Chakra Balancing Meals

Sacral Chakra

Healing carrot soup

The sacral chakra is one of creativity, emotion, and connecting with others. When this chakra gets blocked you can experience a lack of creativity and confidence, as well as difficulty forming meaningful relationships with others. In families this can be difficult to deal with. On the other hand if your sacral chakra is overactive you can still experience creativity but have no outlet for this creativity.

For a long time I didn’t write or learn many new skills. After much thought and retrospect I realized that it all boiled down to self doubt. I didn’t do things because I assumed I would mess them up or that no one would like the finished product. I was also feeling unbalanced. Not necessarily that I had a blocked chakra, but something was definitely off. This is a symptom of an unbalanced sacral chakra. I was still feeling very much creative and wanted to express that, but I didn’t have the confidence to attempt a project.

This is why I like to continue my chakra cleansing diet with a good, creamy, carrot soup. Not only is it filled with vitamin C and helps the immune system protect the body, but it’s great for cleansing and rebalancing your sacral chakra and helping you maintain those healthy family ties.

First we want to add our Grapeseed to our medium to large pot on medium to high heat. I rave about grapeseed oil. It’s affordable, it’s a wonderful cooking oil, and it’s amazing for your skin. Between cooking,and making healing oils, moisturizers, and arthritis oils, I go through a lot of grapeseed oil.

Second is the diced and peeled onions. Onions have been used in magic for centuries to banish negativity and attract positive energy. As i cook these in my grapeseed oil I like to infuse them with energy to banish the negative forces ailing my family.

Next is our chopped and peeled carrots. Carrots are said to bring to light what is in the shadows. As we dream, meditate, or daydream our brain finds a way to bring us peace either by distracting us or by forcing us to focus on the problem to devise a solution. This will help our chakra cleansing by aiding us in dealing with any attachment injuries affecting you, or a family member.

After this we will add our garlic, apple cider vinegar, salt, and pepper. This will be cooked for about 10 minutes. After this we will add the ginger to our mix. Ginger is often used in magic for passion, balance, and healing. I give my family ginger as often as possible. It’s amazing for the digestive system and sinuses, and is also used to open the sacral chakra. The ginger in our brew will be either minced or shredded as per preference.

Next we will add the broth. For my vegetable broth I like to use garden vegetables and infuse them with healing energy stones to have on hand and save for later use. It’s a wonderful way to use compost bits or any veggies you may have grown.

Now we’ll set our stone circle and let our cauldron do its magic for about 30 minutes. Stones such as carnelian, citrine, and orange calcite can be used for this chakra. The stones can be placed in a circle around the pot, around the kitchen, or in a specific grid such as the tree of life or metatron’s cube. Listen to the energy and it will guide you. After this we will blend the soup until it is the preferred consistency. I like to use my immersion blender, but a food processor or regular blender can be used.

To help balance the chakra, as this is one I have had problems with the most, I like to add my ingredients stirring widdershins to help banish any negative energies in my ingredients and stir Deosil while the ingredients mix and meld to attract positive, caring, and healing energies into my family’s food.

Store any leftovers in the fridge for up to 4 days, or can for a longer shelf life. I hope you and yours enjoy this meal and it helps your creative side flourish and your confidence sore. Blessed be.
