Have you ever felt insecure about your place in life? Maybe there are things happening outside of you that make you feel like you’ve lost your sense of control. Or maybe uncertainty about your future means you’re constantly living in a state of worry and fear.

I think most of us, at some point in our lives, have experienced these unsettling feelings. It’s especially common to get caught up reliving mistakes of the past or worrying about the future.

Unfortunately, while those worries and fears usually come from a place of self-preservation, they take us away from the present moment and do little to support our total well-being.

That’s why doing the deep, inner work to heal the source of what makes you feel uncertain, scattered, anxious, disconnected, and/or fearful is so important. And that all starts with the root chakra.

30 Journal Prompts to Open and Heal Your Root Chakra

Located at the base of your spine, your root chakra is your energy center for safety, stability, groundedness, strength, and ease within your own body. When your root chakra is open, it means that your basic physiological and safety needs are being met and you have the resources you need to survive.

Beyond this, it also signifies that you feel firm in your place in life. This doesn’t mean everything is absolutely perfect. Rather, it means that you feel confident and secure with where you are and where you’re going. You have the strength and self-trust to continue down your sacred path, wherever it may lead.

The root chakra acts as your foundation. Your body’s other six main energy centers open you up to creativity, confidence, love, communication, intuition, and spirituality. But in order for these chakras to stay open and balanced, your foundation must first be stable and secure.

So when we talk about chakras, we have to start with your first chakra. Your base. Your foundation. Your root.

Because once the ground beneath you is stable, that’s when you can really begin to not just survive but thrive.
