ‘supernatural’.

This is how we make the extraordinary real.

Having scoured the planet for modalities, techniques, meditations and energies that activate the human consciousness in the mind-body-spirit-trifecta, we have put together this seven day program that allows us all to begin tapping into these vast resources within us. This wondrous potential to create enough amperage inside of the body, that we can heal ourselves of anything we do not wish to experience has a space to manifest into. A space to create joy and new living memories within these living vessels.

Through personal application, we have streamlined the process, providing the awareness, information and knowledge needed in order to access these “supernatural” abilities innate in every single human capable of focusing, being conscious and having the ability to breathe.

Walking hand in hand with these revelations are spiritual, physical, energetic, emotional and psychological techniques to allow you to open the doorway to taking control of your sovereignty.

As a Sovereign human, pain, emotional trauma, mental discomfort and genetic programs become more optional, meaning as soon as you become aware of them, you can shift them into new emotions, sensation, habits, and energy.

Change your perceptions, change your life!
Come immerse yourself for a full 7 days in our 3rd Annual Golden Frequency Retreat on the sacred mountain, Mount Shasta. Each day we will immerse ourselves deeper and deeper into this luminous esoteric knowledge, while being gently cradled in the healing energy of Sacred Earth.

**Overview of the week:

*The evening of check in, we will have an informal meet and greet. One of the goals of the week is to build community and friendships, to get to talk with others, face to face, who share a common vision and love. The sharing of wisdom and experiences. Ample time is built into the week for bonding, absorbing, realigning, and solitude, if need be.

*Every morning we will begin with a unique morning routine of yoga, Qi Kung and meditation. This routine is designed to take home with you. You can either take the routine whole as a foundation for a great daily practice or take the pieces that fit into your already existent routine of spiritual self care. The choice is yours.

The flow of this morning routine creates the sacred space for our daily lessons and practice. From this foundation building, we will gradually stack practical awareness into direct experience, building a physical energy that can be created, cultured and used at will in your every day life.

*Topics covered will include:

~Meridian flows– beginning and advanced; Clearing your energetic body as a daily practice;

~The Etheric Construct– how to identify it, how to clear it, how to do the inner work to create true sovereignty. On this day, we will have hands on work, where you will work on yourself then practice working with one another.

~Organ Systems– how they connect to each other, support the body, clean toxicity and more importantly, how to physically, energetically and emotionally detox the organs of the body.

~Genetic clearings– How unprocessed trauma, emotional programs and habits pass down through the family line, how to find those connections within yourself and how to clean the family genetics, breaking generational cycles and activating genetic knowledge of talents and wisdom from ancient times.

~Each of the seven days will have an individual focus and flow.

*One afternoon will be set aside for a group adventure and the organic unfolding of energy work in a nature. In former years, we have gone to the river and the lake. This years adventure will be announced closer to the event.

Over the course of the week, we will share laughter and meals, fireside ceremony and song. We will grow in spirit, health, and awareness. We will fill our cups collectively and individually. We will all leave changed for the better for having met one another. The only way out is in!

Squad 3 is ready to activate!!

The retreat tickets include all 7 days of workshops plus lunch and dinner each day plus 6 nights of ceremony and laughter! Also included in the ticket price is 8 nights stay at the beautiful McCloud Mercantile with breakfast vouchers for use at the cafe’ or restaurant.

***Check in is Sunday evening, the day before the first class which starts Monday morning. (This is also our informal, optional meeting night.)

*There is a variety of shared options available to help bring costs down and to build community.

*There are Men and Women’s group rooms available, as well as mixed shared rooms.

*Shared rooms brings cost down considerably and the shared memories up exponentially! Definitely consider sharing one of these!

*Accommodate

*There are also single person and/or family style rooms available for reservation as well.

***Ticket price includes NON REFUNDABLE $200 deposit***

Dates include check-in the evening before workshop, 7 full days of immersive workshops and check-out the morning after classes end.

Retreat ticket includes sleep and meal accommodations.

Below you will find our list of ticketed room/bed combos.

~First on the list are rooms notated with the number of beds and whether the room is being shared by men or women (ie 2Women, means there are two beds in a womens shared space).

~Next come rooms with triple beds, these are by far the most economical.

~ As mentioned previously, if you want to share a room with a partner or friend, let us know on the registration (there’s a place to request) or via email at Insight@UnleashingNaturalHumanity.com.

We will discuss the details of room or sharing situation requested with you there.

~If you want to share a bed with another person, let us know and we will walk you through the process of purchasing the additional ticket and getting them registered.

~Vegetarian* or Omnivore food options available for the shared meals (lunch & dinner). Please note your selection on the registry. (*We are seeking to have as many vegan options as possible, but can assure vegetarian.)

~If you have any specific food allergies let us know in the comment box on the registration as well.

We are incredibly excited to see you all there!
If you are interested in our retreat, we welcome you to join us in our Facebook Group:

Golden Frequency Immersion – Squad 3

“This space is dedicated to those intrepid souls who will be attending our third annual Golden Frequency Immersion Retreat in McCloud, California. May this be a place of bonding, community building, room sharing, laughter and road trips. May we all meet as strangers here and say goodbye as family.”

~Feel Free to join the group, find people to room share with (if you find a good match let us know and we can shuffle things to make it work), plot ride-shares and generally just begin to build community. Once the retreat begins, we will close down the group to include only those attending, for us all to continue on our journey together in a safe space of belonging.

This is going to be our best year yet!
Many, many blessings to you and yours,
From our hearts to yours,

Eric & Siara

CAMERON DAY: “The Best Form of Meditation You’re (Probably) Not Doing”

You might know this about me already, but I’m a big advocate for meditation of all kinds.

There are a multitude of different types of meditation options available. With so many options, it can be pretty confusing to know what to do and what will work best for you.

I’m going to touch briefly on two popular types of meditation for this article, and then dive into a third type that is my personal favorite.

The first type of meditation is one pretty much everyone has heard of: Transcendental Meditation, or which falls into the category of “mantra meditation,” where the practitioner repeats a mantra silently in order to calm the stream of thoughts that arise from the mind.

TM has become a big business in the U.S. and is fairly expensive to get started with, but even with that facet in the mix, many people can attest that TM was the first meditation practice that they were able to continue to do long-term, which makes it a win in my book.

Meditation type number two is Guided Visualization, which I am obviously quite fond of, given my penchant for producing them. One big advantage of guided visualization is that it can allow someone who normally has trouble quieting the mind to have a meditative, healing experience.

It can also allow someone to tap into the meditative benefits of an experienced meditator by following in their footsteps, so to speak.

Our third type of meditation is what I consider the most important form of meditation in my own life, and I call it simply, “Silence Meditation” although it is also often referred to as “Mindfulness Meditation,” which I consider slightly different.

You might be surprised to hear that I don’t use guided visualizations since I produce so many of them, but that’s exactly the reason I don’t utilize them: I tend to like my own versions better.

So what is Silence Meditation? It is the simple, but not easy, act of sitting in total silence, with a focus on achieving a complete stillness in the mind. A total absence of thought, even for just a few moments.

This is simple in concept, but difficult in practice, because the mind’s nature is to produce thought and it does so consistently all day and even at night when we’re in REM sleep. Yes, our nighttime dreams are a form of thought expressing itself, and the thoughts only cease when we go down into the deepest levels of Delta sleep.

How to Silence the Mind… For a Few Moments

Upon reading the above, the mind naturally will produce a question: “How can someone use the mind to silence their mind?” There are almost as many ways of achieving this silence as there are meditators in the world, which means that there is no one right way to do it.

Since there isn’t a single “right way,” I will just tell you how I do it for myself, because my methods are somewhat unconventional. No surprise there, right?

First is the setup, or how I sit. I use a “V” shaped meditation cushion and place it in front of my couch so that I can rest my back against it. You could use a wall for this purpose, too.

This goes against the grain of meditation teachers who want people to sit fully upright with no back support. That’s great for a photo-shoot, but the reason I use something for back support is because I don’t want to be distracted by thinking about what position my body is in during meditation.

By sitting upright on my pillow while supporting my back with my couch, I eliminate one of the major distractions of sitting and meditating. For your own practice, feel free to simply sit in a chair that allows you to have upright posture. Go with whatever is the most simple and supportive for your body.

Next is blocking out the external world, which I achieve with ear plugs and a blind-fold. More specifically, I use a pair of sound-isolating “ear-buds” for playing audio. They block outside sounds better than regular ear plugs, and allow me to use one of the Genius Brain Power audio tracks to help assist my meditation if I so choose. Usually an Alpha or Theta track.

Some would consider using brainwave entrainment cheating or a crutch, but if it works for the individual, I say go for it. Now to be fair, I personally only use entrainment audio once in a while when the background noise level is too high for the ear-buds alone to block.

95% of the time I just use the ear-buds with no audio because they work better for me than standard foam ear plugs. Keep in mind that the ear plugs are optional, but if you find yourself being distracted by background noise while meditating, then I recommend trying out some ear plugs for a few sessions.

As for the blindfold, any type of blindfold will suffice, and if necessary you can improvise with whatever you have around. Even a long-sleeve shirt will do in a pinch. Enough said there.

Time Enough for Self-Love

With the setup handled, it’s time to start meditating, right? Almost. One more important thing: Use a timer! You don’t want to be distracted by thinking about how long you’ve been meditating, so a simple kitchen timer will alert you when your pre-determined time is up.

But how long should you meditate? That is entirely up to you! I personally meditate in this fashion for 22 minutes in the early morning, which is long enough to get the job done, and short enough that I won’t make up an excuse not to do it.

I arrived at 22 minutes in a somewhat arbitrary fashion. I started out at 10 minutes, and added one minute a day until I was at 20 minutes. Later I added one more minute as an easy way to accomplish 5% more meditation. Eventually I went up one more minute to 22 simply because I like repeating numbers.

So 22 is my “magic number,” but your number might be smaller, especially at first, and that’s fine! You could start with just 5 minutes if you need to, and gradually add one minute per day until you are at a number you feel is giving you the results you desire.

The most important part of choosing your meditation duration is to start small and gradually increase the time each day that you meditate IF you want. If the number feels small and easy to do, then you are far more likely to do it than if you choose a number that feels like an arduous task, or an amount of time that could make you late for work, an appointment, etc.

A shorter duration is better for those days when you’re not getting into a deep meditative state and you’re constantly silencing mind-chatter without enjoying any mental quietness. Speaking from experience, the temptation to “bail out” of the process is far smaller if I know that I won’t have to struggle with that day’s meditation for too long.

The Actual “Silence Meditation” Process

I’m seated, ears are plugged, eyes blind-folded, the timer has started and now it’s time to actually meditate. The first thing I do is start breathing slowly and deeply, putting all of my focus on my breath. After years of practice this alone produces a few moments of blissful mental silence.

But not for long! No sir! My wonderful mind has all kinds of lovely thoughts it wants me to entertain. So when the first thought comes up, I use a mental prompt to release it: Clear the Deck.

As I think those words, I also direct my mind to a brief visualization of the deck of a wooden boat, out at sea, with nothing but blue skies and blue water in every direction, and I imagine that the thoughts are being swept off the deck, down into the water.

Then I let the visualization fade away and return to focus on my breath.

Silence. Breath. Silence. “I need to mail that check to…” (or whatever thought bubbles up).

Yes, the silence doesn’t last for long, especially in the early days and weeks of meditation, and sometimes even after years of practice. But that’s okay! The mind produces thoughts. That’s one of its main jobs and it can take a lot of training to get it to go into that deep silence.

When that thought arises, and it always does, I will name the type of thought, which is a form of acceptance and acknowledgement. I don’t want to fight my mind, only to direct it, so I acknowledge the thought with one word whenever possible.

Examples: Planning, anticipating, ruminating, reminiscing, worrying, analyzing, imagining, judging, speculating.

Once I name the thought, I use my next mental prompt which is: Let it go. So it would “sound” (in my mind) like, “Planning… Let it go.” Yep, I keep things simple!

Silence. Breath. Silence. “I wonder if I’ll have time to exercise before breakfast.” “Oh… Anticipating… Let it go.”

Silence. Breath. Silence. “That guy trolling my blog really needs to get a life.” “Ahhh…judging… Let it go.”

Two More Prompts

I also use two more mental prompts to help deepen the meditative state. Over time these have become commands which my mind (usually) obeys. The first one is “Go Deep.” This pretty consistently puts me into a deeper brainwave state, which I can feel happening because I have practiced it for years, both with and without brainwave entrainment.

The other prompt is “Go Clear” which very nicely clears away any stray thoughts. I tend to use these prompts after releasing a thought with “Let it go” in order to deepen the meditative state and extend the amount of time where no thoughts are floating through my mind.

Slow It Down

I like to “speak” all of those thought-prompts very slowly in my mind. For example, if I’m thinking “Go Clear,” I will think “Gooooooooooo” on the in breath, and “Clearrrrrrrrrr” on the out breath.

Slowing down the thoughts helps lead me back to the state of non-thought more easily.

“This is Too Hard!”

When most people first try this style of meditation, they often don’t have much success at quieting the mind. That’s okay! The fact that you took some time to sit up straight, breathe deeply and even attempt to meditate is huge!

Seriously, you should congratulate yourself after every meditation session, no matter how “good” or “bad” it seemed to be.

Even if you spent the entire time “clearing the deck” and “letting it go” with no observable quieting of the mind, you should STILL give yourself a pat on the back for putting in the time and effort.

Then do it again tomorrow.

With regular practice (daily is best) you will start to have moments of pure mental silence, and over time those moments will grow longer and more frequent. There can still be bad days where you can’t put the thoughts aside, and that’s ok, too!

Remind yourself that whatever is happening in your mind is ok. Don’t fight the mind, just do your best to guide it gently into that place of silent rest.

“These Prompts Don’t Work For Me!”

This is where things get personal. Not that I will take it personally if my prompts don’t work for you, but personal in the sense that everyone will respond differently to the process of guiding their own mind into a place of silence.

The prompts that I use just might not work for you, which means that you’ll need to come up with some of your own. I think it’s fine to figure that out during the meditation session, since if the prompts you are using aren’t working, you might as well spend that time to audition some new prompts.

However, and this is a big however, I recommend that you don’t give up on the prompts until you have tried them a few times.

Why? Because using the same prompts repeatedly over time conditions the mind to respond to those prompts more effectively.

“What’s the Point?”

I know life is busy, and often the first things that we drop when we are pressed for time are self-care and self-empowering practices. However, if you can give yourself the gift of just 5-20 minutes per day of meditation practice, you will start to reap many rewards.

The state of no-thought is incredibly calming, soothing and even blissful. Five seconds of mental silence is like giving your mind a massage or warm bath. This produces mental, emotional and physical relaxation, reduces inflammation and releases beneficial hormones in the body.

With practice, this or any other type of meditation practice will help you to have “space” between stimulus (stress) and response (reaction) in your environment. Instead of cursing at the guy who cuts you off in traffic, you might find yourself taking a deep breath and saying, “Let it go” instead.

After all, that other driver can’t hear your words and your inner peace is more valuable than anger, especially when you’re driving.

Instead of snapping at your spouse/child/parent/sibling/co-worker/etc. when they push your buttons, you could find yourself taking a deep breath and calmly explaining what you truly want to communicate to them.

Those “little victories” in our day feel really good, and regular meditation can help them to happen more organically, more often.

Best Time of Day?

Opinions vary on the best time of day to meditate. For years I was more of a night-time meditator, but when I switched to meditating in the morning I found that it had profound, beneficial impacts on my state of being for the rest of the day.

Putting it simply, silence meditation in the morning makes me generally happier, less impatient and more compassionate on days that I do it compared to days where I come up with an excuse to skip it, which is very rare.

Limiting my morning meditation time to 22 minutes almost completely removes any thought of skipping it, where for mysterious psychological reasons, a 30 minute meditation is easier to skip “because I’m running late” or some other excuse.

Keeping it short and easy to achieve is the key to success in morning meditation.

Take the 5×7 Test Drive

Often one of the biggest self-imposed barriers to trying a something new is the belief that if we start doing it, we have to do that new thing forever, so we don’t even start.

So forget about forever, and instead just take a test drive of doing a silence meditation for 5 minutes per day for 7 days.

That’s it. Just 35 minutes of time over the course of a week. If you can commit to that small investment, it is possible that you will like the results so much that you decide to keep the practice, but you are not obligated by anyone, especially yourself, to do so.

Share Your Experience

Do you already meditate like this? If so, please leave a comment for how you achieve those delicious moments of mental silence. Your setup, your inner prompts, any helpful tips for others, etc.

Are you trying this for the first time, or picking it back up again? Let me know how it’s going for you.

CAMERON DAY: “Ungrounded Energy — A Widespread Issue”

“Two of the adverse consequences of being ungrounded are that it can cause a person to be too easily swayed by the opinions of others, as well as be fooled by any of the many deceptions in our world. These are reason enough to put a consistent, daily focus on being fully present in your body and powerfully grounded to Earth’s core.”

~Cameron Day

 

It used to be common knowledge in consciousness circles that a person needed to be grounded both energetically and physically. People would talk about what foods helped them feel the most grounded, how spending time in nature helped them ground their meditative experiences and so on. However, I have noticed a trend in the last few years where people are getting very ungrounded, and are even encouraging others to engage “spiritual” practices that are very ungrounding. (Spell check says “ungrounding” is not a word, but I say that it is. 🙂 )

Two of the adverse consequences of being ungrounded are that it can cause a person to be too easily swayed by the opinions of others, as well as be fooled by any of the many deceptions in our world. These are reason enough to put a consistent, daily focus on being fully present in your body and powerfully grounded to Earth’s core. I could go on and on about the pitfalls and dangers of being spacey, ungrounded, partially out of body, etc. but I will leave that aside in the interests of keeping this article short.

First, Get Into Your Body!

Many people are chronically partially out of their body due to a variety of conditions, some of which include: unhealed past physical or emotional traumas, living out of contact with the earth (cities, apartments, etc.), doing “out of body” meditations, excessive daydreaming, unwillingness to confront the darker aspects of the subconscious mind, excessive use of alcohol or other drugs, over-consumption of television and other forms of digital entertainment, too much “cleansing” / calorie-restrictive dieting, and more.

The “Higher Self Meditation” in the Self-Clearing System puts a focus on bringing your own Inner Light back down into your body because most people are literally floating above themselves energetically. A repeated focus on seating your energy in your heart center helps you to be truly IN your body. Keep in mind that the “Higher” Self is only deemed that because so much of our Sovereign Self is floating above the body instead of residing within it.

Being fully present in the body can take a while, depending on how habitually disconnected and ungrounded a person has been in their life. Centering our energy in our heart center is the first, most basic step to restoring our full presence in the body, so that we can then get grounded.

Get Your Feet On the Ground

Even if you live in a dense urban environment, there will be parks and other places where some nature still exists. Seek out those places and put your bare feet onto the grass, dirt, sand, etc. While you’re there with your feet on the ground, do the simple grounding meditation below and walk around for a bit.

This one is so simple that many people totally overlook it, or they prefer to plug in a “grounding pad” and call it a day. I have nothing against grounding (aka “earthing”) devices, but they cannot replace the value of being barefoot on the ground. Swimming in natural bodies of water, walking barefoot on the beach and hiking in natural settings are also good ways to directly, energetically connect to the earth. If you are hiking in boots, stop often and touch a tree or plant with your bare hands.

Connect Your Heart to the Heart of the Planet

Through the process of energetically connecting our heart to the heart of the planet, we get deeply grounded in a very powerful, stable way. To me, this is the most potent form of grounding, although it works best when used in conjunction with the above steps. However, don’t let the fact that you are in a high rise building, or that it is too cold outside to put your bare feet on the ground stop you from doing the simple process described below. It can be done anywhere, even if you are flying in an airplane.

Before we get to the process, I want to mention the curving energy lines used here. While it is more simple to visualize a straight line of energy, I have learned that curving lines of energy are more natural and more aligned with our foundational reality as Sovereign extensions of Source than straight lines of energy, which tend to be more mechanistic and synthetic.

Again, I could go on at length here, but I will keep it brief and use a picture to serve as a visual aid for this concept.

Heart to Earth Core Grounding

My Simple, Daily Grounding Focus

• Close your eyes and take some slow, deep breaths. Center yourself in the present moment.

• Focus on your heart and visualize the energy of your Sovereign Inner Self growing large and bright.

• Send a beam of gently curving energy out of the left side of your chest that goes downward into the earth.

• Visualize this energy gently curving in a long elliptical arc, eventually connecting into the left side of Earth’s core.

• As you make this connection to Earth’s core, mentally (or out loud) say to the Earth, “Hello and thank you for supporting my human experience.” (It can be anything with heartfelt gratitude.)

• Visualize another curving line of energy emanating from the right side of Earth’s core, gently curving up to eventually connect into the right side of your chest.

• Spend a few moments enjoying the feeling of connecting and synchronizing your heart center to the heart of the planet.

• State your intention to keep yourself fully, deeply grounded and connected into Earth’s core.

• Open your eyes and go on about the rest of your day in this deeply grounded state.

I highly recommend that you repeat this several times during the day whenever you have a spare moment. It only takes a couple of minutes, and with practice over time you will be able to maintain this connection throughout your day. Even if you are 20 stories up off the ground in an apartment or office building, you can still do this simple process. In fact, it is even more important to do so in that type of environment than if you’re a woodland hobbit kind of person like me.

Grounding Physical Exercises

Ideally, when you are walking, standing or sitting barefoot on the grass (and after you have connected your heart center to the heart of the planet), you can do some physical exercise that will help you get more connected to your body. Again though, if you can’t be in direct contact with the ground, you can still do some grounding physical exercise. This can be just about anything that you like to do, provided that it does not make you feel “spacey” or too light-headed.

For example, those who are familiar with a set of exercises called the “Five Rites” could do those movements, but I strongly recommend that you omit the first spinning movement, at least for a while. This is because spinning can create a spacey, out of body feeling, especially in a person that is already ungrounded. Do the other exercises first for a while, then slowly, very slowly, add in a little bit of spinning. Just make sure to ground yourself after the spinning portion, and if it takes too long, do less spinning (or none) next time.

If you are into yoga, do a combination of easy and mildly-challenging movements, but omit any extended pranayama at first, for the same reasons as omitting the spinning. If you are not into any of the above, just do some planks, push-ups, bodyweight squats, go hiking, or anything else you enjoy doing, making sure that you stay within your body’s limitations. Pushing the body too hard while exercise can also be ungrounding, so if you feel your body asking for a rest, then rest! 🙂

A Grounding Diet

While I don’t think a “perfect diet for all humans” actually exists, I have found that incorporating organic root vegetables and organic greens into a calorie-dense diet can help with efforts to get fully into the body and be grounded. The root vegetables are pretty self-explanatory, they grow underneath the ground, and they help pass along some of that groundedness to us when we eat them.

Greens are grounding due to their mineral content, but I must stress the importance of combining root vegetables and greens with calorie-dense foods. Any type of caloric restriction can be very ungrounding for a person, even when the diet is high in micronutrients, so it is important to have both micronutrient density and caloric density in one’s diet.

This means eating things like rice, potatoes, sweet potatoes (hey, those are root vegetables, too!), avocados, eggs, coconut oil, butter, other dairy products and (real) honey regularly. It can even mean having some ice cream once in a while (yay!). Organic is always preferable, but don’t stress out over having a perfect diet, as that stress is worse than eating non-organic food.

Also, put as much (natural) salt on your food as you want. Salt could take up a whole article on its own, but the short version is that natural, minimally processed salt is good for you, so don’t restrict it. (Himalayan salt, Redmond “Real” salt, Celtic sea salt, etc.)

Just for clarity: Please do NOT just eat root vegetables and greens, because you will not have enough caloric density to support a strong metabolism, and you will end up ungrounded, hungry and feeling cold all the time without sufficient calories. For those of you who eat meat, try to get organic / grass-fed whenever possible. Those of you who don’t eat meat will need to make sure you are getting plenty of calories from other sources.

Awareness is the Key

The main key to being energetically present in your body and grounded is awareness and being conscious of how you feel as you move through life. These are a few indicators that you are not fully present in your body and ungrounded: Feeling spacey, difficulty focusing on one task, easily losing track of conversations when others are talking, misplacing your keys/ phone/ spouse/ child/ dog/ etc., poor coordination, forgetting something that happened just moments ago, etc.

If you notice any of those things happening, or anything else specific to you that you know is an indication of being unpresent / ungrounded, get tuned into your Sovereign Self via your heart center and connect your heart to the planet’s heart via the simple process above.

If you can incorporate the physical grounding practices into your daily life as much as possible and do your energetic grounding work, you will notice many positive benefits including an increase in your capacity for holding and utilizing energy in your body. This will allow you to do more intense types of energy-work without getting ungrounded in the process.

I hope the information and techniques in this article are helpful for you. I thank you for your support, presence and attention. For those of you who have emailed me and didn’t receive a reply, please know that I do read every email, but I cannot reply to them all, and I am currently backlogged on email replies by almost a week.

Much Love,

THE EARTH PLAN: “Just….Surrender”

This is my personal friendly advice to anyone who feels the same way….

I’m already feeling the effects of the next wave/cycle. It’s a no-nonsense-take-no-prisoner type of energy ~ of course I’m being dramatic but you get what I mean.

So just surrender to it. Which is what I’m going to do right now.

Namaste and Blessings!
