Base Chakra

rootThe base Charka is located at the base of the spine and is responsible for your sense of safety and security. We all have basic survival needs.  Whether it’s to be loved, to have a roof over our heads, having health, food, or even money to pay the bills, each one plays an important role in whether we have peace of mind or not.

When our personal safety is challenged we get scared.  We can no longer think straight nor act effectively.  All of our energy drains out of us and we feel paralyzed.

The base chakra is where you’ll feel whether or not you’re secure in any given relationship.  Look for that wonderful sense of feeling grounded and connected to the earth, your immediate surroundings and what’s going on in the present moment while interacting with another.

Your Energy Tip of the Month: Take an honest look at the need (or needs) that currently unnerves you and makes you feel uncomfortable, because that’s where you lose energy. Once you identify the need, take consistent little steps to make it better.  Each step will build your energy towards getting peace of mind.

Often when we are confused, over-stimulated, and don’t know where to turn… we start closing in on ourselves. We feel the earth is moving like quicksand and we’re drowning in it. We don’t

You can practice being aware of your base chakra by breathing the colour red in and out, up and down through your perineum located between your seat bones.  Imagine that you can feel the energy flowing in and out of that vital spot.  If you feel physical strength and ready to interact with others you’ll know you’ve opened the chakra and created energy flow.
