With all the changes that more than likely have gone on in our professional and personal worlds, due to all that is happening out there in the world, getting and staying grounded is just what is needed for us to create a solid foundation to stand on as we move into a new reality.
Grounding at a deeper level than ever before will support us as we build or rebuild, as the case may be, our personal, professional and spiritual lives.
Now, getting grounded does not mean just staying here on the planet or what we have all previously thought of as grounding or what has been our go-to grounding option for so long. Those kinds of groundings, all of which are wonderful, were usually taken to mean that we would get balanced, that we would get out of our heads, we would get our feet on the ground, all good grounding tools.
What I am talking about here with what I call high performance grounding absolutely incorporates all of those methods with a bit of a different or added perspective. And that is, grounding includes firmly holding the mental space, the heart space, the conscious space, that All Really is Well. All is well, inside and out, even when there is no apparent reason in the world for us to hold this space. No matter what our outside world is looking like – financially, professionally, politically – and no matter what our inside, personal world, is looking like, we ground ourselves in the firm pillar of truth that All is Well. With that as our cornerstone, we can feel secure in ourselves even if it looks like our world is crumbling. Why? Because in these times of great change, what is solid are the qualities we have grounded within ourselves through years of experience, as well as our faith.
For most of us, our business and personal landscapes are changing. What was working splendidly over the past few years, suddenly isn’t now. Rather than having a Chicken-Little-the-Sky-is-Falling experience, it is up to us to ground ourselves and know at the highest level that All is Well. With that perspective, we can address the changes by assessing our core competencies, reviewing what we know of our professional management elements that are relevant to a new reality. We can take a look at our ethical standards and key principles. Do they still apply, do they need to change? Then we ground what is needed. It is a good thing to take time to think about them. Maybe even write them down, remind ourselves how we want to be in the new world. This helps us stay grounded too.
With that firm foundation established, our roots firmly planted, the new energies that are entering our worlds will be easier for us to accept and work with. Just like a tree with roots deep in the earth, it sways and even bends with the strongest winds.
When we are in high performance grounding, knowing at the highest level that All is Well, we send our personal, professional and spiritual roots deeper than ever before in order to adapt to the changes coming along. This is what supports us and brings us out of any challenges, any diversity, any unpleasantries, not only intact but ultimately stronger. The trees that are not able to flex and bend with strong situations or changing conditions either get uprooted or snap off.
The world is changing whether we want it to or not, so we are well-advised to stand up when we need to, accept what is when we need to, and maneuver through it all with grace and ease. High performance grounding allows us to sway with the breeze. And if it turns into a monsoon, we know All is Well and we are deeply rooted. It is by being deeply rooted that we can support others in their processes – our staff, our clients, our customers, our family, our friends. It allows us to broaden our perspective so that we can experience any person, situation, or project with a solid foundation that can easily withstand the winds of change.
