THE FIRST CHAKRA
What I like about the chakras is that they are easy to memorize because the go from the bottom to the top (base of the spine to the crown of the head) and are the same colors of the rainbow - if you ever memorized the acronym “ROYGBIV” for Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet. The chakras are located along the spine and start at the base of the spine, hence the name Base, or Root Chakra. It is called the Muladhara Chakra in Sanskrit, the traditional Indian language.
The first chakra is located at the base of the spine, is the color red and associated with the element of earth and the predominant energy here is support and grounding. The chakra connects us with our physical world.
When this chakras is balanced we feel: • Supported
• Deep connection with environment and humanity
• Moving forward in life
When this chakra is out of balance we may feel: • Stuck
• Low back pain
• Vericose Veins
• Constipation or diarrhea
• Fertility issues
• Depressed or anxious
There are many essential oils to balance the Root Chakra (and all of the chakras). Different resources will have different oils.
Here are a few common oils for the Root Chakra: • Patchouli
• Vetiver *(too thick to diffuse, may clog diffuser)
For the Root Chakra, these oils can be rubbed topically along the spine (with a carrier oil if needed), on the soles of the feet, inhaled from the hands, taken internally if recommended or diffused.
Healing Crystals for the First Chakra: • Red Jasper
• Black or Snowflake Obsidian
• Smoky Quartz
These healing crystals can be placed in your pockets, under your bed, in your car or in your home to help your root chakra come back into balance.
Other fun ways to balance the Root Chakra: • Wearing red clothes
• Eating red foods
• Chanting the sound: "LAM"
