Root Chakra
Symbol: Lotus Flower with 4 petals
Element: Earth
Color: Red







The Root is the 1st chakra and its Sanskrit name is Muladhara, meaning root.  It’s the chakra that grounds our energy into Earth and spins clockwise at the base of the spine.  This chakra bonds the connection between life force and vitality, giving us a sense of security in the world around us.

When the root of who you are is balanced, life is empowered with a force of energy that ignites your existence with passion to live fully.  If you consistently feel confused, distracted or alienated, most likely the root chakra is not operating at an optimal vibrational frequency.

The goal of securing the root is to feel stable and grounded, not allowing outside forces to control how we feel about ourselves. These are keys to a healthy root chakra.  It’s in building our foundation that we must be specific about what we want and feel safe on this journey. 


To heal this chakra, carry the stones recommended on the root chakra chart and go outside to surround yourself in nature by hiking, jogging, gardening, or stand bare feet on the ground. Take time to connect with your higher self and God to breathe in healing energy, release tension.
