When the root chakra is blocked or unbalanced, you may feel fearful, out of control, distrustful, and indecisive. Further, being a workaholic may signify an unbalanced root chakra.

When the root chakra is open and balanced, you have self-confidence and physical energy and strength. In addition, you'll feel secure, grounded, and connected to others and have healthy survival instincts.
