Chakra is a Sanskrit word which means vortex or wheel. There are seven major chakra (energy) centers in the human body. These energy centers regulate the flow of energy in our system based on the choices we make. How well the chakra centers function depends on how well our choices are in alignment with our true nature and with the overall harmonic flows of the universe. In other words, the chakra centers reflect the way we view and experience the world around us. Our choices about how we feel about our life experiences are registered in these centers. This may then inhibit or enhance our experience of life based on how we view our life.
Very frequently, during my client conversations, I notice how much fear is embedded into their systems. Fear can create dysfunctional spaces in the 1st (root) chakra. You can learn to express yourself via worries and fears through your 1st chakra if that was modeled for you by the immediate caretakers while growing up. 1st chakra chakra is a template for our ability to express ourselves safely in our social network, as well as our capacity to feel we belong in the world that we live in. If your caretakers paid attention to you when you were fearful and worrisome, you would then learn to use fear as your core driver to accomplish things as well as to establish social networks via fearful relationships. These fearful relationships could be established with people, organizations, companies, corporations, etc. It impacts how to construct your world around you to create safety for you through your finances, income generation processes, your social expression, etc. anything that impacts your belonging at large. If this is a pattern for you, you may scan your relationships to see if they are feeding fear in some ways.
Now, let us have a look at how to get off fear or worry train and to create intentional safe spaces to live in for you. This may be a challenging shift. It often takes a warrior-like awareness, stamina, as well as gentleness, care, and compassion towards self. And it may take time…Obviously, coaching conversations are often helpful for establishing a new behavior.
I also have an upcoming guided meditation session that you might find helpful as you shift your operating system from fear into joy. You may find further information about that here.
May you feel the courage to fill your heart with joy and ease as you reconstruct your structure of safety and belonging in the world around you…
