Earthing is Physically Connecting to Nature
Disconnection with the earth’s energy can cause stress, anxiety, and illness. Walking barefoot will connect you to Mother Earth.
Truly, negative ions help balance out our positive ions. Walking barefoot will stimulate veins to activate the nervous system. Studies show positive effects the earth has on our brain activity.
Essentially, Mother Gaia balances the internal bioelectrical environment. Connecting with Gaia gives a boost to the physiological process. It slows down premature aging, helps you relax, and get better sleep.
Walking barefoot sends antioxidant rich electrons into damaged cells that are causing inflammation and heart issues. The increase in oxygen can lower chronic pain.
Bathing in nature’s frequency will boost our own energetic bodies. It’s a natural remedy for depression, stress, and anxiety.

Grounding and Earthing Clear Excess Lower Energies Stuck in the Aura
Stagnant thoughts and lower emotions hang out in the auric field. Thoughts are electrical and emotions are magnetic.
We can release positively charged ions to the earth. Grounding lets us discharge physical, mental, and emotional energy.
Accordingly, this helps to reach a calm, neutral state and balance.
Mother Gaia is a limitless supply of electrons. Regularly connecting with her will stabilize our own electrical environment for organs, tissues, and cells.
Grounding is especially Important for:
- Sensitive people
Connect Your Grounding Cord
Grounding will help when you feel anxiety.
First, close your eyes and take a few deep breaths. Imagine a cord emerging from your root chakra and growing into the earth.
See it travel all the way to the heart of Mother Gaia and anchor the cord there.
Next, imagine that she is sending her energy back up to you through the cord. Finally, let the cord travel up and anchor into your heart chakra.
Create and connect a grounding cord to Gaia before any spiritual practice, performing magick, or meditation.
Other Ways to Ground:
- Eat root vegetables like beets, radish, turnip, parsnip, carrots, sweet potato, ginger, garlic, and turmeric.
- Spend time gardening
- Take a salt bath
- Drink water
- Using a Zen Garden
- Using crystals like Black Tourmaline, Hematite, Black Kyanite, Shungite and Black Obsidian, Smokey Quartz, and Petrified Wood.
Magnetic Zen Bottle is an alternative to the dry landscaping of a Zen Garden. The bottle helps you stay grounded, and that’s where we manifest. Raking the sand in a traditional Zen garden creates grooves representative of flowing water. The Zen Bottle is vice versa. The magnet pulls the magnetic ink to it. This is when you focus on the goal. It tells the universe that you’re ready to surrender and go with the flow.
