Finding balance is no easy feat; we drink more water, eat healthier foods and attempt to fit more physical activity into our busy lifestyles, these are just some of the things we do to take care of ourselves, but with everything going on around us are we forgetting about what’s going on inside us?
You can only do so much about external pressures that change how your mind and body react, but when we begin to understand ourselves better we see that opening and balancing our chakras can control what we let affect us. Here is our guide to finding balance within the galaxy that is called your body.
Before anyone can find balance within we must understand where and what our seven chakras are so we can do everything possible to keep energy moving through them freely and continuously…
1st - Root ChakraThe Root Chakra represents our foundation as people, life, vitality, strength and one’s physical nature. Located from the base of your spine to the tailbone region, your root chakra is associated with issues surrounding survival, such as, financial independence, nutrition and rest. Through walking barefoot, being outdoors, eating things that are red like raspberries, tomatoes and radish or from the earth such as potatoes, beets and carrots, this is where we begin to ground ourselves.
Crystal Therapy TIPWearing or surrounding yourself with stones or crystals of red jasper, bloodstone, hematite, garnet or smokey quartz carry many properties that help to open and align your root chakra.
