I remember when I was little everyone around me said, “You need to ground yourself.”
I remember thinking, am I like the kids in my class that take medication. They were constantly bouncing off of the walls. Yet mother would not hear of it. So I got, “Sit Down! Put your hands in your lap. Now feel the ground under you.” O.K. Now I was grounded and it felt like it. I used to pretend that I could attach myself to the ground beneath me, and then couldn’t get up.
Now, here is a new twist, how should I be grounding? I am looking around the internet after typing in methods of grounding and this website, “LibidoBliss.com, pops up with an article on grounding and the benefits to your sexual health.
Interesting, why would grounding have anything to do with sex. It sparked my interest, so I began reading the blog and there was information about ground mats. Hay you can not make this stuff up. The title is, “About Grounding Yourself.”
Sitting on the ground with my hands in my lap is called “Earthing”. It’s supposed to be healthy for a person to sit and be quiet. Who considers meditation to be a part of grounding. The article specified that you must be in contact with either the dirt or grass.
Now I have a problem! where I live you do not want to sit on the dirt and we have no grass. Here in the desert the dirt is full of creepy crawlies, along with thistle, thorns, needles, and twigs. Being that as it is, I went outside, placing a towel on the ground and sat down. I cleared my mind, and concentrated on the ground beneath me.
No farm would be complete without a few dogs
It was a quiet morning, my eyes were closed and I was breathing slowly in and out. Then a very familiar sound reached me. My eyes flew open as I looked around. There was my year and a half old pup, running full speed in from the field, straight toward me. In my head I could hear him saying, “Mom’s on the ground, play time.”
Somehow sitting on the ground wasn’t such a good idea. He turned just before he got to me and bumped me with his rear. The next thing I remember is laying flat on the ground staring right into those soft brown-eyed face with the dripping tongue. He had a huge smile and his tail was going so fast it wiggled his entire body. Then it happened, that tongue hit my face.
So I’m thinking, that sitting on the ground outside the front door was not going to work. It is beautiful here in the high country, but I live in a house that has a basement with a cement floor and a second story. How do you ground yourself on cement or when you are 12 feet above the ground?
Why do you ground yourself?
By what the article says, people are exposed to a lot of EMF(Electromagnetic Flux) radiation, coming from Cell phones, cell phone towers, and microwaves oven, etc. Even while we are sleeping, we are being exposed to positive Ions from everything in the air around us.
Alright why should I care if I am being exposed to these positive ions? I did a little more research on the internet and found out that too much positive ions can cause headaches, muscle pain, and irritability.
So how do I reverse this process?
People today don’t have enough negative ions in there reserve to counteract the positive ions we are accumulating from electronic gadgets. The ground outside of my house is looking a little more inviting. All I need is 20 minutes a day to sit and soak up Mother Earth’s energy.
Ideas for rejuvenating my body
Go down to the beach and walk on the sand with the sea lapping at your heals. The sea is a natural source of salt water.
Hmm, I can think of many reasons not to go to the public beaches in Southern California. Possibility the sewage dump 8 miles out from the shore. This may have changed but when I grew up in Southern California there were times that the beach smelled like garbage. I also remember the tar on the sand and going home with black feet.
Salt Water Baths
I just love baths. Bubbly, bubbles surround you and you just lay there and soak till your fingers and toes become wrinkled. Somehow it is not the same as the ocean, and the feeling only lasts a few hours. Does anyone here understand what is happening. I am still confused. What is it I am missing?
But what does this have to do with sex?
Going back to the article from “LibidoBliss.com“ I read on. Do I wear shoes all the time? Do I ever go barefoot outside? That made me laugh. OK, how many of you take your shoes off daily and go outside for 10 to 15 minutes. Do you even take the time out of your daily life to crunch the dirt up between your toes? I don’t.
There are a lot of things that cause us not to pay attention to any of this until our joints hurt and then the entire nervous systems finds itself being compromised.
Now my pH levels are out of whack, and my estrogen is spiraling out of control., I am moody, my PMS is acting out and I want to pick up the couch which my husband is sitting on and throw them both out the front door. (FYI), I really had a friend that did that. It was not funny when it happened, but now I laugh at her). Apparently these elements are caused by our detachment from the earth.
How do we Balance our pH
Our pH is in balance when you are neither to acidic or Alkaline. The total pH scale ranges from 1 to 14, with 7 being neutral. For example if you have a swimming pool, you will be always checking the water to make sure it is not to acidic. For more information on pH balancing go to Wikipedia, it has a good explanation.
Do we always need to be Politically Correct?
Earthing is a politically correct word. What does this have to do with sex?
I continue to read the article as it winds down telling me about all the things that are around me that are causing me to become positively charged. The article is right, my love life has drifted out the door with my positive ions chasing it all the way to Alaska. So what can I do about it.
Let’s get down to the bottom of the Problem.
What does Earthing or Grounding have to do with sex. My opinion and I have a lot of them, is that this body we are wearing needs to be attached to Mother Earth a lot more than what anyone of us can or want to admit. If I am out of balance within this body then the body will try to tell me something is wrong. Sore muscles, sore throat, cranky, headache, etc. So the best thing I can do is find a cure. It appears that a Grounding Mat may be the answer.
