The frequency and quality of the energy flowing from each of our chakras is different. Each chakra has its own type of spiritual energy, its own tuning. Spiritual energy said to be of immeasurable power, called by the Indians “Prana” and by the Chinese “Chi”, can flow through the chakras, but only if they are opened or activated. Technically speaking the chakras are the fields through which the energies flow, not the spiritual energies themselves. They are like doors. Certain tools and techniques unlock them.
Inner silence is the key to tuning the energies and integrating the conscious states. It is the sacred dimension or pure Awareness which unifies the otherwise unconnected states of consciousness. It is also the black hole source of the chakras. Thus all progress in spiritual disciplines depends upon reaching and retaining this inner silence.
Sunday is the day of the week that resonants strongly with Muladhara, the energy which is the origin of our sensing capacity or Root Chakra. A spinning red energy gateway grounding us.
AROMA: Root Chakra corresponds to our sense of smell so energize with it with smells of the earth: Balsam fir, Angelica or Cedar to name a few.
CRYSTALS: Red Jasper or Carnelian is an excellent stone to wear or meditate with for this chakra. When used in meditation, Carnelian assists in the understanding of how to bring a concept into being, and how to manifest it into action
MEDITATION: Visualize a red jewel in the center of the earth rise up and the swirling red ball of energy it becomes in contact with the base of your spine.
Begin conscious grounding to Mother Earth’s energies with tree pose:
You can use your ‘seeing red’ visualization as you firmly plant your entire left foot onto your mat and bring your right foot up into tree pose. Keep your hip points squarely ahead and your toes tucked in as you place your foot anywhere on your leg besides your knee. Be creative and make your tree pose your own. Place your right leg into half lotus or engage your core and reach your arms overhead, keeping the base of your neck soft and your elbows straight as you rotate the pinky side of your hands in to engage your triceps. Most importantly, feel supported and connected to the earth as you hold your tree pose for 5 to 8 breaths before switching sides——
This chakra is where security, confidence and self-esteem originate.
Root Lock or Yoni Bandha :
this yoga move is actually stimulating the very same process that creates orgasm,”
The Yoni canal connects to the clitoris and the entire womb. Women draw up at the base of the pelvic floor around the vagina and extending up to the mouth of the cervix. Draw in and up on the inhalation. Let go on the exhalation. Draw in strongly but not so much that you feel tension. It’s much more than a Kegel, which some feel is devoid of poetry and Eros. “It’s like this light that rises and illuminates the whole spine”.
Try squatting with your heels in and toes out, lean your torso in between your thighs with your hands together. As you inhale, engage Mula Bandha and feel the current rise from the earth and enter the pelvic floor. When you can’t inhale any longer, relax the squeeze on your exhale, without collapsing it entirely. You’re pulling energy up to tap into a subtle pulse, like the ocean tide.
SEE Y’ALL: Connect with the earth in every way you can conceive of this day.
