New Life Experiences Trigger an Imbalance in the Root Chakra
My cousin Jacqueline recently called me to talk about the changes in her life. A few months ago, she moved from Wisconsin to Arizona for her husband’s job. Jacqueline herself was having trouble finding a new job as a landscape architect; the lnadscape of Arizona was as foreign to her as the moon. Although she liked their new city and state, her new home was unfamiliar, she missed her friends in Wisconsin, she worried about adapting to the new climate and landscape, and finding work. She was so fraught with worry, she was actually making herself physically ill.
Jacqueline consulted a therapist, and her new family doctor, and each treated her problems as having a separate root cause, but looking through the lens of the chakra system, I was able to see the common root cause in Jacqueline’s issues. More importantly, I was able to suggest sound healing and meditation practices I was sure could support Jacqueline in facing each of her life challenges.
Jacqueline’s symptoms sounded like a root chakra imbalance. The recent changes in her life presented her with classic root chakra challenges, involving survival, a sense of groundedness, caring for and cleansing the body. Life changes that “pull up our roots” cause a root chakra imbalance. Traveling, fearfulness about family and finances, some people don’t need dramatic life changes to become imbalanced in the root chakra; these people live more in their heads than in their bodies, and feel ungrounded most of the time.
We experience imbalances in the root chakra when we experience when we perceive a survival crisis. To help Jacqueline feel more grounded, I had her focus on her feet, rolling a tennis ball underneath one foot, and then the other, pressing into it to help open the chakras in the feet, and stimulate the accupressure points in the feet. Once relaxed, Jacqueline put on a pair of headphones, for a 27 minute session of deeply relaxing binaural beat Solfeggio tones, attuned to the root chakra. This calmed her overactive mind, and gently encouraged her energy to reset to a more balanced state. By the end of the session, Jacqueline no longer felt so worried about her new life situation, she felt more at home in her body, and well as her new environment, and more prepared for the challenges she faced.
Addressing the energetic imbalances we experience in our chakras quickly and efficiently, can help us to succeed in overcoming the blockages which face us in our day to day experience.
The Root Chakra influences your physical vitality, physical survival instincts, “fight or flight” response, and the emotions of anger, jealousy, desire and greed. The Muladhara or Root Chakra governs the lessons of surviving the material world. This Chakra holds information involving family loyalty, superstitions and beliefs, and your ability to stand up for yourself; your sense of safety, self esteem, and security are based here. The Root Chakra controls the energy of instincts, physical pain, pleasure, and touch. Imbalance in the Muladhara may manifest as losing interest in survival in the “real world”, physical addictions and obsessions, selfishness, restlessness, volatile emotions and a lack of vitality.
The “Muladhara” is situated at the root of the spine. It is the Chakra closest to the Earth, and can be used to ground yourself to Mother Earth, and “release” all that negativity, and recharge yourself!
The Root Chakra color is red, other colors are brown, black and gray. It is the source of the Etheric layer of the aura, which is associated with awareness of the physical body, and physical survival. It is the layer closest to the body, and densest in texture. It can sometimes be seen as a sort of grayish “heat wave” 2-3 inches around the body. It anchors the aura to the physical body.
A simple, inexpensive crystal, charm, or piece of Chakra jewelry can help you ground yourself, and keep your peace. Gemstones such as bloodstone, hematite, labodorite, garnet, ruby, black tourmaline, onyx, fire agate, star ruby smoky quartz, and red jasper are helpful in Root Chakra balancing.
Using Chakra fragrance oils is a beautiful way to stay grounded and energized. Essential oils and flower essences useful for Root Chakra balance are rosemary, ylang-ylang, frankincense, myrrh, benzoin, patchouli, sandalwood, corn and clematis.
Foods that fuel and foster the Root Chakra are root vegetables like potatoes, carrots, onions, garlic, parsnips, radishes, beets, and protein rich foods such as meat, eggs, beans, peanut butter, tofu and soy products, and hot spices such cayenne, and pepper, horseradish, hot paprika, and chives.
By far, the easiest, fastest, and most effective way to release the frustrating problems caused by energy blockages in the Root Chakra is through sound; sound is a very direct, vibrational energy, immediately felt and responded to by the body. Simply put on a pair of headphones, close your eyes, and relax for 27 minutes. The Alpha Level Binaural Beats work to release your fears, frustrations, and negativity, so you don’t have to! This MP3 features Tibetan Singing Bowls, and the Binaural Beats use the deepest Solfeggio frequency of 396 Hz. The meditation progresses along Earth Resonance frequencies to a low of 7.83 Hz, then back up to an Earth Resonant frequency of 14.1 Hz. This deeply relaxing and releasing sound healing will not only aid in Muladhara balance, it will also aid in balancing your mind and spirit to the frequencies of Gaia, our Mother Earth.
