How to ground your energy for protection

As energetic beings, it is important to ground, center and protect your energy, especially, if you are an empath…

When we are empaths or sensitive to other people’s energy, its is even more important to ground and protect yourself, daily. It’s also important to ground yourself after a healing or an attunement.



Grounding Your Energy 

Grounding your energy keeps you present and in the moment. It completes the energy circuit while anchoring you energetically to the Earth below. Keeping firmly planted helps prevent feelings of fuzziness or spacey-ness that can often disburse your personal energy. Visualize energy passing from the root chakra to the center of the Earth, or roots sprouting from the bottom of the feet.

Take a deep breath, place your feet on the ground and your hands on your knees after you get up from bed, or sitting, put your hands on your knees and think of any negative energy going into the ground,  like roots of a tree,  far into the ground with a heavy anchor at the bottom. 🙂  Breath out all negativity into the ground. Wait a few moments until you feel less spacey and more grounded. Take a couple deep breaths and say, “I am grounded, and so it is.”

Visualize your feet being connected to the Earth, as if your feet are a tree being rooted to the ground. Intention is the key! You may also feel inclined to ground yourself at different times throughout the day by going barefoot, stomping your feet up and down repeatedly or going outside to walk in the grass or on the pavement.

Crystals such as hematite, tourmaline, and smoky quartz work well too. Not only do these crystals assist in grounding and protecting one’s energy, but they also dissolve negativity and harmonize mind, body, and Spirit. (We have an ethereal crystal attunement that can help, as well).  

You can also ground your energy by visualizing the Earth having a huge white heart of light in the center of it. Visualize an anchor of white light coming from your heart to the Earth’s heart grounding you in love and light.



Picture a white light or bubble around you with high intentions to protect you when you are in public or around a lot of people. Picture it in your mind’s eye as solid, and nothing negative can penetrate it. Do this daily or before going outside.


We have healings and attunements for further protection if this does not help enough. Let us know if you have any other questions on grounding or anything related to energy healing. 🙂 


Thank you, 

Love & Light
