Root Chakra

Lets talk about the Root Chakra! You can think of this energy center as the anchor to the physical world. Just as the roots on the lush, magical trees are anchored into Mama Earth, you to can “root” yourself in her loving arms. I’m going to give you a little trick in a bit about how to use this anchoring process too, so “stick” around! No pun intended!!!

So why does the root chakra even matter? I want you to think for a moment about hmm… that massive oak tree. What if… for some reason that big, bold tree only had one.. yes, ONE root trying to hold itself up. That one root underneath the ground… stressed the hell out from the trees weight. Add onto that, a storm comes through, the wind picks up and begins to push against the tree. Blowing and blowing, unloading all its force upon that tree. The tree is trying its best to stand tall, to stand against the storm… but eventually its going to topple over. It gave its best, but lacked the security of the roots. Another example… what if someone build a house and the foundation was missing some bricks or completely off level? What do you think is going to happen when the storm comes through. Sure, it may hold for a bit, but eventually its going to give out and lose its balance. Also, think of a mountain sitting upon the solid ground…strong, stable, and unmovable. You are that tree… you are that house… you are that mountain. You need a solid foundation to better stand through the storms life has a tendency of stirring up. I’m sure you’ve guessed by now that the root energy center is your foundation for your other energy centers!

The Root Chakra is your security, safety, stability, your foundation of life itself. When your Root Chakra is just right, balanced, and open you will feel more grounded in your physical identity. You feel super safe, secure, and trusting in the universe. You know that your basic needs are taken care of and better suited with physical, mental, and emotional health. If you begin to feel insecure, unsafe, excessive negativity, anxiety, and depression creep in then your root may be blocked or even closed. This may even cause sleepless nights where your up stressing about finances, health, judgement from others, and other basic needs. During the day you may feel as though you just can’t “get it together!” You know… zombie like! These fears may even create physical symptoms in the body like skeletal problems because you don’t feel supported. “Ohhh, my back!” You may also see it manifest in the physical as eating disorders or digestive issues. So eating like your preggo or maybe even not having an appetite at all.

How do we open and balance this energy center?

Let’s talk about my favorite first: Toning

The sound for the Root Chakra is “UUHHHHH”. It’s very simple to use this technique. Get comfy, breath in deeply, and when you exhale simply let out that sound, bonus points if you sing it in a C key! Also you can listen to music in key C to work with the root chakra. I’m going to be making a playlist on my YouTube channel of some songs in C as well as my own Root activation songs. You can find that on Journey Intuit.

Your Root craves connection with the Mama Earth, so next on the list is just that.. get connected or as some say “grounded”. Sink your toes into the earth, bare feet to ground. Feel the textures between your toes. Breath in the fresh air and gaze upon the beauty of the beloved Earth. You can also get your hands dirty! Plant them babies right into that soil or plant something! Simply put, take a moment to get out into nature and get connected, you will immediately feel the effects on your Root Chakra!

My next quick fix, is wearing the color red… or even Earthy tones such as greens and browns. You can intake some red foods and earthy foods too. Make a Root Chakra stew with some root-y veggies, YUM! You can also use essential oils like my favorite cedarwood. As well as crystals like red carnelian, red jasper, and hematite… shoot, take a bath with em!

Use affirmations like “ I AM home in my own body, I am secure, I release all fears and doubts, I am safe” or a mantra like “ I AM that I AM”. Your body listens!

Remember earlier I said I had a little tip on how to use this anchoring process. Let’s talk about it!

It’s all about visualization. Get comfy, take some deep breaths, clear your mind, and tune into your body: specifically the area of the Root energy center. If you can, take a moment to see/sense what your root chakra looks like. Is is vibrant? Is it dark or maybe a faded red? Does it move? It is at the area we talked about earlier? Whatever the case may be for you, take some time to adjust it or if you don’t see it at all imagine a red ball of light. Whether you need to clean it, or create it… use this technique to make it vibrate. When your satisfied with how that feels to you, allow it start spinning…faster and faster! Next I want you to imagine this energy moving down your legs and into your feet. All the way to your toes. When this energy moves out of the toes, imagine that roots are forming, entwining, and growing. Allow the roots to move all the way into the earth. Imagine it piercing through the soil. Go ahead and move those roots all the way to the center of the earth.

If you’d like to go a step further… maybe haven’t been feeling very secure latley. Use the Energy Recycle Bin technique to discard anything inside of you that just isn’t serving you. Fear, anger, sadness, insecurity… let those emotions run down your roots and let Mama Earth recycle those for you. “What do you need?”, she whispers. Confidence, joy, strength? Bring those emotions back up through those roots and into your body. How are you feeling?

I hope this helps you to better understand the importance of your Root Energy Center and that these tips are useful to you! Along with the playlist specifically for the root chakra, I think I’ll make a little meditation for the root as well!
