-Grounding helps with maintaining a balance between our human perspective and the transcendental perspective
            -the intention of grounding is to anchor the soul's consciousness into the physical body.
            -Grounded is our natural state of being. As we grow up and our parents and the society try to civilize us, we internalize the idea that we are nor perfect not deserving of unconditional love, and we choke off the source of life energy that is meant to support us
            - Grounding is a necessary outflow, in contrast to the many inflows of energy into our systems
            - it occurs in the give-and-take of our daily activities. But we might need to use   specific techniques to ground ourselves if we have become over-charged
            - Grounding is absolutely imperative to master if you are interested in spiritual development

Grounding is working with the ground in one way or the other. It is the process whereby we do two things:
1) First, use earth energy to balance ourselves
2) Use grounding to clear unwanted aspects from our energy. Maintain an appropriate energy charge by releasing any energy which would constitute an excessive charge within the systems of the body, emotions, mind, etc.
