Four Corners – Where Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah Meet

28 Aug
While taking a year to travel the US with our three son in an RV, we recently stopped at the Four Corners.  The only location in America where 4 states (Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado and Utah) come together at one point.

Foot dangling over the Blue Hole

The famous Blue Hole, a geological phenomenon. The natural, bell-shaped pool is 80 feet deep and has astonishing clarity and a constant water temperature of 64 degrees.

The excellent diving here has made Santa Rosa, NM into a scuba diving mecca.

Nice shot!

Beth writes, “You arrived flat-footed, without arches, a preference for being bare, to feel the earth on the sole. Translating to yoga practice years later, when I found you, feet, my foundation, my starting point. I have squeezed you into 4” stilettos, walked city blocks in slanted wedges, forcing my feet into odd shapes like that of foot binding. (Still can’t give up those heels.) Danced all night on the balls of my feet (starting at 15 except chuck taylors were my preference then), only to feel plantar fascia bind like glue seizing into a taut rope. (Yet, I still will dance all night.) Then at 6 am, I promise to stretch you. Open all the points of my body in activating you.

You have walked 32-years flat, and now as I feel the long-awaited arch happen. I know your importance. You are the gateway, the ground of the first chakra, connecting to all points of the body, a portal sits at the center…and from here we can rise, from here we can dance, and align our beings to be in gravity.

I’ve worked my way down to your feet, to feel the ground again. It happened as I began to lift my arches, to lift my toes, to begin to use my feet and make them strong. It was my teacher Timo who said, “lift your toes” and I thought, “hmmm, okay, I can do this.” Little did I know the difficulty of lifting ones’ toes in every standing pose. From there, transformation happened, not just in the physical sense, as this is not what it is about.

The feet our are dharma, we can learn so much from the feet. If they are tight in one particular area of the foot, chances are we have a blockage somewhere in the body. My feet have been so tight and albeit weak, which has led to tightness in my breathing and a sign that my parasympathetic nervous system has been compromised. Also, the left center of my foot is tight and sore on both feet. This relates to the kidneys and my kidney qi is depleted from various life circumstances and I have had lower left back pain for some time off and on. When my kidney started to detox, this exact spot of my foot began to ache as it released. If I practice broken toe pose each day and lift my toes during self-practice, grounding into the big toe mound and heels, I can open other areas of my body.

From re-starting at the feet, I began to breathe again in a way that was expansive.  My left kidney released a little more. Rising into sirasana came with less effort, as I extended my pinky toe and used my feet and I felt deeper openings and strength in my core.  More importantly, I felt more in my body and grounded. Today, my feet are my dharma and they have taught me to be in my body, when so I often I flit in vata-dragonfly land.
It’s where it’s at-the feet-we work from the feet up. It’s where we start as Reiki practitioners. We ground from the feet before we begin to open and heal the other chakras and even the fashion junkie, I can be, starts her outfits with her shoes first.”

Very interesting subject matter and much to learn about it!

My day started off with a Peanut Butter Cup Smoothie and a relaxing time at the pool reading my new Oprah magazine.  (Yesterday was the mailbox trifecta of awesomeness. I received a True Blood Netflix DVD, O Magazine and my new yoga top and Havanas flip-flops from Athleta!).  So you could say my day was a success.

Made it to the pool before the rain came!”

Sounds like and looks like a very nice and relaxing day!  Great photo! :)
