Place the heel down first so the body’s weight is not committed before
the ground is found then turn it to direct the toes with the intention of
the energy so the knee is positioned above the toes. This keeps movements in
proportion and under control so the weight can be transferred with ease to
where it is needed in a slow precise movement giving a solid foundation.
Looking after our feet which are the soul of the body.
Keeping the feet fit and healthy giving them a good daily massage and making sure we are grateful and give thanks to our feet for supporting us each and every day.
It is even better if you have a partner that is willing to give your feet a gentle massage and you can reciprocate and do the same for them.
I have found Ann Gillanders book’s very useful in helping me understand my own feet and body, you may find the same.
Reflexology by Ann Gillanders
A water course needs to be dredged often to prevent it from bursting its banks.
A person needs freedom of speech in order to prevent the

Just wiggling your toes can wake the body up or going for a slow gentle walk therefor cooling our body and relaxing our mind or a fast quick jog for warming the body and activating the mind, we are helping all the various systems of the body to keep moving so they do not become stagnant and silt up creating blockages.
