So what did I do you ask? Well first I set the stage in my Retreat Area [that being my bathroom] by making the light dim, making sure that I would be undisturbed for the next 30 minutes or so, grabbed my self a bottle of water to stay well hydrated, turned on some soothing, meditative music and jumped into the tub which was filling with hot water. Upon throwing in The Root Chakra Bath Bomb I began to immediately enjoy the vibrant color Red which was dissolving, taking over the water and curling up around me.
I then opened up with a Prayer and Conversation about Grounding, which is the general purpose of The Root Chakra and at the time I didn't notice it but afterwards, looking back, it was almost funny how my words and thoughts quickly seemed to move into Connection between my Self [on all levels], Heaven and Earth. As I closed my eyes and focused my attention on The Root Chakra, my words and thoughts were in an effortless flow and the most amazing part was that IT was ALL about Me and no one else! I have a nature that tends to lean towards thinking about and doing for others quite often [most of the time] and at times find that I've gotten too far away from a separateness which is needed for Me, for My Self. One where I engage and embrace in My Own personal work of healing and guidance and [re]Grounding, Connecting back to Center and The Divine.
Now don't get me wrong, I have daily Prayer and Conversation as well as learning time which definitely feeds me, but much of my day is spent in thoughts of where to go next with a session and what to teach based upon either my recent insights or study time. Formulating thoughts and words, ideas. Creating possible scenarios to one day pass along to others to help guide them to THEIR Truth, happiness and internal joy while helping to guide them past the negative vibrations of their past history, life story and/or events that are keeping them hostage, creating the limitations that they so desperately want and need to let go of.
So that having been said, you can see why I was so excitedly surprised and intrigued with the fact that going inward 'Immediately' sparked interest and insights that were strictly ALL about Me and no one else. It truly was a magical time and much needed. One that I enjoyed all too well!
Again, yes, the words and thoughts just seemed to flow as though they had been there, waiting [im]patiently for a very, very long while and they too were excited to show them self to me. To teach me something. Even after I believed I was complete and closed with a Blessing, as I lay there in the beauty of the Red, more began to come in and fill me so I simply opened up to receive whatever it was. I was, in essence, Channeling to my Self as I often do for and about others and again it was a very wonderful experience.
There were some unanswered questions that I had been carrying around with me for a while, that were brought to light and a warm feeling of closure and completion was felt during what definitely turned out to be a healing and guidance session with and for Me :) Although I do spend time with my Self regularly, I want to say that I believe the combination of all things present, to include The Root Chakra Bath Bomb, made this particular time extra special. I will be moving on to The Sacral Chakra Bath Bomb next and will definitely be returning to share my experience with it as well. I believe the more familiar I become with The Bath Bombs, the better I will know and understand their intervention and guidance with my Self time and insights gained. [I also have a feeling that Shannon immersed Reiki Energy into this set, but we'll have to see what her comments on this might be.]
Before closing I would like to offer just a quick bit of background on The Root Chakra for those of you that are uncertain or unfamiliar with this Ancient Practice.
The reason for the color Red to be immersed in this Bath Bomb is that Red is the color associated with The Root Chakra. So not only are you getting the foundational balance of The Root Chakra it self, you are also receiving Color Therapy to help the aligning and grounding to take place. The reason that I started my opening Prayer and Conversation with one about Grounding and Connection is that this happens to be the general purpose and energy of The Root Chakra. It is the foundation which Grounds Us, Connects Us. It is the 'I AM' Chakra, as it relates to Emotional and Survival Issues such as Our Independence [in and on many levels].
RED ... Why Red? Red relates to Self Awareness. It is the area of survival and stability and represents your place on this Earth. The color Red provides the Power from the Earth and gives energy on all levels of our being. It Connects Us to our Physical Body. Everything that is to be commenced needs the life vitality of Red.
If you are interested or perhaps intrigued now and would enjoy more details and insights on The Root Chakra or the entire Chakra System and it's associated Colors, please feel free to contact me and I would be happy to guide you through it as this energy and practice is definitely something I believe in and use when custom designing private sessions and/or healing programs for my clients.
