Walk Barefoot (The Financial Athlete #135)

“Walk barefoot,” advised my Balinese healer, who I had visited for back pain relief. His English girlfriend was translating Indonesian into English. “Gently press your toes into the earth with each step. Your toes are like the prongs of a power cord that plug into an electrical socket. Be sure to plug the full length of your toes into the earth.”

In circles I walked barefoot, bringing consciousness into my toes.

“How does it feel?”

I did not have to stop to reflect upon the sensation. “I feel more integrated with the earth.”

“Good. Now stand still. Relax. Again, gently press your toes into the earth.”

“How does it feel?” he asked again.

“I feel a more solid foundation.”

He nodded his head, “The whole body is integrated. Proper body alignment begins with the foundation of the body — the feet — which will help support the spine.”

In the same vein, align investing with your core values, which is your foundation. The integration begins with bringing awareness of your core values with every investment opportunity.

“My feet ain’t got nothing to do with my nickname, but when folks get it in their heads that a feller’s got big feet, soon the feet start looking big.” – Satchel Paige
