I'd be interested in your thoughts on earthing (grounding) for someone who doesn't get in contact with the earth.
After my frequent migraines, and after any other strong nervous stimulation, I suffer the aftereffect of a tingling pain in my chest, and recently my abdomen too, very much like the sensation of an electric shock. It has for many years responded to Homoeopathy, but recently the Homoeopathic medicines don't seem to be working, and it's also getting worse and persisting for days, aggravated by any stress or noise etc. I'm studying Reiki, and although I can feel the soothing Reiki effect it doesn't really reduce the pain significantly, and certainly makes no permanent difference.
Rainbow Obsidian, Rhodochrosite, Optical Calcite and to some extent Schorl all ease it somewhat, so I lay all the pieces of those stones that I have out on my chest (Optical Calcite and Rhodochrosite are the best), but mainly they ease the pain when I'm moving them, and there's a large area of pain and only a few small stones
I spend hours meditating, trying to send what I presume to be the excess energy from my chest and abdomen down to earth, visualising it going down my spine and out and into the earth, with no effect whatsoever.
During my electronics training in my teens I was taught about the importance and actuality of earthing, returning the flow of electricity to true earth (or 'grounding', as it was called in American books and schematics, though I prefer the term 'earthing' as, apart from growing up with it, I like the implicit presence of 'Mother Earth'/bountiful Earth etc in 'earthing', as opposed to 'the cold, hard ground/knocked to the ground' and many other negative associations within the word 'grounding').
Anyhoo, I've been working on my own earthing with Rebecca's help for a little while now, visualising a flood of energy or a stream of white light and, latterly, a tree trunk with its roots reaching deeper and deeper into the ground, and also latterly trying with difficulty to visualise the Earth Star chakra, as apparently this is blocked (I have great difficulty 'feeling' a chakra outside myself the way I can easily feel the main seven bodily chakras).
I've been doing this for weeks now, pretty steadily as I'm bedridden, but I don't seem to be making progress. I was wondering if the physical disconnection between me and the earth, by virtue of being in bed and off my feet might be part of the obstacle.
As Orgonite devices and other bio-energetic things, both active and passive (i.e. electricity-driven and non-powered) can be and sometimes are physically earthed, which improves their ability to cleanse and regenerate their energies and improves their function (especially the passive ones, afaik), that this might work for me too.
I could connect the unused handgrips from my old Hulda Clark zapper to some copper wire and earth it either to the screw on the back of my stereo amp which earths the turntable to dampen hum, or straight into the earth socket of a powerpoint, which would connect me to the copper-sheathed shaft which should have been knocked a metre deep into the earth here, and lay them on the bed to rest my bare feet on.
What say you?
p.s. The waterbed isn't plugged in; no need in this warm climate. I have a great many filters on my electronic devices to protect me from EMR.
