Here we examine the way in which our minds impact on how we connect to energy and the quality of the energy that we are working with. The examples used are Meditation and Healing.

Grounding There is an intimate connection between our capacity to feel and how grounded we are, by which I mean how connected we are to our physical body. The more at ease we are with life and with feeling flowing through us, the more comfortable we
