Do you ever experience anxiety, depression, fears about money, or even lower back pain?

These may be symptoms of root chakra problems or imbalances.

Each of us has seven major chakras that begin at the base of the spine and extend up the spine through to the crown of the head. These areas store energy and send it out through the meridians (a path through life-energy or your “qi” flows)  to service the entire physical body.The seven chakra names map.

Chakras can wax and wane in their strength and vibrancy. They can even become blocked and stagnant like ponds that don’t have enough flow. Because of this, it’s not an exaggeration to say that complete health of body and mind begins and ends with the health of the chakras.

Probably the most common chakra to be in a weakened state is the First Chakra. Sometimes called the Root Chakra, or Muladhara in Sanskrit, the First Chakra is located at the very base of your spine. It deals with issues of physical survival, safety, and security and is blocked and weakened by fear and insecurity.

Here are 5 signs of a weak root chakra

  • Feelings of a general lack of physical energy and vitality.
  • Sense of wellbeing is highly dependent upon external circumstances. As everything is going smoothly and to your liking, you feel OK, but when circumstances aren’t to your liking, you feel insecure.

  • General lack of confidence in dealing with anything outside your comfort zone.

  • You believe that money creates security and therefore if a certain amount of money is attained, you guarantee your security.

  • You experience any of the following physical symptoms on a frequent or recurring basis: eating disorders, adrenal fatigue, foot and leg pains and injuries, rectal or colon problems, immune disorders or bone disorders.

If any of the symptoms above apply to you–you’re not alone! Many experience similar imbalances and the good news is that there are effective ways to deal with root chakra problems.

5 easy ways to strengthen your first chakra

1. Make a list of everything you tend to think of as providing your sense of security

Now, cross off any items on that list that could be taken away from you without your permission. What is remaining? Anything?

Now, make another list with the title, “Things That Can Never Be Taken From Me.” You might have to reflect a little more on this list – but it’s worth the time to do so. These are the true source of your security.

2. Reconnect your body to the earth in some physical way

Walk barefoot in the dirt or go outside and sit beneath a large tree, resting your back against the trunk. Reflect on all the ways you are supported.

3. Sing the word “grow”, holding out the “oh” sound as long as your breath allows

The word grow provides the proper vowel sound and has meaning related to the First Chakra. As you hold out the “oh” sound, bring your attention to the base of your spine and feel it vibrating and glowing red, sending life and health to your entire lower body.

4. Do the “Mudra Lock” breath

From any sitting position, inhale deeply into your lower belly. Now hold the breath in and tightly squeeze everything from your navel to your buttocks. Hold the squeeze for a few counts. Exhale, and with the breath held out, repeat the squeezing and holding for another few counts.

As you are squeezing, try to feel the energy rising up your spine and reaching the crown of your head.

5. Perform the “Seated Pelvic Rotation” yoga asana

5 Signs Your First Chakra Is WeakSit in a cross-legged position and grab your knees with your hands. Slowly rotate your hips and waist in a clockwise circle. Imagine that your navel is tracing as wide a circle around your seated center position as possible.

Use your arms as leverage (as shown by figures 2 and 3). Keep the movement slow and steady, breathing naturally but without trying to synchronize your breath with your movement. Breathe through your nose if you can.

Continue this clockwise movement for twenty to thirty seconds. Now reverse the direction and begin in a counter-clockwise direction, for another twenty to thirty seconds.

Why is it important to strengthen the root chakra?

Each of the seven major chakras deals with different aspects of the body, the mind, and the soul, although all seven chakras are interconnected and interdependent.

The First Chakra acts as a pump at the base of the chakra system that helps energy rise and flow. If this base pump is weak, work on the other chakras isn’t as effective. Therefore, understanding root chakra problems and how to bring your first chakra into balance is a crucial element of your whole body wellness.
