What is Grounding and How Do I Ground Myself?
Grounding is an ancient activity that spreads through universal cultures, traditions and spiritual practices over hundreds of years. It is simply reconnecting and realigning out energies with the Earth. When we allow our body to connect with the Earth, we enhance our mental, physical, and emotional well being and create a more sound, clear way of thinking. Vitality, health, and wellness are benefits of allowing yourself to be grounded with the Earth. It’s a great exercise, and best of all it’s free!
Grounding is important for many different reasons. In our modern world of technology and high rise apartments, concrete buildings and phone towers we need ensure our body, mind, and soul escapes the constant influx of electromagnetic radiation (EMF’s) from devices such as phones, TV, computers, WiFi, microwaves, etc. A constant influx of these EMF’s create an increase in free radicals and positive electrons. The reason why free radicals aren’t as awesome as they sound is because they are often missing a molecule, and in order to make itself complete it will try latch onto other molecules in our body, which can injure our cells and damage our DNA. And you don’t need to be a genius to know that damaged DNA isn’t a good thing.
So back to the less morbid reason of this post. It can be difficult when you can’t even remember the last time your feet or hands actually touched real ground. When your body’s energy is off or unbalanced, it’s likely you need to practice grounding yourself. The Western world is largely set up in a way that peoples connection to the Earth is greatly hindered.
One reason I get reminded about by teachers is that I need to regularly ground myself in order to bring all my thoughts, ideas, and creativity into a place of real. It’s all very good and well to receive messages and help through dreams or signs etc, but for you to make sense and make reality of your ideas you need to ground yourself, pulling those messages, ideas, and knowledge down from your mind and into your physical body. Grounding might just be one of the most important, yet neglected exercises we know of. At the very least, you learn to put yourself first even just for ten minutes.
