How to Clear Your Root Chakra

What is the Root Chakra?

The first chakra, the root chakra, is located at the base of the spine. This is sort of like your physical foundation, it’s in charge of how you feel in your body – whether you feel safe and secure. 

How do I know if my Root Chakra is blocked?

You can tell your root chakra is blocked if you find yourself feeling increasingly unsafe or unable to ground yourself. It can also become blocked when your connection to nature is lacking. 

Here are 5 simple ways to clear your Root Chakra:

  1. Go for a walk! This is one of the simplest and most effective ways to exercise this chakra. 
  2. Balance your diet – are you having enough fruit, veg, and water?
  3. Say it with me: ooh. This is the sound of the Root Chakra. By repeating this sound it becomes a mantra that tunes and cleanses the resonating chakra.
  4. Visualise a bright red disc where your Root Chakra is, spinning in a clockwise direction.
  5. Hold some smoky quartz in your hands and position them over your Root Chakra. Breathe deeply and feel the energy of the crystal as it connects to you.
