Week 1 - The Root Chakra

I do - I am

 Welcome to week 1 of the Chakra Challenge. I'm happy you've decided to join me!

The Root Chakra - Muladhara

This Chakra is located at the base of your spine and is said to ground you. It enables feelings of survival and security, family connectedness, and controls your fears.

By Balancing this chakra you help your spinal column, rectum, legs, bones and feet. Healing this chakra revitalizes the energy in your body and promotes overall health and well-being.

Challenges for the week:

  1. Eat more red. Here's some ideas to get you started!
    • Tomatoes
    • Red apples 
    • Strawberries
    • Pomegranate/Anar
    • Cherries 
    • Red raddishes
    • Beets
    • Red beans
    • Rutabaga
    • Red capsicum/peppers
    • Watermelon 
    • Raspberries
    • Red-skinned potatoes
    • Red corn
  2. Wear red 
    1. This doesn't have to be a large amount of red, you could just have red beads on a necklace
    2. Bonus points if you wear red jasper 
  3. Think about what would make you feel more secure in your life? Meditate on this question for a few minutes each day.
  4. Close your eyes and picture a red lotus flower at the base of your spine.
  5. Sit in sukhasana pose on the ground outside
  6. Listen to root chakra binuaral beats
  7. Visualize a deep, warm, red light flowing through the base of your spine. As it flows, affirm to yourself that your trust and happiness are safe with your spouse.
Comment below of how many of the challenges you intend to incorporate into your life this week. Do you have any suggestions for other ways to incorporate the color red or the grounding of the Earth into your routine? Share them below.

Please end here if you are at work or have children in the room.

The root chakra is also the center of sexuality, lust, sensuality and obsession. To truly harness the energy of the root chakra, this is an area we must learn to control and utilize to our advantage.

Challenges for the week:

  1. Tell your spouse your most secret fetish (if you've already told them, talk about it)
  2. Describe your most intimate sexual encounter with your spouse (to your spouse)
  3. Take time out for self-pleasure
  4. Cover your bed in red or sprinkle red rose petals around the room before love-making.
  5. Light red candles before intimacy. (Follow proper candle safety!)
