from Lynda Yraceburu
Our Feet are, among other things, the main Gates, or Doorways, of our grounding impulse to Mother Earth. Everytime our feet have met the road they have been desensitized due to abuse blockage. Often, our contact with the world through our feet has been harsh and painful experience with each and every step we take. Through stress, trauma and daily life happenings, we have lost the sensual aspect of touching the Earth with our feet. There is a lot of energy available that can only be received through the soles of the feet; however, if the energetic gates are closed off to this flow, we, in turn, close our doorway to physical health within our body, creating illness and dis-ease.
These gates in the feet correspond to every part of the body, including all of the organs, endocrine system (glands), lymph and nervous system. These gates can be effectively stimulated to relieve stress and tension, create deep relaxation, improve the blood supply, promote the unblocking of nerve impulses to normalize, and balance the entire body.
The feet contain 26 bones, 56 ligaments, 38 muscles and thousands of nerve endings in each foot. It is said, that by the time you reach the age of 35 years, your feet will have all ready carried you about 45,00 miles. It's a small wonder that so many of us suffer from achy, painful, hot and tired feet. Thankfully those over-worked, neglected, forgotten ligaments and muscles respond well to touch, from both the sensual loving stimulation of our Earth Mother and human massaging touch. Working with your feet can heal them; as well as the rest of you through improved circulation, assistance in the elimination of toxic by-products, and providing over all stress reduction. Opening the gates gives the toxic matter a place to go, there by decreasing over all stress, tension and dis-ease.
For many of us, our feet barely see the light of day, let alone get a chance to be naked on our Mother. It seems that we believe these important, complex body parts need protection at all cost. We get out of bed, go into slippers, then into a cocoon of synthetic fiber (AKA socks), followed by stuffing them into shoes that don't breathe, cutting our circulation off. We, then, stay in our painful and suffocating footwear until it's time for bed where the cycle then starts over.
The best way for you to walk your way to health and vitality, guard against foot-ills and body imbalances is prevention. This can be done in many different ways. First by wearing natural type shoes or sandals made of leather, canvas, or rope. Avoid rubber, plastic and all artificial fibers. Choose roomy round toes and low heels. Keep your connection as close and clear to our Earth Mother as possible. Keep your feet cool and clean. Walk bare foot on the grass and sand minimally 10 minutes daily to strengthen and revitalize the soles of the feet. Give yourself permission to practice going bare foot more often by cutting your slippers out of the picture in the house. You will certainly be amazed how much better you will feel.
Always remove footware immediately on arrival home from the many steps you have taken from your day. The feet need to be aired and have a chance to breath. Splash cold water or take a quick cold foot bath, towel dry rubbing vigorously to rejuvenate the feet. This aids in relieving tension, stress and inflammation of organs and glands which will releases pain and pressure, bring vitality back to the whole body.
Doing the alphabet with your feet. While in a seated poison, bring your feet out in front of you, raise them up 4 to 6 inches and trace the alphabet. You can do capital or lower case, it's your chose. As you do this, notice how wonderful it feels to make circles, lines and squiggles. This will help to rejuvenate and tonify the organs. You may feel like you have had a nice massage and that your organs have more energy and vitality.
Rub or massage your feet and roll your toes. Invite the energy and circulation back into your feet and legs. This can help with the stomach, intestines, liver, spleen, bladder and kidneys. Can you imagine how much more health and vitality you can have if you work on your own feet for 5 minutes before you go to bed ever night.
The body can do it's own healing if the gates in the feet are open, giving the dis-ease a place to go. With some help opening the gates in your feet, your body can work with problems beginning with acne, ending with sprains or fractures and including (among many other things) alcoholism, bed wetting, constipation, diabetes, fatigue, high blood pressure, kidney stones, multiple sclerosis, pyorrhea, shingles, urinary troubles and whiplash.
