I want this to be as simple and easy as possible. I know that we instinctively know that we are energetic beings. I am going to approach this straight to the point.
A chakra is shaped like a tornado, with the small part closest to the body.
We are fueled by the flow of energy in and around our bodies
There are many areas in our body that we can tap into to change and charge with visualization
All you need is your imagination and 2 minutes
The root chakra is exactly as it sounds, it sits at your root. If you imagine that you where standing up and there was a pole from the ground into your body. That is your root chakra. See below for placement of Root Chakra
Keeping or repairing the flow of energy in this area will help your skin be healthy. This is where your your feelings of safely live. If you have anxiety issues or the feeling of fight or flight, doing this exercise will help regulate and dissipate those feelings. We will just start with those two. In the big picture this area of the energy system is about how you fit into your tribe/family. People who have issue with lack of support in life or when they where growing up will find help doing this meditation to create a feeling of safety without a secure support system beyond themselves.

Take a few deep breaths to bring yourself to the present and into your body with your mind
Take your mind to where the root chakra is (as if you could sit on it)
Visualize a mini tornado that is red
As you breath in, spin the tornado and picture the color red moving from the tornado, into your body
Exhale and picture the color red expanding throughout your body and a little beyond
Do this 5 times
You may notice different things during this practice. You may feel a sensation of the energy moving, you may feel a little dizzy or a feeling of expanding. It is different for everyone. You may feel nothing at all, that is fine too. Practice this at least once a day to experience a difference. Practice a few times a day if you are feeling weakness in your life around the things that I stated above, such as anxiety, immune or skin problems.
I would love to hear about your experiences and of course feel free to ask any questions. Good luck with your practice.
Mainstream toothpaste is loaded with things that are bad for us. Dyes, artificial sweeteners and fluoride to mention a few things. So, I make my own. It taste great, leaves my teeth and mouth feeling great. There are so many recipes you can try on line. I make mine with baking soda, salt, peppermint essential oil, coconut oil and redmond clay. If you make your own, what's in yours?
Here is a recipe that I use, I am not good with measuring, so as you make it use your intuition and taste to make it right for you.
2 tablespoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 tablespoon Redmonds (bentonite) clay (I order this on line)
4 drops peppermint essential oil
mix it all together and keep in a closed glass container. I do not keep it in the fridge and have no issue with it going rancid. It is best made with good quality products of course.
