When our root chakra becomes unbalanced it manifests by us experiencing survival issues or the inability to make money in order to provide for our basic survival, other manifestations are; over-reacting to situations, lack of self-worth, greed, anger, violence, fear, self-centeredness, being restless, anxious, disorganized, feeling disconnected from the body with an inability to relax or to stay grounded, an inability to be in the present moment – always living from the past or in the future.
If this chakra is not developed fully our foundation will be shaky and our roots will not be strong enough to provide continued support for us to reach our highest growth potential. When this happens, we tend to protect ourselves by withdrawing from fully grounding into our root chakra so that we can avoid experiencing our pain.
Although this may initially help us move through emotionally traumatic events in our lives - if we do not eventually re-open the root chakra, allowing the life force energies from the Earth and our Spirit to enter our system, we will become worn-out leading to an energetic imbalance, illness and disease.”
All of our chakras affect each other which means that when one is happy and healthy, the others begin to harmonize with each other, keeping our body in high vibrational health and wellbeing.
However, when one of our chakras becomes unbalanced, it affects all of the others too which can cause illness and disease.
When the chakras stay imbalanced for lengthy periods of time, they can build up and become energy blockages that eventually manifest physically as disease and other bodily symptoms.
The functioning of each chakra is a reflection of the decisions we make concerning how we choose to respond to conditions in our life. We open and close our chakras when we decide what to think and feel, and also through which perceptual filter we choose to embrace in order to experience the world around us.
