I'm in the navy stationed on a ship that has been in and out of port. one thing that I have noticed whenever i am out to sea is that I have a hard time getting myself grounded. I mean i am kinda in the middle of a giant puddle. I've tried drawing from the ocean which sometimes help, but most of the time it just exhaust me. Is there anything extra that I can do or bring with me to keep me ground so that everything doesn't go all hay wire on me?
that might help. i am a water sign, pieces, and i have been able to draw on and ground myself with water before, but it has always been fresh water, lakes, creeks, i've even used tap water. the times before with sea water i've always been at the beach so i was on land still. why would the ocean have a different effect? also what type of stones would be best for me to use when i do this? i am in port right now
Continue to draw from the ocean, as it is a great energy source. So are the moon and stars outside at night if you can go outside at night.
As a fellow Piscean, and a USN vet too, may I suggest that since you're used to fresh water ~ considered "ordered", as it is useful for irrigation and consumption ~ drawing power from sea water may be unsettling to you because it is "chaotic", that is, not easily used by land-based animals and plants. As humans, we're a special animal that has adapted itself to many environments, able to process saltwater to fresh, able to develop SCUBA and submarine artificial mini-environments, etc.
If you understand that the water around you while you're at sea is our "borrowed" environment, that it is a "wilder" form of the waters you're previously used to, you may discover that the sea has more power than you're able to handle ~ that's ok ~ just treat Her with respect, as you would any wild thing. If you envision yourself as a Tree, drawing cool power from the Water beneath you as well as hot energy from the Sun, you will feel "grounded" not physically, but emotionally and spiritually, as those powers combine in you, nourishing the Tree within you. I hope this helps!
