The Chakras and your health.
Chakras…from the sanskrit for “wheel”, are focal points where the energies contained within the aura are received by the physical body and distributed within it. If anyone of the chakras are not balanced or if the energies are blocked, the basic life force will be slowed down. The individual may feel listless, tired, out of sorts, or depressed. Not only physically will bodily functions be affected so that diseases may manifest, but the mind may also be affected. You may be preoccupied with a negative attitude, fear and doubt. You can help prevent this by practicing Yoga and Tai Chi regularly.
The chakra colours are of the rainbow. Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. The size and brightness of the wheels vary with individual development, physical condition, energy levels, disease, or stress.
Each chakra vibrates or rotates at a different speed. The root chakra rotates at the slowest speed while the crown or seventh chakra rotates at the highest speed. Each chakra is stimulated by its own and complimentary colour.
Earth star chakra.
The Earth star chakra… is not within the actual physical body, but is part of the etheric body and is situated approximately 12 to 18 inches below the soles of the feet. If unbalanced …ungrounded…physical symptoms may include headaches, blurred vision, dizziness and a feeling of not really being on this planet..rather like being a little drunk! Balanced this chakra aligns you with the magnetic core of the earth… connecting and grounding your body with Mother Gaia, especially in a metaphysical way. Its strong properties keep you grounded, strong, protected and secures your aura within the physical world.
The colours associated with this chakra is Black and White. Sandalphon supports this chakra and is the Twin flame of Metatron. Sandalphon has a deep connection with music and musicians and encourages us to appreciate the beauty of sound.
Many of your day to day activities have the potential to unground you. Using computers for long periods of time, driving around in your vehicle… and having no real contact with the earth, can make you very ungrounded. Take regular breaks and walk with nature..this is the quickest way to ground yourself again…or sit in your garden, relax, close your eyes, listen to the birds and just be….!
Spiritual work also may make you ungrounded… so afterwards it is best to make sure that you ground yourself quickly. Our spritzers are very helpful for grounding especially the elements such as Earth and Moldavite, making spiritual grounding easy and may also help those doing psychic work.
As you reconnect to Mother Gaia’s energy, you do two things. You draw from the earth the vibration that enables you to become grounded and discharge into the earth your excess energy.

White Light Meditation.
Relax….Make yourself comfortable either sitting in a reclined position or lying on the floor or bed. Calm your breathing down so that it flows naturally without any effort. By slowing your physical vibration to a slow paced, more natural frequency than you normally use, you ease the tension and pressure that you put on your muscles.
Focus on your breathing and starting with inhaling and exhaling in a balanced rhythm. For example inhale slowly for a count of four ( count, 1 and 2 and 3 and 4 ) and exhale for a beat of five or six. Find a rhythm that suits you and is comfortable. As you practice you can try increasing your own lung capacity. (Yoga breathing exercises are excellent for meditations)
With your first breath ,bring your awarenes into the first chakra and the second breath into the next chakra and so on. Use your visualisation technique to take your awareness all the way down through each chakra ending at your base -root chakra, slowing your vibration down even further and relax. It is an important factor to achieve an awareness and appreciation of a balanced breathing rhythm. Practise makes perfect and gradually it will become second nature.
As you relax and control your breathing, anxiety stops being manufactured by your biochemical processes, so you relieve the burden of any stress or mental suffering. You can now release and clear the stuck energy forces that hang on in the various chakra centres causing discomfort in your body.
Focus on your breathing pattern and when you are comfortable with your rythmn begin to clear your mind of all thoughts by concentrating on your breath.
As you relax , start to visualise a White light some distance above your head . The stronger your visualisation the greater the significance when you bring down the white light. As you get used to seeing the white light visualise it coming down through the crown chakra, slowly, gently flowing, lovingly, like a waterfall into and through each of the chakras, one by one, washing and cleansing as it flows and sparkles.
Repeat this exercise several times allowing the white light to gently heal as it flows through each chakra. As you perform this visualisation the chakra centre will become warm and in due time hot. As it becomes warm you will now know that the chakra centre is completely full with white light and it’s time to move on to the following chakra centre.
Feel and become intuitively aware of this vibration. The Chakra’s are the centre of spiritual power in the body, they are the vibrational centres of our bodies.
Here is a quick, simple meditation for you to enjoy practicing every day.
Sit on the floor cross-legged, or on a chair with your feet firmly on the ground. Close your eyes, breathe slowly and steadily, focus your energy in the following chakras – starting with the Root (base) and say quietly to yourself or out loud:
1 Red ~ I am safe… Breathe .
2 Orange ~ I relate to others with ease… Breathe .
3 Yellow ~ I stand in my unique power… Breathe .
4 Green ~ I practice unconditional love and non-judgement… Breathe.
5 Blue /Turquoise~ I express my truth… Breathe.
6 Indigo blue ~ I see situations exactly as they are… Breathe .
7 Violet ~ I am connected to and cared for by the Divine every day, in all ways… Breathe .
This simple method can last as little as 10 minutes, or as long as you would like to focus on each chakra.
As you say each mantra, visualize the corresponding colour in your mind and body as glowing, pure, bright, and enlarging.
Your energy field is constantly changing which is why it is so important to be aware of the state of all of your chakras. All chakras can be in balance and then something in our daily lives (like city pollution, stress, medication, etc.) can cause a few to close, or turn counter clockwise. It is well worth becoming familiar and in tune with each of these seven main chakras.
