What happens when the root chakra is not balanced?
People have a lot of energy blocks that prevent them from unleashing the full power of the root chakra. A disparity in the first chakra doesn’t only have adverse effects on physical health but it also has adverse effects on emotional health.

In some cases, one might also feel unwell. A disparity in Muladhara chakra, on an emotional level, is associated with excessive negativity, cynicism, insecurity, greed, illusion, having eating disorders, and survival mode.
