Root Chakra: Exploring Beliefs
These questions will help you gain greater clarity re: how your root chakra energy can be strengthened and balanced. Before answering the questions sit for a moment and sense how you feel regarding the issue rather than how you think about it. Very often our thoughts give us information about how we wish things were as opposed to what our deepest feelings may be. Observing how you feel or notingwhat shows up in your life can give you more information about unconscious beliefs than your everyday mind. It can also be helpful to note your inner dialogue when you notice someone else having what you say you desire for yourself.
