Root Center: Pressure & Motor Center
The Root Center is a pressure center, along with the Head Center. This is the center where we feel the adrenaline and the pressure to do. If you have this defined, then you are creating this pressure to do things. If you have this undefined/open, then you are receiving this pressure to do and it can be very uncomfortable.
Defined Root Center: If you have this center defined, then you don’t feel the pressure to do and get things done because you are creating this energy in you. You may be calm and thrive on adrenaline, being the risk-taker or spontaneous person. You won’t feel stress and pressure from anyone else to do things. If you’re in a work environment, deadlines won’t make you feel stressed, you’re probably the ones creating the deadlines and delegating tasks to others.
Undefined/Open Root Center: If you have this center undefined or open, then you feel the pressure and stress of needing to do things to take them off your to-do list. You feel pressured often and either freeze under pressure or are adrenaline junkies. If you’re in a workplace environment, then you are probably the person who gets all the tasks to do because the discomfort of the pressure makes you want to do things quickly to get that pressure off you. Remember, that pressure isn’t yours and you don’t have to do everything and you don’t have to do it now.
This pressure is a huge stress point in relationships and something that gets looked over a lot. If one partner has a defined Root and the other has an undefined/open Root, this can actually be a challenge in relationships because the undefined/open Root is often feeling the pressure to make decisions and to get things done when the other is putting out that energy, intentionally or not. However, if both understand their definition, they can take steps to be more intentional around each other.
