The root chakra is the first of the seven main chakras located at the base of your spine. It's responsible for many things, but mainly it's there to help you feel grounded and secure. If this chakra isn't working correctly, it can cause all kinds of problems, from depression and anxiety to eating disorders and addictions.
The root chakra is color red and associated with physical energy and survival. The elements associated with it are earth, wind, water—anything that makes you feel like you're on solid ground. The stones associated with this chakra are red jasper or hematite.
If you're having trouble with this one, try meditating on the color red (or wearing red) and doing things that make you feel secure and rooted in your body: walking on grass barefoot, hugging trees or holding rocks or crystals close to your heart, taking long baths where you can relax every inch of your body while still feeling at ease in yourself.
