There are 7 chakras, well technically there are more but there are 7 main ones that people tend to focus on. Now I know you all must be thinking now what are all these other chakras? Don’t worry about it; I will touch upon all that in another blog. Today I would like to focus on 1 chakra, and every month I am going to focus on different ones.
The root chakra is very important because it’s what keeps us grounded. It deals with physical identity, survival, stability, instinctual nature, ambition, and self-sufficiency, when this chakra isn’t balanced a lot of issues can arise.

I recently got married and was super excited to get on with this chapter in my life, everything was wonderful and dandy till I got back from my honeymoon. I went back to my crazy work schedule, as I do a lot for work, my husband and I had recently purchased a house and I was back to living with my parents, well we both were. All this wasn’t the problem; it was not till I moved into my own home where I started to lose focus and balance, my root chakra was walking on glass. This all happened because I was raised to be and I am so close with my family so when it came to being on my own I didn’t know how.
I can stay here forever and explain how I cried and suffered about being away from my family but I am sure you all get the idea. My root chakra for the first time ever, or so I feel was the first time ever had no balance and for the first time I felt I wasn’t that strong women I usually am. This is an example of something that in reality isn’t such a big deal that can really throw off your balance. It’s very important to keep the chakra balanced, you always want to stay grounded.
