When I began my spiritual development in January 2019, I think I googled the heck out of the internet trying to understand what grounding is. It wasn't meant for me to find out from the internets so everything worked out. However, if you're finding this video, THIS right here is meant to be.
Hi, my name is Krisell Valenzuela. I’m the multi-dimensional medium, Akashic Records reader, energy healer, and spiritual development coach behind www.krisellcan.com. So today, I want to talk to you about grounding. What does grounding mean? What are grounding practices that you can take on? I started off my practice of grounding, in psychic development in general, using meditation as a form of grounding. As I’ve gone on my development journey, what I’ve realized and what it really took is understanding: what is grounding? Grounding practices can be anything because grounding is having an understanding, basis or foundation in who you are, where you are, what you came here to do. So at the core of it, its being rooted. It is knowing your environment. Let’s dig into that a little more. How to ground is about rooting yourself and having a foundation in something. I think if you look it up in Merriam Webster grounding says it’s having a basis in something. And so you can be grounding in many different experiences. And so your practice could evolve or be a chameleon for whatever that situation is. Some of the really common grounding practices, I started off doing meditation and a simple grounding meditation is to visualize roots growing from your body into the earth helping you anchor yourself into this earthly experience. And that is really helpful, especially when you are getting astral (astral traveling to other dimensions). Because you came into this 3D existence with purpose. Regardless of how many dimensions you go into, it’s important to know that hey! we are here, right here, right now in this dimension with a purpose. Other grounding practices could be earthing. Whether it be gardening, hugging a tree, or being barefoot on the earth. I like to think of other grounding experiences in terms of what helps me feel and connect into being human here on earth. Exercising is really helpful. Eating. (laughs) I don’t know about you but, I often have days where I forget to eat my meals. And so, making sure that I’m eating my meals and not spreading them too far apart. To take care of my human responsibilities, whether it be to pay my bills. Call customer service and take care of whatever nonsensical human issue I have to take care of. Some people like to use their divination tools to help ground them. It really is up to you and depending on who you are. I challenge you, instead of jumping into any of these practices that I do and seeing how it works for you, I challenge you to think about what reminds you that you are human and that reminds you, you are physical. Think about what helps you feel grounded and anchored. And so whether that be hugging someone, spending time with fam and friends, or being outside and laying in the grass and staring at the sky. I challenge you to think of experiences that you can turn into rituals. I think that is so much more powerful than looking up a list and trying what someone else tells you to do. At the end of the day, you need to have a practice that you can do on a daily basis because grounding is a daily, it’s a daily ritual. It is a daily self-care practice.
Every Thursday @5PM PST/8PM EST I go live on FB, Twitch, and YouTube with emoji readings, psychic development, discussing metaphysics, and answering your questions. The schedule is up on my website, link in bio.
Join me today as I hang out with Imee @mayarimoonapothecary and talk archetypes and Psychic Development.
Imee is a Filipinx, a mother, a poet, a musician, and a martial artist, among many other large and little things. Imee was born in the Philippines and spent her childhood in (the Kingdom of) Hawaii, and currently reside on the ancestral lands of the Shawnee, Miami, Wyandotte and Delaware nations in Ohio. The idea to create Mayari Moon Apothecary was spontaneously born one night under a full moon, as a way to honor her ancestors and her story. Mayari is the Philippine goddess of the moon, and she currently offers high vibrational products for self care and ritual inspired by Mayari herself.

I got a 30 Days of Intentions card set from @gratitudeglassjars. I'll be using and sharing them as I reconnect and get honest with myself.
What is a value? Oxford Languages defines values as:
plural noun: values
As an individual, you don’t need to seek other’s validation for your worth.
As a collective, you’re here to show others what they’re worth by investing your trust in them.
Thank you for trusting me with your energy.
What do you value?
Registration for my Healing Your Relationship with Wealth course closes when class starts tonight at 6PM PST/9PM EST.
Something you may not know about me is that I’m a secret numerologist. Math feels so reliable. Sometimes it is frustrating but it almost feels concrete. Numbers don’t lie and they don’t get swayed by your emotions. 2+2 will always equal 4 no matter how pissed, annoyed, or even maniacally happy one can be. Calculating your life path number from your birth date is probably the most identifiable tool from numerology but, everything holds numbers as codes within it. Each letter carries a numeric vibration and therefore words (and hellur names!!) carry vibrations based on their numeric combination. Point being, everything carries a numeric vibration and there is so much wisdom in that.
The most interesting idea I took away from my independent numerology studies is the cycle of 9. Numerology exists in a cycle of 0-9. When you apply it to letters, the first 9 letters in the alphabet represent 1-9 and start over at 0 (or 10, 20, etc.) to 9 again. Our individual lives are a series of cycles of 9. As a collective, we go through cycles of 9 years.
As a collective, what does 2021 have in store for us? 2021 is a 5 year. Check out the graph to see where the 5 is in relation to 3, 4, and 6. There is a significant jump from 4, a return to 3, and there is even more to elevate to get to a 6. All in all, 5 is a good year as 5 carries the vibration of change.
When we think of change, people often are stuck in the pitfall perspective of change as turning life upside down. This happens when there is a strong attachment to the status quo. Change represents disruption to patterning that keeps you static. Disruption that is needed to break through cycles to create space for joyfully exciting energy.
You know what static living reminds me of? A heart rate monitor when someone dies. Life is full of highs and lows because we are dynamic multi-dimensional beings. When we lose that dynamism, we lose life.
While 2020 was a trough year, a 4 year. It was also a stabilizing year. As a collective we brought ourselves down to earth, to ground, to get real with ourselves. We had to get super fucking real with ourselves to create the kind of foundation to carry all of the good shit we’re about to create.
If you’re ready for the kind of good shit we’re creating in 2021, I want you to register for my class that starts this Thursday evening: Heal Your Relationship with Wealth. Click on the thumbnail below to register.
If you’re the DIY type and live for the adventure of learning as you go, I’m coming out with a new spiritual development coaching package that will set you up with the foundations to get you going. I'll be launching it soon, stay tuned!
Have you ever spent time in your garden, at a park, or on a nature trail and felt like you weren't alone? It could be an animal or it could be a nature spirit.
As animists, pre-colonial Filipino spiritual traditions were that all things have a spirit. As a child, I was taught to tread lightly through the yard and to say "tabi tabi po" or "excuse me" in Tagalog. Whenever I am hiking or camping, I am extremely sensitive to the fact that I am trespassing on someone else's home. This is likely from being taught at a young age this practice of saying excuse me while I walk through nature. It was only a few years ago that I was terrified of all things non-physical. My canon was all ghosts, hauntings, and spooky.
This practice of saying "tabi tabi po" was taught to me as a way to be among the nature spirits with respect and reverence for their own existence. It gives them a heads up that you're coming through so that they can find safe coverage. It is believed that if you cause harm to a nature spirit, it could seek revenge on you. After all, nature spirits feel emotions just like us including anger and fear. As a child, my elders must've left out the respect and reverence part of the explanation. It was the fear or retaliation that had me saying excuse me.
Have no fear. If we allow unconditional love to guide us and be our flashlight, we can trust that everything happens as divinely planned. Want to explore these metaphysical streets with confidence in your authority? I want to work with you 1:1 to do just that. My practice is centered on guiding people to use their energy with confidence and authority so that they feel centered and balanced no matter the situation. This allows people to continue the work learning their own way and as their own master. Click here to setup a complimentary 15 minute consultation to see if we are an energetic match.
Use this meditation to dip your toe in the faery energy pool or allow it to be your portal to explore this magical world.
Are you trying to:
I've got news for you. You don't need any of it.
When you understand how your energy works and the paradigm in which the Universe is communicating you in, that's all you need. Sit back and let me tell you a story.
I grew up with my paternal grandparents living 5 minutes away from me. Coincidentally, or not, I now live in between the home they lived in and the home I grew up in. While I spent a lot of time at their house, I can't say I knew much about my grandparents as people.
I remember spending afternoons at my grandparents' house. Most of the time, my grandma had her sewing or embroidery machine out. She was always crafting something whether it be sewn, embroidered, knitted, or crocheted. My grandma was a Filipina Martha Stewart always creating things. One time she took a heather grey sweatshirt and embroidered a fluffy teddy bear onto it. I wore that sweatshirt until the cuffs frayed.
When she passed away, I remembered so fondly sitting on her kitchen counter top as we made pancakes together, me tossing gummy bears into the batter. Compared to the memories of my maternal grandma, which are none because she died before I was born, I have this wealth of experience with my paternal grandma yet I feel heavier regret for not knowing her more fully as a person. For not asking her more questions and getting to know who she was and how she came to be. Yes, she could've resisted my questions as so many adults do to youth. But I never even gave her the opportunity to deny me.
Getting in touch with my spiritual self and embracing my psychic abilities, I didn't expect anything. I approached it with curiosity for the peace of mind it offered but never consciously understood what I was getting myself into. Here I am, almost 2 years later, and it is reconnecting me with my grandma to finally know her in a way that I thought wasn't possible. I allowed myself to flow with her guidance.
While I've read books and taken courses on many topics, lately I've been finding myself dropping or not completing them because I don't feel connected to the process. I've been allowing my intuition to guide me to what is most significant to me. I wouldn't have been able to do it if I was the same scaredy cat I was 3 years ago. I would've been to scared to find that I always held the key to my success: meeeeee.

I created this meditation to help people discern via a somatic experience. I told someone that our body is one large tarot card/divination tool giving us clues to our experience. The same can be said when trying to discern whether your experience is based in high intentions or not.
If you're looking for someone to teach you how to traverse these metaphysical explorations so that you can go into any experience or modality with confidence and authority, setup a 15 minute consultation with me here to see if we're an energetic match.
On Sunday November 1, All Saints Day in Christian-Filipino culture, I taught Connecting and Working With Your Spirit Guides. A class connecting you with your energetic board of directors, helping you return to your native guidance system.
Connecting with my spirituality, was a transformative process for me. Knowing that I have this dream team of supporters gave me confidence to take on all of the life experiences that normally would've made me feel unworthy and inferior. Working with my spirit guides helped me shift my mindset so that I could show up as my whole self.
Following the class, I had a dream in my happy place. All of my ancestors that I knew in this lifetime were there. They gathered around me, holding me, supporting me as I cried. I cried tears of relief and healing knowing that I am living my purpose.
I am excited to see how this class grows from here, the possibilities are infinite. Thank you so much for making me a part of your journey.
I am offering this class again on Dec 13 and Feb 12. Click here to register or see the next offering of this class.
If you're ready for energetic abundance, this class is for you.
