Feeling anxious and depressed?
Always putting yourself down, doubting and second-guessing yourself?
Can't seem to quiet your "mind-chatter" or "monkey-mind"?
If so, then these are signs that you're mentally and emotionally ungrounded.
But what do you do when your own worst enemy is in your head?
Watch this week's 10-minute love letter, which is the third of four video messages covering the power of Grounding for improving and maintaining the health of your empathic energy system.
"I'm too afraid to even try meditating."
This week in particular we are on week three of four in a deep dive around what is grounding and how to really live a grounded life.
Last week we spoke about physical grounding, knowing the symptoms of being physically ungrounded.
Now that was only a partial list. A complete list is here in my "Natural Intuition Now" book. It's much more comprehensive. We have list after lists of more and more things to look out for, so go ahead on Amazon.com, order that. That's book one by the way for beginners, "Natural Intuition Now" book one. It's on Amazon.com. In two days it'll be at your doorstep if you've got prime.
So for today in particular we are talking about emotional and mental grounding.
Last week we looked at making sure that we're cleansing so that we're physically connected to our nature so that our bod's an open channel for allowing empathic energy to flow to and through us, not getting clogged up even on a physical level, right?
For emotional and mental symptoms of being ungrounded, what that looks like is anxiety, depression, racing repetitive thoughts, negative self-talk, a pessimistic mindset, really set against understanding or being open-minded, like having a closed mindset.
These are symptoms of being mentally and emotionally ungrounded. Why?
Because on a mental and emotional level, you're going against your nature.
So having pent up feelings for example and not being able to be emotionally accessible or expressive is also symptoms of being emotionally ungrounded.
Remember, being grounded is being connected to our nature, our zero, our neutral set point.
How can we, this week in particular, get more connected to being emotionally and mentally grounded? Maybe you do have the racing thoughts. Maybe it's hard for you to focus naturally, right? There's just so much going on in your head.
I've even had clients where, "Victoria, I don't even want to try meditating because I don't know what I'm going to find once I start digging." I don't know, they'll have this fear which is another symptom of being emotionally and mentally ungrounded. So what exactly can we do?
Now there are many things that you can go about that. Again in the book there's list after list after list of things that you can do for emotional and mental grounding, but this week in particular my guides are saying the technique to observe yourself in this week is around your relationship with time.
Time actually doesn't exist. Time is emotion.
Time is emotion. Sure, there's like a clock, right?
I watch the clock and stuff while I'm speaking to you or holding space for the sessions here so I can be the time goods to keep you grounded emotionally however is why I do that, because how stressful does that feel, how much negative emotion comes up when people are running over or someone is taking up more of your time.
How refreshing emotionally does that feel when we're ending even on time or even just a little bit early so there's just enough for me to get up, stretch myself, and release we were just doing.
How compressed does the emotion feel when it's a tense environment? How compressed as in slow moving does time move when the air in the room is tense?
Maybe there's an argument at work or maybe at home there's a lot of stress in the environment. All that emotional, thoughtful tense energy causes things to creep along. Whereas if we're happy, we're rocking out, we're having a good time, a party, wherever. Suddenly time flies.
Time is emotion.
So this week in particular the guides are suggesting, take it or leave it, take your time for emotional and mental grounding.
When you're trying to express yourself, make sure that you pause powerfully, allow yourself space to gather your thoughts, to arrange your ideas.
Also allow yourself emotional space as in making time for, if you have some negative emotion such as grief, frustrating, giving yourself time for expressing that in the right kind of safe environment for you.
But this week in particular it's making time because if you are rushing, you're actually ungrounding yourself mentally and emotionally.
That's why it's harder to focus when you feel rushed actually because you're ungrounded. You're moving against your nature. Slow down and take your time this week in particular.
By the way, we have other love letters called Pause Powerfully and Slow Down. I've done so many love letters over the last few years. So you can do YouTube searches just to check those out for a little bit more on those topics.
But I'm hearing the Oracle Cards for this week in particular calling out in the energy and let's see.
Who are we going to ... I'm hearing Goddess Guidance, another Doreen Virtue deck, one of 20 and counting. Thank you by the way for all of your wonderful gifts and donations. More than half the Oracle Card decks here at the Dojo have been donated. I am so grateful for all that love and abundance. Thank you. Thank you. Always open to receive.
So let's check this out. Goddesses, what do we need to know right now about emotional and mental grounding this week?
Oh! Abundancia, Prosperity. The universe is pouring its abundance out to you. Be open to receive.
Now I don't know if like the camera is backwards when you're looking at this, but this is such a powerful message to receive around emotional and mental grounding.
You have an abundance of time. There's always more. There's an infinite supply, right? Thinking abundantly helps you to relax.
Having an abundant mindset opens up your energy and connects you more to nature. Does a tree ever think twice about growing its leaf? No.
It just allows the abundance of air and chemicals to pass through it, and it continues producing, reproducing in that cosmic dance of life.
Abundance. Having an abundant mindset is so powerful for allowing yourself to feel more emotionally and mentally grounded.
