As I learn more and more about Chakras and how important they are, I uncover more things about myself that requires additional attention. One of these areas is the Root Chakra. Located at the base of our spine, it is the foundation and represents our connection to family and the core beliefs and traditions that we’re taught as children. For someone like me, who’s family is estranged and loves to keep secrets, it poses challenges and many risks. If this chakra isn’t addressed and allowed to flow as it’s meant to serious challenges with relationships and physical illnesses present themselves.
In a recent meditation, I came to realize that it’s not good enough to just heal and forgive those broken family relationships. I have to replace them with something else. Consider if our lives where like a house: the basement would represent our childhood and family. I have cleaned out and decluttered everything and everyone that no longer serves me to my highest good or purpose – no more unhealthy relationships with family members who make me feel negative or bring nothing but negativity to my life and no more stored and boxed hurt emotions. I did a great job of removing everything from the basement, or the foundation, of my life when it comes to my family. What I didn’t realize until recently is that I just dusted it all out, closed the windows, shut the door, turned out the lights and never went back down there. I left a dingy, dark hole!
I have to bring in light and fresh air. I need to replace the old with the new.
I started by visualizing opening the windows to let the light and spring breeze into the space. I brought in white candles and invited bright, white light into the space. As it becomes a more welcoming space, I’ll find new people to bring into the space and create a new sense of family – one that is positive and healthy and a solid foundation for my life.
