Root Chakra Meditation, and Free Teleseminar on Your Chakras and Life Lessons

April 2, 2013

I’m so happy to share with you the launch of a new site I will be writing for, Meditate Like a Girl. This site is an evolution of Buddha Chick Life, which I had been writing for over the last year, and is a collaboration of many wonderful women. It is led by Jan Lundy, whom I have mentioned often here, and am fortunate enough to call friend. Meditate Like a Girl is dedicated to exploring and celebrating meditation, in all its forms, with Feminine style and verve’You will find guidance on meditation practices of all types here, as well as poetry and soulful sharings. In addition to new articles each month, donation-based teleseminars will be offered by contributors sharing new practices and teachings. As if that’s not enough, each month will feature a guest mentor, and this month’s guest mentor is none other than Sally Kempton, author of Awakening Shakti, a book I mentioned in a post earlier this year and absolutely love.

Our root chakra is the energetic center for our connection to the earth, our physical body, and our sense of trust and foundation here on the human plane.

Our root chakra is the energetic center for our connection to the earth, our physical body, and our sense of trust and foundation here on the human plane.

For the first 7 months of my own column there, I will be focused on offering more detailed information and a guided meditations for each of the seven core chakras. This month I have begun with the Root Chakra, which ties in perfectly to the overall theme of ‘Honoring Our First and Forever Mother, the Earth.’ I have included a free root chakra guided meditation that will help you to really open, heal, and empower this foundation center in a deep way.

In addition, I will be offering Meditate Like a Girl‘s first meditation teleseminar on Your Chakras and Life Lessons’, Monday April 22nd, from 6-7 PM PST (although you can listen to the recording later if you can’t attend live). In this teleseminar you will learn a chakra framework for understanding repeating themes in your life, and energy practices you can work with to enhance your understanding and insight around these ‘life lessons’.

So I hope you will join me, and share this wonderful site with your friends. And if you are a blogger, writer or teacher yourself, perhaps you’d like to consider submitting a guest article – we’d love to have you.

    That’s great Julie, and perhaps you would be interested in writing an article for the site as a guest contributor sometime too – something to think about:-)

    Hi, Lisa,
    Just went over to the new site and its FB page. I love the community feel.
    Regarding the chakra, I feel loa / manifestation is more about the 2nd chakra, where there is the womb in women. The 1st chakra secures the basics of life — it’s about survival, so as long as the 1st chakra is in good shape, you won’t go on the street, but in order to “enjoy” abundance — that is more about the 2nd chakra, isn’t it? What do you think?

    Oh this sounds so very exciting! I look forward to watching it unfold. Congratulations and wishing you the best! 🙂

    Hi Akemi, I think manifestation really involves all of the chakras, but in terms of actually birthing into the material world, the first chakra has to really be grounded. The second chakra is more of the emotional energy (the passion) and the creativity, while the first is what actually brings it into being. If you think of it physically, the ‘womb’ is related to the second chakra (the creating/nurturing space) while the birth canal is linked to the first chakra – the final pathway into the physical world. (A fabulous book on this is Creating on Purpose by Anodea Judith and Lion Goodman, which walks through the ‘downward path’ through the chakras, from the spiritual to the material, in terms of creating in this world from a spiritual purpose perspective. They do a great job of distinguishing the role of the energies of each chakra in terms of creating, from ‘inspiration’ (crown) to physical reality (root.)

    In terms of enjoyment, yes I agree, that is more linked to second chakra. So it all depends on what someone means when they say ‘abundance’ or ‘manifestation’ – I find it means a lot of different things to different people. I have seen a lot of people – women especially – who are blocked in both chakras, but I’ve also seen some where the second is strong, so there is a lot of passion and creativity, but then difficulty completing projects and following through in absolute physical terms, which is usually a combination of root and navel issues. And I’ve seen people with very strong roots, but weak sacrals, and they are usually very well off, they can manifest money, but yes there is no emotional link to what they are doing, no passion.

    Trust is another big issue with the root – if the root chakra is weak, there is a real difficulty trusting anyone. This is also often involves the heart, but they work together when it comes to trust. Bottom line is that everyone has there own unique chakra patterns. I have moved away from thinking in terms of individual chakras as strong or weak when working with people individually, as it’s more helpful to look at the whole picture as there are usually patterns specific to each person that link a number of chakras. So looking at the patterns instead of the chakras is more useful (at least for me.)

    That’s great Janice, I think it will be a nice complement to some of the other themes I know you are interested in.

I love to hear from you...
