If you’re familiar with your chakra system, you might have heard by now how important the root chakra is in relation to your money. Over the next few weeks I’ll be sharing how ALL of our chakras – not just the root – are tied to our relationship to money.
If you are new to the chakra system and understanding your energetic body, start here with this introductory blog post first. Today we’re talking about how the root chakra and your money affect each other.
What is the root chakra and what is its purpose?
The root chakra is the energetic center located at the base of your spine, and the associated color is red. The root chakra is all about grounding, support, your means for survival on Earth. The role of this energy center is to give you what you need to survive in this life (financial and emotional security).
When it is balanced >> you will feel at peace and fulfilled when you think about money and safety – both physically and emotionally.
When it is overactive >> you may feel anxious, fearful, might have lower back pain, digestive problems. Keep in mind that fear’s role is to keep us alive and out of danger (our survival mechanism) so the overactive root chakra is spiking unnecessary fear for you to remedy it. *This is assuming that all your basic needs for survival are met.*
When it is underactive >> (i.e. you have been cared for completely so there has never been a need to raise the alarm for survival), you might find yourself feeling spacey and air-headed, stuck in daydreams, detached from reality.
What does your root chakra have to tell you today?
Connecting with each of our energy centers, our chakras, is a powerful way to support you as you heal your relationship to money. Just as our body gives us messages, our chakras also communicate with us. Ready to give it a try?
Take three, deep, slow breaths in and out with your eyes shut. Bring awareness to your root chakra and the energy surrounding it and spend a few moments feeling the flow of energy. Then ask your root chakra, is it balanced or does it need support? And in which way (under/over active)?
As we focus on change and evolving in our lives and businesses, as we step forward towards the new reality we are calling in, it’s vital that we support and check-in with all of our chakras. Our root chakra, whose role it is to give you what you need to survive (financial and emotional security), is vital on this healing path. The root chakra is arguably one of the most important energy centers to give attention to on your path to healing your relationship to money as our inner world, directly affects our outer world. As you heal at the energetic, root level, you will see shifts in your outer world as a result.
How do you balance your root chakra?
- Various modalities of energy work / healing with intention, including suppressed emotional release work.
- Self-healing within a guided meditative state.
- Integration / shadow-work.
- Intentional belief-work, emotional and thought awareness to shift our patterns and subconscious programming.
The most important thing is to follow your intuition, check-in and connect with your root chakra directly, so you know the best path for you to follow. Look at your root chakra and your energy centers as partners in your growth. Check-in with them, often, to see what they need from you as you evolve and shift into the next phase of your life.
