An overactive root chakra can make it difficult to accept change or let go of perceived wrongs. And it not just situations and emotions, and overactive root chakra can cause you to be too attached to material things and fear their loss or overly suffer when they are lost. You could develop obsessions that lead to eating disorders, paranoia, and greed.
