Welcome to the Blog series for Chakras!
In this series we go through the Chakras (Energetic Wheels) from "Ground to Up"
Muladhara - The Root Chakra
One of its mantras: My path is revealed to me Root chakra: Mula meaning root and Adhara meaning support or base Location: Base of the spine / pelvic floor region Vibration/resonance: LAM Colour: Red Element: Earth Sense: Olfactory / smell
Muladhara is the first of seven chakras which run upwards along the spine all the way to the crown of the head. It is our connection to our vehicle in this world: our physical body and everything to do with our origins (roots) and our basic needs.
There lies kundalini, powerful but often dormant spiritual energy or internal potential. When this chakra is balanced, the energy flows downward (earth connection) and upward (towards more spiritual realms) freely, creating a deep sense of security and stability with who we truly are.
Muladhara is the foundation upon which the opening of the remaining chakras is based.
On a physical level it relates to the skeletal system (backbone and joints) and lower limbs. Also, through its color, it has some connection to blood, as in family blood.
Yoga poses: Adho Mukha Svanasana (downward-facing dog), Vrksasana (tree pose), Utkatasana (chair or fierce pose).
Long savasanas can be quite healing for this chakra through the connection to Prithvi (The energy of the Earth).
Some essential oils to stimulate Muladhara: ginger, thyme, basil, sage, patchouli, vetiver, sandalwood
Prithvi (Earth) Mudra: join thumb (Agni / Fire) with a ring finger (Prithvi / Earth)
It's Yoga "Living in A Question"
How I'm standing in my own life? Do I feel centered? Do I feel grounded?
Do I stand fully on my own two feet? Do I trust life, myself, others?
Are these steps taking me where I want to be in life?
