Foot reading has been part of Chinese and Indian traditions for over 5,000 years. Feet are actually regarded as a mirror of the body in these cultures.
According to these beliefs, any lumps, calluses or pain in the feet signalize a health problem in your body. That’s how the arches are related to the spine, and a fallen arch is a sign of a back problem. It’s also believed that there’s a close connection between the mind and body and physical problems can often be caused by personality traits.
But, is there any truth in this?
According to Jane Sheehan, a reflexologist, feet reflect everything about people, from their digestive system function to the state of their relationships. Your feet can reveal if you are wild and adventurous, or if you long for stability and harmony in life.
In her book, she explains what your feet say about you:
A big toe that’s longer than the other toes indicates a smart and creative person who always comes up with intelligent solutions to problems. People with longer big toe see things from different perspectives. However, they find it difficult to keep their focus on one thing and often leave their projects unfinished.
People whose big toe is shorter than their second toe are very good at multitasking. They delegate effectively and are very efficient. They have a great charisma which they use to get their ideas accepted.
A longer second toe is an indication of a great leader. These people are dynamic and creative, but they can also be bossy. On the other hand, people whose second toe is shorter put harmony as their priority.
People who have a longer third toe are energetic and imaginative, especially at work. They are perfectionists who can accomplish a lot with determination and energy. However, they are often so dedicated to their goals that they forget about love, family and fun.
On the other hand, people whose third toe is shorter like relaxing and enjoy life to the fullest.
A long, straight fourth toe reveals that the family is the most important thing to these people. When the fourth toe is curled, it indicates an unhappy relationship.
People with long fourth toe are great at listening and nurturing others, but are often unhappy in their family. They also like to help other people solve their problems, which is something they need to do less.
People whose fourth toe is shorter don’t prioritize family and relationships, but focus elsewhere.
A short little toe is a sign of childish behavior. These people avoid responsibilities and are easily bored, which is why they seek fun distractions. But, these people are also fun, easy-going and witty.
In addition, people who can wiggle their little toe separately from their fourth toe are impulsive, adventurous and charming. On the other hand, people who can’t wiggle their little toe prefer routine, predictability and loyalty.
TOES THAT NEATLY GRADUATE IN SIZE
People who have toes that gradually increase in size creating a neat line are methodical, precise and practical. They always complete their tasks. They make great workers and are also good and loyal friend.
These people have solid worker feet and are always on the go. They enjoy keeping themselves busy, which is not always good because they tend to over-exhaust themselves.
People with wide feet should take time to reflect, relax and enjoy their life.
LONG NARROW FEET
People with long narrow arches like being spoiled. They typically avoid the hard work or leave it for someone else to finish it for them. On the other hand, aesthetics is very important to them and they need to be surrounded by beautiful things. Regardless of how much money they make, these people usually have beautiful homes.
High arches indicate independent and self-sufficient people. These people are not the friendliest type, because they normally need time on their own.
On the other hand, people with low or average arches enjoy the company of other people and are rather sociable. They love partying, but they also make sure their friends are having good time as we.
