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.


Who am I, and why I write. I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I am the one, holding on to the silver lining when the skies are gray. I’m a believer that nothing is coincidence, but that everything has purpose. I’ve made my mistakes, don’t we all, but I see them as growing pains and they are a part of who I am today. I have lost myself in order to find myself, and I still do from time to time, but in a good way. I’m a big child who laughs until my belly hurts when life wants to be serious. Career wise: I’ve been there, done that, and I took “The jump” off the hamster wheel in an effort to change my future. I didn’t land all that soft, but I can say that I’m still proud to have found the courage to do it. Coming full circle, I had it all, and yet I was lonely and had nothing. Today I choose to be a collector of moments and I chase memories, instead of the material stuff. Less is more, and the motto is quality over quantity. You’d be amazed at how freeing it can be. I see myself as a free spirit that believes in an unconventional lifestyle. Somehow I go against the grain most of the times, not to rebel, but because it feels right to stay true to my unique and authentic self. It takes courage, and you often stand alone, but if you dare, you soon realize that it is the only way if you don’t want to lose who you are. Just like most, my past wasn’t easy and I come from a life that didn’t always give me the opportunity to be heard. Few related and even fewer cared to take the time. But that’s the past and it’s history, the future hasn’t happened and the “NOW” is truly all we ever have. In the end we all have a story to tell, and we all seek to be understood. We all yearn to be heard and accepted and still life is hard and our path is full of stumbling blocks. If we can see the lessons in adversity we may realize that the toughest moments are often our greatest teachers. There is a reason for the saying that the stars can’t shine without darkness, and it might be darkness that will show you the light.
It took a series of (un)fortunate events, to learn to glow through the pain, to learn how to dance in the rain. I believe in Magic and wonder, and the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. As an empath this old soul often feels a little too much, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Today, I am here to tell my story because I believe that it can help others. It is my hope to bring inspiration and strengths to you, while showing you that it can be done. I know you are out there, and I know you are suffering in silence. I am here to tell you that you are not alone, and your voice is being heard loud and clear. Hang on and be strong, transformation is yours. 
In light and love....Rhapsody Bohème 💙🦋

  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.
