We are all just a Chakra bundle of energy. Like a tree, we have roots, and if nourished, we can grow big, and beautiful and become significant contributors to our lives, as well as the lives around us.
The first chakra which is called Muladhara or Root Chakra, associated with the color red, it’s element is Earth, and its symbol is a four petal lotus flower.
The root chakra is the first Chakra in the body, and it is located at the base of our spine at the tailbone, and it is related to our feeling of being safe and grounded, and feeling rooted in our lives. When our first Chakra is out of balance, it can affect our survival needs such as; money, home, food, and how we are in the outside world. It also relates to physical vitality through physical enjoyment, presence, strength, being grounded in the present, and the feeling of being in our body. It can also represent the opposite such as; dis~ease, dis~confort, feelings of lethargic, unsafe, afraid, and ungrounded.
What can we do?
Practice self-love, self-reliance, self-compassion, and remember you have a right to be here just as much as the next guy, so get in the game of YOU life.
When we feel supported mostly from our own energy within, the energy is a vital flow that is uninhibited, and it allows free-flowing energy upward to the rest of the chakras and can open many doors into the wisdom of our lives. Things just seem to work out even if they would appear dark to others feeling rooted, whole, strong allows us to know everything is as it needs to be.
There is much more related to the root Chakra, but this is just a taste, to shift your focus to how the energy works in your beautiful body.
I am open to the deep reservoir of love in my heart
I am loving, and I am loved!
I am thoughtful, compassionate, and committed to the unfolding of others.
I take delight and joy in the success of others
I open my heart to embrace the world as one human family
I freely let go of the past and forgive myself and others
I love this quote by Rumi; “Maybe you are searching among the branches, for what only appears in the roots.”
“To be rooted is perhaps the most important and least recognized need of the human soul.” ~ Simone Weil
