Between you and the earth

Metaphysical, Serenity, Stress

When you have had a long day or are feeling stressed, consider sitting or walking on the earth or grass to reenergize your body with the soothing earth element.

by Pragya Pradhan — 

Rubber, plastic, tile, polyester, metal, compressed wood and concrete are all materials that stand between you and the nourishing earth. When was the last time you actually placed your feet on the earth and let its healing energy soothe you?

We walk in machine-made shoes on machine-made tiles, polyester carpets and laminated wood floors that float on plastic. These materials do not provide relief to the stressful energy that accumulates in the body after a day of work or interacting with people.

We may not realize it, but sometimes our bodies need “earthing,” just as a battery needs charging. This means we need to let all the unnecessary accumulated energies in our bodies seep into the earth, like water.

So, when you have had a long day or are feeling stressed, consider sitting or walking on the earth or grass to reenergize your body with the soothing earth element. Simply step into your backyard and feel the earth beneath your bare feet. Take the opportunity to thank Mother Earth for all the nourishment she provides.

Also take a green step toward using natural materials as much as possible so that the body can breathe and the earth is kept clean. Consider wearing leather shoes rather than synthetic, and choose cotton apparel over polyester.

It will not be long before you will feel energized and grateful for the soothing power of Mother Nature.
