Today we are going to discuss about the Base chakra or the Root chakra and What are the best possible ways to balance root chakra using crystals. So let's boost our Root chakra.

The Root Chakra is named Mūlādhāra in sanskrit. The Root Chakra is the first of our energy centres and forms the basis and the starting point for our development and is associated with the earth element. The primal energy of survival is fight, flight, or freeze response and is initiated from Root chakra energy. This is your primal, animal nature of survival.

Root chakra is Located at the base of the spine, the pelvic floor, and the first three vertebrae, the root chakra is responsible for your sense of safety and security on this earthly journey. The word Muladhara breaks down into two Sanskrit words: Mula meaning “root” and Adhara, which means “support” or “base.”

This is the first of the chakras of matter. Balancing the root chakra creates the solid foundation for opening the chakras above. Imagine that you’re laying the foundation for a house in which you’re going to live for a long time. A solid foundation embedded in firm soil will provide the stability you need to create a home filled with joy for years to come.

The root chakra is often thought of as providing energy to other chakras, so if it’s blocked or unbalanced, your other chakras likely are as well. Just like a building, making sure that your chakras have a firm foundation—with a balanced root chakra—is crucial to having a healthy, open chakra system.

Signs of blocked Root Chakra energy

Physical signs

When your first chakra is out of alignment, you may experience pain in your intestines and lower body. This misalignment can manifest in the physical body in a number of ways, including:

Weight gain
Weight loss
Pelvic pain

And the Mental signs are

When working with the root chakra, think about your relationship to yourself and the world around you. Where do you feel grounded? When do you feel calm and stable? When your root chakra is blocked, you might experience some of the following:

Increased distractibility
Rushing from one task to another
Feeling exhausted or lethargic
Increased feelings of anxiety, stress or depression
Feeling stuck
Inability to take action

If you feel controlling, quick to anger, undriven, and self-conscious, your root chakra might need balancing. When your root chakra is balanced, you have energy and self-confidence rather than arrogance or fear, and you feel calm, centred and ready for what life brings.

Here are seven easy tips to balancing your root chakra.

1. See red.
Seriously—envisioning the colour red glowing brightly at the base of the spine, where this chakra is located, is the beginning of root chakra cleansing and balancing. Start with the simple meditation of imaging a bright red light at the base of your tailbone. Picture this red light extending down your legs and feet, grounding you to the earth.

2. Dance.
I don’t care if you “can’t dance.” Close the door and move your body. This is one of the best ways to balance this chakra. Even better—turn on music and sing along, as singing cleanses your throat chakra for an added bonus.

3. Get on your yoga mat.
Many yoga postures are designed to cleanse this chakra. You can use your ‘seeing red’ visualization as you firmly plant your entire left foot onto your mat and bring your right foot up into tree pose. Keep your hip points squarely ahead and your toes tucked in as you place your foot anywhere on your leg besides your knee. Be creative and make your tree pose your own.

Place your right leg into half lotus or engage your core and reach your arms overhead, keeping the base of your neck soft and your elbows straight as you rotate the pinky side of your hands in to engage your triceps. Most importantly, feel supported and connected to the earth as you hold your tree pose for 5 to 8 breaths before switching sides.

4. Take a shower.
This is such a wonderful root chakra cleanser. We are physical animals in addition to being intelligent, thoughtful human beings. Embrace and love your physicality by being completely present as you bathe. Mindfully moving is a powerful form of meditation.

5. walking barefoot.
Take this idea of mindfully moving on your walk with you. Concentrate on your foot leaving the ground and connecting to the earth again with each step. You’ll give your mind a break and cleanse your root chakra at the same time.

6. Essential oils – from calming lavender to sweet and earthy sage, essential oils can ground you in an instant. Pick earthy oils that are connected to the natural world and let these scents bring you back to the here and now.

7. Gardening – dig those fingers down into the earth and reconnect with life at its most base level. From planting flowers and seeds to picking fruit and pulling up vegetables or even weeds, the smallest action in the garden can organically heal your root chakra.

Finally, colours and gems can help bring a chakra into balance. The root chakra’s colour is red. There are some amazing root chakra gemstones out there that can bring the safety, connection, and cleansing energy you need to pin you down in the perfect way. Raising the root chakra energy is about securing your feeling of physical and emotional safety so that you have a solid base to start working through those higher emotions. Usually, the best base chakra crystals tend to be those that share the same colouring as the root chakra – think deep reds, earthy browns, and blacks. The black gems are all about grounding and bring that volcanic powerful energy to the table.
