Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Earth Magic Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer: Tree ~ Grounding.

Tree ~ Grounding: “Consider how trees, the Standing Ones, exemplify balance between heaven and Earth. Their branches reach out and up, as if in praise of the bounty that Sky Father has to offer. Their leaves breathe in carbon dioxide and breathe out oxygen – a vital process for so many beings on the planet, including humans. their trunks and roots have planted themselves firmly in the soil, allowing them to receive the gifts of another kind of nourishment from Earth Mother. In turn, they freely and gratefully give back by accommodating the needs of so many beings with what they have to offer.

In this image, we see a magnificent tree, situated in a meadow at the edge of a pond, greeting the early rays of light from the dawn. We see its reflection in the still water but do not see its roots, as they are embedded in the depths of the moist, fertile body of Earth Mother. The strength of these roots supports the tree’s innate desire to grow to the light, to reach not only upward, but outward as well.

You have been feeling scattered and spacey lately. You are not fully in your body, and that is because you have not been able to get grounded. this is quite literal in that your body is made of the materials of the Earth. So when you feel disconnected from your body, you are inevitably disconnected from Earth. So get yourself grounded. You can do so quite simply.

With your feet firmly planted on the ground wherever you are, feel the etheric roots that extend into the Earth. Follow your breath so that each time you exhale, you can imagine these roots going even deeper. Each time you inhale, draw up the loving, nurturing power of Earth Mother.

As soon as you have the chance, go outdoors and sit or stand with your back supported by a tree. Feel its solidness and integrity – it is simply being a tree. Breathe in the essence of the Tree Spirit, and allow this to fill you up. Walk barefoot very slowly on the ground so you can maintain this connection.“*

Many of the darker crystals such as black tourmaline, black obsidian, smokey quartz, hematite, shungite, jet and onyx can be use also as grounding aids. These stones can be used in meditation, carrying in a pocket or worn as a pendant or bracelet to help grounding on a regular basis. Each crystal should be cleansed and cleared of energy periodically. Every month I place all my crystal jewelry out in the full moon for an energy clearing and recharge. I use a Tibetan singing bowl or tuning fork every few days or whenever I have been in crowds, around anyone with lower vibrational or negative energy or have had anything particularly stressful happen. I can always feel the difference when I clear my crystals, and I find that they help clear me much more rapidly when they are cleared regularly.

Connecting with the Earth is something I am committed to doing every day of 2014. It’s one of my resolutions. It’s too easy to skip getting outside because of work and all the other obligations and responsibilities but a couple of months ago we adopted a dog, so not there is no excuse! We have favourite trees that we visit, hug and admire every time we walk and on New Years eve, just a few days ago, we went and “planted” crystals at the base of our three favourites, knowing that they are there every time we stop for a quick hug or a longer inner reflection. We call them the Magic Trees and they have a particular magic about them that can’t be denied. They are young pine trees that are just the right distance apart to hug them both at the same time, and when you stand right between them and look up, it looks like they connect together in the sky above. We have even seen the face of the green man in their branches, which remind us of fireworks against the sky; there is a perfect circle of young trees and we can feel their energy as we stand in the center.

Find your magic tree and make a concerted effort to get out there every day and give it a hug. Tell it your hopes and dreams, meditate beneath it with your back against it’s trunk. Feel the magic, it’s all part of our amazing connection to Gaia, Mother Earth, who generously shares her love with us every single day. It’s time for us to send some back to her.

Namaste

  • First of ɑll I want to say awеsߋme blog! I hɑd ɑ quick question that I’d lie to asқ if yоu don’t
    mind. I was iոterested to knjow hoա you center yourself and
    clear your thoughts before writinɡ. I haνe had a
    tough tme clearing my miոd in ɡettiոg my ideas out.
    I truly do take ρleɑsure in writing but it just seems like thе fіrst 10 tߋ 15 minսtes are genеrally
    lost jսst tryinɡ to fіgure out how to beցin. Any recommendations or tips?
    Thank you!

    • Hello Angelica, honestly, my life is a little nuts, busy busy! I just make the time to write cuz I really love it. It gets easier and easier, and I feel often that I am guided; sometimes I read it back and I am impressed with the words, I can’t take credit in this case, I am just the messenger! I believe that I am here to help as many people as I can to reclaim their inner strength and joy. This will help everyone and the planet. We are taught to be fearful, we are taught that we need to ask permission, that we need to follow the rules. I believe that we are much more powerful as individuals than we are lead to believe, and that when we realize this, and move forward in raising our vibration, we will strengthen the connection that exists between us all and the Divine. I suggest you just start writing and see where it goes, don’t let fear hold you back. It gets easier, you get more confidence, and you will find the message that you need to share with the world. Ask for Divine Guidance. Blessings, love and light! Namaste
