So much energy is shifting on the planet. Earthquakes (small and big ones) are happening daily. Solar flares are happening daily. And as for us, many people are getting horribly sick, feeling out of sorts and having frequent bouts of anxiety, aches and pains, vertigo, sleepless nights, and just not feeling right.
Depending on where you are on your path of ascending, you may be feeling these symptoms intensely or really not at all. We have found, that the younger your age, the better able you can handle it. It is our older generation who are stuck in a slower frequency with unhealthy habits that are feeling the brunt of the shifts.
We have written several blogs about grounding (http://enlightenedindigochild.webs.com/apps/blog/categories/show/777496-grounding), and it is always a good idea to review these so that you can do as much as possible to feel well. But here is another technique that I recently learned in acupuncture school.
There is a point on the sole of your foot called Kidney 1. Kidney 1 is located in the depression of the sole, when the foot is in plantar flexion. It is approximately at the anterior third and the posterior two thirds of the line from the web between the 2nd and 3rd toes (the big toe is the 1st toe) to the back of the heel.
Kidney 1 Point
Basically, it is on the bottom of both feet, between the 2nd and 3rd toes, a third down the foot. It is a great point to know as it helps with calming your mind and getting back into your body. Most of us are in our heads too much. When you are in your head, you are constantly thinking. Your thoughts are in the future or past, not in the present moment. When you are in your body, you are in the present moment. To stimulate this point, you can use acupressure and hold down the point with your fingers, or press into in with a grounding stone, like obsidian or rose quartz.
Sometimes it is not possible to hug a tree or connect to Mother Earth. This is a good backup for those situations. Perfect for when you are anxious taking an exam or anytime you are feeling ungrounded.
Try it and see. I would love some feedback.
