What’s The Most Important Chakra?
These days, whenever you go in alternative healing circles, there’s discussion of the chakras. Everyone from yoga teachers, chiropractors, naturopaths, to reiki practitioners all discuss these 7 energy points with regularity. But are they really hitting the nail on the head when they claim we need to “balance” them? Yes and no. Here’s why.
When it comes to buildings, bridges, and complex structures, any engineer will tell you the most important aspect is the foundation. Without that stability, the structure crumbles. Similarly, the energetic body needs that kind of support. This means the base of the energetic spine, the muladhara, must be strengthened in such a way in order to provide a strong foundation.
So yes, the chakras do need to be “balanced”, but not in the way most people think. Spending a lot of time trying to fix the heart chakra may bring a sense of peace, but working on the root chakra will make these changes stick. Trying to hold yourself in a state of balance will not always work for you- because there are too many things that pull at us during the day. But the base chakra governs impulses and sexuality; hence when you stabilize it, the rest of the chakras naturally come into a more balanced state.
By meditating regularly, you can easily begin to bring balance into chakras; but a special focus on the Muladhara is necessary. Here’s a basic root chakra meditation you can begin to use:
- Sit comfortably in your normal meditation posture
- Feel your pelvic bones anchored to the earth
- Visualize a red spinning chakra at the base of your spine
- Imagine that energy pulsating and surrounding you for 5 minutes
- Do this over and over again for 15-20 minutes
After doing this for 6 months, you’ll notice a general feeling of being grounded and stable. This will make all the difference when it comes to how you act in challenging situations and how you feel in general. Difficult emotions and situations will begin to lessen their grip on your mind, giving you clearer thoughts and a renewed perspective.
