Root Chakra Overview

The root chakra is your first chakra. Its name is Muladhara, in ancient Sanskrit, and it represents your base, foundation, and root support. Its energy is centered on the earth element and includes feelings of safety, focus, connection, and stability.

Your root chakra represents action. It drives you forward, it wakes you up, and guides you towards change, growth, and evolution.
Through your root chakra, you discover true passion, controlled anger, and incredible drive and momentum. You develop the courage to take risks, to step out of your comfort zone, and to confront your worst fears.

On a physical level, your root chakra is linked to your adrenal glands. These glands are responsible for your primitive survival instincts. Your root chakra is also linked to bodily aspects, such as your urinary system, spine, large intestine, and blood.

On an emotional level, your root chakra contains the energy of anger. However, how you choose to direct this anger will define the challenges you go through and the advantages that you experience from them.
When you harness the powerful energy of anger, control it, and transmute its force into positive drive, purpose, and ambition, then your root chakra can truly thrive at the emotional level.

  • Get outside more, and ideally with bare feet on the earth. 
  • Establish more ritual in your life, even just one thing you do every day. 
  • Make sure to have a very happy and supportive home life situation no matter what! 
  • Practice saying no to things that take you from your most important life purpose or make you feel like you have no ground to stand on.
  • Bring more plants into your home, or go out into nature more. 
  • Yin Yoga (for flexiblity and stillness) or Strength Training (making your body and will more firm, and stable). 

Sit on a chair with your feet firmly planted on the ground. Begin to breathe deeply and imagine roots coming out of your feet into the earth. Release anything that doesn't serve you through those roots, on your exhales. As you inhale, imagine you are being vitally nourished, and call in the feelings of safety and peace that you desire. Once you feel a slight shift, you can begin your affirmation at any time. You can read this aloud for more power or just read it to yourself -- what is most important is you actually believe it.
