Practicing root chakra affirmations is an extremely effective way to open and heal the grounding root chakra energy, the first chakra of the spiritual body, associated with survival, safety, security, and vitality, positioned near the base of the spine.
Root chakra can either be deficient or in access to energy. In both these cases, the root chakra is said to be imbalanced. An imbalance of energy, or prana, within this chakra can cause many psychosomatic issues.
The imbalanced root chakra is associated with restlessness, irritability, insecurity, co-dependency, lack of focus, financial problems, dysfunctional relationships, codependency, and much more.
In the context of physical health, the imbalanced root chakra is indicated by pain in the lower back region, constipation, bladder pain, hypertension, and problems in the lower part of the body.
Balancing the root chakra is important for survival and materialistic needs such as food, shelter, clothing, physical and mental health, and financial stability.
Fear is the main reason why the root chakra gets blocked in the first place. All of our fears experienced from childhood to adulthood get accumulated in the root chakra and cause blockages.
As children, our root chakra is generally open, which is why children are always happy and joyful. But as we grow into adults, we are negatively conditioned by society and people at large.
Our needs and wants are greatly exaggerated, and we start believing that we need to compete and crush others to move ahead in life. This kind of thinking awakens the animalistic instinct within us, and we start believing in our fears.

How Does Practicing Root Chakra Affirmations Help in Unblocking The Root Chakra
Affirmations are short positive statements that, when repeated over time, create positive imprints within our subconscious mind—the very act of repeating affirmations over and over again conditions our mind to overcome fear.
Whenever we are alone, our mind tends to bring up negative thoughts. We don’t realize this, but we keep on repeating negative affirmations unconsciously throughout the day.
Just notice how your mind keeps generating negative thoughts like “I’m not good enough”, “What if I fall sick”, “I’m not worthy of success”, “Nobody likes me”, “I don’t look good”, “I’m not confident”, “I’m not capable”, “I don’t have the courage”, and much more.
When we operate unconsciously in auto-pilot mode, we ingrain our subconscious mind with negative thoughts. That’s the reason why we feel stressed and anxious all the time.
What needs to be here is to change this habit of negative thinking into a positive one. For example, if you are facing a lot of stress at this stage of your life, keep repeating, “I’ll be okay, I’ll be taken care of, I’m relaxed and cool”.
Initially, this might sound ridiculous, and you might not believe in it, but as you keep repeating these positive affirmations, your mind will gradually start believing in them.
The best way to practice root chakra affirmations is to imagine a red-colored object in your mind while you’re repeating the words. Again, you don’t have to close your eyes or speak the words aloud.

The root chakra is the base or foundation energy that finds expression of various emotions, traits, and tendencies in the higher chakras. A blockage in the root chakra prevents us from healing the core physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual aspects of ourselves.
Affirmations, when practiced over a period, get ingrained within the subconscious mind and are highly effective in treating the root energy imbalance. You can practice affirmations anytime and anyplace.
