What do you think of standing on grass?

Standing barefoot on grass will allow the earth's energy to flow upward into your body. This energy is called Qi (Chi). A friend of mine swears this will cure balance problems and jet lag. Just go outside and find some grass, take your shoes off and stand on the grass for 15 minutes or more to let the Chi move upward through your body and realign your chi.

Maybe it has something to do with the Earth's magnetic field.

Findging Grass to Stand On...

Any acupuncturist will tell you that if your Chi is misaligned, your health will suffer. I have visited an acupuncturist for a month now and my Chi is probably aligned now, but I think I will go out and stand on grass to see if my Chi will get even more aligned.

Of course, right after she told me this, I have to think, "How can you market that?". Well, we went to work designing a Chi/grass container that you can grow in your house and go stand on once in a while. I actually think that grass growing in the ground will work much better, but there are those that live in apartments and skyscraper apartments that never let their bare feet touch living grass. Well, we have the solution!

We'll need a tray that's big enough for your feet and deep enough to hold some good fresh dirt to grow the grass in. We will have special grass seed for planting in the tray and special dirt fortified with natural stuff to grow the grass in. Then you put your tray of dirt in a sunny spot, sprinkle the seeds and grow the grass. Water it a few times a week until the grass is thick and healthy. You will not have to add fertilizer or chemicals. As long as it is in a sunny area, the grass will grow thick and strong.

Remove your shoes and stand in your own plot of grass. This will align your chi for better health. It could work. I'm going to try it.

    Hi Stephanie! Yep the ocean and sand are just as importa t as grass. It's all earth vibes. I wish I lived near the ocean though. My grass right now is all crunchy and brown.

    So that's what's wrong with me! I'll be aligning my chi tomorrow if I can find a spot of grass that isn't crawling with ants! Then again, that might give me some extra energy. I can buy this theory...after all I believe that I get special healing vibrations from being near the ocean.

    The pix was trying to portray something

    but, sure you have a strong message conveyed about Chi. Yes, mother nature has immense power to heal thyself but, we gotta get our butt out and stand bare foot on it.

    Walking bare foot on grass in the morning also helps restore a weak eye sight.

    Aha...the wonders of mother nature!

    One would think smoking grass while standing on grass would double the chi absorbed, but this is a myth. Who can stand up for more than two seconds after the first toke? Better make the chi tray big enough to sit in - with another tray to hold munchies.

    What an off-the-wall hub! Love it! ;D

    Hey - you could market this as a - ready - a doggy out house! Lol for all this people that live in apartments with dogs?!?! They could have a Lil poop tray on the balcony!

    Hey, it can't hurt to try this! I am going to try it soon. LOL at your picture too of the girls standing in the grass, haha.

    James, you should see my husband do it. He stands there and goes Ohhhmmmm! I'm cracking up thinking of guys all over the world standing around on grass with their bare feet. I wonder though, I used to walk around bare footed everywhere during my hippie years and I felt great. I've always hated wearing shoes. Maybe there is something to being connected to the earth and chi. I hope it's just that easy!

    I enjoyed this Hub. You know, I think there is something to this. I am going to stand barefoot in the grass for fifteen minutes tomorrow (it's raining today) and see what happens. I probably haven't had my bare feet in the grass in 20 years. Thank you for this fine Hub.

    Those girls have grass stains on their feet

    But standing there they look so sweet

    To be aligning their chi must really be neat

    And for sure their bare buns can take the heat!

    Grasses of green? So many I've seen...

    Bermuda, Zoysia, Sultan and Rye....

    Forget all of those, yours caught my eye!

    Yeap, I practice this. I heard somewhere that standing on the grass can remove static charges from the body, better you have to stand on grass that grows on land, and not pot. I read a (spiritual) hub here which the writer mention that by standing on the ground with grass ground, the mother earth will wash away our bad energy.

    "Chi" is just another name for the life force that surrounds the universe. It is a concept that is more accepted in the east than in the west. But standing or walking bare foot on grass feels good whether in the east or west ;) and I don't mind picking up those butts littering the grass:)

    I'm thinking all the grass in the world wouldn't help my chi. At least it will never make me look like those barefoot girls! LOL.

    I think I need to water the lawn, Austinstar. What's left of the lawn this season wouldn't help my chi one bit!

    I to got a little sucked in by the possible benefits of smoking the green green grass of home:0) However after reading about the Chi remedy while standing atop the grass that goats eat.

    One would think that any man or woman who want a designers butt like these babes are showing here, will all be racing out to our front yards and getting a little Chi in our bodies.

    I love it, good write Lela, I learn something new every day. Now I will go smoke some grass:0) see if I can elevate some Chi that way to.

    While I really like the idea of eating a load of burgers, I think the chi dissipates back into the void whenever they get banged on the forehead with that steel rod. So eating dead chi is not nearly as beneficial as standing on grass chi. The french fries are cooked in chi-full oil and they grow under the grass, so I would think eating the jumbo fries with that burger would work!

    Couldn't you get the same effect from eating a load of burgers, after all they are usually made from cattle who stand on grass all day long. Incidentally, if the chi of cattle is so good, how come they end up as burgers, and a distinctly un chi person like me eats them? Perhaps this chi is not all it's cracked up to be.

    Stan, the commercially available Stand on Grass kit will include a Chia Pet. If you pet your chia pet, you will get chi through your hands. Sort of a contact high. You could use butt crack to go directly to the chi in the grass by mixing the two together which is what I was going for in the photo. I couldn't find naked butts sitting on grass, unless you count that really blurry one.

    You can align your chi by standing close to your Chia Pet too, btw.

    I'm with DRBJ - I was getting ready to really get busy with a hub-sized comment on how we're losing the drug war and need to dismantle most of the DEA. O well. And what picture is everyone talking about? I didn't see anything butt people standing on a patch of grass. I was looking at the gr(ass). I will take another look just in case I missed something.

    Love that photo! I only wish I could stand up there with them, but then the photo would freak everyone out! My chi would be aligned, however.

    Lela (Austinstar) - My first thought after admiring your pictures was that it would likely be a lot easier to remove those green grass stains from the feet than it would be to do so from the fannies.

    @diogenes - I'm sure the earth has just as much chi as the grass if you're going by magnetic field. The concrete and steel probably does interfere with chi. It's just not natural is it?

    @Micky - I think you get a lot of wind chi! Or may you produce a lot of wind chi. I think you you may be right about crazy. I know I am, but what are you?

    @drbj - A lot of people will get that idea. We were laughing about that when my friend spouted this "cure" for jet lag. We thought that was what she was talking about too! Maybe we should try standing barefoot on a field of MJ and wear some flowers in our hair?

    I'm really laughing now, Lela, and it's all your fault. I thought the title of your hub referred to: "What is your position on marijuana?"

    Thanks for the clever chuckles.

    Those butts look familiar! I know! They're my girlfriends! I worry about them catching cold!

    There is ENERGY from grass and trees to be absorbed - but don't tell anyone I said that. People think I'm crazy enough anyway. They're right of course.

    Yes, but doesn't the energy flow up from the earth, not merely from the grass itself? As it does from the sun, too. I often feel ill and bewildered inside buildings like supermarkets (the price of everything adds to the malaise!); conversely, always feel better in the fresh air, on or off grass? Bob

    8 years ago from Somewhere near the center of Texas

    Yes, there are many benefits of standing on grass. I do feel better after trying it. But it may be more of a springtime thing than a winter one. LOL

    Your picture illustrates the benefits of standing in grass. I wish I were standing right there too!
