Let’s start with the basics…
Imagine water flowing through a creek, much like the energy flows through your body. There are several pools where the water swirls around before flowing on.
These pools are like our chakras, forming spiralling energy within our consciousness.
Here’s the thing. If nothing else were around this creek, it would flow pure and clear. However, life is messy, and things tend to fall into the creek.
And then what happens? The creek can’t flow!
However if we open the paths between the things, the energy flows, and amazing transformation is in order.
Each pool of energy has a purpose and can be blocked by a specific kind of emotional muck. Opening the chakras is an intense experience. And once you begin this process, your life will never be the same.
Now… Let’s begin with your biggest obstacle…
Your Weakest Chakra Is… The Root Chakra
In Sanskrit, this Chakra is called Muladhara, comes from the words Mula, which means “root” and Dhara, which means “support”. It’s red in colour and is located at the very base of your spine, near your tailbone. It goes up to just below your belly button.
Therefore, this chakra’s role is to ground all of your energy with the Earth.
This means the Root Chakra focuses on the fundamentals, your day-to-day survival here on Earth. In ancient times, it meant having enough to eat to stave off starvation merely surviving the elements.
In modern times however, this means financial and emotional security. The basic questions transcending “What do I eat?” and “What do I wear?” to “Who do I love?” and “How do I make money?”
What’s The Block?
That’s right. Because the Earth Chakra deals with issues of survival… What happens in uncertain times like this? How do you survive and thrive? What can you do when everything you know seems to be under threat.
As a result, you struggle with anxiety. You are scared with what’s going on in the world. Every news report fills you with trepidation. Even if there’s no justification for it!
In other words, an overactive root chakra will shout messages of survival, even when no real threat is there. Physically, you might have digestive problems, lower back issues, hip pain, and ovarian cysts in women or prostate issues in men.
What If There’s Too Little of It?
If you had things easy… If your survival needs have generally been taken care of… This chakra may not have been very active throughout your life.
Because of that, contentment often crosses over into complacency, and you lack the drive to make something of yourself and seize your glorious destiny.
Frequent symptoms include daydreaming, trouble concentrating or simply feeling like your “head’s in the clouds”, without fulfilling your powerful potential. In fact, people may say you’re the dreamy one that has a ton of ideas, but never actually pulls the trigger on any of them.
So while it may not cause a crisis, turbo-charging the chakra is imperative so you can start meeting the purpose far bigger than yourself and grant you a meaningful existence.
Unblock Your Root Chakra
Don’t take things for granted, start thanking the universe. Honestly, being grateful is already a good enough step with most people.
There’s some simple things you can do that help your root chakra to be further revved up.
When this chakra starts getting energised, you’ll be more in touch with myself. The everyday will be touched with meaning and purpose. You’ll start vibrating at a near-heavenly level.
However, you need to remove all doubt in your head, so you can get the necessary wisdom to create breakthroughs in your life.
And you’re merely 2 steps away from the most glorious awakening!
