ROOT CHAKRA YOUR GROUNDING FORCE
- The root chakra, known in Sanskrit as "Muladhara
", which means "foundation
", is the energy source located at the very base of the spine. When sitting in the classic cross-legged meditative position, or the yogic lotus position, all of the chakras align themselves and form a bridge with the earth and the sky.
Red is the color of the energies of this chakra. The Muladhara is the one that is in contact with the earth, an energy center literally acting as our foundation, our grounding force. A solid root, a strong foundation, is a vital component of many different things. Just as you wouldn't be able to build a house without a strong, well-made, solid foundation, it is extremely difficult and stressful to attempt to build a successful, happy or healthy life without a solid foundation.
To really enrich the energies of the root chakra and to ensure it is open, unblocked and spinning happily, take a little time each day to meditate outdoors or even to simply appreciate the beautiful world we live in.
