Chakras 101 Series (Part 1- ROOT CHAKRA)

What are chakras and how will understanding them improve your life?

In this series, we are exploring the significance and power of the 7 major chakras, one at a time.

Everyone has chakras. Chakras represent different energy centers throughout our body. Each chakra are associated with specific colors and energies. Though there are separate chakras, all chakras work together to create a balance of energies that affect your everyday life on a mental, physical, and energetic level (your mind, body, and spirit).

Gaining an understanding of each chakra helps you to become attuned with yourself. This strengthens your inner voice and allows you to be able to recognize whether you are emotionally on or off track so that you can rebalance yourself and make adjustments as needed.

Spirituality and astrology are interrelated. This series will detail how they connect so that you can more easily understand and incorporate these elements into your life and experience the positive changes it can bring!

In part 1, we are diving into the 1st chakra called the ROOT CHAKRA!

This is the first of the seven chakras and is located at the base of your spine.

This chakra is represented by the color RED and is connected to the planet MARS.

Your ROOT CHAKRA is your BASE.

This chakra is connected to all things that represent your FOUNDATION such as: your well-being, physical health, belonging, security, and survival—how you feel supported in the world, and if your basic needs are being met including: shelter, food, sleep, and clothing.

Your ROOT chakra needs to be nourished if you experience:

  • insomnia
  • overeating
  • low energy
  • workaholism
  • insecurity
  • addictions
  • getting sick often
  • anxiety
  • obsession with routines/overly strict boundaries
  • obsession with money
  • obsession with dieting
  • disorganization
  • financial issues
  • poor sense of self
  • lack of boundaries
  • fickle behavior
  • hoarding

Your ROOT chakra is kept balanced by:

  • Carrying stones such as: Black Tourmaline and Black Onyx
  • Grounding yourself, such as being barefoot, outdoors in nature
  • Getting adequate rest
  • Physical exercise
  • Massage
  • Eating protein and root vegetables (e.g. sweet potatoes, ginger, garlic, turnips, onions)
  • Chanting the seed sound to activate this chakra: “LANG” (rhymes with song)
