The Throat Chakra represents all that is expressive; your communication center. The Throat center of the chakra system is an energetic center found in the throat area. If its depleted, you may find yourself not able to speak your truth or feeling “shut up”.
Kindness, love, no strings attached…. ah, the Heart Chakra. The Heart center of the chakra system is an energetic center found in the general heart area. If its depleted, you may feel depressed, angry, judgmental and lacking in love towards yourself and others.
When you are moving forward in solid intentions, you are “flexing” your Solar Plexus Chakra. The Solar Plexus center of the chakra system is an energetic center found in the area above the navel and below the diaphragm. If its depleted, you may have low self-esteem, weak or indecisive.
The moments when we take care of ourselves (body, mind and spirit) is the space inside the Sacral Chakra. The Sacral center of the chakra system is an energetic center found in the sacrum and lower belly. If its depleted, you may feel stressed or worn down.
Do you sometimes feel “out of body”, fearful, flighty, insecure? That might be your Root chakra needing a little attention. The Root of the chakra system is an energetic center found at the base of the spine.
We’ve come to the end of the series, but hopefully the beginning of a new care plan for you! The Red Tentseries discussed Grounding, Cleansing, Loving, Creating and the final, Listening.
I hope you are enjoying this Red Tent journey through self-care. There are so many ways to show your self you care. In this post, we will delve a bit into creating. You don’t have to be an arts and crafts to create, it can mean so many things!
If you haven’t been following along until today’s post, the subject has been about our own Red Tent‘s. I’ve talked a little about grounding and cleansing so far. Today we will be delving a bit into LOVING ourselves.
Now that we are grounded and present, the next step is to do some Cleansing. This can mean your body, mind, and even space. I will give you a great cleansing foot bath recipe, but also a few other ideas as well. The recipe does not have to be exact. It may sound strange, but you can find many of these items in your kitchen or a grocery store.
This 5 part series will take you through my own personal red tent of self-care. Though I am guilty of falling off sometimes, I make sure to get back to a routine as much as I can. Some days if I have gone the whole day without some type of conscious self-care, I lay down in my bed for the night, close my eyes and take 3 nice deep, slow breaths. That’s just enough.
