Updated: Apr 20, 2021

Continued from the blocked chakra blog, here I have put together information, advice, and tips to help you work, heal or unblock your root chakra. It is just a brief blog to encourage people to try it or research it a little further. Feel free to comment below and share how you are getting on.

The root chakra is placed at the base of the spine/genital area and is linked to the reproductive system, spine, large intestine, feet, and legs. If your root chakra is blocked or unbalanced you may notice health issues in these areas including lower back pain, endometriosis, polycystic ovaries, IBS, bowel issues, circulation issues in the feet or your legs. The root chakra is also linked to your adrenal glands. These are two small triangular shaped glands located at the top of both kidneys. These glands may be small, but they produce hormones that help regulate our metabolism, immune system, and blood pressure, also having a big impact on how we deal with stress.


Each chakra has its own colour. The Root chakra is linked to the colour red, a strong, powerful colour representing love and passion. When this chakra is blocked or unbalanced these areas in your life may suffer. Red also represents blood which of course keeps us alive. Blood and chakras are similar as they can both become blocked, making us unwell, slowing us down, and causing many issues, sometimes without us even realising.

Thankfully with the incredible world we live in today all of these issues can be treated before they harm us further.


For chakras to become blocked or unbalanced, you may have experienced some kind of trauma in your past, these can be recent, go back to childhood, or even be brought forward from previous lives. You may have had an unpleasant childhood, feeling neglected or unloved, you may have lost a loved one at a young age, you may have blamed yourself for parents separating or you may have been picked on at school. All of these examples are pretty traumatic for adults to deal with never mind a child. And of course being a child, we are less experienced with our emotions, not sure how to deal with them or what they even are.



If you are of a certain age you may well have been brought up with families and friends not talking about their emotions. Back in the day nobody really spoke about how they felt. If something happened to you, you just kind of 'got on with it', feeling foolish to even think of speaking out. I remember thinking nobody else talks about their emotions, maybe they're better at dealing with things than I am? and sadly that's when things can spiral. You start doubting yourself. You look around thinking everyone has this perfect life when in reality everyone is struggling with some sort of pain, be it physical, emotional, or mental. The word perfect, sounds well just that, perfect, however, it gives false hopes and should never be used in the real world to compare ourselves with others.


Fortunately, today, we have so many ways of speaking out. People are much more open, families and friends are more open, we have more accessible books on self-help, helplines to call, physicians to speak to, mindfulness apps, and more, for which I am grateful.

When you feel ready to heal and unblock these emotions trapped in your chakras that have been holding you back in life, your spiritual team will guide you to the relevant people who may help you. Remember we are all unique, we all have our different ways of dealing with things and what may work for your friend may not work for you.

We are all here for a reason, every one of us whilst here on Earth deserves to enjoy our experience. Of course, we will all encounter ups and downs, but it's how we deal with them and how much we allow them to derail us from the original path we came here to take. You've been guided to read this so ask your angels, guides, and ancestors for their continued love, help, and assistance. If you need further help or advice about letting go, please research other options online or through your doctor. There are so many paths out there for us, you will know the right one for you. Some of us will have more healing to do than others which may take a little longer. There's no rush, take your time, you've got this far so be proud. The root chakra is where your fear is held so it may well try and hold you back, don't let it continue to beat you. You deserve to be happy and content.

Stay strong, believe, and as BonJovi would say "Keep the Faith" 🤘

Letting Go:

What you'll need: Pen, paper, matches, fire proof bowl or bin.

Grab yourself a pen and some paper. Now write. Nobody will see it so let it all out, all of that pain, hurt, anxiety that's been building up inside of you.

When you've finished, don't read it back. Go outside with your paper, matches and fire proof bowl/bin and light the paper. See it turn to ash and watch it be blown away by the breath of mother earth. Close your eyes, breathe and smile, for you my dear one have just taken the first steps to a better and more positive you ❤️


Yoga:

child pose - this is my favourite pose, helping me to relax and concentrate on my breathing. A lovely gentle pose to start with if you are new to yoga.

Meditation:

Linked above is a root chakra healing guided meditation video on youtube. This one may not suit you however, head over there, search through the list, you may find a better one for you.


Foods:

Being the root chakra eating any root vegetable will help you to feel grounded whilst working on this area like carrots, parsnips, potatoes, onions, beetroot, garlic, turnips, and ginger.

Red fruits like red apples, strawberries, cherries, watermelon, pomegranates and tomatoes, as well as lentils, green peas, spinach, broccoli, almonds, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, tofu, quinoa, soy milk will all benefit your root chakra.


Vitamins:

Vitamin C will be a great boost for you adrenal glands.


Drinks:

Water and herbal teas. Hot water with a slice of ginger in, dandelion, sage and elderflower teas are all beneficial too.


Crystals;

Red Jasper and Tigers Eye

(you can also purchase a chakra crystal box from the shop page)


Essential oils:

Earthy essential oils like sandlewood, cedarwood, rosewood, patchouli, ginger, and black pepper all work well with the root chakra.


Books & Authors:

Eckhart Tolle - The Power of Now

Eckhart talks about how it is important to live in the now rather than focusing on the past or the future. Again, may not be everyone's cup of tea, but it's just some recommendations I have read that may help you.


Suzanne Adams - Girl Awakened

If you have recently been awakened and new to all of this, I recommend this book. I could relate to so much of it, a wonderful read.


Vex King - Good Vibes, Good Life


Vicki Vrint - The Little book of Daily Rituals


Rebecca Campbell - Rise Sister Rise
