A friend recently emailed me to say: “Reading the news really raises my blood pressure.” Another shared that she can’t watch without yelling back at the television. Several others have shared that they have been feeling down and unable to sleep at night.

In summer, I have a greater sense of my own inner aliveness and connection to the flow of the spiritual energy that animates all of life, which itself seems to run freer, burn hotter and grow wilder than at other times of year. Do you feel that way, too?

“Summer, after all, is a time when wonderful things can happen to quiet people.

Like volatile chemicals under pressure, energies that are pushed down may emerge in unexpected and unwanted ways or explode.

Grounding helps you to:

  1. Be more fully present.
  2. Feel stable and centered.

  5. Bring your imagination down to earth, give it form, and manifest your dreams!

We access Earth energy through chakras in the soles of the feet and the root chakra at the base of the spine. Here’s how you can ground your energy:

Considering travel destinations for your next vacation?
 
If, like me, you live in an urban environment—where the arid canyons of stone streets and tall buildings, coupled with the routine of a daily grind, leave you feeling that life is devoid of a heartbeat and lacks spontaneity—well then, a trip to a tropical rainforest may be just the perfect outer adventure to transform your inner life.
 
Why? Because experiencing the magic, power and beauty of the rainforest can awaken the pulse of life within. Wild and unrestrained, the rainforest throbs with the energy of existence.
