Grounding/Earthing.

Can you feel it?

You know how electrical appliances have to be earthed to be safe?

Well, it turns out humans have to be ‘earthed’ too. And before you start snorting and going ‘ya, right’ and rolling your eyes, please take an hour out of your life and watch ‘The Earthing Movie’ by Rebecca and Josh Tickell https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=44ddtR0XDVU

I have never been one for mumbo jumbo and I’m even sceptical about homeopathy. Not that I don’t think natural healing is a lot better than chemicals, it’s just that I’ve never really seen anything work really well. I’ve tried a few natural remedies myself over time, but also, no joy.

But strangely, this ‘earthing’ or ‘grounding’ thing has captured my attention. In a very small nutshell, when your body touches the earth (hands, feet, or your whole body), you are ‘charged’, and because of this, amazing things happen in your body, like the clearing up of inflammation.

I am definitely going to try it, because a lot of what is said in this doccie makes so much sense to me. As I’m writing this, I am sitting barefoot. I’ve just come in from the garden where I turned on the sprinkler and took a walk checking out some of my plants – barefoot. And it feels so good! I cannot remember when was the last time I did this.

I was raised wearing shoes and socks. I was hardly ever allowed to walk and play barefoot. My mom liked me to look good all the time. (Strange, but true…) So, over the years, I’ve never really enjoyed going without shoes. I did do it sometimes, of course, but it was never a joy. I also don’t like dirty feet! (I know, what can I say…) I am definitely looking at that in a different light now.

I felt the wet grass under my feet today. No, I mean I really felt the grass – the texture of the grass, the wetness of it, and it was actually pleasant! I am all for new experiences, so I am trying this to see what differences it can maybe make in my life and health.

I would love to hear your opinions on this, please. Have you heard of this before? Have you tried it? Will you try it?

I mean come on people, it is FREE! It won’t take anything away from you, but it just might add something positive. So be brave, open your minds, and give it a try! If I can at my age (I’m ancient), surely you can too! πŸ˜‰

Until next time, feel the earth move under your feet… πŸ˜€

About zelmare

Hallo to you from the southern most part of the African continent - South Africa!! To put my life in a nutshell : I raised 3 absolutely fabulous kids (I'm sure you will hear a lot about them, since I am a very proud mama), I became a doting grandmother two years ago and recently bought a house in the Western Cape, and in doing so, realized a dream I've had for many, many years. I love traveling, which I don't do often enough. I love living a simple life - cooking, gardening, knitting and of course, blogging. There is still a lot I want to do and see in my lifetime, but time will tell how much of that I can actually accomplish. I am looking forward to meeting a lot of lovely new friends and interesting people here on WordPress! :)

  2. I would be barefoot all the time if I could 🦢, but we’re now heading towards winter here in Canada, and my poor feet are trapped in socks and shoes once again :(. I love the feeling of being barefoot outside!!

    • I would not enjoy going barefoot in your temperatures! I think it will have an extreme negative result if one should try…πŸ˜– Thanks for taking the time to reply. 🌺
