Meditation and Affirmation is another good way work with your chakras. One form of meditation is either laying some or sitting in lotus position on the floor, imagine a beam of light coming through the top of your head and coming out from the bottom. Imagine a red ball spinning at the base of your spine going through your body in that area. Imagine this spinning white light that is coming through your moving this ball, making it spin at a healthy speed (you’ll know) and with this white light, healing it. Making it redder and redder, spinning until is bright and vibrant.

An affirmation that can be used for your root is ” I am concerned with the energy of Mother Earth. My body, mind and spirit are grounded, centered and purified.”

Color Therapy is another option. Wearing red. Super easy and quick. Red Jewelry, Red clothes, being surrounded with red decor…RED!

Earthing is also wonderful. Take your shows off and walk in your yard or in a park. Barefoot and connecting to Mother Earth. This is a beautiful way to get grounded. If you are going to do some gardening, take those shoes off and enjoy the wonderful energy that Mother Earth is constantly providing.

Note: If you feel that you are having physical or mental anxiety or issues, please seek professional help. The use of crystals, meditation or affirmation are supposed to be complementary as is complement traditional medicine or therapy not replace it.

  1. Moving does funny things to your body. I find my shoulders hiked up to my ears, my digestion completely out of whack and my entire frame of mind to be somewhat spacey and disorganized. Along with the randomly placed boxes and items in our new house, I too am still looking for my rightful ‘place.’ If you study chakras at all, you’ll know that my root chakra needs both balancing and cleansing.
