Practices and Meditation To Heal Muladhara/Root Chakra

Chakras are energy points in our body that control our physical and psychological health. According to Hindu and Buddhist philosophy, there are 7 primary chakras located along the midline of the body. The Root Chakra is the base and 1st chakra in our system.

Aspects of Nature: Dawn, dusk, red earth, fire.

Qualities: Groundedness, trust, belonging, lessens feelings of mistrust.

When your Root Chakra is blocked, you can feel anxious, afraid, and unsure about your safety. On a physical level, you may often feel tired or constipated.

Root Chakra has everything to do with sexuality and creativity. A disruption in this chakra, which is blocked by the emotion of shame, may result in sexual imbalances, such as being unable to sexually express oneself or, in certain cases, painful menstrual cycles in women.

The color of the Base or Root Chakra is Bright Red, also known as Muladhara (meaning “support” or “pillar”). This Chakra is located at the base of the spine and allows us to be grounded and connect to the universal energies.

It influences our passion, creativity, youthfulness, vitality, and most importantly, our basic survival instincts. The Root Chakra is represented by the color red, which is also an indication of the need for logic, realistic thinking, and order in our lives.

Just like the core of Mother Earth, it pulses and swells with bright crimson radiant heat, it defines our relationship with Mother Earth. That red is a clear sign of visceral, primitive power. It’s the sparking place for big blasts of raw creation.

Red has the densest vibration of all the colors and is the most stimulating. It immediately pulls your attention; think of how you feel when you see a stoplight or blood. The Root Chakra signals warnings and dangers immediately, and we act accordingly. It is the life force, courage, and vitality.

When you see red, consider a sonic boom of powerful action propelling you forward. Consider this the spark of action. Make this red heat the seat of your physical/spiritual birth. This is the hot coal of your perception, and it’s a great fuel-maker for whatever you want to start cooking.

Moreover, it is also symbolic of our physical strength, our sexuality and the flight and fight response that tends to activate within our body when we sense danger. The Root Chakra is connected with the sense of smell within the body, and it is attached to the gland known as Gonads.

The Root Chakra is thought to be the densest of all, hence why its color is the one representing passion, fire, and danger.

Your Root Chakra is the color of life force and is the most potent, impactful Chakra. Red is linked to the adrenal glands, which control the instinctual “fight or flight” response.

People who love the color red enjoy being present in their physical bodies. They are often ambitious, outgoing, and, yes, fiery! This can manifest as either passion and wild love, or anger and frustration; it depends on the individual experiences of each person.

Think of Muladhara as the base or root of your whole Chakra system—it supplies prana to the rest of the body, mind, and spirit. It’s said that half of the Root Chakra is outside of the body, grounding you into the earth. This is where Kundalini energy begins and enters the body.

Our Root Chakra governs our emotions around love, sex, self-expression, and desire.

It helps you connect to the earth and ground yourself. By increasing the flow of the red energy, you will feel more strong, secure, and stable, both physically and on the emotional and mental level.

How to Balance this Chakra:

When Your Root Chakra is Balanced: You feel vital prana, strong willpower, persistence, and endurance. There is a connection with earth and nature, and a sense of self-preservation. Things are in order—you feel economic, mental, physical, and spiritual stability.

When Your Root Chakra is Imbalanced: There is laziness, narcissism, and existential dread. Negative energy, over-worrying, rage, and resentment build. You may find yourself clinging to those who project a sense of safety. Physical issues might include colon pain, constipation, sciatica, lower back pain, hemorrhoids, prostate issues, or menstrual cramps.

What Causes Root Chakra Blockage: Fear and several stressful events block the Root Chakra. Anxiety disorders,  sluggish digestion,  fear, panic attacks, worry, overthinking, exhaustion, nightmares, physically detached, disconnected from the body, and anger/rage are all psychological signs of Root Chakra blockage.


Muladhara/Root Chakra Meditation:

Since the Root Chakra is all about staying grounded, calm, and secure, doing activities that get you into your body and make you feel linked will help you open it—yoga, pranayama, meditation, or putting your hands in the earth will all help to heal this chakra. However, meditation, in particular, will provide you with quicker results.

Try this easy-to-follow but effective Root Chakra meditation:

  1. Sit up straight with your shoulders back and spine straight. Close your eyes and take deep breaths while attempting to relax all of your muscles. Inhale through the nose, drawing the air as far into your body as possible, and exhale through your mouth.
  2. Focus on the location of the Root Chakra, which is just behind the tailbone. Take note of any tightness in the area.
  3. Since the element of the Root Chakra is red, visualize a red glow at the base of your spine. This glow will eventually spread throughout the area, making it warm and soothing. Rest for 3-5 minutes in this sensation.
  4. Slowly open your eyes when you’re comfortable. Before proceeding with the day, take a few minutes to sit quietly.

You can also try burning earthy essential oils, candles, or incense in your meditation space, such as sandalwood, cypress, cedarwood, rosewood, patchouli, cloves, black pepper, and ginger to boost the process.
