The Root Chakra connects us to the material world, transfers cosmic energies to the content and spiritual level, and transmits earthly power to our body. It allows us to connect with Mother Earth and sustain life. It gives us temporal stability and solid foundations to build our lives, forms the vital foundation of other chakras, and is the source of life force. For Inner Balance, it must be aligned with the 7th chakra.
Location: It is located between the crotch, where the excretory organs are located, at the bottom of the spine, and in the powerhouse, where the intestines and anus meet.
In the body: Spine, bones, teeth, breech, intestines, prostate gland, blood, and cell production
When the Root Chakra is balanced:
The joy of life, commitment to life-harmony, confidence, material, and spiritual strength, courage, joy
When the Root Chakra is balanced, we are connected to life, our joy and desire for life increase, and we feel safe. We live in harmony with the nature of life and the Earth. We want to take root in the world, start a family, expand, and grow. We feel financially wealthy and secure. We can adapt to change. Internally we think strong, joyful, and happy.
When the Root Chakra works out of balance:
Resentment, anger, aggression, forcing oneself to get what one wants, being rigid, being offended
When the Root Chakra is out of balance, we tend to be disconnected from life or with addictions. We develop the ambition to have everything we desire immediately to satisfy our personal needs. We neglect our health, nutrition, sleep patterns, and demand for rest. Likewise, we ignore the needs of others. Because the fear of losing is so intense, we do not feel safe and develop a distance from life, people, and events. We do not have the will to restrain certain behaviors and passions. We cannot give freely.
When the Root Chakra is underworked:
Physical fatigue, weakness, resistance, indecision, uncertainty, emotional pain
When the Root Chakra is underworked, we become physically weak, tired, and sluggish. We become materially and spiritually powerless and insensitive. We can obsess about the past. Even small events, let alone significant events, become a cause for concern. We grapple with the feeling of uncertainty. At the same time, we feel in the air as if we were not on this Earth, as if our feet were not on the ground. Let alone working; we would not be able to do daily routine work. We feel indecisive and unsuccessful and walk around with our shoulders down as if the world’s weight is on us. Life weighs more than happiness.
