Merry Meet! Welcome to the Silver Chalice Wiccan 'Zine!
This edition of the Silver Chalice has been called on account of Summer!
Well, not quite. There's rich stuff in this short 'Zine, info that I feel certain is going to be of great help to you.
of spending your time indoors on your computer, why not head to the nearest water source and dip your feet in? It's more than just fun... it's great for you mentally, physically, emotionally, as well as spiritually!
Here's the scoop...
I've been learning a lot about Earthing the benefits of making the physical, electromagnetic connection between your bare feet and the moist Earth (intensified by water, especially salt water).
Symbolically and metaphorically, this is how Wiccan philosophy sees the Goddess in general, and the Earth in particular.
She is the negative pole. The word
"negative" has unfortunate connotations these days, but essentially it's simply a receptive form of Energy. And at the same time, it forms the fabric of physical existence (at least, as we experience it here on Earth) the material world that has been created.
I call it Earthing rather than Grounding, to differentiate it from the Wiccan visualisation/meditation practice of that name.
What Is Earthing?
Essentially, Earthing is literally and physically grounding your body, just as electricity is grounded. The Earth's surface is kept in a state of negative1 electrical potential through lightning, solar wind, and the ionosphere. That means, it gives off electrons.
When we put our bare skin in contact with the Earth (or a conductive surface that's in contact), we're encouraging the free electrons in the Earth to enter our bodies, removing free
radicals and charging up with these free electrons.
In other words, Earthing literally increases energy particles within our bodies.
And it returns us to a healthy, alkaline state, which, as you probably know, protects you against myriad illnesses, including cancer. The negative charge of the electrons we receive from the Earth bonds to the positively charged, "acidic" ions in our bodies, which we know as free radicals.

amazing that there's such a transformative health program we can do... effortlessly and free!
It's not modern, either (although the science is) healers in prior centuries claimed that we absorb Earth energy through our feet easily, which assists healing. Now, at last, science is catching up with the Power of the Earth... proving what we can sense or intuit is true.
I'm intending an article on this maybe even a whole lesson for the Wicca School but meanwhile, let me share with you just a few benefits of Earthing...
Benefits of Earthing
Reduces inflammation (now being considered in medical research as "electron deficiency," and a leading cause of disease)
Protects against effects of electromagnetic fields (EMFs, such as cell phones, computers, power cables...)
Lowers blood pressure
Relieves pain in joints and muscles
Reduces stress and anxiety
Increases feelings of well-being and relaxation
Regulates hormones (e.g., for more menstrual ease)
And that's just for starters! Doesn't even cover the benefits magickally and
Digging in the garden, touching a tree, walking barefoot... these are all ways that we've been designed by Nature to rebalance our bodies.
The feet in particular have so many receptors that they are the most effective conduit for electrons from the Earth.
If you have an ill-health condition, why not give it a try? 20 minutes a day with your bare feet on a moist piece of ground can be a very helpful practice to begin shifting your body's natural state towards health.
And if you're in good health, consider it an effective insurance policy!
As part of my healing plan, this is something I do every day... with my feet (at least) in the ocean whenever possible.
So that's what I'll be doing... why not join me?
More To See In This Issue
Just to leave you with something entertaining that doesn't take long to read, though, I'll share something in the Energy Fields that you might be
experiencing, and what to do about it...
And lastly, I'd like to leave you with something else I've been busily creating... graphics based on interesting and informative tidbits, mostly plucked from the A Year & A Day: 53 Weeks to Becoming a Wiccan course.
These days, I think they call them memes... Enjoy!
And please be sure to join me for the next issue which will be especially juicy! The Bonus Article, for example, will be Emotions & the Spiritual Red Herring.
Meanwhile, Happy Lammas!! I wish you the best of the season!
With Bright Blessings,
Want Your Life to Take a New Direction?
Seems like everyone I've talked to in the last few months is coming to a place in their lives where they're ready to move forward in some way.
Some part of their lives where they've felt stuck or been held back is ready to shift. They feel so DONE with the past, and eager to kick off in a new direction.
It seems that something in the Energy Field of the world has shifted... things that we wanted to do, but couldn't, have now become possible!
And not a moment too soon!, is the general consensus.
Sometimes, though, such a shift can get stuck.
. . . Continue to the article to find out this simple, effective trick...
New Memes for Wicca & Spirituality
That's not all of them, of course ... and there are always more being created.
This is a very different style of 'Zine, this month. Usually the Silver Chalice Wiccan 'Zine has a lot of regular columns and stuff in it, and this month it's very simple... streamlined, even.
I was surprised to find that I like it a lot!
So I was wondering what you thought of it... Is this a format you'd prefer, or do you like all the columns and such?
Please drop me a line by hitting "Reply" to this email, and let me know! If people vote for this style, I'd be happy to make the change.
If you have any comments, opinions, or content ideas we'd love to hear from you. Please write!
