      Post Techniques to open the Root Chakra

      Techniques to open the Root Chakra
      Using the body and becoming aware of it


      The Root chakra, being the first chakra, is the most physical one. This means that any activity that makes one more aware of the body, will strengthen this chakra.

      This particularly goes for physical activity. One can do sports, martial arts, walking, yoga, Tai Chi, it all helps. But also house-cleaning, manual dishwashing and car-cleaning. It is important not to do things that make one insensitive to pain and not to overdo it. Exhaustion is just not good.

      Zen meditation is an activity that seems to be the contrary of physical, but actually is. This can make one very aware of the body.


      Grounding

      The Root chakra is particularly about connecting to the ground. Expressions like "Be on firm ground" and "Getting on your feet again" convey a good connection and an open Root chakra. "To lose ground" and "Getting swept off your feet" convey a closed (or almost closed) Root chakra. When your Root chakra is closed too far, you may actually feel that your feet don't seem to really touch the ground.

      This is an exercise to strengthen this connection to the ground.

      Stand up straight and relaxed.
      Put your feet shoulder width apart.
      Slightly bend your knees.
      Put your pelvis somewhat forward.
      Keep your body balanced, so that your weight is evenly distributed over the soles of your feet.
      Sink your weight downward.

      Keep in this position for several minutes.


      Contracting bottom muscles

      By contracting the muscles that are between the anus and the genitals, the Root Chakra is stimulated. At each inhalation, contract these muscles inward, at each exhalation, relax. Do this for a few minutes.

      This can be done while sitting, standing or walking.

      That's interesting, but isn't Lucid Dreaming losing your human body and going into your mind?

      What do you mean irrelevant? Never heard of the ancient art of lucid dreaming, also known as dream yoga?

      seems like it's in the wrong section (irrelevant), and it's not a technique to 'open' the root chakra (misleading).

      This seems like a good technique to strengthen your awareness of your body. I think that being more aware of yourself during the day will help you stay more aware in your dreams.

      This is one exercise to stimulate the opening of your root chakra.When you are saying that this is misleading then you dont have much information about chakras as you think you know.

      There are 4 different ways into opening chakras that are:

      -Meditation/yoga
      -Body exercises
      -Energy work/crystals
      -Hipnosis

      Its always good to include some meditation and some body exercises for maximum performance.

      I will explain some body exercises and if some Yoga meditation exercises

      I'd steer away from the notion of 'opening' chakras. it's not as if though suddenly you do the right position and flex the muscle and *poof* your chakra is open and you can now levitate. a more realistic approach is to familiarize yourself with the energetic pathways in your body, of which the chakras are a major part. If you are seriously interested in this pursuit, I recommend checking out what Robert Bruce has written--it is purely practical and effective and you don't have to wade through esoteric nonsense to begin actually experiencing results. A lot of the more traditional methods entail great deals of visualization, posture and breathing exercises, but Bruce's method focuses on so-called 'tactile imaging' which is much easier for those of us not well-versed in the cultural and philosophical specifics of eastern esotericism. While this sort of practice doesn't actually result in "attaining lucidity", it does wonders for clarity and control within dreams, and seems to be the most reliable method to learn how to consistently WILD.

      Yeah I have been looking a while for reliable sources on this, I always do the bluebody-relaxation technique and after that visualize my chakras before entering a WILD because some people on this forum recommend this, I've googled on Robert Bruce, and I have indeed found much interesting information and more than I could hope for, he also tells me how to visualize the chakras whats exactly what I been looking for, thx for the info ^^
