The root chakra is associated with your survival needs, your sense of grounding, and your connection to the physical plane. When the 1st chakra is balanced, it brings you physical vitality, a sense of safety and security, stability, solidity, and prosperity. When the 1st chakra is weak, you experience feelings of fear or anxiety, significant challenges within your body, family, and business, and difficulty in manifesting what you want in your life. When the 1st chakra is overactive, you tend toward overeating, excessive spending, greediness, resistance to change, and workaholism.
