How to Unblock Your Root Chakra!
by Janice Smart on Feb 20, 2023
The root chakra is one of the seven chakras in the human body, located at the base of the spine. This powerful chakra is responsible for grounding and stability, and provides a strong foundation for our physical and emotional wellbeing.
When your root chakra is activated, you’ll feel more secure, confident and able to navigate life’s challenges with ease. But if your root chakra is blocked, you may feel anxious, insecure and disconnected. Read on as we share our guide to unblocking your root chakra below.
How to Know if Your Root Chakra is Blocked
When your root chakra is activated, your energy is focused on the present moment. You’re able to make decisions with clarity and ease, and have a strong sense of purpose and direction.
When your root chakra is blocked, you may experience a range of physical and emotional symptoms. These can include:
- Feeling anxious, insecure and restless
- Struggling to make decisions
- Feeling disconnected from your body
- Lacking a sense of purpose or direction in life
- Lower back pain and fatigue
If you feel as though your root chakra may be blocked, here are 5 remedies that may assist.
Connect with nature
Spending time in nature is a powerful way to ground yourself and connect with the energy of the earth. Take a walk barefoot, sit by the ocean, or simply spend time pottering outside in your garden. Focus on the sensations in your body and allow yourself to fully immerse in the experience.
Yoga is a wonderful way to balance and activate the root chakra. Focus on grounding poses such as Mountain Pose, Tree Pose, and Warrior Pose. As you practice, focus on the connection between your feet and the earth, and visualise energy flowing through your root chakra.
Crystals such as red jasper, garnet, and black tourmaline are ideal for balancing and activating the root chakra. Hold the crystal in your hand or place it at the base of your spine as you meditate. Visualise the energy of the crystal flowing through your body, helping to unblock and balance your root chakra.
