Chakra Earrings – Root Chakra, Red Enamel, 1st
The Hindu word for the first chakra is Muladhara meaning root. It is positioned at the very base of the spine. Made of sterling silver and enamel and approximately 1/2″ diameter in size, these Jeffrey David earrings were inspired by a Hindu design that is useful for balancing the root chakra.
When in balance the root chakra gives a sense of belonging and security. It connects one to the physical plane of existence and is the source of self-preservation and survival. When one has no “roots” there is a feeling of disconnection and fear for safety. Our most basic needs are governed by this chakra, and financial stress and feelings of dependency are negative emotions that arise when it is not functioning properly. Possible physical effects of imbalance manifest in the sacrum and lower lumbar vertebrae; also, the elimination processes may suffer.
To help balance the root chakra it is helpful to spend time outside and walk barefoot on the earth. Gardening is greatly beneficial to Muladhara. Another technique to bring this chakra into balance is to relax oneself and visualize the color red while repeating the Hindu chant LAM. Hold your intention where your seat connects to the ground and allow the sound to vibrate there. This exercise energizes the 1st chakra. Wearing the sterling silver Jeffrey David earrings will give further benefit. Gemstones that resonate on a harmonious frequency with this 1st chakra are black tourmaline, smokey quartz, bloodstone, hematite, onyx and pipestone. The representative color red is symbolic of the element earth.
