Tips for grounding and protection
When opening and closing tarot readings, there is a need to have some quick and effective ways to clear yourself. Grounding and protection techniques vary by culture and person, and everyone has their own that become their favorites. Here are a few that work for almost everyone!
What do we need protection from?
Energy that is not your own, even if it is exciting or joyful, will eventually cause you to feel off center. If the energy you are merging with is trauma, sadness, grief, or confusion, you can actually begin to manifest some of the mental and physical symptoms of the people you are helping. This can eventually lead to emotional upsets, “karmic” states, and more.
Empaths and energy readers in particular tap into the emotional states of others and often feel their pain as strongly as they do. It’s one of the ways they can know what’s going on and what people are going through. So how does one open up and merge with the energies of people on earth or in spirit and still remain sane and in control?
Set the tone
How do you absorb psychic information without picking up problems? The simplest ways are usually the best. Before a reading it is good to have an opening routine such as a prayer, an invocation to love higher beings, a candle to light and time to just center yourself by taking a deep breath. These actions bring the energy to read to a higher, clearer level and help you “come” from the place where you are channeling the highest spiritual good for the person asking your advice.
After the reading
When all is said and done, energies that are sometimes deep and lingering linger in your body and consciousness for a while simply because you have effectively opened up to the situation. You know what’s going on with your client, and some of it is difficult to deal with or they wouldn’t ask for advice.
Effective Grounding Techniques
There are many great grounding and protection techniques out there, and most tarot readers have their favorites. Using your intuition is a natural art, so it makes sense that sometimes the things that work best are the things that come closest. Here are some effective and easy ways to use your everyday environment to cleanse and close down after a reading.
grounding and protection
Whatever the weather, get outside for a few minutes. There are few situations where the weather is so cold or so hot that this is impossible. Find some grass and walk or sit directly on it. Look at flowers and leaves, for what we look at we merge with.
Focus all of your attention on a special leaf or flower. Watch it closely and ask it to fill you with healing energy. If you don’t have such things in your outdoor environment, indoor plants can do the trick. It’s about being alive and green. Green is the auric color of healing. Rocks and crystals also work. They belong to the natural mineral kingdom. Have her close and hold her tight, letting her energy sink into your system.
If you live near trees, this is one of the best ways to ground and cleanse.
Place the sole of your foot against the base of the tree trunk and allow spent energy to drain into the earth. Earth will turn it into something better. Then thank the trees for helping you in this way. They are the most gracious things on earth!
If actually touching a tree is impossible, just meditate on one in your field of vision. Visualize all energies that are not “you” being pulled down the tree trunk into the earth where they are grounded and transmuted into love.
grounding and protection in the air
Breathe deeply and evenly at the beginning, middle, and end of the reading. Go outside when the air is fresher. Get some exercise, enough to fill your lungs with fresh air.
make affirmations. They come from the mental element of air. Acknowledge complete healing of mind, body and spirit to your caller. See mental clarity and peace for them.
Water grounding and protection
If it’s warm enough where you are, stand in the rain for a minute or two. Look up and let it fall on your face and eyelids. Have a nice towel ready. A shower does the same. In the shower, acknowledge that any energy that doesn’t belong to you goes down the drain. Visualize the color of your aura coming out of the shower head. Even just washing your face and hands after a reading can be helpful.
Drink plenty of quality water before, during, and after reading. This keeps your energy clear. Fill a glass of water with loving and grateful energy by holding it between your two hands. Imagine going into the water. It will taste delicious!
Fire grounding and protection
Take a few minutes to gaze into a candle flame or log fire. This will eliminate depression, sadness, and the stupid kind of anger that we all fall prey to from time to time. The sun itself is powerful, the fire element purifies. Never look directly at the sun, but when the sun is shining, look at a sunny patch of land or sky and really take in all of it. This works especially well at sunrise or sunset when the colors are so vibrant.
Cleaning the tarot cards
A good way to clean tarot cards is to lay them out open in a row on a sunny windowsill. Leave them there for a few minutes or even overnight if possible. The sun does the work!
The Difficulty of Spiritual Grounding and Protection
It’s hard to remember to make ground after a reading. That means if the phone or doorbell rings, delay the “pick up” until you’re grounded. If that’s impossible, interact with the person or situation and then immediately go back and ground.
With all your psychic and telepathic centers wide open, you are vulnerable to any stray influence, good or not so good. Never make any significant decision until you are grounded and sanitized. You may be doing this with “someone else at the wheel” and the results may not be what you want.
Protect your positive vibes
Experiment and find out what works best for you! By making these techniques and your own favorites a part of every opening and closing, you will stay sane and safe on your spiritual journeys.
