Root Chakra Overview  

Located at the base of the spine, the Root Chakra is the first of the 7 Wisdom energy centers. The color of this chakra is red.  The sacred truth of this chakra is having a Secure Foundation and connection to Mother Earth - feeling safe, grounded, and connected to our bodies and the physical plane. Think of the Root Chakra like you would the roots of a tree.  With healthy, stable roots the tree is powerful, beautiful, and able to grow.  It has the ability to withstand the strongest storms.  Like the roots of the tree, our Root Chakra grounds and connects us to the earth so that we may flourish.  When your Root Chakra is open and vitalized, you feel stable, secure and present in the here and now. Here are a few Root Chakra daily practices you can do to begin activating this chakra.

Our Shadow Self is the part of our inner life that thrives in darkness.   It holds energy that comes from pushing painful experiences out of our conscious awareness. Feelings and experiences we have not dealt with directly go into the shadow.  There, they are held in place by psychological defenses.  Behind these defenses we begin to forget our wholeness of our spiritual self.  This is why shadow work is important.

We all have a shadow self.  When we work with shadows in our root chakra, we deal with survival issues and fear.  When fear dominates our experience, we lose the sense that we have a right to be here.  Yet, there is nothing that disqualifies us from living a whole life. Life itself wants to be conscious.  As we begin to let go of fear, we feel the manifestation of love expressing itself. Click here for more information: Fear - the Shadow side of the Root Chakra.

“The most dangerous psychological mistake is the projection of the shadow onto others: this is the root of almost all conflicts.” (Carl Jung)
