The body is full of energy and the energy is always moving to bring peace and harmony to your body. As the energy runs through you, it has center points in the body that helps to protect our bodily systems.
When this energy is running smooth, the body is strong but when this energy becomes blocked, it can cause people to be lacking in their mind, body and soul. The block can cause areas in your body to be out of balance.
Many people wonder how to find out what areas in their body are being blocked and what they can do when this happens.
The most important thing to understand is that there are seven central energy points in your body called the chakras. Each one is represented by a color and by a function in the body. These energy centers help to keep the body strong.
The Root chakra is found at the bottom of the spine and it represents the color red. This is the chakra that allows you to feel balanced and connected. This helps to control our belonging and makes us feel that we are strong and able to survive in life.
The Root chakra allows us to feel connected and to feel safe in everything that we do. It helps us to build our self-confidence.

Feeling stuck or stressed or having nightmares or feeling obsessed with others can be other signs that your Root chakra is not healthy.
