Day 18: 90 Days of Wisdom - Base Chakra Breathwork for Releasing Fear and Anxiety

This guided activation was originally channeled by Jennifer Starlight of the Invisible College - http://theinvisiblecollege.com.au. It helps to clear the energy of the base chakra and is followed by a single round of SOMA Breath to amplify the new energy.
