mantak chia tells to send negative energy to the earth. Actually I never tried in a meadow, only at home, first floor, wooden parquet (love it!)… not direct contact with earth..
I wonder if it is much different. My experience was not very satisfying so far. But I live in a quite big town, I haven’t the luck to live in the woods. Do you have some suggestion on making my practice better?
thank you very muchMarch 31, 2008 at 5:37 am #27908
I would suggest you build a portal in one of the spaces in your home. An energetic portal. One place where you sit/stand and hold space for earth to arise. Make it your personal earth portal, a tunnel into earth…
If you have enough space, put earth elements around your meditation place, stones, rocks, sticks and let them stay there as a mark for your portal, whenever you step into this earth circle you connect faster and faster, as your awareness is growing every time you connect with it.
Of course earth is all around us and we ARE earth too but yes starting with this practice and living in a city you need a bit more focus…

Also keep in mind that no matter where you are, whatever
you are standing on is in constant contact with the earth.
In other words, your “separation” from it is just an illusion.
It is beneath you and supporting you all the time–it is
only your awareness of it or lack thereof that creates a
feeling of separation.
I live in a third floor apartment, so I had a lot of
trouble connecting to the earth originally. Once I
realized that the building structure is linked into the ground,
I was able to establish a connection–as the building just
becomes part of the earth, and the transmission from the
core to you only has a few extra feet to go–insignificant
in comparison to the distance from the core to the “ground surface”.
