Acne and the Root

hi, I’ve been struggling with acne for about 6 years. during the course of this I’ve become much more spiritual and compassionate than I had ever thought I would become previously. I have acknowledged these gifts and am ready for this pain to be gone. I have followed all the advice my guides/the universe has sent to me (via pendulum, intuition, etc). nothing has worked. it’s becoming really hard to trust and I feel like I need to more now than ever. what do I do?
I am sorry to hear about the skin issues dear, Believe it or not the cause of acne is deep rooted in thoughts that stem the Root Chakra. It  is the root cause of all skin problems. Acne and other skin problems are the result of an internal imbalance in the body.

The root chakra is developed during childhood and is the root core of our connection to the material world. It governs stability, survival, security, family, your tribal power, it’s main focus is the vitality to the physical body and the will to survive thus understanding of the physical dimension.

Acne is created by many things:
not accepting of the self, dislike of self,
the security of self,
dislike of your own facial expressions
comfort in one’s own body
Feeling not good enough – not as adequate/blessed/lucky/attractive as other people
Sacrificing yourself and putting yourself last on your list
Hiding who you are because you’re afraid other people won’t approve of you
Neglecting your self-nurture and self-care – not taking time out to give back to yourself
Feeling like you can never do things well enough/chronic perfectionism
Criticizing yourself and beating yourself up

In general The root holds the materials for health physically too as it governs the immune system. It envelops the body’s basic needs for safety, money, sexuality, groundedness and boundaries.

More info on the Root:

How to open and balance the root chakra:

HEALING STRATEGY: Physical activity, lots of touch, massage, reconnect with the body, grounding, Hatha yoga, look at earliest childhood relationship to mother, reclaim your right to be here;

Feeding Your Root Chakra


Root vegetables: carrots, potatoes, parsnips, radishes, beets, onions, garlic, etc.

Protein-rich foods: eggs, meats, beans, tofu, soy products, peanut butter

Spices: horseradish, hot paprika, chives, cayenne,


This chakra is fed by getting involved in life. If you are not comfortable with the family you came from then create new families of friends, animals, organizations, support groups, etc. to balance this chakra and make it stronger. Look for evidence that your world is secure.

Establish healthy routines. Drink lots of “FRESH” water, eat healthy foods that are as natural as possible; eat, sleep, exercise, and work at regular times. For example, eating late at night and drinking alcohol or doing drugs disrupts your sleep patterns, which in turn disrupt your hormones, which interfere with your daily activities. You want to establish “stability” – not predictability, that’s too boring. Frequent changes of address are also very de-stabilizing. Allow yourself to experience being in nature: go to a park and walk barefoot through the grass; visit an arboretum, or plant a garden – even if it is just one flower! Hiking in the mountains, or just being around large rocks and stones is very grounding.

Crystals: Agate, Bloodstone, Onyx, Red Jasper, black tourmaline, ruby, garnet, etc.

If you’re into aromatherapy: cedarwood, patchouli, sandalwood are great for skin problems

Definitely balance the chakras and you should see some results i promise, If you change your thoughts you can create miracles 🙂

I hope this helps and i wish you much healing light

much love and light <3
