The Transformative Power of Immersing in NatureMar 02, 2022
Over the past two years, I have discovered the profound impact of spending more time in nature than ever before. By "nature," I mean fully immersing myself in the natural settings of forests, beaches, and jungles. The therapeutic effects of such immersion on our health cannot be overstated.
Here's why immersing ourselves in nature is so fundamental to our health.
Circadian Rhythm Entrainment:
When we step outdoors with our naked eyes, we allow our circadian clocks, specifically the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN), to realign with the natural rhythm of light frequencies in our environment. This synchronization of our internal clock with the external world is essential for regulating our sleep-wake cycle and overall physiological processes.
The Remarkable Practice of Earthing:
Connecting with the bare Earth and its living components with our bare skin has transformative effects on our health. Through this process, the Earth's electricity in the form of free electrons floods into our bodies, thanks to our highly conductive and hydrated connective tissue network. This influx of electrons acts as an instant source of energy to power our electric bodies. Earthing not only provides electrons but also helps balance our autonomic nervous system, improves blood flow and nutrient delivery, and reduces inflammation.
The Subtle Energy of Trees and Plants:
Beyond their role in providing electrons, trees, and plants offer another dimension of health benefits through their emission of negative ions. These negative ions structurally organize and energize the water within our bodies, leading to a coherent and energetic state. Moreover, the subtle energy emitted by trees can positively influence our human biofield, enhancing our wireless energy fields.
The Healing Sounds of Nature:
The sounds of nature, such as birdsong, insect chirping, wind rustling through trees, and running water, encompass a broad spectrum of frequencies. This range includes infrasonic (below human hearing), audible, and ultrasonic (above human hearing) frequencies. The infrasonic range proves to be particularly nourishing, as it stimulates the vagus nerve, offers pain relief, and even promotes subcellular melatonin production.
For us to fully reap the sonic benefits, the sound must have a sufficiently high amplitude (between 60-75dB), which underscores the importance of immersing ourselves entirely in nature.
Moreover, the nourishing sounds in nature play a vital role in entraining our membrane receptors to their signals, thereby optimizing DNA expression through sound's interaction with water—a truly incredible aspect of our connection with the natural world.
And the benefits don't end there! We've barely begun to explore the positive impact of sunlight on the skin, which helps balance hormones and brain chemistry. Nor have we touched on the intricate dance of microbial interactions, the therapeutic frequencies emitted by plants, the brainwave entrainment induced by the Schumann resonance, the profound art of cloud watching, and so much more.
In conclusion, full immersion in nature goes far beyond just a leisurely activity. It is a powerful practice that harmonizes our bodies with the natural rhythms of life. From entraining our circadian clocks to receiving an influx of free electrons through Earthing, to benefiting from the subtle energies of trees and the therapeutic sounds of nature, every aspect of this connection brings us closer to optimal health and vitality.
The transformative power of immersing ourselves in nature is a testament to the profound bond between humanity and the natural world, reminding us of our innate connection to the Earth and all its living beings. So let us step outside, embrace the beauty around us, and rediscover the immense healing potential that lies within the heart of nature.
