Hopefully you’re all practicing the meditations from last week (you can find them here) since I will be building off of them in the future!
As I mentioned previously, we have many Chakras in the body, but this week we are focusing on the Seven Meridian Chakras & the Soul Chakra.
If you missed that other blog you can go back and read it now!
The Root Chakra, or Muladhara in Sanskrit, is the first of the Meridian Chakras.
Located at the base of the spine, near the tip of the tailbone
Its corresponding body parts are the perineum, the first 3 vertebrae and the pelvic plexus.
This particular Chakra energy is that of the Earth, and is connected with grounding and security.
Muladhara lays the foundation for the expansion of your life
Our Root Chakra lays the bedrock for the rest of the Chakras, which are above it!
Red is the corresponding color for this Chakra and it is portrayed as a four-leafed lotus flower.
Muladhara is associated with anything that brings stability into your life & letting go of fear.
The physical state of being is associated to the Root Chakra, as well as overall survival
When the Root is in harmony you will feel secure, safe, energetic, confident, & content.
If out of balance we will be subject to such negative feelings as depression, anxiety, arrogance, fear and low self-confidence.
Our Root Chakra is the foundation and base for the rest of the Meridian or Principle Chakras, & it is our connection to the Earth Mother, so if it is weakened or imbalanced we don’t have a strong foundation and will feel like we are tumbling.
This is why we start with this particular Chakra for healing & in meditation!
Keep your base strong and focused!
Svadhisthana is the Sanskrit word for our Sacral Chakra, the Second Principle Chakra
This Chakra is located near the naval & lumbar vertebrae
It corresponds with reproductive organs, the bladder, our bowels and lower intestines
Through the water energy of our Sacral Chakra we are connected to the world around us and it is associated with emotional health, creativity & expression!
(think of how the belly button was the umbilical cord that connected us to our mother in the womb)
Svadhisthana allows us to feel & experience the world around us
People who are Empaths or Empathic often time have trouble with this particular Chakra, my Yoga Instructor calls it the bodies “junk drawer”
Orange is the color of the Sacral Chakra & Svadhisthana is portrayed as a six-leaf lotus flower.
Svadhisthana is associated with feelings of sexuality, creativity and fantasies, as well as the healthy expression of these things
Our Sacral Chakra is closely connected with our emotional well-being
When this particular Meridian Chakra is in harmony you feel light & happy, creative and expressive, you will feel comfortable sexually & open to feeling emotions and working through them.
If imbalanced you will experience boredom, feel uninspired, low sex drive, addictive behaviors, be resistant to change and could experience bladder/urinary issues, reproductive issues (painful menstruation for women) and even increased allergies!
The Sacral Chakra is both very human in nature, but also very divine; it is the perfect union of our human nature (emotions, sexuality & feeling) and our inner divinity (joy, peace & calm).
When we keep Svadhisthana aligned we are helping to keep our entire being in balance!
Balance your current life with your past lives and higher self!
At the end of this week I will be giving you a meditation, that builds off last Fridays, that teaches us to work with & strengthen each Chakra!
These energy points are like muscles, the more we work with them the stronger they become & the more they can do for us.
Healthy Chakras keep our Four Bodies balanced and in Harmony and make for a much smoother experience & life!
