Get Grounded: Tuning into Earth’s Natural Frequency

Written By Brady Wirick

Aloha, dear friends! 🌺  I am writing the next couple of blog posts from Hawaii! (Oahu). Today’s topic is grounding. Imagine, for a moment, feeling the pulse of the planet, resonating and vibrating in harmony with your very being. Sounds poetic? That’s grounding for you. Ever wondered why you feel so good when your feet are in the sand? That’s also grounding. Let’s dive in.

Grounding, also known as earthing, is a therapeutic technique that involves activities connecting you physically with the earth. This practice is based on the idea that being in direct contact with the ground allows your body to absorb negative ions from the earth, leading to various physical and mental health benefits. Grounding can be as simple as walking barefoot on grass, sand, or soil, swimming in natural bodies of water, or touching living plants. This connection is believed to facilitate the transfer of the earth’s electrons to the body, promoting physiological changes. These changes include reduced inflammation, improved sleep, decreased stress levels, and a general boost in well-being. Grounding aims to re-establish the biologically natural electrical connection between the human body and the earth, a connection that can often be disrupted by our modern lifestyles.

Why do we need to ground?

One of the primary reasons we need to ground is to counteract the potential negative impacts of modern living. Here’s a closer look:

  1. Always Wearing Shoes: Our predecessors walked barefoot or wore shoes made of natural materials, maintaining a direct connection with the Earth. Modern footwear, typically made of synthetic materials, acts as an insulator, preventing the Earth’s electrons from flowing into our body. This lack of connection can contribute to a buildup of positive ions in our body, which, over time, can lead to various health issues. By grounding, we reintroduce these beneficial electrons into our systems, potentially reducing inflammation and improving overall health.
  2. Exposure to EMFs (Electromagnetic Fields): With the technological advancements of the 21st century, we’re now exposed to an unprecedented amount of EMFs, emitted by devices like smartphones, Wi-Fi routers, and televisions. These EMFs can interfere with our body’s natural bioelectrical processes, potentially leading to disruptions in sleep, mood, and overall well-being. Grounding helps neutralize these disruptions by allowing our body to align with the Earth’s natural electrical state, thereby helping to shield and protect us from the inundation of artificial EMFs.

In essence, grounding acts as a natural reset for our bodies. As we move further away from our natural habitats and dive deeper into a digitized world, grounding serves as a reminder and a tool to realign ourselves, both physically and mentally. It’s like offering our bodies a slice of ancient, organic medicine amid our synthetic modern lives.

 

Schumann Resonance: Earth’s Heartbeat

Before we sail into the benefits of grounding, let’s talk about the Schumann Resonance. Named after the physicist Winfried Otto Schumann, it refers to the frequency of electromagnetic waves that circle our planet. It also represents the frequency at which lightning hits the earth. This frequency is, hold onto your lei, approximately 7.83 hz.

Now, what’s truly fascinating is that the dorsal columns of our spinal cord – essentially our body’s superhighway for sensory information – operate at, you guessed it, around 7.83 hz. These columns are responsible for about 85% of the input to our brain. In other words, our body’s natural “antenna” for sensation is essentially tuned to the same frequency as our Earth! The implications? We are, quite literally, wired to connect with our planet.

5 Benefits of Grounding:

1. Physical Wellness: Grounding can help reduce inflammation, pain, and stress by synchronizing our bodily systems with Earth’s natural rhythms.

2. Emotional Balance: By grounding, you can alleviate feelings of anxiety and depression, promoting a deeper sense of tranquility and well-being.

3. Improved Sleep: Numerous studies suggest that grounding techniques can help normalize sleep patterns, ensuring you wake up refreshed and rejuvenated.

4. Increased Energy: Feel that mid-day slump? Grounding might just be the jolt of natural energy you need, keeping fatigue at bay.

5. Enhanced Immunity: Grounding has been linked with a boost in the immune response, making you resilient to common ailments.

Now, the best way to ground is to kick off those flip-flops and bury your feet deep in the warm, inviting sand of the ocean beach. Even better, submerge yourself in the crystalline waters and let the ocean’s energy flow through you. I live in Idaho and this is rarely possible.

Here are a few tricks to ground wherever you are.

Urban Grounding: Three Ways to Connect in Concrete Jungles

1. House Plants: Let’s make it plantastic! Incorporating house plants into your living space isn’t just about aesthetics. Touching and caring for them can offer a slice of nature’s grounding essence. So, the next time you water your monstera or snake plant, take a moment to connect.

2. Grounding Mats: These are specifically designed mats that can be placed under your bed, work desk, or even yoga space. They mimic the effects of direct grounding, helping to neutralize free radicals and balance out your energy.

3. Urban Parks: Most cities boast of at least a few green spaces. Weekly or even daily visits, where you can remove your shoes and feel the grass, can work wonders. As they say, where there’s a park, there’s a way!

To wrap things up, let’s dive back into the Hawaiian spirit. Whether you’re sipping on a piña colada by Waikiki Beach or brewing coffee in a cramped apartment, remember: grounding isn’t just a practice; it’s a lifestyle. So here’s to sinking our toes deep into the sands of well-being and attuning our souls to the universal hum of 7.83 hz. 🤙🏝️

Mahalo for joining this grounding journey!
