Activating the Chakras in Your Feet

The chakras in the bottom of our feet help to connect us to the Earth's energy field. Shoes, concrete and the stresses of modern life can cause these energy centers to become congested and closed.  When this happens, the energetic exchange between us and the Mother is curtailed, making it hard for us to release unwanted energies and receive nourishment from Gaia. This simple technique can help.
