Spring is springing and the roots of Mother Earth’s flora are beginning to grow in strength. Let’s do a little work on our own roots.
Sit calmly in a comfortable spot outside, wearing minimal or comfortable clothing (or none at all!). Visualize your root chakra growing down into the earth in a dark red color. While doing so, repeat the Sanskrit word Muladhara. (This is the ancient Vedic Hindu name for the base chakra.)
Visualize this root going deep into the earth’s molten core, feeding your body with comforting warmth. Then imagine the root slowly ascending back into your body, and take a number of deep breaths while you see its nourishing energy filling your whole being.
Cross your arms in front of your chest and speak words affirming that you are a child of Mother Nature. Consider performing yoga or additional visualizations that connect you with the Mighty Mother.
