1st Chakra (or Root Chakra)
1st Chakra Overview

Balanced: Stable, safe, secure, trusting, basic needs met, feelings of belonging with family & community

Unbalanced: Insecurity, fear, isolation, greed, weight problems, hemorrhoids, constipation, sciatica, degenerative arthritis, knee problems, bone disorders

In our physical state as Earth bound beings governed by the laws of gravity, we are essentially dependent on the ground for support. A healthy 1st Chakra is based on this need to be physically grounded and supported in all areas of our life. Issues of primary importance are our physical survival (food, shelter, sleep, etc.), feelings of safety and security, and a sense of belonging. So typically, how we are cared for by our immediate family unit or caregivers early on in life and our initial interactions with society as a whole come together to form our foundation.

A person with a balanced 1st Chakra feels safe and secure, protected and trusting. Self-worth, self-confidence, stability, and a quiet strength shine through in a calm, easygoing manner that affirms feelings of belonging in family, work, and community. Physical needs are expected to be met, and they are with grace and ease. A sense of always having enough fosters a willingness to contribute and to share.

Imbalances in our 1st Chakra can show up as “less than” feelings, such as insecurity, anxiety, nervousness, worry, suspicion, self-consciousness, isolation, and greed. And in the process of trying to overcompensate for or underplay these feelings, a person may: overeat or under eat; be over stimulated or lack energy; be careless and sloppy or meticulously neat; be egotistic and domineering or weak in character and passive; or be extravagant and wasteful with money or a money miser.

The important role that the 1st Chakra plays in supporting you cannot be emphasized enough. Imagine the Chakramid with an underdeveloped or overdeveloped base. A small, puny foundation would be perilously unstable, and an over inflated, excessively large foundation would skew the proportion and shape of the rest of the structure on top. Either way results in an unsettling, unnerving feeling at your very core.

“Taking one last whiff of the roses, Jessica opened the door and returned to her “cell.” She quickly turned to take a look at the bathroom door again so she could remember exactly where it was, but it had already faded into oblivion, which did not really surprise her.”
