Healing the Body's Energy System-The Root Chakra

The root chakra is the body’s intake point for universal energy.  It is the first chakra in the body’s energy system.  This chakra sends energy down through the legs and feet and,  it acts as a root to pull Sheng Chi (positive energy) up from the earth.

The root chakra’s purpose is to ensure that the body, mind and spirit flourish. The primitive functions of life: eating, sleeping, having shelter and security are the functions performed by the root chakra.  When this chakra is malfunctioning, basic needs go unmet.  An imbalance in the root chakra leaves us stuck, surviving, and nothing more.

SYMPTOMS OF AN IMBALANCED ROOT CHAKRA

  • Hemorrhoids
  • Constipation
  • Arthritis
  • Ungrounded
  • Lower back pain
  • Weight issues
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Diarrhea
  • Foot spurs
  • Greed
  • Poverty
  • Low Energy
  • Hyperactivity
  • Recklessness
  • Clumsy
  • Insecure
  • Low self esteem
  • Untrusting
  • Poor sense of smell
  • Sleep disorders

A balanced root chakra enables us to grow physically, mentally and emotionally. It helps the other chakras pull in energy and maintain good health.

SIGNS OF A BALANCED ROOT CHAKRA

  • Common Sense
  • Trusting
  • Passionate
  • Self confident

  • Sense of security
  • Properly Nourished

TECHNIQUES TO BRING BALANCE BACK TO THE ROOT CHAKRA

Two services we offer at the Twin Cities Mind Coaching Center in our Hypnosis Sessions and Rapid Results Coaching Program is Aromatherapy using Pure doTerra Essential Oils and 98% Pure Quartz Crystal Bowl Sound Therapy for Clearing and Healing.  Our Crystal Bowl is the C note which aligns the body with the Root Chakra.

CRYSTAL BOWL SOUND THERAPY

The root chakra responds very well to Crystal Bowl sound therapy using the C note for clearing energetic blocks and bringing harmony into the body's energetic and circulatory system.

AROMA THERAPY

What better way to bring the root chakra back into balance than to use the sense of smell. After all, the sensory function of the root chakra is the sense of smell. There are several different ways you can benefit from the corresponding aromatic oils of the root chakra which are: cloves, rosemary, cypress or cedar. Diffuse or apply to the bottom of your feet.

OTHER TECHNIQUES

EFFECTIVE USE OF THE COLOR RED

Red represents energy, passion, strength and vitality.  Red is also the corresponding color for the root chakra.  Wear or visualize the color red to begin to bring balance back to the root chakra.

NATURE

Take some time to be in nature. This is a great way for the root chakra to do what it does best – pull energy from the earth.

Go outside and stand on the ground barefoot.   Stand with your feet placed shoulder width apart, straighten the spine, stick the chest out and raise the chin up.

SITTING

Sit with the back straight and feet firmly planted on the ground.  This is a double benefit because it will help the root chakra more freely pull energy from the ground up to the other chakras.

YOGA

Use the yoga pose “tree posture” to gain a further sense of being grounded.  While standing, bring one foot up and place it on the standing leg.  Then bring the palms together in a prayer pose, and lift the prayer pose towards the sky. This funnels grounding energy from below and universal energy from above.

KEGELS

Kegels is a floor exercise for the pelvic, which contracts and relaxes the muscles of the coccyx and buttock.  Kegels are a strengthening technique for the root chakra.

EXERCISE

Any exercise that works the legs such as squats, bicycling, and running are also beneficial to the root chakra.  Whenever the corresponding body parts of the chakra are exercised, the chakra itself will be energized.

FOOT MASSAGE

A special treat such as a foot massage might do the trick to balance the root chakra.  A foot massage stimulates blood flow to the lower extremities.  This signals the root chakra to pull in more universal energy.

AFFIRMATIONS

I feel at ease in my body.

I am nourished by nature.

I am safe and secure.

I trust that my needs will be met.

When the root chakra is balanced, we set the stage for harmony in our other chakras.  There are six more chakras to discover and understand.  Please visit Healing Village for posts that offer an in-depth look at the other six chakras:  navel, sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, forehead and crown.

Remember healing begins with you!
