Root Chakra Basics

This Chakra Represents

Root Lesson

To feel safe and secure in the physical realm and manifest our basic animal needs.

Root Chakra is Responsible For

The Root Chakra is responsible for a sense of stability and security. The dichotomy of an unbalanced root chakra is similar to that of the "fight or flight" response. An underactive root chakra puts someone into "flight" mode where one would feel fear of being physically harmed. An overactive root chakra would push someone into "fight" mode and cause them to be overly aggressive. Although the "fight or flight" response is necessary in times where our survival is challenged, going into fight or flight when inappropriate can heavily damage the quality of your life.

Step 4. Mental Visualizations

The color of the root chakra is red. Visualize this color at the base of your spine, gently getting stronger and moving along your spine to your head. Doing this can mentally unclog your first chakra, paving the way for complete healing.


Step 5. Healing Stones

Red colored stones like garnet, carnelian, bloodstone and jasper are predominantly used in balancing the root chakra. Other stones that are known to have the same vibrational frequencies as the root chakra include hematite, jet, smoky quartz, and rhodochrosite. You can wear these gemstones in the form of jewelry to maximize their impact on your life.
