SKIN TO EARTH"Grounding" or "Earthing" What is earthing? The process of absorbing earth's free flowing electrons from its surface through the soles of ones feet.
What is grounding? Grounding is a energetic phenomena one experiences when their bare skin directly connects to Mother Earth. To be grounded is to be energetically centered, to give your energy a point of focus. Life is all about balance and as earthly beings we truly belong in close quarters to the most natural areas of this planet. We simply are not meant to be indoors and wearing rubber soles every time we leave the house. Modern living has definitely limited the raw contact our bodies have to the earth below our feet. Our bodies starve to be in contact with the earth's electricity on a daily basis. The same natural dirt that provides us with a surface to live on, and space to grow our food charges our bodies with much needed negative ions. We all have energetic bodies and everything around us comes from pure energy. Today’s technology has a way of infecting us with “dirty energy” or energy that hurts us instead of helps us. Ironically it’s the positive ions that cause us the most harm. Exposing ourselves to more positive ions (electrical energy or dirty energy) then negative ions over a lifetime or less can destroy our health. The cure is the earth's natural healing powers. It’s free and easy to obtain. There’s no catch! Once our skin makes contact with the earth, those positive ions are neutralized and we are again in balance. Balance will support us in living well with good health and prosperity. Most importantly we will feel great!
I thought I would share this video below. When I first started learning about grounding, I came across this and it truly spoke to me. I encourage you if you have a few minutes to stop and watch it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7qn_YnLudgg Why should we ground? ONE it is EASY. TWO it is FREE. Not many things you can do are both in this world! The bottom line here is grounding is a great way to stay balanced and healthy. It seems to be a common topic in the messages I receive from the universe, for myself and whoever I read. WE ARE NOT GROUNDED! A lot of us in this world have no idea that we are NOT grounded. Most people have no idea what I mean when I say “Your problem is that you’re not grounded.” It truly is as simple as we are not in contact with the earth nearly enough. We feel better, and are better, when we are grounded. We weren't born with shoes on our feet, we are natural beings and tend to forget that. Human beings should be connected to the earth, it’s as much apart of us as we are it. Grounding is the invisible cure. The earth gives us so much and it’s time to take advantage of its generous healing energy.

How do I know if I am not grounded? Ask your self this... Do you feel physically, mentally, emotionally, or spiritually drained more often then you should? Are you easily affected by others drama, issues, or emotions? Do you lack focus? Are you irritable, with scattered thinking? Do you find yourself feeling spacey, or light headed? You often feel like you are "in the clouds". Do you struggle to live in the moment, and never make time for breaks? Are you clumsy, constantly dropping things, running into things, or struggling with your physical balance in general? Are you easily influenced by the wrong people, places and things(aka negative energy)? Do you feel like you have no control over your future or your life in general? There's a lot more questions I could ask but if you said yes to many of these if not all of these questions, chances are you are not grounded. Or at least not grounded enough.
How to practice grounding? The quickest and easiest way to do this is to kick off your shoes and walk around in the grass (or dirt, sand, earth, etc) or lie on the ground and take a short nap in the sun. You could even try yoga or meditation outside.
Walking barefoot on the earth
Standing barefoot on exposed tree roots
