Basil & Blue Spruce

The Meaning Behind The Candle: Basil & Blue Spruce

To be grounded means to be "down to earth," rooted and stable.

It is a state of being in the present moment, in the here-and-now. Grounding helps alleviate overwhelming feelings and intense emotions and helps a person to regain mental clarity. In today's world, we live in a constant state of overstimulation. This constant need to "do" can lead to anxiety, depression, and overall dissatisfaction. Grounding helps us to step away from this and just "be."

How To ground yourself

To practice feeling grounded, close your eyes and take a deep breath. When you open your eyes, name five things you can see, four things you can feel (for example, the floor beneath your feet), three things you can hear, two things you can smell (hopefully this candle is one of them!), and one good thing about yourself.

Take a moment each day to separate yourself from the chaos of life and truly be present in the moment.

You'll be amazed at how much unnoticed beauty is already right in front of you.
