Modern lifestyle has increasingly separated humans from contact with earth's electrical field and free electrons. For example, since the 1960s, we have increasingly worn shoes with insulating rubber or plastic or composite soles, instead of the traditional leather soles fashioned from animal hides. Some have mentioned that the use of insulating materials in post-World War II shoes has separated us from the Earth's energy field. Obviously, we no longer sleep and walk directly on the ground as we did in the past. Moreover, our houses have floors made of wood or acrylic that are also insulating. Even carpets are made from synthetic materials that are nonconductive, and that can cause build-up of harmful static electrical charges on our bodies. During recent decades, stress related chronic illness, immune disorders, and inflammatory diseases have increased dramatically, and some researchers have suggested that environmental factors are the likely cause. However, the possibility of modern disconnection with the earth's surface as a cause of chronic disease has not been considered by modern biomedicine.
An estimated 1000 to 2000 thunderstorms are continually active around the globe, emitting thousands of lightening strikes per minute. This continuous flow of electrons from the sun to the ionosphere and to the earth via lightning strikes keeps the surface of the earth electrically charged. Electrostatics teaches that when two conductive objects with different electrical potential touch each other, there is a virtually instantaneous transfer of charge so that the two objects equilibrate to the same electrical potential. The human body is a conductor of electricity and so is the earth. "Grounded" or "earthed" means that our bodies are connected to the surface of the earth and its abundant supply of electrons. This is a natural condition in which earth's electrons spread over and into our bodies, stabilizing our internal electrical environment.
People who work barefoot in the garden or walk barefoot along the beach often experience a special sense of wellbeing, just from being in direct physical contact with the earth. Some teachers of ancient practices such as Yoga and Qigong recommend that all exercises be done while barefoot on the earth. The significance of barefoot contact with the earth has been known since ancient times. Native American elders have discussed this in their traditional story telling:
OUR BODY IS ELECTRICAL
Studies showed that when the body is grounded, its electrical potential becomes equalized with the Earth's electrical potential through a transfer of electrons from the earth to the body. For many, the only contact they have with electrons from the earth is when they take a shower, assuming that the water they are using comes to them through metal pipes buried in the earth. An electron-depleted person may look and feel perfectly normal, just like everyone else. The difference between a grounded and ungrounded person probably does not show up until the person has an injury or is recovering from a disease, or until they begin to age.
- Endocrine and nervous system regulations
- Reduces/eliminate chronic inflammation
- Increase melatonin
- Improve blood flow
- Injuries/trauma faster recovery
- Protect the body from EMF
INCREASING YOUR CONNECTION WITH MOTHER EARTH
- Walk barefoot frequently
- Meditate outside sitting on the ground
- Buy leather soles shoes
- Feeling anxious
- After a flight
The collective anxiety/stress has reached an unprecedented high. We live in a world where we are disconnecting ourselves more and more from the natural rhythms of nature adding an increase in EMF, technologies and blue light exposure. It is imperative for us to balance our cortisol level with natural techniques such as Earthing. We invite you to include earthing techniques in your daily life.
At Ekommunity, you can allow yourself to fully embrace these benefits of mother nature. Allow yourself to rebalance, gain clarity and calm your nervous system. We are blessed to have an abundance of beautiful walks in nature, the perfect spot to regenerate & light up your soul. We invite you to enjoy all in full presence. Disconnect your phone, leave your shoes in your room, wander through the trees, meander down the rivers, swim in the waterfall, get your toes in the mud - get messy! We are certain you will leave us with a noticeable sense of calm & lightness in body and mind.
