And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.Khalil Gibran

The Sanskrit word for the root chakra is Muladhara. Mula means “root” and Adhara means “support” or “base”. It is associated with the color red and brown, and the element connected with the root chakra is earth. The root chakra is located at the base of the spine, along with the underlying three vertebrae. Other parts of the body that relate to the root chakra are the lower back, spine, knees, the pelvis, skeletal system and muscular system.

It is the chakra closest to the earth, and it is the chakra that is responsible for your grounding with mother earth.

The root chakra is all about the primal aspects of life. How you are surviving in this world or your will to live, and our “flight or fight” responses. It is the energy field that governs the experience of safety, basic needs and instincts here on this earthly journey.

The root chakra also gives us information about our family relations, sense of belonging, misconceptions, opinions and grief. Your ability to focus, stay present, feel stable and secure are part of the root chakra. This also includes your sense of dependability, reliability, and self-responsibility.
