The Importance of Grounding / Earthing

I have known for a long time that Grounding and Earthing is very good for you, make contact with the Earth with bare feet. I knew it was good for your Energies, to Release the Energies you no longer need or are not good for you and to Recharge your Self with the Positive Energies of the Earth.

When I’m home I mainly walk bare foot and on a nice day I will sit outside in my front yard with bare feet in the grass to Ground my Self. But that only doesn’t seem enough to properly become Grounded and Earthed.

Grounding / Earthing

When I was living in New Zealand for a few years, on the South Island, there were a lot of people who walked bare feet on the streets. Coming from the Netherlands and never seen people do that, unless they were homeless, was a strange thing for me to see, and to do. But later on the understanding came that it was for Grounding and Earthing.

Now living in the UK I do realise that nobody really does that here either, and I’m sure people would look weird at you for walking bare foot on the streets. But actually, it should be more accepted and be normalised to do it, for our own Health benefits really.

Back in the old, old days people did not do anything else than walking bare foot, but since we started to wear shoes with artificial soles we basically became more disconnected and less grounded.

I did not know, or realised there is so much more to Grounding and Earthing. I did not know that Grounding and Earthing actually helps to release Inflammation within the Physical body. Inflammation is a cause of a lot of dis-eases and what makes our bodies ill. By reducing Inflammation and releasing it completely from our bodies, we Heal from so much illnesses.

Beside reducing and releasing Inflammation, Grounding and Earthing is also beneficial for Chronic Pain, Insomnia, Increasing Energy, Normalising Biological Rhythms, Normalising Blood Flow and Blood Pressure, Relieving Muscle Tension and Headache, Improving Menstrual and Female Hormone Symptoms, Lowering Stress, Decreasing Anxiety and Protecting the body from the effects of EMF’s ( electromotive force like voltage ).

This should be reason enough for all of us to walk more on bare foot or even at least sit outside for a while, every single day, to Ground and Earth your Self. To release all you have to release and to recharge with the energies we need to keep our bodies healthy.

Grounding and Earthing is a very important part of Self Healing, and I feel it should be taken more serious than just something “hippie” people do. As there is a true Science behind it and it’s proven Science as well.

So all I can say for my Self, and hopefully motivate You to do, is taking off our shoes more, put your bare feet on the Earth and let the Healing process begin!

Namaste,

Fall Asleep Meditations

You want to sleep peacefully, without a mind that is in overload of processing everything from the day, without strange dreams…..just peacefully

If you are familiar with Meditations you know that there are different ways to meditate. You can meditate on just purely relaxing music or sounds, you can meditate out in nature, you can do a guided meditation but you can also do a “fall asleep” meditation.

A “fall asleep” meditation is basically a guided meditation with a kind of hypnosis in it as well. Because of the hypnosis aspects in it, the meditation and the guided voice is still working for you in your subconscious, even though you are asleep and unconscious basically.

If I had a very busy day or watched a pretty intense movie for example, I can bet on it that I will dream a lot, but then a lot of weird stuff. I won’t say nightmares but still things that don’t make sense or are confusing or leaving me with a weird feeling when I wake up in the morning.

Almost every evening I either do a meditation just before going to bed, or I do a “fall asleep” meditation while in bed and just snooze off during the meditation. And it really helps with putting my mind at ease, no weird dreaming and waking up with a much better feeling.

I find the “fall asleep” meditations basically on YouTube and my favourite channel for these meditations is called “Unlock Your Life”. They have meditations with different subjects so I’m sure you can find one that suits you best as well.

I like to say, keep on dreaming but keep it at peace!

The Power of Meditation

 
Don't hate Meditate
 
Meditation becomes more and more populair as more people find a purpose in it.
It is a great tool when it comes to Stress-Release, Relaxing and Insomnia for example.
 
 
How do you Meditate?
 
Not everyone is familiar with it and still lots of people have the feeling they can’t relax or make their mind stop thinking about the daily things that goes around in their head.
When normal Meditation is very hard for you to start off with, and with normal Meditation I mean turning into Your Self in Silence, you can always start with Guided Meditations.
 
These Meditations are great and help you really come into a Meditative State. Important is to find a Guided Meditation where the voice who speaks to you sounds and feel comfortable.
I found Meditations before where I thought it would be great, until the voice started to speak……my hairs got straight up so to speak and I really had to turn it off as it made me feel very uncomfortable ;-).
 
YouTube is a very good source for Guided Meditations, there are lots of them! But again, try to find the ones who will work for you.
Also the length of a Meditation can be very different. When you first start with Guided Meditations don’t pick one that takes up to an hour or more as this can be too long for you. The best to start off with are the ones that take up to a maximum of half an hour or so.
 
 
What is exactly the Power of Meditation?
 
Meditation can help to Silence your Mind, to make your Mind clear, free from all the worries you are struggling with. See it as a sort of “empty the bucket”.
It’s a very Powerful tool for Letting Go and Releasing.
For people who have trouble with sleeping for example it can be very helpful when you Meditate just before going to bed. You don’t have to Meditate for half an hour at that moment, about 10 or 15 minutes is already sufficient.
Most people have trouble sleeping because all kind of stuff keeps running in their mind, so in this way you learn to Silence and Empty your Mind and after a couple of days you already should notice the difference.
 
So in every kind of way where there is Stress, Anger, Hate, Sadness or other “negative” feelings, Meditation is the Powertool to get rid of it.
You might not be succesful after your first time Meditation and if that’s the case just don’t give up but try to Meditate as often as possible.
I for myself try to Meditate every morning before my day starts and every night before I go to bed.
When you are not able to Meditate every day, no worries, some people only Meditate when they feel they need it.
And believe me, once you notice and feel the difference when you use Meditation or not, you Will know when you need it ;-)
 
Meditation is Not just for Spiritual people or for people who have certain Believes, Meditation is helpful for Everyone!
You will be surprised how many people use it in their daily Life. From the ordinairy neighbour till the CEO of a huge company.
It doesn’t matter what the purpose is as long as it works for you in the way you need it to work for you.
 
Don’t keep running around with an overloaded Mind, don’t hold on to Anger, Irritation and Stress as this effect your daily Life way to much.
It’s way better if you can be relaxed and focus on the things that are Really important.
You can make better decisions when you have a clear mind, your concentration improves, you remember things better when your Mind open and clear, so why keep walking around with a Mind that is full of stuff that doesn’t need to be there all the time, especially not when you want and need a good night sleep. You will feel way more rested when you have slept better with an empty Mind :-).
 
Now you know why it is been said “Don’t Hate, Meditate” ;-) , as it gives Inner Peace. And when you are more Peaceful you mirror that back on others as well and they will become more Peaceful towards you as well.
 
Have fun and have Peace!
