First Chakra

Sanskrit Name: Muladhara

Location: Base of Spine

Color: Red


Located at the base of the spine, the Muladhara, also known as the root or base chakra, helps us relate to life force energy and helps to ground us. Muladhara actually means foundation which really tells a lot about this chakra. This chakra is linked to survival instincts. When our energy flows easily through our first chakra we feel that we can meet all our needs without worry. When it is blocked we will start to worry and feel anxious. The base chakra is what starts us on any new venture and motivation happens because of our base chakra. You will often hear the first chakra referred to as the tribal chakra as it also relates to how we deal with our family or our “tribe.”
