A lot of folks in the New Age community like to focus on the higher Chakras, as their activation often points to a more ‘evolved’ soul. But the truth is, no Chakra is more important than another.
Each serves a vital function to your life and body, and this is especially true of the lowest of the 7 major Chakras: the Root Chakra.
Why the Root Chakra Matters
The Root Chakra is located at the base of the spine – or, the lower Dantian, for my Qigong practitioners.
This is the metaphysical energy center which connects your soul to your physical body, and keeps your spirit grounded in the material world.
The Root Chakra is the engine which drives your desire and ability to meet your most primitive need: physical-world survival!
Everything You Need to Survive
This is why the Root Chakra is associated with both physical and financial health. Metaphysically speaking, they are one-in-the-same.
If you have any doubts, compare those hard-bodied health-nuts at the gym to some of the sicklier people you know. Of the two groups, which seems to have an easier time holding on to cash?
When Your Root Chakra is Balanced
When your Root Chakra is in good working condition – that is, it’s not moving too fast or too slow, or it’s not too open or too closed – it is said to be balanced.
Signs of a balanced Root Chakra include:
- sound health
- financial stability
- good survival instincts
- happy and healthy home-life
Conversely, an imbalanced Root Chakra can result in:
- health problems (especially with the bones, blood, and immune system)
- financial problems (including debt, joblessness, and homelessness)
- severe depression
- dysfunctional home-life
When the Root Chakra Desperately Needs Balanced
Healthy Root Chakra function is pretty much essential for life. If you’re experiencing any of the negative effects of Root Chakra dysfunction – fear not! There are some pretty simple and effective ways to restore this energy center to balance.
But truth be told, the more out-of-whack this Chakra is, the longer it can take to get things back in order. That’s why there’s no time to waste!
First and foremost, you need to get your body as healthy as possible.
If you have an illness or physical disability that’s here to stay – it’s OK! Just do what’s within your power to do. So long as you put the work in, you’ll almost certainly see fantastic results!
That means eating real, organic foodwhenever possible. It means staying hydrated, and getting enough sleep. It means getting some amount of exercise, every day. If you’re bed-ridden and all you can do is move your head and hands, then do that!
Next up is attending to your finances. And that means you have to stop buying stuff you don’t need, and getting rid of the stuff you already have that you don’t need. It means you need to start paying off your debts, and calling in the debts owed to you. And while we’re on the subject, stop loaning out your money. You can be generous later when you’ve re-achieved sound physical and financial health.
If you’re between jobs, get any job! I mean ANY job!
Update your resume. Apply to ANYTHING and EVERYTHING, whether or not you’re qualified for it! If you’re not generating money, you’re in a de facto survival situation! You need to get the financial energy flowing as soon as possible! You can worry about finding a life-long career later.
When you’re not working on your physical health or your job search, the best thing you can do is clean your house!
