meditation for calming anxiety

A grounding meditation for calming anxiety and accessing the wisdom within

Oh September, you’re here already! And sure enough, you’ve brought a change of weather - both outside and in. The temperature is cooling down here in NY, while our schedules and routines are ramping up. Out with those warm, slow summer days. In with chilly winds, new projects, and longer days at the office.

For many of us, this abrupt change in pace gives rise to some anxiety. We feel mentally scattered as we try to develop a new routine, and overwhelmed with all the additional tasks we need to manage.

Well, it’s time to put your worries aside. In this video, I help you get calm and centered through a powerful, grounding meditation for calming anxiety. 

 

 

In Ayurveda (an ancient Indian health system) they teach that everything on earth, including our bodies, is made up of 5 elements: earth, air, fire, water, and ether. When the 5 elements are in balance, then we are healthy, both mentally and physically.  But when they become out of balance, we become unwell in a variety of ways, depending on which element is out of balance.

When we feel anxious, that is often indicative of our earth element being out of balance. In our bodies, the earth element is associated with the first chakra, known as the Muladhara or the root chakra. It is located at the base of your spine. This element and chakra are associated with security, safety, and stability. When the earth element is balanced, you feel confident, grounded, flexible, safe, resilient, and strong. An imbalanced earth element can cause anxiety, paranoia, fragility, moodiness, and forgetfulness.

Unsurprisingly, one of the best ways to bring the earth element into balance is to connect directly to Mother Earth - the soil, the plants, and all the is firmly rooted below us. Therefore, in this meditation, we use the image of a majestic tree to get in contact with the energy of the earth.

 
So prepare to embrace the change of seasons (or really any changes your life may come upon) through this amazing 10-minute practice. And always remember: grounding yourself is the first step in finding yourself.
