Our Root Chakra governs our physical health, sense of security and financial prosperity. It is our physical identity; the way we view our body as well as our right to exist with our basic needs and desires met. When our Root Chakra is healthy, we feel grounded, strong, and comfortable. We have good boundaries and know that we are where we are suppose to be. Our Root Chakra may get injured if we are physically hurt or neglected. It may also be injured if we grow up in poverty or if our sense of financial security is undermined. A weak Root Chakra leaves us feeling anxious, disconnected, disorganized, or restless. It may manifest as poor physical and financial habits, depression, PTSD, or the desire for dangerous, life-threatening, activities. Root Chakra is the foundation that all other Chakras are built upon, so it is vitally important to take good care of it. Healing crystals are gifts of the earth and as such are uniquely well-suited to heal and strengthen our Root Chakra.
