How do I know if I am ungrounded? 19 Jul 2021
The concept of being grounded refers to a feeling of being stable and at ease. When we feel grounded it assists us to accept and let go of the tough moments throughout the day and we are not as easily influenced by other’s feelings or ideas. When you are grounded you feel more at peace with your authentic self.
To assist you to determine if you are ungrounded, I have provided a list common symptoms of feeling ungrounded, to see if these are familiar to you.
- Feeling ‘floaty’
- Finding it hard to concentrate
- Not being in the present moment – the ‘now’
- Being overly caught up in thoughts
- Being forgetful including misplacing or losing things
- Bumping into things, being clumsy or accident prone
- Losing track of time (we’ve all driven home and not known how we got there)
- Being easily distracted
- Feeling drained
- Not feeling connected to your body, your intuition or your emotions
- Not feeling able to move forward
- Unable to make decisions
- Not feeling connected to the world
- Losing track of conversations
- Craving chocolate (which may also be a sign of being short of magnesium)
- Getting lost when driving, even when you have a GPS, you just can’t seem to go the right way, even when the area is quite familiar to you — yes this does happen, it has happened to me!
- Having out of body experiences without meaning to and feeling that you are not within your control
Of course it is important to remember that some of these conditions above can indicate problems with your mental or physical health, so do go and see a doctor if you are concerned as well as trying to become more grounded.
