Our connection to nature, the planet and the universe is vital, however, with rapid advances in technology and our modern fast-paced lifestyles, many of us have become separated from our basic bond with mother Earth. When was the last time you walked barefoot on the Earth?
We all know that the sun gives us warmth, light and vitamin D and the Earth provides us with fresh air, water, food, and a surface to live on. However, it has recently been discovered that when our bare feet make contact with the Earth’s surface our body’s uptake a natural and subtle energy in the form of electrons that have a negative charge – we call this vitamin G. This could be the difference between feeling good and not so good, of having little or a lot of energy, sleeping well or not so well, looking vibrant or looking tired and old.
Throughout history humans walked barefoot, slept on the ground, cultivated their land with bare hands and spent a lot of their time naturally grounded. However, we have become increasingly disconnected from nature by our modern lifestyle. Conductive leather-soled shoes of our ancestors have been replaced with insulated rubber and plastics. We sleep in beds and homes off the ground. Our homes and offices surround us with electronic devices, wireless connections, microwaves and cell towers, which assail us continuously with a positive charge.
