Muladhara – balancing the first Chakra

“The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest of wilderness”
John Muir

Do you ever feel too much “in the head”, stressed out or ungrounded.

The quickest way to unwind and release stress I’ve found is spending time in nature or in meditation or even better – both at the same time. Spending time in nature balances our whole body and refills our energies. Nature helps us both in letting go of negativity and filling up on positive energy. The same goes for meditation, when we learn to rest in the silent place within, we recharge, let go and fill up with positivity.

In my book “Be the Alchemist of Your Life” I share different ways to connect and strengthen your first chakra – Muladhara. This chakra is designed to keep us grounded, connected and have a security in getting our basic needs met:

“The ruby can give us an awareness of others’ feelings and strengthens our compassionate nature. This gemstone can balance a driven and ambitious individual to honor the body and align the will and goals of his or her higher self.

The masculine, warrior side of us learns to honor the earth and the divine feminine and realizes that this side needs nurturing and love, so it will align the forceful creative side with an inner state of love and then create in accordance to the heart, instead of from brute force. If you have a strong ambitious side that is driven by a strong force forward, the ruby can aid you in aligning your will with your heart and higher self so you stay with your creations in accordance to your highest will.

When aligning with the ruby’s highest powers, we can connect with our inner healer, which is deeply compassionate and devoted to spirituality, while still being part of the material world.”

“Muladhara, the base chakra, is also referred to as the survival chakra. When this chakra is properly developed, we feel safe in the world. We feel supported on the physical plane and confident in getting our basic needs met.

Confidence, trust, feeling safe, being grounded and at one with life, tending to our basic needs, and taking good care of our bodies are all qualities that support us in keeping the first chakra balanced.”
