Maintaining the health of our first chakra depends upon addressing our personal family issues at its core. We have been introduced by our families, our cultures into this physical life and therefore have inherited a combination of truths and fictions. The truths is that each action, each belief has a direct consequence to the health of our bodies and our spiritual energies. Getting to the root of your problems and evaluating your core beliefs is a spiritual and biological necessity. If you feel out of balance, lacking in confidence, a sense of disconnection, lack of abundance, poverty consciousness, being fearful, anxiety, insecurity, trust issues, vulnerable, lack of boundaries, survival issues, no courage, restlessness and problem being in present time. You could definitely benefit from a cleansing of your Root chakra.
