Your root chakra is your first chakra, it is the base, the foundation of your mind, body, emotional and spiritual health connection. This has to do with trust, instinct, safety, grounding, family, boundaries, survival, fear, or fear of change and wealth. The physical parts of your body associated with this chakra are the coccyx, anus, large intestines, adrenal glans, back, legs, feet and bones. If you have issues concerning any of these body parts or emotional connections, your root chakra is blocked. Unblocking it will concern trying to unblock it by identifying what area’s of your emotional/physical health is blocked and letting go of those things that you are holding on to, in order to open the chakra. The color of this chakra is red. It has to do with family energy, belief systems foundation beliefs. They can be generational. Grounding yourself is essential. Being grounded will entail wearing the color red, eating red foods, picturing the color red at the base of your spine radiating out from your coccyx. Tapping is also used to balance your chi again. If your root chakra is blocked it can stop the energy from reaching the other chakra points and stop the flow of the chi. This will continue to create illness within your mind, body, emotional and mental health. The following link will help you to let go of those things that you no longer have control over and dealing with those things that you do.
I became a therapist in an attempt to understand my own childhood and what happened there and how it made me who I am, exhibiting the behaviors that were not always positive, very often self-destructive. I used Art Therapy to help me understand things in my past that were stopping me from making better decisions in my present day. I used Behavioral Science to help me understand underlying causal factors, roots to the present day behaviors that I was seeing in myself. Both help me to change those behaviors/thoughts that were causing me to make self-destructive decisions that were causing pain in life. I have been a therapist since 1985 and have an undergraduate degree Art and behavioral science (double major) from the University of Maine. My graduate work was done at Marywood university and I have a degree in Art Therapy. I have certificates in Forensic Interviewing and Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavior therapy. I have 22 out of 30 credits toward a degree in Trauma Therapy from Drexel University. I started out as a Community Support Worker, Program Manager/Clinical Supervisor, Family therapist and Outpatient therapist. View all posts by dtoomey2015
