KUNDALINI RISING: ROOT CHAKRA

image

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.

微笑棋牌现金版下载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.

微笑棋牌现金版下载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.

微笑棋牌现金版下载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.

Kunzite increases self-esteem and helps one to  feel loved, supported and able to handle stressful situations.  This stone works best on the Heart chakra.  Physically, Kunzite can help with symptoms of neuralgia, epilepsy, sciatica, blurred vision and trouble hearing.

This Stone aids in healing sciatica and neuropathy.  Many people use, carry, or wear it to relieve chronic exhaustion. It is also commonly used for the creation and manifestation of goals, and is believed to be particularly helpful for creativity and abundance. Green tourmaline helps us to see with eyes of love.

ASANA POSES FOR SCIATICA

SAGE’S POSE (MARICHYASANA III)

Sit in Dandanasa (Staff Pose), then bend your right knee and put the foot on the floor, with the heel as close to the right sitting bone as possible. Keep the left leg strong and rotated slightly inward; ground the head of the thigh bone into the floor. Press the back of the left heel and the base of the big toe away from the pelvis. Also press the inner right foot actively into the floor, but soften the inner right groin to receive the pubis as you twist. Grounding the straight-leg thigh and bent-knee foot will help you lengthen your spine, which is always the first prerequisite of a successful twist.

微笑棋牌现金版下载With an exhalation, rotate your torso to the right and wrap your left arm around the right thigh. Hold the outer thigh with your left hand, then pull the thigh up as you release the right hip toward the floor. Press your right fingertips onto the floor just behind your pelvis to lift the torso slightly up and forward.

微笑棋牌现金版下载Remember to keep your straight leg and bent-knee foot grounded. Sink the inner right groin deeper into the pelvis, then lengthen your front belly up out of the groin along the inner right thigh. Continue lengthening the spine with each inhalation, and twist a little more with each exhalation. Hug the thigh to your belly, then lean back against your shoulder blades into an upper-back backbend. Gently turn your head to the right to complete the twist in your cervical spine.

Stay in the pose for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Then release with an exhalation, reverse the legs and twist to the left for an equal length of time.

FIRE LOG POSE (AGNISTAMBHASANA)

Sit on one edge of a thickly-folded blanket, knees bent, feet on the floor. Lightly shrug your shoulders up, strongly roll the heads of your upper arm bones back, and press the bottom tips of your shoulder blades into your back.

Slide your left foot under your right leg to the outside of your right hip, and lay the outer leg on the floor. Then, stack your right leg on top of the left. Be sure the right ankle is outside the left knee (so the sole is perpendicular to the floor).

微笑棋牌现金版下载If you have more flexibility in the hips, you can slide your left shin forward directly below the right to increase the challenge; otherwise, keep the left heel beside the right hip. If you’re tight in the hips, you may find that bringing the ankle to the outer knee is difficult or uncomfortable. In this case, simply sit with your shins crossed in Sukhasana (Easy Pose).

Press through your heels and spread your toes. Keeping your front torso long, exhale and fold forward from your groins. Be sure not to round forward from your belly: Keep the space between your pubis and navel long. Lay your hands on the floor in front of your shins.

微笑棋牌现金版下载As you inhale, notice how your torso rises slightly; when it does, lengthen from your pubis to your sternum. Then on the next exhalation, fold deeper.

Hold 1 minute or more. Inhale the torso upright and uncross your legs to come out of the pose. Repeat for the same length of time with the left leg on top.

BOUND ANGLE POSE (Baddha Konasana)

Sit with your legs straight out in front of you, raising your pelvis on a blanket if your hips or groins are tight. Exhale, bend your knees, pull your heels toward your pelvis, then drop your knees out to the sides and press the soles of your feet together.

Bring your heels as close to your pelvis as you comfortably can. With the first and second finger and thumb, grasp the big toe of each foot. Always keep the outer edges of the feet firmly on the floor. If it isn’t possible to hold the toes, clasp each hand around the same-side ankle or shin.

微笑棋牌现金版下载Sit so that the pubis in front and the tailbone in back are equidistant from the floor. The perineum then will be approximately parallel to the floor and the pelvis in a neutral position. Firm the sacrum and shoulder blades against the back and lengthen the front torso through the top of the sternum.

Never force your knees down. Instead release the heads of the thigh bones toward the floor. When this action leads, the knees follow.

Stay in this pose anywhere from 1 to 5 minutes. Then inhale, lift your knees away from the floor, and extend the legs back to their original position.

BRIDGE POSE (Setu Bandha Sarvangasana)

Lie supine on the floor, and if necessary, place a thickly folded blanket under your shoulders to protect your neck. Bend your knees and set your feet on the floor, heels as close to the sitting bones as possible.

Exhale and, pressing your inner feet and arms actively into the floor, push your tailbone upward toward the pubis, firming (but not hardening) the buttocks, and lift the buttocks off the floor. Keep your thighs and inner feet parallel. Clasp the hands below your pelvis and extend through the arms to help you stay on the tops of your shoulders.

微笑棋牌现金版下载Lift your buttocks until the thighs are about parallel to the floor. Keep your knees directly over the heels, but push them forward, away from the hips, and lengthen the tailbone toward the backs of the knees. Lift the pubis toward the navel.

Lift your chin slightly away from the sternum and, firming the shoulder blades against your back, press the top of the sternum toward the chin. Firm the outer arms, broaden the shoulder blades, and try to lift the space between them at the base of the neck (where it’s resting on the blanket) up into the torso.

Stay in the pose anywhere from 30 seconds to 1 minute. Release with an exhalation, rolling the spine slowly down onto the floor.

CRYSTAL HEALING FOR MUSCLE PAIN

CHRYSOCOLLA treats arthritis, bone disease and muscle spasms.

AMAZONITE relieves muscle spasms. It is helpful in cell regeneration and healing after trauma or injury and is an excellent stone to use for gout and arthritis.

ASANA POSES FOR MUSCLE PAIN

Cow-Face Pose
This pose helps protect the body from soreness and the lower back from painful spasms. It releases tightness in the IT band, on the outer thigh, which helps protect the low back while opening the pelvis and the chest.
微笑棋牌现金版下载Start by kneeling. Bring your left leg forward, wrapping it around your right knee toward the right hip as far as it will comfortably go. Then, spread your feet, drawing them forward and as wide apart as feels comfortable for you. Slowly sit back, placing your hips between both of your feet. Grab the top of your left knee and gently bring it toward your chest. Sit up and lift your chest open. Take deep breaths, breathing in and out through your nose. Hold this for about 3 minutes (longer if you’re more advanced). Repeat, switching sides.

Sphinx Pose
For sore muscles in the low back region, one of the best yoga poses to follow cow-face pose (gomukhasana) is sphinx. You can hold this modified cobra pose longer than the full version. And that helps draw blood supply to the back, which allows the muscles to fully relax.微笑棋牌现金版下载 Lie face down with your feet turned in slightly and your elbows on the floor directly under your shoulders. Align your forearms parallel to each other, palms facing down, and fingers spread. From this position begin to lift your chest up by pressing down through your tailbone as you lift your head, then your chest off the floor, keeping your forearms on the floor. (Be sure to use your back muscles to pull yourself up instead of pushing up with your arms.) Breathe deeply, inhaling and exhaling through your nose. Hold this position for 2 to 3 minutes.
