Ancestral genetic imprints lie in the Root Chakra.
When people live exclusively in the root chakra, they are overly attached to land, houses, tradition home and family, clans or tribal roots. They do not find an individuality of purpose outside the context of these. They often cannot see that we are all one people and one planet. If we open the root chakra we can be an anchor for spirit and manifest unity rather than separation. .
We can heal our root chakra through yoga classes and specifically some yoga poses like Sufi grind, crow pose, chair pose, front stretches, and back this up by eating well, walking barefoot on grass, meditating or praying. The archetype of the root chakra is the mother (even if we are male we have the feminine within us) and if we can heal our roots and learn that we can do more than our parents did, we have more scope and possibilities for better lives going forward.
We can become our own ‘good mothers’ whether male or female, we can nourish ourselves and keep grounded, then we are learning to develop qualities that will help us adapt, make changes, live creatively for these testing times we live through right now. .
In the next blog we will discuss the 2nd Chakra.
