One thing that I think is true for all of us, is that we never completely drop the roles that we develop as a child. I am talking about the masks we wear in order to effectively give and get love, recognize how to feel safe, develop a comfort zone and learn how to connect with people. The root chakra stuff that we have to keep coming back too!!!
Codependency is one of those clinical terms, like disassociative episodes or anxiety. Most of the time the original root can be found in family karma – being a child or grandchild of alcoholic. The truth is that the relationships you developed as a child where are often emotionally destructive, manipulative, narcissistic, toxic and full of power struggles so you developed a protective skin that kept you safe, which as an adult no longer serves you. Instead this “skin” is causing you to be unsuccessful, broke, self-destructive, people pleasing, triggered and unconsciously repeat hurtful patterns.
The second of the 7 chakras is known as Sacral Chakra, the Svadhishthana meaning “one’s own”. Svadhisthana is known for creativity and sexual and its energy is characterized by flow and flexibility. The function of the sacral chakra is directed by the principle of pleasure, it is located above the pubic bone and it encompasses the genital region. When we are being open and creative in our daily life we open the doors to this energy and by maintaining a healthy sexual life, honoring and respecting your body we can get in touch with our emotions and see if there are any feelings you’re holding onto. When we make a commitment to this process we begin to channel those emotions in a healthy way.
The first of the 7 chakras is known as the 1st or Root Chakra, the Muladhara (root support). Although each chakra serves an important purpose the root chakra is suggested to be the most important because it is the Chakra that connects us to our physical world and governs over our physical energies, giving us a sense of safety and security with other people and ourselves.
It is important to balance this chakra first before balancing the others, from an energetic stand-point, as it is widely believed that this is where we draw our life force energy from and supports every other chakra. Like anything you must have a good foundation in order to function properly.
