3 Ways To Balance Your Root Chakra
When we feel out of balance in our lives, every part of our inner being becomes unbalanced.
In this series, we will be focusing on each of the Seven Chakras to heal, balance, and receive positive energy for genuine well-being and vitality.
In this article, our main focus will be on the Root Chakra (red), which is located near the base of your spine; your foundation and base.
All sources of trust, loyalty, security, boundaries, family, and instinct reside in the Root Chakra (Muladhara).
When you feel out of control in situations, quick to anger, anxious, depleted, or hopeless, your Root Chakra is what needs to be balanced.

Tip #1: Rediscover Your Grounding
The Root Chakra is all about being grounded in every sense – secure, confident, and strong – which includes the physical.
Taking a walk barefoot or simply meditating on the Earthy ground can reignite the Root Chakra.
Mantras such as “I am grounded, therefore I AM SAFE,” can provide a sense of foundation and security.
Practice what you may be struggling with in the Root Chakra by expressing it in your affirming mantras while in your grounding space.
You may also use the mantra sound that supports the Root Chakra – LAM.
Tip #2: Eat Root Chakra Foods
Don’t forget that what you eat counts too!
Potatoes, carrots, beets, garlic, onions, radishes, parsnips, and other vegetables with roots are all great choices.
Red spices for the Muladhara include cayenne, red pepper, horseradish, paprika, and chives.
Make a focus on choosing red foods as well – red berries, tomatoes, watermelon, pomegranates, apples, and cherries.
Tip #3: Practice Muladhara-Healing Asanas
Realign your Root Chakra during your yoga practice with the squat pose (Malasana), head-to-knee pose (Janu Sirasansana), lotus (Padmasana), and knee-to-chest pose (Pavanamuktasana).
Kegel exercises and Bandha locks will also benefit the Muladhara chakra.
In conclusion, think of your Root chakra as your base of your being- so if this chakra unravels out of alignment, then all other chakras will follow.
Spending a little time on your Root chakra each day will allow your mind, body, and soul to feel completely grounded in any and all situations.
