How Chakra's Talk to Us

As we continue to meet our Intentions for 2024, I wanted to introduce various Holistic self-care techniques with scientific background information to the tribe.  So, for February we will leap into understanding our Chakras and how they can play a part in our feelings, actions, and responses (Judith, 2014). 


Fun Facts:


·      There are 7 main Chakras:  Root, Sacral, Solar Plexus, Heart, Throat, Third Eye and Crown

·      Each Chakra is represented by a color: Root/Red; Sacral/Orange; Solar Plexus/Yellow; Heart/Green; Throat/Teal Blue; Third Eye/Blue; and Crown/Purple

·      The concepts of Chakras are as ancient as the universe and are studied by many cultures.

·      The concepts of Chakras is not a religion.

·      Understanding the concepts of Chakras is the science of the body, spirit, and mind connections.

·      Chakras connect our physical and psychological aspects. (i.e.: Root Chakra represents one’s sense of identity, energy, stability, comfort, safety, self-preservation)

·      One’s Chakra flow of energy can change based on experiences and intentions. (i.e.: open/balanced; closed/imbalanced)

·      The Chakra system is a map of the human biocomputer: a diagram of how and where the physical body and psychological body interact.



Characteristics of the Root Chakra:

·      Balanced/Open:  ability to relax and have stillness; feeling of safety, security, stability, vitality, prosperity, right livelihood, good health, well grounded, comfortable in one’s body, sense of trust in the world.

·      Unbalanced/Closed:  Obesity, material fixation, greed, sluggish, fear of change, disconnected from one’s body, fearful, anxious, restless, can’t settle, poor focus & discipline, addictions, financial difficulty, poor boundaries, chronic disorganization, experienced traumas + abuse.


Self-Care/Healing Techniques (Strategies) for closed/imbalanced Root Chakra:

·      Reconnect with the body; physical activities (yoga, dance, swim); go camping; have a massage or some form of bodywork that is gentle and non-intrusive; grounding exercises outside (gardening, walk outside); reclaim right to be here with verbal affirmations (I choose to be present and fill it with fun, joy and light); lovingly prepare food for yourself; clean your house, clean out a closet or drawer, tidy up your space; to laugh and do something for self just because you want to.


In Essence, “When all your energies are brought into harmony, your body flourishes.  And when your body flourishes, your soul has a soil in which it can blossom in the world.” (Eden, Feinstein 2008)
