The Base Chakra – Our Stability, Survival and Vitality

Chakras are energy centres (sometimes called Energy Wheels) in our body in which energy flows through. We have seven major chakras and many small chakras in our body.

We will talk today about the first chakra, also called Base Chakra.

This chakra is located at the base of the spine and the colour representing it is red.

Base chakra is all about instincts, survival, stability (home, money, job, food…). It is also the chakra that grounds our energy. The more grounded our energy is, the easier it is for us to manifest our dreams and desires into a physical form. It is also our power station, charging and recharging our body with physical vitality and endurance.

When our Base Chakra is out of balance (blocked, too big or too small compared to other chakras, spinning too fast or too slow…) we may experience difficulties in our lives connected to financial issues, our stability and energy levels. We might also experience anxiety, problems with focusing, lack of ability to move forward and digestion difficulties.

How to keep your Base Chakra balanced:

–       Exercise daily. Any kind of exercise will do. You might find yoga or martial arts very beneficial for balancing your Base Chakra.

–       Ground your energy. Stand barefoot on the ground (outdoors) for a few minutes and visualise red cords from your feet and the base of your spine coming down to the ground and all the way down to the core of the earth.

–       Apply Vetiver pure essential oil on the soles of your feet every morning.

–       Add more red colour into your life (eating red fruit and vegetables, wearing red clothes, adding more red into your home)

–       Use Base Chakra pure essential oils in your oil burner or diffusor, such as Frankincense, Myrrh and Patchouli.

–       Use/wear gemstones Base Chakra, such as: Garnet, Bloodstone and Red Jasper.

–       Listen to relaxing music with drums and/or didgeridoo.
