Daoist tradition plays great emphasis on grounding before embarking on any type of spiritual development such as a meditation practice. This helps avoid two of the primary pitfalls of spiritual development:
- Getting spacy, ungrounded, unbalanced, and otherwise incapable of functioning in this world.
- Entity attack or influence.
This basic meditation grounds you in your space and connects you to the earth in preparation for deeper practices.
