Everything is energy– from the thoughts we think, to the air we breath, to the body we occupy, to the stars in the sky. Our universe is made up of an unimaginable amount of energetic vibrating atoms, arranging themselves into the molecules and cells that make up every living and nonliving entity in existence.
Your body, too, is made up of energy and seven energy centers referred to as ‘chakras’ in Eastern metaphyiscal theories of medicine. When any of your seven energy centers, or chakras, are blocked you experience dis-ease in the body, such as psychological discomfort and/or illness.
The root chakra is located at the base of your spine and is responsible for your feeling rooted, grounded, safe and connected in this world.
Food, whether the growing or the eating, can be used as a medium to enhance your root chakra and it’s corresponding feelings of connectedness and belonging.
