Ask any hippie and they will surely tell you that going barefoot keeps you more in touch with the earth, but the benefits go way deeper than you might think.
The earth has what is called a Global Electron Circuit. This is a fancy way of saying she has an energetic field or an aura. It is this field that is leading scientists to conclusions that the walking, standing, or spending time barefoot on the earth reduces inflammation, helps with hormones, and helps with the circadian rhythms that govern sleep. In other words those hippies were right.
The Earth and her Global Atmospheric Electron Circuit can reduce inflammation, but only if you go barefoot.
The earth’s surface has an ever renewing supplying of free electrons, due to a global atmospheric electron circuit. When you wear shoes with insulating soles, (rubber soled shoes) you are cut off from the absorption of these electrons. But when you go barefoot your own electrical system absorbs them.
When we wear shoes constantly we are like a batteries that are cut off from our supply. Our circuits are no longer connected. The result is that we are no longer absorbing those free electrons that are mobilized in the earth’s surface. The absorption of these electrons has the effect of reducing inflammation. The inflammatory response carries a positive charge which is neutralized and decreased by the absorption of the negatively charged electrons.
The benefits of absorbing the Earth’s electrons
~Decreases inflammation and therefore helps balance the diseases caused by inflammation (acid reflux, acne, celiac disease, Chrohn’s disease, chronic pain, cancer, arthritis, and allergies to name a few)
~In today’s modern world sound sleep is a problem for a lot of people. It is thought that the earth’s diurnal electrical rhythms regulate the biological clocks for the hormones that in turn trigger activity and sleep.
~Protection from unwanted energy (like cell phone waves)
I am sure touching the Earth with bare feet affects our health in an emotional way that is not yet understood by science. Your feet need to feel the aliveness of the Earth. Someday science will tell us that there is a vitamin or hormone that regulates happiness that is increased when we play on the Earth barefoot. Or a hormone that is released that decreases level of aggression. Or some other beneficial hormonal regulatory cycle that occurs.
All of these benefits of spending time barefoot on the earth lead to greater health, sleep, and inner peace. And as the saying goes inner peace leads to outer beauty.
