How to Tell if Your Base Chakra Is Out of Balance

How to Tell if Your Base Chakra Is Out of Balance

When the base chakra is out of balance, energy doesn’t flow or moves very slowly, leading to a stagnation of life’s movement. You can feel stuck in a rut and find it difficult to release emotions that become trapped. Sometimes a loss, such as a death or broken relationship has occurred, and a failure to release the associated emotions leads to dysfunction in the energy hot spot.

Common symptoms include:

  • Chronic lower-back pain
  • Sciatica
  • Varicose veins
  • Water retention
  • Constipation or diarrhea
  • Rectal and anal problems
  • Fertility issues such as impotence
  • Immune disorders
  • Feelings of insecurity
  • Phobias
  • Depression, anxiety or panic attacks.

Healing the Base Chakra: The Benefits

Healing Benefits

Balancing the base chakra stimulates the flow of energy through the body’s whole energy system, which can have a beneficial effect on many chronic conditions throughout the body. It also helps to build up energy that is stored in the sacral chakra for when it is needed. By removing anxiety and stress, this healthy flow of energy allows positive changes to occur in your life. It facilitates the release of unwanted and unneeded emotions and thoughts that can block your path and prevent you from following your destiny.

Healing The Base Chakra

Healing the Base Chakra

 

The base chakra, also known as the first chakra, is located at the base of the spine. It is the survival center, supporting strength, determination, and the things that nurture us such as our family and friends. In certain traditions, such as Ayurveda and hatha yoga, it is regarded as the place where the resting kundalini is stored. It is the center through which we experience our connection to the earth and earth plane, while we are living this life. A healthy base chakra will keep you grounded and help you move forward in life.

Emotional/Mental Healing:  An unbalanced base chakra can prevent you from advancing in life. When it’s blocked, nothing seems to happen. The lack of balance prevents the release of grief and other restricting emotions that hold you back. Everyone needs time to grieve, but this should always be a process of release rather than something to hold on to. Death is about change–not just for the person who dies but also for the relatives and friends they leave behind. All change brings opportunity and a fresh start. Without releasing grief and holding onto feelings such as sorrow and guilt, any new projects you start may never quite work or come to fruition. This prevents abundance–not only material but abundance on a deep soul level, of sensitive feelings and happy emotions. You feel unfulfilled. Slowly this has an emotional effect. You start to feel as if nothing is working or worthwhile and no one is on your side. You become stressed, a myriad of apparently unrelated physical symptoms begin to appear, and low-level depression sets in. You can feel as if you have lost a connection but to what you often are not sure. The dysfunction of your base chakra prevents you from appreciating the nurturing things in life. You can feel distanced from family and friends and unsettled. As you start to feel alone, insecurity can set in, leading to anxiety and panic attacks. In extreme circumstance, addictions, phobias, and obsessions can develop.

Physical Healing:  When the base chakra is out of balance, common symptoms appear, such as chronic lower-back pain, varicose veins, sciatica, water retention, rectal and anal problems, constipation, diarrhea, some fertility issues such as impotence and immune disorder. The base chakra also affects the health of the groin, hips, pelvis, lower end of the digestive system, legs, knees, ankles and feet.

Spiritual Healing:  The base chakra connects you to the earth. In one sense this is rational, mental grounding, as in your link to the planet; keeping your feet on the ground than your head in the sky. In another way, it’s bringing all your spiritual knowledge and experience into your everyday life, living in the present moment and experiencing every second of your existence. Part of this process can involve development workshops and classes, but many people go to these have enlightening experience and then simply go back to their everyday lives, maybe tell their friends about the weekend and nothing. A healthy base chakra enables you to take the experiences and skills you have acquired and use them in your everyday life. This brings positive change in small manageable doses, leading to happiness.

Lifestyle:  A balanced base chakra can help you move forward in life, change career, accept opportunities and run with the ball when it falls in your hands. It promotes a healthy sense of security and confidence, allowing you to give and receive nurture, stand up for yourself when you need to, take advantage of all that life offers and succeed in whatever you do.

This Past Week

Sympathy Comments This past week has been one of the most difficult times in my life. I am referring to the elementary school shootings in Connecticut. I have never had to deal with anything like this in my life nor had I imagined I ever would. Lady Abyss was right, we do have family and friends of this site who were effected by this horrible act. Every day, we get a request for a spell or ritual to relief grief, help the ones left behind cope, help them in some way make sense out of this. There is no sense to this crime. We should not even focus on the individual that did this horrible act. I am sure my Goddess has already dealt with him, very swiftly and justice. Our focus now needs to be on the family and friends that lost children so suddenly. Their little lives cut so short. Their families and friends need our love, support and understanding now more than ever.

This matter will not conclude in just a few days, it will take weeks and even months. We ask during this time, you have patience with us as we try to assist those that need us. Lady Abyss went through the Amish shooting a few years back. She has some experience in helping those deal with grief. But for the Countess and myself, we don’t have any experience. However, we are willing to help in anyway we can. We are your family. We love you and you can come to us with anything.

Now the awful task is coming, the time we put our young ones in the ground and say goodbye. But don’t be sad, wipe the tears from your eyes, for your young child will be with you always. Walking beside you each day, in your memories, and in your heart. Even though, we can’t be there personally with you, I want you to know that all of us are there with you spirituality. Now is the time to turn to your Faith. Fall into the Goddess’ awaiting arms. Give Her all your sorrow and pain. Surround yourself in our Lady’s Love.

For Our Goddess Is A Great Lady, We seek Her out in times of need. She awaits us with open arms. She fills us with Her love and mercy. She is our Mother, She is our All.

O dearest Goddess, Mother of the green Earth,
blue waters and the silver Moon, please be with
me now in my time of need. Stress, confusion,
grief have taken hold of my life, and I feel the
weight of life’s burdens suffocating me. I am
truly afraid, but I know that you in all Your
loving kindness hear me now, and I find the heavy
weight getting easier to bear.

O dearest God, Father of the dark forests
shimmering mountains, grant me your spiritual
strength so that I can come through this time of
crisis and get back to some sort of normal life once again

Blessed Be.

Daily Feng Shui Tip for Dec. 16th – ‘National Chocolate Covered Anything Day’

Today’s ‘National Chocolate Covered Anything Day’ is really sweet. This is a also magically delicious day since chocolate was once called ‘the food of the gods.’ Cacao beans were used among Mesoamericans as money and were traded for everything from food to medicine. And there is more magical lore that says that chocolate foods in any form can increase our own ability to give and receive both money and love. So now it makes sense why this sweet stuff has been called the ‘food of the gods. A combination of money, chocolate and love sounds like a little slice of heaven to me!
