Healing the Root Chakra

The Root Chakra

The root chakra is located in the base of the pelvic floor pointing down, it’s considered the first chakra, and unlike all the other chakras positioned in the torso it doesn’t have a front and a back, only a single vortex. This chakra deals with our sense of personal security, fear and sexuality and it’s positioned in a sensitive part of the body where fear tension and constriction often forms in the thighs and pelvis due to future unforeseen or unresolved sources of anxiety.


This chakra is prone to becoming blocked very easily with different types of negative energy and when this happens we typically experience a burning sensation which is quite unpleasant. I liken this chakra at times to an air filter as when it functions properly it can purify bad energy from the body, but when it becomes blocked it can cause distressing symptoms.

I’ve covered a root chakra healing crisis already in quite a bit of detail in an earlier article, however to recap some of the more common reasons it can become blocked may include lusting after another person’s sexual energy, which can come with a serious complication of breaking psychic boundaries and causing a violation similar to sexual predatory behaviours that may cause mania, psychosis or an inner spiritual crisis.

Expressing an attitude or disposition of disproportionately too much fear in relation to something that may hold back the progress of your lifetime, it might include not wanting to learn to give a presentation, doing public speaking or any number of things. There are a wide range of things and reasons that can cause individual levels of heightened worry, anxiety and insecurity that sometimes correspond to too much fear energy. In a recent example, the teenage daughter of a mother was not wanting to go to University due being too afraid and this was likely to hold back her life, so this ended up being the initiation for a Kundalini awakening.

If you sustain a hot burn due to undue sexual attention due to a lustful stare or pervy sexual attitude you can lay on your back with knees bent and place a piece of black tourmaline can be placed at the point of the root chakra. If the root chakra is releasing a lot of dense, heavy or stagnant negative energy then a bath with several generous handfuls of salt can help to cleanse the energy and the heat from the water will assist in relaxing and releasing tension stress in the hamstrings. On several occasions I’ve used prayers to angelic beings, on one occasion a spirit guide placed my astral body in an environment with a cooling ice flow washed over by sea water and the energy of this dream cleansed the negative energy and alleviated my burning. On another occasion I felt what was a hand placed into my body at the root chakra and the bad energy was lifting out of me.

In addition to Kundalini energy during an awakening I’ve also found that tantric sexual energy or a type of strong plasma energy are strong enough to cleanse and break through a heavy blockage in the root chakra. This plasma is not the same as ignited gasses in the scientific sense, it’s a type of strong energy with a different quality than sexual energy or Kundalini. The later two types of energy are possible to access through psychic connections and meditations, however I couldn’t tell you precisely how, just that they are there and can be accessed by inwardly interacting with the right people, often these are healers.

If it is not appropriate to use the sexual energy of another person, because it’s wrongfully encouraging you to bond with the person, you can request during your meditation to use a spiritual serpent, this is a metaphysical tool used for consuming impurities within the chakra system and it also helps to pry apart contracted muscles producing a very blissful and soothing effect, but it is possible to become addicted to wanting to use one, some are used for external massage and some can be used for internal massage of a sensual type.


If you produce a lot of bad energy through doing harmful sexual things, you may very quickly attract the attention of certain types of entity. They often don’t look pleasant as they resemble things like squid, octopus as they have tentacles that are capable of being inserted into chakras to feed on the negative energy being produced. This will have the affect of also blocking the chakra and with it can come many symptoms associated with chronic fatigue, low mood, lower energy and at times this can come with seeing apparitions or hallucinations. Entities will naturally fall away once you have stopped producing dark energies and stopped doing things to attract them into your life. Examples can include using or consuming harmful sexual content on the Internet, sending out perverse sexual attention to other people or various kinds of negative psychic interactions such as sexual predatory behaviours that take place in mind only resulting in creating or attracting an entity.

There are certain skilled professional shamans or shamanic healers can be called upon to remove entities and normally it is the inner being or consciousness responsible for reconciling toxic actions and their corresponding karmic consequences.


In addition to lust for others sexual energy or lusting after the flesh of the physical body, the root chakra is susceptible to the sexual perversions, many of these are recognised in Christianity, however, it is also probable that there an even wider range of another paraphilia may also cause blockages here, but further study would need to be done. Violations that produce karma will often create an energetic blockage that can stem the flow of energy into and out of the body, they may cause fear contractions in the feet, legs, thighs and pelvis and cause both an ungrounding as well as spiritual, physical and emotional trauma as it affects a number of different levels to the body, mind, consciousness and eventually the soul.

In addition to these types of sin, you must be aware of your potential for seducing another person and being unable to resist as there are karmic complications here relating to the appropriateness of age and whether or not you’re coveting or violating someone else’s relationship partner, husband, wife or twin flame by attracting or seducing them, usually through the mind.

The common condition known as Piles I learned is linked to psychic cording at the root chakra level. I only discovered this after a tantra workshop, one cord I collected during the train journey down being sat opposite a young woman and another I seemed to pick up by looking at someone during the beginning of the workshop itself, they’re created through the use of mind and placing attention on someone and the result was being sore and miserable for much of the remainder of my time away from home, so be careful about cording and try to learn at least one ritual method for removing one.

Often it is a during a spiritual crisis where a person learns to resolve a negative karmic lesson and may resulting in clearing a very toxic negative energy from the body. Evidence for karma can be found by studying the face in almost everyone, as it leads to a transformation of physical appearance, discerning these changes is something I now refer to as ego balancing as karma and mind function together to produce negative defects that transform, alter and change the physical appearance in the face in relation to a degraded ego persona or impure mind, inner being and consciousness.

Masturbation can be used as a way of processing the energy or incidents responsible for sexual trauma and releasing this from the body often producing feelings of hurt, guilt, shame or anger at the same time depending on the context of whether it was sustained through another person or self caused. However if a person repeatedly re-offends it is possible for someone to develop a form of cancer, often the prostate in males and I am uncertain how it affects females, but there appears to be a wide range of physical conditions, illnesses or diseases to choose from that are connected to karma including cancer and sexually transmitted diseases such as chlamydia.

When in meditation and sat with the legs crossed or folded it is possible to begin to release tension stored in the legs and it will begin to concentrate around the base of the pelvic floor, muscle tension may begin to cause a happy or pleasant stirring effect here that appears to help reduce fear and anxiety levels before the tension is finally released resulting in muscles relaxing and releasing which can bring about greater comfort and reduce the risk of chronic physical health problems within the body due to excess tension.

Both physical massage and acupuncture can also be used to treat root chakra problems by focusing the mind on sources of trauma stored in the body before they are processed and released.


Information held and stored in the root chakra plays a crucial part in various anxiety disorders such as feeling too anxious or chronic anxiety. Sources of anxiety can include not keeping up with work, home and family expectations, being too fearful of social expectations, avoidance coping strategies and procrastination can all produces anxiety and fear energy that causes burning and fear contractions in the thighs. You must also be mindful of not deliberately causing other people to feel anxious by how you speak, communicate, behave and interact with them as this can feedback into yourself causing anxiety or at times their anxiety energy may be passed from them and into you.

You must be aware of your psychic cords, whom are you linked to, who may be a new connection and whom might be causing you anxiety or trauma due to not respecting sexual boundaries with others. For example, if you are not clear with your boundaries you may either sustain harm through when your partner flirts with someone too much or strongly or you may cause your partner harm in the same way, and, as well as causing consequences to yourself of a transgression nature. If you do not respect your spiritual expectations and obligations in a relationship, it can result in sexual dysfunctions such as erectile dysfunction and even the miscarriage of babies that can’t be born due to an unstable home or relationship environment.

To avoid receiving another anxiety energy, you must be mindful not to cause unnecessary anxiety in other people, sometimes it might be justified depending on the situation and sometimes another person’s natural insecurity may cause them to worry on their own, however sometimes an action or behaviour is seen as unjustified or disproportionate, often these interactions are something to be mindful of as they can create ego or make you feel anxious in turn.


Grounding can mean a few different things to different people, but within the context of the root chakra it most often means one of the following three examples:

  • To ground excess spiritual energy out of the body that is causing problems due to having too much subtle energy, this is not the same as energy that is released through digesting food and this energy can be released by visualising a shamanic root system that assists in pulling the energy down the legs and out of the bottom of the feet.
  • If you are holding onto too many negative energies these can also be released and grounded into the earth where this energy can be transmuted into a neutral state by forming an intention whilst visualising a similar root system.
  • When you need to physically ground, it often means that you’re excessively worrying and too afraid and the physical body begins to experience tension in the form of contracting muscles in the feet, lets, thighs and pelvis. Doing an ordinary activity that makes you feel safe is often one of the easiest ways to approach physical grounding, if this isn’t possible, then most people will often have at least one psychic cord to another person whom can provide psychic energy that counters the burning effect of anxious energy. Often it is enough to relax the pelvic muscles and thighs or think of a person whom makes you feel safe and this will temporarily alleviate the fear response, but it isn’t a permanent solution so either a situation or an issue will need to be resolved.
  • Root tornado, this is more rare, but it possible to activate root chakra energy that assists in alleviating the chronic discomfort of anxiety issues that appears not to have the same risks associated with accessing someone else’s sexual energy. Try placing a smooth red palm stone underneath your tailbone before you go to sleep of your favourite crystal.
  • There are a number of positions in yoga that can assist in both physical grounding and clearing and removing negative energies from the body.
  • Physically massaging the legs, thighs, pelvis and lower back can provide relief from fear tension and assist in removing certain types of trauma from the body.
  • Walking bare foot on the earth can assist in releasing tension and constriction from the legs and pelvis which has a grounding effect and if in a suitably natural environment like a garden or the countryside, these places offer a suitable place to access nature energies to ground or purify.

Chakra Myths

Eating foods that are red or wearing red clothing or similar in colour to the corresponding colour of the chakra in question you want to work on is not necessarily going to help you to balance that chakra. It’s nothing to do with light tor biology, it simply helps you place more of your mind and awareness on that particular chakra.

Crystals can also assist in forming clear mental intentions to work on a particular chakra, however despite crystals being able to store energies I do believe there are all sorts of exaggerated and false claims, untruths and disinformation about the abilities of crystals to actually heal. With that said I’ve come across two different techniques that use crystals to create and signify a strong deliberate intention or request for help of a particular kind, sometimes from spiritual beings who in turn can use crystals as tools for directing the flows of energy.

From what evidence I have seen, it’s apparent human beings can live in space for long periods of time, which conflicts somewhat with the idea that barefoot grounding is always necessary and to be without shoes or socks and walk on bare earth or soil frequently for optimal health is necessary, but it may feel nice for other reasons and helps stimulate blood flow. It’s also possible that human beings themselves maintain some sort of electromagnetic or spiritual connection to their planet, but I’m uncertain of this, however I have included it in my section on grounding.
