Walking barefoot was and still is one of the most primal instincts for mankind. By walking barefoot we encounter different advantages that we do not get either at all or almost as much by walking with shoes. One of the more evident advantages of walking barefoot is that we have an association with the earth and its attractive field. Our body is conductive to the earth and the earth is conductive to our body. The earth is loaded with negative particles and we surge our body with negative particles by walking barefoot, this is otherwise called “earthing” or establishing.
We need negative ions,exspecially in today’s reality. Positive particles are more abutant in urban communities and anywhere close electronics and electro-attractive frequencies. Think your mobile phone, portable PC, tablet, TV, wireless towers, microwave and so on. Essentially anything with a force source that radiates a sign, bluetooth, wifi, even hardware that do not emanate a sign still transmit positive particles. Since we live in a world of positive particles and separate ourselves from the world’s normal negative particle field we are flooding our body with pro-inflammatory positive particles brought about by the electronics and gadgets around us.
Earthing is the first and very powerful advantage of walking barefoot, but there are numerous different advantages of this also.Such as:
1. Improving Sleep Quality
Our predecessors slept on the earth itself or close to the earth. By being grounded (otherwise known as earthing) it relieves tension and uproots positive ions to make way for negative ions. Negative ions are relaxing and help you to improve sleep quality. Ever go swimming in the lake or ocean and slept great that night? Or went swimming in the lake or ocean and walked barefoot on the sand that day? You were earthing in the water and on the sand and you slept better because of the negative ions flowing through your body. I also personally believe that walking barefoot helps to balance your circadian rhythm to give you better awake/asleep conscious awareness. The best rested people on the planet wake up with the sun and go to bed when the sun sets. I think walking barefoot is a subconscious reminder of that ‘natural’ time to wake and sleep.
2. Balance Electrons and Influence The Brain
Our bodies are around 70% water and the more grounded we are in nature the more conductive and alive that water is in our entire body. Walking barefoot helps to create an ionic balance within our cells and tissue. Exercises with the most age and wisdom such as martial arts, yoga and tai chi are all done barefoot, do you wonder why? This helps us wire our brain to be on our feet at all times. When we walk with shoes we don’t “think on our feet” as much because we are somewhat disconnected from our feet. Walking barefoot helps to balance emotional and mental stability and well-being.
