When our root chakra is blocked it can cause a lot of turbulent feelings - since it is what’s known as our “base chakra”, when unbalanced it can put our entire system off.
If you suffer from feelings like fear, anxiety, doubt and insecurity then your root chakra may need a little bit of TLC. Try the root chakra affirmations in this post to help clear any blockages in the first chakra and get grounded in your life!
Root Chakra Meaning and Location
The root chakra is the first of the seven primary chakras and lies at the base of the spine around the perineum. It is associated with the colour red.
The root chakra is associated with basic needs, a sense of safety and security, groundedness and a stable foundation. When in balance we feel safe or “at home” in the world and our basic needs feel satisfied.
