Anyways, I did some meditation today to calm myself, get back into meditating, and clear my mind. This is right after I did a cleansing and added some new things to my altar. I did a lot of chakra meditation after to open and balance my chakras and plan to use the rest of the week to focus on my root chakra. After I finished focusing on my chakras, I uses a shamanic way to ground (I'm Wiccan and the page I found it on said it was a shamanic technique). While I was grounding, my head began to feel fuzzy and when I say back down after (I stood up for it) my legs felt weak. After this, I did some meditation to calm myself again, but now my head hurts. Keeping in mind that all I've had today is coffee with sugar, milk, creamer, and cocoa, half a mug of green tea with lime and honey, and a small handful of cheez its. Is this normal? I also don't ground myself as often as I should, but I am going to try to make a habit out of that. I would like thoughts, feedback, maybe even stories, and definitely tips. I am now off to go eat something by the way.
Okay, thank you Aeons_Wing. I wasn't asking about my food (I normally eat a lot first thing in the morning and I've been up since eight) I was only asking about the fuzziness. But thank you. I've now eaten two eggs with cheese on top and one of them had a twin yolk, just so you know. I'm hoping to be more grounded over all and I'm hoping that by opening my chakras and grounding will help with this. Thank you.
If you're not vegetarian, then some meats can also have a grounding effect.
There are such things as moving meditation, like yoga or tai chi, and I've actually found that those can work with everything you do: mindful walking, mindful eating, mindful dishwashing, just pay attention to how you feel when you're doing it, the experience of daily life. That's also another way of grounding.
Thank you, I'll make a note of that. And seeing as I just had some eggs I'm obviously not a vegetarian XD
But thank you for your tips and help. I've seen some of your posts in the forum and you always seem so helpful and such. Thank you.
(Just wasn't sure if you weren't one of those ovo-lacto... pescatarians that still somehow count as vegetarian.)
But yes, grounding isn't only about connecting with the earth on a metaphysical level. It's also about accepting the physical and material world. It could also be about getting back in touch with your instincts, or processing instinct-level fears instead of ignoring/repressing them.
Thank you. I'm a little materialistic as it is and I try not to be TOO materialistic. But I do love the earth and would like to be more connected. Honing my instincts and such seems like a good idea, for I've not much of a sense of my natural instincts, though sometimes I feel it, like when I choose crystals.
