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,

CASEY FRANCIS: “Tips For Aspiring Healers, Lightworkers, Teachers, And Shamans”

“I want to be a healer”

“I want to be a lightworker”

How To Be More Spiritual Tip: YOU ALREADY ARE!

By doing what you do in your day-to-day lives, you’re already helping people. You might not even realize it; but the smile and kind words you said to the clerk at the store may have changed their life. Just being your authentic self brings and grounds positive energy into the earth at all times of the day and night.

However, stepping into bigger roles does start with small steps. If we’re not trusted to simply be kind to the people we stumble across in our daily existence, why should we be trusted dealing with severe states of emotional, physical, mental or spiritual distress in others?

It seems quite logical that we must also be in the process of healing ourselves before we begin to fully understand and step into the roles and paths of becoming a healer or teacher; understanding at the very least the core principles of the modalities we decide to follow and how they have positively or negatively affected our lives before we decide to give this guidance onto others.

Let’s look at an example of someone recommending fasting, ketogenic or raw food diets because they’ve done a little bit of research on the topic and have been practicing it for 3 weeks with good results. Things like drastic diet changes have the ability to majorly affect all of our body systems, along with influencing our emotional and mental states due to hormonal and biochemical changes, especially over long periods of time.

  • Are they going to attain sufficient nutrition by following your plan for an extended period of time?
  • Will they receive enough macronutrients, micronutrients, vitamins and minerals to ensure their body will still function?
  • Are there any contraindications to someone partaking in this diet?
  • Do they have any diseases which may become worse through following this method?
  • Are they aware that they may experience headaches, dizziness, confusion, constipation, diarrhea, fatigue, muscle aches and hormonal changes as their body adapts to the new foods?
  • Have you seen positive changes to your own being from utilizing this method before?
  • What are some other physical or emotional particulars that they might note once they start on this diet?
  • How long should they remain on this diet for?
  • Are there any markers in health that they need to watch out for to know if they should stop this particular diet?

Choosing the right field is a process. For some, they will know straight away; for others, it may take time.

Sometimes we can become anxious to have a fresh start, to follow our purpose work or jump into our new life-path straight away — Which is great!

But before you dive headfirst into the first, second or third healing modality you come across and start teaching others about it, ask yourself;

  1. Am I doing what I’m preaching? Is this sustainable?
  2. What fruit am I bearing from the ways that I live?
  3. Are they in line with the teachings of whatever doctrine I am following?

“The proof of the spiritual pudding is in the manifesting”

Do you want to teach people how to attain mental mastery?

Firstly, ask yourself if what you’re teaching has actually helped you so far in your life to gain strength over the ever-flowing currents of the mind.

Do you want to give exercise or healthy eating tips?

Ask yourself if you could stick to the plans you’re giving out. Do they work? Have you tried them before?

Do you want to be an intuitive healer/reiki practitioner?

Are you physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually strong enough to handle the energies of anyone that comes in for a healing? Do you know how to ensure you’re not taking on the energies yourself?

Make sure that your decision to follow a healing path or teach others isn’t based on emotional wants, nor pride, nor greed.

Is it what your soul is driving you to do?
Are you being guided into this, or have some messages been a little mixed up along the way?

Did you miss something?

It is important to have some critical thinking, because although you have found something you enjoy whilst on a fresh beginning, it is vital to be sure you have checked your internal guidance system before you decide to invest a lot of your time and energy into it.

Understand that you are already a healer; you are already bringing light and guidance into this world — before you make any rushed decisions, ensure you’re choosing the right path.

Maybe there’s something far better for you to be investing your time in!

TANAAZ orever Conscious): “Feeling Foggy? An Energetic Perspective on Brain Fog”

brain-fog.jpg

We all feel foggy at times. This foggy energy can hang around us like a dark cloud, confusing our thoughts, making us feel lethargic and blocking us from our creativity.

Brain fog traditionally has been associated with a poor diet. In fact, if you have been suffering with brain fog and have not been looking at your diet, you may want to start there first.

Usually the common culprits for brain fog include- a diet that is either too alkaline or too acidic, gluten, sugar, preservatives and artificial colorings and flavors. Certain medications may also be linked to brain fog, so you may want to check with your medical professional to see if there is an alternative solution.

Drinking lots of water and getting plenty of sleep are also excellent strategies when faced with feelings of brain fog.

As you begin your healing journey with brain fog, it may also be worth considering that it can sometimes be caused by the energy frequencies around you.

At any given time we are dealing with three main energies or frequencies:

  1. The energy of mind, body and spirit
  2. The energy of your environment and other people
  3. The Divine energy or Universal energy

These three energy fields are always there for you to access, but during a period of brain fog, often you are stuck between the energy of your mind, body and spirit (self) and the energy of your environment (other).

In many ways, brain fog is what happens when you get stuck between your inner world and your outer world.

More and more I am hearing from friends and clients about this constant feeling of brain fog and it may also be due to the energy shifts that we have recently been experiencing.

Empaths and those sensitive to energy are also more likely to find themselves in the midst of brain fog, as they have the ability to really feel all of the energies and frequencies that are at play. This can be overly stimulating, which can also cause a foggy feeling.

If you are suffering from brain fog, here are some suggestions on what you can do-

1.) Diet First

Your diet is so important to your health and overall energy field. If your mind is foggy, it very well could be a sign that you need to detox or change your diet. If you are on a detox diet and feeling foggy, this could also be a sign of your body struggling to release toxins. If this is the case, keep drinking lots of water and perhaps try supporting your elimination pathways and digestive system.

2.) Cleanse Your Energy

If you are surrounded in fog you have to pay particular attention to your energy. Start by taking your hand and brushing the energy from around your energy field. Imagine your hand brushing away any fog or clouds that may be surrounding you. Once you have done this, imagine sprinkling healing light all over your body that is protective and nourishing. You can also use other aura clearing practices like smudging, flower essences and sound healing and so on.

3.) Cleanse Your Environment

The next step is to cleanse your environment. You can’t cleanse other people without their permission but you can send them blessings and you can cleanse your space.

Smudging is the best way to cleanse a space but if you are not a fan of the smoke, you can also use essential oil sprays or visualise a white light permeating through the room. If you have to deal with negative people, try wearing a protective crystal or visualizing yourself in a cocoon of white light.

4.) Spend Time in Nature

The fastest way to rebalance your energy and clear away any fog is to spend time in nature. Perhaps make the time to go up into the mountains or down to the water to recharge your batteries and release any stuck energy that is surrounding you. In fact, just 30 minutes of being deep out in nature is enough to notice profound healing effects.

5.) Creative Activities

If you are dealing with brain fog it may be that you are overthinking about something or obsessing about something. In order to help release any thoughts and to channel the energy of your brain into something more productive, try a creative activity like drawing, colouring or painting. Creative activities are also very calming and can help to ease an overactive mind.

Brain fog is one of those things that will come and go at different times in your life. From a metaphysical perspective, brain fog occurs when you get stuck in a particular field of energy.

To counteract this, all you need to do is pay attention to the energy around you and within you and take action to rebalance and center yourself. Usually through just being aware of this, it is enough to help shift things.

VERMEIR HANNELORE: “Fruit On Top – Raising Your Vibration Through Less Dense And Lighter Foods”

With Fruit On Top (2).png

by Vermeir Hannelore,
Guest writer, In5D.com

Is our common energy source, namely food, draining our energy? How can an optimal diet lift our frequency and alter our awareness?

Quantum physics teaches us that our physical world is not solid, but in fact a vast field of differentiating energy. It is our consciousness and attention that manifests and holds together fluctuating energy, letting us perceive things the way we see them. Corresponding, food is also a form of vibration.

Kirlian photography made it already possible, by capturing energy patterns, to visualize subtle energy fields around living and non living objects: e.g. the differences between organic and mainstream foods. Because every pasteurized, processed or cooked food has a diminished or deformed energy field, it points out visible evidence to the science of ‘living foods’.

Raw or living foods are defined by food that contains all enzymes. The act of heating food above 116 degrees F. destroys the enzymes, changes the molecular structure, and is thus categorized dead or toxic. The experiments of Japanese researcher Dr. Masaru Emoto also show how vibrations (i.e., thoughts, words and music) have an effect on the molecular structure of water, and thereby he also states water has a memory.

Fruits, in its botanical definition, and green leafy vegetables are the highest water-content living foods, with most of them containing water amounts over 85%. If we simply look at the first three basic needs for human life – oxygen, water and food – it makes sense that fruit (and green leafy vegetables) are essential in an optimal diet to keep us hydrated. Furthermore they hold structured water, a crystalline H3O2 (not H2O) found in all living organisms, which embodies stored energy from the sun and earth converted by the tree or plant. So it’s easy to understand the superior quality of organic and sun ripened fruit vs. non organic and GMO’s. Therefore we can also see that by eating meat, we step further away from this structured and stored energy. Because the animal eats the plant and transmute the energy to a less desirable form for human beings, which I believe are frugivores in essence. And needless to say the stored fear and negative emotions of mistreated or force-fed animals will also contribute to low vibrational ‘food’.

Fruit on the other hand is a perfect living structure, without any need for preparation. Additionally glucose is the key source of energy for the human body and brain, obtained by the breakdown of carbohydrates and most easily metabolized. Proteins, fat, and complex carbohydrates must be broken down to simple carbohydrates in order to be used as fuel. So why make our body lose energy by this often energy-intensive operation, while the purpose of food is to obtain energy? Why not receive it effortless from simple carbohydrates such as fructose/fruit sugar? And perhaps sometime we can bridge the spiritually gap to breatharianism and sungazing, when we are able to get all needed energy from breathing or looking at the sun alone? Even the famous physicist Nicola Tesla thought this was possible when he said: “Why should a living being not be able to obtain all the energy it needs for the performance of its life functions from the environment, instead of through consumption of food?”

Interesting to remark is that many spiritual truth-seekers ‘upgrade’ their diet from omnivore to vegetarian, vegan, raw foodist, fruitarian to even liquidarian. And this leads us indirectly to the law of attraction: like attracts like. If we as human beings vibrate at a certain frequency, and we attract whatever that frequency holds, this applies also to food. Note that if we are in love or simply feel positive, we are naturally drawn to higher vibrational foods or aren’t even hungry.

Trough my personal journey experimenting with diets due to digestive problems, I noticed I cannot tolerate cooked foods anymore. In the beginning this arose a lot of fear-based questions within myself that something had to be very wrong. After researching and learning from raw food pioneers, I started trusting and listening to my body again. By eliminating and simplifying my diet stepwise towards fruitarianism, my body had the opportunity to cleanse and heal itself (from previous toxic accumulation). And as a result I believe that when your body becomes more pure, it simply cannot hold lower vibrational foods and rejects it. Every symptom is also a wake up call for the body, telling us something is going on. And holistic health learns us to look at the cause instead of suppressing symptoms with common drugs or medication.

I also want to relate this to the metaphor of ‘peeling the onion’: peeling away all outer layers, makes it able to see the core. These layers can refer to certain belief systems, toxic relationships etc. but also buildup from ‘dead’ or acid foods. Referring this also to the ‘boiling frog anecdote’, where the premise is that a frog put suddenly into boiling water will jump out, but if put in cold water slowly brought to a boil, it will not perceive danger and be cooked to dead. Although several experiments on this anecdote contradict each other, I believe our body is smart and always adapting for the best. When toxins (of any kind) cannot be eliminated by our body, it produces mucus (or protective layers) to secure itself. And as natural hygiene teaches: toxemia is the cause of any disease.

So let’s wonder if we raise our vibration, maybe we can be sustained by less dense and lighter foods? And reversed: maybe we can alter our frequency not only by holding positive vibrations but also by slowly going up the higher-vibrational foods scale?
