It’s time to get back to nature by taking off your shoes and walking on the earth: grass, sand, dirt, on the beach, etc. Barefoot walking is making a come back and for good reasons. It’s called Earthing! It means living in contact with the Earth’s natural surface charge. You are grounded when you are Earthing. By barefoot walking or by just placing your bare-feet on the ground while sitting, you will receive negative electrons from the Earth and your body will feel more relaxed. Inflammation and sore muscles will decrease and your state of mind will be more joyful. There is something magical about barefoot walking on Mother Earth.
Earthing is both a timeless practice and a modern discovery. When you are grounded to the Earth, you receive healing powers from Mother Earth. Our Mother is here to help us heal.
As a kid, I remember going barefoot in the back yard and when I was at the beach. It felt good, but I did not know of the benefits and neither did anyone else. I discovered the re-born aspects of Earthing from a book, called, “Earthing: The most important health discovery ever!” The authors are Clinton Ober, Stephen Sinatra, MD and Martin Zucker. Clinton and thousands of other people, many who are documented in the book, have seen their health rebound from Earthing. It makes sense as humans for millions of years were connected to the Earth by being barefoot or by wearing shoes that connected to the Earth. Shoes of the past were made from natural plant fibers or animal hides and these shoes had the Earthing connection. Since the invention of plastic shoes, and high-heeled shoes, narrow toe box shoes, etc., the health of humans has declined with aching joints, bad posture, back pain, foot pain, muscle soreness and overall inflammation. Inflammation is a driving component in illness and disease.
When you start to do some Earthing, take your time and just stand on the Earth’s natural surfaces. Later on, you can walk and before long, you might even go barefoot hiking. The more you do it, the better you will feel from being grounded to the Earth. Even when the weather gets cooler and eventually, cold, you can still do some Earthing. I know as I Earth in all types of weather. Your body will adapt to the ever-changing weather of Mother Earth. I have found when it’s chilly or cold, just stand in place and your bare feet will slowly warm up the ground. Strive to Earth for about 20 minutes or longer if you can. I have felt the best benefits when I Earth for at least 20 minutes, but any amount of Earthing has healing benefits.
Many people who Earth have experienced many awesome healing benefits. Here is a list of some of the health improvements that people have reported: Improved Posture, reduction and sometimes, elimination of back pain and foot pain, better sleep, increase in mental focus and power, healthier immune system, reduction in arthritis, reduction in blood pressure, reduction is stress levels, including a reduction in cortisol, increase in libido, increase in energy, healthier skin, healthier metabolism, and much more.
What are negative electrons and why does the Earth contain them? According to science, atoms are made of extremely tiny particles called protons, neutrons, and electrons. Protons and neutrons are in the center of the atom, making up the nucleus. Electrons surround the nucleus. Protons have a positive charge. Electrons have a negative charge. The natural frequencies of the Earth are made up of waves of energy and the motions of subatomic particles called free electrons cause these waves. Electrons have a negative charge. These electrons give the Earth’s surface a natural, negative charge. There is a constant flow of electrons to the Earth’s surface from rain and lightning strikes. By grounding, we receive and absorb these negative electrons into our bodies. These free negative electrons reduce free radicals in our bodies and reduce chronic inflammation and bring a state of homeostasis to our bodies. Our body’s natural electric state is restored.
