December's Bloom

Mantra: LAM

I believe that this month, December, is the perfect time to nurture our connection with our foundation and experience the power of grounding. 

For those of us from a Christian background, like myself, December is the month of Christmas, family reunions, gifts, and food. 

It's a beautiful opportunity to take a moment of stillness, rather than rushing around and losing the true essence of Christmas, which is the connection within ourselves, others, and our roots.

We grew up in a culture that teaches us how to behave in the external world, how to be a good student, a good son or daughter, and a good parent. 

Our life is founded on having a good job, a house, and a family. Everything we do, we do to satisfy the 2 basic needs of every human being: safeness and love. We used to look for these needs outside the relationship with others rather than from within. 

Yoga is a change in perception, an inner awakening to find this sense of safeness, security, and love from the inside, connecting ourselves to our basic foundation and the earth. 

The earth gives us the fundamental support to release our bodies, fears, and anxieties. The stillness offered by the earth through the relation of the force of gravity allows us to connect ourselves with the source of our safeness. 

Place yourself in a comfortable position in contact with the ground and repeat, silently in your mind, the following affirmations to cultivate this sense of peace, safeness, and love from within. 

  • I am grounded.

  • The earth provides a safe place for me.

  • I feel safe and secure.

  • The earth provides a safe place for me.

  • I love my body and trust its wisdom.

  • I have self-love and I take care of my well-being.

  • I trust the universe that supports me.

Mantra: LAM

LAM is associated with one of the seven main energy centers, or chakras, in the body. Each chakra is linked to specific sounds or mantras, and "LAM" corresponds to the Muladhara Chakra, also known as the Root Chakra.

The Root Chakra, located at the base of the spine, is associated with the element Earth and is considered the foundation of the chakra system. It represents stability, grounding, and a sense of belonging. Chanting the mantra "LAM" is believed to activate and balance the energy of the Root Chakra, promoting a sense of security, stability, and connection to the earth. Practitioners may incorporate chanting or meditation on this mantra as part of their yoga or meditation practice to enhance these qualities and balance the energy within the Muladhara Chakra.
