The root chakra has to be one of my favorites. When it comes to clearing energy during a reiki session, this is the chakra that holds all of the secrets, and usually where most people carry all of their life trauma. The Root Chakra is located towards the bottom of your spine and can sometimes be called the Base Chakra. It is your home. Your sacred space. The foundation for your feelings of safety, security, and grounding.
This chakra is represented by the color red. When underutilized, you can become fearful, and when overworked you can tip into paranoia.
An easy way to ground your energy is to visualize literal roots growing from the bottom of your feet (or spine if you’re sitting) deep into the Earth. Stretching through the layers of soil, rock, and sediment until it reaches a brilliant core of light at the center of the planet. From there, imagine it bringing all of the love and nurturing energy of Mama Gaia, her vitality and strength, back through the roots and into your being.
When the Root Chakra is out of whack, you may have feelings of anxiety, depression, and a lack of motivation. You may also struggle with weight issues.
When your Root Chakra is balanced, you are physically fit, energetic, stable, and grounded.
Ways to heal this chakra: Reiki Energy Healing, eating red foods or wearing the color red. Wearing crystals like Bloodstone, Jasper, and Garnet. Also connecting with nature can help to get the Root Chakra back aligned.
