Balancing Your Chakras: The Root Chakra

There are main energy centers located throughout our bodies. These energy centers are connected to major organs or glands that govern other body parts. Each of these main energy centers are referred to as a chakra. The term “chakra” is a Sanskrit word that translates to “wheel.”  A chakra is a wheel-like spinning vortex that moves in a circular motion forming a vacuum in its center, drawing in anything it encounters on its vibratory level.

There are seven chakras. The first chakra governs survival. A clear and healthy first chakra can create a sense of security, and enables a sense of balance and well-being. 

The first chakra is located at the base of the spine. This chakra rules the lowest vibration of our body and therefore has the slowest wavelength. There are four spokes, or “petals.” Four is also the number of the square and foundations.

The color for the first chakra is red, which is also the lowest frequency of a human's visible light spectrum. Red is also the color of anger and vitality.

The first chakra rules our physical energies. Also known as the root chakra, it governs our energy, heredity, survival, security, passion, money, job, and home.

Even though, the first chakra has many masculine qualities it is also the "seat of the Goddess Kundalini" and is therefore often associated with our relationship with our mothers and with Mother Earth. Our relationships with our mothers set up our attitude toward home, security, and money. If we are cut off from our roots, we feel cut off from the earth as well.
