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 and so incorporating more of the colour red into your own life is good for root chakra balance.

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. But what about when our root chakra is out of balance?

Root Chakra Imbalance Symptoms

Before we get into our root chakra healing affirmations, let’s look at some ways that we can spot an out of balance root chakra.

When we have a root chakra imbalance, either underactive or overactive, we may exhibit symptoms in the areas associated with the chakra.

Spotting these symptoms is the first step in acknowledging a root chakra imbalance and taking steps to restore balance and blockages.

Some examples of root chakra imbalance symptoms include:

  • A lack of focus
  • Co-dependency
  • Restlessless
  • Feeling abandoned
  • Anxiety
  • Fearfulness
  • Insecurity
  • Excessive negativity or cynicism

If you’ve been experiencing a collective of these signs then this might point to a root chakra imbalance in your own life.

However, it’s important to note that some of these symptoms may also be associated with other conditions and it’s best to consult with a holistic practitioner to determine if what you’re going through is better explained by something else first!
