Time to Go Barefoot~ it’s good for your Health
Hooray, it’s June!! I love this month….ok, in truth I love something about each month. But June is extra special (for me) because it has the Summer Solstice in it. Celebration time!! And June means there is more light around, warmer days and evenings and we can run outside in our bare feet!
It is the perfect time to do Earthing or grounding. What is Earthing?
It’s simply reconnecting with Earth’s healing energy. Human beings evolved in connection with the Earth’s energy. We walked barefoot and we slept in contact with the Earth never realizing that its surface contained limitless, natural, healing energy.
Walking around barefoot is not our main mode of travel any longer. We live indoors much of the time and when we do walk or run outside we wear rubber soled shoes which prevent our feet from being able to absorb the Earth’s subtle energy. Rubber is not conductive, but our bodies are!
Don’t you just feel better when you are outside in nature for long periods of time. Why do you think so many people find gardening so meditative. Most babies will prefer to walk barefoot on the grass….they KNOW!! 😉
Why should you ground?
Your immune system functions optimally when your body has an adequate supply of electrons, which are easily and naturally obtained by barefoot contact with the Earth. In recent years, inflammation has come to the forefront of medical attention and has been recognized as the leading trigger of chronic pain and most major health disorders, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, arthritis, Alzheimer’s, and cancer. “All roads to chronic disease lead through inflammation,” researchers are increasingly saying. Bodies are on fire.
Earthing appears to extinguish the flames through the transfer of negatively-charged electrons from the surface of the Earth into the body where they neutralize positively-charged destructive free radicals involved in chronic inflammation. The Earth’s energy makes the ground beneath our feet an extremely effective and abundant antioxidant! And it’s free. No pills, no prescriptions. All you have to do is reconnect. ~www.grounded.com/what is earthing
We walk around like cut flowers ~disconnected from the Earth’s healing energy. But it doesn’t have to be that way!
It’s so simple…….go outside, kick those shoes off and stand on the grass (especially after it rains), lay on the sand at the beach and soak up some healing energy. 🙂
