Today’s energy will be especially good for restoration. When we become too focused on the go-go-go, pushing ahead, and accomplishment, it is easy to overlook the essential process of allowing your mind-body-spirit to take a beat, relax, and rebuild your energy levels. This might be as simple as doing a little yoga, taking a walk along the ocean, or using your journal to explore your thoughts and feelings. Energy naturally travels in cycles, and must periodically be cleared or recycled so it can realign with your overall vibrational harmony. Don’t be afraid to take time out for yourself today.
Restoration is an essential part that the root chakra plays in maintaining your energetic balance. Staying in close contact with the ground helps to release energy that is no longer serving you, clearing space for the rest of your energy to flow freely.
Find a space where you feel free to loosen up, to allow yourself to be completely free of the world’s demands. Take a position directly on the ground, either sitting straight up or lying on your back. Gradually increase the depth of your breath, sending the life-giving air throughout all the nooks and crannies of your body. Each inhale feels like you’re stretching your whole being and breathing a sigh of relief on the exhale. As you continue this practice, you may start to feel the energy in your root chakra begin to ease out of your body and into the Earth. Envision your root chakra starting to glow like a fiery ember as your breath feeds it. Each pump of your natural furnace releases the caked-on debris and clears the way for your body to recycle its energy. As you finish this practice, send gratitude to the Earth for its help in cleansing and restoration.
“I clear away the old and make room for the new, restoring my balance and energetic flow.”
