Meaning and task
The Root Chakra is the connection with the physical body, the physical world, the energies of the earth and generally determines our relationship to the material level of life.
The main theme of the Root Chakra is safety and stability, and because it is the first and lowest chakra, it is of tremendous importance. The root chakra is the foundation and basis for our existence and evolution as a soul in one body. It is the bridge to the physical world, the soul’s admission to the experience of being incarnate.
Without a healed root chakra, no sustainable spiritual evolution is possible. Only an open root chakra enables us to face life fearlessly, to flow with the flow of life, and to truly enter into the experience through which our soul can grow. Only on this basis is authentic spirituality possible – often spirituality becomes an escape from a life that seems too threatening and unsafe, an escapist spirituality that always yearns for the light of the higher spheres, but never into physical experience to integrate. It is obvious that such fear-based spirituality can hardly lead to real transformation and often aggravates the situation rather than improves it.
The Root Chakra is associated with our primal instincts and our basic personal and physical needs of life and survival: our need for food safety, warmth, shelter and home, home, after being of the same kind and profession ). His strong connection to legs, feet and the skeletal system is, so to speak, the manifestation of his essential theme: fully embodied, stable and secure in life.
The root chakra can be greatly influenced by the experience of security and the relationship and connection with one’s own mother at the beginning of life – the first point of reference of the soul for the general experience of life in this world. So the themes of the root chakra are often related to the time of pregnancy, birth and baby-age. After birth, the young person first experiences himself as helpless and lost. In order to develop a sense of security, a good connection, first to the mother and later to the earth, is of existential importance. Often the first years of childhood determine how well the root chakra can develop.
The root chakra is associated with the sense of smell, which may seem odd at first glance. However, since the chakra develops mainly in baby-age, the close connection to the sense of smell quickly becomes clear, as this is the dominant sense at this time. The smell of the mother is the most important clue for the baby in an otherwise rather confusing experience.
A peculiarity of the basic chakra is that in it the kundalini energy can rest and be awakened. Only the full ascension of the Kundalini allows an irreversible transformation of consciousness and the permanent transition to an enlightened state.
Opened root chakra
A person with an open and root chakra lives from a sense of security, stability and basic trust. He feels safe and comfortable in his body and has lost his fear of life and physical experiences. He has developed an inner stability and security that is independent of changeable and uncertain external circumstances. He flows calmly with the ever-changing stream of life, because he has found in himself security and trust. He is fully embodied and grounded, has a deep, personal connection to the earth and its inhabitants. He is at home in his body on this planet, standing with “both legs in life” and radiating a life-affirming inner attitude. Material lack and existential fears are rather alien to him.
