An excerpt from my "Basics of Crystal Therapy" workbook. The foot chakra is an often overlooked, but in my opinion, critical chakra. This chakra is split between the two feet, located at the ball/arch of each foot. Even though it is located on each foot, it is still considered just one chakra, as each is part of the whole. They are always linked, whether your feet are together or separated. Traditionally, the base, or root chakra, is known to be the grounding chakra, and is typically focused on for connecting with the earth’s energies. This chakra also slows down and transforms divine energy so that is can pass into the earth effortlessly. But it is not a direct connection to the earth.
