What is the Base Chakra?
The Base Chakra is located at the base of the spine and controls the energy for kinesthetic feeling and movement. It is the foundation of physical energy and spiritual energy for the body.
When it is physically out of balance the symptoms will manifest themselves as lethargy, low levels of activity, low enthusiasm, and a need for constant stimulation. You may experience lower back pain, or suffer from leg pain or immune system disorders.
When its spiritual energies are out of balance, you will feel flighty, disconnected from reality, and distant. You may begin to doubt your beliefs, stop being loyal to long-term associates and organizations, or find yourself deriving little joy from physical pleasures.
Symptoms it's out of Balance or Blocked:
- Feeling flighty
- Low energy levels
- Feelings of being disconnected from others or reality
- Low enthusiasm
- Lower back pain or leg pain
- Easily fatigued
- Lack of motivation and drive
Things That Can Help
Crystals with the red color rays (such as Almandine Garnet, Red Chalcedony, Agate, Red Quartz, and Vanadinite) 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 - 10 minutes are substantial. The benefits are enhanced if the crystal therapy is augmented with Yoga positions that focus on the lower back, and with activities that connect you with nature such as hiking, gardening, rock collecting, and physical outdoor games.
We also suggest using crystal aromatherapy products designed for the Base Chakra.
