Chakras on your feet

Many of us are aware of the 7 Chakras in our body as they are discussed often in yoga classes. (If you are not aware - the term refers to energy points in your body. They are thought to be spinning disks of energy that should stay "open" and aligned, as they correspond to bundles of nerves, major organs, and areas of our energetic body that affect our emotional and physical well-being.)

What many don't know is that there are thought to be 144 chakras throughout our body. One important chakra resides in the souls of our feet. It's rarely discussed but so important. It connects us to the earth and helps us receive grounding energy.

Just focusing on the soles of your feet can be beneficial next time you are feeling overwhelmed and can improve your intuition.

I got acquainted with these chakras on my first trip to the beautiful Xinalani resort. I didn't know exactly what to pack - I brought 5 pairs of shoes. After the first day, I was barefoot and stayed that way until we left!

Wow! I loved every minute of being "shoeless". It brought me back to those carefree childhood summer days. Before I was climbing the success ladder in the mistaken belief that it would make me happy.

Now, when I want to return to that feeling. I kick off my shoes and do this mindfulness exercise. I would love to share it with you:

  • Feel Footloose.
  • Remove your shoes.
  • Stand upright with your feet hip-width apart.
  • Close your eyes.
  • Focus on the soles of your feet. (Notice the texture of the carpet/grass/etc.)
  • Take 3 deep breaths.
  • Visualize all of your stress moving from the top of your head down to your feet and into the ground.
  • Take a few minutes in silence.
  • Notice how you feel.
