Being barefoot & grounded to earth is the best feeling. Living in the city with lots of concrete one tends to forget to go bare, until we hit the woods. Walking/running barefoot in the woods the entire weekend of the Rainbow Gathering in Gifford Pinchot National Forest in Washington State without a single nick, cut, scrape etc. & feeling much more connected with the earth & people. My feet were super clean, happy & healing walking on trails that felt like sponges from thousands of years of fallen leaves & needles from the trees.
I just want to share how much my earthing blanket has helped me with insomnia. I have slept very badly, sometimes staying awake all night, but normally taking several hours to get to sleep and then waking up far too early. This was really getting me down. I was trawling on Amazon in the book section, and as always happens looking at one book lead to another and so on, and I came to the Earthing book. I read the many good testimonials, and then checked with the American Amazon site, and read many more. Earthing just made such logical sense, that it was a "euraka" moment for me, and I thought that this was the missing piece in the puzzle that was my life. So I ordered the book, and then went on a website and ordered the earthing sheet. I am a pensioner living on a very small income, so it was a big thing for me to buy without even reading the book first. Well it came the very next day, and I read that anxiety sufferers can take longer to reap the benefits, but within a week I definately noticed a difference in my sleeping. I also felt my anxiety levels drop and felt more peaceful.
Now about six weeks on I can guarantee I can go to bed and get to sleep without jerking awake with anxiety a few minutes later. I do still have to get up once a night for the loo, and don't always sleep until the alarm, but this earthing sheet has been the best investment in my health that I have ever made. I sleep deeply now, and for a good seven to eight hours. I thought I would have insomnia for ever and dreaded never getting a decent night's sleep. Also it was a lottery as to whether I would sleep or not. Now I would say it is 95% better. Please all you insomniacs out there, buy an earthing sheet, and try to walk barefoot too. It is a wonderful experience, and you want more and more of it.
