Complete Rootedness

This can be very useful when there is a sense of dislocation in our energy – such as too much head activity or when grounding is difficult because of strong thoughts or emotions.

Begin by taking a moment to relax body and breath.

Allow awareness to follow the gentle pull of gravity.

Allow the roots of your awareness to expand from all parts of your body.

First, feel the roots of energy grow and spread from your toes and feet. When this process is underway, move your attention up the body.

Allow the roots to descend from the base of your spine. Really feel your awareness root into the ground as if it were a continuation of your physical blood and nerves.

Feel the weight of your fingers and arms. Roots of awareness and secure, grounded energy grow from them, down and out into the earth.

Feel your chest and back expand and contract as you breathe. Roots shoot from them simultaneously and lock your energy deeply into the ground.

Now roots of energy awareness spread over your head and from all your senses. You can feel them expand outwards into the earth from your ears, from your eyes, from your tongue, from your mouth and from the very top of your head.

Awareness from the whole of your body now extends and reaches down and around to create a total rootedness and groundedness to the earth.

Take time to focus on those parts where it seems more difficult to visualise the roots extending outwards.

When you are ready, gently allow the visualisation to fade and bring yourself back to your physical body.

Tree: Roots and Branches.

This simple visualisation allows grounding and centring before then opening up awareness to more universal types of energy.

Begin by relaxing your body. Allow awareness to sink downwards to your contact with the ground.

Extend your awareness beyond the physical body to make searching roots that spread deeper and wider with each exhalation. Continue this process until you feel really secure and well-rooted.

Now with the intent to hold that sense of rootedness, focus on the top of your head. Feel the energy of the sun and the vast spaciousness of the universe gently drawing up your energy. Mould that expanding energy into the form of boughs and branches, growing in an ever-widening dome upwards and outwards.

Once you have a clear sense of these spreading branches, see if you can maintain in your awareness both the root system below your feet and the branches above your head. If it helps, you can visualise your body as the tree trunk holding in place and focusing the energy of root and branch.

When the imagery is comfortable and stable begin to sense and integrate the energies that each outgrowth of your awareness is receiving and releasing into its surroundings.

When it is time to stop, allow the imagery to fade and sit still to integrate the experience before resuming normal activity.
