The Importance of Grounding / Earthing

I have known for a long time that Grounding and Earthing is very good for you, make contact with the Earth with bare feet. I knew it was good for your Energies, to Release the Energies you no longer need or are not good for you and to Recharge your Self with the Positive Energies of the Earth.

When I’m home I mainly walk bare foot and on a nice day I will sit outside in my front yard with bare feet in the grass to Ground my Self. But that only doesn’t seem enough to properly become Grounded and Earthed.

Grounding / Earthing

When I was living in New Zealand for a few years, on the South Island, there were a lot of people who walked bare feet on the streets. Coming from the Netherlands and never seen people do that, unless they were homeless, was a strange thing for me to see, and to do. But later on the understanding came that it was for Grounding and Earthing.

Now living in the UK I do realise that nobody really does that here either, and I’m sure people would look weird at you for walking bare foot on the streets. But actually, it should be more accepted and be normalised to do it, for our own Health benefits really.

Back in the old, old days people did not do anything else than walking bare foot, but since we started to wear shoes with artificial soles we basically became more disconnected and less grounded.

I did not know, or realised there is so much more to Grounding and Earthing. I did not know that Grounding and Earthing actually helps to release Inflammation within the Physical body. Inflammation is a cause of a lot of dis-eases and what makes our bodies ill. By reducing Inflammation and releasing it completely from our bodies, we Heal from so much illnesses.

Beside reducing and releasing Inflammation, Grounding and Earthing is also beneficial for Chronic Pain, Insomnia, Increasing Energy, Normalising Biological Rhythms, Normalising Blood Flow and Blood Pressure, Relieving Muscle Tension and Headache, Improving Menstrual and Female Hormone Symptoms, Lowering Stress, Decreasing Anxiety and Protecting the body from the effects of EMF’s ( electromotive force like voltage ).

This should be reason enough for all of us to walk more on bare foot or even at least sit outside for a while, every single day, to Ground and Earth your Self. To release all you have to release and to recharge with the energies we need to keep our bodies healthy.

Grounding and Earthing is a very important part of Self Healing, and I feel it should be taken more serious than just something “hippie” people do. As there is a true Science behind it and it’s proven Science as well.

So all I can say for my Self, and hopefully motivate You to do, is taking off our shoes more, put your bare feet on the Earth and let the Healing process begin!

Namaste,

Reiki for Horses – Equine Reiki

The Benefits of Reiki for Horses

Horse lovers readily agree that what’s good for a horse is usually also good for the owner. This is definitely true when considering the benefits of Reiki for horses. This gentle and non-intrusive therapy traces its modern origins to human patients in Japan. Today it’s growing in popularity as a healing tool that can benefit horses physically, emotionally and mentally.

The Nature of Reiki Healing

Reiki is a holistic system of energy healing. Practitioners connect with healing energy in the universe and channel it through their hands. Once limited to primarily healing people, it now also benefits companion animals around the globe. A growing number of animal rescues are taking advantage of its healing benefits.

This healing system is easy to learn. The ability to utilize it is transferred to students during a class that usually lasts several hours.

How Equine Reiki Works

Energy flows through the body of a horse in good health much like an electric current. However, a number of factors can interfere with this flow. Among them are physical injuries, trauma, dietary changes, emotional problems, training issues or a combination of these problems. Any blockage of energy can result in physical, psychological or behavioral problems.

An individual providing Horse Reiki, or Equine Reiki, restores positive energy flow into the animal’s body, correcting imbalance. Horses are particularly sensitive and quickly pick up on the healing a practitioner offers through hands-on or even hands-off means. Typically, the animal will approach and quickly become a willing participant.

Reiki for Horses: A healing tool that can benefit horses physically, emotionally and mentally.

Benefits of Animal Reiki

Treating horses and pets with Reiki helps relax and calm them, making it easier for owners and trainers to handle them and resolve behavioral issues. A calmer horse means a calmer, happier owner.

Reiki is extremely useful in conjunction with traditional veterinary care. It helps horses recover faster, saving owners anxiety and cost. Veterinarians trained in this type of healing have found it useful in treating travel stress and digestive problems, as well as settling mares who are new mothers.
