In order to keep ourselves in good energetic balance as healers we need to develop a daily routine for keeping ourselves centered and grounded. The following techniques are a couple of my favourites:

This technique using the colours of the chakras is quick and easy to perform before giving an energy healing or at any other time you need to feel more centred.

Standing with feet slightly apart, imagine bringing red light (base chakra colour) from the earth and up through all the chakras, streaming out from the crown and flowing down the outside of the body to the feet. You will now be encased in rich, glowing red.

Repeat this procedure for each of the other chakras in the following order, allowing each new colour to be drawn up from the earth and cascade down the outside of the other colours around the body to the feet:

Orange (sacral chakra)
Sunshine Yellow (solar plexus chakra)
Emerald Green (heart chakra)
Sky Blue (throat chakra)
Indigo Blue (third eye chakra)
Violet (crown chakra)

Then imagine drawing up liquid metal gold from the earth, up through all the charkas, then allowing it to flow in a fine line down the outside of the other rainbow colours. Hear the metallic “clink” as the gold locks under your feet, encasing all the colours inside it. Now you are protected in a gold eggshell. Visualise merging all the rainbow colours around you into brilliant white light. Notice how calm, balanced and centred you feel.

With practice the colours can be drawn up through the body on the in-breath and cascade down the outside on the out-breath, making this procedure very quick.

When doing healing work to clear energetic blocks and to raise the vibration either for yourself or others, it is very easy to become ungrounded. This may manifest as feeling tired and washed out, vague and unfocused or “off with the fairies”.

It is advisable before starting any healing session to imagine roots, like tree roots, extending from the soles of your feet deep into the earth to anchor you firmly there. Imagine the root system becoming quite complex and reaching all the way down to the molten core of the earth. You may even like to imagine your feet are buried in soil up to the ankles.

At the conclusion of the session just reinforce the roots from your feet are still going into the ground. If you are working with someone else you may also like to visualise roots coming from their feet at the end of the session to help ground them, as well as brushing their legs down firmly towards the feet.
