Have you heard of the root chakra or Muladhara? It is the foundation of your energy system and offers the potential for true spiritual growth. In ordinary people, the root chakra is most of the time clogged, so root chakra healing is extremely important.
I will give you below what I found over many years of researching prana energies and chakras including the root chakra. Some of my findings are as in the spiritual traditions you know, while others do not, and come from my direct spiritual and energy practice.
By unlocking the root chakra healing powers and learning how to balance them through meditation and meditation practices you can experience healing and life transformation.
Understand the Root Chakra
Unlocking the power of your root chakra is essential for spiritual growth. This ancient energy center is responsible for grounding us and helping us access our inner strength, clarity, and understanding. With the right tools and guidance, opening up this powerful chakra can bring about powerful energies and help you manifest a greater sense of purpose in life.
To unlock and heal your root chakra, it’s important to first understand what it is and how it works. The root chakra, also known as Muladhara, is located at the base of your spine and is connected to the earth element. It symbolizes stability, security, grounding, and survival energy. When this energy center is open and balanced, we can connect more deeply with Earth’s energies, with our intuition, and manifest our intentions.
Hindu traditions and yoga think that kundalini energy residing in the root chakra is some mysterious life force. I found that this lifeforce is not mysterious at all, and actually is Earth’s energy.
Root chakra energies
My research showed that the root chakra is the input gate for Earth’s energy to enter our bodies. It works in a low percentage for humans since the root chakra is open just like 4-5% in average human bodies since they are in a 3D vibration only, where 3D means the Dimension of vibration or chakra scale. Higher chakras (chakras 2 to 7) have generally a higher opening percentage, but they are mainly fed through the root chakra anyway.
Kundalini is Earth’s energy mirroring into our bodies and thus ensuring our body organs are correctly fed with the appropriate energy besides the ones we get from eating and drinking. The energy we get from eating and drinking corresponds to lower vibrations, while the energy/prana/chi coming directly from Earth (kundalini) corresponds to higher vibrations and is able to feed also the higher energy fields of our body.
Practice Meditation and Visualization Exercises
Practicing meditation and visualization exercises is one of the best ways to unlock your root chakra for beginners. Meditation will help you to relax and connect with your body and inner self, while visualizations can bring awareness to this energy center.
For instance, a simple exercise for beginners is to start by visualizing a spinning wheel of red light at the base of your spine when you practice meditation. Visualize the wheel slowly opening up – as it does, feel a profound connection to Mother Earth.
Unlocking Root Chakra for Spiritual Development and Growth
One of the most effective ways to heal and balance your root chakra is by connecting to the grounding energy of Earth. Unlocking the root chakra is an essential step in spiritual growth.
To do this, do the following:
Find a comfortable seated position and take a few deep breaths.
Visualize roots growing from your root chakra down through your feet and further into the ground, and feel connected to the powerful, nourishing energy of Mother Earth.
Allow yourself to receive her loving healing energy up into your body.
Stay here for as long as you like, focusing on your breath and grounding energy.
Perform Grounding Activities to Balance the Root Chakra
To achieve balance in your root chakra, it's important to focus on grounding activities – activities that help to develop a sense of connection to the Earth. These activities may include physical exercise, walking in nature, self-massage with stones or crystals, and grounding yoga poses like mountain pose or tree pose.
Connecting to the elements that make up the physical world can help connect you to spiritual energies and deepen your understanding of your purpose and personal strengths.
To further balance your root chakra, participate in grounding and balancing physical activities. Qigong, Taiichi, and yoga are excellent choices for increasing the strength of your root chakra energy. Choose poses like mountain pose, standing forward bend, extended side angle, and child’s pose to help you connect to the Earth's energies. It's always a bad idea to try open a chakra more without considering chakra balancing, since all chakras work in unity and not separate as some think
Other activities like gardening and taking walks in nature are great ways to keep your root chakra balanced as well.
Feed the Root Chakra with Earthy Colors, Foods, and Sounds
Eating the right foods can help support and balance the root chakra. Foods such as beets, carrots, potatoes, dark leafy greens, nuts, and dark berries all help ground and open the root chakra by providing nourishment from the Earth.
Additionally, using earthy colors like red, black, and brown in your environment can also help activate your root chakra and allow for a greater sense of connection. Incorporating grounding sounds such as singing bowls or low monotone chanting can further awaken this energy center for greater spiritual growth.
