Since this month’s Chakra section focuses on the element of water and the Sacral Chakra, I chose the following meditation/visualization from my own experiences. It’s one I personally use adding color therapy and sea salt.

I like to do this meditation while in the shower imagining that I’m outside in nature underneath a waterfall. I start with sprinkling a generous amount of sea salt over my body to further cleanse my body of anything I consider to be “bad energy” that might have attached itself to me.

(Dr. Jacques de Langre, Ph.D., who wrote the book “Seasalt’s Hidden Powers”, states that naturally and properly sunshine-preserved sea salt is the difference between life and death, health and illness, social sanity and planetary panic and its elements are vital for proper body functions. That natural hand-harvested Celtic ocean salt alone helps to maintain life, neutralizes toxins and detrimental bacteria, and enhances all our organic function. http://curezone.com/foods/salt/book_seasalts_hidden_powers.htm. )

After the sea salt sprinkle, I imagine that the shower water rushing over my body is cleansing it of all negative thoughts and pains along with any “bad energy”. This can be very personalized to whatever you conceive your “bad energy” to be. Let go of everything that troubles you and everything you are done with. Surrender to the waterfall.

In my yoga classes I have a “throw down” asana flow where I suggest letting go of anything you’re done with or no longer want in your life with each exhale, and I refer to it as my “Etch a Sketch®” move—the “do over” move. It’s like, “here’s our opportunity to begin again”. Treat this visualization like that.

Since the color blue is cooling, sometimes I imagine a royal blue stream of water as an anti-inflammatory for any sore joints, visualizing a ball of blue energy cleansing out the joint in a circular fashion then carrying the inflammation down the drain. This simple exercise leaves me feeling lighter and less stiff in the joints, as well as infuses me with positive emotions since invariably; I imagine my waterfall being in Hawaii!

Here are a few Web-sites on using salt to cleanse yourself of “bad energy”:
