For survivors of domestic violence it is very important that you work on your root chakra as this is all about safety and security. As i am a Reiki Master, a light worker and a healer also a domestic violence survivor so i understand how important it is to work on this. So i would like to educate you and give some tips on what to do to work on this so you can do better. One of the first steps that need to take place for survivors of domestic violence is to find safety.
This chakra is all about safety and security. This root chakra actually holds all the other chakras up and supports them. The root chakra holds the foundation of our life, being the colour red, associated with touch and our senses and smells, with the musical note c, our individuality and grounding of our body. When we are grounded into mother earth from our feet chakras ( with our shoes off feel the earth) below your feet. This chakra holds up our physical existence connects us to our family, friends and communities. It is found in our coccyx joint in the body. It is the seat of our will to live and holds up our vitality. This chakra nourishes and connects to our adrenals glands, the kidneys and our spine and our legs. This chakra also connects to our etheric body which is the blueprint of our physical body holding all of our cells and organs our etheric body together. It can be a blue colour or sometimes grey.
