"We’re passionate about promoting a more grounded way of living that is possible when connected to the Earth’s electric potential of zero volts."
I don't know what the above means, or if it has any merit, but i do know that when i go truly barefoot (no footwear on bare earth), i do tend to feel better in ways (unless i happen to step in dog poo or the like, bit of a buzz kill psychologically at least).
Whether it's a structural body/ligament/muscle/bone thang, a "grounding" earth electricity thang, a kind of placebo affect, or something else, i don't know and am not certain of one way or the other. Ultimately, it's more important and affecting to me that i notice i feel better and its an automatic thing, and i doubt it's placebo because i don't have any concrete, preconceived belief about it to begin with.
Unfortunately, i do not know all there is to know about reality. Uncertainty is very scary for most folks, and so we spend our lives convincing ourselves and being convinced by the society and cultures we live in, to think we know all there is to know about different subjects. These are called belief systems and like rules, are meant to be broken unless they are accurate and true.
I've had enough belief system crashes due to conflicts with experience to be hesitant as a trend to build up any strong and fast belief systems based solely on the opinions of others, even the majority or the experts.
These experiences have lead me to consider deeply that reality is much bigger than what mainstream beliefs, whether scientific or religious, would have us believe. Funny enough, if you sort of merge the two, it sort of comes closer.
I guess what i'm saying is that an open, but skeptical mind set, is almost always a constructive, helpful approach and process.
A funny true (and mild) account along these lines. For a time, awhile back, i was into gem stones. I had started to wear a piece of Azurite. After a day or two of constantly wearing in contact with my skin (on my neck, over my chest), i started to get a continued headache (not something i expected or read about). I am not prone to headaches whatsoever, rarely ever get them. The only time is when i have a bad cold, but in this case i certainly felt fine otherwise.
I mentioned this odd headache to my future wife (new girlfriend in the past), who was a lot less open minded than myself until she started to have some of her own non conventional experiences, how i thought it might be related to wearing the Azurite as this was the only thing that changed recently.
She laughed at and made fun of me, saying sarcastically, "oh, magic rocks.."
On an intuition i said to her, "ok, maybe it has nothing to do with the Azurite, but let's test this. Lay down and let's put the Azurite on your upper forehead and let's see what, if anything, happens."
Convinced nothing would happen, and it was an easy way for her to prove herself right , she agreed. Within about 15 minutes or so, she started to get an intense, somewhat throbbing headache much to her surprise and dislike. It lasted for a little while after she took the Azurite off her forehead.
She didn't quite laugh and make fun after, as she had before.
What the above means to this day, i really don't know with any certainty. All i'm certain of, is we both experienced very noticeable effects from close contact with this stone. I do know that a small little rock, should not, from conventional, mainstream scientific view, induce significant headaches.
In any case, i've observed among my fellow humans, that both a truly open or truly scientific mind is quite rare.
p.s. after wearing it for a couple more days after, the headache went away, whatever it was, my body got used to or adjusted to it.
I lean to thinking the Earth is a much more powerful energy than a little stone, so maybe direct contact with it has some importance and effect? Again, i don't know what the exact mechanism might be, whether elctro magnetic, or something else, don't know.
But, i wont be buying these special sandals anytime soon, i can just take off my shoes to get that feel good effect.
