When we think of being grounded, we sometimes think of being humble, modest, or rooted to our true selves so as to honor the moment in our highest self possible. Whether it is coming to the hour of an important life decision or someone we care and love dearly who needs the most of our undivided attention, it is critical to be grounded in our soul self in grandeur moments.
Being grounded means that you are centered and balanced with who you are on a soul level. It means you’re wholly connected to truest, most authentic self.
When you’re grounded you make decisions that honor and respect your soul’s needs, while respecting and honoring the rights of another.
If you are going to be making any major life decisions, such as those related to relationship or career, or if you are stepping into a conversation that requires and deserves your utmost attention and care – it’s important to be grounded.
