Chakra Balancing Program-Day 1, Root Chakra

LETS begin! ( This begins day one of the Spirals of Light 7 day Chakra Balancing Program please see blog post Overview for information on how to begin this porgram)
Day One: The Root Chakra – 1st Chakra. Use Chakra Spray “Power & Vitality” if you have it.

Root Chakra Spray

This Chakra is known as the Root, Base or 1st Chakra. It is referred to as Muladhara in Sanskrit. Color: Red or Black. Stones used in this spray are Garnet and Hematite. Essential oils used in this spray are, Cedarwood, Patchouli, Orange.
The Root Chakra is located at the base of the spine. This energy center is the place of physical strength, energy and vitality. This is where we feel balanced as we walk on the Earth. It is the place of survival, and how we are connected and grounded to the Earth.
The Root Chakra has to do with our connection to the material plane. The Root Chakra is where your feelings about money and prosperity come from. We need to have a good foundation in which to move from. Just like any building or physical structure, we too need to be firmly rooted in our foundation. The Root Chakra is the base on which the rest of the chakras are built upon.
If you have a need to feel your connection to the material plane, have issues related to survival in the physical world or need energy and vitality these are Root Chakra issues.
 People who have trouble focusing on the task at hand, studying or paying attention may have a blocked 1st Chakra. The physical connection to this Chakra: Kidneys, blood, legs, feet, bones.
If you have the 1st Chakra Spray use it to help keep you grounded and focused.
Begin by finding a quiet comfortable place where you won’t be disturbed. You can light a candle to set sacred space. Listening to some quiet, soothing music can also help set the tone for your Chakra Balancing session. Close your eyes and spray the Chakra Spray at the top your head several times, allowing the mist to gently flow down your body. Breathe in the pure aroma of the mist. Now, still with your eyes closed, visualize the color red. See before you a beautiful ball of brilliant red light. Hold the color red in your mind’s eye for several minutes. Now, see this red light flowing all around your body. You are being bathed in bright, deep red vibration of light. Open your eyes and check in with yourself. How do you feel?
Now mist yourself again with the spray, this time direct the mist to your feet and legs. As you do this, visualize strong roots growing out from your feet into the ground beneath you. Imagine yourself as a tall tree, securely planted on Mother Earth. Stay with this visualization for several minutes.
Now, try walking around the room or space you are in. Feel your feet as you take each step. Put your attention only on your feet as you move around the room. Do this for several minutes as you feel yourself fully in the present moment. This is a wonderful exercise to come back to throughout the day, when you begin to feel scattered or spacey, just spray yourself with the 1st the Chakra Spray, breathe in and feel your connection to the Earth.
Affirmations of the Day: Say these affirmations while you spray yourself one last time before going on with your day. Remember to take your Root Chakra Spray with you, so you can use it throughout the day. I am centered and grounded. I feel the power in the connection to the ground I walk upon. I am supported in all I do today.
You may want to wear the color red today or keep something red on your desk or altar. Try wearing jewelry  made with Red Garnet or Hemaitie.
Choose to eat foods that are red. Apples or beets would be great choices.
At the end of the day, pick up your journal and write about your experiences focusing on the Root Chakra. Did you feel focused and grounded today? Did you come back to any of the visualizations and what effect did they have on you? Were you able to stay focused as you went about your day? How would you rate your energy level today?
Before going to sleep, spray your bed, pillow and bedroom and breathe in the aroma of the Root Chakra as you sleep
