Chakra Work to Increase Energy
If you’ve been walking around feeling like a flat battery recently, it’s time to balance your three lower chakras to give you a solid, healthy foundation so you can accomplish all of the important task in your daily life.
The first thing to remember is we are not human doings, but human beings. Allowing time for rest, meditation, contemplation and relaxation can often be as important as the hours we spend driving ourselves through our to-do list. In fact, they can be even more so, for they can help not only recharge your battery but channel powerful energies you never even knew you possessed.
The chakras are 7 energy centers in the body connected by the central channel. Learning the meaning of each chakra and the type of energy it contains can help boost your energy and improve all areas of your life.
The three lower chakras are the root chakra, the navel chakra and the solar plexus chakra. The root chakra is literally your foundation. It is associated with your buttock and anus and its energies are all to do with the essentials of life, such as food, water, shelter and warmth. These may be easy for you, or a struggle all the time.
Balancing the root chakra through yoga or massaging the buttocks when you are in the shower each morning should soon give you a life that is easier and more plentiful. The energy you harness can then be brought upwards through massage and meditation to the navel chakra.
The navel chakra or sex chakra is the seat of passion, creation and procreation. If you’ve been struggling at work to come up with inspired ideas or to complete all your projects on time and to a high standard, this is a good chakra to balance. If you have also been struggling with your intimate relationship because you lack energy, this is also a good chakra to focus on.
Then you can move the energy up to the solar plexus chakra, which is the seat of your willpower and personal power. Solar refers to the sun and plexus to a network. A very important bundle of nerves in this area below the center of your rib cage looks like the sun with rays of light spreading outwards, hence the name. Yoga such as sun salutations, deep breathing, and chakra meditation can all balance and move the energy upwards.
Once you have balanced your three lower chakras, you should be amazed at how much energy you have. Keep it circulating there, or move it up to the higher chakras for even more energy in your intellectual and spiritual life.
