There is a great deal of information available today concerning the health benefits of certain foods. More recently, research is discovering that eating specific foods may support and energize your energy system known as chakras. These promote better health and a sense of well being.
People, animals, things in nature and even inanimate objects have a vibrational energy pattern, each as unique as a snowflake, with no two alike. Each of the seven chakras has a distinct energy pattern reflecting the color of their vibration.
The energy found in foods work together to provide us with the appealing color, the feel of that food in our hands and the alluring smell that often draws us near. Studies have found that foods grown on trees have a different energy than foods grown in the ground. This ultimately creates variations in how our energy systems react to what we eat.
When you are grocery shopping, what is the first thing that draws you to a certain food? It may be the color that catches your eye and you are actually responding to the vibration of that food. What is the next thing you experience? Is it the aroma or picking it up and holding it in your hand? In this routine series of events, you are actually absorbing the vibrational energy of that food, through sight, smell and tactile sensations. These components contribute to the reactions our bodies have when we consume them.
Just as each of the seven chakras has a unique vibration reflecting that color, so do foods. When these foods are consumed, it reflects changes in our energy patterns and sense of well being. The root chakra, a rich and vibrant red is also known as the “grounding” chakra. It is related to our health, physical and material security. It is also tied to our survival instincts, safety and our innate need to exist as an individual. It is the foundation of all chakra energy centers that connects us with our home, family, support system, social network and religious traditions. All other chakras are connected through the Root Chakra, receiving only the energy that can pass through it. This makes it the most important in maintaining balance and alignment.
The foods believed to support the root chakra are beets, red peppers, cranberries, pomegranates, strawberries, tomatoes, apples and cherries. These foods can have a restorative effect on the body and psyche when the root chakra is unbalanced.
When your root chakra is unbalanced or closed, you may feel a lack of confidence, self-esteem and insecurity. Goals seem unachievable, and you may feel fear and self-doubt. In addition to thinking about the vibrational color of foods, begin to think about how they grow and the qualities they represent with respect to the chakra. The beet grows beneath the ground in clusters, safe, secure and supported by the earth. Their texture is firm and strong. These qualities can be absorbed into the body through their vibrational energy when
eaten in their natural state.
When the root chakra is centered and grounded, you feel healthy, alive, safe and secure. You have the ability to move forward in life with confidence and know that life supports you. Your needs are being met and you feel connected to life.
When your root chakra is open, you love life and feel empowered to accomplish anything. If you want to support your root chakra, eat a red apple. Think about how apples are grown and what effect that will have on you. An apple is off the ground, grown high in a tree, with a great peripheral view of the world. They hold steadfast to their branches and fall only when ready. They are firm and sweet, all characteristics supporting a balanced, open root chakra.
