How to Ground Yourself Through Earthing

"...rhythmic pulsations of natural energy flowing through and emanating from the surface of the Earth keep the biological machinery of global life running in rhythm and balance -- for everything that lives on the land or in the sea." ~ Clinton Ober, Stephen Sinatra, MD, Martin Zucker, Earthing

     Have you ever noticed how wonderful you feel after sleeping on the ground while camping? Or after a barefoot walk? We feel great when we are directly connected to the Earth because it is our natural state of being. Sleeping and living on the ground is the way that all humans used to live. But when the Earth's population began living, sleeping and working in nonconductive buildings, and walking in shoes made of insulating materials, the flow of electric energy between the planet and our bodies became blocked. The health-depleting effects of this separation from the Earth, and the health-restoring effects of reconnecting with the Earth are well-documented.




Disconnected from the Earth 

     Ongoing research suggests that our loss of connection to the Earth's flow of surface energy as a result of modern living practices is a significant factor in the widespread development of immune-system issues and inflammation-related conditions such as:
  • food allergies
  • eczema
  • hay fever
  • asthma
  • lupus
  • multiple sclerosis
  • rheumatoid arthritis
  • cardiovascular disease
  • cancer
  • dementia
  • Alzheimer's
      Researchers have discovered that spending at least 30 minutes a day with our bare feet touching the ground helps to maintain our energetic frequencies and has dramatic effects on health and well-being. This is because restoring our connection to the Earth's electrical surface energy corrects an "electron deficient" state associated with illness, pain and inflammation.


Benefits of Earthing

     These are some of the benefits that researchers and users of Earthing have reported:
  • decreased inflammation and improvement in inflammation-related conditions
  • improved sleep
  • reduced pain
  • increased energy
  • improved blood pressure and blood flow
  • accelerated healing and recovery
  • improved mental clarity
  • decreased anxiety, stress and depression
  • weight loss
     There is speculation that we overeat to ground ourselves by using extra food intake to compensate for being ungrounded. Highly sensitive persons and empaths may especially struggle with maintaining a grounded state. Grounding is essential for sensitive persons to stay balanced and use their gifts for their lightworker purpose.

     When a sensitive person is blocked from the Earth's energy through shoes, they may unconsciously turn to heavier foods. Heavier foods slow down digestion, can make us feel more "in our body," and in a sense "hold" us to the ground with extra weight. However, the sense of grounding we seek is actually energetic in nature. Nutrient-dense, high-vibration foods such as raw, organic fruits and vegetables can give us the true grounding we seek. But we also need to correct the Earth-disconnection through Earthing. With a consistent Earthing practice, the need to eat extra calories and heavy foods is eliminated -- which facilitates weight loss.

The Umbrella Effect

   It is our body's natural state of being to conduct the Earth's electrical surface charge through our feet. When that flow of free electrons from the Earth to our bodies is blocked by nonconductive materials - namely shoes with insulated soles - our health is impaired. But the benefits of directly connecting with the Earth are also due to the ability of Earthing to shield us from electropollution in what is called the "umbrella effect."

     When we ground ourselves to the Earth through direct contact with our feet, the sea of electropollution created by the man-made electrical power grid is pushed up and away from our bodies. Trees, animals and shoeless humans all reside under this protective umbrella.



Earthing Practice and Products

     The absolute best way to practice Earthing is with your bare feet on the ground near a water source, especially if your feet are making contact with wet ground. Water is highly conductive of the Earth's energy to our bodies. And moving water produces negative ions, which are associated with high energy and high mood.

      The second best way to practice Earthing is walking barefoot on wet grass. The third best is walking barefoot on dry ground. If the weather is not warm, you can sit with your feet on the ground and cover your feet with a blanket. Although Earthing works best with bare feet on the ground, I have found wearing natural fiber socks such as cotton or wool does allow some energy transfer. If it's cold, there are shoes designed for Earthing with leather soles. You can also put your bare hands on the Earth, or on a tree.

   For times when you can't get outside and for when you are sleeping, there are Earthing products available:

     I use an Earthing Universal Mat under my feet whenever I'm working. These mats ground to the Earth through your grounded indoor electrical outlets.

     There are Earthing sheets available to ground you while you are asleep.

 Accessibility

     The beauty of grounding through Earthing as an energy healing tool is the accessibility. All you have to do is walk outside and take off your shoes to receive the benefits!
