Going back to our “roots” is a theme I feel speaking loudly. We’ve been so focused on the wider perspective and being of service, that we’ve forgotten that all of this stems on how fortified our core “well of life” that supplies the resources to do so, is.
And to say it’s been off balance, depleted, and overlooked I feel is an understatement.
The consciousness of a tree is innately and automatically aware of its inner city circuitry that needs all of its parts and that all parts work together and optimally, if above and below are in balance.
And just as a tree grows expansively when its roots are strong and nourished from the Earth, it receives sunlight and water, and it unconditionally welcomes all of the elements that make it possible, so too do we when our roots are firmly grounded and we receive the rich, balanced nurturing and integrative love needed from the relationship synthesis we have with the nature of ourselves and all that surrounds us.
If you feel your energy has been leaking everywhere but to you, that you have poor boundaries (or no idea you even needed some healthy ones intact to discern with), have been living in scarcity consciousness, have fears of letting go, are struggling with emotional dysfunction, stress, anxiousness, insecurity, frustration, and restlessness, then your Root Chakra is in need of your love and integration.
A healthy Root Chakra would sustain you in vitality and support healthy growth from a balanced sense of self that is very self-empowered and self-aware. It is your grounding force for overall well being, determines how you function in life, and is the foundation for development of your individual expression of personality.
Our limiting beliefs from old rooted patterns of our early years and “past” lives affect how we are operating in the world and with others today.
Any unfinished business and unconsciously seeded hidden layers are still running the show now, whether you are aware of this or not.
This is why only concentrating in the upper Chakras and expanding our consciousness in these areas will only get us so far. And this is why we are needing to slow down and start listening to the messages within our very flesh and bones that are stored deeply in our DNA, as integrating these frequencies, and giving rise to their ancient wisdom, will assist us in fully shifting into new realities.
Right now, some of the frustration and challenge is because we are split with part of us in a new reality and parts of us still in the old. You can only remain split for so long, before something’s gotta give.
Every day the things and people that trigger us and ruffle our feathers, are the very ways and reminders that we show ourselves what we need to work on within, by their reflection of our own rejected or denied emotions and old patterned beliefs we thought were no longer there.
But in fact, we had simply focused energy elsewhere with a bombardment of well meaning positive thoughts that simply kept them at bay.
As we expand and nourish parts of us, let us not forget ALL of our parts, as the only way that we function most beneficially is as a WHOLE.
We can utilize the stronger, more developed, wiser parts of ourselves to access and support those that are in need. And when we welcome these parts into the dance with us, we will develop a new rhythm that will no longer be missing any beats.
Let us create an equal partnership and healthy relating family within ourselves, and not neglect any one of the children that need our loving attention.
Answers are revealed when we courageously journey back to the root of things. This calls for slowing down, taking care of your needs and well-being, letting go of the “have to’s”, being more still and listening to what you are truly feeling in every moment.
Truth will reveal itself, if you invite it.
