I can’t PM yet so here goes…
Grounding is wicked important for any type of magickal/energetic work. It really is the first thing you should learn in order to keep yourself safe and prevent risk of insanity.
There are many, many methods for grounding. I’m going to give you some simple yet effective ones.
As with anything in magick, feel free to modify these to suit your personal style.
You can do this anywhere. You can be sitting, standing, lying down, on the toilet…it doesn’t matter.
Pull energy down from the heavens, through your head, and into your chest. Pause. Feel the energy. Push it down through your body, out through your “nether regions” or your legs, down into the earth. See it shoot down past the foundation of your environment if you’re indoors or straight into the dirt if outdoors, through the layers of sediment, through the earth, mingling with the deep roots of trees if applicable, down down down.
Breathe, and feel yourself firmly rooted into the planet.
You are now grounded. When you’ve completed your meditation, spell, etc, simply reverse the energy. You will once again be untethered and free to walk about in your meatsuit.
Similar to the above but with more of a creative visualization technique.
Concentrate on your body. Imagine yourself becoming a tree. See and feel your branches spreading wide. Be aware of the ability to observe your surroundings in 360 degrees (this is how a tree “sees”). Feel your strong trunk, your bark, your agelesness. Feel your legs becoming roots. Be aware of how deep they go into the world. You are a very old tree and your roots are deep indeed.
You are now grounded. When you’ve completed your thing, pull the roots back up. Slowly morph from tree back to your human self.
If you can get your hands on pretty much any kind of black stone, that can help. Obsidian, onyx, and so on. Keep it in your pocket or the palm of your hand. I walk around during the day with an Apache Tear in my pocket just to make sure I don’t float off in the middle of a meeting. =)
