Your Red Chakra Meaning

Your red chakra is your root, which means it keeps you grounded mentally, physically, and emotionally.

As the first chakra, and the root, your red chakra provides energy to the rest of the six chakras. Keeping your root chakra healthy can have a positive effect on the health of your sacral, solar plexus, heart, third eye, and crown chakras. 

A Blocked Red Chakra

Are you feeling disconnected from reality and not in control of your emotions and wellbeing? You could be showing signs of a blocked root chakra.

When your root chakra is blocked, you will experience a variety of physical and negative emotional symptoms. For this reason, it will be hard to ignore a blocked root chakra.

Nurture and Nourish Your Root

Your diet has a big effect on the health of your root chakra. To nourish it, eat foods that are a rich red color. Cherries, strawberries, tomatoes, 

Keep the blockages away by chanting mantras that keep you grounded, in the present moment, and in touch with reality and your emotions. 

The LAM sound is a mantra that connects you with the earth when chanted.

Balancing Your Root Chakra 

When your root chakra is cleansed, open, and balanced, you will feel grounded, secure and confident. To nurture and balance your root chakra even just closing your eyes and sitting in stillness while doing some grounding breathwork will help you reconnect with the earth and your body.

Hematite stone is used to balance negativity and is a powerful tool when meditating or trying to balance your root chakra. Red jasper and basalt can also be useful for the root chakra.
