The development of humanity is closely linked to the energy of the Earth. In the past, people would walk barefoot and sleep in contact with the Earth. However, nowadays, we spend most of our time indoors and wear rubber-soled shoes when we venture outside. Unfortunately, this prevents our feet from absorbing the Earth's subtle energy, causing us to miss its benefits.
The Earth is a powerful source of energy and healing, constantly replenished by solar radiation, lightning, and heat from its core. This energy keeps life in balance, including ourselves. Unfortunately, we live like cut flowers, detached from the nourishing Earth's energy. Grounding, also known as earthing, reconnects to the Earth's healing power.
How do you connect with the energy of Earth? Here are some tips for Grounding:
- Walk barefoot on conductive surfaces like grass, sand, dirt, or concrete.
- Avoid walking on wood, asphalt, and vinyl.
- If going barefoot is impossible, you can use substitutes such as mats and bands connected to a grounded outlet.
Grounding can help with chronic inflammation by transferring negatively-charged electrons from the Earth into the body. This counters positively charged free radicals that cause inflammation, leading to chronic diseases like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, Alzheimer's, and cancer. Grounding is a simple, free way to access the Earth's natural antioxidant energy. Reconnect with the Earth's energy to benefit your health.
