Earthing – Our skin touching the skin of the earth
Earthing”- being in touch with the electromagnetic field of the earth directly– decreases cellular inflammation. And just feels GREAT. Like being at the beach. Throughout time, we humans have strolled, sat, stood, DANCED, and slept on the ground—the skin of our bodies touching the skin of the Earth—oblivious to the fact that such physical contact transfers natural electrical energy to the body.
Modern lifestyle has disconnected us from the Earth’s energy, making us more vulnerable to stress and illness.Earthing is the landmark discovery that this energy upholds the electrical stability of our bodies and serves as a foundation for vitality and health.In an age of rampant chronic disease, reconnecting with the Earth’s energy beneath our very feet provides a way back to better health.
Spending some time lying down on the grass in your garden or a park can be a wonderful preventive health measure. Walk and go barefoot more often. It is sensual, fun and makes you feel playful and alive.
We are bioelectrical beings living on an electrical planet. Let’s Reconnect to the Earth.
Do you love Form or Freedom?
When I was younger I rebelled against most rules and longed for more freedom.
Freedom remains one of my highest values.
Over the past years I have been learning about the power of consciously creating structures in my life.
These conscious structures and routines (for example what time I wake up or sleep, what and when I eat etc.) help support my highest desired outcome. They ultimately create more freedom and benefits for me in the long run.
I no longer blindly go against existing or recommended structures, and instead ask myself whether any “guideline” or “rule” would serve my highest interest.
Let’s ask ourselves where we might benefit from creating “new structures” in our life, and which structures might no longer serve us.
I first was drawn to Nia and holistic movement because I felt I could move more freely.
Over time I realised that the choreography (the form/structure of Nia) is specifically designed to help us become more adaptable and resilient.
Nia movement deliberately takes us out of our “habitual movement patterns” and “gently nudges” us to move in “weird or unfamiliar ways” which stimulate “new ways of thinking and feeling”.
We don’t get that if we only dance freely or only to choreography we love!
