Part 1 – Root Chakra
Chakras are energy centres in our bodies, with each chakra governing major aspects of who we are on the physical, mental/emotional, and spiritual levels. For all areas of our lives, such as health, wealth, and relationships, to be in harmony with each other, our chakras must be aligned.
Our primal needs in life are our safety, security, and survival. If these needs are threatened, we become afraid.
We may be afraid of impending death, lack of money, or fear of being attacked by an unknown enemy. You may or may not know that it is about your root chakra when it comes to fear. Red in colour, this chakra governs those primal needs, and if they are not satisfied, fear settles in, causing an imbalance in the energetic system. When this happens, the effect on our lives, in general, is disastrous.
We are currently living in stressful times, and our safety and security have been fundamentally threatened in many ways for the past 15 months.
Fear is everywhere around us, and because of what is happening in our world at the moment or for many other reasons personal to you, you may be afraid for your safety and that of your loved ones.
Being afraid brings up an intense feeling that either paralyses you completely or gives you a burst of energy to respond to perceived dangers. Imagine being chased by a tiger or a mad dog. You know that if they get hold of you, not only will your life be over, you will also suffer from excruciating pain and torture. Whether the situation is real or imagined, your body reacts in the same way. It goes in fight or flight mode, and the sudden release of hormones is exhausting.
If you do not get out of the fight or flight mode, your body begins to become tired, your immune system declines, and according to recent research, your brain can even begin to become toxic.
So, living in constant fear of impending disaster can have a negative effect on your health in general.
Physical symptoms of root chakra issues are:
- General fatigued
- Bladder and colon disorders
- Lower back problems.
- Problems with left arm, leg, or foot.
Furthermore, there is a negative impact on the energetic level. What we fear most will be realised without a shadow of a doubt because the misalignment of our chakras will attract to us the very thing that we are afraid of.
Allowing yourself to be ruled by fear is the fastest way for you to destroy your health and well-being slowly but surely. The best way to change this state of being is to keep the flow of positivity going. Easier said than done because all these negative thought patterns are encoded in our psyche and energy field.
Below is a simple exercise for you to test your level of fear and release it easily.
If you know your fear (death, illness, lack of money, fear for your loved ones, etc.), let’s do a little test.
Close your eyes.
Take a few deep breaths.
Feel where this fear is in your body. It could be in your tummy, your throat area, or your heart.
Put your attention on this area of your body.
You may find that you experience some kind of sensation.
The experience is different for each one of us.
You may have a feeling of uneasiness.
An intense feeling of fear itself.
Or something you cannot put your finger on.
When your root chakra is out of balance, you need to be grounded.
Sit with your feet flat on the ground.
Gently close your eyes.
Take a few deep breaths and let your body relax.
Imagine roots growing from the soles of your feet deep into the ground.
Now, as you breathe in, feel red energy coming up your roots up into your root chakra.
As you breathe out, imagine dark clouds flowing out of your root chakra, down your legs deep, deep into the ground.
Breathe in red energy into your root chakra and breath out dark clouds from the root chakra deep into the ground.
Repeat the above exercise three times.
After that, gradually bring your attention back to the space where you are now.
Take a few deep breaths.
Feel yourself very grounded.
