The science of grounding

I came across this the other day and feel it could be a missing link for treating my RA. I have nothing to lose but I will try what is covered in video and it speaks more to me than the call of taking hard core drugs as a form of treatment. It would explain the feelings I get when I’m in nature, when I sit on the ground and feel peace flooding my body. When the pain and the stress leaves drains from my soul and I literally recharge. For the longest I have referenced going to nature is like recharging my batteries. I never realized how true this statement really is. I believe this is a step in the right direction when it comes to my own health and who knows what’s next.


We are the co-creators of our life and the time is now. More than ever are we needed to support Mother Earth and each other. Together we discover and explore our unique gifts in times of strengths, in times we lean on each other, and in times when we learn from each other. This blog started as an outlet and what I ultimately called my “Warriors Journey.” It was a way to document the ups and downs of my life, sharing my hardships as well as my successes. It showcased the struggles, but more important the ways of how to overcome them. Although we are warriors each and every day, I realized that having to be a warrior, comes from a place of pain. I decided to rename this blog, and “Phoenix Rising” now stands for the story of overcoming such a painful place. My motivation for this blog hasn’t changed and I hope to share inspiration and hope, to create a sense of belonging, a space of being heard, and connecting with like minded beings who instill a sense of oneness. We are never alone, and we are unstoppable in the pursuit of what sets our soul on fire. Who I am in a nutshell... 
I am an energy healer and Reiki Master. I am surviving a chronic disease that I’ve sent into remission three times since my initial bout, 15 years ago. I continuously challenge the status quo and by doing so I change my stars. I am a believer that anything is possible. I am a hopeless romantic and I believe that true love exists on various levels. I am an optimist that will always see the glass as half full. I am a dreamer, believing in endless possibilities. Not even the sky is the limit. I have jumped off of the hamster wheel, and I am writing a new chapter. I am chasing my Nirvana to support my most authentic self. This is my story, I am that Phoenix and I am rising from the ashes. Namaste 🙏🏼💙🦋

  1. Oh. My. Goddess! This is amazing! Thank you so much for bringing this to my attention. I’m going to tape my bed up for starters. Then I’m going to show that video to just about anybody I can. Right now, I’m going out into the garden with my shoes off. How about a reblog? This is perfect time of year to remind people about the importance of taking your shoes off, after all! Thank you, thank you, thank you, Rhapsody. x

    1. I knew you would enjoy the information and a reblog is actually a great idea. I will do so and schedule it over the next couple of days. I think it’s great you found the info helpful and that it spoke to you. Isn’t it amazing? I can always feel it when I’m out and when peace is starting to flood through my veins. Amazingly enough the RA pain subsides as well. Surprise….

  2. I have shown it to Andy and Myca, Myca did some weeks in India with no shoes and she is a big fan, she’s going to put it on her site too. Andy brought some wire home from work today, I just have to get out and get some metallic duct tape and we will be wired to the earth in bed – I can’t wait! I’ve been standing on the lawn today and my ankle pain completely went! xxx

  3. Reblogged this on Rhapsody Bohème and commented:

    I think it’s perfect timing to remember and share this post. With chronic illnesses soaring to new heights, it is up to us to arm ourselves with as much knowledge as possible. Only then can we consider all the choices and what is right for us. We have nothing to lose but everything to gain. I hope you enjoy this post and video once more, and always remember to stay grounded.


  4. From one empath to another…Thank you so very much for guiding me to your post on grounding. I believe you may very well have just given me my life back. We live in the country now and that has helped my body some but the concept of grounding may be exactly what I needed to heal more. I think I always knew that I felt better when I was experiencing the Earth but now…It will be so much more purposeful 🙂 Thanks for ‘sensing’ that I might benefit from your post.
