Third Chakra
A Look At The Root Chakra
Chakra is a word that means wheel in Sanskrit.  As humans, we have 7 main “wheels” of energy in our body and the 1st wheel is at our base, which is called the root chakra (being the one that is closest to the earth).  The next seven weeks I will go through each chakra.  Each chakra is related to an element, resonates with a color and is related to specific issues.  (The colors are related to the spectrum of the rainbow.)  Our chakras are very complex, especially the root chakra.  My intention with this subject is to introduce you to the chakras and give you a basic knowledge so that if you can identify an imbalance you will be able to explore further in order to help your self bring it back into balance.
The Sanskrit name for the base chakra is Muladhara.  Our root chakra is located at the base of the trunk of our body.  This chakra involves our feet, legs, large intestine, and the tailbone section of our spine.  (Some books say the hips, lower back and genitals are related to the root chakra and some books say those parts are related to the 2nd chakra.)  The root chakra is related to the earth element and it is mother earth that supports our ‘root’.
The second chakra’s sanskrit name is Svadhisthana.  The element in connection to the second chakra iswater. Oddly, the color that resonates with this chakra is orange.  It seems strange since water is not associated with this color.  It is located between the navel and root chakra (lowest area of the trunk of our body).
The main subjects related to this chakra are the emotions and sexuality.  So like that of water, the goal of this chakra is fluidity- keeping the energy in the body moving.  Like the tides of the sea going in and out, back and forth, so is that of our emotions.  The energy needs to keep moving and experiencing change to stay fresh, otherwise it becomes stagnate.  This leads to the definition of emotion, which is: energy in motion.


CHARGE!  Get ready, get set, GO!  This is our third chakra!  Third chakra’s element is fire and this is our energy center that gives us our, “Get Up and GO!”  Think of the third chakra like your pilot light in your oven (a gas oven).  If the pilot light in your oven goes out, there is no cooking to be done and such is the case with this chakra.  Hence, it is good to find your fire to keep the spark, if things are to get done.
Our third chakra is located in the solar plexus region of our body.  It is found between the sternum and navel. Yellow is the color that resonates with the frequency of this chakra.  It is ruled by the planet Mars (also related to the sun).  Manipura is the Sanskrit name.

View other’s successes, as inspiration and confirmation that you, too, can have whatever you want. Tell yourself, without a trace of bitterness, that everyone, including yourself, deserves to have a peaceful, pleasurable life. If there’s something about another’s life that really excites you, use that feeling to motivate you! Be thankful that the other person helped you uncover your goals, so you’re now clear about what you want.

* Every minute there are many functions being carried out simultaneously within our bodies and for all these functions to be carried out smoothly one basic requirement is necessary: The body’s acid alkaline balance (or the pH level) must be maintained for the immune system to fight diseases and for cell degeneration (aging, illness and poor health) to be prevented.
* A healthy body needs what is called a healthy pH level.  The pH level is a measure of the total acid alkaline balance in our bodies.  The acid alkaline balance should ideally be at a ration of 1 is to 4 for optimum health. Where for every one part of acid there are four alkaline parts. This can be easily maintained by eating foods in a similar acid alkaline ratio. We should make sure that about 80 % of our food intake is alkaline in nature while only 20 % of the total food intake is acidic. When we start to consume more of acidic foods our body ph tilts towards the acid side.
