Problems with the root chakra may occur in life and are best healed by clearing the relationship with the physical world and finding safety in existing. Matters of survival and insecurity around it may be overcompensated with over-confidence, but looking into that ego trap can uncover a deep-rooted issue in the subconsciousness. Not being an overachiever but feeling grounded and satisfied without approval or validation is essential when facing this internal fragility.
