微笑棋牌现金版下载The Root Chakra is the foundation of the physical body. It is the seat of inherited beliefs, self-preservation (fight or flight instincts), identification with the physical world and survival. A healthy root chakra helps you have a solid connection to family and community, enjoy financial security, readily take action and feel happy and alive. It governs the immune and skeletal systems.

When the root chakra is weak or unbalanced, you may have adrenal, colon and kidney problems and weakness in the legs and spine. You may also suffer from anxiety, greed, selfishness, lack of confidence and failure to follow through. Heal the root chakra by exercise, dance, being in nature and cooking and cleaning.

The Root Chakra is a particularly interesting and potent one when it comes to food, and very often problems associated with this chakra (lack of sense of place, ungroundedness, disconnection from the world around you, financial problems) can be effectively and quickly brought under control by changing your diet to root chakra-friendly foods. As this chakra pulses with a vivid red color, red foods are an ideal companion for it. These include red meats and other animal proteins, red fruits and berries (especially pomegranates and cranberries) and root vegetables such as beetroot and yam.

As this chakra is associated with the earth, and a sense of being grounded and at one with the earth we inhabit, foods which also have a symbiotic relationship with soil and earth are fantastic for cleansing and boosting this chakra’s potency. Possibly the finest example of these would be edible and medicinal mushrooms – a food which is not only packed with protein, but also comes from a food group which literally holds the soil together, nourishing it and sprouting from it at once.

The root chakra is symbolized by the red Maladhara mandala, fire and snakes and dragons and its element is earth.




Third Eye Chakra: the seat of intuition, divine wisdom and truth. Physically, the third eye chakra influences the eyes, nose, central nervous system, brain and the pituitary gland. When it’s balanced, you are able to visualize things that have not yet manifested, you have a sense of control over your life and the courage to follow your dreams. You easily connect and communicate with your spirit guides and Higher Self. You are intuitive, focused, imaginative, insightful and enlightened. You are confident in your self and your abilities, and don’t need to seek validation outside yourself. Your mental faculties are sharp, and you are finely attuned to both the reality within your mind and physical reality. When unbalanced, this chakra causes vision problems, sinus issues, headaches, nightmares, being overly analytical (dismissing intuitive guidance), confusion, psychological problems, panic attacks and depression. To balance the third eye chakra, spend time outdoors, gazing at the sky; or, with eyes closed, feel the warmth of the sun radiating through you.

It enhancing our senses and feeling of security allowing us to establish our “boundaries”. It lends a calming and peaceful air to the area in which it is placed. It balances mood swings and making us more aware of our own emotions, promoting inner peace. This stone is used to stimulate and open the body’s meridian pathway and assists the (Qi) energy to rise effortlessly. As this energy comes in contact with the Solar Plexus, it can disperse with conscious direction toward any imbalance. This is how the stone’s energy can be of assistance to disorders in all areas of the body.

The Solar Plexus is one of the major nerve ganglia, reaching out to the major organs in the body. This is also how it eventually soothes the heart and lungs. Also, with inclusions of stichtite, the energy of this stone works to attract energy to and activate the heart center and enables expansion of emotional awareness. Its affinity with the Solar Plexus Chakra assists as a protector from negative energies.

Atlantisite encourages empowerment and confidence and therefore promotes thinking with love prior to speaking. It allows more flexibility and openness of opinion and faithfulness in promises. This stone assists us in being gentle with ourselves and with others. The power behind this color is what makes this all possible.

Folk Remedies: Atlantisite is said to be a healing crystal. By empowering the solar plexus, it stimulates the heart and lungs and also helps with kidney and stomach complaints. It is also believed to relax cramps and is helpful with period pains. It is said to help unruly children modify their behavior patterns.

The seat of the immense power of the Kundalini…

(a) The energy content of this chakra is tribal power. Archetypally, the word tribe connotates group identity, group force, group will power, and group belief patterns. The first chakra is the family we are born into; ancestral patterns; DNA. It is our connection to traditional family beliefs that support the formation of identity and a sense of belonging to a group of people in a geological location. It is all about how we handle being in a group identity – we experience the power of sharing a belief and a moral code with other people. We learn how to live honorably with one another, and how to bond. We learn the truth that “All is One” through experiences connected to group dynamics . We are connected to all of life and we learn through the energy of this chakra that every choice we make and every belief we hold exerts influence on the whole of life. The first chakra deals with lessons related to the physical world – to be part of a tribe is a primal need – to be completely dependent for one’s basic needs.

(b) The first chakra grounds us – it is our root system. The root chakra takes in energy from the earth and also allows us to ground spiritual energy much as a lightning rod grounds electricity. It gives us stability. Orients us in time and space and to our 5 senses. Being sense oriented, it gives us literal, not symbolic interpretations of the world.

© It gives us The stability to let go sexually and to experience pleasure with complete abandon – to soar in ecstasy and know we can return safely.

(d) Physical energy and the will to live – joy in life – basic survival instincts – eating, sleeping, self preservation – keeps us going until we complete what we came here to do.

微笑棋牌现金版下载(e) Outer authority/mass consciousness – having an external center of gravity.

(f) The foundation of mental and emotional health.

微笑棋牌现金版下载(g) A need for logic, order, and structure (tribe/ childhood).

(h) Love manifests as learning loyalty, a code of honor, justice, and tribal support – loving our own kind. Accepting and acting accordingly to the spiritual truth that All is One. Your bond to your physical family is symbolic of your connection to everyone and all that is life. Violating this energy bond such as considering those who are different from us as being less than us, creates conflict in our spirit and therefore within our spiritual body.

(i) The ultimate lesson of the first chakra is that we must shift our faith in order to see that the only real justice is Divinely ordered, to see God’s reasoning and what happens as Divine plan, not as human punishment or tribal law – seeing our tribal circumstances as “arranged by God” to promote spiritual advancement, In order to move from human to Divine authority we must evolve beyond misperceptions that contradict the truth “All Is One”.

(j) Primary fears: fear of physical survival, abandonment by the group, loss of physical order.
