As we move along our spiritual path, focus must also be given to our base or root chakra health.


The root or base chakra relates to the connection to our father.  Any kind of abuse from the father or another authority figure can set up a trauma that can reverberate throughout our lives.  Similarly, if the father had experienced abuse as a child we unknowingly can feel the pain, especially when feeling close to the father.

Birth trauma can similarly create ‘shock waves’ throughout one’s life, to the extent of post-traumatic stress.

What is very often, overlooked, is the absence of a positive father figure.  Either an abandonment or rejection situation, the father working long hours, or the father being either mentally or emotionally absent.

An imbalance in the root chakra can lead to fear and insecurity.

Fear which started as a birth or childhood trauma, creating a fright, or freeze ( due to terror) response, which affects the adrenals, releasing cortisol into the body and, subsequently creating various physical challenges to the body.  The response can also affect the thyroid gland. The end result is hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid), or in severe cases Hashimoto’s Disease.

Without the presence of a strong fatherly protector (the mother relates to being nurtured) is to feel unsafe and unprotected, not finding a ‘home on earth’, and being ‘unable to put down roots’, and feeling disconnected from the earth.

The physical areas that can be affected are the legs and pelvis, reproductive organs, and bladder, Structularly it can result in being flat-footed, lack of grace in the legs, and an inflexible pelvis.


There is also a connection with the Crown Chakra.

When there has been early trauma and any kind of disconnection there is a tendency to escape to the crown chakra, where there is a big disconnection, not just from the earth, but also the infinite, leaving one feeling spacy and not grounded.

About My Work & How I Could Help You

Soul Whisperer Tony MillsMy work as a Soul Whisperer is to help you to communicate with your soul’s needs and desires. Your current health challenges are a result of a build-up of unresolved negative emotions and pre-programming, often from your childhood. Your soul expresses these unresolved negative emotions first through your thoughts.

Should you fail to listen to the messages that are crying out to be heard, these messages become stronger and harder for you to ignore. They then become manifestations of pain, discomfort, or ill health. Your soul must find a way to get you to take action.

Your soul probably brought you to my website today!

After more than 30 years as a therapist, I have devised my own unique and efficient ways of assisting my clients back into alignment. This means that if you chose to work with me, by applying dowsing techniques, we will look for the emotional or energetic root cause of your health or well-being challenge. Then together, using my own devised healing methods, we will work on clearing the blockages within your system and bringing back harmony.

You can learn more about my journey to the work I do today on my About Page.

My wife, Annie, is very intuitive and by listening to her body, she was guided to eat a plant-based, wholefood diet, avoiding gluten, dairy, eggs, cheese, and processed foods. This also resonated with me, and we also stopped drinking alcohol.  We both experience great health as a result.

Currently, we follow the guidance of Medical Medium where you will also find lots of free advice and knowledge. You will learn things such as the need for protein is a marketing lie, and that many vegan body-builders suffer arthritic conditions as a result of consuming a lot of protein.

Medical Disclaimer: While shamanic practices/spiritual healing is not a replacement for conventional medicine, it is often used successfully as a compliment. Holistic therapy of this nature has been shown to help many people, whereas other methods have failed. Always consult a physician about any physical or mental problems you may have.
