Grounding, which is sometimes called “earthing”, involves doing activities that reconnect you to the earth’s current and helps you to become grounded.
By being electrically grounded you will feel:
- Less tense
- Less stressed.
People live with constant, stress, pain, anxiety, depression and fatigue, there is also an increase of people suffering from autoimmune diseases in our modern world. Research has started to look at how disconnected from the earth we are and how this may affect our health.
We are bioelectrical beings living on an electrical planet. Our body operates electrically, our cells transmit frequencies to run our heart, muscles, nervous and immune systems.
When we live in the cities, we no longer walk barefoot outside or wear natural leather shoes that allow you to absorb the grounds energy. We wear rubber and plastic soled shoes which insulate us from the earth’s energy. By being disconnected and ungrounded we are no longer in touch with the earth’s energy. There has been some research done which is showing how grounding/earthing can help, decrease pain and inflammation, reduce stress levels, and improve circulation.
Here is a youtube link which explains some of the research and goes into much more detail.
As healers we are encouraged to connect with the ground barefoot before we start any sessions with our clients. The best way to connect to the earth is to walk barefoot on grass, sand, concrete, or earth. We do grounding exercises to help us connect to earth.
