The chakras are 7 energy whirlpools that vibrate at various points between the base of your spinal column and the top of your head. Each chakra has unique spiritual properties and focusing on any one will elevate the functioning of all. However, there are times that it is beneficial to focus on a specific chakra with alignment to the unique challenges being presented by life. Following are some examples to enhance your spiritual experience by engaging your chakras:
- Food: there are many ways to engage food as chakra therapy. Some examples: eat root vegetables to address to the insecurities that may be experienced in one’s physical safety; consume strawberries to balance your sacral chakra which holds the energy for creative and sensual expression. The way that these foods become therapy is by focusing on the intention as you consume them.
- Sleep: as bedtime approaches, you can have a short dialogue with a specific chakra. An example could be to focus on the heart chakra and invite the heart to use sleep as a period of healing instead of hiding from the pains of life. This practice is amplified by sleeping with a green stone on or near the heart so that the intention is being held safely by it as you release consciousness.
- Exercise: to focus on bringing more power into your life, an individual may focus on running from their solar plexus, located at the midpoint between the pubic bone and the belly button. Imagining a yellow surge of energy that allows the runners stride to lead from this location of the body. Through this visual, both the quality and color of this chakra is engaged. Another way to engage this practice is through intention while dancing. If there is a need to elevate sensual energy in your life, you can dance with a heightened awareness of moving through the hips and pelvis combined with visualizing the color orange in this location.
