ROOT Chakra - Blockages


If your root chakra is blocked, you have the feeling of being not at all grounded, and are therefore possibly very worrisome, anxious and high strung.


Your physical and emotional constitution may be very weak and you may literally feel not of this world, as if you don’t belong here as if you are totally separate from everyone and everything else.


Root chakra blockage also goes hand in hand with sexual dysfunction, as kundalini energy is unable to permeate the chakra in this state.



Birth trauma, abandonment, physical neglect, poor physical bonding with mother, malnourishment, feeding difficulties, major illness or surgery, physical abuse or violent relationship, enema abuse or inherited trauma i.e. holocaust survivors, war veterans, poverty conditions.
