The regular practice of following Root Chakra Affirmations can heal, balance, and energize your first Chakra. Read to know more.
When our root chakra is blocked, it may cause a lot of upheavals since it is our “base chakra,” and when it is out of balance, it can throw our entire system off.
So, if you have feelings of fear, anxiety, doubt, or insecurity, your root chakra may want some attention. Try the root chakra affirmations in this post to help clear any blockages in the first chakra and anchor yourself in life!
Root Chakra Meaning
The root chakra is the first of the seven major chakras and is located at the base of the spine, near the perineum. So, it is usually related to the color red.
The root chakra is related to basic requirements, a sense of safety and security, being grounded, and having a solid basis. When we are in balance, we feel safe or “at home” in the world, and our basic needs are met.
Symptoms of Imbalance
When we have a root chakra imbalance, whether it is underactive or overactive, we may experience symptoms in the chakra’s connected areas. Here are a few examples:
- a lack of concentration
- I’m feeling abandoned.
- Anxiety \sFearfulness
- Excessive pessimism or cynicism
How Does Practicing Root Chakra Affirmations Help in Unblocking the Root Chakra?
Affirmations are short positive phrases that, when repeated again, generate positive imprints within our subconscious mind—the process of saying affirmations repeatedly conditions our mind to overcome fear.
When we are alone, our minds tend to wander to bad places. We don’t realize it, yet we unconsciously repeat negative affirmations throughout the day.
Simply observe how your mind continues to generate negative thoughts such as “I’m not good enough,” “What if I get sick,” “I’m not worthy of success,” “Nobody likes me,” “I don’t look good,” “I’m not confident,” “I’m not capable,” “I don’t have the courage,” and many more.
When we function unwittingly in auto-pilot mode, we ingrain negative thoughts in our subconscious minds. That is why we are agitated and anxious all of the time.
What is required is the transformation of this negative thought pattern into a good one. For example, if you’re experiencing a lot of stress at this point in your life, keep telling yourself, “I’ll be okay, I’ll be taken care of, I’m relaxed and cool.”
This may seem ludicrous at first, and you may not believe it, but as you repeat these positive affirmations, your mind will gradually begin to believe in them.
The easiest technique to practice root chakra affirmations is to visualize a red object in your mind as you repeat the sentences.

The root chakra is the foundation or base energy that manifests as diverse emotions, qualities, and tendencies in the higher chakras. A blockage in the root chakra stops us from repairing the most fundamental aspects of ourselves: physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual.
Affirmations, when used over time, become established in the subconscious mind and are extremely powerful in correcting the underlying energy imbalance.
