Raising Kundalini energy is a challenge -- one that I'm taking on with full-speed ahead. I've learned that it's OK to have set-backs in yoga and in health because those mis-steps help you to further align yourself with your steady progress and your growth to change and expand.My focus is to strenghten and broaden my root chakra. With that in mind I've been working with various poses such as Janu Sirsasana (Head-to-Knee Forward Bend) to build the stamina in those areas and help me become more grounded in my 1st chakra. Strongly imagining the color red swirling clockwise from the beginning of my root chakra all the way to the tips of my feet during my meditation has been of great benefit as well. I still have a ways to go but starting with meditation and sound therapy has put me on the road to healing. Exploring the relationship between massage and chakra therapy is another part of my journey. Pulling all these resources together is having a synergistic effect that is profounding changing my approach to health. Going ahead I know that blending several different methods together to create a whole picture is where my path will eventually lead me.
