What do your feet look like? Do you have soft, smooth feet? Or do your feet have thicker layers on the sides and bottom? Do you have callused feet? It is a strange fact, but there really are people who don’t have any calluses under their feet at all! Their feet are smooth and soft all over, with no calluses to be found. Most people, however, do have calluses on the soles of their feet. They can be found on the edges of their heels, to the side of the smallest toe and underneath your large toe, but also in the center of the foot’s sole.
Cracks and fissures
It’s a sign that you don’t care enough about yourself if you don’t take care of your feet. Ask yourself about the status of your self-love. If you let calluses grow, the skin will become too hard and dry and you run the risk of it cracking. Fissures will develop. This is most certainly unpleasant and it’s better to prevent them. You can do that by taking care of your feet (or having it done for you) and taking care of the calluses. Every pedicure knows how and can also give you tips for taking care of your feet yourself.
The meaning of calluses
“Calluses develop by wearing the wrong kind of shoes”. It’s outdated to think that calluses develop from wearing shoes that are too tight or from constant pressure on certain areas of your foot. Foot reflexologists already know this. Calluses have a message for you. It says something about how you feel on the inside. Calluses on your feet indicate that there are emotions and events you haven’t worked through yet. You bottle them up. You carry them with you while you suppress them. It’s possible that you experienced things that you have no memory of. It’s possible that you never learned how to deal with emotions. How do you do that anyway? Release your grief by crying? Release anger by hitting? Chew away frustration? And let go, let go and… let go! Or are there other ways of doing this?
Where are your calluses?
Look at your feet, paying close attention to where the calluses are. Calluses on the side of the big toe indicate that you, at least for now, don’t want to receive any new impressions. You are protecting yourself. Calluses on your toes, like putting protection on them, indicate that you are receiving too many new impressions. It’s like putting a hat on your head, to protect yourself. Calluses on the heel of the foot indicate that someone is very harsh for himself/herself and that that person is insecure. And calluses in the middle of the front part of your sole, formed as a straight line from the front towards the back of the foot, indicate something about the esophagus. It means that you have swallowed too much.
It might seem like a strange suggestion, but as soon as you have a pedicure remove your calluses, you also remove a layer of the trapped emotions. Each time you go to the pedicure, this process continues, even if you remove the calluses at home. You remove a bit of your armor and the emotions can surface. If you are doing the MIR-Method during the same period, you really help yourself to get the emotions out of your system. Your feet won’t need to grow calluses anymore.
Will calluses stay away?
It’s very interesting to see how you’re doing. Do the calluses stay away or do they return? If they return, you still have more to work through. If they stay away, that’s a sign that you’ve grown and have let go of old pain! And that your self-confidence has grown and that you dare to express yourself better! Great news!
How about you? I’m very curious. Where are your calluses? And if you have been doing the MIR-Method, do the calluses stay away when they’ve been removed or do they return? I’d love to hear about it! Please tell me about it below. Thank you!
Personal questions should always be asked of a MIR-Method coach!
