Meditation for Root Chakra
Begin by getting comfortable in the meditation sacred place of your choosing. This time, instead of laying down, you will be sitting with your legs crossed.
Make sure that your spine and shoulders are straight and tall which will be more effective when healing the lower abdomen and the root chakra.
Allow for your hands to rest on your knees, with the palms facing up. Form your hands into the mudra hand position by forming a circle using your thumb and your index finger, it can also be interpreted as an okay hand gesture.
Begin to breathe deeply, inhale and hold the breath for three seconds before exhaling it and dragging it out for another three seconds.
Make sure that when you are breathing in and out that you use your chest, rather than breathing in through your stomach.
When you are using the chest, the spine extends and moves along with the breathing, this will enable the relaxation of the body even when you are sitting up. Take a few minutes to simply relax your muscles and the body as you breathe in.
Bring your attention to your breathing as you inhale and exhale to help calm the mind.
Try your best to not listen to your thoughts and the mental clutter that is going on inside your head. Instead, bring your focus to yourself as a being in this big universe.
Don’t think about anything else that you have to do or things that might be bothering, instead focus on breathing through your chest, making the lungs expand as you breathe in.
Take some time to bring your attention to different parts of your body, relaxing them in the process.
Think of your face muscles, relaxing as they tingle with your life force energy that you always have within you. Then bring your attention to your arms, legs, belly, and other parts of your body that you might feel some tension in.
Allow yourself to feel the different tingling sensations all throughout as you let your body go numb and relax.
Gradually bring your attention back to your breathing, notice how your chest rises and falls every time you inhale or exhale.
Simply chanting root chakra affirmations won’t help you. You also need to follow the proper meditation and healing techniques in order to open or balance it.
You should develop self love before you try to achieve something. Practice these self love affirmations to conquer your mind.
