The indigenous people never used to live down in the Valley. They used to live only high up in the Apus (the mountains) where the energy was the strongest and could easily enter the body through the breath.
Everything involving nature is giving a receiving energy, once you notice this energy you begin to harvest it. (sound familiar to those who practice qi-gong or yoga?)
When a local is digging up the ground, they use the energy or receive the energy the Earth is giving off, they are also giving their energy back to the Earth with each movement. When the locals walk in the Apus, they use a strong, confident nostril breath to both conserve and best utilize their internal energy, this is why they do not get winded in high elevation and can safely travel many miles.....
Before working with plants, they have a conscious exchange of energy with the plants, same thing for when they harvest a fruit or a leaf. Energy moves circularly, when breathing you see both the past and the future, therefore time does not exist, you walk between time. Not wearing shoes also helps to connect to the energy of Allpamama through direct contact.
