Earthing, as I practice it, is having your feet barefoot on the ground exchanging energy with the Great Mother Earth. Many, myself included, use this practice to improve our health. Those of you who have followed my blog know that my posts have been very sparse since April of 2013 as I have battled serious and sometimes life-threatening health problems. I have periods where I do better than other but just a couple of weeks ago I was back in the hospital with pancreatitis again. About a week after being home the weather was finally warm enough for the hubby, Witchlings, and my self to go to the lake for a swim.
Swimming helps immensely with my pain but this summer has been so chilly here in northwestern PA that we'd only gone once or twice, the lake water was too cold even for me. This particular day though was the hottest of the summer and we ventured out to the lake for a dip. While floating in the water I had an idea, "What if I mixed earthing with the power of water?" I found myself a spot where my feet could touch the floor of the lake and half stood, half floated there. I closed my eyes and focused on grounding (earthing). I asked the Great Mother to take my sick energy into her and transform it into something positive. Then I focused on the water flowing over me and I asked it to wash away my afflictions. Lastly I focused on both thoughts together using all kinds of mental imagery so that I could "see" it happening. I wasn't timing myself but I'd ballpark my time at between 20 and 30 minutes.
Normally, after a swim I'm exhausted but this time I felt refreshed and recharged. I was actually able to go fishing with Odin and the Witchlings. For nearly two hours I was able to help our oldest Witchling who is learning to fish. I felt like me again and I firmly believe that it was because of my experience in the lake.
