How to unlock the first chakra, Muladhara
The word “chakra” comes from the Sanskrit language and means “wheel” or “disc”, and designates “spiritual centers”. According to Indian history, our energy flows from one chakra to another through invisible channels. Chakras are wheels in perpetual motion which allow our energy to circulate correctly in our body. There are 7 chakras in our body that are triggered as we grow (from 0 to 7 years old, from 7 to 14 years old, from 14 to 21 years old, from 21 to 28 years old, from 28 to 35 years old, from 35 to 42 years, and from 42 to 49 years) then we return to the influence of the first chakra. So how to unlock the first chakra or root chakra?
How to unlock the first chakra?
To unlock the first chakra muladhara, the key is to take charge of your life and take action to improve your living conditions. In particular, it’s about getting rid of toxic relationships and creating your own family. Strengthen your sense of security by surrounding yourself with healthy people and a soothing environment.
On the side of the body, it will be necessary to privilege fresh water to quench your thirst, and healthy food. To take care of the root chakra, say goodbye fast food and welcome to vegetables and casseroles. The closer you are to nature, the more this feeling of security will develop. So take advantage of nature walks, do some gardening and don’t miss out on enjoying the moment. Also remember to get enough sleep and have a healthy work balance.
It is also possible to harmonize the root chakra with the 7 kundalini yoga exercises. Thus, it will be necessary to privilege the standing asanas, the postures allowing to put the feet on the ground or sitting on the ground.
How do I know if I have a blocked chakra?
The chakras do not block themselves, so if you have a blocked chakra this is due to your feelings, lifestyles or attitudes. You must first know the reasons for this blockage to hope to resolve it.
At any age a blocked chakra will manifest itself most of the time by a strong feeling of fear. You will be afraid of the world around you, without knowing what decision to make for your future, so you will stagnate in this uncomfortable situation.
Possible causes of malfunction
The causes of a blocked root chakra can be diverse and very often date back to your childhood, to what you experienced. It is not necessarily a lack of love, but perhaps the opposite of an excess.
Indeed, if people protected during your very early childhood, it may have created anxiety in you or even developed fear of the unknown. You have not been able to experience things for yourself and then everything that is foreign scares you.
If you have always been told that you can hurt yourself, don’t go too far, etc., unconsciously you have encouraged fears that are unfounded and that are relatively abstract. That’s why we have to be very careful with interactions with young children. Thus, leaving a baby to cry on his own without intervening, for example, might leave him with a deep feeling of insecurity which can lead to anxiety in adulthood.
