Shoes for Energy Healers and Earthing Fans

There’s a company that makes shoes for energy healers, and those who are interested in “Earthing,” or connecting energy with the earth for all of the health benefits that come with it. Earthing is real, it’s also called grounding, and I incorporate it into my practice daily. 

A word on earthing/grounding:
There are many ways to get reacquainted with that people-Earth connection. One way is through a little visualization, thinking of yourself as a tree with roots growing down from your soles into the earth, then visualizing absorbing that healing earth-frequency into those roots and up into your body. (Soul to sole…hmm!) Try it. It doesn’t take long, it helps clear out negative energy from our systems, releases free radicals, and also clears the mind. Make sure to breathe while doing this exercise.

Another way to stay connected with our home planet (which, by the way, is like a powerful magnet for balancing our systems), is to stroll around barefoot. I love doing that in the summer, but now things are getting rather cool and wet for an outdoor barefoot walk through the yard. 

Back in 2012, I had the honor of reviewing some really beautiful sandals made for grounding by Juil, the company I mentioned who is directly addressing the health benefits of grounding with their shoe designs. They graciously sent me a pair of really high quality sandals (I still have them! My daughter has taken them and wore them every day throughout the spring and summer, and early Fall. That’s what I get for letting her borrow them once – ha.) The shoes help with grounding via a series of copper “dots” embedded in the sole of the shoe which act as conductors for the earth-foot connection. Makes sense – that’s exactly how we ground our houses – via copper.

Well, Juil recently contacted me again and said they’ve made some shoes for Fall, and asked if I’d like to test a pair. That was an easy question! Of course! Excitedly, I opened the box with a new pair of shoes inside.

Check them out!

The first thing I noticed is the feel of the leather. It’s the softest leather I’ve ever touched, let alone wore. I can hardly tell I’m wearing shoes because they’re so comfy. The quality is exceptional. As someone who has often bought shoes at major discount shoe stores, this was a new experience for me. What can I say?  There’s a difference. There are actually wooden heels attached beneath the slip-proof rubber sole.

Then, there are those copper dots. Here’s a picture of the shoes after I’ve worn them a few times. See the dots? They go through the sole to the inside. 

I was wondering if one could still receive the benefits of grounding through socks. So I checked the website. Apparently, I’m not the only one to ask that question, because it’s covered in their FAQ section. The answer is that our feet naturally perspire, and the moisture helps the copper continue to conduct the earth energy for our feet. Right! Water is also a conductor. Somewhere in the back of my mind’s science education, I remember that one. 

So yes, I wore these lovely shoes. Besides looking extremely snazzy, being luxuriously comfy, and keeping my feet warm, I really did enjoy the feel of them. Any chance to keep myself grounded is a really good idea. I’m a person who is always thinking unless I intentionally slow my mind down. So, being connected with the earth, being grounded, is really good for me. It also makes my own grounding practice faster, like grounding in bare feet outside – or almost. (By the way, my daughter is under strict orders that these aren’t for sharing. I know from experience that I’d never have the chance to wear them if I lent them out even once!)

I applaud Juil for caring about our earth connection. I also appreciate they use natural vegetable based dyes instead of nasty chemicals. The free shipping is a good deal too. They’re nicely packaged in a thick, drawer-like shoe box, too, which makes a great “upcycle” item for little toys, CDs, whatever needs some storage. Check out their shoes. They have lots of new designs, and they’re totally worth trying.

As I mentioned, I did receive a free pair to test, and my opinions are entirely my own. No other compensation was received for my opinion. However, I was impressed enough to become an affiliate. Maybe you will be too, when you try their shoes! Order yourself a pair here!

  • Do you do grounding as part of your day?
  • Have you read the book “Earthing” or any similar manuals?
Peace and love.

Moving Energy Around

I had the pleasure and honor to meet Warren Grossman on Thursday evening at the class I’ve been teaching at Akiva High School. He had a roomful of teens riveted as he told his story of going from a basically everyday educated person to having a near-death experience with a parasite, and a slow recovery aided by the Earth. He was never the same once he had the chance to observe the Earth’s effect on his body, healing, heart, and perception of living energy. It was truly inspirational. Second half of class he was just with me and my two students who were present (two were not present and sure missed a lot). He demonstrated energy healing on each student in turn, and they were very moved by the experience. He talked about how he can see their chakras, and the size, shape, color and position of each told him things about where each person needed healing. Amazing.

At the end of class, he took a look at my energy and invited me to come to his home for a healing because he thought I could use it in several places. Not surprising – I know I tend to burn the candle at both ends on a regular basis. I wanted to experience for myself the effects of his healing method so I went on Friday. According to him, I was pretty out of whack energy wise. So he did meditational stuff, had me “feel” where my feet are connected to the ground, and he stood across from me, and kind of pointed at each chakra and did adjustments on them from where he stood. I felt…vibrational energy. He also had me walk around his apartment a few times concentrating on my feet. The feet take in energy from the Earth, so being aware of them is the first step (ha – pun!) to becoming aware of this energy. He did the adjustment two more times, had me walk two more times, and sent me on my way. Although he usually charges for a session, he did not ask me for money. I brought him a Tachyon charged gemstone as a gift of appreciation. The next day I felt pretty sluggish energy wise. His advice to me was to get regular exercise and each day 2-3 times a day to stand back against a tree. I admit I haven’t been able to do those things quite yet due to blechy cold weather. But I’ll get to it…

In Tachyon news… Ole Gabrielson has developed a new Tachyon energy attunement called Tachyon Source attunement. This allows one to charge an object as a source of Tachyon energy – permanently – such that the object will charge other objects it touches and the surrounding air with Tachyon energy (which converts to Life Force Energy – Ki). I have received this attunement and have already passed it on to one person. I’ve been experimenting with charging water, stones, crystals, rocks, the shower head, and disks with this energy. The vibration seems more subtle than Reiki feels to me, yet I do feel it has given me an energy boost during the day, and also during distance energy channeling. If you are interested in the Tachyon Source attunement, please send me an email. The prerequisite for this attunement is Tachyon energy attunement. The fee will be $25 ($18 if I have attuned you to Kundalini Reiki or Tachyon energy). I will email the manual and offer an emailed certificate as well (if desired). I’m a member of Ole’s forum, and people on there do interesting experiments with Tachyon energy. If you’d like an invitation to the forum (it’s invitation only), please email me and I’ll invite you.

Finally, thanks to my friend Cher for being my mentor in intuitive development. She has guided me in practicing channeling lately. I posted on a Facebook group an offer to channel information if someone has a question, as long as it’s understood that this is for my practice and I make no promises about accuracy. All I ask in return is that I receive feedback afterward. The question should be something the person wants to know – not “What color are my eyes?” but something about your options or future, or something you are wondering about. A little background is appreciated as well. I’ve done this three times now for various people, and it seems as if it is going well. The feedback has been positive and rather validating for me. So consider yourselves, my dear blog readers, also invited to try this with me and present me the opportunity for further practice. Just drop me an email and I’ll get back to you with what I hear from your spiritual guides when I tune in. It’s a learning experience for both of us – win-win!

Always a journey and an adventure!

Reiki Retreat This Weekend!

Hello friends!

Tomorrow morning through Sunday afternoon I will be away from my computer (gasp!) in a nature reserve with 14 Reiki practitioners and Reiki Masters, learning, sharing Reiki with each other, and connecting with nature. Woo-hoo, I am so excited!

And look what I made to bring with me:

What do you think?

I’ll post on Sunday night to share my experiences and the wonderful contacts that I’m sure I’ll be making with other Reiki people. This could be another step in my journey, and I am soooo ready!

Intuition and The Universe Lining Up

This morning I had an interesting experience. I was typing away at my computer, trying to get some work done while I could when I started to feel tingly – as if I was receiving Reiki. I had a quick flash of my friend, whom I had attuned to Usui Reiki level 2. So before stopping to think, I shot her off a quick email telling her the time and asking if she had just been sending me Reiki.
A couple hours later she replied a surprised “yes” answer. This is the first time I’ve been able to notice Reiki without knowing it was coming, and also intuit its source.

Today my husband and I discovered to our dismay that a large frame around one of our back room windows is rotting out. We called a few window companies to get estimates and left messages, worrying about the cost. I left and took the kids to the playground.
We had just gotten home from the playground when a little puppy with a collar came wandering into our yard. Seeing no owner about, I coaxed the puppy to come to me, and called the phone number on his collar. I left a message with my phone number and a few minutes later a thankful person called and was on the way to get the dog. When he came, we found out he is a handy man who moved a block away recently and he could replace and fix our window. He called us later with an estimate. I think we’ll hire him. Nice.

It seemed as if the universe just lined up right today.

Also –
I want to show you a new blog I like. I added the feed to my right hand column, but please check it out. It’s excellent – informative, thought provoking, and relevant to all things Reiki. I’ll be taking the Reiki 30 Day Challenge probably starting next week. Here it is: . Funny name, but way impressive. Check it out.

I’m so excited because next weekend I’m going on a Reiki Retreat!!!! From Saturday morning until 2 pm on Sunday, I’ll be in a beautiful environmental education retreat center, staying in a beautiful wildlife reserve, and sleeping in nice dorm-type rooms, sharing Reiki experiences, nature connection, and Reiki treatments with 14 Reiki people. The immersion and connecting with other Reiki people will be amazing – I know it! I’m so excited already! I’ll be getting more details about the schedule in a few days. I’ll keep you posted.

Earth Energy and Reality Therapy

Kind of funny…

I’ve been enjoying short meditations outside in the back yard, connected to the earth by sitting, laying or standing in my bare feet. I wrote a couple days ago about seeing white sparkles afterward, and that has happened again since then. So I’m pretty enthused about this earth healing stuff.

Well, I had a stomach upset and had read some of Warren Grossman’s Handbook for Healers, which I had ordered from his website. It advised that lying on one’s front on the earth is healing, while lying on one’s back is for clearing out negative energy. So I gave it a try – I lay down on my front on the ground in my back yard. The ground was cool, the grass was a little itchy against my face, and the earth was a little uneven but I persisted. Eventually it was relaxing and my stomach pains faded. I got up, because one of my kids needed my attention, and I was walking when I had a cold feeling on my arm. It was a slug.

There’s the reality side to Earth healing. I wonder if it’s okay to use a blanket…

Mom/Daughter Reiki and Being Starstruck

Yesterday, my almost-9 year-old daughter Rayna came with me to give volunteer Reiki healing at the Reiki center at Ursuline College. Rayna is Reiki level 2, and we channeled Reiki healing together to a person who came in to receive Reiki. It was a strong Reiki experience for our recipient, and all were touched by the presence of a child giving healing energy with her mom. It was good for all of us. Rayna said she wants to do it again next week.

And….some exciting news is that I emailed Warren Grossman, the author of a book that’s deeply impressed me lately, To Be Healed by the Earth. He lives here in the Cleveland area. I asked him if he would be willing to come and speak to my teen students in the Seeking Connections course I’m teaching. He said yes!!! We set a date for Nov. 13, and he asked me to invite other classes and staff to come too. It’s quite perfect for my class, because not only is his story inspiring, but he’s also Jewish, and I’m teaching this as a Jewish course on connecting to a spiritual source other than by formal prayer. I think his visit will be a highlight and I’m very grateful that he accepted so willingly.

I’ve found lately also that when I try to connect with another person’s energy for the purpose of asking a question of the person’s guides or higher insight, afterward my third eye chakra tingles for a while. It’s good. I like knowing that I’m growing in ways I’ve been longing for.

And, dear readers, you can now visit me on Facebook with the throngs of our other friends out there in Internetland. So come on over and leave me a message on my wall.

White Sparkles and Earth Energy

As I mentioned in my last post, I’ve been reading Warren Grossman’s To Be Healed by the Earth. In his book, he describes how the Earth’s energy healed him from the brink of death to full health. He includes exercises for connecting with the Earth’s energy, and I’ve been trying them lately.

I’ve been spending a little time in my back yard, with shoes off, sometimes laying down, and sometimes sitting in quiet meditation connecting with the Earth’s energy. It feels like receiving Reiki – gentle and soothing.

Today, I went outside after doing a big chunk of work at my computer, and I decided that I had 20 minutes to do Earth meditation/healing. So I layed down and felt the ground against my spine, imagining my chakras extending down into the Earth, and connecting with the energy there. Then I sat up, connecting from a sitting position, and keeping my thoughts as clear as possible. When I opened my eyes, I saw white sparkles dancing in the air. I thought it was my glasses, so I took them off. I still saw them. I enjoyed watching them for a few minutes, and moved my hand through them. They looked like dust mites, but they were white light. It was fascinating, and I have never seen anything like that with my eyes open before. By the way, when I looked at my watch, 45 minutes had passed.

I asked Cher, my psychic friend, about it, and she said I saw the energy in the air. I’ve heard that energy looks like white light sparkles, but never seen it for myself until today.

Also, in other news, I started teaching my Seeking Connections class for teens tonight. I had two students, though at least two more will be joining the class next week. I have so much to share with them – this class is about finding alternative connections to a spiritual source outside of formal worship services. Reiki, yoga, chanting, meditation, creative prayer, and connecting with Earth’s energy are all part of it. Plus studying Jewish scholars who were seekers, and what they found. I wish I could have taken this class years ago. I also hope that my students can be open minded enough to learn that there are ways to find a connection that they may not have considered before. It’s a big undertaking. I wish I had twelve students, but I’ll take what comes to me for this first time. Plus the students are interested in finding something and have a healthy skepticism that is challenging, but good too.
