The gift of Toe Reading is helping a soul see that it is always whole and always honored. The body, in the wonder of its creation, holds our stories and ‘our issues in its tissues’. Toe Reading is for everyone, even when the physical toes are absent- from birth, illness, or injury. There are times we all feel like we are limited physically, mentally, or emotionally- and Toe Reading, through its language and energy of LOVE, reminds us that we are always whole. A Toe Reader helps the soul- stories be expressed, and they hold space as any changes are acknowledged and embraced. Through their caring observance and questions, the reader helps shift the perception of limitations into the awareness that YOU are UNLIMITED!
A soul capsule can be created to honor the essence, wholeness, and dreams of a person. As I reflected on how to best describe a soul capsule, the image and metaphor of a cocoon came to mind. Consider the life of a caterpillar. It goes along inch by inch and day by day living what it considers a fairly normal life. Some days are easier than others, but there seem to be enough leaves to eat and twigs to climb. Occasionally life feels like its all uphill, but the caterpillar inches along. One day the winds of change blow in and life no longer feels the same. Whether it arrives slowly or comes in an instant, change enters the caterpillar’s life. The caterpillar wraps itself in a cocoon and begins the inward journey. Surrounded by darkness, confusion, and uncertainty, the caterpillar barely recognizes itself.
Within the cocoon is the caterpillar in all of its wholeness—who it was, who it is, and the seed of light for who it will become. The quest is for the caterpillar to see and understand that it is always whole, even in the midst of change. It must find the will to emerge, changed, yet returning to fullness…whole.
Sometimes the nudge to emerge is helped by an outside source, but wiggling and stretching and opening must come from inside. With every move forward, light appears. The more the caterpillar opens and tries, the more light appears. Then in perfect time, when the changes are embraced and transformed, a butterfly emerges. As it basks in the light that is ever-present and in the light of its being, the butterfly’s wings dry. The caterpillar is free to be who it was always born to be; a butterfly! The caterpillar can fly!!!
Soul capsules can be created from Toe Reading or Life Coaching sessions. They would help in honoring change and transformation personally, as well as honoring lost loved ones, or lost dreams that can be hard to let go of. It is a way of saying this mattered, this person or situation is SEEN and honored or blessed before moving forward in a new way.
Similar to a time capsule, an actual box or container can be decorated and personalized. Others may prefer to write a story about their life’s journey or record an audio or video. A beautiful way to honor a soul’s journey would be to create and hold a ceremony for the soul and their capsule. The soul capsule can include favorite photos of special times and activities or those that capture the feeling of being at one’s best and the most themselves. Handwritten stories, notes, or poems can be placed into the capsule. Memorabilia or keepsakes could be included. It is really up to the creativity of the coach and the client. It can also include expressions of the hard emotions, such as anger, grief, sadness, regret, vulnerability, feeling ‘less than’, and change. This is simply the journey of a soul, even during times of change. Be sure to add the new dreams and the unlimited life goals as they grow, stretch, and return to fullness with wings to fly…Soar!!! Shine!
