    Whenever I feel anxious (which is most of the time) it’s because I forgot that I am more than this one body, this one place in time, this list of things I have to do today.

What To Know Before Bringing Grounded Touch Indoors To Your Loved Ones

  I was recently asked:   “If a sick person is lacking the earth’s electrons, can you donate your electrons to them by touching them?”   The short answer to this is: yes.   When you were a kid, did you ever walk around in your socks, rubbing them on a carpet repeatedly so you could sneak up to your sibling and shock them? (Or was that just me, LOL? My poor older brother.)
