Sometimes, the deepest and most profound truths and energy-based practices can be found in the simplest and most gracefully elegant of ways.
Take the notion of Grounding — or Earthing — for instance: mostly forgotten in this day and age, the idea that we are intrinsically connected to our planet in countless physical and ethereal ways is considered redundant by many and not even considered at all by most. Yet, our bodies are biological pearls of wonder and mystery, connected to Earth and her elements in every way possible.
When we remember this, and make it into a daily practice in our lives, the hidden mystery of the universe, of creation itself, opens up to one and all of us again, simply because we again choose consciously to connect and be part of the majestic tapestry of creation, which ultimately we are of course, whether we ‘like’ to be or not.
Let’s take a moment, take off our shoes, and discover more about this astounding interconnectedness that all of us, all life on Earth, seems to be part of:
In this film, an Alaskan village’s community is transformed from a problem-based, pain-filled reality into a love-based, care-free one by the consistent act of Grounding alone. Follow the film-maker’s journey, as he and those around him discover the secret of the healing powers of our mother Earth, Gaia herself.
The film features Dr. Mercola and many other sources of nature-based healing research.
It goes without saying that Grounding or Earthing is about much more than physical health alone. These effects, however, are so intrinsically personal that we ended up deciding not to write about them in-depth — this is a uniquely internal journey of self-discovery.
Create Your Own Earthing Sheet
Living indoors disconnects us from our natural electric state and hinders our bodies ability to tell time. Earthing sheets simulate the effect of sleeping in direct contact with the Earth and reconnect us with the Schumann resonance.
If you like to create your own Earthing sheet, check out this video, which offers you a how-to guide in only 15 minutes:
