YES according to some and depending on how technical you want to get.
Earthing is used commonly in the European and commonwealth countries, where as Grounding is a North American standard.
If you are talking electricity flowing through wires there is a huge difference between the two.
Earthing = to minimize the risk of an electrical shock if touching metal parts when a fault is present, discharging the electrical current into the Earth. Ground is really another word for Earth which is a common return path for electric current and circuits maybe connected to ground (Earth) for several reasons.
If you are talking about collecting, absorbing Mother Earth’s energy the difference is very suttle.
Grounding is being connected to Mother Earth it is the end result.
Earthing is the process of absorbing Mother Earth’s free flowing electrons from the surface with the soles of one’s bare feet creating the connection and Grounding.
The energy is not only in the ground it is also within the vegetation, so hugging a tree also creates reciprocity with Mother Earth. A give and take of energies.
Have you EVER hugged a tree?
Some Indian beliefs are that trees hold the souls of EVERY single living thing that passes by during it’s lifetime. Imagine the energy Trees are just waiting to give You!
Grounding is . . .
Truly a means of Free reflexology
Creates a positive healing, energy restoring connection
Absorbing the electrical energy creating a give and take with Earth
Greatly reducing the risk of disease
when you BREATHE and add some movement with your grounding, you increase the benefits exponentially.

Please watch the video on grounding/earthing . It is so chocked full of life changing information I decided to insert the link in both places!
