“The safest place to be during an earthquake would be in a stationary store.”
~ George Carlin, Brain Droppings

 

In Australia we’ve had a string of small earthquakes in the past few days. Seismic activity like this can be very unsettling for energetically sensitive people.

In the days before an earthquake, volcanic eruption or other shift in the earth’s crust, positive ions build up beneath the surface and start leaking through fissures, making their way to the surface. Vast electrical currents travel through the liquids and rocks beneath our feet, generating more and more of these positive ions. Before an extreme seismic event it is thought that the flood of positive ions into the atmosphere is what warns animals to move to safer ground before an earthquake, eruption or tsunami.

Positive ions in the air can have a profound negative affect on all animals, including humans. They disturb sleep patterns, raising serotonin levels and disturbing hormones  and normal brain function. They cause agitation, hyperactivity, restlessness, irritability and mental confusion. They generate feelings of fatigue that is not restored by normal sleep, and they can lower the immunity.

 

Usually, to ground or earth ourselves, we can simply stand barefoot on the earth. The earth’s crust normally holds a negative charge and infuses our body with negative ions which reduce inflammation within our bodies and restore sleep cycles. But when the earth is undergoing seismic activity or solar flares the surface becomes momentarily positive. We can’t ground, and we feel this disconnection as a disturbing energetic build-up inside us.

In the meantime, until the earth’s energy stabilises again, there are things we can do to help ourselves become re-grounded:

  1. Drink water with 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda and 1 teaspoon lemon juice or apple cider vinegar  – this will neutralise the static electricity in you. Don’t have more than 2 doses of this in a day.
  2. Hold or carry a red jasper or a black tourmaline – or both if you have them
  3. Make a grid of 4 stones for your bed – use hematite, carnelian or any jasper. No quartz! Activate with red light. Don’t know how? Go here – How to Build a Crystal Grid
  4. Rub Sesame Oil onto the soles of your feet
  5. Use Lavender oil for calming your limbic system – inhale or rub on soles of feet.

Emergency Help for Grounding Yourself and Opening your Feet Chakras

“Get yourself grounded and you can navigate even the stormiest roads in peace.”
~ Steve Goodier

 

You may be aware that the Earth has experienced some fairly intensive geomagnetic storms and solar flares just recently.

The energy of those storms has passed, but there is still an energetic residue that we are dealing with, the effects of which may last a couple more weeks.

Most people are feeling an easing, and a softening. They are feeling more balanced and hopeful. But a few sensitive souls seem to be still stuck in their heads. They might be feeling not quite in their bodies or not quite grounded.

And there’s a good reason for that.

Geomagnetic storms bombard the earth’s atmosphere with electrically charged electrons and protons, creating positively charged ions. These tiny particles interact with the earth’s crust, which is usually negatively charged, and when the bombardment is intense the skin of the earth may end up with a neutral or positive charge for a short time.

What does that mean for you? You may find it hard to ground yourself to the earth right now. Energy that would normally be discharged through your feet instead stays within the body, going round and round in a feedback loop. That will change as the polarity and charge of the ground reverts to normal, but I have a few tips to help you manage until then.

When your feet chakras are blocked it puts additional stress on your liver and digestive system, making it harder for your body to detox and heal. It can also make you overly sensitive to caffeine and alcohol, and foods you would not normally react too, as these substances take so much longer to transit and exit your body. You can also have digestive issues, bloating, rising tension and become so emotionally over-stimulated so that you move into hyper-sensitivity.

Here are my top eight suggestions to open and clear those feet chakras, leaving you balanced and grounded:

  1. Massage sesame oil into your feet for a few minutes before you go to bed. This helps to drain all of that spinning energy down into your feet, and the out through your foot chakras. It will also promote a more restful night’s sleep. Rubbing firmly (not so it hurts!) over the top of the foot eases tension in the mind, chest and throat. As you press from the little toe down to the heel you release tension along your shoulders and arms. Gentle sliding pressure on your instep releases energy in the spine. When you work the heel you release tension in the belly. Finally, rub the instep in a circular motion to open and drain the foot chakra. Apply a little extra oil if it is needed, as it will absorb into the skin of your feet.
  2. Sesame oil with a few drops of cedarwood and frankincense essential oils – If you’re feeling disconnected from your intuition and emotions, this blend rubbed into the soles of both feet with help you to release and open the foot chakras and reconnect you to your heart and higher self
  3. Sesame oil with a drop or two of vetiver – If you’re experiencing anxiety, panic or a sense of discomfort you can’t put your finger one, this blend rubbed into the soles of your feet will open your foot chakras and desensitize your overwrought nervous system so that you come back into balance.
  4. Coconut oil with ylang ylang – Feel like you’ve been hit by a Mack Truck? Coconut oil and ylang ylang work to counter anger, stress, frustration, exhaustion and will gently restore confidence and a sense of inner peace.
  5. Black tourmaline – This is a fabulous crystal to carry in your pocket, to hold in your hands, or to grid around your bed when the energies are unsettled. It firmly connects you back into your body and grounds you into the earth, giving a sense of safety and protection. Soak a black tourmaline in your sesame oil? Fantastic!!!
  6. Hematite – Rub a tumbled hematite over the soles of your feet and foot chakras, finishing with that circular motion over the chakras in your soles. Hematite will open and clear the foot chakras like pulling the plug out from a bathtub of water. This is a great one to use during the day, and can be done at work. Terrific if you spend a lot of time in front of a computer.
  7. Epsom Salts and Crystal Foot Soak – Fill a small tub with warm water, a few tumbled stones, and up to a cup of Epsom Salts (pure magnesium crystals). Place your feet in the tub and use the stones to give the underside of your feet a gentle massage. This will release your feet chakras and give your body a hit of that calming mineral – magnesium. Perfect for soothing a frazzled nervous system, cleansing your aura and realigning all your chakras. Feel free to add essential oil to your foot soak, and to follow with a sesame oil rub for some deep self-care.
  8. Stand barefoot in a river, stream or ocean for at least five minutes. Press and gently rub your feet on the bottom to open and activate your feet chakras. Moving water maintains a negative charge. Perfect for what you need right now.

Once this energy has cleared, you’ll be able to ground and work with your foot chakras in the usual way. You can read more about that here:

Unblocking and Grounding your Foot Chakras

It only takes a few minutes to work with your foot chakras, but those few minutes are a significant act of love and nurture that will truly help you to stay strong, centred and grounded so that you can live in a way that is satisfying and which helps you be your best self. Please don’t give yourself a hard time about the way you’ve been feeling. Celebrate the fact that you are an energetically sensitive soul!

Unblocking and Grounding your Foot Chakras

“In a flash of wonderment she saw firm, continuous ground under her feet, stretching from back then to right now and on and on as far as her eyes could take her.” 
~ Ann Brashares, The Second Summer of the Sisterhood

Ever felt any of the following?

  • Vague, disconnected and disoriented.
  • Spaced out, especially when doing meditation or other forms of spiritual connection.
  • Full of ideas but either can’t make a decision or can’t follow anything through from concept to completion.
  • Don’t hold healings, or chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture treatments etc for more than a few hours before the good results all dissipate.
  • Feel like you are exhausted even after a good night’s sleep.
  • Slow to heal.
  • Can’t seem to work out who you are or what you want.

If you answered yes to any of these you could be experiencing blocked foot chakras. On the underside of your foot, in your instep, is a large energy centre known as your foot chakra. This chakra works strongly to earth your base chakra. When the chakra is open, activated and grounded it also helps balance and energise all other chakras in the body.

These simple steps can help you to unblock and activate the chakras in your feet.

1. Take a large tub of warm water and place a number of smooth stones or tumbled crystals in the bottom.  Place your bare feet in the water and roll your feet over the stones until they feel energised.

I like to use a variety of crystals that work with each of the major chakras so that I have a rainbow of colour. But I always advise you just to use what you are drawn to. Trust that your own soul knows best what it is you need.

2. Dry your feet and then stand barefoot upon the earth. Look down at your feet and visualise the chakra in the sole of your foot spinning and opening and energetically connecting into the energy of the Earth. Really allow yourself to feel this connection.

3. Shake the tension out of your hands, loosen your shoulders and give your body a good energetic shake out.

4. Now raise your arms up to the sky and draw that energy of the sun and the moon and the stars down in through your hands and the top of your head.

5. Draw the energy of the earth up through your feet and your base chakra. Feel strong like a well grounded tree, roots deep down into the earth.

6. Have all of the energy meet at your heart; healing, balancing and empowering your entire body.

7. Finally, nurture and nourish your foot chakras and help anchor that grounded energy by rubbing a few drops of pure sesame oil into the soles of your feet. Sesame oil also helps us open to abundance and to be comfortable with flow and positive manifestation.

Working with your foot chakras is a simple act of self nurture than can give lasting benefits and improved well-being on all levels.
