Add this practice, gain energy, and change your life.
This has been a daily practice of mine since I was a kid. I never knew what it was called, I just knew I hated wearing shoes. Taking them off is the first thing we do when we get home. Right!?
The first thing I do when I get home in the evenings is walk out to my back yard barefoot and walk in circles in the soft green clover grass and add some deep breathing, imaging and saying the word “release” in your head or out loud, I am releasing my stress into the ground.
With this therapy, on those days I’m really serious, I put in my ear buds and listen to uplifting music.
This is very stress relieving and energizing, especially for those who deal with extreme physical fatigue as I do.
As sensitive as our feet are, who doesn’t like to feel cool grass and wet sand swish up between their toes.
When ever there was a rain storm I would sneak out of the house and stomp in the mud puddles and sometimes get carried away smearing it on my legs and arms as well, as many children do. They love how it makes them feel.
Earthing or Grounding, the 2 names given to this art. What I believe everyone practices knowing or not because we want to feel connected.
Rolling down those grass hills is so therapeutic, I could do it for hours. This I refer to as a ninja form of grounding, the other I described earlier would be the yoga form.
Taking a walk barefoot on the beach, dangling our feet in a lake, standing on warm stones or walking through soft grass is healing by exchanging good energy for bad. This is why it is suggested we get out more in nature.
We exchange negative ions and become energized. The same effect would happen whether you hug a tree (literally), or take a dip in the ocean.
Take off those shoes. Get Grounded. Gain Peace. Restore Energy.
