Earth Energy Connection: Learning to feel one with Gaia

Connecting with the energies of Gaia

24 October 2018

One of the reasons why people are attracted to Wicca is a feeling of deep connection to nature and the planet Earth.

In ancient astrology, it was believed that the cosmos was formed from the four Persian elements of Earth, Water, Air, and Fire. Although, modern science has a whole table of elements the energy of these 4 elements is used in all magickal traditions.

When witches connect with the Earth we’re connecting with these four elements. We’re connecting with the earth we’re standing upon, the air we breathe, a natural water source and the warmth of the sun.

I’d like to invite you to experience a process that will connect you more solidly and energetically with Earth herself. As you do the following activities, you may sense the other elements as well but today I’d like to invite you to focus on earth.

If you’re able to connect directly with the earth then go outside and stand with your feet firmly planted on the grass or any natural surface. If you can’t do this, don’t worry, I’ll show you how you can still connect with her toward the end of this article.

Let’s begin…

As you stand on the earth’s surface, feel the solidity under your feet. Feel the weight of the earth underneath you.

How heavy is she?

Can you feel any vibration?

Do you feel your energy becoming more grounded?

You can bend down and place your hands upon the ground as well to get a stronger feeling.

Imagine that you and the earth are one. What does it feel like to imagine that you are the planet? What does all of the activity of the planet feel like?

Can you feel a sense of the earth breathing?

Immerse yourself in the feeling of being one with the earth.

If you find yourself in a concrete jungle and there is no natural surface directly beneath you then imagine that you have a cord that runs through the concrete or surface between you and the earth. Do this until you feel a connection with Earth herself.

Focus on the connection for a few moments until it becomes strong and then continue with the above exercises.

If you do this for just a few minutes every day, you’ll strengthen your connection to the earth, her energies, and her creative power.
