International Mother Earth Day

We live in an energetic world. The earth, and everything who lives on it are made up of energy. The energy that makes up our body, is the same energy that makes up everything around us – the bricks of your house, the plants in your garden, the refrigerator and dishwasher, your pet dog and cat.

Just like the electrical equipment in and outside our home, we need to be grounded. Scientists have found that bodily contact with the Earth’s natural electric charge stabilizes our physiology at the deepest levels. It reduces inflammation, pain, and stress, improves blood flow, energy, and sleep, and generates greater well-being.

When we are grounded we are:

  • Solid

  • Strong

  • Balanced

  • Less tense

  • Less stressed

Scientific research indicates that our body can be protected and that we feel better when we electrically reconnect to the Earth – when we are grounded.

Reported benefits include:

1. Decreased Levels of Inflammation and Pain

2. Reduced Stress Levels

3. Improved Circulation

Reiki and Grounding

Many people who come to me for a Reiki treatment are not grounded. They don’t feel grounded and because I feel their energy when doing Reiki, they don’t feel grounded.

Reiki is a great way to get grounded. Another very important way to get grounded and stay grounded or get grounded time and time again, is connecting with the earth.

International Mother Earth Day

Today is Mother Earth Day, a time to celebrate and honour mother earth which is essential to life. When we are connected to it, the earth can keep us grounded with increased strength, balance and resilience.

Easy ways to get grounded at home

  • Spend time barefoot outdoors with your feet on the earth

  • Practice forest bathing (Shinrin Yoku)

  • Dance outdoors

  • Cleanse your space with sage or incense

  • Walk / exercise

  • Meditate outdoors/in a forest, mountain, desert

  • Use grounding crystals –

    Turquoise, Dalmation/ Dalmatian Jasper, Hematite
