Strange title, huh? I will explain to the best of my ability in this blog (I hope). Before I go on, let me offer to some lucky blogger a free e-book, but remember to check back tomorrow to see if you won. Recently I’ve had a few winners who did not personally contact me — and to claim your prize, you must contact me personally. Okay?
Grounding. Are you all aware of what grounding is? I’m not certain if grounding comes to us from Native America, but I do know that the American Indian Medicine Man practiced grounding, knowing that it could heal many things. Grounding is taking off your shoes (or wearing shoes that have leather soles) and walking on the earth. It has had healing properties. Research that I did on grounding showed that it worked to let the electrical charges that one accumulates in living, pass back into the earth. That is probably overly simplified and here’s perhaps a better explanation. It was rediscovered (although it was well known in Native America) that in the past when one walked barefoot on the ground, the earth would send free electrons into your body — electrons that are part of the earth itself. When these electrons would run through your body, it would spread to tissues in the body and in the past would create some very good effects. But is this true in the environment that we find ourselves in today? Is there now something in the environment that has changed this wonderful process?
One of the reasons I’m doing this blog now is that I feel I should correct myself when I find other information that shows that, indeed, this was (and used to be) quite a beneficial thing to do. But I no longer think that it is today.
Grounding has caught on recently, and there are many people who are doing more and more walking barefoot on the ground. And the science behind it used to be sound … in yesteryear.
Whoa! What do I mean by that? We no longer live in the 19th or even the 20th Century. Our world has changed so much in just the last 10 years, that one must be on the constant alert to the changes in our world, and realize that some things that might have applied in even the 70’s or 80’s … are not as they are now. Let me give some examples that are commonly known: A tomato is not just a tomato anymore (unless you grow it yourself). If it’s not organic, it could have been compromised by genetic engineering — where every cell in that tomato has had it’s DNA changed to carry either the DNA of another species (like a spider) or a pesticide — like Round-Up Ready.
It could also have been numerously sprayed with several different pesticides, which are essentially poisons, that must be washed off before eating. If that tomato has had its DNA changed with a pesticide inserted into every cell in that tomato, that pesticide cannot be washed off. But let’s take an organic tomato that is free from DNA damage and go to the store and buy tomato sauce. Unless that can specifically says it is BPA free, there is BPA plastic on the inside of that can. So what, you might say. Well, BPA plastic can cause problems due to its high presence of synthetic estrogens, which reek havoc with the body, male or female, and can cause in severe instances the shortening of a lifetime.
We didn’t have these problems in the 70’s, 80’s or even the 90’s. But we have them now. And so one has to be alert to the changes that are going on in the food source in order to serve nourishing food to one’s family.
Okay. Back to grounding. Our world is no longer the same world of the 90’s. With the abundance of wireless technology, and in particular smart meters, there is a problem with grounding. Smart meters work by directing power into the house via power lines, but is directed back to the power company underground. (Source is Tony Pantalleresco, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RMAmWaFk7dU). So nowadays, due to things like smart meters and other factors, when you are walking barefoot on the ground, a person is actually charging himself up, not the reverse. It is not a wise thing to do in this day and age in which we live. There is a remedy, if one feels charged up, as given by Tony Pantalleresco in the interview mentioned above. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RMAmWaFk7dU — at minute 8:00 to about 8:50). And that remedy is to step on a piece of aluminum, which should discharge any negative electrical energy that one has accumulated because of this new wireless technology and smart meters.
I must admit that I haven’t studied this enough to explain it better than I have, but I do know that our world is changing — and not necessarily for the better in my humble opinion. And so what do I mean by know WHEN you are. I really mean that one really should do the research on what is happening in our world today as it is, leaving past conditions and conclusions behind. Because of the effects of the EMF’s and microwaves and nano-particles in the air and in our food and cosmetics, I believe that a person needs to live in the present and not be stuck in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s with what was safe or “normal” then. It’s not the same environment.
It’s sort of like, “I don’t think we’re in Kansas anymore.” (A mis-quote from the WIZARD OF OZ.) I probably have only touched upon a little bit of change in our world in this blog.
Unfortunately, this technology has come on fast and was unpredicted in a great degree by the older generation in order to warn the younger generation of any dangers — if they are there. And so my best advice, if I were to give advice at all, would be to stay alert, don’t believe or take to fact anything you see or hear on TV, newspapers, magazines, or anywhere else — do your own research on food, water, air, the soil — and do it from several sources that are not taking advertising money from the makers of these products, and make up your own mind.
For myself, I am sad to see that something that could have been a healing technique of old, just might be doing the opposite of that today. In many ways, I can still hope that this research is not correct, although I fear that it just might be correct. And so I thought I’d tell you about it because I did a blog not too long ago, which praised the wonderful ease of just walking barefoot on the ground. Let me know your thoughts and opinions about it.
