Root Chakra Affirmation Meditation to feel secure and grounded

Chakra (cakra in Sanskrit) means “wheel” and refers to energy points in your body. They are thought to be spinning disks of energy that should stay “open” and "aligned", as they correspond to bundles of nerves, major organs, and areas of our energetic body that affect our emotional and physical well-being.

The first of the physical chakras is the root chakra—the chakra largely responsible for how safe and secure you feel.

A blocked root chakra can manifest as physical issues like arthritis, constipation, and bladder or colon problems, or emotionally through feeling insecure about finances or our basic needs and well-being. When it’s in alignment and open, we will feel grounded and secure, both physically and emotionally.

When the Root Chakra Is Out of Harmony When the root chakra is out of harmony, there is an inability to trust nature. We also feel ungrounded, feel disconnected from Mother Earth, have issues around tribal beliefs (our identity in relationship to tribal consciousness) or family wounds, do not feel secure in the knowledge that our most basic and primal needs are being met (such as food, shelter, clothing, and love), function out of fear, and feel unsafe.

When the Root Chakra Is In Harmony When the root chakra is in harmony, we are profoundly connected to nature, feel grounded, trust in the natural laws, and are able to move with the ebb and flow of life. We also come from a place of understanding that we will always be provided for, that we are connected to our tribal consciousness and family in healthy ways, and we feel safe.
