I have spoken about the importance of grounding before, but I wanted to give more insight into the first chakra to explain why that is so necessary.
The first chakra, which is red, is located at the base of the spine and deals with issues related to safety, security, and belonging. Some people have never fully anchored into this chakra from stored trauma in the body and not wanting to be fully present. The problem is, in order to really manifest what you want in your reality, you need to be grounded in. If all of your ideas and desires are just floating around, they can’t be actualized. They need to be anchored to the earth, which means you need to be anchored into your body.
Same with issues around safety and security. In order to truly feel safe, you need to be in your body, otherwise anxiety can arise. If you are ever feeling especially anxious, put your attention on your first chakra.
An imbalanced first chakra brings with it issues relating to lower back pain, autoimmune diseases, constipation, chronic fatigue, being scattered, depressed, and living in financial struggle.
A very simple way to begin to activate and open up this chakra, is to put your attention on it every day and see beautiful red light filling all the layers of that chakra. Don’t get hung up on seeing the different layers or worried about whether they’re filled or not, just put your attention on your base of spine, and breathe in red light. Lazaris says each chakra has 12 layers, so you could count to 12, very slowly, allowing that red to come in and fill and activate that chakra.
When you first start doing this, you may not feel like anything is there. You may feel like the energy is constricted, or just empty. Simply notice that and continue to focus on bringing in red light. If you don’t visualize colors well, do not stress, simply put your attention on that area. Do this for a few moments and then fill that chakra with white light.
Throughout your day, bring your attention back to the base of your spine. Notice if you are present or floating. Are you in the moment or are you checking out? Are you truly sitting in your reality or are you off in lala land? Just be aware and allow yourself to be willing to anchor in so that that energy center can open more and more, helping you to manifest a reality of incredible safety, security, and financial abundance.
