I’ve been ‘grounding’ or ‘earthing’ for the past few weeks (actually years, but I get off track at times). Feels so nice to go out first thing in the morning and stand barefoot on the ground. A great way to get a charge of good ‘ole Earth Mother fresh energy in the morning. Stood in the snow yesterday morning in Garrett County, MD. But today it’s misting/raining in Frederick County, MD, and I just could not make myself go out in the rain to do it earlier this morning. Committed to make it happen at some point in the day.
A Qi Gong master teacher and healer recommended this to me for healing from lymphoma several years ago. Though his intent was not to connect with Earth Mother as my intent truly is. He taught about the healing aspects of releasing the free radicals that build up in our bodies, when we stand barefoot outside on the bare ground and allow the energy exchange to happen between us and Earth. It’s quite therapeutic. And very highly recommended.
Here is a Dr. Mercola article that explains the benefits of “Earthing” in more detail.
Though I encourage people to also consciously connect with Earth Mother as they do it, and send their love down to Mother and invite her love energy back up into them. It’s a power spiritual practice. Now I need to go out later today and catch up on my Earth Mother Connection… ! ;~)
Here’s a video clip from Trentham Estate in England that actually has a formal “Barefoot Walk”. I love their creativity with this!
