The Grounded Mind

This meditation will be focused on grounding the mind. 

You might already know if you are a person with an intellectualized ego, or you might be an Air sign: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius, or have a lot of Air signs in your chart. Or you might be a Virgo who has a very analytical mind. Maybe you have stress that keeps your brain constantly in a loop with your to-do list. Or you might be a person that is constantly trying to figure things out and understand through the mind, someone who can’t sit in the question / unknown very easily. These are all ok! :) There are some very brilliant thinkers, visionaries, and minds on the planet. And these traits, attributes and gifts can have their healthy place and pay offs. 

It’s only when the mind gets out of balance with the rest of your body that there can be a problem. Or when the brilliance of the mind is used to get out of just sitting with something, maybe a question or an emotion. This is ungrounding, because it pulls you away from your experience and goes to the head.

If you are one of those people that is ok. Todays meditation might both be a challenge for you and have a HUGE impact on you, leading you to a breakthrough. The most important thing is to surrender and own your experience. All you have to do is be aware of how the mind might be taking you out of your experience, and ungrounding you. Try not to control, but instead let go!
