Chakra System Poster
Example of text for
the first chakra from The Chakra System Poster:
Feet, Knees, Legs, Perineum, Coccyx
Energetics and Imbalances: Our bones are the
densest manifestation of our spirit, the last part of our body
to solidify and the last part to decompose. It is in the bones
where blood is produced. This is the blood of our ancestors,
our tribe, and our future children. Bones provide structure,
safety and security for our home, our temple called the body,
while we reside on Mother Earth.
This home requires a caretaker to occupy it, to notice how it feels and what
it needs. If we don't take up residence in all the rooms, we may appear spacey,
aloof-not really here. As a result, we may develop aches and pains in our feet,
knees and legs. Often times, severe neglect or traumas such as assault, rape,
life-threatening illnesses or accidents can cause us to leave our bodies because
it feels too scary to be in them. This can be the start of a cycle of violations
to the body, be they emotional, energetic or physical. Other manifestations can
show up as anxieties, phobias, insomnia, substance abuse, impoverishment or victimization.
These symptoms can also show up if we sever, lose, or have shame around our connection
to our family and roots.
Chakra Balancing: Exercises in nature which activate
feet and legs and demand presence. Good nutrition. Adequate sleep.
Dancing. Claiming one's home in the world. Bodywork which provides
safe exploration of and reintroduction into, body sensations and emotions.
Affirmation: I feel grounding support of the Great
Mother under my feet and unconditional love of God above. I am safe.
