Your 1st chakra is also called ROOT CHAKRA, BASE CHAKRA or MULADHARA CHAKRA. It is located at the base of the spine between the anus, genitals and coccyx. The earth is its element. Its color is red. The themes of this chakra are: Confidence, Strength, Self-preservation. When the energy is flowing in the first chakra, we are confidently grounded, feel safe and secure in life, allow us to be vulnerable, see problems as challenges, live in the here and now, trust in the process of life and value ourselves!
Health problems in the spine, lower back, legs and feet belong to the energetic area of the 1st chakra. The solid structures in the body, the bones, the entire skeleton and the teeth are also influenced by the root chakra. As the base of the spine, it determines immobility or flexibility, defense or openness.
If the energy in the root chakra is unbalanced, we usually have a fearful personality. On a physical level, constipation, lower back pain and sciatica problems, for example, have to do with a root chakra imbalance.
If the energy in the root chakra is balanced, we feel safe and secure in life, allow ourselves to be vulnerable, see problems as a challenge, live in the here and now, trust in the process of life and appreciate ourselves!
