1st Chakra: Courage
|In my last post we discussed the chakras in broad terms; wheels of energy where our inner channels cross. Now that we have a basic understanding of what they are in general and how they effect our well being, let’s dive a little deeper and discuss the individual properties of each chakra.|
Starting with the root chakra or the Muladhara chakra. This 1st chakra lies at the base of the spine and is the main source of our sense of stability and security. When life is out of control and our most fundamental needs aren’t being met a balanced root chakra allows us to stand firm in the face of adversity and weather the storm.
A lack of balance in the root chakra can manifest itself as issues with the legs, feet and eliminatory organs. The root chakra is our foundation and if it becomes compromised then our entire journey becomes unstable.
|Our yoga practice provides us with the opportunity to find the balance required for the strong foundation needed to carry us through this life. Paying attention to our breath, rooting down through our limbs more firmly and addressing and reflecting on what our wants and needs are help to awaken the energy within the root chakra.|
Blocked energy of the root chakra can manifest itself in many ways, both physically and emotionally: Fatigue, Anxiety and Depression, Digestion and Elimination Problems and even musculoskeletal Problems. Help balance and heal with some of my top recommended products
