Are you continually worried about paying the bills? Have problems and family situations? Frustration, concerns? Are you burnt out?
The Root Chakra influences your physical vitality, physical survival instincts, 'fight or flight' reaction, and the emotions of jealousy, rage, desire and greed. The Muladhara or Root Chakra governs the lessons of surviving the material world. The First Chakra holds information involving family devotion, superstitions and beliefs, and your ability to remain true for yourself, and your sense of protection, self confidence, and stability are rooted here. Deficiencies in the Muladhara might be revealed as losing interest with real-world activities, physical addictions and obsessions, envy, restlessness, volatile feelings and a lack of energy. The Muladhara chakra is positioned at the root of the spine. It's the Chakra used to ground yourself to Mother Earth, and can be used to let go of all that negativity, and to recharge yourself!
The Root Chakra's vital color is red, more negative colors are black, brown and gray. It serves as the connection to the Etheric layer of the aura and the physical body. It is the auric layer closest to the body, and consisits of a grayish 'heat wave' 2-3 inches around the body. It anchors the aura, and connects it with the awareness of the physical human body, and with physical survival.
By far, the easiest, quickest, and best approach to release the fatiguing and irritating difficulties brought on by energy blockages in the Root Chakra is through sound. Sound is a very direct, vibrational energy, quickly felt by the body. Just wear a set of earphones, close your eyes, and rest for 27 minutes. The Alpha Level Binaural Beats operate to release your frustrations, worries, and pessimism, so you don't have to! Survive and flourish! This Root Chakra meditation features Tibetan Singing Bowls, and the Binaural Beats make use of the deepest Solfeggio tones of 396 Hz. The sound continues along Earth Resonance frequencies to a low of 7.83 Hz, then back up to an Earth Resonant frequency of 14.1 Hz. This deeply relaxing Muladhara sound healing won't only help with Root Chakra balance, it will also aid in balancing your mind and spirit to the wavelengths of Gaia, our Mother Earth.
Yoga positions for the Muladhara are the Bridge pose, or 'Setu Bandhasana '. Yoga has several health advantages, both physical and psychological, as well as energetic and spiritual rewards, too. A simple, inexpensive crystal, or bit of Chakra jewelry may help you ground your self, and hold your angry and frustrated emotions at peace. Stones such as onyx, bloodstone, hematite, labodorite, garnet, ruby, black tourmaline, fireplace agate, star ruby smoky quartz, and red jasper are beneficial in Root Chakra balancing. Using Chakra fragrance oils is a beautiful method to stay grounded and empowered. Essential oils and flower essences ideal for Root Chakra stability are frankincense, ylang-ylang, rosemary, myrrh, benzoin, patchouli, sandalwood, corn and clematis. Foods that fire and create balance in the Root Chakra are root vegetables like potatoes, onions, garlic, parsnips, radishes, beets, and protein rich foods such as meat, eggs, beans, peanut butter, tofu and soy solutions, and hot herbs such cayenne, and pepper, horseradish, hot paprika, and green onions.
