Grounding, connecting with the natural energy from the Earth.
Have you heard about this lately? In case you don’t, please read this post and try it, why not?
Earthing or grounding is a practice which main objective is to have a sustained contact with Earth’s energy by any conductive medium (water, grass, sand, river, lake, sea or soil). And all you need is walking barefoot on the grass or on the sand, or sitting relaxed, just letting our body get in contact with the natural energy arising from the Earth.
Our lifestyle has changed many many things in our lives, ones for good and others not that much. Plants and animals are in constant electric connection with the Earth, but in our case is different. We rarely walk barefoot outside, we don’t sleep on the Earth, and the use of animal hides for footwear o bedding that allow the energy to pass into our body is less common. Plastic and rubber in our shoes have insulated us when we walk outside, and most of our homes and workplaces are above the ground.
Some studies show that we need electrons from the Earth, they are like a nutrient, and if missing, inflammatory reaction, pain and fatigue among others common symptoms appear. In recent years we have seen people suffering from chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, depression, autoimmune diseases, and the causes are unknown.
We are a bioelectrical being living, our heart, our nervous system, and muscles transmit multiple frequencies. The human body is totally receptive to Earth’s energy.
An anti-inflammatory response and pain reduction are common outcomes after grounding therapy, and in many others, pain, stress, depression, fatigue and blood viscosity were reduced.
Do you know someone suffering from overactive sympathetic nervous system (excessive emotional stress)? I think we all do, starting with ourselves. Studies show that grounding has a calming and balancing effect on the nervous system.
HOW TO PRACTICE GROUNDING OR EARTHING?
- Walking or placing feet barefoot on the ground. This is the easiest way during summer, on the grass, soil, sand or even in the lake or river.
- Lying on the ground. Either on the grass or on the sand.
- Using grounding products. Whether you don’t have the time or the weather does not allow it, there are mats, blankets, socks, band etc.
For healing, researchers of Grounding or Earthing suggest to practice grounding twice a day for at least 20 minutes. However, I think we can benefit from it if we do this as a regular practice, even if it is less than 20 minutes.
Why do kids love to be barefoot? Do they own the knowledge that we have lost through the years?
“The moment your foot touches the Earth, or you connect to the Earth through a wire, your physiology changes. An immediate normalization begins. And an anti-inflammatory switch is turned on. People stay inflamed because they never connect with the Earth, the source of free electrons which can neutralize the free radicals in the body that cause disease and cellular destruction. Earthing is the easiest and most profound lifestyle change anyone can make.”
