One of the most important skills that I have had to learn in my life has been the ability to stay grounded. What is “staying grounded”? It is the ability to know what belongs to you and what belongs to other people. The feelings and emotions that often surround us are most often not of our own creation. When something different is being felt, quietly ask yourself is this really me, or do these feelings belong to someone in close proximity, or to someone who is in my thoughts or life? A clear pattern of acknowledgement and knowing, along with the ability to separate from these feelings and emotions will quickly establish itself as you practice the art of staying grounded. How do you stay grounded? Each of us needs to find our own practice, but taking deep, deep breaths is the perfect place to start.

“Knowing what belongs to you and what belongs to others is the art of being grounded”
