Earth energy fields, often associated with “Earthing,” also known as “grounding,” which is a practice that involves connecting the human body to the Earth’s surface, typically by physically touching it with bare skin, such as through direct contact with soil, sand, grass, or water. The concept behind earthing is based on the idea that the Earth carries a natural negative electrical charge from electrons, and grounding oneself to the Earth’s electrical energy can have potential health benefits.
Here are some of the benefits associated with earth energy fields for human health:
- Reduced Inflammation: One of the central claims of earthing is that direct contact with the Earth’s surface can help reduce inflammation in the body. Chronic inflammation is linked to a wide range of health issues, including arthritis, heart disease, and various autoimmune disorders. Supporters argue that grounding can help neutralize free radicals and reduce oxidative stress, thereby decreasing inflammation.
- Improved Sleep: Some people report better sleep quality after spending time grounded. It is believed that contact with the Earth’s energy can help regulate circadian rhythms and promote healthier sleep patterns. This, in turn, can lead to increased energy levels, improved mood, and better overall health.
- Stress Reduction: Advocates of earthing claim that connecting with the Earth can have a calming effect on the nervous system, reducing stress and anxiety. This may be due to the balancing of the autonomic nervous system, which can help improve mood and overall well-being.
- Pain Relief: Some individuals suggest that grounding may provide relief from chronic pain conditions, such as fibromyalgia and back pain. It is believed that the practice may help restore the body’s natural electrical balance and reduce pain signals.
- Enhanced Immune Function: Although more research is needed, some studies suggest that earthing may have a positive impact on the immune system. This could be attributed to reduced inflammation, improved sleep, and stress reduction, which collectively support a healthier immune response.
- Antioxidant Effects: Earthing is thought to increase the body’s supply of electrons, which can act as antioxidants. These electrons are believed to help counteract the damaging effects of free radicals and improve overall health.
- Improved Circulation: Some proponents of earthing argue that it can improve blood circulation, which in turn can support cardiovascular health and reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases.
- Mental Clarity and Energy: Many people who practice earthing report feeling more mentally alert, focused, and energetic. This improved mental state is sometimes attributed to a reduction in the body’s exposure to electromagnetic fields and a closer connection with nature.
- Electromagnetic Field (EMF) Reduction: Earthing proponents also argue that the practice can help reduce exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMFs) from electronic devices by balancing the body’s electrical charge.
How well are you aligned with the big, all-encompassing fields of the Earth?
There are three primary axes within the Earth’s Big Field. These are the vertical, equatorial and magnetic polar axes. These axes cross through the midline of your body, slightly to the left, where your heart is located. We know that the heart has a powerful electromagnetic field and that it plays a hugely important role in communicating information to and from the brain and to the cells. We also know that our cells are tuned to their environment, with the cell membrane serving as a kind of receiver and transmitter for environmental signals. Research shows that cells are not only tuned to their immediate environment, but to the energies of the three axes of the Earth Field as well. When the body is misaligned with one or more of these axes, information flow can simply go askew.
What may that mean for you?
- You may be feeling knocked off balance or not securely “in” your body.
- Perhaps you are not sure of your place in the world.
- This can happen when we feel uprooted by a move to a different country, or even a new home.
- We can also feel on unsteady ground in our work or in our relationships.
The effect of not being energetically grounded or balanced can take myriad forms, but generally causes flightiness, disorganization, scattered thoughts, lack of focus, impatience, and erratic emotions.
The Equatorial Axis is formed by the Earth’s rotation. It runs horizontally through the middle of your body. In bioenergetics it appears to be related to a fundamental aspect of biochemistry, which is the exchange of electric charge between molecules.
- One aspect of this is the exchange of electrons between free radicals and antioxidants. Free radicals are damaging molecules that lack an electron (a negatively charged particle). They will “steal” an electron from another molecule in order to become complete. This triggers a chain reaction where the now incomplete molecule steals an electron from its neighbor. This process damages our cells and is part of the aging process. Antioxidants freely give up one of their electrons and so they help to protect our cells.
- Another place this swapping of electronic charge occurs is in the liver, where the liver transforms toxins into forms that can be safely excreted from the body. The organs that sit in the middle of the body, including the liver and the large intestine, may be affected by an Equatorial Axis misalignment. Metabolic processes such as energy production and sugar regulation may be affected by an imbalance here.
The Vertical Axis is generated by gravity. It runs from head to toe through your body. There appears to be a strong correlation with this axis and the autonomic nervous system’s control of functions like blood pressure, heart rate variability, and sleep.
- Any form of sustained stress can push the Vertical Axis out of balance. We can struggle to adapt to stress when our mechanisms for coping with it are being pushed to their limit. Symptoms like feeling light-headed or dizzy on standing, having to shade the eyes from bright light, heart palpitations, and insomnia can all be related to nervous system symptoms related to long-term stress.
- Misalignment of the Vertical Axis can also be associated with geopathic stress. Geopathic stress relates specifically to the health effects of vibrations and fields that emanate from Earth’s interior and flow across its surface. The energies detrimental to health arise especially from caves and subterranean caverns or from certain types of underground streams and aquifers, fault lines, and particular kinds of mineral and coal deposits.
The Magnetic Polar Axis is generated by the magnetic poles of the Earth. The Earth is cocooned in magnetic fields, which emerge both from the interior molten core of the Earth and from electromagnetic waves coming in from the universe around us.
There are many biological processes that are magnetic in nature. Your brain has magnetic aspects to it, as does your blood. Research has shown that most living organisms, from coral polyps to human beings, are affected by the pull of magnetism from the moon and by Earth’s own magnetic field. Our internal body clock is set not only by light, but also by magnetic fields.
This axis is also associated with how your body creates and distributes heat. When out of alignment you may be experiencing heat regulation issues such as having cold hands or feet, or variations in temperature within your body (sometimes people have a hot or cold patch, or experience a temperature variance between the left and right side of their body). You may also find it harder to adjust to changes or extremes in temperature and have difficulty with sweating (too much or too little).
Issues: Big field alignment issues were less of a problem in days gone by, when people spent their time within a localized region, travelled slowly, and were in direct contact with the Earth and its natural fields. Today’s high-speed, high-rise, high-energy society is bathed in artificial sound, light and magnetic influences, coupled with a chemically toxic environment. People travel vast distances at intense speeds, encountering a rapid variation in magnetic and gravitational influences. Our fast-paced lives give the body little time to rest and realign itself and regain its natural harmony with the Earth. The net effect is that people are frequently misaligned with the Earth’s big fields. It is much easier for the body to engender positive change when alignment is restored.
