Let's face it...we all have 'weeds'. As gardeners, it's always helpful to have a gardening toolkit full of 'gardening tools' to turn to when we need some help staying rooted. Today we are sharing a brand new gardening tool featuring a grounding exercise called 'You Are A Flower'.
The practice of grounding helps to bring ourselves back to the present moment when our negative feelings and uncomfortable emotions (our weeds) start taking over. These exercises can be extremely helpful when we are feeling overwhelmed, scared, stressed, or unfocused.

Close your eyes
Pretend your feet are your roots, keeping you firmly on the ground
Pretend your body is your stem, growing tall and strong
Pretend your arms are leaves, moving with the wind
Pretend you head is made up of petals, blooming beautiful colors and shapes
Take a minute to visualize all the parts of your flower and then open your eyes
