Chakra System – Muladhara

552.jpgThe Muladhara (root chakra) is the foundation of the chakra system. If you practice yoga then you will be familiar with the chakra system and what each one represents. The root chakra helps to ground us and maintain our fundamental survival instincts. The root chakra is financial and nutritional difficulties. When I first started to find my feet after being diagnosed with fibro and I struggled. I was exhausted and I wanted to eat anything and everything that gave me even artificial energy. Once I found the Amy Myers diet, I decided that I was going to focus on my energy on healing my energetic flow. I am doing this by colouring a mandala a day while listening to a root chakra  meditation.

There are so many reasons to follow the chakra system, but for me it gives me something to focus on while I meditate. I breathe into the root chakra and focus on being grounded, connected and present. Personally I find that using this progression is very beneficial as it is sectioned off and I don’t get stuck in a spiral of trying to fix the whole cycle at once. It is a way to allow my mind to focus on a singular points and the smallest number of steps needed to build a solid foundation.

I am also going back to basics and building on the eight limbs of yoga starting by working on the universal morality, known as the yama’s .

I hope that this helps.

I am really struggling to lose the excess weight and get back to a space of health and vitality. The recovery time for CFS is varied so I have no idea how long I am going to be working towards this. It is going to be a very interesting journey especially seeing as it can be managed with some serious life style changes.
