Unstable? Insecure? Having a hard time feeling grounded, healthy, secure and present in every potentially beautiful moment? Do you have the feeling that life is somehow passing you by? If you are experiencing these fears and instabilities, it is likely that you are imbalanced in your Root Chakra, the foundation of the entire energy system. The Root Chakra controls our sense of security, strength, and peace with our life, our bodies, and our selves.
As the first visible signs of spring roll in, now is a perfect time to focus on grounding ourselves into the present so that we can make the most of the warm, vibrant months ahead. Many people confuse being grounded with being stagnant or lazy, but a healthy Root Chakra is anything but! In fact, feelings of sloth and fatigue often mean that one’s root energy is not flowing properly. A healthy root connects us to the earth, to our physical bodies, and allows us to draw the most efficient energy from our food, water, and the ground beneath our feet. A vibrant root brings a joyful energy that trusts life to bring us the things that will keep us nourished and secure. In many ways, the Root Chakra is the most important one of them all. It sets the tone for our entire system, allowing the other six primary chakras to function at their best. Because of our desire for spiritual connection or mystical experience, many people ignore the Root Chakra in favor of the more “spiritual” higher chakras. This is a mistake; opening the higher chakras without a healthy root is a recipe for headaches, anxiety, and a disconnection with the pleasures of the human experience. Not a pleasant feeling. We find our greatest power (and deepest satisfaction) when our minds, bodies, and spirits are working in harmony.
I encourage you to take some time now to nurture and balance this energy center so that you can welcome the warm weather with an energy and presence that will ensure that you get the most enjoyment out of the coming spring and summer.
