Now we come to what I refer to as the fluffy and frivolous recommendation that you find in other articles related to this subject of Root Chakra Healing and Balance.
- Wear red clothing because this is the colour associated with the root chakra.
- Use affirmations such as “I am safe.”
- Drink herbal teas such as dandelion root, sage, ginger, elderflower.
- Eat root vegetables because they are connected to the root chakra element -earth.
- Chant the sound LAM.
- Wear red tinted spectacles.
When I write these out, I have to smile.
For some (6) I ask, “Is this for real?”
Let me also say that I love some of these ideas and use them in my everyday life. These are items (1) and (4). I think, however, that they have no real impact on my energy level and certainly no real impact on healing my inner Orphan.
Having said that it is up to you to explore what works for you.
Let me say, however, that none of the above six fluffy practices will heal serious root chakra imbalance. You are fooling yourself and being misguided if you think they will.
If you think you have a Root Chakra Healing or Balance issue then if you do nothing more at least start a daily practice of Yoga Nidra. This is not fluffy practice.
The practice of Yoga Nidra is both challenging and enjoyable. The challenge is to stay awake. It is not as demanding as therapy or counselling. It does, however, give you a real foundation for learning to live as an embodied Presence of Love on this Planet. This is your true destiny.
I hope you found these 24 Ways of Healing and Balancing the Root Chakra of value especially if you feel you have serious imbalance as shared above. Maybe you have a practice that you use in your life that heals your feeling of being less than fully embodied and that allows you to feel safer in your own skin. Maybe you would share it in the comments.
