If we imagine our chakra system as a lotus flower, then the first chakra represents our roots. Through the first chakra we receive energy from the Earth and we nourish our whole energetic system with it. If our first chakra – our root is in its power, then our life force energy can flow upwards through all the chakras. It nourishes our whole being, supports our growth and helps us to attain our full potential – full blossom of the lotus flower. The blossoming lotus flower represents our full consciousness – enlightened being.
Sex and spirit in union
There is a saying in tantra: „No mud, no lotus.“ To achieve our full potential and flower into enlightened consciousness, it is important that our roots are healthy and firmly rooted in the Earth. So we are grounded and stable.
Many people are trying to be spiritual but they condemn the material world and sexuality of the first chakra. Without fully embracing our sexuality and animalistic nature, we cannot really grow on our spiritual path because we cut ourselves from our life force energy which is essential for our consciousness and personal growth.
If we try to be spiritual without a strong base, then we are flying somewhere in the clouds and we struggle with the daily physical reality. It is important for a meditating person to ground themselves regularly.
Any spiritual growth that is not helping us to improve our daily life is useless. And any rich materialistic life without spirit has no meaning. It is missing the purpose, depth and direction.
Our first chakra is the seat of kundalini energy. It is our life force energy that awakens our consciousness and spiritual growth. In ancient scriptures it was depicted as a sleeping snake curled into a spiral. As soon as it is awakened, it starts rise up along the spine. On the way it awakens all our energy centers – chakras.
When it is fully awakened a person experiences an orgasmic feeling of bliss, wholeness and connection to all that is. You are opening to universal consciousness and your full potential. So we can walk our life path consciously, confident, in joy and trust. All aspects of our life are in harmony and we enjoy every moment.
Tips on how to work with your 1st Chakra:
To get full benefit of our first chakra, we need to connect with the Earth, with nature, with our body, with the mater. We need to get into contact with our primal wild unbounded energy.
How to do it?
Meditation for grounding: walking barefoot on the grass, soil, stones or anything natural. Feel and sense how your feet are touching the ground. Feel weight of your body and the pressure of your feet on the ground. Sense how the Earth is holding you, nourishing and supporting you. Feel the connection between you and the Earth. Keep this meditative awareness for about 20 minutes.
More activities that support activation of the first chakra:
Try doing these activities with a meditative awareness. Maybe you don’t even have to take extra time for them. Most of them you are doing daily. Just bring your awareness to them and make it your meditation. Maybe you are walking somewhere, maybe you are washing the dishes, doing laundry, carrying groceries or you are cooking, listening to radio while dancing. Sense your contact with the mater, with Earth and with your body. Maybe it looks simple but when you bring your awareness there, you will see that things start happening and something starts shifting.
