How to Tell if Your Base Chakra Is Out of Balance
When the base chakra is out of balance, energy doesn’t flow or moves very slowly, leading to a stagnation of life’s movement. You can feel stuck in a rut and find it difficult to release emotions that become trapped. Sometimes a loss, such as a death or broken relationship has occurred, and a failure to release the associated emotions leads to dysfunction in the energy hot spot.
Common symptoms include:
- Chronic lower-back pain
- Varicose veins
- Water retention
- Constipation or diarrhea
- Rectal and anal problems
- Fertility issues such as impotence
- Immune disorders
- Feelings of insecurity
- Depression, anxiety or panic attacks.
