Today we’ll share an exercise to connect to your sacral and root energy centers. Let’s get started!
Find a comfortable spot where you will be able to relax. This could be a chair, on a pillow on the floor, or your favorite place outside. Anywhere where you can relax, focus and not be interrupted is preferred. Settle into your space. Close your eyes. Focus your attention on your breath. Feel as the oxygen flows into your lungs, filling them with life. Envision all of your worries, all of the drama, all of your responsibilities of the day filling those bits of air. As you completely fill yourself with this deep breath hold it for 5-8 seconds. Really putting your attention towards instilling each other air particle with the stress that you intend to release. When you exhale envision all of those worries releasing to the universe where they are transmuted into refreshing air for the natural world.
Continue these breaths 5-10 times or for however long it takes until you feel completely at ease. Once you have entered that space, center your attention on each chakra starting with your root chakra. Feel it pulse, pull, and draw round your etheric being. There will be a moment when you will feel that connection. It is different for everyone. If you don’t feel anything such as a wave of energy flowing in that area. Repeat this for your sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, third eye, and crown chakras. As you move upwards through each chakra pull that energy along as you go. Some areas may feel sluggish, although this isn’t an exercise to clear one’s energy you may want to spend some time doing so. You may feel a slight buzzing around your head from this exercise. Continue to move that energy upwards past the crown for our energy fields extend much further than that. In fact continue to let you energy expand as far out as you desire.
Now bring your attention back to your sacral energy center by picturing your energy flowing down thru your solar plexus down into the center of your pelvis to your sacral energy center. Having felt the flow of energy that exists between your higher-self and source letting that connection flow down to your sacral energy center brings the wisdom those spaces hold from your subconscious to your conscious awareness. Source who is outside of our limited scope of space, time, and physical forms is all knowing. You will want to envision a steady flow of energy between your sacral chakra and your higher-self. This energy flow may be orange, red, yellow or any other color. Does it have a temperature associated with it? Is it warm, cool, or just a color? If you have a question or concern once that flow of energy is consistent feel free to ask your question. Note if there are any changes in the color or how you feel during this time. Does the answer come to you easily? Pay attention to how you feel but if you find yourself becoming too distracted and your mind is wandering then focus back on your breathing and trust that your message will come to you when you are ready. The sacral chakra is one of the areas in which we hold on to trauma so if you find yourself having a very difficult time connecting to this area don’t push it. Come at this exercise gently. Eventually you will find yourself able to explore the truths of this area. What wisdom does your sacral energy center have to share with you? Is it calling for a clearing? If so you can use cleanses through smoke, sound, water, or earth to pull any negative energy from this area. You may also want to seek professional services through therapy or a medical doctor.
We will now use the same meditation to connect to our root chakra. The root chakra may have a more active feeling to it or a very Earthy feeling. The root chakra is the last of our main chakra’s before our energy connects to the Earth. Thus it’s characteristics of grounding is a logical relationship between the root and the Earth. The color associated with the root chakra is red but you may find you feel/see green, brown, gold, black, or any other color. You also may feel a cool, damp, or warm sensation. It really depends on where you are and what your current life experience is. Focusing your attention here may deliver to you messages on your home, your family, your finances, or life purpose. Be open to what these messages may suggest about your current state of energy in relation to these subjects. Breathe into them. Let the knowledge seep into your being. Rest in that connection. Do this exercise for as long as it feels comfortable. Once you feel complete you can picture your energy traveling down into the earth and up into source as a mutual connection builds between your being and the entirety of creation. Take 5 deep breaths and slowly let your consciousness return to this plane. You can always return to this exercise whenever you are desiring connection or guidance.
