Root Down to Reach Radiant Heights

The root chakra is located at the base of your spine and includes the pelvic floor as well as the first three vertebrae. Muladhara is responsible for your feelings of safety and security as you go through life. The word Muladhara breaks down into two Sanskrit words: Mula meaning “root” and Adhara, which means “support” or “base.”

Root Chakra meditation is a great way to promote harmony and balance during the first few days of a cleanse, or at any time you feel like you could use some balance in your life.

Balancing this important chakra creates a solid foundation for you when building health, wellness and connecting to your mind, body and spirit. When you ground yourself within what helps you daily and motivates you in life you will feel grounded and safe meaning that you will worry a little less in daily life.

Balancing root chakra is essential in getting rid of anxiety, depression and leading a more healthy lifestyle. Being unbalanced can manifest in the form of nightmares and even various types of body pain, like lower leg and back pain.

It's possible to gently encourage your root chakra out of a state of imbalance. Here are a couple of simple ways you can do this:

Try Tree Pose

To get started, grab your yoga mat. Stand up straight in Tadasana, then bend your right knee.

Reach down and gently take hold of your right ankle and pull your foot up and tuck it into your inner left thigh.

Place your hand on your hips and focus on your balance by resting your gaze on a still point in front of you.

Tree Pose is a great asana for opening the hips and really finding a balance that grounds you.

Root Chakra Meditation

You can also do a simple meditation in Lotus Pose to bring your root chakra back to balance using Tibetan Singing Bowls.

A meditation involving Tibetan Singing Bowls with C Notes are also a great way to connect your Root Chakra on an even deeper level. Singing Bowls are meant to enhance balance in your life and promote healing or relaxation. They have a very unique resonating ability, and are world renowned for their harmony in meditation.

If you don’t have a Tibetan Singing Bowl you can use a video on YouTube to meditate with on the fly!

No matter how you want to connect with your root chakra and rebalance, do it alone. This is a time when your body, mind and spirit need to be one with one another in a quiet room with zero distractions.
