Foot Chakras - Red

Foot Chakras - Red

This the area that I want to write to you about today. Last week I was telling Tina that my feet were cold and have been cold for a while. She said it is because I am having a hard time moving forward in my life. I thought about that this week.

Our feet represent our path and how they feel is a reflection of how we feel about our path. 

That being said I did some research about the Foot Chakra. There is a chakra at our feet that allows the energy from the Earth to flow through us. When we look at this chakra at our feet we may see gray wisps of energy flowing from it and away from us.

Quartz Crystal

Quartz Crystal Category Silicate Mineral Formula – Silica - (silicon dioxide, SiO2) Crystal Symmetry - Trigonal Color - Transparent, sometimes with cloudy areas. Crystal Habit – 6-sided prism ending in 6-sided pyramid (typical) drusy Streak - white Geography – Brazil, Madagascar, USA, Can be found world wide Moh’s Scale 7-8
Quartz belongs to the trigonalcrystal system. The ideal crystal shape is a six-sided prism terminating with six-sided pyramids at each end. In nature quartz crystals are often twinned, distorted, or so intergrown with adjacent crystals of quartz or other minerals as to only show part of this shape, or to lack obvious crystal faces altogether and appear massive. Well-formed crystals typically form in a 'bed' that has unconstrained growth into a void, but because the crystals must be attached at the other end to a matrix; only one termination pyramid is present.
Virtues
Physical/Emotional Uses - In Crystal healing, clear quartz is used to cleanse, focus and amplify ene…

Questions to ask yourself -

Do you fall apart when someone introduces a new way of being/thinking to you?
Are you a martyr?
To assist with balancing this chakra visualise it at the top of your head, your intention is the chakra is a bright beautiful diamond white, 3 inches in diameter and spinning at a comfortable speed for you. Connect with the Chakra and breathe light into it. Continue to do this until you feel comfortable. Practice this exercise when you are feeling off balance.
