We are rainbows; beautiful light energy. This energy is radiated through our physical body, resonating through our spiritual, mental, emotional, sensual, and intuitive realms.
Our seven chakras house and reflect the vibration and health of that area of our being and spirit. When all chakras are open, our energy flows like a river. When a chakra is blocked, our energy flow becomes blocked and irregular. This can manifest through physical ailments, spiritual blockages and emotional upheavals.
The RAW Connection
Food is a sacred gift. The food that was placed on our earth to feed our physical and support our spiritual body comes to us in the form of living plant life. Vegetables, Fruits, medicinal weeds and wild plants, nuts, seeds and sea vegetables.
Now more than ever before, we are bombarded with fake foods. Lab created, factory made items that are filled with harmful and toxic preservatives, chemicals, colorings and adulterated fats. These “foods” do not support our physical body. In fact, they cause it harm. They create disease in the body through creating blockages. They block our arteries, our colons and they block our flow of energy. They are created to be addictive so that we continue to crave and consume. The more we consume the more we are blocked. The further we get from fresh plants, the further we are from that beautiful river of energy that allows us to experience peace, happiness, unconditional love and pure bliss.
When we consume plant life that contains living energy, we are bringing that energy into our bodies. There is a delicate and intricate communication system between plant life and our bodies. When living plant life goes in, our bodies instinctively know how to use every part of that plant. Not only does our body drink in the vital nutrients, minerals, water and living enzymes, it takes in the vibration of that plant.
The vibration of the food comes from many things; where it was grown, when it was picked, was it cared for with love, how far did it travel to get to you, and what color it is.
Eating living raw food, so colorful and vibrant, is not only beautiful and nutritious, it gives us the ability to choose the food based on what chakra we want to support!

The RAW Connection: Eat grounding foods like beets and carrots, roots and foods with rich reds, browns and deep orange coloring
Sacral chakra aligns with the color orange. This chakra involves relationships, emotional needs and pleasure. When we are out of balance, this chakra is aligned with violence and addiction. Physically, this chakra houses reproduction, mentally it houses creativity, emotionally it houses joy and spiritually it houses enthusiasm
The RAW Connection: Eat bright orange foods like mangos, oranges, and grapefruit – these foods nourish our sexual and creativity center
Solar Plexus chakra resonates with the color yellow – sun energy. This chakra houses our personal power and is where personality is formed. Emotions, intuition and psychic energies are all integrated into the self.
The RAW Connection: Eat yellow and light colored foods like bananas, nut milks, grains, flax seed, sunflower seeds and coconut – these foods boost self esteem and encourage self love
Heart chakra resonates with the color green – the color of our mother earth. The Heart chakra involves complex emotions, compassion, tenderness, equilibrium, rejection and wellbeing. It is the center from which feelings of love originate and through which we emotionally relate to others.
The RAW Connection: Eat green foods like leafy veggies, herbal teas, broccoli, celery savory herbs like basil, sage and thyme. These foods help heal emotional hurts
Throat chakra resonates with the color blue or turquoise. It relates to communication and growth through expression and creativity. Emotions, thoughts and feelings transform into audible expressions.

Third eye chakra resonates with the color white, indigo or deep blue. This chakra center deals with clarity of mind and spirit on an intuitive level. This is where we balance and listen to our inner guidance and intuition. Emotionally, it deals with clarity on an intuitive level.
The RAW Connection: Eat foods that are dark in color like blueberries, blackberries, lavender and raw cacao – these foods help awaken and open the third eye.
Crown chakra resonates with the color violate and is located at the crown of the head. It is associated with wisdom and consciousness as pure awareness. All is timeless in this chakra – a place of pure being.
The RAW Connection: Cleanse the body through fasting and detoxing – whether it be waiting until you are truly hungry before eating your next meal, only eating small amounts or doing an actual cleanse. I’m a fan of doing a 2-3 day cleanse when the seasons change.
I love using incense, essential oils and smudging herbs to awaken my crown chakra.
* When you eat from the rainbow – you become the rainbow!
* I feel my best when I practice a chakra balancing meditation in the morning and before bed – only takes a few minutes!
May your chakra energy flow like the sweet river of life.
