Mooladhara chakra – the rudder and basis of our lives

Many people view the chakras as a mystical component, something fascinating or fanciful that they want to pursue in their lives. For others, it is a conversation starter and even a venture into some elite spiritual journey and experience. The most annoying aspect can be the superficiality around the chakras’ knowledge and how people carelessly toss around the words and concepts.

But the bottom line is this – every component of our subtle energy system is central to our day-to-day functioning, health and well-being. Several oddities, imbalances and problems in our lives result when they aren’t working correctly. In our series on illuminating every chakra’s practical aspect, we provide day-to-day scenarios that we deal with, that are related to it. We discuss practical ways to overcome some of our important challenges about the particular chakra or channel.

Unfortunately, others of us have negative experiences, associating spirituality with guilt, shame, and rigorous, unattainable standards. The weight can feel heavy, and the idea of having a real relationship with our higher power may feel impossible. Maybe you’ve found a mixture of both positive and negative experiences of spirituality.

All about Chakras and Meditation

By now, you’ve likely heard of the Kundalini energy and chakras. At Sahaja, we try to demystify these concepts as much as we can and explain how these things correlate with aspects of your life. Truthfully, meditation doesn’t have to be mystical or separate from real, normal living. Real meditation is actually quite the opposite, tightly integrated into practitioners’ everyday lives.

 

Our chakras are a system of inner energy centers at the core of our being and are at work each day. To give you an example, when we overeat, our Nabhi chakra becomes imbalanced. On a deeper level, when we strengthen our heart chakra, we get rid of our fears and insecurity.

 

Here is everything you need to know about the chakras in simple terms.
