Finding Love After Loss: Follow Your Toes!

This blog, which supports my book, Love After Loss: Writing The Rest of Your Story, is aimed at helping one to discover his or her own truths – to assess one's current reality while releasing attachments to the past in order to pick up the pen and start writing a new chapter in the book of one's life.  

Finding Love After Loss is not simply a romantic designation, but it refers to a wider stance – that of reawakening one's senses to the full wonder of the world. With this newfound sense of appreciation, one can decide which path to follow.

And how do we walk these pathways? On our feet, of course! The feet, and the toes, can actually tell the story of your life, for they store the physical, emotional and spiritual experiences we encounter during our walk on this planet.

Toe reading has its roots in the study of reflexology and is based on the belief that our experiences are recorded by the shape, direction and color of our toes, including our toe nails. It also incorporates principles used in the practice of Ayurvedic medicine, for each toe is assigned an elemental field name: Ether, Air, Fire, Water and Earth. Each of thse elements can be discussed in relationship to one's physical, emotional and spiritual wellness.

Toe reading is not fortune telling or a psychic reading, nor will you be informed or instructed on your life purpose or how to find your soul mate. In other words, toe reading is not toe telling. Toes simply hold your life's energy and, consequently, they have their own stories to tell. The reading is in the powerful questions asked by the Toe Reader that are directed by looking at a client's toes and nails. It is also an alternative way to participate in a coaching experience as your toes can give you clues where you are headed and what you want to accomplish.

Choosing to change your story or write a new chapter can change your life, as well as the shape and direction of your toes!

Here are a couple of toe morsels upon which to nibble!

1. The right foot represents how one presents and interacts with the world, while the left foot is more about how one relates to self and to one's higher power. Consequently, the right foot and left foot toes tell different facets of one's story. The right foot also represents one's past, while the left foot is more about the present and the future.

 2. The toes of people who have led more challenging lives may have more lumps and bumps, which give clues to their emotional and personal experiences. The shape of our feet and toes may change over time and our toe nails are consistently regenerated. This is indicative of the power we hold to change our lives.

3. Flexible feet point to a person who adapts easily and is willing to go with the flow. On the other hand, if the foot is too flexible, this could indicate that there is a tendency towards being too easily manipulated. Conversely, rigid feet often indicate a person who may be harsh, strict, precise or inflexible.
