Signs of a Blocked or Imbalanced Root Chakra

  • Find difficulty in being able to see the ‘big picture’ or to have a vision of your life’s purpose
  • Indulge in fantasies because you feel your life lacks meaning
  • Find it hard to gain clarity in your life
  • Fear of looking ‘within’
  • Trouble sleeping, nightmares, headaches, hormone imbalances, sinus and eye issues and feeling burnt out
  • Feel insignificant or that you have no purpose, feeling stuck and unable to move forward, fear of criticism, believing your beliefs are reality, feeling like the world is out to get you or fear of change

How to Unblock or Re-Balance

  • Get purple foods into you – like grapes, red cabbage, blackberries, blueberries, red onions, purple potatoes or lavender tea.
  • Dark chocolate. Seriously. It has anti-oxidants and enhances mental clarity.
  • Meditations on opening your third eye (solfeggio frequency 852Hz)
  • Find yoga poses that help open the third eye – Downward Facing Dog, Childs Pose, Lotus, Eagle Pose
  • Affirmations. Eg –
    • The answers to all my questions are within me
    • I trust my inner self to guide and protect me
    • I trust my intuition always
    • I am connected to my higher power
    • I am connected to the wisdom of the universe
  • Surround yourself with the colour Indigo or Purple – wear it, carry or wear a purple crystal, like Amethyst.
