As we take a few minutes to meet the first charka, we enter
into an agreement with our bodies and the earth. We agree
that we will honor ourselves as intricate parts of nature.
We agree that we will love our physical bodies.
Women living in today’s world have the opportunity
to surpass the orthodox teachings that often tell us that
our bodies are wrong in shape or purpose. We have leaders
telling us to listen to our inner voices and hear the voice
of self love. And, as we make a personal agreement to love
our bodies, we then become ready to truly know the first
Sitting upon a safe and comfortable ground, we imagine our
bodies, filled with energy, vibrating into the earth. As
we imagine, we begin to recognize that more than imagination
is carrying our energy into the earth. The energy of the
physical body is real as the energy of mother earth is real.
Together, we and the earth, make a partnership and bond.
Together, we and the earth are strong.
Our bodies, filled with the heat and power of woman energy,
are like ancient pillars of hope. Seated, we begin to find
our power. For, it is the first chakra, located at the base
of the spine that draws our power from the earth. As we
breathe into our lungs and fill our body with oxygen, we
can physically feel the sensation of earth energy moving
upward from the earth.
From deep within the mother a natural power climbs and reaches
our body. With warmth, this powerful energy flows into our
spine and awakens some sleeping part of our selves. Our
bodies awaken. We feel alive. The desire to chant, sing
and dance overtakes us. We spring to our feet, now filled
with energy. We move. We sway.
As we find our base chakra open and flowing in pure health,
we are prepared to grow. When our first chakra is empowered
we have the power to begin to create our physical desires.
We must plan to move forward and create our destinies. We
must set goals. We must believe in ourselves and our women
We have agreed to live a good life and help others do the
same. In honor of this agreement, we begin to share with
others. We allow our voice to speak to others by being present
in the moment. We allow younger women to travel their own
paths, yet we stand ready to answer questions and show the
way when guidance is needed. As we work, sleep and play
we are in a constant connection with our root energy.
Those who live well, draw upon the first chakra. They stop
in the moment, take a deep breath and go within. They find
their self present in the base of the spine. They gather
thoughts, feel gratitude and allow their inner wisdom to
surface. Then, they continue their day. Moving through the
day, they directly go toward that which is wanted and desired.
Like an inner battery, the first chakra purrs and grants
motivation, physical energy and confidence. And, when night
comes, the battery rests and recharges itself. Morning arises
and the lovely base chakra awakens and sits ready to work
again. It never fails.
Those who are first learning to utilize the energy of this
chakra are best advised to spend time meeting this energy.
Open the royal red door of this chakra with imagination
and deep breathing. Pay attention to physical sensations.
Listen to intuition and learn to work in harmony with this
energy. As you sit upon mother earth, know that you are
dealing with an amazingly large power. And, know that you
are a small part of this physical manifestation. As your
love for mother earth grows, so does your love for the first
chakra, for they are the same energies.
