I have a wax melter that I put to frequent use. Because it’s October and time for all things pumpkin, cider, warming spices, etc., I had to turn it on and get my room into that heavenly smelling state. I am all about the fall smells. Seriously. Like obsessed. They are probably my favorite of all the smells. Anywaaaaaaays… I combined a few cubes of pumpkin spice with a few cubes of mulled cider and oh… just nose heaven oh… it’s good.
I worked some more on that painting I started. Added browns for the tree and ground, colored the sky blue, and that little apple red. I added more white to the badgers. and that was all I got done. I’ll finish up the black on the badgers soon, as well as finishing up the Muladhara mandala on the big badger. Productivity, score! Now, I’m not crazy artistic and I haven’t done art seriously in years, so no judgements! Also, I can’t make clouds to save my life. Looks easy. Should be easy. It’s not. I don’t know why I can’t get em, but boy can I not! Practice, practice I hear the winds saying…
I stimulated and balanced the shit out of this chakra! It’s been out of whack for a good while but really focusing on it, acknowledging the things that scare and worry me, finding ways to change or fix or accept what isn’t working for this center has been so helpful. I didn’t realize how big an impact little changes make to this chakra. I imagine it’ll be similar in the other chakras, but it really was surprising how stimulating something as simple as just wearing or thinking about the color red could be. Speaking of stimulating…
Jeezy Creezy!!! Holy sinus, blowing nose, head pain! Now I really can’t tell you what the root cause of this is. Could just be a sickness going around I was unlucky enough to catch. Could be the Tibetan 5 Rites moving some icky things out of me. Could be that I spent an entire week stimulating and nourishing this chakra in so many different ways that it was just shining it’s ruby red light as brightly and lovingly as it could. Unfortunately that’s just too strong and it backed up in me. Or some shit like that. Much more likely it was a combination of all three. Whatever the cause, I’m not digging it.
What I’m most grateful about is the new knowledge I’ve gained from this. Now I have so many tricks up my sleeve for when my root is feeling low and neglected or when it’s all overstimulated and needs to be calmed down. I know how to connect with the Muladhara chakra in so many different ways and forms, and I can incorporate it so easily into my everyday life! Oils, yoga, nature, meditation, animals, food, journaling, flowers, stones, herbs, and so much more; I’ve got an arsenal of tricks now!
