Here we are with our fifth installment in the series on energy grounding. How do you know if your grounding worked? Keep reading and find out. In case you missed it, here’s what we’ve covered thus far:
Part 1: What is Grounding?
Part 2: What happens when you’re not grounded?
Part 3: Active vs. Passive Wasy to Ground
Part 4: How to Use a Grounding Cord
In this segment, we’ll look at a key factor: how to know whether or not your grounding worked/is working.
For starters, you’ll know the grounding worked because you’ll feel better instantly. Seriously, grounding works better than a glass of wine (and without the after-effects), better than a double espresso shot, better than a nap, better than a pill, and better than anything you’ve ever used in the past to help you chillax. It’s free, it’s quick, it’s 100% portable, and it works, period.
After grounding, you can expect to feel calm, centered, relaxed, and more equipped to deal with whatever situation is at hand. That’s not to say that you can just ground once in the midst of total chaos and be done with it. Depending on how you’re built, and how intense the situation you’re dealing with, you may have ground several times during a short span of time for full effect.
Context matters, right? For example, if someone cuts you off in traffic, you could probably do a quick chant or put a grounding song on the radio and be over it by the time song ends. But, if you’re already late for a second job interview for your dream career and someone cuts you off in traffic, causing you to miss your exit, then instead of quickie grounding and then driving like a maniac to make up time, you are likely going to need to pull over, take a few minutes to ground yourself, check the Waze app for a revised route to the appointment, and then call your future (hopeful) employer to let them know you’re running late and give your new ETA.
If you’re not sure whether or not your passive forms of grounding are working (as these may not provide as instantaneous feelings of calm as active forms of grounding), you can easily use Truth Testing to check in on that.
