Is your Muladhara/Root Chakra balanced?

I know mine is not.  If any of these resonate with you it may indicate attention to the first chakra is needed.

  • If you feel you've lost trust in life
  • If you're easily overwhelmed by life
  • If you are constantly looking for security in life
  • If you suffer from sciatica or throw your back out
  • If you have a tendency toward back pain
  • If you have problems with your colon and elimination
  • If you don't feel present in your body
  • If you feel afraid of life
  • If you feel isolated, abandoned
  • If you have difficulty manifesting what is needed in life
  • If you feel you are lost
  • If bad habits and addictions are ruling your life 
A person with a balanced Muladhara has a powerful will to live, is grounded in life, inner strength, passion and a sense of trust and security in life and themselves.  Tend to be steady on their feet and not easily thrown by circumstances surrounded them.  

I can tell by the way I am struggling to create my pieces of art that I still need work.  I can journal all my emotions, however, translating that onto my art journal page has become somewhat of a challenge. Which is the reason I am trying to art journal one page a week.  I want to see and share my progression with you.  This last weekend I was inspired to create my Root Chakra page on a 11 x 14 canvas that I picked up at Big Lots.  I was unable to start it until Saturday afternoon.  Then it progressed.  I'm still working on it but here is the start.  

I used acrylic paints for the background.  Red, White, and Black.  I was inspired by the idea of dualism and looking beyond it, which inspired the black and white background.  I believe in order to balance this chakra I must go beyond this state of thinking.

I then used a CD to create a circle.  I added paint to it, put it on the canvas and rotated it to create a circle.  I then spray painted, in silver, 7 little circles, added a flower with a heart shaped brad.  The buttons were added last.  So far, I'm loving it.

Used some rubber bands and mini clothes pins and laid them down as stencils a la Traci Bautista and spray inked them in red and added the word RED.  I then took some bleach and a stamp.  I dipped my stamp in a bleach soaked face towel and stamped the canvas wherever I felt it was needed.  It looks more prominent on the light side.  I like how it looks textured and not recognizable.

Wishing you lots of healing and exploring!
