The root chakra is most known for grounding and security at the base of your spine. The root chakra correlates to the color red and is also associated with survival, health and abundance.
If your root chakra is unbalanced you may be feeling loneliness, ungrounded or anxious. Physically you may be feeling lower back pain or problems with your groin, hips and legs.
There are a few simple techniques used that can unblock and balance your root chakra. You can use mantras, hand poses, yoga poses and your diet. Use the following mantra: “Lam” (“a” is pronounced as “ah”). Focus your thoughts on unblocking and balancing your root chakra while repeating “Lam”. There are chakra points around your hands called Mudra Chakras, and doing simple hand poses can unblock a chakra. For the root chakra, form a circle with your index finger and thumb (similar to an OK sign). Hold this pose for a few minutes while focusing on your root chakra. Another method is using yoga poses, such as mountain pose, warrior pose and bridge pose.
