Let us think a bit more about energy. We feel energy because we are energy. Planet Earth has her own energy too. Every single thing does. When we feel good our energy is high-literally a higher frequency than when we feel pain or negative emotion.
Every emotion has a particular frequency range. The higher the frequency, the better we feel. Here is a visual for you:
See so when you are angry you are literally vibrating at about the 150 Hz range; whereas, when you are feeling joy you are vibrating at about the 540 Hz range. That’s why anger feels crappy and promotes disease and joy feels awesome and promotes healing!
Back to Mother Earth. The Earth behaves like a gigantic electric circuit. Its electromagnetic field surrounds and protects all living things with a natural frequency pulsation of 7.83 hertz on average — the so-called “Schumann resonance,” named after physicist Dr. Winfried Otto Schumann, who predicted it mathematically in 1952.
We can think of it like the Earth’s pulse or heartbeat. Interestingly, 7.83 hertz is also the human brain’s average alpha frequency in electroencephalography. Among the five main categories of brain waves, alpha waves, which stand in the middle of the scale, induce relaxation but not quite a meditation — a state where we begin to tap into the wealth of creativity that lies just below our conscious awareness.
So, what is interesting about this relationship? As researchers look deeper into it, it turns out that tuning our brain waves to the planet’s pulse is not only healthful (as is tuning out, unhealthful) for us but it might be connected to the beginning of life itself.
Walking barefoot “grounds” us, slows us down, draws us away from frenzied or “split” energy, brings our energy back into balance, and actually promotes healing. Take your shoes off outside, on the ground, and just stand there for a few quiet moments. Feel your body and mind start relaxing. Notice your breath slowing down. Perhaps you can even feel the stress leaving your body. Just a few minutes whenever you feel stressed or out of sorts.
You will be glad you did!
