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
  • Sciatica
  • Varicose veins
  • Water retention
  • Constipation or diarrhea
  • Rectal and anal problems
  • Fertility issues such as impotence
  • Immune disorders
  • Feelings of insecurity
  • Phobias
  • Depression, anxiety or panic attacks.
