Root Chakra, also known as Muladhara(in Sanskrit) is the first chakra of our energy body, this chakra is the one that is related the most to the aspects of our physical world.
Root chakra is situated at the base of the spine and it is depicted by the color red.
It is extremely important to balance your root chakra because all the major emotional problems like anger, frustration, jealousy, doubt, depression etc can arise due to improper flow of the energy through this chakra.
A person whose root chakra is blocked suffers from a lot of emotional issues which is mostly related to the materialistic needs, the main symptom of a blocked root chakra is insecurity and lack of self esteem as the root chakra is associated to our basic survival needs.
On the other hand if a person’s root chakra is over active then he becomes too anxious and angry, in such cases an urge to control the situations and people arises which leads to total loss of mental peace that can also cause violent behavior.
The purpose of root chakra is to connect a person to mother earth and physical world, so when root chakra is not allowing the proper flow of energy then the individual feels disconnected with the planet and people, this results in lack of interest towards life.
So, from the above discussion we can infer that it is extremely important for a person to keep his root chakra in balance, here I am going to discuss with you a few symptoms that will let you know if you have an issue with your root chakra.
