I was divinely inspired to do this series because I had a serious case of lower back pain. I have never had sciatica before but this pain shot from my bad to the bottom of my foot. Being that I’m in a community of healing facilitators of course many of them reminded me that lower back pain and sciatica is representation of an issue with my Root “Chakra”. I put that word in quotations for a reason and we’ll explore that reason during the local and online workshop. So of course I reflected on what the “definition” of Root Chakra is. For those of you who are not familiar, it primarily deals with feelings of security, safety, belonging, identity, and survival. There are other definitions but those are the main ones that come off the top of my head. So I had to reflect on my life because I’m also an advocate of PRACTICALITY. what is the LITERAL meaning of things and what is it that’s going on energetically that is affecting me spiritually? I had to remember the series of events that happened to where I suddenly moved to Charlotte, NC. I just literally uprooted myself from a place I’ve been in for 12 years to a new city to continue my journey in life. Yeah you damn right I’ve been having some fears, insecurity, flipping into survival mode, and truly wondering where do I belong lol. I don’t care how much spiritual training you’ve had in this world SOMETIMES that human shit throws it out the window.
It was important that I started communing with my body. My body is a temple so learning more about MY OWN SHRINES is not a joke. I am a young 35 year old woman and I can’t be having all these back issues honey. Through a combination of certain exercises I managed to DRASTICALLY improve my pain. More importantly the awareness of what my fears are rooted in became more clearer. My focus and ability to create more has also improved. Fear will have you stuck…LITERALLY. I know I was stuck in bed for a WHOLE WEEK…I got thangs TAHDO!!!
Many of you may be stuck in certain areas in life because of the fears you have yet to discover. If you have discovered them, then the focus on overcoming those fears are critical to your ability to MOVE and CREATE. One very important thing I’d like to add with this. When speaking on this root energy the concept of identity and belonging also came up. Some of the most important work to be done in dealing with this energy is also ancestral healing. The lineage you come from, your roots, can also play a major part of your life journey also…but that’s another post we’ll get to another time.
- What areas of life do you feel stuck in?
- Are you aware of your fears? If so are you able to articulate HOW they are holding you back?
- What does security look like to you?
- How often do you commune with yourself? How do you identify with self?
- Do you have a sense of belonging? Does the tribe you “belong” too reflect your worse fears or your greatest hopes?
We’ll explore more in relation to our sacred sexual selves during the workshop.
