Muladhara, or the Root Chakra, is located at the base of the spine. In Sanskrit, Muladhara means "root support" and governs survival, security and how you walk in this world. Most traditions describe it as red in colour and when in balance and resonates with security, stillness, and stability. It helps you feel safe, and sure your needs will be met. You often will feel grounded, rooted and present in your body and on the planet. Strength and balance in the Root Chakra pave the way for a life that is stable and secure. It is associated with earth elements and the physical body.
