I recently posted this on the EW forum:
Carol and Fran came to visit last weekend (fun!) and Carol brought us some information about earthing, which is a way to hook yourself up to the grounding energy of the earth. There are pads and devices on the market to do this, and in fact Stevo and I bought a grounding pad many years ago. Ours hooked up to a grounded outlet, however, and we are now aware that hooking up to the 60hz electrical system of the house is not beneficial. So, we took a copper pipe, drilled a few holes in it, pounded it in the ground, then stripped the end of a speaker wire and wrapped the bare wire through the hole in the copper pipe.
We got a couple of grounding wrist straps from Radio Shack, which have a metal alligator clip on the other end. We stripped the other end of the speaker wire and clipped the alligator clip to it. Put on the wrist strap, which has a circle of metal that touches your skin, and voila! You’re grounded. It was amazing how I could immediately feel the energy changing in my system. I felt my feet tingling and my head was throbbing, and not in a bad way.
So basically when you do this, you’re making a direct electrical connection to the earth. It’s already been scientifically proven that we resonate with the energy of the earth, so it makes sense that this would feel good. I feel a very strong pulsing in my body when I’m connected to the grounding cord. In fact, Carol was the first to try it and I felt the pulsing just standing near her. We were able to hook a line up to the grounding pad we bought years ago, and we have that pad on our bed so we can ground all night. I wear one when I’m on my computer. Stevo wears one while sitting in his favorite recliner with our 20-year-old cat on his lap. She seems to be having a rejuvenation. We hooked up our dog Molly who has had a lot of health challenges over the years and she seems to be much more perky and happy.
I think this is the perfect complement to the spiritual grounding that I teach on my site and to my coaching clients. The two go hand-in-hand, just like boosting and gifting. You can research it yourself by doing an internet or youtube search on “earthing”. Be discerning because there is some disinfo out there on this subject (like “grounding is bad for you”, oh brother!). I’d be interested to hear if anyone else has tried this and how it feels to them.
