Ascending with both feet on the ground.





Ascending with both feet on the ground: Soulshaping is a philosophy of grounded spirituality. We grow by coming down into our body and our personhood and learning the lessons necessary for our expansion ("You have to grow down to grow up"). Ascending with both feet on the ground is the idea that our ascension to more heightened consciousness can only be sustained if it is an embodied unfolding from the ground up (from Sole to Soul...). We begin with the root chakra-the quest for Om begins at home-and we work our way up from there. It is not enough for our feet to merely skim the ground. The mythic life begins with our feet planted on Mother Earth. With our soles firmly planted, our soul has a leg to stand on in its efforts to go higher. Once the root chakra is satisfied, we proceed to the next chakras. As we heal, there emerges a natural and sustainable movement upward, toward God. This philosophy bridges the Eastern quest for the eternal with the Western quest for emotional health. ~ Jeff Brown

Hi Julie, Jeff's book SoulShaping is really good, it's especially good for doing the deep work within ourselves. I'm right in the middle of reading it for his review. Mark your calendar and join us for his live author chat in June. If you have a chance to read his book before then I guarantee you'll really want to be asking questions and hearing his answers.

I completely agree. It is tough to do enlightening work without being grounded first. Love his quip, "sole to soul."

I'll mark the calendar for his chat with you!
