Balance Your Root Chakra With This F-Word & Get Grounded (Video)

NOTE: If you’d like to balance your other chakras too, here are the rest of the articles in this “F-Word” Series:

Everybody should know the basics about their chakras. After all, your chakras are the blueprint for your life. But learning and remembering your seven bodily energy centers can be a little daunting at first. I often find that my clients who are new to the concept of chakras have difficulty differentiating between them. They go into something I call “chakra overwhelm.”

Hopefully over the next seven weeks, I’ll help you cut through the overwhelm. I’m going to present the chakras in a very simple way that will help you to easily learn and remember each one’s essence – for good.

I’m going to associate each chakra with a memorable F-WORD (and no, none of them will be that one). I have found that a simple pneumonic device like having all the reminder words start with “F”, not only makes it remembering the chakras easier, but it also makes it more fun.

So, here we go…

Today’s F-WORD is for the first chakra that resides at the very base of your spine and governs your tailbone, legs and feet.

The word is FOUNDATION.

The first chakra represents our physical foundation for everything in our life – which makes sense, since it governs the parts of the body which are literally the foundation that the other body parts rest on.

This foundational chakra develops from inside the womb until age 7, with the deepest seated (and seeded!) development happening from the womb through the first year of life.

The first chakra is all about your roots, your family and your feelings of safety and security. It’s centered around survival and getting your basic needs met – which is certainly the foundational part of your existence.

It is also related to your grounded energy, your relationship with Mother Earth and your overall health and ability to fully inhabit your body and appreciate your physical existence and enjoy any sort of wealth.

It sets the stage, that is, the literal foundation for everything else you can build in your life.

Because of this, it’s about your ability to take care of yourself and take full responsibility for your own destiny, and it governs your basic relationship with money and career.

The first chakra is the foundation to everything in your life. Just as a tall redwood needs super-embedded roots and a high-reaching skyscraper needs an extra deep foundation, we humans need our first chakra to be really strong if we want to live a fully expanded life.

This means that if you had an unusually unsafe environment between the time you were conceived and your first year or two of life, you may need to do some deep, first chakra work to create a solid foundation in your life.  Body-oriented and subconscious tactics – like yoga, somatic therapy, hypnotherapy and Chakra Boosters Healing Tattoos™ — will be the most effective healing tools, since the trauma took place at a pre-verbal stage in your life.

Of course, early life trauma is not the only reason that you may feel drawn to enhance your first chakra energy. If you’re moving, switching jobs or just feeling as if your roots are shaky, you might want to take a little time to reinforce your foundation. I changed my whole life by getting a real root tattoo.
