8 Powerful Root Chakra Stones for Personal Power and Emotional Strength
Table of Contents
The root chakra is the first of the body’s seven energy centers that makes up the chakra system. Our chakras are affected by our thoughts and actions and are directly related to our sense of spiritual and emotional stability.
When our chakras become unbalanced due to emotional or physical issues, we may experience various health problems.
By balancing the seven chakras through the use of meditation, yoga poses, affirmation, or healing stones, we can bring equilibrium back to our bodies and minds.
The Root Chakra
The root chakra, also known as the Muladhara chakra, is linked to our sense of stability and feeling grounded. When the root chakra is balanced, the individual feels a sense of safety and security.
When this chakra is out of balance, we may feel inadequate, fearful, or insecure.
Imbalance can be caused by:
- Feeling unsettled, anxious, or fearful.
- Having low self-esteem.
- Never feeling satisfied.
- Not having a clear message about who you are.
