Grounded - Smartphones May Impede These Connections
March 5, 2020
Hosted by Gord Riddell
From childhood onward, we are subjected to multiple influences that seek to tell us who we are, how we are supposed to be, act, think. Slowly we disconnect from who we are trying without success to be what other people want us to be. We may begin to experience a disconnect between our body, emotions and spirit. If someone hurt us physically or sexually, the trauma disconnects us in powerful ways. We may withdraw socially, shut down our ability to feel, we become silent. The good news is we can learn to reconnect. Studies in the area of Human connections have identified a very simplistic practise that benefits us enormously, walking barefoot on the earth for a few minutes each day has big benefits on all levels. This practice - called earthing - can also be called grounding. A simple first step in reconnecting to our self and the benefits derived from being in our body and getting out of our head.
Things Worth Considering
Thursday at 5 PM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel
This is a show about connections. Connections to your self, your spirit, your feelings and your story. We know one of the most powerful healing tools we have is our connections. Explore connecting to your intuition and those aha moments. Discover how we get in our own way and how we can overcome obstacles to move on. We will discover that how we think, what we believe, and our attitude defines how we experience our life. Fascinating is the idea that we shape our reality to what we believe it should be, in our minds. Connection to our families, our aging family members and becoming caregivers, not caretakers.
Reality of our self aging, not into senior citizens but embracing the archetypal Elder, the Wise One. Living the Spiritual idea of being of service but not feeling like someone’s servant. Moving forward, with our guests, we will connect to each other embracing the mysteries of life as we explore the many roads of the human journey and those will be things worth considering.
