In yesterday’s post about centering I mentioned releasing and receiving as part of grounding into the Earth. I’ve found that some students who are already familiar with grounding techniques sometimes lose sight of the two-way flow of Earth energy. When we ground we stand in relationship to the planet, giving love, releasing what no longer serves us, and receiving love and support back.
I had a student who had tried many meditative techniques for releasing before our first session, and none of them ever worked for her. When we started working together, she was very surprised to experience release when I guided her through my process. I asked her what was different, and she said she had never thought to receive from Mother Earth before. It was feeling that support that allowed her to safely release what she no longer needed to carry.
