Your first chakra contains information about being secure, stable, protected, and grounded.
Located against your spine at the tailbone, this is also the chakra you create grounding from. Having permission to ground yourself gives you the freedom to be who you are, live how you want to live, have health on every level of being, and feel like you belong, no matter where on earth you are.
This information is extremely important, because in order to create your life, you need to feel secure and safe enough to do so. It’s hard to grow and change if you are constantly feeling unsafe – you’ll have a difficult time taking chances, trying new things, and having your other abilities on and working for you.
It is the first chakra part of you that makes it possible for you to be safe enough to turn on your psychic abilities as well. It’s easier to be psychic and turn on those sensitive higher parts of yourself if your body feels safe and comfortable. If you don’t have access to your own 1st chakra, your abilities may be difficult for you to have for your own use. You might find it hard to control them – for example, many people are very psychic but are frightened of being so because it feels out of control to them. If you can ground yourself, it’s easier to let go of that fear and enjoy your own energy.
When the information in your first chakra is yours, it’s much easier to create your life your way. If you’ve got information in your first chakra that doesn’t belong to you, you may find it difficult and frustrating to manifest what you want, or to feel good in your own body. You might pick up other people’s fears, unconsciousness, or pain and without meaning to, carry it around in your first chakra. Grounding can help you to release those energies that aren’t yours, making it easier to have more of what is.
Your first chakra helps you to create the grounding in your life: shelter, food, career/job, finances, and so on. If you’ve had difficulty creating comfortably on this level, it’s not because your first chakra is flawed. You may be holding onto some energies that have gotten in the way of you accessing your own abilities. By learning more about your own energy, you can begin to release those energies that aren’t yours, and start to have your first chakra working well for you.
