The root chakra is one of grounding and connects the body to the Earth, anchoring us in day to day life.
It’s colour is red and it is found at the very base of the spine.
It governs survival issues such as finance, food and physical security.
Overactivity May lead to feelings of unnecessarily heightened anxiety and fear for health, safety or financial security.
Underactivity may show as ‘drifting’ or daydreaming through life.
A healthy root chakra can be maintained through connection to nature and grounding meditations amongst other ‘earthy’ activities and foods.
Gemstones connected to the root chakra include Red Jasper, Tourmaline and Black Lava Rock.
