I know I’m putting this as part three (please also read one and two in conjunction with this) but It’s probably the most important thing to practice once you are aware of your energy and have become accustomed to protecting it and maybe also noticing when you haven’t?
I also want to say that all of these energy posts are very beneficial even from a totally non spiritual perspective, energy is what we are made of, so just remember that even just the mood of another person is enough to change your mood. It’s all part of considering ourselves holistically and doing our best to look after our health.
❤ Ok so what does being ‘grounded’ mean?
When we are fully grounded we are totally in the present moment, it means we are connected to our feelings and our bodies. We feel focused and energised. Grounding is feeling connected to the earth element, so the feeling of being literally ‘on the ground’.
To illustrate this It might be easier to give some examples of what feeling ‘ungrounded’ could be like.
❤ How might I feel if I am ungrounded?
I want to share with you some thought practices I have been working on for the past week. I have felt such a huge positive response in myself that I’ve been dying to pass it on. This is by no means a new discovery but I feel that everything we learn and take in has to be practiced so it becomes our own truth, as opposed to someone else’s.
I believe the Universe looks after us, we have a path on which we are meant to follow, sometimes we go on and off it but there is a life purpose for everyone.
This is of course is dependent on if we allow this to happen, if we accept a sense of flow into our lives and be open to being guided. To allow the Universe to take the steering wheel we have to trust this to be true which can be the challenge for a lot of us. I believe fully in all of the above and totally trust the Universe has my back but I still struggle often to completely relinquish control.
This is the challenge word, and our challenge – to ‘let go’, we hear it and see it everywhere. We tell ourselves or people tell us a number of things such as – ‘Let go of things’, ‘Let go of control’, ‘Stop obsessing’, ‘Don’t think about that’ and so on. It sounds so easy, hey sure let’s just let go, woo, great! but doesn’t the idea of ‘letting go of control’ associate with the opposite which would be being ‘out of control’ which sounds so negative to me, the idea of being out of control, like we have no power over our lives at all, or that we are making ‘crazy’ choices, woah ‘she’s so out of control!’
It’s not like that.
When I think of letting go to the Universe it is like making a pact with my higher self that I will be open to being guided and… Read more

Ok, so the previous Energy post was about recognising that you have your own energy field and how other peoples emotions and the outside environment can change how you feel, hence doing the visualisations to keep your space YOUR space.
I want to help you to take responsibility for how you feel and to respect your body, mind and spirit. By learning how to recognise our emotions and how they make us feel and to become familiar with our own energy makes us able to cope with our day to day stresses more easily and happily.
So now that you have been practising recognising and protecting your energy field, what can you do to clear yourself if you notice that you feel a little energy drained?
❤ Some scenarios in which you might notice that you feel energy drained…

I have a lot of questions from people about energy protection and also notice myself offering advice to people because i notice when they are unknowingly taking on feelings and stresses from other people.
This piece is a basic introduction to thinking about yourself as an energetic being and I believe it is one of the keys to beginning to look after yourself in the way that you deserve.
I first started to really think about and consider my own energy as a physical and spiritual thing when I first moved to London about 12 years ago. Although I’d already for a few years been heading down towards my spiritual path I hadn’t really got to grips with my own space and how to look after myself.
❤ What is energy?
If you think about everything being made of energy, you, the floor, the table, your book, your pets, the trees and so on, so we are all connected, we are all made from the same stuff, you are me, I am you. You ARE energy.
Following on from this, becoming familiar with your own energy means that you then will consciously become more aware of other peoples and the energy of your environment around you.
This in turn can help you find it easier to understand how to cope in situations and also notice when and how you need to think about protecting your own space.
❤ How will I notice the effect of mine and others energies?
