Goooood Tuesday morning! How are you this morning! Are you feeling the crunch of the work week? I know I am, but let's hold on tight and get through it together! Many of you have asked me to blog about the chakras so this will be the first of seven blog entries. I'm going to break it down by chakras, how I know them and what I've experienced! It can be quite fascinating and also hit you like an epiphany when you begin to make these correlations between life & chakras. If you understand the chakras and what they represent, you may be able to help yourself heal in many ways. Often times if a chakra is out of balance it will manifest physically.
The chakra system and beliefs originated in Hinduism in India and depicts an understanding of the flow of energy in the human body. The word "chakra" actually means "wheel of light." There are seven major chakras, and many additional, but we'll focus on the major chakras.
Let's start with the first chakra, known as the root chakra. It is located at the base of your spine, and it's Sanskrit name is Muladhara, and is associated the the deep earthly shade of red, and the music note "C." This chakras represents your connection to self and earth experience. Additionally, it represents your passion, your relation to material things and relationships.
If this chakra is out of balance, physically you may experience the following: low back pain, knee pain/issues, hemorrhoids, constipation, prostate problems, weight issues and more. On the other hand, if this chakra is out of balance you may not always have the physical manifestation of the issues, but you may have result such as lack of connection with family/friends. You may also experience a lack of abundance and wealth. In my experience with Reiki, I have seen bothersome relationships cause an imbalance to this chakra and severe depression through the loss of a loved one can also cause strong imbalances. Although this can seem a little frightening there many things you can do to bring balance into this chakra and this area of your life. Some easy, quick tips to strengthen the health of you root Chakra:
- *Walking outside, barefoot can help ground you and balance this chakra.
- * Eat, drink and even wear the color red. This will nourish the vibration.
- *Walking outdoors, and gardening.
- *Energy healing through Reiki can revive/balance this chakra too.
- *The music note "C" and the sound of drums will also foster balance and health. * Carry a ruby, bloodstone, garnet or obsidian crystals to help achieve balance. * Cedar, patchouli or sandalwood oils also help nourish this chakra.
Well! I hope this quick guide to help you understand the first chakra, more commonly known as the root chakra is useful to you! For me, learning about the chakras was very fascinating and I could begin to see the direct correlations in my life. Tell me what you think! What experience do you have with the chakras? I want to hear from you! Have a happy Tuesday!
