The root chakra is related to the anus and the adrenal glands. When poorly grounded, your spatial understanding is impaired. You may stumble around physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally. Grounding enhances your ability to function effectively on a day-to-day basis. The root chakra is the grounding force that allows us to connect to the earth energies and empower our beings.
The Roots Chakra deals with the foundation of our existence. The ancient lineage, bloodline and DNA that you inherited from your ancestors affects your roots. The body parts are the spine, limbs, blood, legs, feet, DNA. When we are healing or clearing this chakra, we have to look within our family dynamics what kind of emotional signatures or karma we are carrying as a tribe. Ask questions that will open up this field. Journal with the cycles or patterns that your lifetime exhibits. Take this as a door for you to expand and heal what is needed and let go of these stuck energies in your chakra system.
When this foundation is not rooted in love and trust especially with your immediate family, you are going to deal with self love and self esteem issues. Because there is a wiring in your Central Nervous System that tells you that you are not good enough and that you don’t have the birth right to be here. Your sense of belonging is lost and you don’t feel that you are capable of being loved. The physical symptoms or dis-ease that you will manifest in your body will be around your spine, limbs, CNS, and Immune System.
To release this blockage, you need awareness of the function of your root chakra and be able to connect your “abuse” or lack of self love. When you know where the root of your issues are, you then can proceed to meditate and ask the Ascended Masters and Archangels to heal you. Meditation will bring your soul in connection to God whoever God is for you. The healing energy that you create will transcend your understanding why things happen to you in a bigger picture.
Questions to journal with your Root Chakra:
1. How are your relationships with your parents and siblings?
2. What are your patterns regarding money?
3. Do you have fear with survival?
4. What are your ancestors karma? Consider your family’s cultural heritages: what country are your parents or grandparents from? What is the identity with that country or culture? What is the karmic lesson from that culture? If you have a variety of cultures in your family, what are they? Do these cultures blend easily, or are they in conflict?
5. If any of the seven shadows are affecting your current family, please write these down, and what your gut tells you. Again, for easy reference, the shadows are:
The roots of a large tree spread deep underground, anchoring the tree into the earth, use your creative visualisation to imagine roots, going down from your body plunging into the depths of the planet and spreading out, just like the roots of that tree. Envision the prominent bulky roots extending downwards below the surface, broadening from the base of your spine. These roots are the essence that will, enable you to draw into your body the positive frequency of the mother earth. You are now beginning to feel the awareness of a reaction from the planet deep below the surface coursing into your space. As this occurs, you visualise the bulky roots that are beginning to entwine with the waters inside the planet’s core, these waters represent the unconditional love, healing the rarefied energy of the Earth. As your roots entwine with the Earth energy use your senses to experience the awareness of unconditional love.
