Today I will post at this very late hour about Groundedness. There were a lot of words I could have picked for today that all sort of relate to the same thing…God, Grace, Ground. I find that as I live into any of these, they all find purpose and activity in my life.
For me, being grounded is essential to living out a happy and peaceful life day to day. Otherwise I spend way too much time thinking about the past and the future. But staying grounded in the present moment takes effort!
I have several spiritual practices to help me stay centered. Here are a few:
Meditation cultivates real stillness so that I can listen for the divine influence of Universal Love.
Journaling helps me to give words and “talk” out whatever is going on that feels off, irritating or upsetting. It is also an opportunity to free write or “take dictation” from that spiritual voice that we all have. Some call it an Inner Teacher. Some call it God. Others might say the Universe. You know the one, because you can’t ignore it!
I also take long walks almost daily (several times a week anyway) out in a park with my dog. It exercises my body, lets my dog exercise his body, and breathes in nature. I don’t know any better way to say that.
Do you have any spiritual or centering practices that help you stay grounded?
