5 Things You Need to Know About Your Root Chakra:
Number 1: Location
The root chakra is located in the vicinity of the base of your spine. I actually feel my root chakra connection a little higher up my spine, maybe a few inches up from the base. Always go with your intuition when trying to locate your chakras. There are no right or wrongs when it comes to your body.
Number 2: It is not completely in your body
Your root chakra, like all of your chakras, is not completely in your body. It part of your aura, or luminous energy field and filters into your body. So there's no need to worry that you are going to have to go past your skin to make a connection. The chakra sits right on the top of your aura (energy field), in the vicinity of the base of your spine. It acts like a funnel; spinning and creating an energy vortex that moves through, into your body.
Number 3 : Feeling and activation
This chakra, like many others, can be found and activated through intuitive feeling. Hold your palms together, igniting a feeling of energy between them. Hold them apart a little and still allow that feeling of energy to course between the palms. Now take your palms and hover them over the base of your spine, without touching the skin. Like a magnet, your root chakra will let you know where it is located, as you will feel a change in the energy, the sensation on your hand and perhaps a pull towards a certain area. Depending on how large your energy field is, your hand will either be close to the skin or relatively
far away. You will know how far away the funnel of the chakra is from your body, by the same changes in sensation on your palm. I often feel a bit of resistance, like film on the top of water, under my palm and that is how I know where the surface of the energy field is.
Number 4: Negative charge
Your root chakra holds the the key to a deep and meaningful bond with Mother Earth, in a physical and spiritual sense. Our bodies are naturally negatively charged, and maintain a negative charge from our connection to the Earth. If our bodies become out of balance in this way, we can often feel quite sick and disconnected. For instance, when people have been flying on a long distance flight they can become jet lagged. This can be due to an imbalance in their electrical charge. I find it often serves me to go outside and sit on the grass with bare feet or dig my hands into the soil or sand at the beach. This negatively charges my body again and helps me to activate my root chakra. Feeling connected and one with the Earth and myself once more.
Number 5: Earth Wisdom
Your root chakra's primary function is to ground you. If you are off with the fairies (which I often am!), getting hundreds of spiritual downloads, having epiphanies, and raising your vibration to its highest level, none of it will have any meaning unless you bring it to be used here on Earth. Ground yourself. Walk in the forest and just listen. Notice the rustling of leaves. The warmth of the sun and the freshness of rain. Embrace a tree. Feel the texture of moss and bark. Allow all of that beautiful wisdom you have absorbed from the heavens to be rooted down and manifested here on Earth. Otherwise, how will you ever see the fruits of your spiritual labour? They will stay as beautiful ideas and plans, formed in the upper chakras but never fully realised here on Earth.
