How to Ground Yourself

Here are some ways that you can ground yourself:

The first thing that you can do is to put your hand over your head and to ground your crown. This can be done by making sure you aren’t distracted and by closing your eyes so you can concentrate.

Grounding the Feet

This is helpful and you can do it when you are sitting or standing. Be aware of how your feet feel and any kind of different feelings that you have.


Breathing is a great way to ground yourself. Allow the air to come into your body and into your lungs. After you do that, let the air come out of your mouth. As you do this, pay attention to how you are breathing and how it calms your mind.

Be a Tree

One thing that you can do is to pretend that you are a tree. Keep your body held up high and straight and rest your hands at your side or over your stomach. Let all the weight of your body go to your feet and let the energy move from your body to the ground under you.

Shower or Bath

You can take a cold shower or a cold bath in order to:

  • Build your immunity.
  • Get rid of fat.

Start this by having a cool and then warm shower and then as you do this for a few weeks, make the water colder and stay in it longer. This can help to ground you and is great if you have high blood pressure.

Grounding with the Earth

The body is full of energy and there are currents that are constantly moving through your body. The energy that you have is your human biofield.

This is energy that is also called prana and the qi in Chinese medicine, and it is part of your life force that goes in and out of the body.


The qi of your body comes from the qi of heaven and earth. This is energy that comes from the planets and the sun and then energy that goes into your body. The earth will help you to make sure that this energy is strong by recharging it with lightning and solar movements.

Connecting to the Earth

There are things that you can do to help reconnect you with the earth and you can start this by removing your shoes that have rubber insoles when you are on the earth.

Be a Tree

Make sure that you try the above technique of standing like a tree. This can help you if you do this barefoot.
