Root Chakra (Day 2)
Parts of the Body Governed / Symptoms of Healthy, Over Active and Closed Chakra
Today we are going to talk about what parts of our body are associated with the root chakra and what symptoms to look out for if your root chakra is out of balance or closed. When this chakra is off balance many things can surface as physical symptoms to certain parts of our body. The root chakra deals with the adrenal glands within the body. The areas of the body that are influenced by the energy of the root chakra are the legs, feet, bones (including the teeth), the bowels, large intestines and the spinal column.
Keeping these things in mind, below are symptoms that can occur when this chakra is unbalanced as well as closed. I have also included many emotional and mental difficulties we can experience.
Let’s take a look at what a HEALTHY chakra looks like first.
The State of Mind of someone with a healthy open root chakra has integrity, has a strong will to live, is grounded in reality, loves life, is centered, is grounded, loves their career, does not hate or obsess over money, and feels a strong sense of security in all aspects of life.
The Physical Health of someone with a healthy open root chakra is energetic and is over all healthy.
A lot of times, someone with a strong state of mind can overcome any obstacle with physical difficulties so you state of mind is key.
Now let’s move on to symptoms of an OVER-ACTIVE chakra.
The State of Mind of someone with an over-active root chakra can experience sexual dysfunctions, obsessive-compulsive disorders, eating disorders, control issues, they can be egotistical, judgmental, and sadistic.
Last but not least symptoms of a CLOSED root chakra.
The State of Mind of someone with a closed chakra can be overly aggressive, obsessive, greedy or have major issues with money, overly selfish, experience confusion, restless, paranoid, insecure, have confidence issues, have excessive attachments to material things, fearful, feel misunderstood, feel unlovable or unworthy, feel as though they are constantly in fight/flight mode, and even suicidal.
The Physical Health of someone with a closed chakra can experience the lack of energy, addictions of many different types, immune related disorders, anal problems, arthritis, back pain, candida, constipation or irritable bowel syndrome, genital problems, gynecological issues, hemorrhoids, herpes, immune system deficiencies, leg problems (including knees and feet), sciatica, varicose veins and pain and tension in the body parts this chakra controls.
Now I know that could be a lot of you… I’ve even got some of those symptoms but just because we are suffering from these types of ailments does not mean that getting your chakra aligned and balanced will cure everything. Your state of mind plays a big role in that as well.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms whether they are physical or mind related, PLEASE seek professional medical help as this information is not a diagnoses by any means. While working on balancing your chakras is important… so is letting your doctor know what problems you are facing.
If you are a Reiki Practitioner, knowing these things can help with which chakras to work with the most.
So tomorrow, we will take a look at what crystals and stones will aid in the balancing of this chakra. I’ve got some really good stone combinations to help with different aspects which I think you’ll find quite handy.
In Love & Light Always,
