TAKE CARE OF THE FEET

 

Taking care of your feet, massaging them and giving them daily attention, is a way to nourish our soul as well. The feet are in fact a part of the body connected to our interiority, they have a very important symbolic meaning and they need a daily dedication to be able to activate their vital energy. The feet are an often forgotten part of the body. They are far from our eyes and our attention and so it happens that we do not give them the right care.

Yet they are always on the move, they take us from one place to another, they allow us to run, to ride a bicycle, to experience contact with the earth. They have the wonderful task of keeping us in balance, straight, of supporting our entire body structure.
The first tip is to make a nice foot bath with very hot water, peppermint, green tea filter, a few drops of pine oil. This is followed by a treatment with natural foot moisturizer or mint extract and pine oil and then some relaxation, putting your feet in comfortable fabric slippers with completely flat insoles, before going to sleep. Certainly the idea of ‚Äč‚Äčimmersing our feet in hot water is excellent, let's not discard it because it looks like a grandmother's remedy, maybe it will be too but it is still one of the most effective. At least fifteen minutes of foot bath and our feet will be softer and more relaxed. Hot water is essential but we can also add a little peppermint or a filter of green tea or a few drops of pine oil to enhance the effect and make the foot bath even more powerful and soothing. If we don't love aromas too much then we can use coarse salt dissolved in water. The amount of a glass of 250 ml.
After having carefully dried our extremities, we can proceed with the next step, that of massages, which are very useful for reactivating circulation. We take some moisturizing and nourishing cream, with or without attached essences, and spread it on our feet until it is completely absorbed. There are those who do not like the consistency of the cream, so they can use mint extract and pine or rosemary oil, if they like these smells.

CELESTIAL PEACE

There are certain nights I would like to go out. Go to the seashore, lie down and look at the stars. Nothing more peaceful to purify the soul and mind. But anyone who has been in pain so great that they cry to no more tears knows well that at some point there is a kind of quiet melancholy, a kind of calm, almost certain that nothing will happen again.

MOMENTS OF SAMADHI

Happiness can only be in the present moment, regardless of circumstances and turbulent times. Our true nature is love and awareness. We are the ones who can choose whether to hate or love, whether to live in happiness or in perennial dissatisfaction. It all depends on us. We cannot change external circumstances, but we have power over our choices and the attitude with which we respond to external stimuli and facts.
