Fall & Winter Chakras: Get In Alignment

As we are nearing the end of our Fall season and moving into the Winter months, our innergy body is undergoing a massive shift. The Autumn season is the season of change. Our mind, body, and spirit shift into a space of returning home to itself. This is why we feel things slow down and we feel the need to rest and rejuvenate ourselves more. As the leaves fall from the trees, it symbolizes to us that it is time to fall back into ourselves. It is time to reground and root ourselves into our new strong foundations. This explains why the Fall is associated with the Root Chakra.

Fall is generally represented by the deep red and orange colors, and fittingly so, these colors are associated with the Root and Sacral Chakras. The Root Chakra is represented by the color red and the Sacral Chakra is represented by the color orange. So as we are shifting from Fall to Winter, the Root and Sacral Chakras are heavily affected, but they also should be heavily focused on to remain in balance. As you notice during this season many people suffer from mental dis-orders more than any other time of the year. The Root Chakra is responsible for our feelings of security, safety, and feeling grounded and balanced. Our Sacral Chakra is known as our "first mind" and is heavily connected to our inner knowing, our "gut feelings," our creative space, the space responsible for "going with the flow and our ability to adapt to change," as well as the space that houses and brings forth new life (both literally and figuratively) Therefore when these innergy centers are out of alignment, you begin to fall out of alignment.

Simple ways to nurture your Root Chakra this Fall are:

  • Eating root vegetables, sweet potatoes, and other comfort foods from nature

  • Spending time in nature

  • Visiting a local gym to work out. Include fitness such as swimming, the sauna, and the stairclimber

  • Baking some of your favorite childhood treats with your family or alone

  • Wearing beautiful shades of the color red

  • Visiting a favorite place from your childhood

  • Visiting family and friends that bring great vibes into your life

  • Watching holiday movies that make you smile from childhood

  • Partaking in a tradition (i.e, every Saturday make your favorite breakfast and watch cartoons)

If we blink about 7 times, we will be approaching winter around the 8th blink. That is how quickly winter is approaching. (How fast did this year fly by?)

We must remember that in the Winter things are cold, which can make us feel cold emotionally. We tend to feel imbalanced and unbalanced during this season. So as we transition from Fall to Winter, we are shifting from lukewarm to cold within our innergy system. The best way to help combat the "Winter Blues" is to keep the body warm and moving, and thus, keep the innergy flowing so that we may continue to flow. Though the first natural response in the wintertime is to stop movement. We lose motivation and typically we don't want to do much outside of resting and eating yummy foods. However, it is important that we keep moving even though we really don't want to. I have found that during the winter months I like to do more comforting workouts. So I tend to lean more into yoga, stretching, rebounding, hula hooping, or even playing a Wii Fitness game with my children. (this will likely soon graduate into a fun interactive exercise game through a virtual reality console) The point is, we must remain active.

Think of going against the grain this season. Because your mind and innergy body will try to protect and comfort you as a means of keeping you safe and happy, you will feel a strong pull towards doing nothing. Most animals hibernate in the winter because of this. We as humans feel an incline towards doing the same. The only issue is our hibernation includes lots of unhealthy foods and less sleep. So we aren't getting the same effects as those animals that hibernate, because they aren't consuming more calories and they are resting more. Consuming more calories and getting less rest for us offsets our innergetic equilibrium, but that's another blog post. So, in order to maintain some balance between your sacral chakra and your mind and emotions, we must do the opposite of what we are wanting to do when laziness begins to strike.

Another great reason to move this Winter is that our Sacral Chakra, (the second innergy center in our body), is located below our navel and centered in the hips. This innergy center focuses on the hips, lower back, bladder, and the health of our kidneys. When the Sacral Chakra is open and becomes a healthy Chakra center it floods with warm orange innergy. We can also store old emotions in the hips, and suppressing these emotions only keeps us unbalanced and unhappy! So, if you are prone to lower backaches or tightness in the hips or fearful of any emotions, then maybe it's time to learn more about Sacral chakra healing. Not just in wintertime, but any time of the year will be greatly beneficial.

Simple ways to nurture the Sacral Chakra this winter:

  • Meditation and yoga

  • Writing and saying affirmations

  • Diffusing essential oils

  • Wearing and/or working with crystals and stones

  • Journaling and deep inner reflection

  • Supplementing your nutrition with intermittent fasting (please consult your doctor before doing so)

  • Wearing orange clothing

  • Consuming herbal teas and orange healthy foods (carrots, oranges, peaches)
