CRYSTALS: Red Jasper–a very calming stone that slowly softly stimulates the Root Chakra. Many Native American cultures consider Red Jasper to symbolize the blood of the Earth.  A gentle stone, Red Jasper works slowly but surely, and is a good stone to ground anyone overly sensitive to crystalline energy. Red Jasper aids in resolving difficult situations and can be used to ground and stabilize your AURA….

SUNDAY correlates with the BASE RED ROOT CHAKRA

BASE CONNECTION:
Grounding to feel Connected to Earth Energies
Feel Healthy and Vibrant–caching the VIBES–with Unlimited Physical Energy
The Root Chakra concerns your core needs for survival, security, and livelihood.
When your Root Chakra is unbalanced, you may feel ungrounded, confused, and lack the ability to move forward. Without a balanced Root Chakra, it is impossible to achieve balance with the other Chakras.  Feels the VIBES and let that RED ENERGY center twirl!

The Root Chakra is located at the base of the spine and its color is red. It has the lowest vibration and is the slowest of wavelength, and so is most closely associated with our physical body and physical energies. The Hindu depiction of this chakra is the four-petalled lotus. Four is the number related to the four elements, the four directions, and the square. Esoterically, four represents the manifested world and incarnation into this space/time. Four also can represent a strong foundation, solidity, and stability, as in four walls, four legs, etc. Accordingly, the Earth Element is associated with the Root Chakra, as well as the Mineral Kingdom, our sense of smell, and the adrenal glands.

The Root Chakra is the Center of Grounding – our connection to Earth energies. It rules our survival consciousness and represents our deepest unconscious and most primitive/animal self.

It also governs our physical energy and vitality, survival, basic instincts, our feelings of security and safety, familial beliefs, heredity, jobs, money, and our home.

The Root Chakra is also the basis of our masculine and feminine energies. It represents our masculine will and the male sexual organs as well as the feminine energy of the Goddess Kundalini. Therefore, a man can learn to integrate his feminine power and a woman can learn to integrate her masculine power through the clearing and opening of this chakra.

When the Root Chakra energy is in balance, you are centered, grounded, healthy and vibrant, with unlimited physical energy. You love your body and love to use it and take care of it. You feel secure in your life and display not only good common sense, but you have the ability to easily manifest abundance. If your Root Chakra is out of balance with excessive energy, you may be domineering, greedy, sadistic, and judgmental with strong biased opinions. If this chakra is blocked, you may lack confidence, have low energy, be spacey, be unable to manifest and achieve goals, feel unworthy, unloved, fearful, and insecure. A deficit of energy through the Root Chakra may also manifest as addictions to food, drugs, or material possessions, low immunity, and pain in the lower back, legs, and feet. (This would not be the cause of ALL back pain but just one manifestation of low root chakra manifestation)

In addition to the chakra clearing and balancing meditation, there are several ways that you can focus your energy and intention on balancing and clearing the Root Chakra. Connect with Earth Energy: walk outside barefoot, spend time in nature, hug a tree, work in the soil, garden.

Also, enjoy your physical body – engage in physical activity and be present now – experience your body using your physical senses. Eat root vegetables. Immerse your sense of smell in the scents of Balsam fir, patchouli, cedarwood, sandalwood, musk. Surround yourself with gems that vibrate at the same level as the Root Chakra – ruby, garnet, bloodstone, red jasper, black tourmaline, obsidian, and hematite (my personal favorite for grounding!). Know that you are more powerful than you can even begin to imagine, you are Spirit in Matter, and like the Tree, when you are firmly grounded in the Earth, you are free to reach far into the sky.

SOUNDS:  Search for a ‘Meditation Music for Root Chakra’ if you like o meditate with the vibrations of the chakra.  One I found is https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=xtdvBz_kUsw.   -“Thirty Minute Root Chakra Meditation-‘The Rigt to Feel Secure and Connect with Earth'” by Salvenc Mbyl

FRAGRANCE:  I personally find that the best way to bring balance to a clogged or congested chakra is to work directly on the chakra by applying a suitable essential oil blend.   Even if you are feeling grounded, it is good to energize the energy center.

Ingredients:
1 oz. Pure Carrier Oil–Jojoba is a good choice as it is nutritive for the skin Or Fractionated Coconut Oil
10-15 drops cedarwood, sandalwood, White or Balsam Fir Essential Oil
1 oz. Clean Dark Glass Bottle.
Directions: Add the carrier oil and essential oil to your bottle and label it. The blend does not have to be highly aromatic to be effective. Remember to never apply essential oils to the skin without first diluting them.

In a quiet, peaceful setting, add 2-3 drops of your Topical Chakra Blend to your fingertips and then lightly apply the Chakra Blend to the associated chakra in a clockwise direction.
For the root chakra, I usually apply my blend either to my feet and/or to my lower back, near my tailbone, but not directly on it.
Once you have applied the blend, focus upon positive thoughts and intentions aimed towards balancing the chakra and sensing the VIBES of the EARTH.  Feel the FLOW!
Ideal times to use the blend are during times of meditation or while practicing yoga, listening to peaceful music or relaxing.

Muladhara Mudra—–The Root Chakra is the foundation for the other chakras, with emphasis on survival and grounding.
Mantra: LAM
Element: Earth
Bring your palms together in a prayer at your heart, then interlace the pinky and ring fingers so they fold inside of the palms. Extend the middle fingers so the tips touch and then interlace the thumbs and index fingers so they form rings around each other, with the fingertips touching.

Optional: Flip this mudra upside down and lower your arms slightly, so the middle fingers are pointed downward at your pelvic region
