You may expect this to be a blog about ancestry. Perhaps it is, in a way. It's about your heritage of being a human being. About having a physical body and being connected to the earth.
Your root chakra is your energy center located at the perineum that has to do with your physical survival and grounding. When your root chakra is open and balanced, you feel still, secure and stable. Have you ever described someone in root chakra terms? Perhaps you said, "She's really grounded" or "He has his feet firmly planted on the ground." How do you feel around these people. It's likely that you feel calm and secure. A person who is grounded is connected to mother earth and is connected to his or her instincts, which is something we all share. When you are experiencing your root, you naturally experience the moment, your body, your sense of knowing that you belong on this earth at this time. In fact, you have a right to not only be here, but a right to create and have and experience what you have created in your physical reality. Did someone say manifesting? Yes! From a healthy place of connection, your open root chakra helps you to manifest abundance in this physical plane of existence.
There is so much that you can do to open and balance your root chakra. Here are just a few: Spend more time in nature, do physical activities, feel your feet firmly rooted in the ground, eat mindfully, release fear, and affirm that you are safe and abundant (not only with words, but with the energy of belief as well). Experience your body and who you are connected to the abundant and nurturing mother earth at this time. By doing this, you reclaim your energy and your root.
