Muladhara: Day 7

I might have made mention in the past that Sunday’s are for Shoshoni Yoga Retreat. I stinking love that place. And this day would’ve been like any other, but for one fact… The snow. It snowed! It snowed a LOT!! And it snowed all day. I half expected to see the cat in the hat stroll by. I do not enjoy driving in the snow (thanks, mom) so I just said “Nah. Not today snow. You win.” I stayed home instead and checked in with Yoga with Kassandra, doing a Root Chakra Yin Yoga. This class’s message was one of safety, abundance, and belonging. I took this class back over the summer and remember it being quite difficult for me. The first move is a toe tuck foot stretch type move and it was like straight torture. The rest of the practice was not much easier. This time around, while the foot stretch still was uncomfortable and painful a little, it, as well as the rest of the class, was soooo much easier! Yaaay regular practice! But also yaa for feeling much more grounded! I was way out of sorts over the summer and had a lot of root chakra fears so I imagine that that contributed to how difficult that practice was originally. Also I don’t practice yin often, so holding those poses for so long is quite a challenge!

Final Thoughts

  • Balanced Chakra

    I stimulated and balanced the shit out of this chakra! It’s been out of whack for a good while but really focusing on it, acknowledging the things that scare and worry me, finding ways to change or fix or accept what isn’t working for this center has been so helpful. I didn’t realize how big an impact little changes make to this chakra. I imagine it’ll be similar in the other chakras, but it really was surprising how stimulating something as simple as just wearing or thinking about the color red could be. Speaking of stimulating…

  • Overstimulated Root

    Jeezy Creezy!!! Holy sinus, blowing nose, head pain! Now I really can’t tell you what the root cause of this is. Could just be a sickness going around I was unlucky enough to catch. Could be the Tibetan 5 Rites moving some icky things out of me. Could be that I spent an entire week stimulating and nourishing this chakra in so many different ways that it was just shining it’s ruby red light as brightly and lovingly as it could. Unfortunately that’s just too strong and it backed up in me. Or some shit like that. Much more likely it was a combination of all three. Whatever the cause, I’m not digging it.

  • Helpful Takeaways

    What I’m most grateful about is the new knowledge I’ve gained from this. Now I have so many tricks up my sleeve for when my root is feeling low and neglected or when it’s all overstimulated and needs to be calmed down. I know how to connect with the Muladhara chakra in so many different ways and forms, and I can incorporate it so easily into my everyday life! Oils, yoga, nature, meditation, animals, food, journaling, flowers, stones, herbs, and so much more; I’ve got an arsenal of tricks now!
