Staff Speak-Root Chakra

Located at the tip of the tail bone, the root chakra is about survival, stability, and security. When the root chakra is functioning properly, one feels vibrant, secure and courageous.   If you have been told, “you need to be more grounded,” the first chakra you would look at and work with is your root chakra.  There are many stones that assist with opening, balancing, and clearing the root chakra.  The key is to find which stone works for you on an individual basis.

Black tourmaline helps to clear the root chakra of old energetic and emotional debris, clearing the way for new energy to flow through.

Banded Agate assists one in feeling secure and assists in releasing repressed emotions.

Boji stones come in a male/female pair, helping to balance the body.  They gently but firmly grounds the spiritual body into the physical body.

Dalmatian Jasper is another option when working with the root chakra.  It can help to open the base and earth chakras while grounding and centering the body.

Aragonite assists in stabilizing and centering within the physical body.  It is a very calming stone.

Specularite which can also be known as specular hematite helps one manifest their unique spirit on earth.

      Usually whichever stone catches your eye is the stone that will work for you. We instinctively know what is “good” for us and are naturally drawn to that. You could also sit and get in a meditative state and ask is the stone will work with you for the items relating to your root chakra. If you dowse, take your pendulum and ask if the stone is willing to work with you on clearing, balancing, and opening your rootchakra. If you come into the store, all of the staff members are able to help assist you in choosing as well.
