Imagine coming home from a long, very stressful day at work, sitting down and in 15 minutes, your stress, anger, frustration and negative energy from the day is gone.
I recently discovered a foot soaking meditation technique, designed to draw stress and negative energy out of the body, through the feet. It is said to be one of the most powerful and helpful meditation techniques you can do to relax and rid the body of negative energy.
This method is a Sahaja Yoga technique. Sahaja Yoga is a form of meditation developed by Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi in 1970 as a way to bring about evolution through human awareness. According to the Sahaja Yoga website:
“Global unity of mankind can be achieved through this awakening that can occur within each human being, so that transformation takes place within us. By this process a person becomes moral, united, integrated and balanced. “
The Sahaja Yoga foot soaking technique is quite simple. Simply run enough warm water in a bowl or bucket large enough to hold your feet. Mix in a handful of salt. (I prefer Himalayan Salt). The salt is added to represent the Earth element. It cleanses and draws impurities from the body. Put your feet in the bucket, then, relax and meditate as usual, letting the stress and negative energy slip away.
Upon completion of the foot soaking session, throw the water down the toilet and wash out the bucket. It is recommended that this bucket only be used for your foot soaking sessions
