Grounding is a great way for psi vamps to protect themselves from unwanted energies.As a psi vamp feeds with tendrils, they can also ground themselves with tendrils as well.

The easiest method I know is to extend your tendrils into the ground or Mother Earth and filter the bad energies through the earth and back into you.Basically, like a filter or pump where as only the filtered energy comes into you.That way you do not have all the emotional baggage that comes along with feeding ambiently and the energy is purer and more satisfying.

Personally, I do not normally ground. I tend to only clean my energy field of debris with basic charging and brushing techniques.

The trouble with grounding is that many folks have trouble (particularly when they're first starting out), keeping their energy field from draining off into the ground (it does work like a grounding wire on an outlet).  They also have a tendency to pull up earth energy, and most psy-vamps can't feed off of earth energy--if they could, their instincts wouldn't be leading them to feed off of people.  Anyone can take in earth energy and use it for various energy work, but it's not necessarily good for you.

I'm not sure I see how running energy taken from others through the earth would clean it.  Perhaps because you believe this happens, you have subconsciously created a filter and are removing the patterns yourself?  From all I've seen, patterns degrade over time, or when impacted by other energies that disrupt them--you could pass energy through a ley line, and certainly the patterns would be removed, but the energy itself would also be swept away down the line, mingling with the earth energy there.

The easiest way I can describe it is actually building a cicuit with the earth and it is the filter which filters out the negative and replaces it with the good energies that I require. This is very close to the Tree grounding system some magic-users employ.

The earth's energy is very rich and powerful energies, protective and good for healing.

That's not a universal opinion--I find earth energy to be almost caustic to my system.  But I am a psionics specialist who has used auric energy exclusively for nearly a decade.  I do know that some other born energy-workers also find energy types that aren't natural to their system to be painful, disruptive, or even damaging if internalized.

If you find earth energy healing, then perhaps it is for you, but never assume it will be for everyone else.  It's important for folks to understand this, as many beginners will fight through a bad reaction to external/nonhuman/nonliving energy, because they were told they should be using it.  If it doesn't feel good--don't do it. <lol>

Thank you for that and never thought about it truly making someone sick, but in turn you can use any form of energy to ground off of that does not make you sick as well to ground too. As far as I go dark energies make me sick , but I can use them if I have too just leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

There is many various forms of energies to use and some very powerful and dangerous to use and even the best energy manipulator's needto be careful with some energies due to there potency and strength and just playing and toying with these energies can cause severe nerve burn, so be careful.

I'm very connected to the earth and more or less constantly 'grounded', (anytime I check I'm already there) but find it harder to expand my connection upwards to the universe. I like the tree root or mountain visualizations, but for me it's enough to open the energy points. If I'm in want of comfort I curl up between tree roots like a mushroom 'egg', where it's dark and moist and protected. However, this may not be the most balanced of states.

I also think for many people the opposite can be true, where they're naturally yang and feel more comfortable connecting with the sun, moon, sky, stars or universe as a whole...? Maybe its for this reason that I've sometimes I've seen people use the terms 'centered' and 'grounded' interchangeably. I don't think they're the same thing though. I'm not a particularly centered person, (unfortunately); I'm scattered and absentminded - 'away with the fairies' - unless I deliberately center by connecting to the cosmos.

Incidentally, I've experimented once directly taking energy from someone. I didn't like it - it seemed overly (almost sickeningly) rich and... gooey (for want of a better description). I'd expect other people's energy might be very different, but I'm not interested is trying again. Now if I take in another's energy in a healing session it's by mistake and it's usually associated with energy that doesn't serve them, and I don't want it either. I've picked up a sore throat and a sinus infection this way. Although if I'm very quick I can clear the energy before it manifests in the physical.

I was taught that the Earth recycles energy that is not useful to us into forms that are healthy, and deep into the Earth is where I place any unneeded energy from a session or my own work.

Overall, IMHO, the aim is to be balanced, in order for our energy systems to healthily interact and navigate day to day. If grounding, as in connecting to the Earth, is what it takes to get there, that's cool. Everyone       has to discover for themselves what works for them.

Centering means aligning your energy systems evenly around your center point.  Sort of like a nice stretch and popping your back into place, then standing with your weight perfectly balanced.

Grounding means connecting yourself to the ground.

I don't personally connect myself to anything.

I found this a very interesting topic.

Personally, I find that you can feed off the earths energy and those of all living things on this plane but do they sate? Nay.

Feeding off of the earth is like bloodletting would be to a sang. It is but a slight relief of the hunger or need to feed. As for cleansing the energy you have taken in I personally have never had a need to do this. I filter my energy as I take it in, be it through manipulation of the nature of the energy or through purely filtering out that which would harm me, and thus never have had to "ground" myself. And, on the topic of feeding, I will admit to taking from those who do not consent to it. I take that which is harmful to them, the negative energy, and feed upon it thus clearing their energy of debris. Sort of like how a catfish would feed off the debris and negatives of a lake keeping it clean.

As for centering, I actually find that that practice I perform slightly different than most would. I would take the excess energy. I would form sort of a store of this excess and press it to the center of myself for use if and when i need in a energy working or simply to keep myself balanced. This energy will be locked there until such time as I deem it necessary to use it.

Going back into the shadows again. Hope those within the community can solve what needs to be solved and those new to it can handle it or run while ya can lol.

Back somewhat but still determining if things are fixed >.> XD Can contact me via PM for discussion or hit me up on facebook.
