Fear is an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat.
Fear is felt in the first Chakra and it controls your sense of survival, or your fight or flight response. Physically, it influences the suprarenal glands as well as the legs, feet, kidneys, bladder, and spine. When this chakra is weak, you may feel very tired, overly cautious, afraid of change, needing someone to light a fire under you, and feeling cold from poor circulation. When it is over energized, you may feel aggressive, oversexed, reckless, too impulsive or belligerent.
Located at the base of the spine, the pelvic floor, and the first three vertebrae, the root chakra is responsible for your sense of safety and security on this earthly journey.
This is the first of the chakras of matter. Balancing the root chakra creates the solid foundation for opening the chakras above. Imagine that you’re laying the foundation for a house in which you’re going to live for a long time. A solid foundation embedded in firm soil will provide the stability you need to create a home filled with joy for years to come.
The root chakra is comprised of whatever grounds you to stability in your life. This includes your basic needs such as food, water, shelter, and safety, as well as your more emotional needs such as letting go of fear. When these needs are met, you feel grounded and safe, and you tend to worry less day to day.
Imbalances in the Root Chakra

Eating disorders may also be a sign of a root chakra imbalance.
