Grounding and Protecting


Whenever I work with clients, whether it be on a workshop or on a one to one basis, I always teach them, or if they already know, then emphasise  the importance of making sure that their energies are protected and that they are grounded too.

If you are not sure what I mean by these terms then here is how I like to think about it.


As you know everything on this earth is made up of energy, all vibrating at different levels or frequencies.

Even people vibrate at different levels; miserable, sad, grumpy and negative people vibrate on a much lower energy than the ones who are always happy, jolly, positive and loving and living life to the full.

You can be influenced by the earth’s energy and that of the moon too.

You can become influenced by the energy around you and this can cause you to feel flaky, floaty, flighty, off kilt, in other words off balance.

The act of grounding is a really simple exercise that can have immediate results and you can start to feel better and more settled right way.

Sometimes you don’t realise just how ‘off kilt’ you are feeling until you start to ground yourself.


Ways to Ground

Here are some quick and easy ways to ground yourself.  They can be done at any time.   I tend to do mine daily, at the start of the day.  However sometimes I need to top up during the day depending on what I am doing and what I am being exposed to.

  • Sit in a chair with your feet firmly on the ground and imagine that from the soles of your feet you sprout roots.  Thick roots, like a  tree’s roots.   Imagine that these roots go down, deep  into the ground and spread out wide.    Take a few moments just feeling your energies ground.
  • Stand barefoot on the grass, paving, or on the beach for a few minutes.  And feel your energies going down into the earth.   This is particularly good if you do it at night whilst looking at the stars.
  • Drink water.
  • Drink water whilst standing outside.
  • Do some gardening.
  • Go for a walk in the woods or countryside.
  • Spend some time by the ocean, a river or a body of water.  Again if you can go barefoot even better.





This is very important for us all.   It helps to protect our energy from the influence of another person’s energy.

For example, we all know the type of person who likes nothing more than to moan and complain and drain down on everyone.  You know the type – the glass half empty type.

They spending time talking to you, moaning and complaining about this and that.  All of the time they are in your wonderful and vibrant energy, soaking it up whilst you listen patiently to their latest woes and dramas.  After a while they stroll off, full of the joys of spring and your fantastic vibes, having dumped their negative energy on you and leaving you feeling depleted and shattered.

Or worse still, you may know someone whose energies really don’t feel nice or right at all.  You perhaps cannot put your finger on it, but they may make you feel uncomfortable or ill at ease.

Well if you do a simple protection exercise every day (at the same time as doing your grounding) then this will help to protect your energies, it will stop them being zapped by other people.

You can also top this up whenever  you need to, throughout the day.  For e.g. if you see someone who you know leaves you feeling worse for wear, then top up as you see them approaching you.  They won’t see you do it, or indeed know what you have done.  But they will leave you wondering why they don’t feel like they normally do when they have been in your company.

Ways to Protect Your Energy

  • Imagine that you put a cloak around yourself, which drapes to the floor.  Pull the hood up and drop a veil over your face.  So that you are completely covered by the cloak.
  • Imagine that you are wearing a suit of armour, which completely covers your body and face.   I particularly like this one if I think that people are talking about me behind my back.  I imagine that their comments are like little arrows that they are firing at me.  As they hit my armour they ‘plop’ to floor without getting through to me.  It is most satisfying.
  • You can imagine standing in a giant crystal that protects you.
  • You can imagine wrapping a large bubble around you to protect you.   Or use bubble wrap.
  • Imaging white light around you protecting you.
  • You can visualise standing in a funnel of light or crystal, which completely covers you.
  • Or pulling a sheath of light up from your feet to the top of your head, which protects you.
  • You can call in Archangel Michael to protect you.  He will always come in straight away to do it – especially if you are feeling particularly vulnerable or ill at ease.


Crystals  are also good for protecting you and your home from negative energies, including those emitted from PCs, laptops, mobile phones and tablets.

Some that I can recommend are:

  • Black Tourmaline
  • Black Obsidian
  • Hematite
  • Jet
  • Turquoise

Energies in the home

If you think about it anyone coming into your home can be bringing in negative energy with them.  They can pick it up from other people and bring it in with them.

So it is important to clear the build up of stale energy in your home.  You can do this as often as you like and I highly recommend that you do it at least two or three times a week.


Methods of Protection


You can do this by burning incense (Sandalwood) or white sage, or if you prefer you can use the following aromatherapy oils in a burner or diffuser:

  • Juniper
  • Rosemary
  • Sandalwood

You can also purchase special sprays for your room too.  These are useful if you are holding an event in a hotel conference room or meeting room and you cannot burn incense, these will clear the air for you.

You can also ask Archangel Michael to protect your home and everyone in it.  And he will do so for you with pleasure.

I hope that you have found this useful.  If you have any questions at all then please do let me know.
