Root Chakra- Most Powerful and sturdy

  • Located at the base of your spine (a space between our genitals and anus (the perineum), root chakra belongs to the element- Earth.
  • It is the most instinctual of all chakras, the very basis of our survival needs. The “fight-or-flight”, our response when the situation related to safety and security arises, is initiated here.
  • Associated with grounding, vitality, and stability. It also addresses our basic needs, such as food, water, and shelter.
  • Same is also responsible for our emotional needs and nature, like family loyalty, and inclinations and moral values.
  • As we always need a big will-power to get a self- boost. Every improvement needs bootstrapping to bring functionality in all aspects of your life. This bootstrapping needs a strong foundation for our brain and body.
  • These all can be accomplished very effectively by balancing your Muladhara aka Root Chakra. This Red Color energy center is the densest of all other six chakras stacked above it. If left unattended, causes physical and mental trouble.

What Does a Balanced Root Chakra Means

That says, when your root chakra is balanced, you experience serenity, joy, and inner calm. Will be more compassionate towards yourself and the people you love. No situation seems to challenge your confidence and vitality. You remain present for everything this universe bestows upon you.


“When the root chakra is balanced, you feel grounded and tranquil and yet as liberated as a butterfly”.

“Learn Here About Your Other Chakras Too”.

Ever wondered where all agonies, sorrow, anger, and other negative feeling accumulate?

Video- Root Chakra yoga Sequence

On which planet those boiling issues related to our emotions, which we don’t ever release, stay?

They automatically vanish after time goes. Right…?

I was wrong thinking my suppressed anger will make me look cool and calm in front of my family members and colleagues. And will vanish somewhere in the space of “vast universe”. How wrong I was!!!

Never realized that Newton’s law “<There is always a reaction against every action>” is for us humans too


Accumulated Emotions Stay and Hurt You If Left Unaddressed

  • The Root Chakra represents our whole body. The flesh, bones, the large intestine and lower parts of our bodies such as hips and legs.
  •  As I talked about the stored anger above, hips are the major depositor of the ill-will.
  •  If you’re experiencing constant back pain in the lower area, or *Sciatic Pain, the Muladhara Chakra needs your love and attention in order to overhaul it.

*Learn here everything of sciatic pain and “The Yogic Cure”.
