Rooting to Let Mother Earth Soothe You
Rooting is a ritual that connects you with Mother Earth and lets you ground out negative energies into the Earth. Since the Earth is huge and able to absorb lots of negative emotions, this ritual is very grounding and can help you deal with stressful times and events. Basically, with this ritual you are flowing excess energies of any kind into the Earth and then pulling up grounding and nourishing Earth energies into your body. Here's how you do it.
1. Sit in a comfortable position making sure your heels are touching the ground. Some people find it useful to close their eyes for this ritual so if you find you have trouble "feeling" or sensing your "roots", try closing your eyes.
2. Feel yourself extending roots from your feet and imagine or "see" roots growing out of your heels into the Earth, through your shoes if you are wearing any, through the flooring, into the sub-flooring, and down into the Earth through the topsoil continuing down through all the layers until you reach bedrock.
3. Once your roots have reached bedrock burrow into it and lock them in.
4. Sit for several minutes breathing. Each time you exhale, push excess stress and tension or any other unwanted energies through the roots into the bedrock.
5. Each time you inhale, pull up minerals and energies from the Earth for stability and balance.
6. When you feel relaxed and nourished, pull the roots back up through each of the layers and going back up into your feet. Be sure not to stand up before pulling your roots back into your body or it can cause you to be sore for a few days.
You can use this ritual as much as you need to and don't need any special magical training to start using it right away.
