Balance your Base Chakra with Crystals

base chakra symbolThe 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 Crystals for 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 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.

What Other Crystal Authors Recommend

Cassandra Eason recommends Bronzite.

"Bronzite is a good talisman to bring talents into the marketplace. It encourages consideration of others and so is excellent for family life. It is recommended for the base chakra."


Judy Hall suggests Jet.

"Jet promotes taking control of life. It balances mood swings and alleviates depression, bringing stability and balance. Jet cleanses the base chakra and stimulates the ride of the kundalini force."

Robert Simmons advocates Cerussite.

"Cerussite is a stone of inner alchemy. It stimulates the energies of the root chakra and links them to the crown chakra."



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 Almandine Garnet. You can also try crystals that other authors have recommended such as Jet, Bronzite, and Cerussite.
