READINGS OPEN FOR JULY :

1 SPOT OPEN

TALKINGTODEADGUYS is the beginner's toolbox to the link personal growth and spiritual evolution. Pushing you to challenge yourself and teaching that spirituality isn't to be feared, but carefully understood – We believe that we can help you find your own path to uncovering the secrets behind each.
The number one thing that stunts channeling is self doubt. Second thing is the fear of information you can't control.
If you’re someone who overthinks and needs balance because you’re scatterbrained or feel as if you need something that will help you focus - This is it. I suggest to not continuously flip between different tabs as you’re reading this because you’ll probably miss the point. Erik’s taught me and a large amount of other people through his mother’s blog ChannelingErik that grounding helps you get out of your own head to get more in touch with the earth. You can also get in touch with it by doing a number of things (you can take up gardening, hell) - but these are the basics.
Sit down on the floor (or ground if you prefer to be outside)
Relax and clear your head
Straighten your back and take deep breaths
Take your palms and imagine energy or vines flowing from your fingers and into the ground (you can lift your palms in front of you over the ground or place your palms directly onto it)
Imagine that energy flowing into the center of the earth (use whatever imagery works for you)
Imagine transferring energy from yourself to the heart of the planet
Imagine exchanging the earth’s energy with your own (for example - visualize its core also sending energy up to you and back into your body)
Keep going into the visuals intensify and you’re able to clearly fixate on it in your imagination
You can do this for 2 - 5 - 10 - 15 minutes for as long or as little as you like. 
Grounding can technically be considered to be a form of meditation with just an eensy weensy bit more visualization. You’re getting on the ground and you’re relaxing yourself. You’re ridding your mind of those nagging little and wandering thoughts like - “I wonder if I should work out today - Did I leave my headlights on? - Did my roommate steal my Doritos? - I need to clean my carpet - I wonder if I have any money for it.” When you’re clearing your head the goal is to let those first questions enter your mind and to not bother answering them. Whether or not your roommate stole your Doritos can be figured out after you ground yourself. Not like you’re trying to eat while you’re meditating anyway. After you clear your head, you’re using any visual of the earth’s core that you feel is best for you. There is no “correct” way to visualize - whether you imagine the center of the earth Hollywood style or you pick up something that you remember seeing in your high school textbook. You focus on that when you imagine energy, roots or, ‘root like energy’ flowing from your fingers down to the earth’s core and exchanging energy with it. Don’t get caught up in trying to decide how much of an X-Men or Poison Ivy you’re trying to look or how strange you might seem to a passing sparrow. When you’re absorbing energy, just let it flow through you. Don’t expect to get a shockwave like you’re becoming Captain Planet. Sometimes you might feel warm, or get prickles, or you won’t feel anything except you seem a bit more at ease. What we can guarantee is a sense of calm whether it feels like a spa like cleanse or a breath of fresh air. For those of you that have anxiety, are stressed, overthink, or just need something nice and easy that can help you relax - we encourage you to try to do this at least once to three times a week. If this doesn’t work for you gardening could be your thing.
