Often in esoteric pursuits, many believe that working with energies and setting intention extends mostly to others and the greater good.
Add to this society’s mistaken belief that taking care of yourself is vain and worse, selfish.
Are we supposed to give, and give and give of ourselves, leaving the self in the dust? The answer is no.
Because of these aforementioned modalities of thought, we’re left feeling drained and unbalanced. We must reverse the thinking that taking care of the self is a negative thing. How can we help others when we haven’t helped ourselves? Our personal energy matters just as much.
One of the ways to restore balance is to do things that feel good to us. Many call this self care.
Take this a step further, though. Everything on our beautiful Earth is made of energy. Again, that includes humans! We have seven chakras, or energy points, throughout our bodies from head to toe. Each chakra has a color, auditory vibration mantra and crystal energy associated with it to restore and balance them. The mantras in Sanskrit are called bija, or seeds. They, and some examples of crystal correspondences for each chakra, are as follows:
💟 CROWN CHAKRA
💜 THIRD EYE CHAKRA
💙 THROAT CHAKRA
Crystal: Chrysocolla, Blue Lace Agate
💚 HEART CHAKRA
Crystal: Green Jade, Rose Quartz
💛 SOLAR PLEXUS CHAKRA
Crystal: Sunstone, Citrine
🧡 SACRAL CHAKRA
Crystal: Carnelian, Tiger’s Eye
❤️ ROOT CHAKRA
Crystal: Red Jasper
Each of these mantras activates the chakra they correspond to, restores their power and balances them. You can chant or silently meditate on them. The crystals bolster these energies.
This weekend, Dear Ones, try a chakra balancing meditation to restore your energy. Take note of how you feel before and after.
And so it is. ✨
