Healing and Earthing

Next time you feel stressed and overwhelmed, try earthing. Walk outside and stand barefoot on the ground for about 20 minutes. Then see how you feel. It may be just the thing you need to rebalance and calm your nervous system.

I suggest earthing to many clients healing long-term emotional and physical challenges. Earthing and staying grounded after healing sessions can support, maintain, and even enhance the benefits of a Healing Touch or Reiki session.

Check out this link to The Grounded, an independent feature film about the power of connecting to the Earth’s healing energy.  Directed by Steve Kroschel, The Grounded tells the story of Steve’s personal discovery of Earthing and how it helped him and his friends in the small town of Haines, Alaska.

If you want to more about the benefits of earthing, here is some interesting information on how earthing helps people with PTSD. 

Earthing is nurturing, accessible and costs nothing. Try it and see if you can feel a difference.

Healing: Grounding and Food, Part Two

Do you eat when you are not hungry?

Do you eat when you are tired, stressed or unfocused?

Food is grounding. Eating makes us feel nourished, supported and more present in our bodies. Many people overeat because they are ungrounded.

Eating to feel balanced and grounded is not a bad thing, especially when you are conscious of what you are doing. In fact, that is the key, making conscious choices of what and when you eat, instead of reacting from habitual emotional patterns.

An energetic healing can get you grounded, and a series of sessions can clear your energy field of emotional blocks, congestion and toxins so your body can stay grounded. People often change their eating patterns after a series of healings, because they feel balanced.

If you are planning to do a cleanse or change your diet, a hands-on-healing can be an excellent support. Here are a few other ways to reground:

  • Go outside and walk or stand barefoot on the earth. Click here for more information on earthing.
  • Take five slow connected breathes deep into your belly. This is also quite energizing.
  • Visualize that grounding cord I wrote about last week. It really works.
