Root Chakra Health Assessment

Taking the assessment

This is a simple self-assessment or ‘test’, that runs in your browser (nothing’s up­loaded to the server.) If you haven’t read the parent page yet, please do so before taking the assessment.

How to answer

There’s going to be blurred lines between past and present feelings and experience. That’s okay, just be consistent with how you decide to handle it and what takes precedence. With the broader period, it might be helpful to think about things as they once were, and not necessarily as they are right now. Conversely, the other tests are focused on more recent feelings.

The assessment uses a sliding scale. For each quality, choose a position that you feel applies to you. Honest answers are the correct ones, regardless of where they place on the scale. The default central choice is for neutral or close-to-neutral res­ponses. The left side rep­resents generally lacking in the quality and the right side, generally having the quality. The further from the centre you choose, the more strongly you feel about it.

Neutral choices can also be the result of feeling both positive and negative at the same time. That’s perfectly fine; there are clearly issues to resolve, but they reasonably balance out. It’s something you can make a note-to-self on. You’ll probably want to amend previous answers as you work through the assess­ment and gain greater context. The assessment is for you, by you and about you; it’s not a measurement of ideals and goals.

The assessment

The single greatest benefit is seeing how you’ve answered across the range of qualities. It’s subjective, but answer in terms of how you perceive yourself (and not how you think others see you.)

How do you feel when you apply the following words and qualities to yourself? There are thirty words to consider. Once you reach the end, press the ‘Assess’ button:

e.g. “Do I have…”


“How do I feel about my…”

About the results

The assessment returns a percentile and an overall grade, which you should note if you’re practising the affirm­ations. The grade is concerned with how you’ve answered, and not the score per se. This means it’s possible to score highly, but due to certain answers achieve a reduced grade. This is intended to provide a little bit more intelligence with the assess­ment. Grades run from the highest, 1, to lowest, 7.

Don’t worry if you’re handed a low percentage, this isn’t scientific, and I’ve structured the conclusions accord­ing to my general perceptions. Only you can determine relevance.

The assessment is meant for personal insight. Your interpret­ation of what a quality means isn’t going to be the same as the next person’s. You could think you’re awful at being a certain way and yet, the next person might think that’s top-level stuff. The converse is also true. The more time you spend considering your answer, the stronger the assess­ment results should be and, ultimately, the better the potential healing outcome.

Does this tell me how open my chakra is?

This assessment is con­cerned about overall chakra health, and isn’t in any way analogue to ‘how open your chakra’ is or isn’t. It’s entirely possible to have an array of dys­functional chakras that are wide open. It’s a complex subject area. There’s an online micro-industry to be found in various web­sites offering ‘tests’ for the advert­ising clicks and to funnel you into buying a service or product. Quite frankly, if there’s any mention of ‘open’ chakras outside of a meaningful dialogue, the site is serving you trash.

When folks talk about ‘open’ chakras what they likely mean is ‘active’ chakras because they’ve no concept of what ‘open’ really means. It’s not a binary thing. It will also relate to projected intent (via the chakra) driving better personal outcomes. They may not understand that, but they know being a certain way gets them results.

Here’s an example regard­ing players and faux-gurus: a strongly active sacral chakra and sexual selfish­ness can be harnessed to seduce rootless people, who are ‘overcome’ by the emotional urge, believing it originated within them­selves. That style of energy assault (or coercion) is common­place because a decent percentile of the population has some ability. It’s why untrained empath types get crushed 9 to 5.

If you think you’ve chakra-related dys­function, and/or want to strengthen your chakras, please work through the Lateral Meditation page.

It’s actually incredibly simple to determine if your chakras are open, which can be resolved by reading the following:

Q. How do I test if my chakras are open?

If you need to ‘test’ anything, then they’re abso­lutely not open.

Q. I still think my chakras are open, what should I do?

They’re not. If they were, you’d be experi­encing a whole new emo­tionally percept­ive reality and still wouldn’t need to ask this question.

Q. No, I really think they’re open though?

If sensitives around you are trembling in your presence and you’re not project­ing your energy (plus you’re not their boss, carrying an assault rifle with patriotic stick­ers, and/or foaming at the mouth,) then okay, you’ve got me. But why did you land on this webpage? Unless you know you’re open and have room for improve­ment, I refer you back to the first answer. Otherwise, con­gratu­lations you’re a very rare person, please keep grounded and be beautiful.
