We learn to be in peace, have gratitude and give unconditional love to others from all the Holy Books and discourses. We wish to follow it as well but still, the majority of people fail to do it and in some cases, they are able to do it initially and later again they fall. WHY?
The main reason is that we learn or try to accept others or be grateful to others more than accepting ourselves. Gratitude comes from the Heart Chakra. If a person tries to go to the higher chakras without sorting out the lower chakras then there will be a fall. Energy travels from the way down to up. It never goes the opposite way. Chakras play a very important role. Root chakra is our first chakra. Till the time we have not sorted out our root chakra, nothing can come in harmony. If your root chakra is balanced then this will give harmony in all the chakras and help in balancing them or else all the chakras will get disturbed.

A while back I attended a meditation workshop of SSY in Maharashtra, I learned 3 mantras that I call magic mantras now.
I am nobody
I am '0'
Everything is OK
I saw the root of every problem was self-doubt. Our identity lets us see our true infinite potential. We are the same energy as the Super-Conscious, Same light, Same Glow. We are Always. Only the body is transformed. There is no death. There are different journeys. The moment we surrender to our thoughts and self-doubt, it imprisons us. It makes us fearful about our survival. Today I call these lines my magic mantras. This makes the life journey effortless. It is more of a play. I have seen a huge shift in my life and I am blessed by the Universe to pass this knowledge on to others, who I met in my journey. I am blessed to see a positive shift in their lives too. So, Be the Truth, as Bhagwat Gita guides. Truth empowers us. Being in this thought automatically balances your Root chakra, making our life beautiful. Life is a game and we all are players. Let's enjoy it and nourish our inner child.
Loads of love
