There are seven main chakras in your body, and this originated from Buddhism and Hinduism. These are the energy centers in your body that keep you strong and grounded. The word “chakra,” means “wheel” in Sanskrit and it is how your energy moves correctly.
The root chakra is the first chakra, and it goes from the bottom of your spine and ends at the tailbone. This works with your adrenal system and is the place where your fight or flight action works. This chakra is also part of your energy.
The root chakra works with your food, and it will start in the body and end in the root chakra and then go back to the earth. As you give your body the food it needs, it will help you to get rid of things such as stress and other problems. This chakra can also help you to trust yourself and the world around you more.
The root chakra is connected with what your body needs to survive such as food, safety, sleep, and movement.
Is Your Root Chakra Blocked?
You can tell that your root chakra is blocked by how you are feeling. If you don’t feel that you have worth or if you feel that you are unable to focus or center yourself, you might have an overactive root chakra.
When your root chakra is out of balance, you might find that you are hoarding things because you feel that you won’t ever have enough, and you might also not have good boundaries. This can cause you to feel depressed, to have an eating disorder, stress, the feelings of not being supported, fearful, or disconnected.
Balancing the Root Chakra
There are things that you can do to balance your root chakra such as grounding yourself. This is one way that you can make sure that your energy is flowing through all of the chakras correctly. When you ground yourself, you make your mind, body and soul get in alignment with each other.
Grounding also helps you to find your energy and to anchor yourself to where you need to be. This helps you to use your energy wisely and it can help you to let go of things that don’t serve you well.
Anything that aligns your mind, body and soul is a grounding thing and it can bring balance to your chakras. Here are some ways that you can ground your root chakra:
