How to Cleanse your Chakras
If you are feeling out of sorts, but just can’t put your finger on what is happening to you, it may be wise to consider a blockage in your seven main chakras. Located from the base of your spine to the top of your head, each of these chakras plays a vital role in your well-being.
If they are blocked, it is the same as having an electrical charge malfunctioning in your body. Each power point functions as a control center for a particular vibration. The color of each chakra aligns with a color of the rainbow so we begin to understand each chakra has a relationship with light.
Red is the color of the root chakra. The purpose of the root chakra, located at the base of the spine, is to keep us grounded to the earth. If this chakra is partially blocked or misaligned, the symptoms are shown as the inability to remain relaxed and in the moment.
Cleansing requires direct contact with the earth. Adorn yourself in something red. Meditate with the vibration of the “I am” while holding a red stone such as red jasper or ruby.
Orange is the color of the sacral chakra located in the pelvic region. This area controls our creativity. If it is blocked or misaligned, we lose interest in sex as well as not being in touch with our creative side.
Cleansing requires being in or near a body of water to open up the flow. Take a bath or go swimming. Wear something orange and eat orange foods such as carrots, oranges, mangos, or melons. Hold a carnelian stone and meditate using the vibration of “yam”.
Solar Plexus Chakra
Yellow is the color of our will center located at the waist. If blocked or misaligned, we have trouble knowing what we want or procrastinate on getting things done. We can lack the “guts” to stand up for what we want.
Cleansing requires sunlight or being near firelight. Sit out in the sun or build a fire. Put on something yellow and eat yellow foods such as squash, yellow peppers, pineapple, or bananas. Meditate with yellow jade and the vibration of “ram”.
Green is the color of the heart located in our chest. It is where our love and compassion reside. If blocked or misaligned we can feel hurt, lonely, and isolated. Love is meant to be given and received so volunteer for a charity, or help a friend in need.
Cleansing requires fresh air with the wind on our face or in our hair. Take a drive with the window down, go to the beach, or take a boat ride. Wear something green and eat green foods such as lettuce, spinach, green beans, and avocado. Meditate with the stone adventurine as you focus on the vibration of “yum”.
Blue is the color of your throat chakra. It is where you store and speak your truth. If blocked or misaligned, you may experience difficulty in being honest, afraid to speak up, or fearing your truth won’t be heard.
Cleansing requires being under blue skies outdoors in an open space. Taking a blanket, laying on it under blue skies, while holding a sodalite stone, meditate to the vibration of “ham”. Eat blue foods including blueberries, currants, and kelp.
Third Eye Chakra
Indigo is the color of the third eye. It is located in the middle of the forehead. If blocked or misaligned, your insight may not be coming to you clearly. You miss the subtle implications in a situation, or your dreams may be muddled.
Cleansing requires meditating in the light. Sit outside or near a window facing the sun wearing something dark blue and holding a piece of fluorite to the vibration of “sham”. Eat foods such as blackberries, grapes, and purple kale or cabbage.
The Crown Chakra
Violet is the color of the crown chakra. It is located on the top of your head and connects you to the spiritual divine. If blocked or misaligned, you feel disconnected to your higher self and the wisdom that resides there.
Cleansing requires that you meditate on the universal vibration “om” while wearing an article of violet in a quiet place while holding a piece of clear quartz.
