We are spiritual beings in physical bodies. There must be a balance between the spiritual and the physical.
The weight of trauma and external stressors can overstimulate our nerves, making the soft edges of our spirit want to disassociate and retreat. That weight hangs overhead like a stormcloud, making it more and more difficult to come back into ourselves.
Even spiritual work can leave you too “top heavy” - you know that spacey, floaty, anxious, dazed, out-of-body and disconnected feeling? These are all symptoms of being ungrounded. If you notice you:
- Have trouble focusing
- Clumsy, bumping into things, stubbing toe
- Dizzy, light-headed
- Spaced out, fuzzy, daydreaming
- Get lost easily
- Losing track of what you were about to do or say
- Forgetful, misplacing your keys, etc
Remind yourself that your body is your home right now. Remind yourself that you belong in this world, on this plane, in that beautiful body you call a home. Remind yourself you are here for a reason. Your existence is not by chance.
