Your root chakra is important to you being able to feel safe, secure and manifest and keep money in your life. Root chakra healing is a great gift to yourself if you wish to finally free yourself of feeling scattered, broken and unsafe. Here’s some more information to get you started on your root chakra healing journey.
Where is your Root chakra located
Your Root chakra is located at the base of your spine, or your tailbone. The color is red. If you could hear your root chakra moving, it would be a very low, slow moving sound.
Life aspects housed in your Root chakra
In your Root chakra lies your ability to feel safe, grounded and secure. It’s also where you are able to pull in energy and manifest your desires. The root chakra is also where money issues are held. These issues will continue to haunt you until root chakra healing takes place through doing your inner work. Also, it’s in your Root chakra where you’re able to connect with Mother Earth and feel supported and loved by her.
Reasons your Root chakra may be clogged
Your Root chakra is the first to form and become impacted by your circumstances in life. Between the ages of 0-2 has the most impact on your root chakra. People born into chaotic, abusive or turbulent lives as a baby often have root chakra issues as adults. If an infant or toddler doesn’t feel safe and loved then, it shows up later in life. Common root chakra issues are “being broke” all the time, never feeling safe, like you don’t belong anywhere, and generally scattered and ungrounded. By discovering where these issues are housed you can now turn your focus to root chakra healing.
Root chakra healing tips
Your root chakra is pretty easy and fun to work with. One of the best ways is to go outside in nature and sit in the grass or on the ground, sand, etc.. Close your eyes and imagine a red ball of light at your tailbone. Put your awareness there and hold it for as long as you can. See that ball of light growing brighter and bigger. Imagine that you have a grounding cord coming from your root chakra and going down deep inside Mother Earth. Through this cord you can release anything you wish, anytime. Release any old energy that feels stuck there and ask that it be sent down to Mother Earth, where it may be purified and recycled.
Additionally, using mantras during meditation can help you with Root chakra healing. So try saying mantras like “I Belong”, “I am Safe and Secure”, “I always have more than enough money” or “I am supported by Mother Earth”. When you regularly work with your root chakra and focus on being aware of it, opening it and clearing it, your root chakra will become heathier and more balanced.
