Meditation Monday: Grounding Meditation (AKA: Earthing) with Free Guidebook

What if you could sit on the grass in your backyard, enjoying the sun during the day, or moon at night, and heal inflammation throughout your body?

When I was a child, my sister and I went barefoot all summer. No matter where we went, no matter what we were doing, we were barefoot. Little did I know, I was sending healing energy throughout my body all summer long.

About a year or so ago, I watched a documentary called GROUNDED,  which discusses the concept of GROUNDING OR EARTHING. This documentary was my introduction to grounding. I hope you can take the time to watch it.  In the movie, a small town in Alaska experiments with grounding and documents the healing that occurs.

I just rewatched it today, for the first time in a year, and forgotten just how phenomenal it this film truly is. I HIGHLY recommend this to anyone, ESPECIALLY if you are a skeptic to the concept of grounding. This film just may change your mind. (The ending just may bring a few tears to your eyes! 😉 ) Here it is:

Grounding is the concept of connecting to the Earth’s energy, usually by walking barefoot on the earth. Basically, when we connect with Earth’s energy, we absorb that energy, which destroys damage causing free radicals in the body.

Here is a terrific infographic which discusses the concept:

of the effects of grounding on the body.






I like to combine stone stacking meditations and grounding into one. So, basically, I do my meditations/stone stacking outside, when possible, with bare feet. This way, I enjoy the benefits of meditation and the benefits of grounding into one practice. Below, I’ve included a 30 minute guided grounding meditation and a 1 hour long video of grounding meditation music. So, next time you want to meditate, kick off your socks and shoes and meditate outside. Give it a try!

About Tamara Hoerner (1261 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.
