THE FIRST CHAKRA represents your family connection and the foundation of your emotional and mental center. It helps keep you grounded. Organs associated with the First Chakra include muscles, bones, hip joints, spine, blood, and immune system. Spiritual and emotional issues that can block energy in the First Chakra include when to feel safe and secure in the world, knowing when to trust or mistrust, knowing when to feel fear, and finding a balance between independence and dependence. Physical dysfunctions that can occur are: back pain, scoliosis, rectal cancer, fibromyalgia, arthritis, and skin problems.
This is the root of your being and establishes the deepest connections with your physical body, your environment and with the Earth. it is your survival center. Your fight and flight response is initiated from this chakra. This is your primal, animal nature.The energy of the ROOT chakra allows us to harness courage, resourcefulness and the will to live during trying times. It connects us with spiritual energies of our ancestors, their challenges and their triumphs.Since Base Chakra carries our ancestral memories, basically everyone experiences challenges or blockages within Chakra. War, famine, natural disasters, and any events that threaten our basic survival, are all recorded within energies of the first chakra.These memories are imprinted in the subtle body and are passed down from generation to generation creating unconscious generational patterns.
It is our work to take responsibility for our own lives and bring to light that which is unconscious. Exerts from Chakra Anatomy
When your Root Chakra is STRONG you are in the state where you love your career and feel rewarded for being good at it. You have the ability to make, save and invest finances. You have enough money to buy what you require, without feeling guilty afterwards. You feel wanted and loved by your friends and family, and you feel good about yourself when you look in the mirror, both physically and emotionally.
If your Root Chakra is WEAK or CLOSED you tend to get stuck in an unfulfilling and unrewarding career, and you never seem to have enough money, which leaves you worried and in debt. You may suffer from weight or body issues, which leave you feeling unworthy and uncomfortable in your own skin.
Note: The first lower chakras are the essential energy centers that must be activated and healed in order to ascend higher in a healthy holistic manner with integrity. Often people make the error of wanting to skip the lower chakras, activate and work with the higher chakras. Without a healthy root, or Shakti (second chakra for women) center we may come tumbling down....life will give us a few cosmic slaps!
Be sure to begin your chakra healing jounrey with the ROOT!
Interesting food for though: I heard a while back that Hitler was a master of the 6th (third Eye) Chakra, but he by passed the Heart Chakra, which was his downfall!
His cohorts were masters of the 2nd Chakra, able to manipulate the masses with a sense of basic survival empowerment.
