Hello Spring! Hello Nature!
During the Easter holiday, I went to farms to pick strawberries and vegetables with my 15-month-old son. Originally it was more for my son’s experience but I found it so refreshing and reviving mentally, physically and spiritually. This reminded me of how important it is to get in touch with nature to stay grounded and recharge our batteries.
In this modern world, it is so easy to be distracted by technologies or get too busy with multiple tasks and travelling. These can all contribute to a low energy root chakra. When I was doing the chakra readings at the IRIS event in March and by appointment, I found that there are quite a lot of people who have blocked first energy centre – root chakra; therefore experiencing anger, lack of focus, restlessness, insecurity or eating disorders. The Root Chakra is the most physical of our chakras. When our root chakra is open and balanced, we feel stable and able to take on life’s challenges with clear focus and a sense of purpose.
I still remember that one of the clients told me that she is a flight attendant after I read that her root chakra is blocked. She asked me what she can do as she obviously needs to be literally off the ground doing her job. Here are a few tips I can share here:
- Connecting with the earth, connecting with ourselves
It is so important to connect with the earth element to open the root chakra to a more grounded and sustainable energy flow. Nature is all around us; you can go for a hike, walk at a garden or park or even grow a plant. The key is to stop what you are doing and make a conscious decision to get back in touch with nature.
- Physical activities
The root chakra governs the quality of our physical health and feeling of aliveness in our body. Doing physical exercises especially ones with lower body movement would help heal root chakra. When you feel your vital force, you connect with the strength of root chakra energy and grounding in your life.
- Meditation and Yoga
To heal root chakra, focused meditations can also help. Since the root chakra’s element is red, you can try adding this to your meditation: picturing a red glow at the base of your spine. This glow will slowly expand, making the whole area warm and relaxed. Rest in this sensation for 3-5 minutes. Some yoga poses are linked to your root chakra’s functionality. The tree pose is one of them. Like a tree, start to feel stable to the earth by making a connection with your roots.
Whenever you sense that your root chakra might be blocked you can say these affirmations out loud. I personally like to stick our product card with affirmations (which comes with every chakra jewellery) on the mirror so I would do it every morning and night. I know some people who would carry the card in the wallet too.
Love & Gratitude,
