Lao Tzu-‘Breathe through your feet’ - the most effective and simple technique for relieving stress
Lao Tzu, is a Chinese legendary and historical figure who is considered the founder of Taoism.
Laozi or “old master” is said to have been born and died sometime in the 6th century BC, although some historical records find him in China closer to the 4th century BC. that Laozi was a contemporary of Confucius, which would have placed him in China at the end of the pre-armistice period during the Zhou dynasty. The most common biographical record of his life is recorded in Sima Qian s Shiji, or Records of a Great Historian, supposedly written around 100 BC.
The mystery surrounding Laozi’s life begins with its design. Traditional reports show that Laozi’s mother watched the shooting star and as a result, Laozi was conceived. He spent as many as 80 years in his mother’s womb before growing up as a fully grown man with a gray beard, a symbol of wisdom in ancient China. He was born in the village of Chu Jen in the state of Chu.
Laozi became emperor or archivist and historian for the emperor during the Zhou dynasty. As a shi, Laozi would be an authority on astronomy, astrology, and divination, as well as a custodian of sacred texts.
Lao Tzu, the father of Taoism and Taoist medicine, said thousands of years ago, "Whoever breathes through his feet learns the secret of life and true health."
What did he mean by that?
1. In the middle of the feet is a very important and special acupressure point K1 (Kidney 1 - Kidney 1), when stimulated, life energy is most restored, and a lot of blood flow to our kidneys, adrenal glands (which are most depleted by stress), and reproductive authorities. Where there is blood circulation, there is regeneration. This point is a direct recovery switch and the best SOS against exhaustion. The entire Tai Chi and Chi Gong is designed to open this point and connect it to the earth. Why?
2.Earthing / Grounding: Numerous studies confirm that when a bare foot touches a natural surface, the earth's electromagnetic field regulates our internal bioelectrical environment and cools the overheated sympathetic nervous system due to stress. Not only that: the contact of the feet with the ground resets our internal biorhythmic clock (that it exists is confirmed by the Nobel Prize), and calms excessive levels of the stress hormone cortisol.
There is a huge amount of stress around us right now. Which affects our cortisol. Cortisol imbalance is associated with inflammation, weak immune system, poor sleep, depression, irritability, with aging.
It is crucial for our mental and physical health to regulate our cortisol and prevent its harmful effects.
Spend at least a few minutes a day with your feet touching the ground, grass, sand ... nature.
If you want more multiplied regeneration effects, massage the point in the middle of your feet. And when you are in contact with the ground with your foot, imagine that with each exhalation, all the stress drains from your feet, and when you inhale, calmness, health and strength enter you.
The simplest things are the most effective - just use them!
