Crystals For The Base Chakra

Crystals for the Base Chakra

Base Chakra

Finding a Balance

The base chakra, also known as the root chakra, is literally your foundation. Located at the base of your spine, it controls the energy for kinesthetic feeling and movement. Because it is the foundation of physical energy and spiritual energy for the body, when out of balance the physical and spiritual manifestations can be very noticeable. If the base chakra is out of balance or blocked you may feel tired, have low energy levels, and no enthusiasm. You may also feel low in spirit, distant, disconnected, and doubtful. There is hope though! Red colored crystals can help unblock and rebalance your base chakra.

Red is the color of passion, energy, and life. It motivates. It is a very strong color—the color of fire and blood. It is emotionally intense and affects humans by raising their blood pressure and speeding up their metabolism. Red is a call to action, a battle cry, and a sign of warning. It excites us, raises our enthusiasm, and gives us energy. Crystals with the red rays are helpful in restoring balance to the base chakra. The benefits of just a few minutes a day with one of these crystals resting between the legs for 5 to 10 minutes are substantial.

Red Symbol

Red Crystals Bring You Energy, Courage, Passion, and Love

Red crystals are used when the situation needs passion: active, involved, energetic action. Red empowers, uplifts, and engulfs. It cures apathy. It gets things done. Red is action and drive. If you are suffering from a lack of power, listlessness, or a low emotional state, you need more red. Like the scarlet ray, the red ray brings us a self-confidence built on fearlessness. When the need is for action without hesitation or self-doubt, use a crystal with a fiery ray of bright red. The fiery passion is perfect for restoring energy back into your base chakra.

Jasper, when it possesses the scarlet ray of influence, is a crystal of physical energy, vitality, and protection. It is a healing crystal of the base chakra, a powerful fire element used in the south area of a home, and used in the devotions to several Goddesses. Jasper is a Seeker Transformer Crystal. Seeker Transformers are talismans used when the desire is to find a way to transform a part of one’s life to a more desirable state. Seekers are used when we need some help to find a new path, a new approach, or in any quest to gain that which we desire but do not yet possess.

In Summary

The base chakra, or the first chakra, is the foundation of the body and spirit. Because of this reason it is very important to keep in balance. When this chakra is out of balance or blocked you may feel lethargic, unmotivated, and lack enthusiasm. This is why it is so important to get it in balance! When the base chakra is working properly you will feel full of life, energy, and hope. Meditating with red colored crystals in between the legs while sitting down can help put the base chakra back into balance. We suggest using such red colored crystals as Red Jasper and Garnet. You can also try crystals that other authors have recommended such as Jet, Bronzite, and Cerussite.
