Also called the First Chakra or the Earth Chakra, the Root Chakra relates to our sense of physical security and our ability to provide for life’s necessities. It also relates to our sense of belonging to our family or group.
When opened and balanced, the Root Chakra keeps you grounded and centered. It has to do with survival and safety issues, feeling connected to the earth, and feeling welcome in the world.
The Root Chakra governs sexuality, sensuality, and stability.
In meditations, energy flows from the top (Crown Chakra) to the bottom (Root Chakra), which is symbolic of energy coming from Heaven into Mother Earth. Today I got a message that the Root Chakra is not the end, but rather the beginning. Our goal is to activate and then transcend the Root Chakra. It is a gateway into our Higher Nature.
Energy flowing through us into Mother Earth also flows back into us and gives us healthy energy that helps balance and heal us on all levels. Being grounded with Mother Earth does not require giving up spirituality, but enhances it.
Since the Root Chakra is associated with sex and sensuality, some people think the energy is bad and part of our lower nature. This is not true. It is the source of desire that propels us to higher levels of achievement and evolution.
It doesn't do us any good to ignore our Roots. We are better off if we nurture them, keep them healthy, and understand their purpose in our lives. We must not live in denial of our true nature. My Crystal Bed Experience was helping me see that, and how to live a balanced life.
