Balancing your Root Chakra

Improve your health and well-being balancing your root chakra energy

If you want to have optimum health, you need to take care of your energetic body. While modern medicine advances have improved our health enormously, it has made us forget our innate ability to self-heal.

Many diseases actually stem from a disconnection between mind, body and spirit, caused by energy blocks in our system. Prevention is always better than cure, and we can prevent many of our ailments by consciously practicing self-care with the chakra system. Taking care of your energy system can help you overcome health issues, have more energy, enjoy having peace of mind, align with your purpose, and have more self-confidence.

The chakra system is a network of channels consisting in different energy wheels. While there are over a hundred chakras, there are seven main energy centers that form the foundation of our energy bodies. These start from the base of the spine, and travel to the crown of the head. Each chakra relates to specific organs, as well as different emotional, psychological, and spiritual states.

The Root chakra is located at the base of the spine, below your tailbone. This is the first of the lower chakras known as root, sacral, and solar plexus.

The Root chakra is connected to the foundations of our lives and core issues, that include our basic needs, our sense of security, our home and family life, and how we feel in our bodies and on this earth.

A balanced Root chakra

When this chakra is balanced you feel an inner sense of security, that can manifest as clear thinking and good concentration, which allows you to set your goals, stablish priorities and take action in order to achieve these goals. It also supports a calm and steady energy that you can tap into to stay grounded while being flexible, courageous and resourceful during challenging times. A healthy root chakra also helps you manifest what you want in all areas of your life and to navigate the highs and lows in your path.

Root chakra imbalances

When the energy of this chakra is out of balance, it can affect us both emotionally and physically, and this can impact different aspects of our lives. When a chakra is unbalanced, it can be underactive or overactive.
