The Root Chakra is located at the base of your spine, and extending in a funnel shape down toward the Earth. It is your base energy center, connecting you to the physical world. The traditional name for the root chakra is “Muladhara.” In yoga we use the “Mula Bandah” or Root Lock to connect the energy of the Earth up into the body. The Root Chakra is all about our relationship to the Earth, to our earthly life, the physical body and physical security and safety.
Ways to support your Root Chakra are by eating root vegetables (if they are healthy to be in your diet), drink barley tea, take probiotics (live are best), and take a slow meander outside, preferably barefoot in the grass if possible! To connect to your Root Chakra, sit in silence and visualize a bright, brilliant red color at the base of your spine, right around the perineum. You might even extend your Root Chakra into the Earth and connect to the center of our Home.
Symptoms of a malfunctioning Root Chakra are feeling spacey or out of it, not grounded, not present, in anxiety or fearful of the future, not trusting that you will receive what you need when you need it.
