The Root Chakra: Kundalini Rising

Standard

Root_Chakra

” I am connected with the energy of Mother Earth. My Body,  Mind and Spirit are grounded, centred and purified.”

Imagine your spine is a tree trunk with seven ascending flowers (chakras) growing out of it. These flowers are either opened or closed depending upon your health, mental disposition, and ability to communicate with the cosmos. These flowers emit a distinct energy unique to your personal frequency, but they are profoundly interconnected, both with each other and with the greater cosmos. This article will discuss the significance of the first of these chakras:

Muladhara, the root chakra.

If the crown chakra is the Übermensch (overman) of the Kundalini process, then the root chakra is the Untermensch (underman). But don’t allow this lowly connotation to fool you into thinking that the root chakra is any less important, or even less powerful. After all, there cannot be an over without an under. There cannot be a flower without its roots. Opening the root chakra is reconnecting with the often neglected, often suppressed, savage, prima materia heart of man. It’s a tapping into the latent energy of the unconscious realms hidden beneath the soil of the human condition, dark and muddy, but alive in a way that subsumes all levels of individuation.

The root chakra is symbolized by a red lotus with four petals. It is located at the base of the spine in the coccygeal region (tailbone area), while its central activation point is located within the perineum. It is the lowest vibration of the body and has the slowest wavelength.

The four petals directly denote stability and foundational survival, and are indirectly related to the four sides of the square, the four directions, and the four elements: earth, air, fire, & water. The chakra extends downward, connecting us to the earth while ‘grounding’ us. It is related to instinct and to the basic ‘fight or flight’ mechanism of the human condition. Known also as the seat of Kundalini, dormant kundalini rests here, wrapped around the four-petaled lotus, just waiting to be awakened.

“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.” ~ Carl Jung

The deity associated with this region is Indra who is often depicted riding a white seven-tusked elephant. The tusks symbolize the seven elements vital to physical functioning. He personifies the underworld, the unconscious abyss and the interconnectedness of all things rooted. His lesson is that Humankind only seems to be an un-rooted being, but his un-rootedness is an illusion. We’re like walking trees, but all trees have roots. Like Allan Watts said, “Nature is always differentiated unity, not unified differences.”

The root chakra is the energy center of the entire Kundalini process, but it is also the toxin-release center. It connects us to the earth because that is where we receive all of the vital nutrients essential to our survival, and it is also where body toxins are released. The root chakra doesn’t just ground us physically, it also grounds us temporally by keeping us in the present moment.

Those whose root chakra is open, tend to be healthier, more balanced and grounded. They tend to be less fearful and more centered. Those whose root chakra is closed or under active, are often fearful, lack focus nervous, imbalanced and disconnected, and tend to suffer from depression, autoimmune deficiencies, especially dealing with the blood.

Root Chakra Meditation/ How to Open the Root chakra

While meditating, focus your energy (or Qi) on the base of the spine. Notice how you feel about your connection to the earth. Literally relax and ‘drop’ your kegel muscles. Imagine your spine branching down into the earth like the roots of a tree.

Visualize yourself receiving the full bounty of the earth’s ‘nutrients.’ Other ways of opening the root chakra are through aromatherapy, massage, yoga and exercise. Exhale the toxins and inhale the energy. Uncoil the Kundalini ‘snake’ wrapped around your sacred roots and guide it to the next level; to the second chakra: The Swadhisthana.

How negative energy affects your life and how to clear it?

Standard

Stardust energy clearing

You know that like attracts like, right? So here’s the deal: Positive people are drawn to positive energy; negative people are drawn to negative energy.

We tend to perceive negative energy as something other people have. Sure, sometimes we feel negative – as in, “go away and leave me alone, world!” but did you know that negativity can be so ingrained in you that it goes unnoticed?

That’s because negativity sometimes wears a disguise called ‘reality’. It’s easy to rationalize that you’re ‘just being realistic’ in not daring to act on a dream – and believe it!

You may assume that positive people are not being realistic – that they’re being naive, that they are in denial with their heads stuck in the sand, that they put on fake smiles in the face of difficulty and so forth.  But are they really happy idiots or is there something to their positivity?

Consider this: since when does ‘being realistic’ necessarily mean that things will go wrong and that you have to accept that as the truth?

That doesn’t mean that being realistic is automatically negative. When you view the world from a ‘realistic’ standpoint, you can’t help but be negative IF your version of reality is negative.

If your version of reality is negative, you are conditioned to believe that whatever can go wrong, will go wrong and whatever can go right, will probably go wrong too. Your unconsciously held beliefs make you into a negative person without your being aware of it!

So – if this negativity is so ingrained in you that you don’t notice it, how do you determine whether you’re stuck in a cloud of negative energy that is attracting the wrong people, wrong situations and wrong feelings? And how can you be sure you’re not perpetuating that negativity?

Here’s a quick quiz to gauge the level of negative energy within you:

  • Do you complain? All the time or just sometimes?
  • Do you often discuss what’s wrong in the world more than what’s right? This includes the ‘terrible’ weather, ‘horrible’ traffic, ‘idiotic’ government, ‘lousy’ economy, ‘stupid’ in-laws, etc.
  • Do you criticize? All the time or just certain people?
  • Are you attracted to drama and disaster (can you unglue yourself from the TV when there’s a news story of a disaster and can you avoid getting involved in the lives of dysfunctional celebrities?)
  • Do you blame? All the time or just certain situations?
  • Do you believe that you have no control over most of your results?
  • Do you feel like a victim? Do you talk about people doing things to you?
  • Are you grateful for what is or will you be grateful when things finally start going right for you?
  • Do you feel like things are happening to you? Or do you feel that they are happening through you?

This last two points are important:

If you’re not grateful except when things go right, you are negative. Gratitude is positive. If you are grateful for what is (including the unpleasantschool of life lessons, then you can invite more and more positive energy into your life.

Believing that things happen to you puts you in the role of victim; then it’s easy to be negative because it’s convenient to give up that power. So consider this alternative: who or what is to blame when GOOD things happen to you? Do you acknowledge that you are responsible for the good things – as in, you worked hard, you earned it, etc… but blame external events or other people for your failures? So how come, when good things happen, they are a result of what you do, but when bad things happen, they are not your fault?

Nobody likes to hear that. It takes courage to accept that you create your life experience!

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you are holding on to negative energy to some degree! To clear your negative energy and raise your vibration, you will need to retrain yourself to choose a positive attitude.

Here’s another interesting idea to consider: have you noticed that positive people seem to get what they want out of life, and even if things don’t go their way, they still enjoy their lives… while negative people whine and moan about their misfortunes and even the good things in their lives?

To clear negative energy, try this 3 -step process:

1. Take ownership: “When you think everything is someone else’s fault, you will suffer a lot. When you realize that everything springs only from yourself, you will learn both peace and joy.” – the Dalai Lama

2. Cancel negative thoughts and replace them with positive thoughts.This takes practice, dedication and making a decision to see the world through the eyes of “what can go right” instead of “what can go wrong.” You’ll have to catch yourself anytime you are acting out or speaking out your negativity, and immediately change your tune.

3. Use the Love or Above Spiritual Toolkit to clear your energy and bring more light and love into your life;  visualize the positive instead of getting sucked into negativity; overcome past conditioning; think intuitively from the soul instead from ‘reality’; create a new, desired reality in your imagination and manifest it in the outer world. Nobody wants negative energy to permeate their lives, yet many of us allow it. But we allow it unconsciously, based on past conditioning that suggests an inevitable outcome to certain situations. When you overcome that conditioning and realize that the future is NOT cast in stone but that you have more control over your circumstances than you believe – then you can begin to consciously design your life.

What’s going to happen then? Your positive energy will magnetically attract what you consider to be good and right for you: people, situations, things… and you’ll notice a huge, huge increase in your happiness and inner peace.

Why not choose positive energy? Make some changes within, and you’ll quickly see positive changes in your life. Enjoy the good feelings and abundance!
