In energy healing circles, the root chakra is one of the seven primary chakras (energy centres) we work with.
The root chakra is seen as an energy centre located at the base of the spine. This is not a physical structure in the body but a representation of the energy body at the ‘base of spine’ level.
At the moment, there is no way we can scientifically prove the existence of chakras. However, the objective here is not to generate proof. It is to understand and apply the invaluable wisdom presented by the theory of ‘Chakras.’
Root Chakra Wisdom
As the name suggests, the root chakra is to humans what roots are to plants.
Roots help plants and trees stay grounded to the Earth and serve as a medium for them to receive nourishment.
In the case of humans, the root chakra primarily represents –
- Ability to stay grounded in day-to-day reality on Planet Earth.
- Feelings of safety, security and support
- Matters of survival on the planet
If someone is preoccupied by fantasy and is disconnected from the reality of everyday life, we say they are ungrounded and have an imbalanced root chakra.
Same goes for people who are very fearful and anxious and experience the world as a dangerous place with many threats to their survival.
The root chakra is like the foundation of existence.
One can manage life with a wobbly foundation. But building a strong one can bring in more ease to life.
Contemplate the health of your own root chakra.
Do you feel safe, stable and grounded?
Do you sense any blocks in your root chakra? Are you aware of an incident from your past that is the likely cause of these blocks? If yes, how can you work on them?
Knowing you feel blocked in specific areas is a huge achievement in itself. Awareness of self is the first and most important step of the healing process.
Stay grounded! Stay happy!
