In this paper, the boundedness from below of multiplication operators between $\alpha$-Bloch spaces $\mathcal B^\alpha$, $\alpha\gt 0$, on the unit disk $D$ is studied completely. For a bounded multiplication operator $M_u\colon \mathcal B^\alpha\to\mathcal B^\beta$, defined by $M_uf=uf$ for $f\in\mathcal B^\alpha$, we prove the following result: (i) If $0\lt \beta\lt \alpha$, or $0\lt \alpha\le1$ and $\alpha\lt \beta$, $M_u$ is not bounded below; (ii) if $0\lt \alpha=\beta\le1$, $M_u$ is bounded below if and only if $\liminf_{z\to\partial D}|u(z)|\gt 0$; (iii) if $1\lt \alpha\le\beta$, $M_u$ is bounded below if and only if there exist a $\delta\gt 0$ and a positive $r\lt 1$ such that for every point $z\in D$ there is a point $z'\in D$ with the property $d(z',z)\lt r$ and $(1-|z'|^2)^{\beta-\alpha}|u(z')|\ge\delta$, where $d(\cdot,\cdot)$ denotes the pseudo-distance on $D$.
