We all have 7 chakras located in different areas of the body. Today we will be exploring the root chakra, where it is, what it means and how to keep it balanced.
Where Is The Root Chakra?
The root chakra is located at the base of the spine. It is associated with the colour red and links to the earth. When the energy in this chakra is balanced, you should feel grounded in yourself and in your environment. When working with the root chakra, think about how your feel about yourself and the people around you. When in your life do you feel calm and stable? If this chakra is out of balance, you may find yourself getting easily distracted, feeling tired and feeling stuck.
What Does The Root Chakra Mean?
The root chakra, also known as Muladhara, is responsible for your sense of stability and security. It reflects your foundation and is the energy centre of your body that wants you to remain stable. When the root chakra is at its best, you feel open and balanced. As it is located at the base of the spine, it is the chakra that connects you to the earth. However, there are many other chakras that are lower down than the root, but that's for another day!
How To Keep The Root Chakra Balanced
The root chakra may come out of balance due to everyday stresses of life, as well as fears and anxieties. If you're feeling disconnected and stuck, your chakra may need to be balanced. To fix this, focus on your energy at the base of your spine (the root chakra) and try meditating or yoga. Breathe deeply and direct your thoughts onto the physical and spiritual parts of your body.
