I love to use Essential Oils to help deepen my meditation practice. My favorite essential oil for feeling grounded is Frankincense. Frankincense is an essential oil that has been used for thousands of years for spiritual grounding and healing.
Begin this grounding meditation by finding a comfortable seat in a chair. Sit near the edge of the chair so your feet can comfortably reach the ground and you can root down into the earth with your feet. Sit with a tall spine and allow your shoulders to relax and feel at ease. Place some Frankincense essential oil on your hands and slowly rub your palms together and place your cupped hands over your nose. Take a deep breath in to smell the fragrance of this grounding essential oil. As you exhale, place your palms face down on your thighs. Feel the weight of your feet on the earth and the steadiness of your breath. As you inhale, think of the word “I” and as you exhale think of the word “AM”. Try not to add anything to end of that phrase to explain or label anything. Just be. Just allow yourself to be in the moment. I AM. I AM. I AM. Continue this meditation for as long as you’d like.
