The Root or Base Chakra
Zodiacal signs Capricorn, Virgo and Taurus
Furnishes the energy used to create and maintain our foundation.
This is the energy that keeps us on firm ground and provides us with the basic skills to uphold a place in the world
The 4th Ray of "Harmony through Conflict" governs the base chakra or root.
This chakra symbol represents the most earth centered chakra. It stands for our inherited beliefs through our formative years. Self-preservation, personal survival and our identification with the physical world centers in this bottom most of the main seven chakras.
A healthy root chakra connects you with vitality to your family of origin, your immediate society and to the global community. If your 0-7 years were challenging and without love, then this damaged root chakra will function much differently. Issues of survival such as emotional dysfunction, stress, anxiousness, and restlessness will plague you.
Possible fears of letting go, scarcity, poor boundaries, and more. It’s during the 0-7 years that we learn about where we fall in our relationships with siblings, parents, our community, and how we relate to them.
Joint pain, lower backache, elimination problems, obesity, constipation, anorexia, and poor immune system function.
What beliefs did you inherit or learn from your family?
Is there unfinished business between you and your parents?
What limiting beliefs did you learn about personal survival and money?
Do you have personal boundaries that you maintain?
Is it difficult for you to bond with others?
Are you often sick or suffering from illness?
Transcendence of unloving imprints in this chakra
"Others show you yourself and what you need to work on within, by their reflection of your own rejected or denied emotions."
