Root Chakra Out of Balance?

Michigan State University and our community are hurting today. Many of us are feeling unsafe and scared. I hope this post about the root chakra, the energy center in your body associated with safety and security helps you. The chakras are the focus of reiki. You might not know it, but you can give yourself reiki. My hope is that these tips provide some sort of comfort today after the events of last night. #spartanstrong
