The energy center known in Sanskrit as muladhara is called the root chakra. It is located in a layer of our subtle body called pranamayakosha, at the base of our spine in the tailbone area. The root chakra is our connection to the earth and to humanity at large. When this chakra is closed, muddied, and unhealthy, we experience fear, timidity, worry, doubt, anger, frustration, panic, self-loathing, survival mode, and defensiveness, and we manifest unhealthy habits, addictions, narcissism, aggressive behavior, bullying, and a sense of entitlement or victimhood.
In today's special guest, Dr. Susan Shumsky's book Earth Energy Meditations: Awaken Your Root Chakra-The Foundation of Well-Being, she provides an answer to these maladies. Her book helps us reconnect with the earth and primal energies with powerful, easy-to-use methods of guided meditation, affirmation, visualization, breathing, and physical movements. By practicing these techniques, we can reap the benefits of an open, clear, and healthy root chakra. We can enjoy strength of character, integrity, perseverance, persisitence, self-acceptance, self-worth, practicality, healthy survival instinct and prosperity.
