Working With Earth Chakra™ Essence for Extra Grounding During Stress and Challenge

Working With Earth Chakra™ Essence for Extra Grounding During Stress and Challenge

Change, Resistance, and Instability

Change always comes one way or another – it’s part of life –   It’s true, most humans don’t change unless they’re forced to – and even if you’re open to change, innate, subconscious resistance can mount before you have notice to counter it.  What’s more, the Universe at times can seem to conspire…. to put obstacles or challenges in your path, sometimes one after the other, forcing you to reckon with the very thing you want most to avoid.  Although it may feel like it’s there to ensure (or bring about) your demise, it’s ultimately about resurrecting your innermost courage, and stirring your resolve – bringing about the necessary inner change and transformation needed for the next phase of life.  It’s there to challenge, test, and strengthen your character, to teach you to flex your inner muscle and grow – to develop your inner character and find out what you’re really all about.  And, guess what?  You’re much stronger than you think.  The Universe never gives you more than you can handle – it may give you more than you want to handle, but never more than you can.  You are perfectly equipped to handle this, whatever this may be.  Sometimes, though, you do need a little extra help… and that’s exactly what Shanti Kai Earth Chakra is here to provide – an energetic boost to help you ground, balance, and tap into your inner strength! 


Working with Life’s “Triggers”

Think of a time that you thought you couldn’t possibly get through – there was no path forward – a time when your world seemed to crumble around you.  Live long enough and no matter how strong you think you are, this kind of thing eventually happens.  But when you think back on it, though it may still hurt,  given enough time, you will likely find that very crisis has become a source of faith, and though bittersweet, strength.  If you work with your emotional triggers and the things that bother you – instead of avoiding them- if you are taking accountability and really getting the lessons that you are here to learn, you’ll find that the things you thought of as happening to you or being bad– the inconveniences and pitfalls of life – are often actually the very things that alter your life path, shaping who you are on a deeper level.   Shanti Kai Earth Chakra can help you find the grounding and sense of presence needed to stay firmly rooted, so that when challenges do come, you are prepared to answer them.   


How You Respond

Remember too, it is not the things that happen to you or even through you that matter most, it is how you respond to all these things – from moment to moment, thought to thought…it is your response that [incrementally] shapes your destiny.  What’s more, how you respond to a situation or circumstance – even if you made a HUGE mistake, often says way more about who you are than anything you did (good or bad) ever could.  Showing remorse, empathy, caution, and doing all that you can to make things right – taking accountability for your actions and being responsible moving forward, is much more telling of your inner character than being right ever could.  Working with Shanti Kai™ Earth Chakra™ can help you set your grounding, enabling you to become increasingly awake and aware, and giving you an edge in navigating life’s conflicts and challenges – helping you surf the waves of change… one tsunami at a time.  


Good Versus Bad

Life’s cycles tend to resemble the action of a wave – like peaks and valleys – they follow universal principles and laws, including, the law of gravity: what goes up, must come down.  What you think of as bad on the physical plane is often the source of good on the spiritual – and bad things are often followed by good.  That is life. The people that have the greatest success at life are not the ones who face the least challenges – indeed, the lives of the most successful individuals are often rife with huge challenges.  Like a volcano spurs the growth of new land, so too, can your own seeming eruptions also spawn new growth and direction; Shanti Kai Earth Chakra can help you learn to finally let go of the pressure, so you can enjoy life, one moment at a time. 


Life’s Challenges: The Refiners Fire

It’s all well enough and easy to talk about in hindsight, but when you’re in a crisis or going through challenging times, regardless of why, it can feel like the refiners fire – full of pressure, heat, instability, and volatility – all leaving you in a heightened state of vulnerability.  And no one knows how to handle that very pressure, heat, volatility, and instability better than Mother Earth.  For as long as she is old, Mother Earth has been maintaining a fiery core countered by external weather calamities consisting of erupting volcanoes, earthquakes, tsunamis, tornados, hurricanes and more.  But, she’s also been handling a different sort of energy – disasters brought about by mankind.  Some would say that they’re connected, that weather calamities are a projection of the state of mass consciousness at any given time – that if you brew enough anger you’ll see the Earth react.  Other individuals, on the other hand, complain that they feel their wrists or joints become sore and weaken as the result of an incoming storm – that it is the pressure of the weather systems that provoke their inner tension.  

Perhaps it’s a matter of the chicken or the egg, but regardless, one thing remains clear: Mother Earth has the frequencies needed to heal and restore.  Deep within her fiery core, and growing abundantly on her rich terrain, lies an alchemy of riches – resources that we’ve harnessed in Essence form, blended and synergized- to help you find the grounding and rooting needed to navigate challenging times.  Whether it be major planetary shifts – such as brought on by cosmic alignments (which can include sudden unexpected weather and or events such as earthquakes), personal life crisis, family problems, or issues at work – Shanti Kai Earth Chakra is a wonderful tool for grounding, that can help you navigate life’s ever changing terrain.  


You’ve Arrived

Wherever you are in life – with respect to your personal path, you’re here right now.  And that means at least part of the lesson and opportunity at hand (regardless the situation) is presence, being here now.  Grounding, rooting and balancing- – extracting your mind from the pain of the past and/or the worries of the future.  What’s more, if you tend to dissociate, leave your body – i.e. to not be fully present – and/or to escape into a fantasy world or use distractions around you to avoid your current reality, Earth Chakra can be the perfect Essence to work with as a tool for helping you stay present- or as Eckhart Tolle put it best, “to be Here Now”.   

Shanti Kai Earth Chakra™ Essence is an energetic tool that provides the download of frequencies to help your mind override the potentially negative program that wants to kick in, by providing the energies needed to shift into a more positive one. Anytime you are in a situation wherein you feel unsafe, lack presence, encounter instability, volatility and even shock – if there is escalating conflict, and/or a sense of growing discontent, lack of happiness, and/or feeling of fiery emotions rising to the surface – the following suggestions for working with Shanti Kai Earth Chakra may be especially helpful:

  • Ground Yourself.  Getting strong in your foundation, and back to the simple joys is the first step to freeing yourself of inner malaise.  Spending a little time with nature is a great way to start.  Spray your third eye, temples and base of neck – close your eyes and simply let yourself be present.  Practice mindfulness and contemplation, meditation, and/or focused relaxation.  Whatever the activity, whether you’re sitting and journaling, meditating, taking a walk or even working, use the Earth Chakra Essence beforehand, to ground yourself and set the energy to just be.   Getting back to simple things can bring grounding and help you connect with your higher self and/or spiritual connection, as well as invoke great joy and contentment. 


  • ROOT yourself.  Literally… and… in a visual sense.  Let’s take the simple grounding a step further.  You’ve already sprayed your third eye temples, and base of neck (if also doing step 1) but also include along your spine…. go ahead and include the backs of your legs and bottoms of your feet too.  Visualize a grounding cord, as if you have a tree trunk growing from the base of your spine reaching far into the Earth.  Perhaps it finds some bedrock to connect to. Feel it take hold of the bedrock, and allow it to root you.   


  • Be Present.  Close your eyes and breathe- if you’ve done steps 1 & 2 then you’re already there… if you’re working with this separately, close your eyes and settle in.  Visualize the point just under your navel and put one hand over it as you breathe.  Become aware of your sitting bones – if you’re sitting – and the Earth beneath earth your feet.   You may wish to apply Earth Chakra Essence over the area under your navel, along your spine, and/or the tops and bottoms of your feet.  Take a few deep inhales and allow yourself to simply be and just breathe.  Visualize- feel, see, sense, or imagine–  green light coming in from deep within the Earth and filling up this area (just below your navel) with  healing green light.  Stay with this visual (or if you do not visualize well, stay with this sense of imagining) and continue to breathe, pulling green light up and in.  If your thoughts or feelings fall away, chances are they were not important, mere clutter – and you can simply let them go.  If they stay with you, they may contain important information you need to explore.  Simply take note, and return your focus to the growing energy and light within you.  You may even begin to sense the green light overflowing and pulsating outward, bringing healing to areas of your body that are tired or needing a little extra attention. Stay with this practice for several minutes and, when possible, for a longer, extended meditation. If you’re busy and just have a moment – remember you can shift your energy in a fraction of a second – one moment of focused intentionality is more powerful than a million moments of absentminded thought.  And… the sum of many moments (over time) can profoundly impact your life.


  • Be Intentional.  Affirm that you are present, protected, and grounded – in perfect connection to Mother Earth and her overflowing abundance.  Especially if only doing this step, shake up your Earth Chakra Essence and spray throughout your aura.  Use arms width and turn the nozzle inward, toward you, and mist throughout your energy field, creating the effect of a light mist settling onto your skin and physical body.  This is also a great way to apply Earth Chakra if you are tired, burdened or drained, and can’t seem to pull yourself out of it.  If there is an area of life especially challenging to you, then create an affirmation to work with as you use this.  Remember, believability is the key with affirmations.  Make it believable – but still positive –  so that your mind doesn’t fight you on it (and so your subconscious doesn’t conjure up all the reasons what you are saying isn’t true). 


  • Practice Gr-Attitude for the Abundance you already have.  Gratitude opens the floodgates of Heaven, and yet it is so, so, soooooo easy to forget this and get stuck in FOMO (fear of missing out) or comparing yourself to others regarding what you do not have.  Stop focusing on what you do not have and start focusing on what you are grateful for.  This brings peace and presence.  Simply close your eyes and turn your attention to the things you are grateful for, one by one affirming them with gratitude. This is a great exercise if you are finding yourself feeling resentment or spite towards aspects of your life that are challenging or difficult.  


  • Ask for what you want, but then LET IT GO!  Mother Earth is Abundant and will provide*- Sometimes you must simply ask, and harmonizing before you ask can make a substantial difference in how well you are heard.  For this step, shake well and apply spray over your lower chakras (front and back)- if you are unfamiliar, this encompasses your root, navel, and solar plexus (diaphragm, just under your chest region) areas.  Detachment is king, yet there are some things you simply need, desire, and or must have.  So go ahead and ask for what you want and then let it go.  Take a moment with your eyes closed, apply a spray over your 3rd eye and temple areas and focus on what it is you want and/or need- how this would look and feel to have it, and then simply let it go.  


  • Contemplate Contentment.  The whole world has FOMO right now (fear of missing out) – social media screams of it.  Thus, one way to go about grounding yourself is by simplifying your desires and expectations, grounding yourself, and practicing mindfulness and contentment.  If you don’t buy into the illusion of lack, you are less likely to get caught in the snares of desire…and the pain of disappointment, and/or anger and resentment over not having.  It was Jim Carrey once said “I think everybody should get rich and famous and do everything they ever dreamed of so they can see that it’s not the answer.”   If you think of all the things you want on a daily basis, underneath all those things is the idea that they will bring some sense of contentment, inner peace, security and joy.  Without inner peace, what is the value of any of it?  Contentment is Divine Nectar. When you are steeped in it, you do not become a part of the chorus of grudges or jungle of complaints that are indubitably all around you.  You stay out of the rat race and allow the need to keep up to fall away.  For this step, shake well and spray Earth Chakra over your Sahasrara or Crown Chakra, as well as the front and back of your Heart Center (i.e. upper chest and mid-upper back areas).  Close your eyes and practice seeing things as perfect just the way they are, that everything is just as it should be.  

*In saying that Mother Earth provides, or suggesting you ask Her for your needs, to be meant is in no way negating the value of your own spiritual connection, religion, and/or practice.  At Shanti Kai, we honor and respect all paths and traditions, and refer to Mother Earth as an expression of the omnipotence of God.  It is fine to substitute this expression or intention to insert your spiritual connection, to personalize it so that it works for you.  We feel that the body-mind-spirit trinity is essential to acknowledge for total healing and growth, and thus that it is necessary to include it, but it is in no way meant to be limiting or exclusive to any particular belief system or practice. 

Hibiscus Master Flower Essence for Root and Sacral Chakra Balance, Grounding and Vitality

Hibiscus Master Flower Essence for Root and Sacral Chakra Balance, Grounding and Vitality

Our Hibiscus Master™ Flower Essence, contains infusions of over 22 varieties of Hibiscus, and is a wonderful tool for balancing issues relating to your lower chakras.  This blend promotes stability, grounding, and vitality…. bringing back your passion for life so that you can live more abundantly, and fully present in each moment!

Releasing energetic blockages in your root and sacral chakras can help improve the flow of life force energy relating to these areas, in turn promoting better circulation and enhancing overall well-being. Using this essence directly on your feet, legs, hips, low back and spine (i.e. areas relating to your root and sacral chakras) can help clear blocked energies, bringing greater overall balance to these areas.  This can be especially important if you spend long hours seated at a desk, or if you experience discomfort in your low back or hips.

Hibiscus Essence may also help release energetic blockages which can underlie problems in these regions, including hormonal and digestive issues.  Working with this essence encourages the release of such blocks, which may contain stored memories relating to fear, worry/anxiety (i.e. forms of fear), anger,  survival  (especially relating to issues of lack or “not having enough”), negative memories or stored trauma from early family life (i.e. childhood trauma), and stored emotion regarding past relationships/partnerships (i.e. feelings of rejection, betrayal, shame, etc).

Hibiscus can also be a beneficial tool if you are a meditator or trying to start a meditation practice, practice yoga and/or have “stiff” hips, as releasing blocks in the base chakras (which include hip areas) can help release negative emotions, especially anger, that tend to be stored in the hip areas.  It further supports the mental release of issues from the past, and can help you let go of baseless fears regarding the future…in this way helping you clear your mind and stay present, living fully in each moment, breath by breath.

This essence teaches the affirmation: “Love this moment. This moment is your life.”

Aside from our Weekly Tip (below) you may also enjoy working with the following suggestions:

  • Used regularly and before meditation it may help prepare your foundation so you can sit for longer periods of time, until ultimately you can still both body and mind for long periods of time.
  • Used before sitting for work, especially if you work in an office or cubicle type setting, where you are seated for long hours, it may help you energetically balance and align your sitting bones so that over time you do not develop problems due to discomfort.
  • Used as a room spray before working on projects or group gatherings, it may help to bring passion into whatever you are working on.


Working with this essence can be especially beneficial if you experience one or more of the following:
Red Hibiscus

  • Long hours seated at a desk
  • Discomfort in your low back, or hips
  • Issues in your legs, feet, and/or spine
  • Lack of motivation
  • Depressed energies or loss of passion for life
  • Mental anxiety or worry about the future
  • Repetitive unpleasant thoughts, memories and/or feelings from the past
  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Digestive/elimination imbalance
  • Guilt, shame, and/or unworthiness especially relating to relationship issues
  • Trouble sitting for meditation
  • Anger and/or tightness in your hips


… AND/OR if you experience other issues in these areas, as they may be symptomatic of energetic blocks in this region.

For maximum benefit, try spraying Hibiscus Master Essence over your: third eye, temples, base of the skull, along your spine, as well as over the front and back of your base chakras, hips, legs, and feet. You may spray all of these areas at once or rotate each area with alternating use**.   You can use this anytime you feel you could use some energetic support with any of these areas and to promote balance, motivation and greater passion for life.

**In the same way that if your stomach is hungry you don’t have to inject food into it, when you spray an essence, you don’t necessarily have to spray it on that area (especially if it’s inappropriate or hard to get to).   However, applying to the area(s) of discomfort or tension can still be helpful and even therapeutic.  The most sensitive areas tend to be the third eye, base of skull, temples, and throat region… and that’s why we always list them first. The rest are at your discretion and intuition.

Note: If you do not have our Hibiscus Essence, you may also substitute for our Muladhara™: Root Chakra Essence, and/or Svadhisthana™: Sacral Chakra Essence, carefully crafted blends of synergistically balanced plant and mineral frequencies designed to target a range of energetic issues originating in your Root and/or Sacral chakra areas, respectively. Earth Chakra™ Essence, while a vastly different formula, would be another suitable alternative in absence of Hibiscus Master™ or Muladhara™: Root Chakra.You may also find one of the many individual varieties of Hibiscus, a few of which are also on sale and featured below beneficial:[vc_column width=”1/2″]

  • Light Pink Hibiscus Flower Essence has an emphasis on healing from grief and loss, grounding and increasing feelings of safety, and embracing your feminine side. It may be especially beneficial as it relates to your early family life, home life, and romantic partnerships, and social relationships.  If you have a tendency toward aggression or a hot temperament, have a tendency to unintentionally cause conflict, and/or have a rough time during PMS or other hormonal cycles, you may benefit from the gentle quality of Pink Hibiscus.
  • Rocks Kauai Hibiscus (aka Hau Tree) Flower Essence carries the properties of the Master Hibiscus™ Essence but with emphasis on balancing your sacral and solar plexus chakras, as well as the mental and emotional subtle energy bodies. Hau Tree may help balance the emotional energies you carry, helping you work through and release lower emotions so that you do not become “congested” or blocked by them.  It also helps “lighten” your mind, allowing you more room to think rationally and act with clarity.  Hau Tree Essence helps align all three lower chakras and encourages happiness and emotional balance, whilst also strengthening your partnerships and familial relations.
  • Red Hawaiian Hibiscus Flower Essence benefits increasing strength, vitality and passion for life.  It can be beneficial in repatterning fear of lack or limiting and/or inhibiting beliefs so that you once again feel impassioned about life and free to live and think abundantly.  It’s essence can help release blocks in your lower chakras that house reproductive organs and thus may benefit females who suffer from menstrual imbalance (and/or reproductive issues); red hibiscus Essence can also help encourage your energy to heal if you’ve experienced past sexual trauma (as this can create blocks in your root and sacral chakras that manifest outwardly in physical symptoms and/or related problems).

[/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″]

  • Milo Flower Essence carries qualities of Master Hibiscus with emphasis on helping detoxify and recharge your solar plexus region, and significantly increasing your light quotient potential that you carry in both body and mind. Milo Essence helps balance your emotional energies, so that they do not block your ability to think and see clearly. It also helps recharge subtle energy centers in the brain, especially when taken before meditating or being in sunshine.
  • Molokai White Native Hibiscus Flower Essence benefits purification and renewal, and the clearing of lower vibrational energies that accumulate around the root and sacral chakras. It also relates more to balancing male reproductive and sexual energies than some of the other Hibiscus varieties (such as the pink or lavender variety), which tend to be more feminine. It helps to purify the root and sacral chakra and would help you “cleanse” from past relationship issues and also help you in situations where you must rebuild, or start over from the ground up.
  • Golden Hibiscus Flower Essence carries the qualities of the Master Hibiscus Essence, with emphasis on increasing reserves of mana in the sacral chakra. It helps to balance and uplift your vibration so that negative emotions stored in the sacral and manipura energy centers can be more readily transmuted into raw physical energy.

Earth Chakra™ Essence for Grounding

Earth Chakra Essence for GroundingOur Earth Chakra Essence™ is a powerhouse of newly discovered gemstones spanning every continent and carrying the healing vibrations that are needed on this planet right now. This gemstone synergy is complimented by orchids and flowers grown in the volcano; After molten lava has just formed new Earth the plants that grow there are most adaptable, rooted and persistent lending us these qualities in their essences. We recommend it for making a connection with Mother Earth over the holidays – so you can stay rooted and full of vitality and joy.

I’ve been working with Earth Essence for anxiety I’ve been experiencing over the Holidays. My work is so busy and I have a million things going on but my anxiousness got so intense that it was preventing me from getting things done.  I tuned into where I was feeling anxious/ungrounded… I then sprayed feet, forehead, low back, crown etc with intention of releasing fear/anxiety. I decided that I would use the Essence every 5 minutes to see if my fear could calm down. I felt it shift with each round and had to do 3 rounds of spraying, the latter focusing on areas I was holding the anxiety (heart and stomach) until I felt really calm and centered. I was then able to get a bunch of stuff done and off my to do list.  When I tuned in to work with the spray I felt a shift – I felt I could better control my mind. And without the spray I’m relying on my own willpower to get myself shifted out of it, which is like pushing a boulder up a mountain–almost impossible.
