Chakra for Anxiety – What You Need to Know

How do chakras affect anxiety?

Every Chakra has a different type of relationship with anxiety.  Let’s take a look at some types of chakra and how they affect anxiety.

Root Chakra

The root chakra is one of the most important energy centres. So, it is imperative to maintain its balance and protect it from every negative energy. According to Crystal and chakra healers, maintaining the balance of the root chakra helps grow your physical, spiritual, and mental well-being.  It is represented by a fiery red colour and is connected to our flight-or-fight response [1].

You may find it difficult to feel the peace, balance, and security of your root chakra is blocked. People who experience an unbalanced or blocked root chakra will feel lost and unstable.

The root chakra is located at the base of your spine. It is responsible for providing the following:

  • Security
  • Stability
  • Grounding
  • Strength

A blocked root chakra may result in:

  • Overthinking
  • Apathy
  • Anger [2]
  • Feeling unable to take action
  • Pessimism
