Why Spiritual Grounding is Important

Every time I would fly back home to Southern California, one of my best friends would tell me about the latest spiritual craze. Microdosing mushrooms on the full moon, smoking marijuana before, during and after a shamanic circle led by a certificate shaman. I would always take it with a grain of salt and ask about her feedback on all these types of hour gatherings.

“They’re okay. Last time the guy who led told us at the end he didn’t even want to be there. He could have not said that I mean what was that, right?” she scoffed over our Vietnamese vegan spring rolls. A ritual we would have when I come to visit.

Last I heard was that over ten thousand people come to Los Angeles from other parts of the States and the world to ‘make it’ in the music/movie/television industry. Ten thousand souls with a fraction who know who they truly are, what they want and whom are grounded in their integrity. The other part? Tumbling over and getting swept up with every gust of wind because they are not grounded in who, what or where they are.

I mean, how many of us were in our twenties, right?

I think it’s really cool that more people are aware and knowledgeable about shamanism and astral traveling and the like, but at the same time, these are subjects not to be played around with. The invisible world holds within it maps and keys to our destinies but to get to the treasure, you need to have a map, an experienced guide, and the want to continue it through.

Did you know that there were long queues on Mount Everest last year and because of the inexperienced climbers, 2019 was the deadliest year in history for Mount Everest? With not much training and without a sherpa (guide), many of these amateur climbers not only risked their lives but the lives of others.

My heart goes out to the experienced climbers who died last year and their families because of the long queues. Long queues because some of the other newer climbers froze in fear and were not able to move past certain points, holding up the queue.

I thought about all of this yesterday as I felt off. I knew in my mind and body that something was not right within me so I called my spiritual partner to discuss my emotions. From our chat and him being my amazing spiritual mirror, I was able to sense and see the compounded layers of spirit and entity attachments from the many channeling and astral traveling sessions I’ve been having in these last three weeks.

If I did not ground myself and give specific directions and instructions before my trance channeling and astral traveling sessions, I can lose my mind and self easily in the invisible world as fast as you count to ten in one breath.

And that’s with years of intense experience.

I became such an open channel and conduit in these last three weeks that spirit and entity collection was inevitable. I was emotionally vulnerable and did not prepare and cleanse myself as I usually would given the current flux energies of our world. A commencement for a, ‘come one, come all,’ attachment party. Special invite by me because I let my guard down and allowed them to bypass my spiritual boundaries. They ended up staying with me.

Just because you can’t see it, feel it or hear it doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. We live in the physical world but can easily slip into the invisible, hidden worlds just as easy. If you are feeling lost in this world, my suggestion is to ground yourself mentally, emotionally and physically before trying different invisible avenues. Unless your spiritual guide and teacher is one who is versed and knowledgeable through the depths of individual realms and can guide you to unlock the light within you.

I spent most of my day yesterday doing massive amounts of my cleansing rituals and will do the same today. There are rare cases of full possession but in spirit/entity attachment it does happen. When you want to or try to become a clear channel please do so with an experienced spiritual guide/coach/teacher.

Don’t be the inexperienced climber frozen in fear because you have not trained enough. Become the person who has prepared yourself for the climb on your own Mount Everest. You are the highest peak in your world and you can conquer your own fears. Believe in yourself but also ground yourself in the physical world so that you move in and out with ease into the invisible realms and know who you are, where you are and what you want.

I send you my love. Many blessings.
