No, I don’t mean the form of punishment where you send your kids for x amount of time to their room, quiet corner or they have to remain in the house opposed to playing with their friends. Lets be honest with latter we merely punish ourselves. To make it even worse, my kids have a memory on these matters that match the one of a goldfish, in 3 seconds they have forgotten what they did in the first place.
No I mean grounding as in earthing, for example by standing barefoot in the grass, walk at the beach, swim in the ocean or do some gardening.
Nature works amazingly simple. If we walk barefoot we connect with earth and we exchange electrons and their energy. For a more scientific description read www.articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2018/01/20/grounding-benefits.aspx
Think for a moment of all these proverbs: losing ground, feeling grounded, loosing ground, someone is down to earth… They indicate an imbalance or shift of energy and that earth or the ground has to do with it.
Now I find it amazing observing my kids. It was just their birthday and from all those gifts their favorite are the gumboots. Living in the tropics they typically run barefoot at any given opportunity, but since they have the gumboots they are even more outdoors than usual. They are creating mud puddles to jump in, or alternatively as a spa for their dinsosaurs. They run in the rain. They play gardener with their little wheelbarrow. They are constantly in touch with nature. They naturally ground themselves. I believe school or preschool adds stress to our children. As well as being around electrical equipment with its currents and voltages, which have an impact on our body function. We do not just need to recharge our phone, which by the way is more grounded in the power socket than we are at times, we also need to recharge ourselves. We all know earth has a magnetic field. Its energy. If we walk barefoot we connect with earth and this energy we can discharge our negative energy and recharge.
How fun it is to watch kids doing it naturally. They don’t know why they love being rather outside than watching TV they simply follow their instincts if we let them. Being out in nature running around, creating games and developing naturally is the perfect stress relief for them. It is natural.
It took me an introduction into chakras to realize that my children are capable by themselves to keep their bodys balanced. We should follow the lead of our kids more often.
