DO YOU HAVE “STRONG ROOTS?”
If you’re out of balance in your first or Root Chakra, you’re standing on very shaky ground. You don’t feel safe, secure, or supported by the earth.
Physical health issues commonly associated with the Root Chakra include lower back pain, sciatica, body weight issues, constipation, hemorrhoids, prostate problems, sexual dysfunction in men, and varicose veins.
Emotional or mental health issues include fear, anxiety, insecurity, extreme vulnerability, worry, grief, depression, self-centeredness, low self-esteem and distrust of others.
Located at the base of your spine, the Root Chakra is the very foundation of our identity, so it’s always wise to start your Chakra Balancing work here. This chakra is associated with basic survival and security in the world, groundedness, trust and boundaries. It vibrates with the energy of the color red.
When the Root Chakra is balanced, you feel strong and supported, safe, grounded, and peaceful.
USING DYNAMIND TO BALANCE THE ROOT CHAKRA
In my upcoming book, Chakra Secrects, I explain the Aha! moment I had when taught Dynamind by Serge Kahili King, PhD, a Hawaiian shaman and Huna healer. The technique can be used to reprogram the unconscious mind, to remove negative emotions and tell your body-mind what you’d like to experience – and it will follow your instructions. This works well to heal the imbalances of chakra energy.
1) FOCUS – Hold your hands out in a loose prayer-like position.
2) DECLARE – Say aloud the condition you’re feeling that you would like to change, e.g.,
“I feel anxious and I know that can change. I want that feeling to go away.”
“I have pain running down the back of my leg and I know that can change. I want that pain to go away.”
Dynamind affirmation to strengthen the Root Chakra:
“I’m not as strong and grounded as I want to be. I want to feel as grounded as the roots of a tree.”
3) RELEASE – Tap 7 times on the center of your chest, then at the point between the thumb and forefinger of each hand, and on the top bone of your spine (the 7th cervical vertebra).
4) BREATHE – Direct your breath, inhaling with your attention on the crown of your head, exhaling with your attention below your feet.
Repeat until you feel the desired result.
