Root Chakra – Where is it and what does it relate to

Root Chakra Symbol

Chakras exist on all levels of the human energy field, some as connections between the levels. If functioning well they act as anchors between these levels.
Light energy and love is always trying to get through the vortices.
When we get inspiration this is energy moving.
We should not let emotions, feelings within get suppressed. We should process these feelings and by feeling them, understand and let go.Common problems are the chakras’ being blocked, excessive (over active) and deficient (under active). Energy Healing can balance your chakras by channelling colour, light and love to them and restructuring if necessary.

Each chakra has a different psychological aspect I will cover the Root (Muladhara) chakra located at the base of the spine here:-

The root chakra spins at the slowest rate of all the seven main chakras. It is related to your physical security and survival. Your negative thoughts and fears around money and your security will unbalance or block this chakra.
