To remain in altered states for long periods of time without grounding oneself in the lower Earth vibrations does create real field problems, and disturbances in the alkaline-acid balance in the blood. (Valerie Hunt)
Subtle energy, when rarefied, tends to ascend taking spiritualized substance with it. Ascension of rarefied spiritual substance ideally occurs during an attunement session, but not always. When it does, it creates a bridge between heaven and earth across which healing currents of divine love descend upon mortal flesh. This can be a bit ungrounding, both for practitioner and client, but especially for the client. Grounding, then, is helpful, even essential, in bringing a person back down to earth.
I know that working with sound as a carrier wave for these healing currents, especially the higher tones of the small metal bowls and tuning forks, can be very ungrounding for my client. I use a very low frequency (64 hertz) “C” body-tuner (tuning fork) on top of the feet in closing a session, holding the bottom of the foot with my other hand, to remind my clients that they have feet, a gentle way to end a session with a touch of light humor to ease their re-entry into the mundane world. Besides feeling wonderful, the lower frequency of the body-tuner is felt throughout the bones of the skeleton when transmitted by the body-tuner into the bones of the feet. Bones, especially those in our feet, are very much grounded in the minerals of the earth. Another very endearingly grounding technique is to take the client’s feet into my hands and gently squeeze them, starting with the ankles and moving toward the toes. A drink of cold water and a walk around the room barefooted–or, better yet, on a lawn if available–also helps bring one down to earth.

Speaking of minerals and the earth, this would be a good time to consider the role of the mineral kingdom in bringing cosmic energy and forces into the earth and thereby into the vegetable and animal kingdoms. It seems that the rocks ground and radiate cosmic forces. Likewise, the minerals in our bodies ground and conduct cosmic forces through them. Without a sufficient quantity and balance of these minerals, we would not be able to handle the power of these cosmic forces.
In her mind-engaging book, Infinite Mind – Science of the Human Vibrations of Consciousness, Dr. Valerie Hunt addresses with some depth of understanding the phenomenon of the alkaline-acid balance of the blood being disturbed during long visits to higher planes in “altered states” of consciousness. The pH (potential of Hydrogen) of the blood ideally stays a little on the acid side, which allows it to absorb minerals. The body spares no cost in keeping the blood pH balanced, the only condition that allows for the absorption of vitamins and minerals.
Now, acid-alkaline balance allows for the flow of energy through connected fields of positively and negatively charged molecles. Acids have a positive charge and bring a stimulating influence to the cells along with a coherent energy of attraction. Alkaline minerals have a negative charge, bringing a calming influence to the cells, as well as a grounding for positively charged atoms and a responsive field that is drawn toward the positive field of the acids. This is how a balance in blood chemistry is maintained, as well as in the flow of energy through the body.
This balance can be upset by dietary and lifestyle improprieties, such as toxins in foods, beverages, polluted air, and tobacco and other consciousness altering drugs. It is also disturbed when alkaline reserves are depleted in the body, either from a high acid-ash diet of meats and grains which draws heavily on these reserves, or simply from not eating enough mineral-rich foods — or both. Minerals are so lacking in the modern American diet that supplementation is wise.
I recommend Min-Tran ($20/330 tabs.), a combination of Organically Bound Minerals ($13/90 tabs.) and Calcium Lactate, ($20/330 tabs.) and Trace Minerals B12 ($15/90 tabs.) by Standard Process Labs. Drop me an order by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I’ll have it to you in a few days.
This imbalance in blood chemistry can easily be rectified and prevented by taking in a balanced amount of electrolytes (acids and alkalizing minerals). Acids will be found in fruits like oranges and alkalizing minerals in organic vegetables grown in mineral rich soil. Lemons and limes are balanced, so lemon aide and lime aide with a little sea salt and cane sugar or honey make great electrolyte replenishing beverages.
A word to the wise subtle energy worker: If ever you or your client experience faint or a drain of energy, even loose consciousness – “zone out” into an “altered state” – during an attunement, then look to this factor and consider organic mineral supplementation for both you and your client before having another session. Have some lemon or lime aide on hand. But most importantly, learn and use grounding techniques to bring your client down to earth where cosmic energies and the spiritual energies can be grounded. Heaven and earth, after all, are one and are best experienced by human beings that way.
Of course, if you are a well-grounded person and wise energy worker who has learned to approach your clients with a radiant regard toward what they bring in the way of health issues, as opposed to a responsive posture toward the client’s problematic issues and a sympathetic desire to fix the problem and heal the client, then you are not likely to lose your footing in the earth and drift off with your client into altered states. Our job, as we seasoned practitioners have learned, is to hold a fully conscious point of orientation and provide a solid vibrational anchor for the client while they go through changes in their energetic field and physical body.
I would like to delve more deeply into this subject matter, if you are willing to take a little side trip with me. I am going to share with you an excerpt from my book, Sacred Anatomy, wherein I describe the individual function of the 12 organic minerals and a few of the 72 trace minerals within the context of a meditation on the sacred anatomy of our body temples. Apparently, it takes that many varied organic and trace minerals to step down and differentiate the powerful forces moving through the cosmos in our bodies. The excerpt isn’t long for a book, but it is for a blog. So, I’ll start it in my next post and see how and where it goes from there. I think you will enjoy the meditation.
