September Focus of the Month ~ Muladhara Chakra

IMG_3854The Chakras are invisable energy centers that align from the base of the spine to the crown of the head. There are 7 basic Chakras.   The chakras are similair to emotions whereas we cannot see them but we know that they are there.  We can think and meditate upon the chakras to affirm and connect with our subtle body.

 

The Muladhara Chakra ~ The root energy vortex at the base of the spine is responsible for grounding and stabilization.  It allows us to be in the here and now.  I AM. Without this grounding we lose our center, we are unstable and easily swept off our feet and have a tendency to live in a dream world.  Although, this may sound tempting, almost inviting and seem like a nice escape from our daily busy lives we can find ourselves feeling lost or not rooted or unstable.  Perhaps dizzy, flightly or seemingly uncaring may be considered when not grounded.

Exploring the Muladhara Chakra ~

Sitting up in a comfortable position with the spine long and lengthened following the natural flow of your breath. Begin to breath deeply and inhale fully relaxing the belly.  Slowly exhale, releasing your breath completely. Gently draw your navel to your spine and bring your attention to your pelvic floor.  Continue breathing in this way focusing on lengthening the exhalation and contracting the perinium at the end of the breath. This is the area of Muladhara Chakra.  In this grounding exploration we feel close to the earth.  When we are close to the earth we cannot fall.  We embrace stillness, solidity and clarity.  We know where we stand and it feels safe and secure.  Allow yourself to become familiar with this area as it anchors and nourishes the body mind and spirit.

 

The Muladhara Chakra is located at the base of the Spine.

The root chakra is associated with the color red.

The function of this energy is survival and grounding.

The understanding of this chakra is “ to be here” and “to have”.  I AM.

The element of this vortex is the Earth.
