New Beginnings can help you restart, reset, and open new paths for yourself. They can be scary at first, we are all wired for comfort and sometimes going out from our comfort zone can be painful.
However, Life can be whatever you want it to be, and how you wanted to Feel.
New Beginnings are a chance to try again with something that is not working properly, a fresh start, a reset button.
Our feet can moves us forward with inspiration, breaking any chains from them so that we can move freely again. They signify to us the contact with the Earth, and represent a zone therapy point according to the principles of reflexology. The feet act as self-tuners for the rest of the body: movement of the feet stimulate the whole system.
Everyone can benefit enormoysly from the touch of their feet. Below you will find a recipe for a home based foot oil. You can use it at your own time and space.
