Lets get grounded.

With the arrival of Spring, and the ability to soon run our feet through the luscious grasses that surround us, makes me joyous beyond belief.

We HAVE to remove ourselves from the chit chatter of the mind and reconnect with the present moment. What most people don’t know is that grounding, also known as earthing, is also a practice performed as a means of gathering electrical energy from the earth through physical touch. The earth is like a giant battery constantly being recharged by solar radiation and emitting this powerful source of energy and healing to everything and everyone it touches. By walking barefoot outside and digging your toes through the earth, the free electrons in Earth’s surface are absorbed directly into the skin. These electrons help regulate the systems of the body, improve internal functioning, restore overall balance, and promote restful sleep and sustained energy. Sound hokey? It's the farthest thing from it. Nature surrounds us for a reason

The same way we recharge our cell phones, the cells in our body rejuvenate through contact with the ground’s natural electrical pulses.

While it would be amazing to kick of your shoes right now and frolic with abandon across fields (my park is still brown! Come on April Showers), through streams, and over mountains, most of us do not have access to so many of nature’s beauties.

So how can we achieve these healing benefits without touching nature’s beautiful soil?

Fill your body with PLANTS that are pure, close to the ground, and in their natural state. Get to know these plants. Touch them, smell them, and focus on the array of textures and flavors as they enter your body. Let this practice be a means of connecting you to the earth and sky, a means of reawakening your connection with the earth through your food. When you make a salad are you truly focusing on the healing properties that are

With the warmer temperatures that are soon to bless us, and the greenery that will begin bloom and bud - unplug, take your shoes off and TRULY connect. Ground yourself to one the most precious and breathtaking things on our planet - Nature. It will always be there for you, and if you lean in, and ground yourself in HER, you will be blessed with bountiful experiences, feelings, relationships, opportunities and connections.

Happy Friday!

love & light
