36. Intention of Self – Root Chakra – Container of Life – Consciousness
The intention of self, represents the beginning point of life, when the unmanifested soul plants its intention to become manifest. The soul chooses its parents and decides where to plant its roots. The sacred circle or container of life is symbolic of the root chakra. Many ancient sages saw the circle as the place of ultimate creation, your soul sees it as pure potential. The root chakra is the place that represents the archetype of life. The eternal seed of life impregnates the eternal womb of life to give birth to all life.
The root chakra is an intentional place for creating a safe and nurturing place for the soul to manifest and become human. It’s only by becoming human that a soul can experience itself in all levels of consciousness. The human body allows the soul to explore and feel life in multiple dimensions.
Message: You have learned a great deal from the past, which has given you the ability to sense your soul’s intention. Work with your root chakra as you visualize a container filled with rich fertile soil. It is time to heal and make peace with the wounded stories of your ancest0rs. The container of life has the ability to transform these stories into life-giving energy that recharges your soul for the journey ahead. Be open to new beginnings as you reconnect with your soul’s purpose.
“Your inner purpose is to awaken. It is as simple as that. You share that purpose with every other person on the planet-because that is the purpose of humanity.” – Eckhart Tolle
The root chakra is located at the base of the spine and is connected to the muscular skeletal/elimination system. This is a place of groundedness, safety and trust within the physical world. It represents the archetype of the serpent or ouroboros that sheds it skin in an ongoing process of releasing knowledge to receive wisdom. This cycle forms the sacred circle or container of life. Its element is earth and its belief is rooted in the indigenous traditions of the world. This is the place where the soul sets its intention to become human. By embracing our humanness, we can begin the journey of reconnection to see the self and the soul as one.
