Let's dive in with learning about your Root chakra!
🔴 What does an underactive Root Chakra mean 🔴
The Root Chakra is located at the base of the spine & is associated with our physical identity & feeling of stability & grounding.
A blocked or underactive Root Chakra can manifest as physical pain or issues like fatigue, a general sluggishness, constipation & even discomfort in your bowels. Mentally & emotionally you may feel insecure, unstable & uneasy.
When the Root Chakra is balanced you will feel grounded, confident & ready to take on challenges.
A great mantra to repeat when your Root Chakra is feeling out of balance is ‘I am grounded, I am safe, I am in control’ - repeat this in the open air, grounding yourself with Mother Earth.
Our favourite crystals to work with for a balanced Root Chakra are Bloodstone, Black Tourmaline, Red Jasper, Smokey Quartz, Hematite, Amphibole, Tigers Eye & Obsidian. Hold or surround yourself with these crystals during meditation, journaling or while you sleep.
🔴 What is an overactive Root Chakra? 🔴
An overactive chakra means that your chakra is out of balance in a way where there is an excess of energy towards that chakra that is not aligned or vibrates at a non-harmonic frequency.
The cause of an overactive Root Chakra can often be because of overly materialistic values which can take place from childhood within our families & external factors that program our belief systems. This causes us to become disconnected from our original harmony with the earth & manifests into symptoms of depression, a feeling of heaviness in the body, a lack of focus & a feeling of dissatisfaction, while only focusing on material possessions.
So, how can you rebalance your Root Chakra?
- Conscious movement like yoga, dance & hiking
- Meditation & breathwork with crystals, affirmations & sound frequencies
- Use Root Chakra crystals to re-connect with earth - we recommend our Root chakra crystal set which contains Bloodstone, Black Tourmaline, Hematite, Tigers Eye & Black Obsidian.
Bringing this chakra back to harmony is essential for experiencing a stable yet consciously expanding life.
