Earth Exercise: Foot Massage

Massage the soles of your feet daily. Use lotion only if you will not be walking barefoot immediately afterwords. Rub your heel, sole, the ball of the foot and the spaces between your toes. Have a love one do it for you. Do a massage exchange with a friend or lover. Open up the chakras on the soles of your feet.

Earth Exercise: Grounding

Ground. Everyday, and through out the day. Use any method that's effective for you. It can be the good old tree of life grounding, a bio-energetic grounding exercise, the corpse pose, tree hugging, just do it please. Often. Practice using your grounding anchor so it becomes a habit. Pay attention to how it feels and what happens when you are more mindful of grounding, particularly in the presence and absence of stress.

Earth Exercise: Sleep

Get more sleep!

Try an experiment for a week. Try to go to bed early enough that you wake up before your alarm. Find out what amount of sleep is optimum for you right now. And once you discover your optimum amount of sleep, try and make a commitment to get it at least three times a week. Consider it a challenge to go to five days per week.

Earth Exercises: All Paths

Try to do as many of these assignments as you can without going overboard. The goal is for everyone to engage themselves in earth practices as much as they are able. As we approach Yule, we all need to pay attention our bodies and the earth.

February Exercise - Gratitude

One of the gifts I received in twelve step was a practice of gratitude. This practice will open you to gratitude in ways that are both subtle and cumulative -- in other words, it will sneak up on you.
