Yesterday just before sunset,
Eric the ex and I drove to Sooke, BC in order to explore areas near the water since we were on the island (Victoria, BC). We ended up exploring a total of 3 separate locations. In Shirley, BC, just further into Sooke, there was a beach that just beckoned me to take off my socks and shoes. There was a cold wind present and it also just started to rain but this didn’t stop me from doing the following: for the next 22 minutes, I skipped, hopped, danced and ran around on the beach, with my bare feet on the sand, letting the waves come up to my toes, all the way up to my ankles. I let the ocean tickle me with it splashing, salty water — this was my 1st intentional earthing experience!
Skin on sand = marvellous!
I was appreciating the “here and now” at a place that was amazingly nourishing. After I finished this salt water meditation, I remained invigorated for a good 2 hours until we got to dinner! From this one experience, I’m convinced that I would benefit by grounding myself daily, whenever I can, because it really makes me feel so good!
My introduction to Earthing
Earthing a.k.a. Grounding is actually an ancient practice that is just being re-discovered by many people today! If you’d like to learn more, please checkout Alaskan filmmaker Steve Kroshel’s website.
Why Ground Yourself?
I’ll let Dr. Stephen Sinatra tell you why – Watch his YouTube video embedded below for your viewing pleasure!
If you’d like to see the full documentary The Grounded, I just found it right now on the Earthing Canada website. Watch it for free online, streaming here: http://earthingcanada.ca/grounded-documentary/
Have you heard of this grounding practice before from your elders?
Do you have any experiences with grounding you’d like to share? If so, please send me an email or leave a comment on this blog. Thanks!
Let Mother Earth touch and heal you today!
I hope this post encourages you to go outside, barefoot! Let me leave you with this quote that I thought really goes with the pic above. NAMASTE!
Abundance is dancing all around us. All we have to do is get on the dance floor and say hi.
