The root chakra, aka Muladhara, is the body’s most primal energy center. It is located at the base of our spine, or groin area. Being associated with the color red, the root chakra is the energy associated with instinct, survival, and safety. For those that experience trauma , fears, instability and psychological problems, the Root Chakra becomes blocked and suppresses the energy flow. There are many signs & symptoms of a blocked Root Chakra.
Here are a few signs that the root chakra is out of balance: ~You worry obsessively about money, feeling like you do not have enough. ~Trust issues, meaning that you have difficulty trusting others. ~The feeling of never having enough. ~Always needing to be in control ~Fear of going homeless ~A hoarder ~Problems in relationships, mostly family ~A feeling of dizziness, confusion, spacey or anxious ~Binge eating, or not eating at all ~Afraid to be true to yourself around others ~Over dramatic in what you may see as a threat ~A feeling of disconnection of others and nature
When your root chakra is in balance, you will feel an energy of calmness and being grounded. Your fears of money or not having enough will end and you will trust the Universe of it's divine power to provide for you what you need at the moment. Your trust towards others will increase ,and you will have a deeper trust in yourself. This will bring you into more connection with others and your surroundings. The key to the root chakra being in balance is that you will notice an inner peace, rather than trying to take control, you will embrace the natural flow of everyday life.
