Earthing or Grounding

How can you protect yourself from being attacked by energy frequencies that have a negative effect, even promoting deterioration in your body, mind, and soul? If you could be stranded on an island in the middle of the ocean, without any electrically powered devices like televisions, phones, and computers, no fluorescent lighting, toxic textiles (carpeting, upholstery), unsafe paint, and/or air pollution, the sources of harmful energy frequencies (positive ions). Your island in the ocean is a powerful generator of natural energy that neutralizes harmful energy frequencies that you might be exposed to. So, living on an island, surrounded by beaches, is a good place to live if you want to battle the dangerous energy fields that you might otherwise be exposed to. Other great places that are positive energy generators are waterfalls, dense forests, and anywhere immediately following heavy rain and storms.

Earthing or Grounding

Another way to neutralize the effects of positive ions is by Earthing or Grounding. This is basically walking barefoot on the Earth, in the grass, on the sand, in the forest, on the dirt, anywhere that you are not separated by some unnatural insulator, like concrete, pavement, etc. When your bare feet contact the Earth in this manner negative ions flow up through your feet and through your whole body, just by making a sole connection to our planet.

This is why you feel so good when you kick off your shoes and walk around at a park or on the shore. It doesn’t take long, about 15 minutes, for the human body to be fully charged by negative ions. If you’re feeling off, or not well, you don’t have to be barefoot in the park all day, about fifteen minutes will be enough to keep you charged for the while day.

Your Body’s Ground

Your body is actually specifically designed to be grounded to the Earth. Not unlike electrically-powered devices that are designed for grounding which are manufactured with a separate wire for connecting to an electrical ground source, your body is premanufactured and equipped with a grounding gel in the Dermis layer of the skin. This grounding substance collects and stores negative ions for use throughout the day. It takes about 15 minutes to fully charge this grounding substance of the body. So, taking a 15 minute barefooted walk in the park or on the beach will last all day and even help you sleep more soundly at night.

How to Earth or Ground Yourself

Grounding yourself to the Earth requires a bare skin connection to the best negative ion charged source possible to charge the grounding gel that resides within the dermis later of your skin. Any bare skin surface will do, bare feet are the most convenient and therefore the most popular. No cheating, here, bare feet means bare feet. No socks, sandals, or flip flops. Just bare-naked feet on the Earth’s surface.

No insulation between your bare skin and the Earth. No carpet, AstroTurf, wood, concrete, asphalt, or other material separating you from the natural Earth.

What can you do if you live in a high-rise in the city? If you are finding it difficult to find some Earth to get grounded to, there is an alternative. You can get yourself a grounding mat (available on Amazon) that you can stand on with your bare feet for charging your grounding substance.
