The First Chakra: Root Chakra

The First or Root Chakra is found at the base of the spine, the point you are sitting on right now as you read this post! Its name, Muladhara, means "root," and the paths of energy in this chakra extend downward like a root through the legs and feet to contact the solid earth below.

Its color is a deep red, and its symbol is a lotus of four petals within which is a downward-pointing triangle, symbolizing the root energy.

The Muladhara or Root Chakra is the foundation for the whole chakra system. Its function is to respond to any issues concerning survival: eating, sleeping, exercising, recovering from illness, making a living, or simply feeling safe and secure. If our survival needs are properly taken care of, then we can safely focus on other levels, such as learning, creativity, or relationships. If there is some damage to the chakra, then we find ourselves repeatedly coping with threats to our survival, which keeps us from accomplishing other things. These threats might be changing jobs, having to move, recurrent health problems, weight problems, or a general feeling of fear for one’s safety.

When the chakra is closed, we lack stability. When it is too open, we are frozen solid. The ideal state would be to have stability and flexibility in balance.

The element associated with the Root Chakra is earth. Earth is solid, earth is heavy, earth is below us, and earth supplies us with our survival needs: food, clothing and shelter.

Eating is a very basic Root Chakra survival activity. Without food, we do not survive very long. Eating disorders often indicate a Root Chakra imbalance. Eating is a grounding activity—it helps to bring us down, helps us to feel settled, calm, secure. Excess weight can be an attempt to ground out high stress, to protect the body, or to replace proper grounding techniques. Eating too little or being chronically underweight can be an attempt to avoid grounding and physicality because it seems too frightening or confining.

Red, black and brown healing crystal gemstones are popular for the Root Chakra. Visit our Root Chakra center to shop our selection of healing crystal jewelry and accessories designed to help heal and open your Root Chakra.

Back to the Basics: What are Healing Crystals?

Natural crystals give out vibrational energy. This energy is usually positive and is beneficial to the person touching the crystal. The person’s well-being, balance, and wholeness are improved due to the energy emanated by the crystal.

Different crystals and gemstones give out different levels of energy, making for a wide range of effects. One example is emeralds, which improve a person’s body in areas like breathing, the heart, blood circulation, the pancreas, and eyesight. Another example of a crystal with healing powers is the amethyst. Aside from helping hormones and helping improve the function of the circulatory system, the cleansing organs, the immune system, and metabolism, the amethyst healing crystal is also one of the best stones to use for relieving stress and soothing the nervous system.

Science has established that crystals vibrate at constant frequencies. Quartz, for example, is used in watches because of this very fact. A crystal is also used in some gas lighters as it is able to produce a spark when a force is applied to it. This is known as the piezo-electric effect where an electric field is produced when a crystal is squeezed or stretched. This effect was discovered by an engineer in 1927. It was determined that by applying voltage to certain crystals they would vibrate at a constant rate of anything between 33,000 to over 4 million times per second. So the fact that crystals do have energetic properties is well known.

There is also evidence that crystals have been used for thousands of years. All living things have a life force. Whether or not one believes in the concept of a soul, this force/energy/chi/qi, can still be experienced in terms of heat and electrical. Medical science uses various instruments to measure and monitor these energies. From the simple thermometer to the very high-tech equipment used to monitor heart rate or brain activity.

Where crystals have their own individual vibrational quality it is believed that they are able to interact and influence the different layers of our individual auras and the chakra energy centers of our bodies. It is believed that negative or stagnant energy can accumulate in the aura, which can have an adverse effect on the person. Releasing or freeing this negative energy can help to create and maintain a state of physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.
