What is the Root Chakra?

Updated: Jan 17, 2019

This month I will be discussing your first energy center known as the Root Chakra.

The Root Chakra is located in the base of your spine. It resonates with the color Red, and the element of Earth .

When you think of Earth; What do you think? What do you feel? What do you see?  

Do you envision something solid, stable, nurturing, warmth?

If so, that is exactly the focus of the Root Chakra. It is where you hold the thoughts and feelings of your foundations, and basic needs of water, food, and shelter.

When situations happen in your live that impact our finances, homes, our basic needs, or even when relationships become rocky;  Our reactions to these situations impact our Root Chakra. If they happen often enough, or for long periods of time they create FEARS. Fears such as feeling like you will never have enough, or don't have enough, insecurity, feeling unsafe, abandonment, etc.  These fears in turn, create blockages in our chakra, preventing it from spinning and shining its brilliant red color.

What does this mean to you and your body?

Emotionally, having your Root Chakra blocked might have you feel constantly anxious, threatened, uncertain about everything in your life, always think of the worst happening in any scenario. On the reverse, you might be greedy, or overly indulge.  Physically, blockages to the Root Chakra will cause issues in your bones, teeth, legs, teeth, lower back, colon, and intestines.

How do we clear blockages in the Root Chakra?

Here are a few things you can do to help clear you Root Chakra.

Try Yoga, certain poses will help bring energy to the chakra and help clear it.  A Few Examples are the Warrior II, bridge, and mountain.  Additional poses can be found in the following article on balancing your Root Chakra.

Wear Crystals, or place them under your pillow, or when meditating. Crystals carry energy that can help balance and clear your chakras. For Root Chakrathe best crystals to use are: Red Jasper, Smokey Quartz, and Hematite among others. 

Wear the color red, wear that red dress or shirt. Colored clothing also carry with it it's frequency and energy which can helps you vibrate and unblock that Root Chakra. 

Reiki Energy Healing Sessions help fill the chakra with life force energy releasing blockages and allow the chakra to spin and shine. You can book a private 1 on 1 session or  participate in a Reiki Healing Circle like the one being offered this month... FEARLESS...
