Massaging our feet ourselves or having someone do it for us is an excellent way to open our energy centres in our feet and some of our meridians so more of the earth’s energy can enter our bodies.
Start with which ever foot you like.
- Place your foot on to the opposite thigh if you are massaging your own feet.
- With your thumbs, circle all around the ball of the foot and pushing up your toes with firm pressure, do this for a couple of minutes.
- We then use a scissor action, moving thumbs out from the centre to the sides, do this for the ball of the foot and move down to the arch for a minute.
- Now take your knuckles and knead the arch, from the top of the heel to the ball of the foot. This can be done with a ball or the back of a spoon. Massaging the plantar fascia helps to stretch this ligament, doing this makes it less likely to become inflamed and cause pain when walking, known as Plantar Fasciitis.
- Now do the other foot.
Doing this ten-minute routine regularly will soothe aching feet, preventing plantar fasciitis, helping you walk better, improving your posture.
Opening the chakras in your feet, will help you feel more connected, help you heal quicker, improve your sleep, and focus during the day, you will also feel more benefit from meditation and other spiritual activities.
Once you have opened your feet chakras, it is good to walk on grass barefoot and really connect with the earth. If you do not have grass accessible then use a wooden or stone floor. As a last resort use a carpeted floor.
