In every reaction there is a root cause to why we react the way that we do. Out of the 7 Chakras, I began my spiritual awakening journey with the Root Chakra.
The Root Chakra is just as it sounds, dealing with your roots as you are a tree planted in beliefs.
What are your beliefs?
What are morals you stand on?
Are your beliefs and morals based on what you have made a connection to or are they based on what you have been advised?
I found myself turning 30 years of age and lost at the thought of who and what I connected to. I was fearful of so much, being fed by the news and life’s ups and downs. But I made a decision to dig into who I am outside of what the world was showing me.
A few signs that I’ve learned that reveals this particular chakra is blocked is:
Excessive anger and aggression
Obsession with materialistic matters
Causing such reactions like:
nervous and anxious all the time....
empty inside and disconnected from everyone
never feeling that you have enough
shopaholic, needing to buy out of a need to fill a void
anger issues and lack of self control
allowing others to walk over you
The Root Chakra is blocked by fear and various forms of trauma that someone may have experienced. Feeling sluggish and having an eating disorder are two behavior patterns that point out imbalance. Psychological symptoms of blockage include: anxiety disorders, fear, panic attacks, worry, overthinking, depression, nightmares, emotionally disconnected, disconnected from the body, anger or rage.
With all of that being said; hope is not lost!
If you can recognize any of these reactions, habits or patterns within yourself; then you can overcome it! Taking the mind off of auto-pilot mode and you take the wheel of your mind. In order to do that, one must unlearn to reconnect to the roots.
Whatever you feel does not serve the God/Goddess within then it must be let go of in order to be free.
I was such a fearful woman; I was afraid of heights, the ocean, scary movies, the unknown, the “what if’s”, lightning, the dark, being alone in my own home and afraid of being judges. I didn’t realize I was so fearful until someone pointed it out to me. And how thankful I am now for that wake up call!
In my realization, I woke up to my strength and became courages! It doesn’t mean I don’t get afraid, it just means I won’t act in fear. Because GOD DID NOT GIVE ME A SPIRIT OF FEAR BUT OF POWER, LOVE AND A SOUND MIND! It doesn’t mean that ‘scary’ situations won’t form against you but it does mean THEY WONT PROSPER!!
So take a look within and see what roots you have planted that needs to be dug up. BE GENTLE WITH YOURSELF! In love dig up those roots, recognizing that they have been planted by those who don’t understand the Goddess within. That you may have planted them as a defense mechanism. Whatever your reason, it’s your reason and you did it for you. So in love and gentleness replant and be empowered!
peace and love always...
