Just watched this video and found it very interesting. It runs through a course of events that helped heal a man and a community in Alaska through the process of Grounding. Grounding is the practise of allowing your feet and body to be in touch with the earth.
The video shows the effects of Grounding on house plants and cuttings. The plants that where Grounded grew bigger and lasted longer. Grounding was shown to change the flow of blood through the human body and have a big effect on inflammation in the body.
There are many documented cases of Grounding having profound effects on people. It really is not very natural for us to walk around and insulate ourselves from the ground.

We also have our other senses to work with, in addition to our physical senses.

The human body is the best "receiver" on Earth. We can detect many things that machines and technologies cannot, especially in the areas of emotion, feelings and consciousness. Two subtle energy systems on the frontiers of human perception, the electromagnetic fields of underground water streams and ley lines, are beginning to be recognized, studied and used today. These Earth energies are important because ancient monuments such as stone circles, as well as cathedrals and all kinds of historic sacred spaces, are invariably situated on centers of Earth energies.

A thread on "improving one's life thru earthing" was just posted this week with that same video. I don't know how to do that magic 'linky thing' or I would.

I believe this to be very true. I often go out in the back and take off my shoes and stand there. Raising your arms makes you feel tingly as the energy flows through you. Walking on the wet sand at the beach does the same thing. Too bad people would look at you strange if you raised your arms at the beach.

I did a lot of studying on this and a lot of thinking. I think it is very possible that this energy flowing through us can cure a disease. S&F for bringing this up. I have read at least a twenty articles on this and spent a lot of time on related articles to try to figure out if it was possible. I'm convinced it is. Fear makes us walk with shoes on. The grass has chemicals on it that can help us.

I agree it is a fear. We are taught that we are removed from nature and something separate. We are not sepeate we are part of nature and nature is part of us.

If the video above is even half true then it is one of the greatest health rediscoveries ever made. It is so simple and makes sense too.

I enjoy walking bare foot when the weather allows. It feels nice and cleans the feet...

take care

I have been thinking about laying your hands on someone and healing. I have seen this in the practices of churches. I think it is real.

Energy bleeds out through our hands and feet better than most parts of our bodies. That is why it is important to wear gloves and warm footwear in the winter because without these we loose a lot of energy. So why can't we use our hands to give someone else this energy to help them when they are sick. Most times sickness is caused by a lack of structured energy to fight the illness. Most people die from the heart strength/beat and BP going too low. If your energy level is too high it scrambles your brain and the immune system goes awry. If it goes to low the immune system can't function for lack of energy. I see very little research done by the medical trades on this concept. That is why I think it may be real. If you can give energy to your child through touch than a doctor is not needed as often. I see motive for not testing this.

I think some medical organizations are starting to look at this but they are not really researching the reasoning behind it. They just include spirituality and religion in their practices. This differs from the Yoga which is trying to create calmness and inner restructuring of energy paths on your own. If you think meditation can heal you, meditation can help accomplish this goal. Prayer is not much different than meditation, yoga and religion have a relationship.

Sorry for getting off topic.

So when you stand on the ground the energy goes through your hair and head through your feet. This lines up your polarity and can help us. When you stand in front of a fire, the fire pulls ions or neutrinos right through us, if you do not rotate, your back gets really cold as the ions go through it lessens the energy on the back. Over underground moving water or even by the lakeshore, there is energy flow, these places are good places to ground. A swimming pool can have a little effect if there is moving water. Remember, moving water does not freeze at low temperatures, it has energy...they refer to this as negative Ions. That is the good form of Radon, there are three or possibly more forms of radon, not all things classified as radon are bad for us. They want us to believe that all radon is bad. Even too much of this good radon is not good for us either, you shouldn't live right above a holy site. It is a place of healing not a place of living.

So there are more than one way to use this grounding, sitting in front of a campfire works, walking barefoot on a beach, and fishing near a stream. I suppose being on a boat is good also but I think it might bleed out through the sides of the boat. As long as energy is going through us slowly it can help. It is like the helping hands of the healer.

So I guess I am going a little looney, believing there may be something to all this stuff even though there is no evidence because nobody seems to do scientific testing on it. Can't have evidence if nobody with the equipment and knowledge does the research I suppose. This way the medical field will keep growing and supply work for the population.

I thought this was an incredible discovery.. The fact that the man who was in a wheelchair for 30 yrs of his life.. Was able to with the help of a zimmer frame and special leg things could walk after a few weeks of being grounded..!

Now to me that seemed incredible...!! If being grounded can be so beneficial to us then why is it not being put out there...! There are so many peeps in pain and suffering and if this Earthing can help us with so many different ailments, then people should know..!

Very enjoyable watch.. Thanks for the thread..

We have some lovely stone circles and standing stones up our way. The biggest set of these is Callanish Stones, they are lovely. I have often wondered if these stones where used for some kind of earth acupuncture or something. I tried water dowsing last year for the first time and was surprised to find it worked for me. There is plenty we do not understand about our own senses and the energy forces around us.

Its not being put out there because there is no scientific evidence to show that it works. There may be documented cases but until you can repeat it in a lab its nothing more than a fringe cure.

For all you know its a placebo effect where people believe it helps them so it does. Trust me, if there were any science to this whatsoever, the big pharm people would have jumped onto this a long time ago. There's money to be made in any cure.

You should equate it to someone becoming better after visiting a faith healer.

If you have time watch the video. Scientific studies have been done in some cases that show that show that Earthing does have a real and measurable effect on the body. It has been objectively recorded for example that it thins blood and increases the flow and count of cells. There are other examples in the video too..

As I said, it may work for some people but there is no scientific evidence of why it works that can be applied to all people.

Our bodies work on physical reactions....put this thing in and it does this, and it can be repeatable on people everywhere. Take aspirin for example, we know what it does, it has been proven over and over, and the results are expected.

Because earthing has been proving to have some results in some people does not make it scientific other than the fact that it had an effect here or there. We cannot say that conducting this process will always have this anticipated effect which we do with other scientific processes.

If you can show me a study of earthing that has the same repeated effects on the majority of people being tested then you have scientifically proven its value. For example, have 100 people conduct this process and if 99 of them have their blood thinned then you have shown that it is indeed a result of earthing.

Has this been done?
