Salem's Elemental Meditations: Earth

Meditating to the element earth is a very grounding experience. Do you ever feel like your life is going by too fast? Perhaps you feel like life is out of control and you'd like to just hit the pause button for awhile. Meditating with earth can help us ground ourselves. It slows our perspective and allows us to slow our pace.

To meditate with Earth I like to find a tree to sit under. (No I don't go hug it. lol ) I like to pick a tree that is secluded. Try finding a tree that is somewhat secluded in the park if you live in the city. Though be aware of safety too! I wouldn't want you to be secluded and someone could take advantage of that.

I live in a small town so its no problem to find areas without a population and plenty of shady trees. Shade is important to me because I can't stand to be in the sun long! Take sunscreen with you. This way if you fall asleep while meditating you won't be burning your skin.
Do your breathing exercises, relax your mind and body. Allow the energy of mother earth flow through you. Run your hands through the grass if you like. Earth is grounding, relaxing, and comforting. These qualities remind us of our mothers which is why we associate the earth with feminine energy. If you are having trouble with reproductive organs this is a good time to seek healing.
I hope you enjoy meditating with Mother Earth.
Blessings, Love & Light,
