Healing The Root Chakra With Food

Healing The Root Chakra With Food

 

Do you feel abandoned by your friends, partner, or family? Do you feel like the foundation of your life is shaky, and it makes you feel anxious or nervous all the time?

This is an indication that your root chakra is out of alignment. A strong root chakra is secure and strong, no matter what’s going on in life…no matter how hard. Sure, we all get shaken from time to time, but someone who has developed deep inner strength has found what yogis say is the ability to “Remain unshaken amidst the crash of breaking worlds.”

So how do we develop this power?

We must practice.

Spiritual traditions of all kinds strengthen our resolve and teach us that our real happiness comes not from the world, but the Divine. But there are other, less obvious things you can do too.

Strengthening the Root Chakra with Food

All the food we consume matters because it holds a vibration that has an influence on the energy centers within our physical and emotional bodies.

The root chakra is strengthened with tribal connections. Enjoying a relaxing meal with friends or family can have a profound effect on your healing. Also, having gratitude before and during the meal is a useful way to make each day about your journey of health and vitality.

What to eat: Always choose organic!

1. Protein
2. Minerals
3. Red Colored Fruits and Vegetables
4. Root Vegetables

Protein has a grounding effect and strengthens the physical body: Lentils, tofu, black beans, quinoa, amaranth, soy milk, green peas, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, tempeh, hemp milk, edamame, spinach, black-eyed peas, broccoli, almonds, spirulina, tahini, chickpeas, and peanut butter are all excellent sources of vegan proteins.

The root chakra’s element is Earth, so therefore a mineral-rich diet creates stability — hence a plant based diet is recommended.

Red Colored Fruits and Vegetables help the root chakra in many wonderful ways. The root chakra is red, and interestingly, eating red can help regulate the root chakra. Most red fruits and vegetables are a good source of Vitamin C. The root chakra is connected to bone, skin, and the adrenals which all need Vitamin C to thrive. Red apples, strawberries, pomegranates, cherries, tomatoes, red cabbage, beets, and many more are beneficial.

Root Vegetables are a vital resource because they are grown in Earth’s soil and contain the grounding and stabilizing energy of Earth. Potatoes, beets, carrots, onion, garlic, and parsnips can have a positive effect on the root chakra.

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet
    my newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was
    hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to
    your new updates.

    My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the
    costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on various websites for
    about a year and am worried about switching to another platform.
    I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net.

    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it?
    Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

    and extremely wide for me. I’m having a look forward to your next submit, I’ll attempt to
    get the hold of it!

    Hi there this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or
    if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I
    wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

    Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea
    shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched
    her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I
    had to tell someone!
