Charge inside the Earth. Where does it go?

  1. Current passes through us if we hold a conductor barefoot and it goes inside the earth. What happens next? What happens with that charge as it enters the ground? Does it combine with the cations present in the soil?

    Pretty much - details depend on the ground.
    Also see "telluric current".
