Muladhara ~ Our Root Chakra
Updated: Jun 27, 2019
The Root Chakra, Muladhara, found at the base of the spine or the perineum represents our survival instincts and our connection to the Earth. It's our Foundation chakra. The colors for Muladhara are Red, which symbolizes courage, physicality and confidence, and Black, which conveys mystery, stability, grounding & the unknown. This energy site spirals downward toward the center of the Earth. We are linked to our physical world through our Root Chakra. Here we face all of our security issues ~ security in safety, security in ourselves, security in the world. We access our physical energy and our basic needs through this chakra. Muladhara is where our survival instincts and personality evolve and come into existence.
In Balance: we appreciate and are in touch with our connection to Nature. We have confidence in Nature's principles, and have a deep understanding for its continuous ebb & flow. Physically, we are centered, grounded, and healthy.
Out of Balance: we are unable to trust Nature, ourselves, or anyone. Our life is focused on our material stature, and fulfilling our desires & wishes. We allow our egos to control our lives by becoming domineering, greedy, and self-centered.
