There’s a reason I only take students who understand that yes, I will teach you my system for healing the chakras, but I will not tout my system as the only one or the right one. My system is mine, and if it makes yours accessible to you, then there’s the magic.
So given that, let me say that in forty years of working with my own, and the chakra systems of many others, I have never once seen a completely blocked chakra. If a chakra were truly blocked, that creature would no longer be incarnate.
Let’s remember first that any incarnate being has an energy system. All. No exceptions. Here is where chakras come from: When a being incarnates, there is a burst of brilliant light. I’d call that The Divine Spark. It animates all your systems. If you’ll view that burst of light, that Divine Spark, through a prism, you will see the eight major chakras.
The most vital point about the chakra system is that it is a system. It’s how they work together that matters.
For the next few days, we will be exploring all sorts of healing modalities for each chakra. Understand that what might heal my first chakra might not even touch yours — we’re different, Beloved, and our healing methods will likely be different as a result.
The First Red Root Chakra comes with the Grace of Life, and teaches each of us how to navigate the world in a body. Ever heard anyone say they wished theirs had come with a manual? Well, it does. The name of the manual is Life Experience.
Given that, consider these healing modalities as possibilities:
Aromatherapy because the affiliated sense is smell
Being outdoors in nature
Eating protein & root vegetables
Lying on the ground
Sleeping enough but not too much
Yoga poses that emphasize a firm base
In addition, there are simple things you can do: wear red, drink red-charged water, make sure you can see red wherever you spend most of your time, eat red foods, do red breathing work, visualize red. I could go on and on.
The point is to find methods that work for you, and use them. For example, I might, because words speak so strongly to me, keep a list of the different color names used for red where I could see and add to it.
So often we turn lists like this one into a to-do list. Please, don’t. Instead, sit quietly, look at each item on the list, and tune in to your body. Which one or two give you the most energetic feeling. Do those.
And always, whenever you are working on one specific chakra, make sure you check the ones above and below it. If you’re focused on Red Root, check on Rose Thymus, and Orange Sacral.
Managing your own energy system is a vital skill, one that few of us are taught, and when you learn how to do it, life, I promise you, gets a whole lot easier.
