Chakra Healing – Root Chakra

Chakras are energy vortexes located throughout our body which regulate the flow of energy through our energy system. The functioning of the chakras reflect how we chooseChakra Healing - Root Chakra to respond to conditions in our life. We open and close our chakras when we decide what to think and what to feel.

We will be focusing on the 7 major chakras. I will discuss each chakra’s purpose and the archetype representing each chakra. You will learn how to tell if the chakra is out of balance as well as how to heal it using energy and crystals.

The Root Chakra is located at the perineum between the anus and the sex organs. The color of this chakra is red. The parts of the body affected by this chakra are the lymph system, skeleton system (teeth and bones), the prostate gland in men, the sacral plexus, the bladder and elimination system, and the lower extremities (legs – feet, ankles , etc.). Also the nose, since it is the organ of the sense of smell, and associated with survival. The endocrine gland associated with this chakra is the adrenal glands.

This chakra represents security, survival, trust, the relationship with money, home, job. The ability to be grounded, to be present in the here and now. The ability to allow one’s self to be nourished, in the sense of allowing one’s Inner Being to be satisfied. This chakra also reflects a person’s connection with their mother, and with Mother Earth. How the person feels about being on the earth and their connection with the physical body.

The Root Chakra channels the earth’s energy up to our higher chakra centers and helps to ground us on the physical plane. The more we ground ourselves the greater chance we have of making our dreams real and developing into the people we would like to become. When we lose our connection to the earth, we cut ourselves off from the healing source of Mother Earth. We disconnect ourselves from our ability to lovingly care for and nourish ourselves as well as to provide the physical comforts we need. When we become disconnected, we become one of life’s victims.

The dysfunctional archetype of the Root Chakra is the Victim. The victim feels helpless, stuck in a state of fear, with no sense of empowerment. Being a victim is paralyzing on the psyche and the body. In order to survive both emotionally and physically, it is essential to ground these feelings and to reconnect with the earth. Many people may not realize that they carry traces of the victim mentality within their personality, but it may emerge during times of stress or crisis. If they were to stop and experience the feelings they have about life they may be surprised at the depths of the anger, fear, resentment, and frustration they carry inside them.

Chakra Healing - Root ChakraThe healthy archetype of the Root Chakra is the Mother. The Mother represents our ability to nourish and look after the life force within us with care, sensitivity, and vigilance. Integrating this archetype is essential to our development, because she teaches us how to take care of ourselves and to respect our needs. She helps us integrate the feminine aspects of our personality so that we can develop our capacity to love – love ourselves, love all people, love life. As we develop the Mother within ourselves, we stop projecting our needs onto the world around us so that we are able to look after ourselves.

Grounding is essential for balancing the Root Chakra. One way to do this is to imagine roots coming out of your Root Chakra and the soles of your feet going deep into the earth. Imagine yourself being securely attached to Mother Earth, absorbing her loving energy through these roots.

There are many ways to balance our chakras. Many people use crystals such as Ruby, Bloodstone, Smoky Quartz, Hematite, Black Tourmaline, Obsidian, and Garnet. The stones can be carried in a pocket, placed in the area of the Root Chakra or at the bottom of the feet, or made into an essence.

Imagine your Root Chakra. The color of this chakra should be a beautiful, clear red. If you see any other color, remove it and imagine the chakra being filled with red energy. Once you are able to imagine the proper color filling this chakra, imagine it spinning in a clockwise direction. Spin it faster and faster as you fill it with red energy.

Use the ‘Energetic Clearing Technique‘ to heal the issues with your Root Chakra and Victim archetype.

    Hi,

    I am due to have a prostatectomy due to low grade prostate cancer and and am very concerned that removal of my prostate will sever my earth connection. Do you know if this is true?

      No, Rob. That is not true. It just shows that there is damage to your Root Chakra that needs to be healed. Have you investigated Natural Treatments instead of surgery?

        Not fully. I have taken the dietary route and generally live quite healthily, exercise and mental health. I’ve gone through some very distressing stuff in the past 6 months (Prostate cancer diagnosed 12 months ago) that has really shaken me and would like to chat about in a private forum if possible.

        I was due to have surgery 2 months ago and put it off but it is due again next month. I am reticent to do it but am also concerned about the possibility of cancer spreading.

          If it were me, I would do Marijuana Oil. Eat organic meat and vegetables only. The lack of sugar to feed it will starve it out. Baking soda is also being used by many with success. You will know within a few months if that is working.

          If you worry about it spreading, you will create that reality. Use the Energetic Clearing Technique linked in the article to work on issues and concerns. Use it to heal the issues that have distressed you. Also heal any issues about safety, money and sex. I could also help you to heal issues causing this in a Heart and Soul Healing Session.
