"I want to feel as grounded as the roots of a tree.”


If you’re out of balance in your first or Root Chakra, you’re standing on very shaky ground. You don’t feel safe, secure, or supported by the earth.

Physical health issues commonly associated with the Root Chakra include lower back pain, sciatica, body weight issues, constipation, hemorrhoids, prostate problems, sexual dysfunction in men, and varicose veins.

Emotional or mental health issues include fear, anxiety, insecurity, extreme vulnerability, worry, grief, depression, self-centeredness, low self-esteem and distrust of others.

Located at the base of your spine, the Root Chakra is the very foundation of our identity, so it’s always wise to start your Chakra Balancing work here. This chakra is associated with basic survival and security in the world, groundedness, trust and boundaries. It vibrates with the energy of the color red.

When the Root Chakra is balanced, you feel strong and supported, safe, grounded, and peaceful.


In my upcoming book, Chakra Secrects, I explain the Aha! moment I had when taught Dynamind by Serge Kahili King, PhD, a Hawaiian shaman and Huna healer. The technique can be used to reprogram the unconscious mind, to remove negative emotions and tell your body-mind what you’d like to experience – and it will follow your instructions. This works well to heal the imbalances of chakra energy.

1) FOCUS – Hold your hands out in a loose prayer-like position.

2) DECLARE – Say aloud the condition you’re feeling that you would like to change, e.g.,

“I feel anxious and I know that can change. I want that feeling to go away.”

“I have pain running down the back of my leg and I know that can change. I want that pain to go away.”

Dynamind affirmation to strengthen the Root Chakra:

“I’m not as strong and grounded as I want to be. I want to feel as grounded as the roots of a tree.”

3) RELEASE – Tap 7 times on the center of your chest, then at the point between the thumb and forefinger of each hand, and on the top bone of your spine (the 7th cervical vertebra).

4) BREATHE – Direct your breath, inhaling with your attention on the crown of your head, exhaling with your attention below your feet.

Repeat until you feel the desired result.

Feel Safe and Secure – Balance your Root Chakra

“The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned.” ~ Maya Angelou

All of the characters in The Chakra Diaries need to build a strong Root Chakra foundation before they move on to achieve what they want in life. Estrella especially experiences the feelings of isolation, abandonment and lack of trust associated with an unbalanced root chakra, and needs to find the safe place within herself that was not given to her in her childhood home.

Your first chakra, the root chakra, is the base of security and safety. It is associated with our basic instincts of survival – food, shelter, health and self-preservation. It is the very foundation of our being and our identity. It is located at the base of the spine, its associated color is red.

When unbalanced, you may feel fear, anxiety, insecurity, self-centeredness, low self-esteem, and physical problems such as lower back pain, sciatica, constipation, weight issues, and even addictions to food or alcohol.

When it is balanced, your mind is calm and clear and you feel a sense of profound physical connection to the earth.

Inhale deeply, hold your breath and then exhale. Bring your attention to the base of your spine. Visualize a red whirling ball of energy there. See the red getting brighter and stronger as it goes down both your legs – filling every cell with invigorating energy. Let it flow out through your feet into the center of the earth. Let the healing red energy form deep roots anchoring you, holding you safe and secure. Know that you belong on this earth. With a deep breath, draw up the healing energy of Mother Earth into your root chakra. Feel the security, strength and comfort of belonging here in your chosen place.
