The Root chakra, known as the first chakra is the most physical chakra. Any activity that makes us more aware of the body strengthens this chakra.
Muldahara means the foundation. The word Muladhara comes from two Sanskrit words: Mula meaning “root” and Adhara, which means “support”.
If our energies are dominant in our root chakra food and sleep will be two major qualities in our life. This also particularly goes for physical activity including sports, walking and yoga.
When our root chakra is open, we feel grounded, stable and secure.
When our root chakra is closed there are tendencies in our body experienced as nervousness, fearfulness and we easily get obsessed with being secure and resist change.
How to open our root chakra?
There are many ways that can help us for opening our root chakra.
One of them is walking with bare foot on earth. When we are in direct contact with the ground the electrons are conducted to our body and it brings it to the same electrical potential as the earth itself.
From the ancient times through history humans have walked with the bare foot on the ground which naturally discharges us and prevents the building up of electrical stress. Lying in the ground also helps; touching our fore head on the ground also works. The music helps to stimulate our root chakra. The music calms our energy. Our ability to experience different dimensions of life moves to one area of life to another.
To ground ourselves with the earth our connection with the mother nature help us the best for getting off from our mental and emotional clouds that take our energy the most when are thinking too much and then we experience the feelings of our thoughts which often it drains us and makes us so tired. Being in contact with our mother earth is very natural for all of us. Because she is a living being which is not different from our essential inner being.
When we focus back to our physical dimension we become connected with the earth itself and its frequency. We allow energy to move through our root chakra and we allow ourselves to be fully present here with our physical body. When we have suffered in the past we tend to frequently go back to the past in our minds. Grounding pulls us out of this traumatic experiences into the stability of the present moment.
Bringing the attention to the present moment is grounding our frequency.
There are two different dimensions of life. One is leading us to self-preservation another is leading us to the longing to go beyond. In our head and heart we have longings to go beyond but in our body we have longings to preserve. All our survival is in the lower three chakras.
It is also said that our root chakra connects us with the spiritual energies of our ancestors so, our responsibility as living beings is to bring to light that which is unconscious within us because in the clarity of understanding lies the greatest secret of the wisest ones.
Our chakras are all connected to each other so with changing the balance in one chakra we make a way for change in another chakra.
