RED SUNDAY–starting with Ergonomically Earthly Energy

Sunday correlates with our ROOT CHAKRA, our energy Base,through which the vibrations travel up along the inside of the spine charging the energy centers where the life force lines cross.

Where the  flow of life  lines cross, the Nadis,  is where the vortices of energy spin–wheels of potential energy and light, aka Chakras.  Energy vibrates at various frequencies  and those frequencies emit different colors. Red is the  slowest of the visible frequencies (Frequency/Tone: 194.18 Hz.(Chakra Platonic) – 396 Hz.(Sofeggio) – 256 Hz (Carrier Wave).

The 7 Chakras are both interdependent and interconnected with each other. They help improve and develop the entire person – both his/her irrational and rational selves, emotional and intuitive sides, his/her aesthetic and pragmatic tendencies, as well as material and spiritual characteristics.

The Root Chakra is most closely associated with our physical body and physical energies. The Hindu depiction of this chakra is the four-petalled lotus. Four is the number related to the four elements, the four directions, and the square. Esoterically, four represents the manifested world and incarnation into this space/time. Four also can represent a strong foundation, solidity, and stability, as in four walls, four legs, etc. Accordingly, the Earth Element is associated with the Root Chakra, as well as the Mineral Kingdom, our sense of smell, and the adrenal glands.

The Root Chakra is the Center of Grounding – our connection to Earth energies. It rules our survival consciousness and represents our deepest unconscious and most primitive/animal self.

It also governs our physical energy and vitality, survival, basic instincts, our feelings of security and safety, familial beliefs, heredity, jobs, money, and our home.  Ergonomically, connecting with the earth and charging your root vortex of energy is standard for maximizing productivity by reducing operator fatigue and discomfort. Also called biotechnology, human engineering, human factors engineering.  If you get my drift……..[Greek ergon, work; see werg- in Indo-European roots + (eco)nomics.]

When the Root Chakra energy is in balance, you are centered, grounded, healthy and vibrant, with unlimited physical energy. You love your body and love to use it and take care of it. You feel secure in your life and display not only good common sense, but you have the ability to easily manifest abundance. If your Root Chakra is out of balance with excessive energy, you may be domineering, greedy, sadistic, and judgmental with strong biased opinions. If this chakra is blocked, you may lack confidence, have low energy, be spacey, be unable to manifest and achieve goals, feel unworthy, unloved, fearful, and insecure. A deficit of energy through the Root Chakra may also manifest as addictions to food, drugs, or material possessions, low immunity, and pain in the lower back, legs, and feet. (This would not be the cause of ALL back pain but just one manifestation of low root chakra manifestation)

SOUNDS:  Tambura-Root Chakra Meditation Music  or one of your own choosing.

FRAGRANCE: Black Pepper Essential Oil diluted 50:50 with carrier oil —Soothing and supportive of muscles after exercise or work out.  The spicy, warm aroma of this oil, in use since the Egyptian mummification era, is stimulating and empowering.  Black pepper is good for those of us who worry constantly. It empowers us to release those negative energies and embrace our own power.  It also vibrates with  energy  to overcome the things that are creating the problems to begin with!  It may also  helps us “digest” unhealthy feelings towards people especially ourselves! This is helpful for those who are self critical and angry or upset with themselves.   Relevant for today is the theory that it promotes balance of the base chakra.

Apply several drops (2-4) on base chakra/vitaflex points or on any sore muscles/Diffuse (especially comfy on a day you want to feel warm and cozy)

CRYSTALS: Red Jasper–a very calming stone that slowly softly stimulates the Root Chakra.   A gentle stone, Red Jasper works slowly but surely and  aids in resolving difficult situations and can be used to ground and stabilize your AURA….

MEDITATION:

The Root Chakra concerns your core needs for survival, security, and livelihood. Without a balanced Root Chakra, it is impossible to achieve balance with the other Chakras.  Feel the VIBES and let that RED ENERGY center calmly twirl!

Visualize the energy as a red jewel in the center of the EARTH vibrating upward into your feet , up your legs and into the base of your body–connect with the VIBES,  power up your ROOT energy field and feel the secure VIBES of Mother Earth deep within,  deep and low, sweet and low.                                                                                              ———–                                                                                                                                           Another opening exercise for the Root Chakra                                                                             is to Let the tips of your thumb and index finger touch.
while concentrating on the Root chakra at the spot                                                                   in between the genitals and the anus.
Chant the sound LAM.                                                                                                                              ———–                                                                                                                                Muladhara Mudra–The Root Chakra is the foundation for the other chakras, with emphasis on survival and grounding.
Mantra: LAM
Element: Earth
Bring your palms together in a prayer at your heart, then interlace the pinky and ring fingers so they fold inside of the palms. Extend the middle fingers so the tips touch and then interlace the thumbs and index fingers so they form rings around each other, with the fingertips touching.

Optional: Flip this mudra upside down and lower your arms slightly, so the middle fingers are pointed downward at your pelvic region

SEE YA LATER THOUGHTS:     Spend as much time as you can today connecting with the Earth’s energy.In addition to the chakra clearing and balancing meditation, there are several ways that you can focus your energy and intention on balancing and clearing the Root Chakra. Connect with Earth Energy: walk outside barefoot, spend time in nature, hug a tree, work in the soil, garden or hug a plant in the grocery store.

Also, enjoy your physical body – engage in physical activity and be present now – experience your body using your physical senses. Eat root vegetables. Immerse your sense of smell in the scents of Balsam fir, patchouli, cedarwood, sandalwood, musk. Surround yourself with gems that vibrate at the same level as the Root Chakra – ruby, garnet, bloodstone, red jasper, black tourmaline, obsidian, and hematite (my personal favorite for grounding!). Know that you are more powerful than you can even begin to imagine, you are Spirit in Matter, and like the Tree, when you are firmly grounded in the Earth, you are free to reach far into the sky.

a WONDERFUL day connected mentally and physically with the earth’s VIBES……….

The Earth
will be safe
when we feel safe
in ourselves.——–Thich Nhat Hanh
