We descend from beings that had to walk barefoot. In those times, there was nothing that could protect their feet. Even today, people living in the country have a habit of walking barefoot across their yards, which is good because our bodies need that sense of touch, one of the most important senses.When we put on shoes we don’t give a chance to our body to get in touch with Mother Nature.
Why is walking barefoot important? – Well, our extremities have points that are connected to vital organs in our body, so walking without our shoes helps stimulate these points and transmit positive energy to our organs.
The “Chi” can be found in Eastern philosophies and medicine. So, it’s safe to say that the concept of energy flow is nothing new to mankind. Though the Chinese call it “Chi”, Indians call it “Prana”. Stimulating certain points on our body can affect our health in a positive way by making the energy flow. The way the energy flows through the meridian system, is similar to blood flowing through the bloodstream. And when the energy flows, your body recharges, and if some point in the meridian is blocked, the organ connected to it is weakened because it doesn’t receive energy. You’ll develop a disease in connection to that organ, if this is happening on a regular basis.
Walking barefoot sends signals to the organs through these points which revive the energy flow through the meridian system. “Grounding”, as it’s called, means to connect with the natural bioelectrical field of the planet.
Finding time to walk barefoot is essential. However, if you’re unable to do it, you can always stimulate the energy flow with a foot massage. Massage your feet and hands every morning by applying strong pressure (but not too strong). Your best guide where to do the massaging can be the points where you experience pain. These pain points need massaging the most.
Foot massages are a common practice among the Chinese. There’s a custom which says that children massage their father’s feet when the father arrives home after a long day of work. This is considered a sign of respect, but they are also aware that massaging your feet can stimulate the energy flow.
Acupressure massages help with solving disruptions in the work of hormones, heart failure, frequent infections, and lack of energy, indigestion, tension and even sinuses. It helps the affected organs recover in the healthiest way possible.
Start off by walking every day for at least five minutes and increase the time gradually. At some point, you’ll wake up in the morning with emotions that you haven’t experienced before, which is perfectly natural because you are reconnecting with Mother Nature and rekindling the natural intelligence of your body.
