Grounding Affirmations to Balance and Harmonize Your Root Chakra

Associated with the earth element, Muladara is linked to your ability to dig in and feel firmly rooted in your life.

Muladhara, Root Chakra, is the foundation of the chakra system. Balancing this chakra creates a solid foundation for opening the chakras above.

Root Chakra Affirmations

Chakras are energy centers within the body. The word chakra means “wheel” or “disk.” Think of the chakras as spinning vortices of energy that correspond to bundles of nerves, major organs, and areas of your energetic body that affect your emotional and physical well-being.

There are seven main chakras that align along the spine; starting at the base of the spine and moving up to the crown of the head. When adequate energy flows to these chakras, that energy fills the area with the vital life force each chakra needs to perform its unique specialty.

You are constantly changing, growing, evolving and adapting to outside influences; as such, lifestyle choices, life experiences, circumstances and outside influences may hinder the flow of energy to these energy centers. When chakras become blocked, it destructs the flow of energy in our bodies and causes emotional and physical distress.

Fortunately, there are a variety of practices, including affirmations, that can help keep these channels open and allow energy to flow freely.

Affirmations are powerful statements used to balance and harmonize these energy centers. Through consistency and repetition, affirmations direct healing energy to restore balance to specific areas of your body and life.

Root Chakra

Located at the base of your spine, your root chakra provides you with a base or foundation for life; it helps you feel grounded and able to withstand challenges. It connects us to the earth and everything around us.

The root chakra controls your survival instincts, security, fight-or-flight, and fear. Physically, it supports your legs, feet, and foundation.The root chakra is responsible for your sense of safety, security, and stability. It is often associated with financial security, home life and basic needs. An imbalanced root chakra may cause issues with the legs, feet, digestive system, and emotional imbalances which cause feelings of not being supported, insecurity, loneliness, or fear.

The energies of the root chakra help us to feel grounded and connected to this Earth, giving us a place for our life to ‘take root’ and for the flow of energies to propel us forward on our life journey. When these energies are stuck, stagnant, imbalanced, or blocked, our vitality and zest for life are also compromised.

When energy is flowing through the first chakra, you feel firmly rooted in yourself and the world around you. However, if your root chakra is out of alignment, this may manifest in your life as feeling depressed, anxious, fearful, exhausted, rushed, stuck, unmotivated, disconnected, angry, excessive worry, nightmares or constipation.

When the root chakra is balanced and functioning properly, you feel grounded, secure and at peace with the world. Stress begins to dissipate from your body and mind. When you can be assured that your basic needs are met (root chakra), you’ll be able to focus on your relationships and personal goals (higher chakras).

Use Theta Thoughts to Balance Your Root Chakra

As you listen to Theta Thoughts visualize the color red at the base of your spine. Bathe your root chakra in a vibrant red blanket of mist as you relax into the grounding and soothing affirmations.

Theta Thoughts allows you to transcend negative thoughts and replace them with new positive thoughts through relaxation and repetition; theta binaural beats + positive affirmation loop. When the body and mind are relaxed you are more receptive to receiving the newly desired thoughts. Through this process, new neural pathways and positive thought patterns are created.

While relaxing comfortably in your bed you are gently guided into deep states of relaxation. As you soften into complete stillness all of your day-to-day thoughts and worries begin to drift away and positive thoughts begin to fill your mind space. As the positive affirmations cycle through your mind they create a positive thought pattern.

Over time your negative and limiting thoughts about money begin to dissolve and the positive affirmations aligned with abundance become your new dominant thoughts.

As your internal dialogue begins to transform both your internal and external worlds will shift and you will come into alignment with your desires.
