When Open: The Root Chakra keeps us grounded and present in the moment. It is associated with survival and self-care. It helps us link the physical with the spiritual and keeps us centered to our ultimate purpose. An open Root Chakra will help you understand where it is that you belong.
When Closed: When the Root Chakra is closed or weak, we will feel uncomfortable in our own skin. We will be easily distracted, afraid and distrustful of ourselves and others.
When Over-Active: An over-active Root Chakra will take the positives of an open Root to the extreme. It causes obsession with money and security. It inhibits generosity and flexibility to change. It makes us unable to be confident in our future self.
