I've been sitting here trying to think of something I am afraid of. I honestly can't. I'm not afraid of failing in a given endeavor, I'm not afraid of
dying, or of being wrong. I'm not afraid of being on my own, or putting myself in the limelight when necessary. In fact, the only fear I can think of
which I have is that of heights, I get vertigo when I'm looking down from a high place.
And about the only places I feel unwelcome are places where I know my opinions, values, and ideologies disagree with the dominant mindset: Republican
conventions, Christian youth-groups and Church functions, watching a chick-flick or things along those lines.
I guess if opening the Root Chakra means having no sense of self, no identity, and no personal opinions, values, or morals... then yeah, mine is
Concerning the Crown Chakra being under-developed, the website had this to say:
If it is under-active, you're not very aware of spirituality. You're probably quite rigid in your thinking.
Funny, actually, since I am part of a small collective of individuals who have worked hard for the past decade to plant a solid foundation for a
synthetic spiritual system which combines various cultural practices, world-wide mythology, and a safe-haven for those whose spiritual compass points
in directions opposite the mainstream religions.
I guess I really am not aware of spirituality... huh.
I'm going to have to go with a on this one. The test didn't properly recognize my weaknesses, or where I need improvement.

I decided to take a closer look at your results. Keep in mind that everything you answered was answered by you. The questions are given guidelines
to follow based on your own answers. The test is subjective and not in any way meant to be completely indicative of your overall personality or
Perhaps, you are not as spiritual as you think and you merely are actively trying to be more spiritual. Maybe you read and answered the questions
incorrectly or misinterpreted what they were really asking. I wasn't there to monitor
That being said based on the results I see, and I am far from an expert since I only recently took the test myself and decided to share my own
results, there is more that goes into the results and definitions of the results than merely looking at the bar graph and reading the descriptions to
pick out pertinent information.
It is interesting to note you chose the 2 items that you felt were wrong and you gave this whole process a thumbs down based on those under-active
numbers. You, also, chose to interpret them your own way.
Under-active does not mean closed and the percentages are not that far off the base point of +-0.
You said so yourself, that there are situations you would not necessarily feel welcomed...
You'd easily feel unwelcome
Not that you would be fearful of anything, just not comfortable in certain surroundings.
I think you could take the test again and this time try to not be so definitive one way or the other, there are many questions that if answered to the
extreme one way or the other can alter the results. I personally was not inclined to be so definite because there are times when I am not and I think
this is the case with most people.
The crown being under active does not mean you are not spiritual, it simply means in the results that you answered questions to the degree it felt you
were not active enough, now, when you took the test, it doesn't mean this is how you are all the time. That is why I say being definite affects the
I think these chant and hand exercises would do you some good.
Guess what chakra this applies to...
If this chakra is over-active, you tend to speak too much, usually to domineer and keep people at a distance. You're a bad listener if this is the
Some of it could be very accurate, but it is all subjective and not intended to be negative at all, which it seems you decided to take it as, it is
merely a guide to help recognize where anyone person may need to improve their energy.
