What is Earthing, and Grounding?
Earthing and Grounding are the same thing or at least have the same effect.
The only difference is that different people use different words.
As you know, you need the sun right?!
But you actually also need the Earth. Nowadays we mostly live inside our homes and we wear shoes when we’re on the outside. This prevents us to get in contact with the Earth. Earthing/grounding means you connect to the earth/ground again and get the energy you need.
Anyone can ground them self and it is really easy! And in many practices for free! Grounding and earthing is when the energies in your body are not in balance. It might make you feel unhappy or even to get anxiety.
There are plenty of different ways to ground your self and I will give some advice here. You will get different answers depending on who you ask. Someone from China, for example, would use words like Ying and Yan but someone from the US might use Electrons, plus, and minus when they talk about the effects.
It does not matter. The importance lies in the benefit.
How to do it?
There are many ways but the most simple and free way is just walking in the grass barefoot.
Or why not hug a tree?
But if you don´t want to embarrass yourself you just but the back against the tree and pretend you are just resting for a while.
The energy can flow thought your clothing as long as they are not to thick.
There is also plenty of other exercises that can help you and the different persons or experts will use different variations. Here I describe some of these.
I don´t mean to say they don´t use all of the technics. It is just a way to realize how big this is and how many ways there are. So to be clear, my text here is very general!
-Median persons use crystals
-Someone who meditates use visualization
-Easter world- use pressure points.
-Yogi-masters – use body exercises
-The western world- use earthing products like mats and sheets.
-I like – to be barefoot, hug a tree or swim in the ocean
As I said, this is a very general list. People use the technic they find to be best for them and many mixes from different cultures. This was only to state there are many variations and different ways to talk about grounding.
Whatever is you find as your favorite. use that.
If you don´t have one, try out and see for yourself.
The easiest is of course just going outside being barefoot
The trees and the ground has the energy that you need. Just think about it when you are in nature you always feel great afterward.
Why do we need grounding?
We need this to feel good. That should be enough as an answer, but I will, of course, give you some more 🙂
There is actually a lot of studies shows the grounding works but more importantly, if you ask me, is what people say.
This is what many people describe:
Studies also show that your blood pressure stabilizes.
Well if this is not enough for you I will just make it even more simple.
–>You simply just feel better!
If you’re into meditation it is great to use grounding before you start.
It will help you to connect and reach higher awareness!
When you meditate it’s very easy to lose the connection and the concentration but if you are grounded this will help you.
Grounding will of course not solve all your problems. You still need to visit your doctor, eat food, meet friends and go to your work, sleep, etc. by that said do normal things.
But it might help you to feel better on your journey.
I think everyone who ever been in nature touching the ground knows the feeling.
Maybe you don’t understand that impact of this but it will help you
Products to use inside
Many companies sell sheets, mats and other products that you can use inside. You just plug it the wall and then you will get the same effect is if you were outside.
I guess this is great if you live in an apartment and have to work most of the day. Time to stay in nature is not very long.
From what I heard this works but I guess this is up to each of us to try out.
Also if you take medicine I would suggest you ask your doctor first before buying one.
So, what is grounding?
Something that makes your life better!
What to do?
Pick an exercise that you like, buy a sheet or just go outside and hug a tree!
Hope this could help you!
