Your Guide to the Root Chakra

Root Chakra Stack


What is it?

It is the first of the 7 chakras, our home, and where we feel the most safe. While all of the other chakras work together to bring balance and well-being to our lives, the root chakra is what holds us to our core and to mother earth. The root chakra represents our most basic needs in life. 


What is its function?

It sits at the base of your spine, right where your tailbone roots into the rest of your body. Also known as Muladhara. The word Muladhara breaks down into two Sanskrit words: Mula meaning “root” and Adhara, which means “support” or “base.” 

It is our foundation.  It represents how we are grounded and how we feel about the world. Having a strong root chakra means we are supported and stable in how we feel about the world. We are able to meet and feel stable about our basic needs and security. We are able to expand and grow.


When it's unbalanced what could this mean?

A blocked root chakra will cause you to feel off balance. You might fall into the mindset of thinking negatively. You might not be able to see the glass half fill in situations. You might have stories around not having or being enough. You might find yourself living in a constant state of insecurity or selfishness, or you might be stuck in a fearful space. Feeling like this and having your root chakra off-balance might have you on edge, anxious, nervous and very worried. 

If your root is blocked, it's not just the emotional health that suffers, it’s also the physical. You might be experiencing colon or bladder issues, your lower limbs might feel inflamed. You may experience cramping of muscles and muscle aches.  Some chronic health problems can be connected to a blocked root chakra. 


What crystals are good for the Root chakra?

Red Jasper is known as a nurturing stone providing support during times of stress and illness. It's around your aura with a loving embrace and it provides strength when overcoming obstacles. 

Hematite draws you to the Earth. Is like a magnet pulling your energy to connect you to reality. Making you feel safe and secure. 

Onyx is a powerful protection stone. It helps prevent the draining of your personal energy by processing the negative energy. 

Garnet is known as the stone of Ultimate Health. It gets down to business by helping the flow of Earth Energy to up your aura and into your root chakra.

Petrified Wood is a crystallized form of primeval trees. Captured as a fossil these stones remind you that while the past is important, there is no need to cling on to old issues. Petrified Wood connects you with nature and remiss you that today is the only day that has any real significance.

How do you open the Root Chakra with crystals?

Once you have collected your desired Root chakra crystals, you'll need to know how to use them.

With crystals in hand you can: 

  • Visualize your root chakra like a little red ball of light. Imagine the light getting stronger and stronger as a crystal and fuses strength in the root chakra.
  • Visualize yourself rooting into the core of the Earth like a sturdy tree. Visualize your roots growing deep into the ground. 

How should I wear Root chakra jewelry?

When you're not in an active engaged Crystal healing session you can still benefit the root chakra by wearing crystal jewelry. 

Here are some ideas for wearing Root chakra jewelry: 

  • Wear one root chakra bracelet or two (one on each wrist). When your arms are down they are aligned with that root chakra.
  • Wear grounding anklets (easier than having stones in your shoes).
