If this sounds like you, it might help you to learn some ways to clear and balance your first chakra.
This chakra--Muladhara in Sankrit--is the first of the seven chakras. It's the key to feeling grounded, safe, and secure in the world, and as such, it's the foundation for your health, and for the development of all your other chakras.
Clearing, balancing, and opening your first chakra can help you get your feet back under you when you're feeling like you're "losing your grip." It can help you relax, feel calmer and more secure, and let go of nagging fears. It can help you gain the feeling that you truly belong in the universe, and that everything will turn out basically alright for you.
That's a good feeling! When you feel deeply secure, you can turn your attention to more interesting things--relationships, art, creating, career, learning, spiritual development, rock-climbing, ferret-raising--the possibilities are endless!
