Chakra Sunday! – The Root Chakra

It’s Chakra Sunday! …Paying a little attention to your chakras is a vital way to connect with yourself and bring some balance to your mind, body, and spirit.

I’m going to start with the Root Chakra, at the base of the spine, simply because it’s considered the first of the seven chakras and it’s related to grounding. It’s Sunday evening, tomorrow is Monday and we’re so often run ragged in preparation for the new week ahead…Who doesn’t need a little grounding when we feel like this?

Sit comfortably, take a few deep breaths and with each exhale feel yourself become more and more rooted to the spot. Say the following (either aloud or to yourself), as many times as you like or feel you need;

“I am safe. I am secure. I am grounded. I am exactly where I need to be. I have everything I need. I release fear and embrace trust.”

The Root Chakra is represented by the colour red. It can help to visualise this colour, wear it, even eat it (red apples, tomatoes, strawberries…you get the idea) and if you’re at all into your Crystals, try holding a piece of Hematite, Carnelian, Red Jasper, or Smokey Quartz.

If the Root Chakra is blocked, or unbalanced, we can feel fearful, disconnected, and lacking in energy. It can cause problems with the digestive system, the immune system, and create pains in the feet and legs.

Now the weather is warming up, go outside and sit on the grass, it’s the perfect place for this Earth Element Chakra 🙂

Love your chakras, folks! xxx
