It is believed that the Root Chakra actually connects us with the spiritual energies of our ancestors, their challenges, and successes. These ancestral “memories” are carried in our own Root Chakras, coupled with our own experiences, chances are, everyone will ultimately be challenged with an imbalance at some point in their lives.
The difficult histories of war, famine, natural disasters, etc. of those who came before us are all “recorded” in the Root Chakra. These experiences are passed down from generation to generation and create unconscious patterns of behaviors …The karmas of our past and current lives lie in the energy of Root Chakra.
These energies may lay dormant, but when met with the right conditions, they may present themselves in many forms in the body—mental, spiritual, physical, emotional, and/or psychological. We are continually adding to the “pile” of “seeds” in the Root Chakra, all of which will eventually manifest themselves in mental, emotional, psychological, physical, or spiritual forms.
