What Does an Unbalanced Root Chakra Feel Like?
What are some signs that your root chakra is unbalanced? Check out the lists below!
Excessive Energy [Overactive]
When your chakra wheel is spinning too fast you may be experiencing these types of emotions and reactions to your surroundings:
- Sexual Neuroses or Sexually Frustrated
- Dominating Egotism
- Monotony - feeling stuck
- Materialism which can lead to Hoarding
- Sluggishness which can appear to some as being Lazy

DEFICIENT Energy [UNDeractive]

- Lack of Confidence
- Low Will Power

Both Can lead to-

Both can lead to a multitude of addictive behaviours; shopping, gaming, eating, drugs, alcohol and sex are just a few possibilities.
Problems facing challenges at work
Overactive Aggression can bode as a problem when working with others.

How CAN YOu balance your Root Chakra?
Do you fit either category or maybe a little bit of both? Have no fear, you can always become balanced again! It just takes work. So, if you are willing to put in the time that is the first step.
I will be writing more about what I learned about how to balance it in the coming articles. For now, focus on figuring out the root (pun intended lol) of what is causing these imbalances. I have personally always found that digging up the past can be healing for your present - as long as you use it for healing purposes.
