Greetings! I would like to give you another useful meditation tip! For those of you who have experience with childbirth, and newborns, you know that skin to skin contact is recommended immediately after childbirth and through infancy. It’s known to help babies adapt to being outside the womb, babies stress levels, health, and bonding. Well, this is what a practice called Grounding does. During Meditation, it’s very beneficial to meditate with your barefeet or body to the ground. It’s the same as having skin to skin contact with mother earth. It’s an amazing bonding experience, as well as good for your health.
We are a bioelectrical beings living on an electrical planet. Our bodies operates electrically. All of our cells transmit multiple frequencies that run, for example, your heart, immune system, muscles, and nervous system. So we are very connected to the earth in that way. Now that we are more industrialized, we don’t get the energy from the earth as we once did ( or are supposed to. ) We now wear rubber and plastic-soled shoes that is a barrier to the Earth’s energy and live in high rises. So, now, a lot of us are disconnected and ungrounded from mother earth. And believe it or not, it can cause stress and illness just like a baby disconnected from it’s mother. There are numerous benefits of earthing!
The Benefits of Earthing & Grounding
According to emerging research, earthing may be beneficial in:
- Reducing inflammation
- Reducing chronic pain
- Improve sleep
- Increasing Energy
- Lowering stress and promoting calmness by reducing stress hormones.
- Normalizing biological rhythms including circadian rhythm
- Normalizing blood pressure and blood flow
- Relieving muscle tension and headache
- Speeds healing- used in some places to prevent bed sores
- Reducing jet lag
- Shortening recovery time from injury or athletic activity
- Reducing snoring
So it’s important to get that skin to skin contact with mother earth. It’s very soothing, beneficial, and relaxing to do during meditation! Allow your skin to touch soil, sand, water, or any conductive surface that is in contact with the earth. Dig your barefeet in, or lie down.
Now of course you don’t have to be in mud! But you get the idea😆. But, I have to admit, the warm squishy feeling of mud is a guilty pleasure for me! I also love running my fingers and feet through the warm sand at the beach! So when meditating, Close your eyes, take deep breaths, and allow the energy from the earth to pulsate throughout your body. Let the Earth’s electrons from the ground into your body. Become one, bond, and enjoy the skin to skin contact with the earth. If you don’t like being barefoot, consider wearing leather soled shoes. You should definitely feel more relaxed afterwards! Also, you can even kick it up a notch by listening to your Schumann Resonance beats at the same time!
Love and blessings to you!
