The Root Chakra (Muladhara)

The Root Chakra (Muladhara) is the first of the seven physical Chakras. It is where our safety and security, both material and spiritual reside. This is where we connect to the Earth and is the entrance for the Earth energies to come in. Because it carries our ancestral memories, everyone has challenges or blockages. War, famine, natural disasters, and any event that would harm us are all recorded therein.

It is important to note that having too much energy there is just as bad as not having enough. As such, there are crystals associated with this particular Chakra that may be beneficial to you with respect to restoring balance. However, due to the location of the Root Chakra being at the base of the spine, it can be hard to place them comfortably. One may place them on the pelvic area during use. Recommended crystals include: Ruby, Garnet, Smokey Quartz, Hematite, Obsidian, and Red Tiger’s Eye.

As mentioned previously, the element associated with the Root Chakra is Earth, and as such, this is where we ground to it. On a quantum level, one generally may view it’s energy to be kind of a base or foundation of the others. Being out of balance here also tends to unground each of the Chakras above it.

It is important to remember that the chakra system is all connected, and with all of the new energies and “upgrades” we have been receiving (more detail on this will be discussed at a later date), they now function as one. And therefore, each Chakra’s condition affects the others. With that said, some generally have greater effects on the system than others.

The system is structured so that the lower Chakras feed each other, as do the higher ones, which meet at the Core (Solar Plexus). On an energetic level, when things are out of sorts here, the Core does not have the stability it needs to function correctly. As such, this generally tends to cause a number of issues, which will be discussed at a later date.

All the ancient traumas, which are recorded here, can become liabilities when the energy is not flowing correctly. This insufficient energy flow can cause disorganization, confusion, and can bring old phobias from one’s past lives back into this one. When the energies do flow correctly, we have clarity, balance and stability. Our lives and inner workings are in balance and we do not succumb to things like irrationality, pettiness, and insensitivity. When in balance, we have greater clarity in general on where we stand and our place in this world.

Below is a sound meditation by LOKOSMOTIVOS Meditation Music for balancing and healing your Root Chakra. If/when you choose to use it, we recommend that you visualize a bright red spinning light at the base of your spine growing brighter and larger.
