Touching the earth directly (aka Grounding or Earthing™) has an immediate and profound impact on the central nervous system.
It calms us, soothes us, releases tension and stress and allows peace to wash through our bodies.
I felt this profoundly as a new mother -- my daughter had long and intense issues with colic and what I did soothed her every time: held her to my bare skin and stepped outside barefoot. Holding her on my chest, our skin to skin contact instantly grounded her the moment I became grounded. Immediately her crying would stop and her face would soften and relax.
Back then, I didn't know the science behind grounding but I sure knew the power of it.
I wanted to paint a canvas to show this soothing effect of mother nature... how wired our brains are to work in concert with Mother Earth... how we can receive that calming and soothing anti-inflammatory power any time we like by simply re-connecting with the earth.
I realized how very much our own brain and spinal column looked to me like a beautiful tree, and the image for this canvas was born. Painting it was effortless and fun, as if this image was needed in this world. I hope you love it and use it as a reminder that all you need to do to unwind from your stressful day, or silence negative thoughts, or neutralize the inflammation from modern living, is to receive.
Get into receptive mode by connecting with the earth and imagine that soothing support from Mother Earth working together with your own body, naturally, to free your thoughts and your mind.
The original is painted on a 12 x 16 inch gallery wrapped canvas, and prints are Giclee printed using 200+ year archival quality inks on gorgeous velvet smooth heavyweight paper.
