Here is a mudra for grounding to Mother Earth. It is good for whenever a person feels spacey, or just too out there on the astral plane. Very easy!
Sit on the ground, if possible. A porch (‘semi-outdoors’) would be a second choice. You can sit in easy pose (crosslegged) as shown, or on a chair, with your feet firmly on the ground or porch floor.
Form a triangle with the fingers of both hands, as shown in the picture. The tips of the joined fingers are pointing down to Earth. With your will power (your third chakra) visualize a second triangle, as shown by the yellow lines in the picture. The top of this triangle is at the level of your third chakra (your navel point energy, or will power, at the level of your umbilicus). The force field proceeds downward through your arms and is channeled down to Earth through your joined fingers.
You may optionally choose to chant this Hindu and Buddhist mantra, which means “I am the jewel within the lotus blossom”:
Om mani padme hum
This chant is good to vanquish fear. Also good for on-the-spot grounding and balance. Pronunciation: Om monny podmay hoom (1)
Here is a sample on video:

The feeling at the navel point is like that of a warrior.
