We can also improve our health, outlook, and more.
So – What is Grounding or Earthing? Mother Earth protects us all. Although we may not know it, connecting with that protective energy can help us in a myriad of ways. Earthing, is the process of reconnecting with the earth. By reconnecting with the earth, you can become more at-one with yourself and the world around you. Have you ever noticed how calm you feel as you walk along the beach or in a grassy field without any shoes? This calming sensation flows from the earth to you. That, in and of itself, is the essence of Earthing.
How This Process Can Help You
Of what practical use is grounding? Those who practice grounding believe it makes them feel more at-one with the intangible spirit (or spirits) that rule the universe. Grounding can help to align your chakras. By aligning chakras, you can improve your physical, mental, and spiritual oneness. You can also greatly improve your health in all these areas. Studies show that Earthing can help to improve pain, cardiovascular health, lessen stress, prevent inflammation, and more. Groups who are spiritual, as well as nonspiritual, can experience the wondrous benefits of this ancient practice.
Ready to start Earthing? There are lots of simple techniques you can use. Try to walk barefoot more often. If you can find a green space to regularly practice barefoot walking, great! Walking in sand also has the same effect. If not, you can try specialized mats, although nothing compares to the real deal! If you live someplace warm, then immerse yourself in a body of conductive water such as the ocean or mineral rich lake. Breathe deeply and connect with the earth. Feel free to practice grounding each day, in conjunction with other spiritual activities, like meditation for total holistic wellbeing.
