Eating Red Grounds Root Chakra

When we are feeling ungrounded, it is the best time to look at what foods will help balance our Root Chakra.  Author Deanna M. Minich, Ph.D.,C.N. shares a great deal of knowledge about the healing vibrations of food in her book Chakra Foods for Optimum Health.  She points out that root vegetables transfer grounding energy to our body through the Root Chakra.  Much like the conditions they grow in, root vegetables help us to nestle into our internal, lower core and become connected to earth’s vibration.

Even though the author points out that root vegetables and red meat are the most effective grounding foods, red fruits and vegetables also provide the vibrational rate needed to restore our ability to ground.   What is so amazing is that this vibration can be absorbed visually by both looking at red fruits and vegetables as well as physically consuming them.

Remember when our mothers said to us as children, “Eat Your Vegetables”.  The author writes in her book, “If you are struggling with being grounded and feeling safe, eating foods to support these functions are beneficial.”  She suggests that we incorporate Root Chakra grounding foods at every meal so that our daily, earthly existence feels complete.Vegetables/Fruits Ground Root Chakra

Healing - Sitting In Anger

Anger is a response of fear, self-absorption, and self-inflation which can lead to indifference and hatred.  Most often anger is an overreaction to a situation.  There is nothing wrong with anger, but one needs to be able to manage anger in a healthy way.  How do we use visualization to work with our anger?  Dr. Alberto Villoldo, Ph.D. writes in his book, The Four Insights-Wisdom, Power, and Grace of the Earthkeepers,  ”As a form of a prayer, visualization…uses the language of images”.

Healing-Sitting Through Anger

To relieve anger, author Gerald Epstein, M.D. recommends the following Sitting Through Anger Exercise in his book Healing Visualizations Creating Health Through Imagery:

Healing - Sitting Through Anger

1.  Close your eyes.  Breathe out three times.

2.  See yourself sitting inside your anger.  Look at it.  Decide how you want to release and dispose of it.

3.  Breathe out once, and after ridding yourself of anger, place in the newly vacated space an opposite image and visualize sitting in the center of a beautiful lotus flower.

4.  You might want to visualize yourself floating or sitting in the center of clouds.

5.  Remember it is best to find your own images coming directly from your own experience.

6.  Then open your eyes, knowing that the anger is gone.

Bridge To Healing-Your Core Color

Bridge to Healing - Your Core Color

It is so fascinating to think about the vibrational energy of color.  In the book Cell-Level Healing-The Bridge from Soul to Cell, author Joyce Whitely Hawkes, Ph.D., shares about our Core Color.  She describes it as a beacon of inner light that is one of the sources of healing for our cells, translating the frequency vibrations of health to the body.  The author illustrates some Core Colors shown below and possible corresponding attributes.  You may also find other interpretations regarding the healing qualities of the different colors.

Bridge to Healing - Your Core Colors

I have included several methods that the author suggests to use when wanting to identify your Core Color.  It might be helpful to know that The Core Color is perceived as a cylinder of light above the full length of the spine.

Bridge to Healing - Your Core ColorIdentifying Bridge To Healing

•  During meditation, you may see a bright color inside your head.  Deepen your meditation to focus on the inside of your body in the area just above the spine.  If the color persists, you can work with is as your Core Color.

•  At times, you may be flooded with compassion, clarity, or insight, or all of these qualities at once.  If there is an accompanying color, the quality and the color will be linked vibrationally.

•  Someone else may become aware of your Core Color (for example during a healing session).  When you are in touch with your true Core Color, you will feel joyful, peaceful, and full of energy.

•  You may want to construct your own chart and notice your personal relationship with color.

Mudras for Back Pain

In Gertrud Hirschi’s book, Mudras-Yoga in Your Hands, she shares the right & left hand Mudras for back pain.  These Mudras are effective when engaged in an activity that has strained the back such as garden work, lifting, cleaning or hours on the computer.  In energy healing, we know that backaches can also be from continuous mental strain, fear,  heavy meals, too little sleep, lack of or over exercising.

If you are experiencing back pain, I invite you to try the following Mudras:

Back Mudras can be more effective when practicing in the back position shown below:

Lady of Liberty

Lady Of LobertyLady of Liberty

Lady of Liberty and Mother of Freedom and Justice to All,

who offers her welcome to whomever may call,
be them rich, poor or oppressed,

she stands watch in her robes, so dressed,
a gift of friendship from France to the U.S.

dedicated in 1886 and designated a National Monument in 1924,
an historic landmark to its very core.

she passed her torch from Bedloe’s to the renamed Liberty Island,
never frowned, but kept on smiling.

she raised her torch of eternal light and freedom upwards toward the heavenly clouds,
evoking cries and tears of emotion from the visiting crowds.

so, thanks to the great genius of Bartholdi and Eiffel, our symbol
of freedom still stands by the bay,

to signal all passing through, that liberty, justice and the
pursuit of happiness and opportunity in America is here to stay,
in the good ole U.S.A.
