The Root Chakra: Money Issues and How To Balance It

4 Feb 2017

The Root Chakra or Muladhara and its relationship with money.

The first chakra is the tribal center of our body. According to Hindu tradition, it is called Muladhara, which in Sanskrit means “root” or “root support.” Buddhism recognizes this center as the point of connection with the earth. Through this chakra, located at the base of the spine, the roots of the Cabalistic Tree of Life flow, which in Hebrew is called Shekhinah. And according to Christian tradition, this center is represented symbolically by the sacrament of baptism.

The energy of our first chakra gives us stability, it helps us to feel that we are part of the vast universe of life but at the same time we are inextricably connected to its physical dimension. We can interpret this force as our link with the energy of the Earth itself. As energy beings, it is essential for our health that we maintain a strong and positive connection with the energy of this chakra. Our physical body produces electrical currents that connect us with the systems of the physical life of the earth through which we thrive.

When we do not recognize this connection or when we do not respect it, we experience the dark side of the first chakra. We lose stability, we find it difficult to perform in the physical world, we do not get things resolved as we wish, our creative efforts are blocked and frustrated. Every form of life requires a connection with the magnetic field of the earth. If we obstruct our vital connections, we prevent the flow of energy through our systems to develop a full and effective life, to perform acts of physical connection and creation.

Another aspect of the dark side of the first chakra is the inability to find a place on earth where we feel “at home.” People who do not have a conscious connection to the first chakra often find that they visit beautiful places, but none attract them enough to make them want to settle. They long to find a place to reside and a community to belong to; Although they end up in a certain place, always have the feeling that their connection to that place is incomplete.

Likewise, an imbalanced first chakra often produces the sensation that we lose contact with our physical world, that we have distanced ourselves from the most intimate part of our personal life.
