more root chakra work...


All chakras are important, and I work on all of my chakras... but a chakra that's needed ongoing and long-term support is my root chakra, the first chakra, sometimes also called the base chakra.

A few months ago, I wrote a post about some of the current issues impacting my root chakra, and I shared some of things I was doing to give special attention to balancing and boosting this area.

My equilibrium problems still continue (no diagnosis yet, more doc appointments coming up) - and the physical issue is literally like not being fully rooted to the ground. (Hello, root chakra stuff!)

Also, this and other life-happenings require me to do things to keep anxiety in check... which, for me, is very connected to my root chakra.

So the root chakra work continues.

In addition to the things I mentioned in the earlier post - working with crystals, essential oils, meditations, grounding techniques, creativity - I'm amping up the focus on this chakra in other ways.

I'm doing more mantra work. Not only repeating mantras to myself (silently or out loud) but also putting them in writing.

Whether it's combining chakra-and-mantra work with practicing lettering, or simply writing a mantra again and again and again...


I've also been incorporating more color therapy into my day.

Since red is the color associated with the root chakra, I'm connecting to that color more often.

Even something like drinking water from one of my red mugs helps bring in the all-important root chakra energy and vibration.


Balancing a chakra isn't a one-and-done deal. Our chakras are continually shifting and in flux, being influence and impacted not only by things from our past but also in response to what's going on in day-to-day life.

And one chakra doesn't exist in isolation - our chakras influence each other and work together, and an imbalance in one can affect others.

That's why it's so important to do overall chakra work and chakra balancing, even if focusing more intently on one of them for a while.

That's why the goal is energetic - subtle - harmony.

And that's why the work continues... always a process, always in process.
