The importance of our roots and effective grounding


Grounding is a technique that helps to release electrical charge and stress stored in the nervous system by connecting to the earth. By making direct contact with the slightly negative electromagnetic charge of the earth, it helps to balance out the positive charge that builds up in the nervous system, especially during times of high stress or trauma. This neutralizes the nervous system charge and helps to regulate it better. The electrons from the earth also help to counteract free radicals that contribute to the body's immune and inflammatory responses. Inflammation is a primary factor in many diseases, including degenerative conditions like osteoarthritis. Grounding for a period of time can significantly reduce inflammation, as evidenced by the before-and-after thermography images below where you can see a marked decrease in inflammation after just 4 nights.

Red = increased inflammation

Blue = low to no inflammation. ⁣

⁣The image on the right was taken on 7-15-05 after 4 nights of sleeping on the ETT sleep system. Note the significant improvement in inflammation in the entire low back region.⁣


What does grounding help with?

Grounding has been studied in relation to various health benefits, such as reducing inflammation, pain, and stiffness, improving circulation, blood pressure, and blood viscosity, increasing heart rate variability (HRV) and vagal tone, lowering cortisol levels and stress, and improving symptoms of depression, anxiety, tiredness, fatigue, and mood. Grounding has also been found to have positive effects on blood glucose levels, immunity, sleep, thyroid function, metabolism, serum electrolytes, wound healing, athletic performance and recovery, and more. One study published in the Journal of Inflammation Research in 2015 found that grounding affects the living matrix, which is the central connector between living cells. According to the review study published in the Journal of Inflammation Research in 2015, grounding has been found to have positive effects on chronic inflammation, wound repair, and autoimmune diseases by allowing the human body to make electrically conductive contact with the Earth's surface.

The Vital Role of the Root Space: Exploring the Significance of the Root Chakra, Sacral Chakra, Sexual Organs, Sacrum, and Womb

The root space, which encompasses the root chakra, sacral chakra, sexual organs, sacrum, and womb, is crucial to our physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. It is the foundation of our energy system and provides us with a sense of safety, security, and stability. The root chakra, located at the base of the spine, is responsible for grounding us to the earth and helping us connect with the physical world. It is associated with our basic survival needs, such as food, shelter, and safety, and when this chakra is balanced, we feel a sense of security and stability.

The sacral chakra, located in the lower abdomen, is associated with our emotions, sexuality, and creativity. It is responsible for our ability to experience pleasure and joy in life, and when this chakra is balanced, we feel a sense of well-being and emotional stability. The sexual organs, sacrum, and womb are all connected to the root space and play a vital role in our reproductive health and sexual vitality. They also hold emotional and energetic imprints that can impact our overall well-being.

When the root space is blocked or imbalanced, it can manifest in physical, emotional, and spiritual symptoms such as anxiety, depression, chronic pain, reproductive issues, and a lack of motivation or energy. By fostering a healthy and balanced root space, we can cultivate a sense of safety and security in our lives, tap into our creativity and sexuality, and experience a deeper connection to ourselves and the world around us.

The Primal Importance of the Root Space: Healing the Body's Early Traumas and Energies

During the course of our lives, experiences such as sexual encounters, birth, trauma and illness can have a profound impact on these root spaces. This can result in imbalances or blockages in the corresponding chakras, which can manifest in various physical, emotional and mental symptoms such as anxiety, depression, sexual dysfunction, chronic pain and more.

It is therefore crucial to cultivate awareness and healing in these areas in order to restore balance, release trauma and connect with our primal selves. This can involve practices such as mindfulness, meditation, bodywork, movement and energy healing. By doing so, we can experience greater vitality, pleasure, creativity, and a deeper sense of safety and connection with the world around us.

Healing our root space, physically through structural alignment and release of muscular tension and fascia knots, emotionally through release of fear and power plays and spiritually through release of karmic conditioning helps to reconnect you to your BODY/VIBRANT SEXUALITY/FAMILY/ EARTH/ANCESTORS/TRUE SELF/LIFE FORCE.

The Power of Root Space: Releasing Fear, Shame, and Self-Doubt

Our root space, including the root chakra, sacral chakra, sexual organs, sacrum, and womb, reflects our primal development and sense of safety and connection to the world. By going deeper into this space, we can release fear, shame, and self-doubt, and nourish ourselves for growth and blossoming. Just as a tree with strong roots can withstand the winds of change, we too can anchor ourselves and flourish in the void, unafraid of the mystery and intimacy with ourselves and others.

The root space, which includes the root chakra, sacral chakra, sexual organs, sacrum, and womb, is an essential aspect of our being. It is where we hold our primal energy and connect to the world around us. When we have unresolved traumas or wounds in this area, we may feel fearful, ashamed, doubtful, or lost.

However, when we explore and heal these wounds, we can release these negative emotions and feel more grounded and connected. Our roots are like the foundation of a house - if they are strong, the rest of the structure can thrive. If they are weak or damaged, the rest of the structure may suffer.

Our roots are also interconnected with the roots of others, just as trees in a forest weave their roots together. When we connect deeply with our own roots, we can also connect more authentically with others, building stronger relationships and a greater sense of community. Taking time to explore our root space and heal any wounds or traumas is an important aspect of self-care and personal growth. It can help us to feel more centered, confident, and connected to ourselves and the world around us. You might like to explore the following podcasts:
