The Root Chakra also known as the Base Chakra is the first chakra.
Energetically the root chakra vibrates the color red and is definitely important in our connection in feeling secure and stable in our lives.
SANSKRIT NAME: Muladhara (root/support)
LOCATION: The Root Chakra is located at the base of the spine and radiates down our legs and into mother earth.
PHYSICALLY: The root chakra governs the kidneys, adrenals, spinal column and colon. It is the location of the resting “Kundalini” – the serpentine energy coiled inside every human being. The root chakra activates as soon as the umbilical cord is cut from the mother and it stays in effect for the first seven years of life. Whatever happens from birth to 7 years of age affects the root chakra. If you have had some trauma in that time period and find yourself to be unbalanced it is probable that it is a root chakra issue.
BALANCED ENERGY: When one has a strong Root chakra they feel safe and secure in their environment, like a tree with long roots that grow into the earth to support and nurture.
UNBALANCED ENERGY: I believe this particular chakra is very important as it is the foundation to all of the other chakras so having a strong root chakra is imperative in having a balance throughout your energetic body. Egotistical, dominating and controlling are all signs of an over active root chakra. Signs of an under active root chakra are lack of confidence weak, (feels like) can’t achieve goals, suicidal, sexual energy, feel unlovable, little interest in sex, masochistic.
GEMSTONES: Ruby, garnet, bloodstone, red jasper, black tourmaline.
HOW TO BALANCE: Gardening, walking around barefoot, pampering your feet and even just taking care of house plants are all great ways to help balance and keep your root chakra in balance. Go outside and walk around the yard and feel the earth beneath your feet.
