No, I’m not referring to being grounded as being locked in your room and losing privileges. The type of “grounded” I am referring to is the process of becoming more aware of the present moment by taking in the senses and connecting with earth and the life force energy or “chi”.
We have all heard the term “empathy”, but have you ever heard the term “empath”? This is a phenomenon I first stumbled upon a few years ago that has brought great clarity and self-understanding for me.
