You formed my innermost being,
shaping my delicate inside and my intricate outside,
and wove them all together in my mother’s womb.
I thank you God, for making me so mysteriously complex!
Everything you do is marvelously breathtaking!
It simply amazes me to think about it!
How thoroughly you know me, Lord!
You even shaped every bone in my body,
When you created me in the secret place,
Carefully, skillfully shaping me
From nothing to something!
I remember being a young girl and falling in love with the study of science. It was as if a new world of secrets opened up to me. I loved discovering all the things going on around us and in us. It is simply amazing. When I started high school, my love for science continued as I studied biology. One day the teacher told us we were going to dissect a frog. While most high school girls would be squeamish, I remembering thinking, “This is going to be so fun!” Opening up that little creature and discovering what was inside was fascinating to me. We have life all around us, the earth being one of them. It is alive and active. The earth itself is full of electrons ready to release them to us who connect with the earth. Did you know that every time lightening hits the ground it releases up to 2 million volta of electricity? We are an electrical being and we need to receive those electrons that the earth has.Y You may be asking how we “connect” to the earth and what happens when we do (this practice is otherwise known as grounding or earthing). We can connect to the earth by taking our shoes off and walking or standing barefoot on the ground. When we do this, we are recharging our bodies. Grounding helps recalibrate our cells and hormones, as well as has an anti-inflammatory effect. Those free electrons come up into our bodies and get rid of free radicals, which is a major cause of inflammation leading to disease. It’s fascinating to know that we can connect to the earth and it can possibly help heal and relieve our sickness. Health is just as close as the earth is to our feet. Inflammation, sickness, and pain in your body are all but a manifestation – big or small – of an electron deficiency and the remedy is as close as the earth you live on! So, I challenge you to try grounding. Get those shoes off and start walking or standing on dirt, sand, grass or even cement. For best results, try it everyday for about 20 – 40 minutes. I’ve personally tried this and can tell you it works. If you are stressed you owe it to yourself to give it a try. I’m so impressed with God! The days of creation where He spoke things into being was more than epic! There are really no words that could even come close to explaining what happened on those 6 days of creation. Think about this, He spoke and a tree was created. But not just a tree that was to stand alone. But it had everything in it to live and even produce another tree. Then, He created man. He even thought of everything down to the atoms, neutrons, and electrons, and all those things that hold us together. I believe that it is a miracle everyday that we are able to get up and live and breathe. I believe that God has given each of us the ability to steward our bodies. I don’t believe He made us for us to just abuse our bodies. I don’t think you believe that either. Now is the time to take responsibility for ourselves and to trust God to help us become everything He intended us to be. Rick Warren’s quotes says it best, “God created it. Jesus died for it. The Spirit lives in it. I’d better take care of it.” I would encourage you to sit down and take some time to ponder this thought and to begin making some goals on how you can take more responsibility for yourself and your health. I guarantee that as you start setting those goals, you are going to feel better and life will be fuller. To Your Health, Beni Johnson Author of “Healthy and Free” coming out November 2015
