KUNDALINI RISING: ROOT CHAKRA

image

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.

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.

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.

微笑棋牌现金版下载The root chakra is symbolized by the red Maladhara mandala, fire and snakes and dragons and its element is earth.

KUNDALINI RISING-ROOT CHAKRA

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.

微笑棋牌现金版下载© 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.

(e) Outer authority/mass consciousness – having an external center of gravity.

(f) The foundation of mental and emotional health.

(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”.

微笑棋牌现金版下载(j) Primary fears: fear of physical survival, abandonment by the group, loss of physical order.

KUNDALINI RISING-ROOT CHAKRA

CHAKRA HEALING THROUGH HERBS

微笑棋牌现金版下载Plants have been used as medicines for thousands of years to cure various ailments, gain wisdom and to help us connect with nature. There are scripts from 2500 BC about various plants and their healing properties. In India, there are several Vedas that mention about treating diseases using herbs and plants. Plants have vibrational frequency that is in tune with our body and psyche. These vibrational qualities of plants can assist in balancing, healing and energizing the seven major chakras. The components of herbs interact with our energy system and remove toxic elements from our blood, enhance blood circulation and regulate the flow of oxygen. If one uses the herbs appropriately, one can maintain a balanced state of mind, body and spirit.

ROOT CHAKRA

The Root Chakra is located at the base of the spine. It connects us to the earth because that is where we receive all of the vital nutrients essential to our survival, and it is also where body toxins are released. The Root Chakra does not just ground us physically, it also grounds us temporally by keeping us in the present moment. An imbalanced Root Chakra can lead to problems in the legs, feet, rectum, tailbone, immune system, depression, and autoimmune deficiencies. Dandelion root tea are found to be highly effective in the treatment of depression, gallbladder or high blood pressure. Adding in foods like: carrots, potatoes, parsnips, radishes, onions and garlic, and anything else that roots itself, can have a soothing effect for our Root Chakra.

CHAKRAS AND ASTROLOGY….THE CONNECTION

ROOT CHAKRA

Muladhara

The Root Chakra’s element is Earth and is governed by the planet Saturn. The Zodiac signs associated with the Root Chakra are Capricorn and Aquarius微笑棋牌现金版下载. Psychologically, it concerns one’s relationship with the material plane, and the principle of limitation in both its constructive and destructive aspects. In its more unbalanced expression, it governs the drive for survival, as well as such states as greed, fear, obsessive/compulsiveness and protectiveness. Its more balance expression points to such qualities as practicality and lessons related to the material world.

ROOT CHAKRA (MULADHARA)

Special Notes: This chakra, the first, is the slowest vibrating chakra of the seven major ones. Because of this, this will be the first layer of the aura that a person will see when they start to do energy work, such as healing. This is the chakra most linked with the physical body since its vibration is the closest to the physical shell.

Because of its location and connection to the gonads, there is a link to fertility, sex drive, and instincts. When this chakra is balanced, we are able to give and receive fulfilling physical and sexual pleasure. Ịf this chakra becomes blocked for a woman, she may not be able to acquire an orgasm, find intercourse painful, or may be sexually frigid. If this chakra becomes blocked (or in some instances too open) for a man, he may suffer premature ejaculation (too open) or the inability to achieve an erection (blocked).

Since the Root Chakra is closely linked to the physical, it is related to how grounded we are on this plane. If this chakra is healthy, we are centered and have a strong will to live. If it is closed or blocked, our physical energies are low, our vitality is weak, and we more than likely will avoid physical activity.

A-Z GEMSTONES

OBSIDIAN

Obsidian Gemstone Meaning:

With its glassy luster, obsidian is a distinctive stone. Obsidian 微笑棋牌现金版下载is formed as lava from volcanic eruptions cools within the earth. The speed at which it cools prevents crystallization and the rock forms as solid volcanic glass.

Although its most common color is black, obsidian can also be found in light brown, brown mottled with black, and black with a beautiful golden or silvery sheen. Snowflake Obsidian is dotted with white patches where parts of the rock have begun to crystallize. The most prized obsidian by gemologists is the Rainbow Obsidian variety with purple, green and gold bands of sheen.

Obsidian 微笑棋牌现金版下载was revered by ancient cultures. It was one of the major barter materials, and prized for its ability to be worked to razor-sharp edges for arrows and spears. It has been used since prehistoric times for making tools, masks, weapons, mirrors and jewelry.

Healing Properties of Obsidian:

Obsidian helps to protect the very sensitive against depression. It is the stone of the soft hearted and gentle people of the world. Use obsidian 微笑棋牌现金版下载to help block negativity of any kind. As a black gemstone, it symbolizes self control and resilience. Black stones have protective energies in the sense that black is the absence of light, and therefore, can be used to create invisibility.

Sources of Obsidian:

Obsidian can be found anywhere that volcanic activity has occurred. Some of its important sources today are South America, Japan, Mexico, Afghanistan, and parts of the United States. The San Carlos Apache Reservation in Arizona, United States, produces an interesting banded variety of obsidian known as “Apache Tears”.
