Root Chakra was now open, its contents spewing like a volcanic eruption directionless and intense. The Root Chakra seemed like a little shop of horrors, one by one bringing into my consciousness things I did not want to see. It appeared now that the contents of the Root Chakra had been unconsciously suppressed, each faculty layering up over time, strengthening its hold and thus making me its victim. Unknowingly I had been controlled like a puppet for years, dangled by a power so strong that if I had not awoken it could have easily controlled me for the rest of my life.
The Root Chakra is the boundary between animal consciousness and human consciousness. It is from this chakra that you see the transition from a sleep like state to an awakened state. Luckily for me I had been awoken by something and it was my time to embrace what I was being shown. One by one the qualities that I guess I had come to accept as normal were being shown to me in a very different light. I was being made to acknowledge them, delve deeper into there source, there triggers, there reasons and I was having to confront them head on. The physical symptoms of confronting a lot of the qualities that I had unconsciously come to rely on where exposing me to my pain-body. There were times of physical distress, nausea, headaches all of which were being caused by my mind bringing forth these traits. The traits for now I will keep personal to my own experience; but I will share with you the two sides. Some will be more stronger and some weaker. The key is to become conscious of them find balance in yourself and then to ensure they do not take you for a ride.
The traits are as follows each showing the dualistic principles that exist, one being the positive and the other negative.
As you can see these are the so called sins and virtues so often spoken of. They form the basis for a large majority of problems we see in society today. It is only when each one is brought to the light of awareness, understood, controlled and dissolved with consciousness can then the bursting Root chakra be brought back to rest. Control of each one will take time and patience and that is exactly what I was slowly learning to do. The key here was to know how to control each one, understand it before it tried to arise and banish it before it stuck its claws into me. It seems easy now when I look back especially as now I am the master of my mind; but while in the thick of it, it was a completely different story. Courage is what kept me going, I wanted to be free of how I was feeling and my guide was helping me keep faith. The journey was progressing; but somehow I knew there was going to be a light at the end of all this and that is what I kept myself fixated on.
