Seat and Function of the Chakra
The Root Chakra, situated between the anus and sexual organs on the perineum, serves as the base from which you build your life. It embodies basic trust in the flow of life and in yourself, signifying the will to live. As the first chakra or 'Muladhara,' it is where you establish internal security and a sense of belonging in your environment. During the formative years, especially from birth to around 7 years old, you predominantly experience the energy of the Root Chakra. Often referred to as the base chakra, it provides a grounding effect, anchoring you to the present moment. Firmly rooted in Mother Earth, it imbues you with courage, strength, and a fundamental sense of trust and warmth. This chakra symbolizes the will to live and survive as an individual, influencing physically sturdy elements such as teeth, bones, nails, feet, legs, spine, and the large intestine.
The color red is associated with the Root Chakra. A vibrant, warm red stimulates and nourishes this chakra, conveying attributes of courage, strength, and trust. It represents vitality and strength.
When the Root Chakra energy flows freely, it engenders a profound sense of security. Much like the resilient and contented Happy Buddha, you navigate life's trials with a conviction in your strength and protection. This chakra symbolizes the seat of the subconscious mind, where your inner strength and Kundalini energy reside. Establishing harmony here is the starting point to harmonize other chakras, as intended in the Shoti Maa Chakra campaign.
