The essence of the Hara Chakra is knowing that what we have and do is good enough! This is the center of physical procreation and the chakra directly affecting sexual maturation. It controls our appetites for food, sex, and pleasure. If we are too indulgent we burn up vital life fuel required by other systems in our body. If we hold back too much energy from the physical part of our lives, we become hungry for what we deny ourselves. Finding the balance between control and letting go is essential for this chakra to function.
The Hara Chakra is concerned with our physical well-being. This means that we learn to honor the body by giving it what it needs to thrive – nutritious food, plenty of rest, and fun, work, and exercise.
This Chakra is also concerned with the quality of deservedness. When we feel that we truly deserve the good we long for, we treat ourselves well. We give ourselves permission to have the things we want.
Pleasure is another quality of the Hara Chakra. It concerns our ability to receive and allow more pleasure into our lives. When we make our lives complex, we strip away the pleasure from our experiences. Finding what is simple can generate joy and pleasure, which nourish the Hara Chakra.
It takes discipline and maturity to balance this chakra. Abusing our life force depletes our vital energy and leaves us open to disease and emotional unbalance.
A healthy Hara Chakra has defined limits that are neither too open nor too closed. Respecting these limits nourishes the life of the body and lets us know that we are enough for ourselves.
